Insights Techtastic technology news digest – 1 February 2017

Welcome to Techtastic.

In this week’s edition, we share the US tech sector’s reaction to Donald Trump’s most recent executive orders, as well as a series of security “issues” that bring into question his pummeling of Hilary Clinton over “Emailgate”. We watch tech companies and their employees sue each other left, right and centre (there were so many litigation stories we had to leave some out, including this one about Tesla competitor Faraday Future, although we guess this means we’ve now just included it), and suddenly understand why Google is trying to inspire everyone to leave the planet. Oh, and we also cover virtual odour reality (yes, you read that correctly) and a new Japanese toilet control convention. So read on, read on.
