Pixel – The Best Phone by Google

If you are anything like me, you were pretty excited last October when Google announced the release of their Pixel and Pixel XL phones. It’s not as if I don’t love my iPhone 6 because I really do. It’s just that I often find myself feeding into the hype around new electronics, particularly Smart Phones.

Before we get acquainted with the whole Generation Z crowd and their relationship with the Internet, let’s figure out who are the people that make up Gen Z. Precise dates have not been assigned to when Generation Z emerged, but birthdates typically range anywhere from the mid-1990s to early 2000s—basically the seven to seventeen age range. What is undeniable is that Generation Z was practically born with some form of device in their hands, and that is because we handed it to them. By age two or three, most Gen Z members have been placated or distracted with a phone. It is too effective of a distraction not to use it … Read More ›
