Get Off Of Snapchat Now!

I'm so serious! Go to your settings, delete your account. Don't worry about your streaks, followers, or friends. It's time to leave Snapchat! Ok, now that I have your attention, it's seriously time to give up on Snapchat. At one point, Snapchat was the social media like no other. Stories, self-destructing photos, videos, and messages, as well as filters, were all features that made Snapchat stand out. That time is no more. 

In 2017, other social media's made it a point to copy most -- if not all -- of Snapchat's features. Look at Instagram for example. It's practically Snapchat on steroids. Not only are the features you get on Snapchat in Instagram, but you also have the traditional feature of posting photos that you don't want to disappear after a certain amount of time. 

I know what you're thinking. You're probably wondering if your friends are on Instagram. They are. As of the end of 2017, approx. 500 million more people are on Instagram than there are on Snapchat. Trust me when I say your friends will have no problem going full-time on Instagram. Plus IG has DMs that aren't confusing and hard to navigate through. Many people are starting to question why to keep Snapchat anyway. Youtuber, Sam Sheffer ran a poll on Twitter asking people if they still use Snapchat because most of his many followers have left and joined Instagram. 

For me and my friends, I would wish that they all leave Snapchat and just go for the better platform. Let's face it, Instagram is the better platform. I know for one, I like to use Instagram to showcase and check out some amazing shots taken with #teampixel.

So will you do it? Will you finally delete Snapchat? If not, tell me why.

Review: iPhone X is great, but Pixel 2 shows how to turn it up a notch

In late October millions of people, including myself, stayed up at on a Thursday night/Friday morning to preorder the iPhone X. It's the usual story when new iPhone's preorder floodgates open up. That was my first preordering experience with Apple and it was fine. Many others had a few issues. I stayed up for the first time because this was the first time, in a long time, that Apple has made major changes to iPhone. What I had in my pocket at the time was an iPhone 7 Plus. I had the iPhone 6S Plus and the first generation Google Pixel before it. After purchasing and using the iPhone X for little over 3 months and switch back to a Pixel 2, I wanted to write about what I liked, what I didn't like, and why I switched back to Android with the Pixel 2.

The Hardware -- The GoodThe iPhone X is sexy af. Yea, you read that correctly. From when I first opened the box and when I first placed it in my hands, it felt like I was putting a Rolex on my wrist. Though it may not have been a…

News: Google explains their design secrets behind Pixel phones

Last year, Google did the same by giving CNET the inside scoop on the first generation Pixel phone's design. This time, Google shared its secret sauce across the tech news media.

Normally the word "design", in relation to smartphones, is synonymous with Samsung and Apple, but Google has strengthened their efforts in their smartphone design to bring their artistry into the conversation. Android Pit, a website that covers news about technology and business, got the inside scoop interviewing Alberto Villarreal, the designer of the Google Pixel 2 XL, on Pixel phones design secrets.

In the U.S., a 64GB Pixel 2 will set you back $649 outright, or $27.04 monthly when purchased through Google's financing program. That raises to $749 for a 128GB model ($31.21 per month on financing) if you want 128GB of storage.

The Pixel 2 XL starts at $849 with 64GB of storage ($35.38/month on financing), or $949 for 128GB ($39.54/month on financing).

The Pixel 2 is available in three colo…

Pixel 3: This Could Be It...

Tech news sites erupted when people, that installed the latest Android P beta on available Android phones, noticed a specific smartphone mockup. Hidden in the settings when switching to the new "home pill", there's a smartphone like no other as seen below.

A lot of people, including myself, believe that this is the first look of the upcoming Pixel 3. For the past two years, Google has held a "Made By Google" event to show off it's latest hardware. The Pixel, phone by Google, has been the highlight of the event. Like the talented designer that Ben Geskin @VenyaGeskin1 is, he took to his skills to create a lifelike mockup and it looks absolutely gorgeous.

Why do I think this is pretty much spot on to what we can expect Google to announce in the fall? If you currently have a Pixel 2 and head to the "Active Edge" settings, you can see that the design of the phone is located for instructional purposes.

What do you think? Did Google just reveal the desi…
