Everything I missed last week

Last week was pretty busy…

Everything I missed last week
  • Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 grounded a flight (to put it lightly) and other replacement phones have exploded. AT&T is now only swapping the Note 7 for other phones. The phone might as well be dead.
  • The Verge is turning five November 1, with a redesign dropping the same day.
  • Google launched a Pixel phone. It looks like an iPhone. The blue colour isn’t coming to Australia. It’s exclusive to Telstra. It’ll disappear in a Google spring-cleaning effort in a year or so.
  • The Microsoft Band is dead.
  • PlayStation VR is out this week.
