WHEELS TURNING ROUND AND ROUND. This week we're talking about, yes, YIKYAK, the zombie social media platform where you can post hyper-local bullying for all the local elder millennials to enjoy. Then, Google joins Samsung and Apple in not shipping chargers with its new phones! This is ALL APPLE'S FAULT. Meanwhile, Intel is trying it with new gamer-focused Arc-brand GPUs that have cool code names like "Battlemage" and "Celestial" and honestly those should just be their real names. Finally, dessert this week is an episode from Wall Street Journal on the tech workers who are taking on not one, but TWO full-time jobs… and getting away with it.
