Time to Break Up (with) High-tech?
In this special "call in" issue, we ask is technology all that we think it is? And why does it always seem to get us into trouble? Sure, we have some great times, but what about the lies, the lack of transparency, and all the misinformation? Could it be time to break up (with) high-tech? Plus our Fast Five: iPhone manufacturer Foxconn slices $3b in costs; Using AI, predictive analytics, and connected vehicle data to reduce highway accidents; The US applies political pressure against China and Huawei; and Google enhances geolocation and screen-time monitoring. Our Tech Bites Winner: Facebook, with its use of questionable targeting (eg fake news) of its critics. And our Crystal Ball: Will smart-phone prices increase or decrease in 2019?
