Iterations: The Improbable, Captivating Pivot From Orchestra To Mailbox


The tech industry brought a lot of drama this week, so there was lots to dig into in this episode of CrunchWeek, the TechCrunch TV show where a few of us writers give our personal takes on the stories that dominated our headlines for the past seven days.

Watch the video embedded above to hear Leena Rao, Anthony Ha, and I discuss Google’s decision to axe its RSS-powered Reader app (and the tech press’ collective wailing about the decision), the new Samsung Galaxy S4, an apparently fantastic phone with a very awkward launch event, and the surprise Friday announcement that Dropbox has acquired Orchestra, the 13-person startup behind the super popular Mailbox app, for some $100 million.
