Airing on Friday, January 9, 2015: New York City is poised to lift a ban on cell phones at schools. We look at the impact - the ban created a mini industry around phone storage – at some schools, kids had to leave their phones in vans parked outside. What happens to those businesses now? Plus, how well have you kept up with the week in tech news? We have a CES-themed version of Silicon Tally with Casey Newton, The Verge’s Silicon Valley editor. We'll also preview the Oculus VR head-mounted display at CES.
