    "Hey Google" was actually around in the beginning for the Nexus 5, but they got rid of it after a short while. I'm glad they're bringing it back, it was always my go to way to say it..

    You failed then. It didn't set off my Pixel XL. Guess our voices don't sound alike.

    "okay Google" doesn't work if youre using the device to watch a video or have headphones on. When will people learn this. Everytime someone does it, it's never worked for me. It only works for my voice 😂

    Thank You! Thank You! For your position on the headphone jack. There have been some good articles on what the loss of the jack means, like Nilay Patel's article on The Verge. What this is doing is creating more walled gardens and pushing consumers to choose ecosystems for a peripheral that has been around forever and is the very definition of a stable standard. There is no one USB C audio standard and both Apple and Google are putting proprietary overlays on Bluetooth.

    For all you, "so just use bluetooth" fanboys, please, please show me one set of bluetooth headphones that have the audio quality of the 1MORE Triple Driver Earbuds for anywhere near the $98.00 price. And funny thing, my earbuds have never, not once quit on me because the battery died. Imagine that. Of course this means those of us with wired phones won't need to buy new ones every couple of years as the bluetooth batteries start to fail. …Hmmm smelling more consumer ripoffs here.

    Let's also talk about listening to your phone while it is charging. My car doesn't have bluetooth, I use audio jack to Aux to listen to music or Audible books. How am I supposed to use the USB C port to send audio out and charge my phone on road trips…Hmmm? And Google's decision is even worse than Apple's. At least with the new iPhones you can wirelessly charge and still use the lightning port. Since Google decided to leave out that flagship phone feature, charging and listening with wired phones is much more problematic.

    I think the most important Google story of the week is Android lacking basic security and being easier to hack using KrackAttack

    Washed out colors and blue tint on a 850/950 dollar phone in 2017 just does not cut it. Yes i know they say "it's because it's color accurate" but then it should accurately display vibrant colors too right? The two are mutually exclusive and using one as an excuse for the lack of the other is disingenuous.
