TDH – Yelp review for my ATM

This week on the show, I quickly recap the Apple announcements which occurred on Tuesday, including the quick sellout of the iPhone 6+. We speak about a number of legislative and judicial announcements this week, from the coalition of tech companies that signed a letter to push the Email Privacy Bill forward, to a ruling about digitization of library books in the EU and what’s known colloquially as the ‘Yelp’ bill. T-Mobile had an August full of new customers, and we dive into some of the cool things that NASA is doing. All that and more this week!
