    The smart way to buy a used phone online

    – The time has come. I’m coming clean. I’ve had the S7 for two years now. And being someone that films the latest and greatest tech everyday, it’s gotten me wanting a new phone.

    Trying The Cheapest Smartphones on Amazon

    – Hey, guys, this is Austin. And this is the cheapest smartphone available on Amazon, the Pocophone F1. Just kidding, this is for obscenely rich people.

I can’t do that. I’m not good at doing that. You attach the device to your sleeve, bag strap, bra strap, or put it in your pocket. Or have it attached to the wrist strap that…

    Build a Cross-Platform Mobile App in 30 Minutes with Firebase (Cloud Next ’18)

    JAMES DANIELS: I’m James Daniels. I’m an engineer on the Firebase team. Who here has used Firebase before? Cool. Got a good representation in the room. So I’m going to recap a couple little things. So it might be a repeat for those of you familiar with the product. And then I’m going to jump into a live demonstration. I’m going to do some coding, hopefully. That’s the live demo warning. I’m on stage in front of a lot of people writing code. Sometimes things happen.
