Elise and I read a lot of tech blogs. Usually, we tweet about what we're reading, but 140 characters doesn't leave much room for nuance.
In each episode of Truth in Tech, we'll cover seven of the week's most interesting stories, along with one new app, should it catch our fancies.
On the slate for this week: Leap Motion's gesture tech makes moves, as do $1.3m of stolen iThings. In America, there are more internet-enabled devices than people to swipe 'em. Zipcar's bank account grows as its freedom shrinks. The MTA releases an app that is useless to 65% of New Yorkers, 90% of the time. Plus, apps to enforce those New Year's Resolutions.
