#71: Pixels On A Coaster
November 3rd, 2016 · 85 minutes
Yasmine is back after taking her Pixel on Vacation. Andy wishes he was Yasmine's Pixel. Russell tries not to gloat too much over his recent win. A special guest joins us to push his iPhone and Pixel together and make them kiss.
For this special episode we talk mainly Pixel and how it stacks up to the other flagship phones. Was Hiroshi right? Will we look back in 8 years time and see this as a turning point for Android? Only one way to find out, hit that damn play button so hard you break the screen of your worthless non Pixel device and give yourself an excuse to upgrade.
