The OnePlus 3T has been in house for a good week or so now and it’s bringing back very similar vibes to the OnePlus 3, which makes sense since they are both so similar. Those are good vibes, by the way, as the original OnePlus 3 was already one of our favorite phones of the year. So what’s with the OnePlus 3T? Should you be mad about it’s existence so soon or excited that a company was able to improve a phone this quickly? Maybe a bit of both, but I’d lean towards the latter. Let’s talk about those ideas in this OnePlus 3T review. (more…)
Last week, word snuck out suggesting that Pebble was joining Fitbit for around $40 million.

For anyone who uses Simple as their bank, I have a theory for you and it all leads to very good things. According to emails being sent out to users, Simple is finally making the switch over to BBVA Compass, whom they actually joined back in 2014. Due to this change, Simple is requiring its users to switch accounts to BBVA Compass, as the online banking company will no longer use Bankcorp Bank accounts.
Now, while this sucks in terms of having to update your debit card numbers for monthly subscriptions and any bills you have set to auto-pay (Simple is sending everyone new debit cards), the implications of utilizing Compass BBVA over Bankcorp Bank are quite exciting. (more…)
Here’s a simple Yes or No question for you. Does your smartphone need a headphone jack? With news surfacing that Samsung may soon be ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of USB Type-C and all that courage bullsh*t, it’s time we discover just how important the headphone jack is.
For me personally, I use the headphone jack on my phone daily, so long as the phone I’m currently using features one. I have used the LeEco Pro 3 and Moto Z, so I’m used to having to go the Bluetooth and adapter route, but it isn’t all that great. Given this experience, I’m leaning towards “Yes” for headphone jacks.
What do you think? Yay or nay for the headphone jack?
