Despite a plethora of major news from the mobile space this week, we somehow recorded one of our shortest podcasts in recent memory. We kick off with a recap of Google's "breakfast with Sundar Pichai" event, then Brian ponders what life would be like with a Chromecast -- he hasn't owned a TV in about a dozen years. Finally, we chat about Verizon's new Droids, and round out the show with observations from our Nokia Lumia 1020 and Samsung GS4 Mini reviews. Episode 353 of the Engadget podcast is ready to stream below.
