Sorry folks, no budget Pixel 2 is coming this year

In January the first information related to the upcoming Pixel 2 surfaced online.

A few thoughts on Apple Watch from folks who have actually used smartwatches

Mind your clocks and today, folks

A quick reminder that while the U.S. switched over to Daylight Saving Time a few weeks ago, much of the rest of the world makes the change today. And while our Android phones usually handle the transition with ease, it’s still possible to see issues.
