The New York Times signs up over 1 million digital only subscribers, Verizon ditches the two year contract, Jennifer Granick pleads to to not give up our freedom at the Back Hat Conference, Epson tries to kill the ink cartridge (good luck with that), Uber is a Full-Stack Startup but Snapchat is not, Facebook continues to make Messenger attractive to businesses, Stems makes it possible split music into 4 separate tracks, Nico Gerard comes out with a watch that uses Apple Watch as an accessory (yes, really), Elon Musk can neither confirm nor deny the future of self-driver cars, Chris Sacca wants Jack Dorsey to be Twitter’s CEO, and VR movies are coming to Oculus (just like we said).
