I don't know how TikTok isn't a Chinese company when my friend was interviewing for a US based Program Manager role and they said they only hire Chinese speakers. They said they just cannot put it in their job descriptions. But that is their policy. That's not even normal in Singapore where business is usually in English except when it's a Chinese owned company.

A lot of these episodes seem to be reaching for a target audience of executives and production leaders and less targeted for consumers and users of the tech being talked about. I'm having a hard time finding relevance of the information and opinions being presented lately. It's almost like I'm listening in on some buddies having an insider discussion and very little of what's being presented is any of my business. Lol

I think the Verge is way biased against samsung watches for some reason. the apple watch looks like a frigging 80's calculator watch. the Samsung galaxy watch pro has amazing battery life and health tracking is great. While performance isn't quite to the same level as the apple watch pro it's also significantly less expensive. The list of ways I disagree with your assessments of the different watches is long but no way is that pixel watch close to looking that much better than the watches that Samsung offers.
