You watched the live show at CES and now we’re back in podcast mode. Nilay, Dieter, and Paul get together to share some of their experiences from the Consumer Electronics Show, along with a review of what happened this week. The iPhone turned 10 on Tuesday, so the trio looks back to when it was first announced and discuss what will happen with smartphones in the future.

There’s also lots of gadget talk: HTC’s U Ultra, the Nintendo Switch (!), and lots of throwback devices.

This is a really good nerdy tech-centric episode of Vergecast, I hope you like it.

19:03 - iPhone prototypes

22:38 - Macbook Pro battery life
