It’s earnings season, so we cover quarterly numbers from Check Point, Juniper Networks, Microsoft, and Amazon.
Tech Byte: Silver Peak & SwyMed
Stay tuned after the news for a Silver Peak-sponsored Tech Byte interview with SwyMed. SwyMed makes telemedicine solutions for healthcare, including a portable backpack for first responders that enables audio and video connections to clinics and hospitals. We talk about how SwyMed and Silver Peak teamed up to provide high-quality connectivity from the remotest of locations to improve emergency response and patient outcomes.
@tim_cook is right. Bloomberg story is wrong about Amazon, too. They offered no proof, story kept changing, and showed no interest in our answers unless we could validate their theories. Reporters got played or took liberties. Bloomberg should retract. https://t.co/RZzuUt9fBM
