Wow, so my last update on this blog was around a year and a half ago. I'm not gonna beat myself up about it because life happens... but I wish I would have made more of an effort. Running a site like this or even a YouTube channel can be a lot of work, especially with the goals and aspirations that I have for it and myself. It's like a job where you give maximum effort for little to no pay. That said, I still wanted to make it work even if it could only be a part-time thing and I still do.Read More
Hey guys, so if you look back over the site and/or have seen my most recent YouTube video... you may be aware that I started a new job last month. A huge part of the reason why I was posting so frequently on here last month prior to starting the job was because I had a feeling I wouldn't be able to dedicate as much time to the site once I was working again. I hate to admit it but I was right in feeling that way and almost went the entire month without making any posts on here at all. I definitely don't want to get back into the habit of being insanely active on here and then disappearing again so I wanted to make a quick post about whats been going on with me.Read More
Nearly two weeks ago Google hosted a Made by Google event which was streamed live over YouTube. Like many others I sat in anticipation on October 4th to hear about all the new things that were to come. They covered a variety of products from the new 4K Chromecast to the Daydream View (their VR headset with a remote control). However, the main thing I was concerned with was their new line of phones... the Pixel and Pixel XL.
For years I drooled over many of the Nexus devices and finally got on board in 2014 with the Nexus 6. I genuinely loved that phone with only one major gripe relating to the size; my dainty hands struggled to hold it ( particularly with one hand) which led to me ultimately gifting it to my dad last Christmas. I could have gotten a 5X but decided to branch out and try my very first iPhone instead. One thing I can say about the Nexus experience though is that I absolutely loved getting software updates as soon as they were released or using developer previews until they were. That feeling of always being up to date is what made me never want another Android device unless it was a Nexus or straight from Google. Its also the reason that I felt like I was finally ready to give the iPhone a chance because I adore getting updates; even now I'm in Apple's beta program.Read More
