Finding this game in the Google Play Store was a Daydream come true! Have you ever played a game that just stuck with you?

Are Nest Products Worth it?

Yes. Nest is the Apple of all things that aren‘t actually Apple. That is, Nest products look really good, work really well -and probably cost a good bit more than something that doesn‘t look as good and work as well. And that makes sense when you remember that Nest was started by one of the guys who helped make the first iPod. No, there was ever going to be anything boring about Nest as a company.

Why do people care so much about wireless charging?

Wired vs. wireless. Thanks to the popularity of glass-backed phones like the Galaxy S8, LG V30, and iPhone X, wireless charging is now more prominent than it‘s ever been.
