Meet 1-900-CHATBOT – DTNS 4520

Pluto TV co-founder Ilya Pozin announced a new TV startup called Telly where they’re giving away 500,000 TVs for free. Each set contains an always-on secondary 9-inch screen beneath its soundbar, which shows a variety of widgets and ads. The Wall Street Journal’s Kate King has a story called “Online-Only Startups Adopt a Bold New Strategy: Opening Actual Shops”. Is the future of online retail in its past? Caryn Marjorie has launched a chatbot version of herself where fans can talk to it for $1 a minute.

Starring Tom Merritt, Rich Stroffolino, Justin Robert Young, Roger Chang, Joe, Amos
