After some talk about the new Pixel Buds, the Pixelbook Go, and Google Stadia (which is ever closer to release), they get to the big one -- the Pixel 4! JV asks Jaime about his first impressions on the Pixel 4 XL (in the panda colorway, no less) and the two come to so ...…
 
The Google Pixel 4 is a fairly controversial phone. It’s got so much great going for it, but it also falls short in a few key areas. Our review calls it the “but” phone, because it has an amazing camera, but it lacks an ultrawide lens. It has remarkable performance, but the battery life is not great. It’s really good, but here’s a reason why it ...…

Google introduced us to a whole bevy of devices today, interwoven around a story. We saw announcements about Stadia and Pixel Buds. We saw the new Pixelbook Go, Nest Mini 2, Nest Wi-Fi, and the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL. There were few surprises, but those cameras still kick everyone else to the curb. Join us as we discuss everything Google ...…
 
TK Bay and JV catch up for a bit while lamenting over some iOS troubles, despite how impressed they are by the cameras.

Microsoft came swinging with great updates to their Surface line, which now includes not just a new AMD-powered full-sized laptop, but now updated 2-in-1 Surface Pros, the Surface Buds, and a couple of smaller foldable dual-screen devices that were really surprising. Thunder E of Booredatwork attended the event and joins JV to talk about everyt ...…
 
There used to be a really easy way to install Google Apps onto the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, but that service is no longer.

Meanwhile, Microsoft surprised basically everybody in the world by announcing an Android smartphone...coming in 2020, ...…
 
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro is one of the most gorgeous pieces of hardware to ever come out of the Chinese OEM, or any OEM for that matter. It has stunning hardware, a wonderful camera that works brilliantly in low light. But it’s missing the one thing that every phone needs to succeed - the brains. No Google. No Google Play. No apps. No good. But i ...…

Adam, Jonathan, and Joe reunite to discuss the latest flagship from Huawei. The Mate 30 Pro and family are all official, and pretty awesome. Except for one thing - Google didn’t show up.

The latest Apple keynote has come and gone, but was there enough to really get people excited about the company's latest products? Are larger, bug-eye cameras enough to excuse the design?
