These days it's super easy to build an app with robust back-end APIs.  No one has time (or let's be real, desire) to do dev-ops, so we talk about FireBase and it's myriad of offerings from simple key/value store through various extensions like image resizing.

We have some weird phone news as Microsoft is back in the phone game again, Air BnB tries to go public even with a big COVID hit to their business (and Apple breathing down their neck) and we get our first iTunes ratings and review! WOOT!
