Vergecast: OnePlus 9 review and this year’s first major tech hearing


Every Friday, The edge publishes our flagship podcast, The Vergecast, where we cover the week in tech news with the reporters and editors covering the biggest stories.

This week, co-hosts Nilay Patel and Dieter Bohn are coming in Verge reporter Allison Johnson to talk about her review of the One Plus 9 and how the phone compares to the company’s 9 Pro model and other Android flagship phones on the market.

The second half of the show is devoted to Congress’ first major technical hearing in 2021 with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Google CEO Sundar Pichai. Political reporter Makena Kelly stops by while the hearing is underway to comment on the effectiveness of these types of procedures to bring about new technical regulations, the live Twitter trolling being carried out by Dorsey herself, and Zuckerberg’s thoughts on Section 230 reform.

There’s a lot more in between – like Intel’s big changes with its new CEO, an augmented audio reality startup taking on theme parks, and a class action status for the butterfly keyboard pack against Apple – so listen here or in your preferred podcast player for the full discussion. .
