Each week, Consumer Reports experts produce a short audio segment about consumer electronics and technology for "Into Tomorrow with Dave Graveline." The recording featured here was aired on the prior weekend's broadcast. "Into Tomorrow with Dave Graveline" covers the latest in consumer electronics and technology available today and into tomorrow. The show airs on more than 180 AM and FM radio stations around the U.S. and can be heard globally through various sources—including America's Armed Forces Networks and podcasts of previous "Into Tomorrow" episodes.
