This week on the show, we talk briefly about the injunction that SpaceX was granted against the United Launch Alliance on account of the Russian sanctions, as well as Target’s accelerated attempts to switch to Chip and Pin credit card security. We talk some Amazon news, shots of their new phone and expanded same-day delivery. Also the hardware cost of Google Glass, it may surprise you. All that and more this week on the show.
