There was a lot of tech news over the last week including Microsoft's announcement that it will acquire Nokia for $7.2 billion. We all agree that this was a necessary move for Microsoft but have varying opinions on why MS needed to buy Nokia.

The number's tell us that the iPhone is far from being “your mother's phone”, however, lately perception and reality don't tell the same story.

Robb try's to explain why 79% of malware targeting Android compared to 0.7% targeting iOS is not nearly as bad for Android as it sounds.

CBS and Time Warner make up, Verizon buys itself from Vodafone for $130 billion, and, Allison tells her friend to buy a GS3.
