Feel overwhelmed by the never-ending waves of technology news? Let The Wall Street Journal's technology columnists help. Join David Pierce, Joanna Stern and Christopher Mims every Friday as they talk about the most important tech trends -- and why you should care.
#20: Tesla's Got a Brand New Car
David and Joanna talk about the many strange consequences of sharing your kids' pictures on social media. What happens when they get older and see what you've shared, or their image ends up somewhere you never expected? Later, Tim Higgins joins from a hotel room in Los Angeles, where Elon Musk revealed the new Tesla Model Y, the SUV that promises to get all your kids to soccer practice faster than ever. Last, David sits down FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and our own telecom reporter Sarah Krouse to talk about what the FCC says is its consumer priority No. 1: the never-ending, all-consuming, ringing-off-the-hook robocall problem.
#19: What Facebook Means When Facebook Says Privacy
Following Mark Zuckerberg's big encryption pivot for Facebook, David, Joanna and Christopher unpack the privacy talk. Reporter Katie Bindley comes in to share her own stories of Facebook's creepy ad behavior, then David interviews Frank Yang, CEO of Simplehuman, about why talking trashcans are people too. The Weekly Upgrade: Christopher solves your ducking autocorrect problem.
#18: Phone Reveals, Facebook Deals, 5G Appeals
David, Joanna and Christopher each bring their favorite new thing from this year's Mobile World Congress, the annual showcase of all things smartphone. Then WSJ reporter Sam Schechner comes on to discuss his investigation into apps that share sensitive data-everything from your diet to your pregnancy status-with Facebook, and what those companies do with all that data. Later, Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon talks about the 5G future, and what all this new and confusing technical jargon might actually mean for our lives.
