Samsung stops production of the Galaxy Note 7 after packing it with "so much innovation it became uncontrollable." Verizon wants a discount on its Yahoo purchase after the largest hack in history and possibly the most intrusive government surveillance program. Amazon Music Unlimited, released today, is ridiculously cheap - if you own an Amazon Echo. Who should buy Twitter? Disney, Google, and Apple won't.

  • Jeff thinks Facebook should buy Twitter, Leo thinks the only person who could buy Twitter is a "Wall Street bastard."
  • Leo, Danny, and Jeff have a wide ranging argument about the journalistic ethics behind printing leaks from illegally hacked data
  • Danny Sullivan "can't even" with Allo.
