First up, we take a look at reactions to the President’s position on net neutrality, and how it changes things for the FCC going forward. Then, we talk about why the New York Attorney General wants to ease off on proposed regulations for Uber and Lyft-like services, and why that might be good for car service companies but bad for drivers. Plus, the fracking business has been called a water industry with an oil and gas byproduct. That's because of all the very dirty water created by hydraulic fracturing that has to be disposed of. But a small army of innovators think THEY have the chops to clean this water up.
