Great review of Note 10+. Most thorough I've seen so far. https://twitter.com/mspoonauer/status/1163493861563518976
Echo Auto invite came. Quite pleased with it for the price. Worth it for the Bluetooth accessory on my bluetoothless car.
Those of you buying a Note 10, are you going for the 10 or the 10+? What color. Asking for a friend.
Clearly Samsung more interested in their partnership with Microsoft than Google. Didn't hear the word Chromebook today either. https://twitter.com/LaurenGoode/status/1159208747111190533

Apple still knows how to tell a story and create aspirational experiences that drive their eco system. No one is else is close in that regard.
Samsung had had done pretty awful keynotes (anyone recall 2013?). This one was fine but doesn't come close to the polish that goes into an Apple keynote to make each event memorable.
Most important product that Samsung didn't mention at all was the Galaxy Fold. I do wonder if this device will ever ship.
Samsung showed some interesting stuff but I didn't feel any of it was aspirational at least to me. There was nothing I saw that impressed.

Unless Tim Cook hit your car at the mall and didn't leave a note I can't think of a single reason to buy a tablet that isn't an iPad.
 
If it’s used as a real tablet I’m in 200% agreement. I’d go as far as to say buying a 2 year old iPad is better than buying a brand new, high-end android tablet. The one area where I’ll quibble is if you literally want a sub $50 Netflix/YouTube/Kindle app device.
 
Because if we're being completely honest, a $50 Kindle Fire is better than a $200 iPod touch for most people.
 
not if you want to out it in your pocket and okay iOS games etc.
 
I'd agree. Cheap content consumption is fine on cheaper stuff. That said, I'd still buy a refurbished iPad.

As always stay tuned for @jsnell transcript and charts that break it all down.
Pretty sure what iPhone and iPad numbers will look like. The spin will be interesting.
One thing too look for from Apple's earnings is if they give actual numbers for News +, the first of the paid services Apple is bringing to market this year.
Anyone using a Ricoh GR III? Curious about the experience.
"I love the Galaxy Note but not the curved edge trend it helped create." O agree, I couldn't type on the Note. Too many errors and false touches on the curved screen.

"It's time to take Google's Pixel phones more seriously." 3a with nearly the same feature set as the 3 at a much lower price and availability on all carriers helped Google. Let's see what happens with the 4 https://www.engadget.com/2019/07/26/google-pixel-3a-sales-doubled-important/
 
Maybe I should get one. I still have an old Google Android phone but I don't even keep it charged.
 
they're quite good. I have a 3 but I'd buy a 3a. Arguably best camera on a phone and some very nice other features.
It would appear that what happens on your iPhone doesn't necessarily stay on your iPhone after all. #oops https://www.theverge.com/2019/7/26/8932064/apple-siri-private-conversation-recording-explanation-alexa-google-assistant
