I’m thinking about my past experience selling TVs over the years and in my experience there were 2 distinct types of people buying TVs. Thinking back on these groups makes me think Apple might have an angle into the full TV market.
The tech narrative is that Siri sucks and Google Assistant is the second coming. I have been using Siri for years, and have been going 100% in on Android over the last few weeks and have given Google Assistant a solid effort. My experience has been a little different than the popular narrative.
Everyone reading this site likely knows I’m an iOS guy, but I’ve been spending the last week with Android 100% of the time. I have a Moto G4, which is a near stock Android phone with respectable specs and is running Android Marshmallow. Here are some of the little things I’ve noticed over the past week that make Android distinct from iOS in both good and bad ways.
I think a problem with advertising smart watches is that the things they do best are not particularly “sexy” features. I love getting texts on my wrist, and I triage my personal email extremely well from the watch as well. Unlocking my MacBook without lifting a finger is a dream. Checking the Weather on my watch is incredibly simple and almost always everything I need. Even having Siri on my wrist is a huge asset.
As we all know, the new MacBook Pros are eliciting quite a bit of frustration from the professional crowd. There are a few reasons for this, but the biggest thing I see sticking after almost a month of letting these machines ruminate in our collective conscience, is anger over the ports. In other words, #donglelife.
