#311: Amber Is the Color of Your Energy

June 10th, 2021 · 67 minutes

Android 12 Beta 2 is out, and Flo wants her Material Theming now! Andy continues to justify purchasing his new iPad by researching if anyone's figured out the "chain link fence" removal feature Google promised us many moons ago. We talk about Stadia's arrival on Chromecast devices this month and a new Apple feature that benefits us all. We also talk about how Google is changing its ad business to comply with French regulators and why the folding Pixel phone might actually be a thing. Before we go, Andy tells us about a new Instagram fad: Samsung cosplayers.
