Strap in, folks. This week is gonna be fun. Perhaps most exciting is that Android Auto has been released — and we're taking it for a test drive! If you've got questions, we'll have some answers.

Plus, Peter Chou is out as HTC's CEO — we'll talk about what that means as we get ready for the release of the HTC One M9. And, yes, we'll talk a tad about the damned Snapdragon 810. Is it hype? Or overheating? 

Plus, more on the Galaxy S6, and we answer more of your questions live!

Also: Enter our Huawei Friendly User Testing Contest at androidcentral.com/huawei.

It's Friday the 13th, which for some folks is a day of doom and gloom. But we have so many days like that we figured with turn things on their head and break down the latest with the release of Android 5.1 Lollipop, rap a bit about the new devices we've still got coming our way, Russell nerds out on some 3D printing — and, yes, we'll devote precisely 270 seconds to the damned Apple Watch.

OK, maybe a little more than that. Enjoy!

We're back from Mobile World Congress! So let's talk more about Mobile World Congress! Specifically we'll get takes on the Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, the HTC Vive virtual reality stuff, and tons more — from the guys back and home who weren't bogged down in the mix. This should be a fun perspective!

Android Auto and Apple's CarPlay are going to be game-changers for many of us. But that doesn't mean we don't still have questions. So we brought in analyst (and engineer and former PR rep for a major manufacturer) Sam Abuelsamid for a fascinating discussion about what's going to change for us in the cockpit. Of our 2005 Honda Civic.

You can find more on the auto industry from Sam at Navigant Research, on Google+ and at his personal blog.

And in the second part of this two-parter, Phil has some hard questions for iMore.com's Rene Ritchie as the Apple Watch gets closer to its debut, and epsecially as we've started to get more and better looking options from Android Wear.

We're back with our last live recording before we head off to Mobile World Congress. On tap: We'll see if this Lenovo "Superfish" means anything for us on Android. We'll get Alex's initial thoughts on the LG G Flex 2. And we'll definitely preview what to expect from MWC in just one more short week.

And someone sings some Chris Isaak.
