    There's a guy in the floor beneath me that keeps blasting music all day long. Like literally without a pause. One moment it's cancerogenic turbo-folk the other moment it's ex yu rock. Don't know how one person could have such a vast musical taste (note, read turbo-folk as the most disgusting piece of music, the most atrocious of it's kind you can find on the internet).

    Anyway, it really needs to stop, cause the bass is literally causing vibrations and it bothers alot.

    On a happier note and different topic. I got taken out to lunch today. Was nice. The person gave me a nice book too.

    It's been nice to befriend done nice people.

    I also had my exit interview today. I left good feedback. Believe it or not I have the ability to speak without being sarcastic.

    i never knew that was such a thing as a exit interview :P.

    Pixel 2 - First day experience.

    Backstory - I finally DID it. Sold every other phone I had. The only backup device I now have is a Lumia 925! I just reset the Pixel XL that I used for 15 days and packed it to ship it out.

    Mini review will be posted first week in December. Next week is Thanksgiving and following week I am in Minnesota for work.

    Okay, so on with the initial experience.

    Size - Despite being a smidgen taller, this phone feels better ergonomically than the original Pixel. It could be due to the fact that it is slightly thinner and there is no slope from bottom to top on the back cover. Also the case I have is probably the best thin case I have found. I would have liked for them to have stereo speakers and a small chin top and bottom like the Pixel 2 XL though.

    Screen - No issues. For that matter, I didn't have any issues with the OG Pixel screen as well.

    Speakers - they sound great. No issues. As I said before would have liked a smaller bezel (chin) top and bottom like the Pixel 2 XL.

    No headphone jack - biggest gripe. Google's dongle isn't great compared to Apple's and is expensive. Also for some bizarre reason the phone doesn't like my Motorola USB-C dongle. Go figure. I am currently charging my BT headphones and will provide an update about that later. This is probably the biggest disappointment so far.

    OS - Fluid, fluid, fluid. This is is definitely snappier and faster on Oreo compared to the OG Pixel. I would say the experience on this device now closely rivals what folks get on iOS and ifruit devices.

    Camera - no test driving yet.

    Google Assistant using the squeeze function. I can see the benefit of it but so far have mistakenly activated it a couple of times. If it gets annoying then I will turn it off.
    what you said " for some bizarre reason the phone doesn't like my Motorola USB-C dongle." I do hope there is a standard for dongles because, i don't want to worry about if a certain dongle will work with a certain device :/

    Yup. I'm waiting for when he starts having to do other people's work and not get paid for it, having to work more when colleagues call out, when colleagues try to throw him under the bus when **** goes slideways, the first cute girl he works with that he notices more than her watch, etc.

    If he's feeling now, he'll **** a few bricks after those experiences...

    Oh you think so? I'm in the dormitory, think again. Wish I could somehow record the smell so I can show you. The weed is coming to my dorm under the door every other night. Sometimes, when they really smoke hard, it accumulates so much in the hallway that it activates the smoke sensors. You should see them trying to deactivate it while high.
