Samsung’s recall of the Note7 just keeps getting worse and Jon, Jason, and Gordon are here to help you make sense of it. On tap:

  • Jason gives us the latest on just how bad the Note7 recall is and what may have gone wrong.
  • Is Google about to announce new Pixel phones and drop its beloved Nexus line? Does anyone even care?
  • Researchers demo a hack for Tesla cars that lets them remotely apply the brakes and pop the trunk.
  • And in this week’s Right or Wrong: Did the Samsung Note7 just become the new Ford Pinto?
