#268: The Right Kind of Distraction

August 14th, 2020 · 84 minutes

We're all about indulging in distractions this week. We talk about our seemingly neverending frustration with the transition over to YouTube Music, then dive into all the drama associated with Epic Games' epic lawsuit against Google and Apple. We gush at length about the new Microsoft Surface Duo and how it might shape the future of Android devices to come. We continue to wonder out loud whether there's any hope for Wear OS. And we muse about how the Pixel is the second coming of the Nexus lineup.
