Despite the flurry of news this week, Andy and Flo find some time for a subjective point of view.

We attempt a bit of hype for the all-virtual Google I/O 2021, the dates of which were announced this week. Then, say goodbye to LG as we walk through our favorite phones. And hear how Andy is doing with the Nest Hub's built-in sleep tracking capabilities.
