Show date: August 28 2016

Hosts: Vinayak Nair, Vikram Mohan

Broken News:

Google releases Android 7.0 Nougat – But where are the Nexus phones?

WhatApp wants to share your phone number with Facebook. And you really don’t have a choice.

Reliance continues to ‘unofficially’ roll out Jio network


Your choices for making your ‘dumb TV’ smart include:

  • Android TV / ChromeCast
  • Apple TV
  • Roku
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • XBOX or PlayStation

Vikram recommends NVidia Shield Android TV. But get it from the US if you can. Too expensive in India.

Vinayak (once again) makes an excellent case for buying a Chromecast
