It's our 75th episode, but there's no time to stop and celebrate. Google's big I/O conference is imminent, and with it are plenty of rumours of shiny new Nexus devices, VR gear and self driving cars, not to mention the next version of Android. We're pretty sure we've sorted out what Android N will be called, but what other surprises will Google pull out of its shiny Google Hat?

Meanwhile, Optus is patting itself on the back for rolling out VoLTE (something Telstra and Vodafone both did last year), but what is VoLTE, and why should you care?

Finally, Microsoft's announced pricing for Windows 10 once its window (pun not intended) of free upgrades ends, but is it a price you'll be willing to pay?

All this and more in the latest episode of Vertical Hold, where we channel-surf through the headlines in search of the big picture.

Has Optus scored an own goal with its English Premier League deal? Are Aussies entitled to pirate Game of Thrones? Can Kogan breath new life into Dick Smith?

All this and more in the latest episode of Vertical Hold, where we channel-surf through the headlines in search of the big picture. Special guest APN News Editor and Arsenal fan Patrick Avenell.
