Editor’s Note: Since neither of us were able to edit the show thanks to extenuating conditions, we had some help this week comes from Brittany Gervais. The sound in this show is a little more “raw” as compared to previous shows, but it’s thanks to her that we have a podcast in your feed this week!

Apologies in advance for that, but we hope you enjoy the show!

We’re getting confirmations on new OnePlus hardware. More rumors are popping up on Galaxy S8 hardware. We reveal that mystery Windows phone from last week, and a Canadian dating app saw a huge influx of new users, for no reason…

Watch the live video broadcast from 4:00pm Eastern on November 10th (click here for your local time), or check out the high-quality audio version right here.

For folks watching live, you can comment and ask questions by using the #PNWeekly hashtag on Twitter during the broadcast. For folks watching later, you can shoot your listener emails to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air the following week!
