Week 92 News Roundup – Amazon News, Apple Payments, Mobile & Twitter Earnings

Earlier this week, we did our Question of the Week episode, which covered the state of retail, while this News Roundup episode covers some of the week’s big tech news:

  • Three Amazon topics: its announcement of the Echo Look fashion-focused device; its launch of its “Subscribe with Amazon” hub; and its Q1 earnings
  • Recode’s report that Apple is working on a peer to peer payments service a la Venmo and possibly also a debit card
  • Mobile earnings from Verizon (last week), AT&T, and T-Mobile, and a brief discussion on bundling and TV too
  • Twitter’s earnings, which featured the best user growth in two years but also the first year on year revenue decline for the company.

As always, you’ll find links to these stories and other things we discussed underneath the SoundCloud player embedded below.

As ever, you can also find the podcast on iTunes, in the Overcast app, or your own favorite podcast app. Here is the RSS feed for the podcast if you want to add it manually to your app of choice.
