May 17, 2017, 03:35 PM

We kick off the podcast with Amazon’s announcement of the Amazon Echo Show, their newest in-home entertainment devices which may drive smart home technology integration, shows you news video highlights, allows you to make hands-free video calls, and much more. Kaspersky Labs, a Russian cyber-security firm is being unfairly questioned by US Senators about their reported role in Russian attacks. Following that discussion, we dissect another ransomware attack that hit Russian, British, Korean, and French systems last week. We change direction and discuss how we can get back to the basics of human interaction and emotion, relying less on computing technology and communication. And finally, Apple is investing heavily in US manufacturing, jobs, products, and salaries which all spells to a future of quality mobile computing devices.
