This week Re/code made a couple visits to our partners at CNBC to talk about the tech issues of the day.
First up, Walt Mossberg thinks the new Google Photos product, which was revamped and split out from the Google+ social network, is now “best of breed,” according to his review. On CNBC, he elaborated on how Google’s artificial intelligence smarts and free pricing put pressure on Apple.
Later in the week, Kara Swisher addressed skepticism about how quickly Apple Pay is rolling out. Kara’s take: mobile payments are inevitable, the particulars are less interesting. She also said a tech bubble pop isn’t imminent, but she’s hearing increasing worry about companies like Uber, Airbnb and Pinterest keeping up with its substantial valuations.
