I planned to wrap up my 2 weeks with the Pixel C tonight however due to the fact that my Pixel C decided to fail a few hours ago (while I was typing up my review) I will need to put this on pause for a few days until Google can ship me a replacement. It looks like the flash storage module on the Pixel C is dead which lead to all of the data being lost and the device in a boot loop. Google should have the replacement out to me within the next week.
Back in September, Google dropped an unexpected bomb on the Android community with the announcement of the Pixel C. The Pixel C would be the first Android tablet manufacturered and released by Google itself. As the announcement progressed, it became clear that this tablet would be a very high end machine that was build with productivity in mind. I like Productivity so lets see if the Pixel C can replace my primary machine for the next 2 weeks.
It has only been 2 short weeks since I replaced my primary computer with the Android Powered RemixMini PC and I am sort of torn on this one. One one hand, I am already deeply engrained into the Android ecosystem but; on the other hand, this experiment shows that Android may not be ready to be a desktop operating system. In this post, I will be giving my final thoughts about the RemixMini.
It has been over a week since I switched to using the RemixMini as my primary computer at home and I realized that I have not been providing promised updates on how it is going. I figured that now is a better time then any to provide a few updates.
