Airing on Thursday, July 23, 2015: First up, we'll talk to Sucharita Mulpuru, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester, about Amazon ahead of its earnings call. We'll also pay a visit to Minnie Ingersoll, Co-founder and COO of the secondhand car company Shift, at the company’s used-car warehouse. And Portland Oregon’s two defining cultures — tech and bikes — have come together to improve transportation infrastructure, in the face of the city's exceeding growth. A new app will anonymously track behaviors, preferred routes of cyclists along with 200 underground sensors placed throughout Portland to count all the cyclists who roll over them - with or without the app.
