Wrapping Up December, Douding Thomas Style
This week, we're getting a little weird. Rather than a normal Douding Thomas episode, we've got a normal episode with news, Tech Yeah, and the whole shebang. Then Cliff and I recap the month that was, first talking about David Ruddock and Esper, and then Laurence Moroney and Stargate AI.
Our tech yeah item is a simple cable from Plugable that is a simple USB-C to HDMI cable. It added a third monitor to my setup and maybe it can do the same for you. I also added a second item, in case the first doesn't come back in stock.
