Talking about the demise of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Plus, Twitter adds some new features and more!

Today's Episode

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is not having a good year. It was released to a lot of praise, but, that quickly turned into exploding phones. Now government agencies are telling to not to use this phone. I was thinking of buying one, but, not anymore. I like to have my phone not set fire to my place. Samsung needs to can get this crisis taken care of. It has hurt it's brand big time. Just like Twitter, this is not their year. Twitter is trying to find that sweet spot for growth. Lately, it is testing tools and notification to get people to say on Twitter. It needs to find that cool factor again. I do not think it's there yet, but, it can get it's mojo back.
