#337: Hawkeye The Pixel Guy

December 10th, 2021 · 78 minutes

Andy indulges in opera while Flo is out on assignment this week. Andy beautifully explains what he enjoyed about Eurydice and Tosca during his trip to the Met and how his Pixel helped him navigate around New York City.

Then, why are 200 newspapers suing Google for harming their advertising business? And have Roku and YouTube finally settled their beef? Andy will also walk you through why Microsoft is behind a bug that breaks an Android device's ability to call emergency services before routing you through the slew of Pixel Watch rumors—yes, that Pixel Watch that keeps getting un-rumored, then re-rumored. Maybe a Pixel Watch will get Hawkeye to upgrade his Pixel 3.
