Spicing up the deal is a Daydream VR headset that can be added to the cart for free!

The Pixel series of smartphones feature flagship specs with some of the best smartphone cameras currently in the market. Of course, there are updated Android flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 now available with the latest and greatest features but the Pixels are no slouch as they still feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC, a 5.5-inch AMOLED QHD screen and a 12.3 MP shooter for stills and 4K video recording.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
