TNT 1755: Paint it Vantablack
Changes are coming to government oversight of net neutrality rules that were approved two years ago. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai announced a new plan that signals a move away from those rules, and towards self regulation by the industry itself. Instagram now has 700 million active monthly users, gaining 100 million in the last quarter. The photo sharing site is experiencing meteoric growth having doubled its user base in the last year. Twitter may be showing signs of new life. The company announced its quarterly earnings and revealed its best quarter for user growth in two years, with nine million new users in Q1. We also investigate robot rage, Amazon's new camera that will take photos of you while you're getting dressed, and whether or not you can own a color. Plus, Alex Kantrowitz from Buzzfeed is here to tell us why we should fear the AI winter.
