    I think the world could use a little boredom, at least for a good century or two... so long as we progressed though...

    However, going by the state of things, we'd only deteriorate and go retrograde. De-evolve... :P

    Well if what they are doing in UK is a template then I know what type of millions of jobs DT is going to create.

    Fruit pickers and brick layers (to build that Wall)!

    Easy become a real estate developer. The trick is everyone who agrees to lay bricks to help build the wall will be called a real estate developer under the new IRS guidelines when DT is in the Oval Office ergo you get to dodge paying taxes from then onwards...

    Pricey and a bit ugly to boot.

    Look wise is take the Sony XZ over it any day.

    However it appears the camera is pretty decent on the Pixel.

    I'm still at a loss what to get so far....

    I can wait though.

    So, the Nexus line is dead.

    The Nexus One is still my all time favorite. I was tempted to suck it up and get a 6P, but I'm guessing that Google will most likely keep the Nexus line bare bones and not port over any of the Pixel dust in terms of their software enhancements. It's a pity as I wished that we could still get a Nexus phone as a reference device, but perhaps that's no longer necessary...

    All I'd want at this point is a V20. I'm a very, very long way from being able to get one, so Robin will have to do. I could try to swing for a HTC 10, Honor 8 or G5, but at this point, I'm sticking with Robin.

    People are knocking Google for the price of the Pixels. Well, they've done this sort of pricing before with the Nexus 6 and the Nexus One. I know that this is different, so the price doesn't matter to me (especially since I'm not buying it). Google is making a big push to take a more OEM style stance. So I guess you get what you pay for now...

    Pretty interesting that as soon as the Pixels were launched, the 5X and 6P were immediately discontinued. I did like the 6P and would be interested in it if I liked the larger devices as I once did. Good build, nice speakers, solid battery life and good camera. A fine way to end the Nexus line indeed...

    Meanwhile in Windows land, 950s are few and fast between...same as the Band 2. It is pretty interesting to see the transformation of MSFT to their enterprise focus. I did enjoy the 950 XL, so it is sad to see them go.

    I mean, lots of good phone are getting killed off due to ultra competitive sales. I'm glad on the one hand that the competition is better as we have more quality equipment to choose from...but in the other hand, it makes picking a handset more challenging since there is a shift on focusing on better software support. It just means that there's a sense of sticking with the known quantities like Samsung and Apple.

    It's a shame, really...

    I still wish that some of the older hardware would get better support. I know I REALLY enjoy my Z3 Tablet Compact, but devices like these could benefit from better software support. It's sad that OEMs are in a position where moving physical units is where the money is at...i think they'd be better served (especially smaller companies) to stick to the two year cycle of support.

    So I was reading something where Huawei was still having trouble with the US market. I started to laugh because the implication was that Huawei wanted their devices on Verizon but since Google didn't secure the 6P last year for the US carriers, Huawei decided not to be the ODM for the Pixel line this year. In doing so, they missed out getting a device on Verizon.

    People in the US are fickle. Even Samsung took a few years to get their brand as strong as it is now. As much as this has been written, the hardware has been getting very good by these Chinese OEMs...the software was the hurdle. Still, it was nice to see Honor having a stand in Best Buy and seeing those annoying banned ads online. It was also nice to see ZTE have a stand in Best Buy too. Always nice to try the phones in person before buying them...

    Case in point with the software: Xiaomi. MIUI was forgettable in its origins, but it was still a pretty capable skin. Now, the difference between MIUI 7 and 8 are serious. Truth be told, Google's material design language is a lot more visible to more people than people recognize (in my opinion). So when Xiaomi took a more material design look to MIUI 8, it gave it a more cleaner and more palatable look. For me, EMUI 4.1 and MIUI 7 were in the same vein. MIUI 8 is miles better than EMUI 4.1. So it remains to be seen how well Huawei can modernize the look in EMUI 5. At the end of the day, people want whats familiar to them. As much as some knock TouchWiz, Samsung has cleaned it up to a point where while still feature packed, it is has this "it just works" type feel to it...
