On this installment of the Tech Ranch, Marlo asks, "do reviews influence what you buy online?"

The conversation is how reviews influence us, and how they affect business.

Also: smart phone sales are down (while prices are going up). We'll find out why. And how our devices are spying on us and how you can protect yourself.

Marlo sits in this week with his pals "Rockin" Dave Blair, and Jim "Tech Geezer" Walsh.
