Warcraft III fails, micro-transactions, Ring’s security flaws, and Chinese spies- TNCS Ep 62

In entertainment news this week we discuss the Super Bowl ads for Disney+. Warcraft III: Reforged is taking some big lumps and Blizzard fans are angry.  EA released their quarterly earnings and it is apparent that micro-transactions and online sales are here to stay. In tech news we debate on the security flaws of Ring and other internet of things devices.  We give the details surrounding several arrests connected with Chinese espionage and theft.
