Trending: Microsoft’s 2019 acquisition spree: 20 deals totaling $9.1B, led by blockbuster GitHub buy

It was a busy week in gadget news. The Nintendo Switch scored an early win as the best console launch in the company’s history, Pandora announced a premium music streaming service, and McDonalds, of all places, announced a new high-tech ordering system.

Catch up on all the news with this week’s episode of GearedUp, with hosts Andru Edwards of GearLive and GeekWire’s Todd Bishop. We’ll also take a look at the predictions for the next generation of iPads, rumored to be coming this spring.

Andru and Todd also swap anecdotes of ride-hailing experiences, some better than others. Plus, get a look at Andru’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Amiibo collection. These Switch accessories give players boosts in the game, and they’re pretty cute to boot.

Listen to the podcast above or download it as an MP3, and be sure to watch the behind the scenes video at the top of the post to get a look at the Amiibo.
