Playstation 5 vs Xbox Series X, Amazon Opens Your Razr Box, & Embargoes That Go Too Far
Play • 1 hr 4 min

The first thing we cover on today's episode is the fact that YOU NEED TO VOTE. Then, we move on to slightly less important things like AMD's new graphics cards and how they compete against NVIDIA's RTX series. Next up is a quick peek at how Amazon bizarrely opens your Motorola Razr Box before sending it to you, followed by a chat about the hype and marketing behind Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X and why the embargoes are a just a tad crazy. Lastly, we play a little game called "What we liked and didn't like about a bunch of the latest smartphones." Did we also mention that YOU NEED TO VOTE?

#291 2021 Hyundai Elantra First Impressions; Why a Fender Bender Can Be So Expensive
We recently purchased a new 2021 Hyundai Elantra for the Consumer Reports auto testing program, and we share our first impressions on the performance, infotainment, and styling of this small sedan. We also discuss why many modern cars seem to lack a traditional bumper, and why the cost of minor dings and fender benders can be surprisingly expensive. We also discuss the role a tire's sidewall can play in ride comfort, recent government reports regarding booster seat weight limits and how they impact CR's testing, and if a car from Alaska could have any issues at its new home in Florida.     ----------------------------------- Have a question for our experts?
