Will the Pixel 7a be a winner? Did Samsung “Cheat” with its Space Zoom Moon photos? What’s in store for Australian EV buyers in 2023? Vertical Hold Ep 420

Google’s Pixel 7a has leaked a month early, but is there much there worth getting excited about? Speaking of getting excited, Samsung has been a bit naughty around its Space Zoom feature and how it takes photos of the moon — or has it? Meanwhile, EV sales in Australia continue to grow, but what’s the reality like for EV buyers in Australia?

Special guests AAP’s Jennifer Dudley-Nicholson and Pickr’s Leigh Stark!

A huge show this week, as we dive into the rights and wrongs of Samsung’s AI-assisted moon photography, do a bit of time travel to talk about EVs in Australia and ponder on the success (or failure) of Google’s upcoming Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold phones!

We’re joined this week by AAP’s Jennifer Dudley Nicholson and Pickr’s Leigh Stark!


As well as interviewing Jen at Fully Charged, Alex also caught a little video (and a slideshow of EV action) at the media preview night, which you can watch right here!

And there’s also talk about whether or not people are fussed by cameras in public places or not… and it turns out they’re not. Here’s one of Alex’s walking videos mentioned in the podcast. Note the “completely not fussed” view of basically everyone who walks into shot:
