The Best Tech I Missed (Or Skipped) In 2023: The Leftovers

From Apple Park in Cupertino; to Ice Cream Bay in Shenzhen; to a hundred-mile ride across Long Island on an e-Bike … MrMobile has covered a lot of ground this year. And I’ve had some firsts along the way: sitting down with Rick Osterloh to talk mobile AI; being among the first to fondle the new iPhones (for the first time); and delving ever deeper into the world of foldables – first with a handful of hinges from Oppo, then deep inside the Dongguan durability dungeons of OnePlus.

But despite seeing and doing all that, my ever-narrowing range of interests … and my ever-ascending age meant that I just couldn’t get to every product that I wanted to. I’ll explain why that’s not likely to change in 2024 – but first, let’s close the book on 2023 with all the best tech I missed (or skipped) in MrMobile’s latest episode of The Leftovers!
