It's the best of Always On, Season 5!
All but one episode in Season 5 included one of our Future Tech installments. However, our favorite of the bunch got us "backstage" with Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead, Lukas Nelson, and a handful of other rock stars. Performing in one of the most unique venues in the world, these legendary musicians are changing the way we consume music. So here it is again, folks: a look inside the more than state-of-the-art, TRI Studios.
Since the beginning, our concept of "torture-testing" a gadget has evolved from stairs in the back yard and a freezer in the break room to the beaches of Hawaii and a barbecue on the side of an RV. Whether it was the S4 Mini facing off against a kickboxer, the Active enduring a stomping on par with a stampede, or throwing an Xbox controller at CNET Editors' Choice TV, Season 5 set the precedent for future gadget torture testers everywhere.
This season also introduced a new segment: the mini Molly rant. We determined our first try was the one to include in our best of show: Molly versus Google Glass. Whether you're walking down the street, drinking a coffee, or driving an SUV, please refrain from letting your mind wander up into that tiny box in the right-hand corner of your field of vision. Your life is in front of you.
That's it for our best-of! Tune in next week for a special edition of our bloopers episode with a few clips from behind the scenes. As always, thanks for watching!
