about this episode

Google had two big product launches this week: an upgraded Nexus 7, with a mega high resolution screen. And the instantly popular, $35 HDMI dongle they call Chromecast, which turns your tablet, laptop, or smartphone into a remote to project videos, photos, and more onto your TV. What will the next iPhone look like, and how effective will iOS7 be? From Kite to combat mosquitos, Tile to find your keys, or BarEye to order drinks from your phone, the panel votes on the launch of the week. Ryan Block, VP of Product for AOL, and Slate tech columnist Farhad Manjoo join us in a special roundtable from WeWork Golden Gate in San Francisco. Plus, from electric supercharger stations, to scanned mail, to groceries delivered to your doorstep, Jason, Ryan, and Farhad share their favorite services of the moment.
