Pixelbook, Nintendo Switch, and electric cars in space (MobileTechRoundup show #422)

A phone was returned while a new Chromebook and game console were purchased over the last week. There is still a lot going on as we prepare for MWC in a couple weeks.

This week on MobileTechRoundup show #422 you will hear Kevin and I describe purchases where we each bought something the other has talked about actively on the show.
