With a classic cast of Nilay Patel, Dieter Bohn, Paul Miller, and Lauren Goode, we have a very nerdy episode of Vergecast this week. For starters, there’s the news about SoftBank buying chip maker ARM, then the Electric Frontier Foundation filing a lawsuit that takes on anti-circumvention rules. The gang also goes deep into nostalgia with classic consumer electronics.
But we couldn’t leave it at that. Paul interviews our own senior reporter Bryan Bishop, who calls in live from San Diego Comic-Con to tell us what he’s seen so far at the convention. To top it all off, we go into the nerdiest part of the celebrity feud between Kayne West and Taylor Swift, which leads to the cast going through their own note-taking apps.
