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

The Huffington Post, in its infinite wisdom —
Sorry, I can’t even finish that sentence without bursting out laughing. Let me try this again.
The Huffington Post, in its infinite absurdity, has introduced a new catchphrase to the world through Millennials. As DJ Khaled would say, it’s a phrase that the world is “catched by.” And that phrase is “woke.” Generally (key word here), woke is “A state of perceived intellectual superiority one gains by reading The Huffington Post” (Urban Dictionary).
During SNL’s 43rd season premiere, the writers took this new catchphrase (and, by association, the Huffington Post) to task through the avenue of fashion.
Joke: The Huffington Post and gender non-identification.
For those wondering, the title refers to the show, not the song. However, both are equally awesome.
(Bonus points if you can name the show that featured the aforementioned song)
When lightning in a bottle happens, specifically regarding sitcoms, there’s an eternal fascination with everything involving the show. True story (name the character and/or sitcom!). The shelf life is forever. The stories, characters and the tone often define entire decades, generations and/or certain parts of the country from a treasured moment in time for millions of viewers. And as soon as the sitcom series finale airs, there’s a strange juxtaposition of sadness and uplifting nostalgia from fans.
I know because I’m one of these fans.
There’s a personal investment to learn everything from these shows that was an treasured part of growing up. These facts include interesting tidbits from in front of the camera, as well as from behind the camera.
Just when you thought there was nothing new to learn about Friends…
With this brand new behind-the-scenes story in August of 2017 (series finale was in 2004), it’s safe to presume that a Friends super fan now knows everything about this show in a genuinely comprehensive sense. You could even say a Friends super fan knows Friends like the back of their hand.
Wait, their hand or that Las Vegas blackjack dealer’s hand?
(Double bonus points if you can name the actor who played that Las Vegas blackjack dealer!)
Time to hit the
showers cold shower.
Jimmy’s Daily Planet strives to be on the cutting-edge of a variety of topics and issues. For today’s edition, this involves an interesting tidbit that will likely not receive a standing ovation. However, keep in mind this advice is coming from a Navy SEAL. And it was an elite branch of Navy SEALs who took down Osama Bin Laden, so there may be something truly real (and incredibly badass) about this showering curveball.
If somebody would like to experiment with this frigid Act III in their showering routine, please do so and report back in the comments section below.
I’ll take your word (and Navy SEAL Clint Emerson’s word) on it.
