This time around on the "Tech Ranch," host Marlo Anderson and the gang look back at the technological developments of 2017. Dave Blair, Jim Walsh and the Tech Geezer co-host.

As Marlo notes. the past year has been a particularly interesting one for technological breakthroughs, in areas like medical technology (stem cells, spinal cord repair), driverless cars, drone tech, and apps to make your life a little less complicated.

Then there's gene therapy, cancer-fighting nanotech, and a look at how the tech explosion is changing the economy and the job market.

By contrast, 'Rockin' Dave' Blair offers some notable examples of how tech fell short in 2017 - as well as not not-so-good developments that may scare you a little bit.
