This week on The Vergecast, Nilay, Paul, and Dieter run through a few things in the tech world that happened this week, like reviews for Google’s Pixel Buds and Microsoft’s Surface Book 2, and the announcement of the OnePlus 5T.
Also, Lauren Goode stops by the show to talk about season 2 of her video series Next Level, which takes a closer look at technology’s impact on the human experience. This week’s episode featured DJI’s Aeroscope technology that can track rogue drones.
