Thursday, February 9, 2017:  Mark and Paula headed to the local Verizon store to get new smart phones from sales rep Kyle Payne. 
The latest and hottest item was the Pixel by Google.....the smartest thing around!  They use the Android operating system.
There is a fingerprint scanner on the back side to easily and quickly unlock the phone.
Once unlocked, the entire world is at the user's fingertips.  A great upgrade from smart phones from just two years before. 

There is even an verbal search feature.  Just say, "OK Google" followed by a request like, "What is the temperature?"  The smart phone will respond accordingly with a voice giving the information.  

The Google Pixel is in such popular demand that the silicone rubber protective cases were on backorder and are not shown in these photos.  This is a hot item.

The interesting part is that they spent so much time checking new features that they didn't even bother to try the telephone.  They knew it would work. 

In the end, Mark and Paula happily waked out of the store with his and hers Goggle Pixel phones.

Joke of the day:  A snake charmer married a mortician.  They had towels in their bathroom labeled "Hiss" and "Hearse."

Quote of the day:    These phones may be smarter than me!   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
