It was a busy week in the tech world. In between rumors of billion dollar acquisitions, we plucked three interesting stories for you to sink your brain into this weekend. Mathew Ingram joins the show for a look at how LinkedIn (s lknd) is evolving into a media entity. Erica Ogg and Kevin Tofel help us examine whether Apple’s (s aapl) iPhone is just becoming a dumb platform for Google (s GOOG) and others. And finally, Janko Roettgers breaks down the breaking (as of recording time) news of YouTube subscriptions.
