Android Central Podcast (technology)
The Android Central Podcast, brought to you by AndroidCentral.com.

This week, Andrew, Russell and Daniel talk about the biggest announcement of the week — of the month! — Android Wear 2.0 and the new LG Watch Sport and Watch Style.

Android Wear 2.0 is a pretty massive update for the nascent wearable platform, but is it good enough to convince people to take the smartwatch plunge? And why is the LG Watch Style so lacking in actual features? And have you seen my keys?

This week, Jerry, Daniel, Andrew and special guest Phil Nickinson (aka Modern Dad) start talking about the Google Pixel and end up arguing about BlackBerry. Is this 2011 all over again?

With the Pixel getting an update to Android 7.1.2, it seems that Google is ending updates for the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, two devices released back in 2014. 

And we learn what Phil's been up to since leaving AC to start his own thing.

This week, Daniel, Flo and Jerry talk about the biggest upcoming launches of the year: the Galaxy S8, the LG G6. Can LG get a leg up in 2017 by releasing its phone a month before Samsung?

And we now know that Google I/O will be returning to Mountain View's Shoreline Amphitheater, but did you know that was where the Grateful Dead got its start?

Oh, and Jerry tells a story about an electric condom that you just can't miss. Trust us.

Andrew, Alex, and Daniel dive headfirst into the fiery depths of the Note 7 cancellation.

How much did Samsung know before the phone was widely released, and why didn't the company catch what was causing the first batch of phones to overheat before sending replacements? And, ultimately, how will this affect the way people look at Samsung as a company, and its future products?
