Opinion: Netflix needs an ad-supported plan

I know what you’re thinking, Netflix with ads? No way!

If you’re like me, one of the main reasons you subscribe to Netflix, besides the brilliant originals, is the fact that there are no ads.

With the demise of the Droid line at Verizon, Android phones simply aren’t available in the eyes of security teams outside of Samsung. That’s a problem for Google, but one that the new Pixel 3a might solve.

Opinion: Motorola needs a true flagship

For those that haven’t followed me for some time, I’m a pretty big Motorola fan. I’ve supported the brand for over two decades now. Maybe that makes me an old fart, but it’s true. If you were to make a graph of all the devices I’ve owned in the mobile space, Moto would have drastically taller bar than the rest.
