Pre-order new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones

The new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones crash-landed at the very top of the Dxomark Mobile Rankings with a score of 98, topping the camera modules of the latest iPhones and Galaxies [iPhone X not measured yet since it’s not released yet]. Check further down the DxoMark page if you want to see the bar-chart and pros/cons summary.

These new phones are now available for pre-ordering at the official Google Store and also at Project Fi and also at Verizon Wireless with an optional trade-in promotion up to $300.

Prices are $649 (64GB) and $749 (128GB) for the Pixel 2, and $850 (64GB) and $950 (128GB) for the Pixel 2 XL.

All of these early pre-orders qualify for a free “Google Home Mini” (the new donut shaped one, priced $49 brand new).

PS: speaking of smartphones, the previous generation Sony XZ (unlocked, USA warranty, 32GB) is on sale for $350 in two different colors by Amazon herself.

Thursday: 20% off Living Social (eg custom photo books, canvas prints, etc)

For Thursday, coupon code FALL20 gets you 20% off in various categories at Living Social (now owned by Groupon) that includes the various custom photo print offers (typically under Decor). Pay attention to the terms because many of them do not include free shipping.

One offer that consistently includes free shipping is the Canvas On Demand 16×20-inch Canvas Prints, dropping the 1-pack to $24 and the 2-pack to $40. You can use the coupon on up to three Local Deals, maximum one unit per Local Deal.

Google Pixel Book invades Amazon

One of the brand new Google products announced yesterday [you can re-live our live-tweeting of the event if you have already finished reading the Yellow Pages] is now available for purchase at one of Google’s current bitter frenemy rivals, Amazon! The two i5 versions of the Google Pixel Book (2017) are available for pre-ordering for $999 (i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB) or for $1199 for the 256GB storage version. Amazon’s release date estimate for these is October 31st.

The third model is not available for pre-order yet, not even at the Google Store where it reveals the price of the i7 model (16GB RAM, 512GB storage), it is $1649. That’s $650 more than the base model.

Note that the PixelBook Pen is NOT included with the devices. You have to purchase it separately for $99.

Needless to say, you can get a better value with other ChromeOS devices [eg Samsung Chromebook PRO for $500] or Windows laptops, this is more of a prestige flagship in the world of Chrome OS and ChromeDroid. During the keynote they showed someone using the Adobe Lightroom Android app on this to do their lightrooming.


Another interesting thing that could potentially have Google go head to head with Samsung in 2018 or beyond: the development of the stylus pen for the PixelBook could also make its way into the Pixel smartphone line.

So perhaps the Pixel Ultra “meeting” that was teased by Google employees during the Keynote is actually this: a Pixel phone with a PixelBook Pen, a direct competitor to the Galaxy Note 8 line! Or that “Ultra” could have been a sly shot at the “iPhone X”.

B&N website coupon: 20% off One Item

If you like to buy books at the Barnes and Noble website, they have a new promotion running until 10/9/17 at 11:59PM, coupon code FRIENDSFAM17 gets you 20% one item at their website. The usual coupon exclusions apply.

Heads Up: CreativeLIVE’s MEGA Photo Week is October 9-13

This is a heads up. I will post more reminders as we get closer, but in case you want to plan ahead for this, next week, October 9-13 (Monday through Friday) in 2017, Creative LIVE will be having their Photo Week 2017. There are five days of FREE live-streaming classes, with TWO parallel channels running per day (think of it as ESPN and ESPN2). There is a variety of content planned: 40 classes, five keynotes, and five photo critiques.

Instructors include Lidnsay Adler, Joe McNally, among a total of twenty photographers. You can find a detailed list of the classes and the schedule under the various sub-tabs at the Photo Week page.

During the five day Photo Week (October 9-13, 2017) you can watch the live streaming classes for FREE. If you want to watch them at any point after the promotion ends, you can purchase the whole bundle of 40 classes for $200 total as a special promotion running during Photo Week 2017. That’s $5 per class. If you are only interested in one or two of those classes, you can instead buy them individually.

This is a screenshot of Day #1 of Photo Week, aka Monday October 9 in 2017:
