YouTube TV is a new $35 per month service to bring a bundle of broadcasts and around 35 affiliated cable network channels to subscribers in a standalone app that will launch this Spring. 

At Mobile World Congress, Google's Senior Vice President of Hardware Rick Osterloh told a small group of journalists that the Pixel premium line will live on, but only in phones and tablets as the company has no plans to make another Pixel laptop. Osterloh also said they had no plans to create any more of the previous models.

The Raspberry Pi Zero W is an upgrade to the $5 Raspberry Pi Zero that was first released in October of 2015. The W version takes the same specs from the original, adds support for 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and costs a measly $10 plus tax.

We talk about what happened with the Amazon Web Service outage, breakdancing robots from Boston Dynamics, a new mobile conferencing app for the enterprise, and Harrison Weber, executive editor at Venture Beat, explains what happened to the moss piglets that might have lived inside your Android phone.
