This week had a load of convertibles thrown upon us — and we’re not talking about Corvettes. We intersect Surface Pro and MateBook with Chinese companies winning and flailing and playing some sleight of hand, plus a quick hot take or two on how Android O will save Google from the big “F-word,” all on this week’s show.

Our own Adam Z. Lein joins us for this tailspin, so make sure you’re charged and ready for the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the video recorded from 11:15pm Eastern on May 25th, or check out the high-quality audio version right here. You can shoot your listener emails to [email protected] for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air the following week!
