about this episode

It was a huge week for earnings, and a disappointing one for Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo. Google backed away from its nearly-$,1000 share price. Microsoft shares sank on a $900m writedown of its Surface tablet. And at Yahoo, despite page view gains, revenue was down. Meantime, Tumblr is putting porn in the search ghetto. The NSA disclosed it looks up to “3 hops” away from a suspected terrorist. And straight hookup app Tindr launched for Android. Sarah Lacy of PandoDaily and Rafat Ali of travel news startup Skift join us for TWiST’s news roundtable.
