Add a Little Wood to Your Phone from TOAST

If you recall, back in 2013, Motorola introduced the idea of having a real wood back cover on your Moto X. But did you know that a year before, in 2012, TOAST already has a successful Kickstarter project to add a wood cover to your phone? It started with iPhones, which makes sense given its popularity, and this was after all, a Kickstarter. But they were successful and moved on to putting a real wood cover on many different devices such as laptops, tablets, gaming systems, even the Google Home assistant.

There are so many options now, for TOAST covers. And available for so many different phones. Take a look at my video review for all my feedback, and then go to TOASTMADE.COM to check out their work for yourself. If you're into the natural real wood look, you'll be glad you did.

Verizon Wear24 Smartwatch: It Takes the Custom Out of Android

Android smartwatches are not nearly as popular as Google and Apple once hoped they would be. Both companies put forth major investments and effort into that category back in 2014 and 2015. But frankly, smartwatches are more of a “cool” accessory then they are a “must have necessity”.

So while many device manufacturers you’d expect a newer device to come have decided to concede to the lack of sales, Verizon has finally decided it’s time to give it a go. It came out of nowhere. There were no leaks, no rumors.  that could have helped us see this coming, and from Verizon nonetheless. 

I’m going to be a little untraditional, and I’m going to start with the bad. Because the bad, is bad. Bad enough that it is definitely a deal breaker.
