"Android is everywhere." Everone always says that, but this year at I/O it was demonstrated on stage. They showed it on watches, TVs, cars, phones, tablets, and even PCs. We talk about all of this, plus Android's new design, and why protestors hate Google. It's a Googley good time.

50 EPISODES!!

As Alicia Keys once said: "this phone is on fire!" Okay, maybe those weren't her exact words, but it fits for this week. Amazon has offically announced the Fire Phone, and we're not sure if it's cool or lame. T-Mobile and John "Legend" Legere are shaking up the industry with some new anti-net neutrality features. Samsung totally didn't just unviel the Galaxy S5 Prime. All that, plus much more. Enjoy!
