Well, there has been a strange and surprising amount of news in the past week. Or hell, the past day. The past hour? It's going to be impossible to talk about all of it, but Nilay Patel, Chris Plante, and Dieter Bohn will talk about the best of it. And maybe Sam Sheffer will talk about the bust of it (that's a Snapchat joke, if you're wondering, based on our ongoing series called Beef or Bust, which you should watch by following "therealverge").

Anyway, we'll start at 4:30 Eastern; other time zones can be calculated via the magic of the internet. You could probably use Amazon Echo to figure it out. Or Google Now on a Nexus 9. Or Siri on an iPad Air 2. Or Cortana on Windows Phone. Basically, in the future, you can't escape finding out when the Vergecast starts. Sorry about that.
