Questions about Facebook’s oversight board, Quibi’s popularity, and the Pixel 4A
On this episode of The Vergecast, hosts Nilay Patel and Dieter Bohn welcome on a few of our colleagues to discuss the week’s important stories.
First up, deputy editor Dan Seifert stops by to cover our recent 13-inch MacBook Pro review, what is going on with the next Pixel phone, and why Windows’ laptop design has gotten so good.
In the second half of the show, Silicon Valley editor Casey Newton joins to discuss the implementation of Facebook’s independent oversight board that’s dealing with censorship and free speech on the platform and how it can establish a precedent for other social networks.
Last but not least, Verge reporter Julia Alexander is back to update us on how the streaming wars have been handling the world staying at home, how well Quibi is doing after launching last month, and whether WarnerMedia’s upcoming streaming service, HBO Max, can be successful in a very crowded field.
