It's barbecue time in the UK, the sun is shining (for the moment) and things are right in the world. Unless, of course, you happen to be Nintendo. The crew looks at the state of Nintendo's financials and recent missteps in handling certain interactions of its Mii-based Tomodachi LIfe characters. While things keep getting complicated for Mario's makers, easyJet looks towards streamlining its engineers' workflow by employing drones to help speed up the fleet inspection process. China's Huawei is also launching its new Ascend P7, and aside from the bumpy Android ride, it looks to be headed in the right direction for such a nascent smartphone maker. So get some ribs on the grill and let 'em smoke, while we deliver up some tasty tech tidbits to chew on. Join us at the streaming links below for this edition of the Engadget Eurocast!
