We then move onto the controversy that is Facebook Messenger, and how Facebook is forcing users to download their app in order to access messages on mobile. Careful folks, this could get heated! And then there’s U2’s album mysteriously ending up on everyone’s iPhone. Invasion of privacy or harmless free music? The guys wrap up with a lovely chat about Disrupt San Francisco 2014.
