Daniel Bader and Andrew Martonik are joined this week by Android Police managing editor David Ruddock! They discuss Amazon's acquisition of mesh Wi-Fi company, Eero, and why David thinks 5G might be the death of some smartphone companies.

They also look at Samsung's 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S5e and rumors about several new Galaxy wearables. There are also rumors about Pixel Watch from Google and some not-so-great realities when it comes to the current state of Wear OS.

Rounding things out, the crew discuss the harm caused by clickbait tech sites that publish bad/fake rumors alongside "aggregated" articles from legitimate sources.
