Re/code isn’t just on your computer — our writers are also on TV. In case you missed them the first time around, here are four appearances by Walt Mossberg, Liz Gannes and Kara Swisher this week on CNBC.
On Tuesday, Walt discussed the increasingly crowded world of Internet television and how to find the right TV set-top box. For more on this, check out his “TV from the cloud” review of the Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast and Amazon’s new Fire TV from Tuesday.
On Wednesday, Liz joined Street Signs to discuss a recent European court ruling that people should be able to ask Google to delete sensitive information from its search results. As she wrote the following day from Google’s annual shareholder meeting, CEO Eric Schmidt says that the ruling strikes the wrong “balance.”
That wasn’t the only privacy issue on tap this week, though. A new study from the Electronic Frontier Foundation delved into how open dozens of tech companies’ books of personal data are to the government, and Kara came on Squawk Feed to discuss on Friday.
On the same show, Kara also talked about ballooning tech valuations with CNBC’s John Fortt. Where a $1 billion valuation “used to be a big deal,” she says, now young companies like Pinterest and Uber are seeing much bigger dollar signs.
