It's time to get one of these. They're cheap! (Relatively speaking.)


First, the good news: After an unexpected delay, the latest episode of the Cheapskate Show has arrived!

The bad news: This is our penultimate episode. We'll tell you more in next week's final (for now) show. Until then, sit back and enjoy while we discuss:

  • The ColdSnap countertop ice-cream maker unveiled at CES. Dave wants two; I think it's ludicrously overpriced and unnecessary.
  • New phone, no charger: Apple and Samsung are no longer bundling AC adapters. Right move or unfair practice?
  • Tile trackers: Why it's time to seriously consider getting one -- unless you want to wait and see if Apple gets in the smart-button game.

You can listen to the new episode (and past ones) right here:  

If you're looking for all the links and other info we referenced in the show, you can find them in the show notes, which are available in the embedded player (above). Just click Description.
