I’ve been wanting to do a video about Google’s Pixel phones for a while now. Ever since the company announced kinda lackluster sales for the premium Pixel 3 but then turned right around and launched the much more budget friendly Pixel 3a.
Then, Jon Rettinger posted his video, provocatively titled “No One Cares About Pixel”, and it's great. You should watch it. Link in the description. But that also got me thinking, Drax-Style, not so much about what is the Pixel but why is the Pixel? What does its existence do for Google and for us? And, if we’re seeing that change with the 3a or with the 4, what does that mean?
To help me figure it all out, I asked on the man who literally got me started in this business, and, yeah, that aside, one of the smartest people I know. Executive Editor of The Verge and host of the Processor on YouTube, Dieter Bohn.
