Happy Monday!

Who will we be this week?

Music inspires so many things within ourselves and certain songs can pleasantly surprise us. Upon hearing “Remedy” by the Zac Brown Band from the Jekyll+Hyde album in my car when my music library was set to a random shuffle, the first word that came to mind was happy.

And then the word Monday.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

Happy Monday

Star Wars is everywhere.

Now that that’s settled, let’s move forward.

The Last Jedi writer and director Rian Johnson (Looper, The Brothers Bloom, Brick) has promised a new twist (or two…) for Star Wars: Episode VIII. As fans all over the world prepare for the December premiere of the eighth chapter in one of the greatest sagas concerning good vs. evil, we are looking for little tidbits of information to whet our theatrical appetite. Not the full meal or anything close to it, but just a delicious tasting menu. And in doing so, we’ve discovered that the highly-anticipated Last Jedi was written and directed not only by a brilliant moviemaker but by a lifelong Star Wars fan.

As the video after the jump shows, Rian Johnson’s enthusiasm is infectiously inspiring. Tapping into his excitement of being involved in a Star Wars film is more powerful than any Red Bull or triple latte.

The Last Jedi is a Star Wars movie made by one of its biggest fans. Therefore, this forthcoming film will be eight kinds of awesome, especially since Rian Johnson has already been hired to write an entirely new trilogy after this current trilogy.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

P.S. How does your Wookiee impersonation sound?

This Bud’s for All of Us…Someday

Is the Google Pixel less impressive than the iPhone X?

Arguably, yes.

Is the presentation style and delivery of the Google phone products less impressive (and a knock-off) of Apple and its famous product announcements?

Yes.

However, did Pixel Buds by Google just give the giant search engine company a leg up on the beloved tech company concerning the most innovative headphones/earbuds from Silicon Valley?

I’m thinking yes…

For traveling in foreign lands, the Google Pixel Buds are a game-changer…sort of.

The presentation in the video above seems to infer that both parties need a Google phone and its accompanying Pixel Buds. That might become problematic, since I know nobody in the consumer-centric city of Columbus, OH who even owns a Google phone, let alone the far reaches of the globe. Regardless, innovation has never been and will never be a one-stop destination. Over time, the Pixel Buds (the tech, not necessarily the name) could evolve as the leading mobile tech device for bridging the language barriers of people from all over the world in quick conversational moments.

And the key phrase there is “could evolve.” If the right company with a wider net of smartphone customers is able to take the impressive tech from the Pixel Buds and advance the features in such a way that it becomes marketable (ie-practical) for the general public to purchase and use, then that’s when the game-changing moment will occur in the travel sector and beyond. If only Google could utilize their search engine base (almost everybody) and partner with a rival that is the king of smartphones as well as introducing game-changing portable technology?

Bing bing! Ding ding!

The good news is Google can hear this obvious answer in 40 some odd languages.
