Will the Net Neutrality/Title II debate end? Not today as we discuss some updates to what the broadcasters are doing to try to prevent information about the rates and deals the content delivery companies pay for that content.

Can you be compelled to unlock your smartphone if you’re using a fingerprint? The State of Virginia (and the Supreme Court) seem to think so. We talk about why the literal letter of the law shouldn’t be used when the spirit of the law should apply.
