This week, Gordon Mah Ung, Melissa Riofrio, and Jon Phillips discuss:

  • Phil Schiller’s trolling of PC users at the latest Apple event
  • Intel’s decision to retire its “Tick-Tock” roadmap strategy
  • Microsoft’s creepy AI tweetbot, TayTweets, which answers tweets and DMs in the voice of a so-called millennial
  • Whether Apple will eventually win its legal battle with the FBI

Programming note: We shot this episode of the PCWorld Show one day before TayTweets was gamed by the Internet and started spewing bile, forcing Microsoft to shut down the account.
