#170: Look Out For Your Data

September 27th, 2018 · 70 minutes

We take a walk down memory lane as we recall the very first retail Android device, the T-Mobile G1. We also discuss a search event that Google held earlier in the week, though we're not feelin' the new search engine improvements.

Then, we'll explain why Google and its competitors are rallying around for more lenient privacy laws, and what it means to have a separate "Chinese internet". (Not great, Bob!)
