Andy is experiencing some severe bouts of Mercury in retrograde as he tells the tales of his flailing tech. Flo switched to the OnePlus 8, and she's wondering why the Pixel is lagging. We discuss why Google is (again) in the antitrust hot seat, and why employees are demanding the company stop doing business with police departments. We divulge all about Google Photos' latest redesign, ChromeOS's increased reliance on virtualization, why Google is fact-checking images, and what Pixel owners can expect from the newest update. For our After-Dinner Mint, we'll play around with Google's Pinterest-wannabe, called Keen.
