#219: Cyber Speak

September 6th, 2019 · 80 minutes

What kind of week would it be without Flo's mention of Beverly Hills, 90210? After they get that out of the way, your intrepid hosts rant about what Google Maps and Play Music need fixing, before checking back on their status as Gympie-Gympie Bush influencers. (We're officially out of the running.)

Then, sit tight as we dive into the new features of Android 10, including who will get the update and whether the Dark Theme has saved us any battery life. We also chat about the FTC's latest fine against Google for violating children's privacy on YouTube and wonder why the company would bother putting a camera into a smartwatch.
