This is our News Roundup episode for the week and also our only episode, as we didn’t have time for a Question of the Week episode this week. This was something of a quiet week with only a couple of major announcements, but we still found some stuff to cover. We talked about Microsoft’s new Surface Pro, LeEco’s US retrenchment, Google execs’ comments about monetization Assistant and Home, and Apple News hiring its first Editor in Chief. As always, you’ll find links to these stories and other things we discussed below.
