On this week’s episode of The Gigaom Show, we dive into the big Google-Motorola-Lenovo news, which ends a curious chapter in the history of Google and Android. We brought in Janko Roettgers to defend his point that the standalone social TV app is dead, stickers or no stickers. And we catch up with Stacey Higginbotham’s venture into the captivating but weird world that is Washington, D.C., where policy makers are both more earnest and more clueless when it comes to technology than you’d think.
