To kick off this week's show, hosts Tyler Orton and Hayley Woodin tackle the business news headlines that caught their eyes this week:

Car ownership is declining in Vancouver. The iPhone celebrates its 10th birthday. Visa and Wal-Mart Canada make up after a public dispute that saw the credit banned from many stores in Canada. And Bitcoin had a bad start to 2017 with a loss in value.

And in the feature interview, Jim Orlando, managing director of OMERS Ventures, talks about how his tech predictions for 2016 turned out to be highly accurate. So what does he see ahead in 2017 for Canada’s tech industry and venture capital? He talks about IPOs, Bitcoin, the future of augment reality and virtual reality, cyber security and artificial intelligence.
