Engadget Eurocast 065 - 6.27.14

Dan has summoned the team together to deliver some important news, so we have a full house today. With 65 episodes under the belt, the Eurocast is joining the likes of the HD podcast and taking a hiatus. We're restructuring how we deliver news outside the website proper and as they say, "when it's time to change, you've got to rearrange." For now, however, it's time to turn those dewy eyes to Google-y eyes. This week's Google I/O developer conference brought forth a litany of software announcements including a new design language, auto-focused software, the Android Wear platform and support for budget handsets. While Android One is planning to power smartphones for economically minded devices, Google also delivered a corrugated solution to costly VR technology -- you can even make one at home. What does this all mean for you? Our crack team of technology addicts experts dig into the details to make it all crystal clear. Please join us at the streaming links below as we talk tech news one last time and raise our glasses to you, our listeners. Stay tuned, though, you might hear from us again sooner than you think.

Hosts: Dan Cooper, Sharif Sakr, Matt Brian, Steve Dent, James Trew
