Taco ‘Bout NothingButTech88 | #PNWeekly 261

By Jules Wang July 16, 2017, 6:00 am

Kentucky Fried China? This year not only marks Huawei’s 30th anniversary as a telecommunications company founded by a former member of the People’s Liberation Army, but it also hails the same for KFC entering what was back then a market just beginning to open up to capitalism. We didn’t expect this sort of synergy to come out of it, though.

What synergy we’re talking about plus more iPhone 8 speculation and a conversation with one of the forthcoming names in mobile tech critique on YouTube and a recent recruit to the Android Central video team, Jacklyn Dallas aka NothingButTech88.

Make sure you’re charged and ready for the Pocketnow Weekly!


Watch the video recorded from 3:15pm Eastern on July 13th, or check out the high-quality audio version right here. You can shoot your listener emails to [email protected] for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air the following week!
