Episode: Amazon boroughs out of NYC

Amazon boroughs out of NYC
Jeff Bezos & Amazon clearly don't have a New York state of mind, as the tech giant walks away from its planned HQ expansion plans, opting to focus instead on its Virginia HQ2 while distributing an optimistic 25,000 jobs across existing facilities. What happened? Is this really about business? Or politics? And is there a lesson here? We think so. Plus our Fast Five: - UK moves closer to anti-trust action against Facebook; - Huawei's 5G prospects just improved in the UK; - The digital disruption of key fobs; - Apple looks to a post-iPhone future; and - IBM's Watson makes a guest appearance on non-IBM clouds. Our Tech Bites Topic: AI, Generative Adversarial Networks, and the risk of not-so-deep fakes. Our Crystal Ball: MWC19 is right around the corner - here's what we expect and would like to see in the world of mobile tech!
