Daniel Bader, Alex Dobie, and Jerry Hildenbrand talk about the perceived smoke and mirrors behind the demonstration of Google Duplex last week, and the real world implications of the technology. They also take another look at Android P beta, especially the new gestures it supports.
From there, it's a deep dive into OnePlus 6. With flawlessly smooth performance, it offers 90% of the quality of its competitors for 75% of the price.
Finally, President Trump is working to get ZTE back into business. But will the company be held accountable for violating U.S. sanctions?

So... This ISN'T the Armour Class podcast? There are some excellent apps for 5e... Just need to get my group away from bloody 2e.
This reminds me that I need to catch up on The Adventure Zone.
I was only partly paying attention to this segment and all I kept thinking is did they go full nerd?
I play D&D on a regular basis, and I think that's probably less nerdy than the fact that I spend a lot of time commenting on Android news sites.
If the Oneplus 6 is a flagship, will it kill itself?
It's out to kill all the other flagships first, but it's saving the last bullet for itself.
Maybe the demo of the A.I. Duplex should have been included in the magic show. If Google wants to sell to the public that this is what their assistant can do now. That was the perception. Not what it's capable of in the future. Then they should include a disclaimer. To say that it was edited and probably scripted. Then to follow that up by saying the general public is "missing the point" is just outright wrong. It's years away from being able to do that.
