Aired on Thursday, December 18, 2014: First up, we talk to Stephen Cobb, security researcher at ESET, about Sony’s decision to pull The Interview. Then, Andrew Bartels, research analyst at Forrester, talks about the tech industry’s reaction to the volatile ruble. And when you think of "salary negotiations," picking apples and cherries isn't the first job that comes to mind. Individual farmworkers don't control much about their work environment. But in Washington's Yakima Valley, growers and workers alike say the growing use of cell phones has shaken up the labor market.
