First off, there were lots of new phones to play with this week. We reviewed the iPhone 6s and played with two new-and-improved Nexus phones while livebloggin’ from Google’s event.

We introduced a new series this week, Living With Data, which will help you decode how the massive amount of personal data hidden from your is affecting your life and your future.
