If Apple is going to compete with Amazon's Echo (or anyone else in voice, like Google) then they're really going to have to improve Siri! http://www.cnet.com/news/apples-echo-rival-could-see-you-with-built-in-camera-amazon-siri-facial-recognition/

Facebook will help marketers show ads to non-Facebook users who visit websites and applications in its Audience Network ad network.

Wow, 8" floppies at the center of US nuclear program computers - that's maybe a little too old school for me! http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/26/us/pentagon-floppy-disks-nuclear/index.html

When was the last time any of you even SAW an 8" floppy disk?

Do they need a phone business if they can make a compelling mobile software push and get subscription revenue that way? Even if they can keep the enterprise market happy, they've probably got a few more battles to go for
