October 13th, 2016 · 65 minutes

The whole of Australia is yet again angry with Russell. Andy tries to deflect them with Koala Facts. Yasmine thinks Russell should go down for his crimes. The Material team hold an intervention with a Galaxy Note 7 user.

This week we pour one out for the Note 7, a phone who's star just burnt too bright. The modern day Icarus, whose goals were too lofty, whose flight just too high. We'll miss thee oh noble phone.

Also Android 7.1, Google Chrome and Project Fi!
