Share Your Favourite Vergecast Clips :-)


As one of The Vergecasts biggest fans, I sometimes relisten to old episodes to see how time has passed. Its fun to dive back into the 2011 "This Is My Next" days before The Verge launched, and even "The Engadget Show" while it was hosted by Josh, Paul and Nilay.

Episodes 234 and 234 of "The Engadget Show" covered the Galaxy S II being revealed, the Xperia Play, the $799 Motorola Xoom "iPad Killer", Nokia selling its soul to Microsoft, the Sony "folded over" and "clamshell" tablets, MeeGo, the Atrix, iPad 2 being revealed and the official death of the Zune. What an exciting time, of bold innovation and tragedy!

And with that I give you three of my favourite clips featuring the current Verge crew, from their last two episodes working for Engadget. You'll glance back through the years with perfect 20/20 hindsight as Josh, Paul and Nilay say some baffling things. I hope you will enjoy these clips, and share links to your own favourite Vergecast moments :-)
