Vergecast: Roku CEO Anthony Wood, MacBook Pro benchmarks, and Google gets finedJuly 20, 2018
We’ve got a super stuffed episode of The Vergecast this week.
First, the biggest news in tech right now is the European Commission’s ruling that Google has been unfairly using Android to push Google search on users, giving it an unfair advantage. Nilay, Dieter, and Paul sit down and discuss the implications.
In the second half of the show, Dieter discusses some of the new MacBook Pro benchmarks that claim the processors may throttle performance due to cooling issues.
Nilay got an exclusive interview with Roku CEO Anthony Wood, so we’ve included that in this episode as well.
Also, our culture coverage continues this week with another roundup by Megan Farokhmanesh and Bijan Stephen.
There’s even a whole lot more in between that — like Paul’s newly sponsored segment “Fold the phone” — so listen to it all, and you’ll get it all.
