On the latest episode of DT Live, hosts Greg Nibler and Parker Hall discuss some issues people are having with the screen on the new Samsung Galaxy Fold phone, Facebook’s foray into A.I. voice assistants, the end to Amazon and Google’s video wars as YouTube comes to Fire TV, and more.
Other topics include new plans to roll out facial recognition for 97% of airline flights, SpaceX’s pledge to save us from rogue asteroids, and Yale scientists’ efforts to create zombie pigs (not really).
