#314: Win Some, Lose Some

July 3rd, 2021 · 65 minutes

Andy and Flo love to digress into a conversation about their favorite foods and this week's episode is no different. We talk about the magic that makes Windows 11 run Android apps natively and why Microsoft and Google have agreed to start suing each other again. We're giddy over more carriers adopting RCS, and we wonder if Chrome OS will ever become an ample gaming platform. We end on a happy, helpful note with Google's helpful portal for people dealing with food insecurity.
