  • Jason took a trip to Nomadic, a startup in San Rafael and went on a VR adventure that blends the real world with the virtual one. 
  • In Call for Help, we'll see if there is an answer to the Pixel 2 XL burn-in problem. 
  • The holidays are coming, so why not start early? Jason kick-offs our Holiday Gift Guide with his picks for Android smartphones. One phone is a real stocking stuffer
