This week’s News Roundup episode focused on three news stories. We kicked things off with a discussion of Nest’s biggest set of announcements in recent memories and what it means for the smart home market. Next, we discussed the various reviews that came out for Apple’s new products this week. And lastly, we talked through Google’s investment in / acquisition of part of HTC’s smartphone business.
As always, you’ll find links to these stories and other things we discussed underneath the SoundCloud player embedded below.
