    Debating the iPhone 14 eSIM situation (Nick Gray, Phandroid)

    Debating the iPhone 14 eSIM situation (Nick Gray, Phandroid)

    Happy iPhone season! Well, maybe it is, maybe it isn't -- if JV has any say about it, the new iPhone 14 lineup is fine from most standpoints, but a whole new paradigm is starting with the introduction of fully eSIM units in the US. JV and Nick debate the pros and cons of this change before getting into the general announcements, followed by a pretty quick synopsis of IFA, which Nick did actually attend.

    Thoughts on the Sony Xperia 5 IV from the #SonyKandoTrip (Booredatwork, TheUnlockr)

    Thoughts on the Sony Xperia 5 IV from the #SonyKandoTrip (Booredatwork, TheUnlockr)

    And we're back! Thank you so much for your patience as I, JV, get back in the saddle to host the Pocketnow Weekly Podcast. I never closed the door on hosting this long running show, but I did find that I had to take care of my own stuff, personal and professional, as I juggled so many different projects at any given time. I want to give thanks to the Pocketnow team for always being understanding and patient with me, not to mention them giving me the space to do everything I do in whatever manner that keeps me healthy in body and spirit.

    That being said, I had a great opportunity to bring back the podcast because some of our friends were together with me on a wonderful trip -- the Sony Kando Trip. Made primarily as a way for photographer and Sony Alpha camera enthusiasts and influencers to get together, the small core group of tech friends were also in attendance and I got two of them -- Thunder E of Booredatwork and David Cogen, TheUnlockr -- to join me as we talked about the entire lovely week and the Sony Xperia 5 IV.

    Look forward to future episodes and I'll do my best to bring them out on a consistent basis -- but do bear with me as I get my feet wet again as the host of the Pocketnow Weekly Podcast!

    Sony Xperia 1 IV or Pixel 7 Pro? (Nick Gray, Phandroid)

    Sony Xperia 1 IV or Pixel 7 Pro? (Nick Gray, Phandroid)

    Google I/O has come and gone, but there were so many great announcements made that JV and Nick Gray have to make a chunky episode talking about everything that they were excited about. Google wasn't the only one that had a great week though -- Sony with their Xperia 1 IV and the WH1000xM5 headphones made quite the splash too, and the two talk through them before the I/O craziness.

    Google I/O hype! (Nick Gray, Phandroid)

    Google I/O hype! (Nick Gray, Phandroid)

    Google I/O is on the horizon, and there are a few hardware announcements that JV and Nick are really excited for: the Pixel 6a, Pixel Watch, and Pixel Buds Pro. Of course, that doesn't mean we're really going to be seeing them in a few days, but it's still fun to speculate! Before that though, JV wanted to just put forth a bit of appreciation for pieces of tech that have gotten smaller, more powerful, and more efficient. Also, Amazon Fresh.

    Betas all around: Nothing Launcher and Android 13! (Nick Gray, Phandroid)

    Betas all around: Nothing Launcher and Android 13! (Nick Gray, Phandroid)

    JV and Nick Gray get through a few main stories from this past week, including the release of a couple of software betas: the Nothing Launcher and Android 13 ahead of Google I/O! After that, JV wonders why we even need the Snap Pixy selfie drone, even if he admits that he will get one to try out regardless.

    The OnePlus 10 Pro and the curse of "same"-ity (Nick Gray, Phandroid)

    The OnePlus 10 Pro and the curse of "same"-ity (Nick Gray, Phandroid)

    Nick is back on the show -- well, you might have expected that, but he was actually down with COVID over the last week. Nick Gray of Phandroid recounts his experience of being locked up with all of his tech while JV expresses all the gratitude he can that everyone is okay. After that, the two talk through the OnePlus 10 Pro and why it's so hard to wrap their heads around.
