Trends with Benefits: Busted cheaters, Google routers, and a fire drill

So our building in Portland, Oregon had a fire drill today. It became a constant theme throughout the show. You’ll hear.

Between interruptions from a mysterious speaker in the ceiling, the topic of the day was the leak that exposed millions of Ashley Madison users at the hands of hackers this week. We may not all have sympathy for these guys, but there are real concerns for all of us here. What happens when it’s you?

Google is getting into routers. They’re gadgets that a lot of people overlook, but also an area in need of some evolution. Will Google’s feature-packed $200 OnHub win consumers over with its ease of use, or will consumers shrug and buy something cheaper?

Throughout this week’s show, we also take questions and comments from live Periscope viewers!
