I just looked up Continuum, that is fancy.

It's a neat idea, but not something I would use at home. Maybe some works would?

Mobile technology has a long way to go before that's a realistic scenario, in my opinion. Although with the trend of moving most Enterprise applications to the web, it may be here sooner than we think.

I've always marveled at the thought of being able to use one device in all form factors. Maybe it will happen in our lifetime...

I looked into the Verizon plan since Ben texted me and said it is saving his company money to switch to unlimited. Not even close for me. It would double the cost of my data, plus I am paying for 8gb but getting nearly 20gb every month.
8gb plan
+2gb free for my phone for life
+2gb free for Jocelyn's phone for life
+7gb of roll over data

I think we are sitting pretty good for what we pay.

My brother has been texting me about getting a new phone. I told him to wait a week for when the Samsung S8 is announced on the 28th. Basically everything about the phone has already been leaked. I know LG is coming out with a new one (or did it already)?

Will anyone be picking up either of these? Pixel is probably the fastest phone out, but that probably won't be the case in a month. Too bad Corey is no longer on the phone plan that allows him 3 phones a year.

LG g6 is out already. Big thing this year is new aspect ratios g6 is 18x9 5.7" screen. Haven't seen it in person but pics look nice. I'm not a huge fan of the zero bezel look that is coming on the side and even the g6. I personally like to have a decent grip on my phone without putting my hands all over the screen.

At Verizon to have them look at my pixel. They have the brand new Galaxy S8 and S8+ out. Can't wait for Corey to get this. They are pretty sweet. Such a small chin and forehead compared to the pixel

I just don't understand how one would hold that phone and use it one handed without fumbling it constantly. I don't mind some bezels.

I'm lost. Are you asking a question or is this a joke and you are about to tell me the punch line?
