Vergecast episode 241! This week, Nilay and Dieter bring back Ross Miller and Megan Farokhmanesh to assist covering the news from this week. Snap Inc. filed for a $3 billion IPO, Apple is reportedly putting ARM chips in Macs, and Facebook is making a TV app. In between all that listen to Nilay’s take on fire logs, Dieter’s experience with a Zelda-themed escape room, and the wackiness of internet culture from Megan and Ross.
Nilay and Dieter apologized for this episode to me personally — but really, we covered a lot and had a good time so I think they’re just being hard on themselves. Enjoy!
