There’s no Question of the Week episode this week, but here’s our roundup of the major news of the week. We kick things off with a discussion of Jawbone’s reported liquidation and what it might mean for the broader wearables market. Secondly, we discuss preliminary disclosure of financial or operating results from Samsung, LG, and Xiaomi, which emerged this week. Third is a quick evaluation of a report from CIRP that Amazon now has 85 million Prime subscribers in the US, which Jan is skeptical of.
