#319: Fees, Fines, Fo, Fum

August 6th, 2021 · 62 minutes

Flo's finally figured out her computer situation (it's not a Chromebook), and Andy runs out of money to burn. The Pixel 6 got announced this week, but we still only know so little. We run through the numbers of Alphabet's earnings call and where all their money goes, then talk about the new Nest security devices coming through. We also wax poetic on Google's "Switch to Android" app for iPhone users.
