Airing on Wednesday, December 31, 2014: First up on today's show, we talk to Tal Klein of Adalom about Sony attacks. Plus, New Year’s Eve is Uber’s equivalent of the Super bowl – its busiest day, or night of the year. It’s also when the company gets the angriest tweets for its use of surge pricing. What strategies does Uber have in place this New Year’s Eve to meet consumer demand while not infuriating its customers when they see the tab? We'll also talk to Ustream CEO Brad Hunstable about their plans for a special New Year’s Eve internet broadcast.
