Marketplace Tech

with Molly Wood

07/10/2017: Like a freeway with a special lane for Hondas, but not Toyotas

July 10, 2017

It's Christmas in July for Amazon. The retail giant is kicking off its summer online shopping sale this week: Prime Day. (Which you've probably seen the advertisements for.) But how sweet will the deals actually be? Adam Burakowski, deals editor at The Wirecutter, joined us to discuss whether all the hype is worth it. Plus: we'll look at news that thousands of tech companies are engaging in a day of action on the 12th to prevent the roll back of net neutrality rules. Net neutrality is the idea that internet service providers should give equal access to all information and websites. To get a better idea of how this concept works, Charles Duan, a staff attorney at Public Knowledge, gave us some analogies. And afterwards, we'll hear from one company — Vimeo — about how they're preparing for this day of action.
