Vergecast: Snapchat Pixy, Elon Musk buys Twitter, Studio Display update

Every Friday, The edge publishes our flagship podcast, The Vergecastwhere Rim editor-in-chief Nilay Patel and editor-in-chief David Pierce discuss the week in technical news with journalists and editors covering the biggest stories.

In today’s section, David, Nilay and Rim Deputy Editor Liz Lopatto discusses the implications of Twitter accepting Elon Musk’s takeover bid and talks about what they think his plans will be for the social network. They also discuss what to do with all the rumors flying around that the deal will not go through at all, even though Musk is making plans for the company’s future under his leadership.

In the second half of the show, Rim senior editor Alex Heath joins in giving us all the details about Pixy, Snap’s new flying camera. The crew is also discussing whether a beta fix for the lousy webcam on Apple’s new Studio Display justifies an update to our review and Nilay’s conversation with Ford CEO Jim Farley.

There’s a lot more wrapped up in the show – you can listen to the entire discussion here or through your favorite podcast player.
