Daniel Bader, Andrew Martonik, and Russell Holly are here for the penultimate episode of the show for 2018! AT&T has officially launched their 5G network — albeit in portions of only 12 markets. T-Mobile's John Legere has chimed in with plenty of snark, but maybe he should keep his opinion to himself for once.

Facebook continues to rationalize their insidious disregard for user data. They gave unfettered access to Microsoft, Amazon, and Netflix. Meanwhile, Sundar Pichai schooled Congress on exactly what Google does (and does not do) with regard to user data and perceived bias in search results.

Finally, the crew share their favorite gadgets of 2018. Happy Holidays!

Sascha Segan of PC Mag stops by to have an incredibly in-depth conversation with Daniel Bader and Andrew Martonik about Qualcomm's recent Snapdragon Tech Summit, and the various technologies being used by carriers to support 5G connectivity. They talk about 5G in the US as well as the rest of the world. Additionally, they take a look at the ostentatious OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition.

Daniel Bader and Jerry Hildenbrand are joined by Marton Barcza of TechAltar to grade the performance of just about every player in the smartphone market you can think of. It's an evaluation of not only the quality of the devices, but the direction in which the companies are heading and whether or not they are successful in reaching their intended audiences. It's epic and worth every second spent vibrating your ear drum.
