This is the first of our new News Roundup episodes, which will usually appear on Fridays and discuss several of the week’s top tech news stories. This week, we cover: – Advertisers in the UK and now the US boycotting YouTube and to some extent Google more broadly over ads appearing next to undesirable content – Samsung’s pre-announcement of its Bixby virtual assistant, which will ship with the Galaxy S8 smartphone it’s expected to announce next week – Twitter testing a paid subscription service for power users, apparently built around Tweetdeck and costing $20 per month – Apple releasing a new, cheaper, 9.7” iPad and a video creation and editing app called Clips, and its acquisition of Workflow. As always, you’ll find links to these stories and other things we discussed on the website at podcast.beyonddevic.es.
