Weekly Round Up #50: Alphabet beats Apple, Travelstart’s $40m, Uber’s new logo, smartphone rumours

Welcome to Weekly Roundup, our podcast discussing the latest tech trends, innovation and news from the last few days.

This week on BurnCast, Senior Reporter Stuart Thomas talks to Gearburn Editor Andy Walker and Reporter Jacques Coetzee.

The team talks about Alphabet becoming the most valuable company in the world, Travelstart raising a cool US$40-million from Amadeus Capital Partners and MTN, Uber’s new rather bizarre looking logo and the new round of rumours when it comes to smartphones.

The team speaks about what they are watching, reading and listening to.

And the Tweet of the week has something to do with South African president, Jacob Zuma, offering to pay back the money.
