This week the digitalSoup starts with a dash of tech news about Gennova, a little talk about a new webcam and more iPhone 8 details leaking. We build up the stock with a great story from Jason and a rant about the stupidity of people trying to make viral web content, followed by a splash of some quick tips for photographing fireworks. To really bring the flavor home we whipped up some sweet movie and tv news! Pull up a chair and get ready because the digitalSoup is on!
