Video: Apple's Ecosystem

DetroitBORG Apple Ecosystem

The Apple ecosystem is the ecosystem many people have come accustomed to. It's the group of Apple-branded devices that work so well together. Why wouldn't they? They are all made by one company. Being within this ecosystem, owning these family of products can be incredibly pricey. The top of the line iPhone will put anyone back $1000. That's it if you purchase the "affordable" configuration.

It's nice to be within Apple's "walled garden". It's safe, secure, and enjoyable for the most part. However, what about when you may want to try something different? Change is good right? Too much of one thing is bad, isn't it? From iMessage to iPad, Apple has a service for almost anyone, but stepping outside of Apple's ecosystem can be a hassle. Marques Brownlee aka MKBHD and Andrew Erickson aka "The Apple Sheep" both published two very interesting videos on Youtube about Apple's ecosystem. I suggest watching Andrew Erickson's video on the "Tailosive Tech" Youtube channel first and then Marques Brownlee's below. Both are done well and give you some insight on what it looks like to be inside of Apple's "walled garden" and what it means to be in Apple's "walled garden". Check them both out and tell me what you think in the comments below.

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…
