This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast:  We talk about Amazon’s mysterious grocery store plans, analyze the impact of Samsung pulling the Galaxy Note 7 from the market, and stage an intervention to get GeekWire’s John Cook to finally back up and upgrade his phone.

Plus, a rundown of Amazon’s new Music Unlimited Service, our favorite new iOS 10 features, and the return of the GeekWire Trivia Challenge.

We’re on location at Fox’s Seattle, our podcast sponsor this week, a family-owned jewelry and design business that dates back more than a century in the city.

In the third segment of the show, we’re joined by Zoe Mann, the president of Fox’s Seattle, and her father Chai Mann, the company’s chairman, to talk about their high-tech jewelry design software, 3D printing, e-commerce in the jewelry business, and entrepreneurial lessons from the jewelry business.

We’re joined on the show by Andru Edwards of GearLive, who holds the distinction of appearing on the GeekWire radio show and podcast more times than any other guest; and GeekWire reporter Monica Nickelsburg, host of the Generation App podcast.
