Many of us use our smartphones everyday, maybe for email, a camera, social media and navigation but don’t necessarily account for that when we’re looking to buy one. We talk to a personal technology expert about how much we expect to pay for a quality phone and our rising expectations of how it should perform. We also hear from an experienced Wisconsinite about economic development in rural areas and we take a look at the latest news on Week in Washington.
