Last year was the first time that I left my iPhone for more than a month and switch to Android. I used the Galaxy S7 for around 5 Months until the iPhone 7 came out. I've always liked Android but until a couple years ago it just wasn't as good as iOS and when I say good I mean the apps available on the OS were not as good as those on iOS.
I believe 2017 is the first year that it doesn't really matter what phone you choose because all of them are going to be pretty much the same. The iPhone 8 will look and function very similarly to the Galaxy S8 and both devices have lots of features which end up accomplishing the same thing. I sold my iPhone 7 a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the Galaxy S8 because it is the best smartphone ever made. The combination of materials, features, software, and design of the phone make it the most comfortable smartphone I have held and it sports the most beautiful screen I have seen. The iPhone 8 will most like match all this but we are still months away from an announcement this means it's currently Samsung's turn to shine.
I ended up purchasing the Silver since I have had a black phone for the past couple of years and Samsung has given all the S8 colors black fronts which is perfect. If you have yet to see one in person, I highly reccomend going to a store and checking it out. This is what phones will look like for the next couple of years until the foldable displays become more affordable. I’ll be making some videos on the S8 this coming weekend so stay tuned for those!
We got our hands on China’s latest iPhone 6s clone/counterfeit. The latest clone is a full on smartphone that is running a heavily skinned version of Android.

The first offficial trailer of the upcoming Steve Jobs movie written by Aaron Sorkin has been released. If you’ve read Walter Isaacson’s book then you’ll definitely notice that the movie is keeping to actual events in Steve Jobs life.
Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.
Steve Jobs is directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle and written by Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin, working from Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple founder. The producers are Mark Gordon, Guymon Casady of Film 360, Scott Rudin and Academy Award winner Christian Colson.
Michael Fassbender plays Steve Jobs, the pioneering founder of Apple, with Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. The film also stars Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.
Google has finally announced it’s own mobile network (Project Fi) that will use Sprint and T-Mobile to provide a constant connection to your mobile device. The service is currently available through invite only and Google’s Nexus 6 is the first phone that is supported by network.
Networks change in quality as you move around. To help you get the highest-quality connection at your location, Project Fi uses new technology to intelligently connect you to the fastest network whether it’s Wi-Fi or one of our partner LTE networks.
If you’re on one network and we detect our other 4G LTE network partner has a stronger signal, you’re moved over to the other network to get the fastest available speed.
The Nexus 6 is the first smartphone to support Project Fi’s network of networks. The Nexus 6 works with our unique SIM that lets you access multiple networks and has a state-of-the-art cellular radio tuned to work with different network types. You can use a Nexus 6 you already own, or buy a new one when you sign up.
Our plan starts with the Fi Basics for $20 per month. This includes:
Unlimited domestic talk and text Unlimited international texts Low-cost international calls Wi-Fi tethering Coverage in 120+ countries
Then it’s $10 per GB for data. $10 for 1GB, $20 for 2GB, $30 for 3GB and so on. That’s it. With no annual contract required.
It’s hard to predict your data usage when it changes month to month. One month you’re streaming live sports, the next you’re mostly just checking email. At the end of each month, you’ll get your unused data credited in dollars and cents, so you only pay for what you use.
If you have a Nexus 6 then you can head over to this link to request an invite.
Apple’s new MacBooks are now available at retail stores nationwide and with that come videos from me showing you Apple’s latest so you can decide if you want spend your money on it. Here is my unboxing of the Gold MacBook:
The new MacBook feels premium yet it is light and portable. For ~$1,400 you can go to an Apple Store and get yourself one. Don’t expect this laptop to be super speedy and handle all of your productivity done but it is able to handle quite a bit! I’ve been able to run Final Cut Pro and Pixelmator with little-to-no problems.
The Gold MacBook is stunning in its own way. This color basically says “I have the new MacBook and it’s Gold”. You’ll probably get a lot of people looking at your new MacBook if you opt for gold but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
