There’s a lot of little tech news this week, and we’ve got the perfect podcast to sum it all up. This week on The Vergecast, Nilay, Paul, and Dieter run through topics like Samsung’s ad that mocks the iPhone, the update to Pixel 2 XL screens, and Logitech shutting down Harmony Link hub services.

Also, The Verge’s video series Next Level is back! Lauren Goode returns to talk about the season premiere, which deals with creating holographic videos, and how that can be used to preserve memories.

There’s a whole lot more in between that — like obviously Paul’s weekly segment “One 2 Won (One)” — so listen to this whole show to get everything you need.
