Pay attention!

Featured reviews on iOS in US are 3, 5, 10, 11, 13 YEARS old! The show has been completely overhauled. The hosts pictured here have been retired and/or replaced. This used to be a show that woke me up with financial news and even a business roundup from Asia. Now it’s fluffy with soft interviews of boring little start ups and touchy-feely discussions with minor players.
