#339: It's A Wonderful Phone

December 24th, 2021 · 58 minutes

We're taking it easy this week. Andy's honeymoon with the Pixel 6 Pro is nearing its end, and Flo finally got herself a Christmas tree. We'll talk about the PIxel 5a's defeat over the iPhone 13 Pro, why it's not what you think, and why TikTok is beating out Google for traffic. Then we'll get really into the holiday spirit with Google's Santa Village and all the games you can play before diving into the Pixel-themed Tarot deck. Finally, in tribute to our brethren Down Under, we'll end with horror.
