    Phone interview with Alphabet company is set for next Wednesday. Apparently the recruiter sent my application in because I got an acknowledgement from Google saying, thank you for applying. Their systems are not fully integrated yet. You apply to an Alphabet company but the email comes from Google, lol!

    The more i see of the key one, the more it impresses. I won't buy one because I'm set with the Mi note 2, but man, as a communicator, I'd use it for sure.

    As much as I enjoy watching phone reviews, it is a subjective bit of things that sometimes annoys me. Unfortunately, we live in world where intelligent differences in opinions don't exist anymore and people get roasted for simply being different.

    I'm curious what you mean by being different.

    I think it's time for me to do a massive clean out soon. I don't want to move with all of these things that I really don't need or even wear.

    There are people who are, for example, reviewing the Key One out of "context". I don't mind that, but if you're going to do so, you've got to make better arguments than I've seen made.

    I like differences in opinions, but I just feel we have lost our way when people can present differences in respectable ways. Especially online, click bait rules.

    Ohh, I get what you're saying. I think you have a great point here.

    On second thought, I'm going to explore the option of getting the Pixel fixed via uBreakiFix. I'll have to do a day when I leave work early to go down and get it fixed or mail it in. I think I would rather do the latter since it isn't close.

    If it's all good, I will be keeping the Pixel. Hopefully it isn't really expensive to fix.

    Good call.
    Thank you! On the phone, they said that they can fix it.

    Now getting someone to go with me will be a pain in the butt. Maybe some bribery will work lol.

    So while I'm procrastinating slightly, a few odds and ends thoughts:

    1) I like the SBH-70. Battery life is too short, sound is OK (the iPhone earbuds silicone eartips slightly improved comfort), and they are really lightweight and no issues to wear. I sort of wish they were in-car.

    2) I do miss my wired headphones though...but it is what it is. I did a call recently and use my wired headphones and the muting issue showed up. So I know when calls come in I have to use workarounds with that.

    3) Otherwise, no complaints with the Mi Note 2. Battery life is good and as long as I pay attention to the set up in low light, pictures are solid enough for me.

    4) The 360 42mm is a very good daily driver. I hope to God that 2.0 doesn't screw up the watch. I haven't turned in my Huawei watch to update it yet and I'm in no rush to do so.
