It was just revealed that the factory was a fake and they did not manufacture what they said they would OR hire as many people as they claimed. Foxconn lost their subsidies. I hope ReplyAll does a follow up story.

If you were going to add a new host, it should have been Sruthi and it should have been years ago.

good story, but why lead introducing a new host w him saying, referring to reparations as "what white people owe black people"? my family came here from Central Europe after WWI... we were serfs until the 1860s... why am I guilty for what some southern people did decades before we came here?

Wow... What an emotional rollercoaster! I went from curious to angry to entertained and then the part with Jean had me in tears. The elderly should be encouraged to embrace newer technology for those very reasons.

the minute I heard the opening of this and heard with the mystery was I knew exactly what the outcome was going to be. the first thought that came to my mind is either she left it on an exchange or she left it on the darknet on the market that she was buying stuff from.
