Eight months after reports began circulating of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 catching fire, the company has released a detailed report of the device and the battery issues that led to so many combustions in the pockets of unsuspecting customers.
But was it Samsung or the device’s battery maker who was truly at fault for the issue? And how can the South Korean corporation recover from the superbly public failure of such a prominent product?
We dig into these questions on this week’s episode of GearedUp, with GearLive‘s Andru Edwards and GeekWire’s Todd Bishop.
We also take a look at a new iPhone feature that’s designed to help users locate their lost AirPods, the wireless earbuds that come part and parcel with the new iPhone 7.
Plus, we dive into the ever-expanding world of music streaming by taking a look at Tidal, the streaming service owned by rapper Jay Z that touts a hi-fi audio quality option and higher royalties for artists. Mobile service carrier Sprint announced this week that it has taken a 33 percent investment in the company, a puzzling move to say the least.
