Google’s I/O brought us lots of AI, no Pixel Fold down under and… Time Travel?

Pixel 7a

Well, no, Google didn’t bring us time travel, but in this week’s show, we’re using the power of time travel to tell the story of the Pixel 7a, discuss the Pixel Tablet and more with EFTM’s Dan Tyson and’s Adam Smith!

It’s also budget week, and the tech side of the budget wanted to talk all about the criminals. No, not the ones we may or may not have elected*, but instead criminals of the cyber kind.

So Stilgherrian dropped by the Vertical Hold studios to talk all things Cyber, as well as why the skies over at BlueSky might not be that blue…

*Allegedly, in case you’re a lawyer reading this.
