Re/code on TV (and Radio): Tablet Market "Crashing" and Google Wants Guinea Pigs

What Re/coders said on the air this week, collected in one convenient place.


Some of Re/code’s writers and editors took to the airwaves this week to talk about the latest in tech news. Here’s what they said, in one convenient place.

Re/code co-executive editor Kara Swisher spoke to genConnect on Monday about the site, the Code Conference and the big picture of Silicon Valley.

James Temple wrote last week that he’d be willing to participate as a test subject in Google’s research of healthy human physiology. Not everyone is quite so eager to be a guinea pig, but James appeared on NPR’s Here & Now to discuss the pros and cons.

On Wednesday, Kara took to CNBC* to talk Twitter. Wall Street analysts aren’t so sure about the company, but are they missing a growth opportunity?

The next day, fellow co-executive editor Walt Mossberg made two appearances on CNBC, first to talk about his exclusive interview with Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly, who says sales of tablets have taken a nose dive.

Walt also carried on into Squawk Alley’s “throwback Thursday” segment to discuss the first iPad and what he thought of it back in 2010.

Not to be outdone, Kara made two appearances of her own on CNBC on Friday. First, she chatted with the Squawk Alley team about this week’s earnings reports from LinkedIn and Tesla.

Kara’s second clip concernd China’s Alibaba Group, which plans to go public next month. But what regulatory issues might it face en route?
