What a week. What. A. Week. Right? Google took over on Wednesday with its huge hardware event, which meant that everything else, even if it would normally have been a big deal, got pushed to the side. Google gave us new Pixel 2 phones, a Pixelbook, Google Home Mini and Max, Pixel Buds, a weird GIF camera, and probably something else (new Daydream View) that I can’t remember because there was so much.
We happened to be at the event and went hands-on with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. You’ll find that video below. I’d also highly recommend you checkout this week’s DL Show that dives into everything Google announced and then some. It’s our immediate thoughts after being on hand for the festivities.
Finally, if you are all caught up on the Google stuff, then dive into the bottom half of the list below where you’ll find news out of Verizon prepaid, the LG V30 launching, and Netflix prices once again on the rise.
What a week. Highlights below.
