Wolff on Apple Music & why unbundling is gathering steam

Hands off encryption! That’s what the US tech industry has reiterated to the Obama Administration this week. In a strongly worded letter to the president, two industry associations representing major software and hardware companies said they opposed any policy actions or measures by the federal government that would undermine encryption technologies. Boom Bust’s Ameera David weighs in.

Ameera is joined by RT correspondent Lindsay France to talk about Apple’s new music-streaming service. Lindsay tells us about its plans to team up with celebrities and gives us a sense of how the competing service from Jay-Z and Tidal has been received so far.

After the break, Bianca Facchinei delves into the most recent news surrounding the data hack at the Office of Personnel Management in Washington. The head of the agency is expected to meet with the House Intelligence Committee as officials investigate where the hack originated and how they could have prevented it.

Erin Ade sits down with Max Wolff – chief economist at Manhattan Venture Partners. Max tells us his thoughts on Apple’s new music-streaming venture and gives us his take on new changes adopted by the FCC for the cable industry.

And in The Big Deal, Ameera and Edward Harrison discuss the cable industry and whether unbundling TV packages is gathering momentum.
