Google Home and the LG G6 from Cellular Sales

Maybe you’ve wondered what the ingredients were to your favorite pasta dish from Cheesecake Factory or what the actual lyrics were to the song you’ve been humming all day. If these kind of questions often plague your mind, we’d like to introduce you to our new friend, Google Home.

Google Home is powered by the Google assistant and you can ask it virtually anything. The universe is in your kitchen (or wherever you decide to place Google Home) just by saying the phrase “ok Google.” Home is full of many features that will make your day easier and more exciting. For example, it puts you in direct control of songs straight from YouTube and Google Play Music. It also allows you to stream directly from your smart phone so you can enjoy that summer playlist you made last summer.

Another amazing feature is that Google Home is almost like your in-house trivia partner. It can give you answers to almost anything you want to know, including the latest on weather, traffic, finance, sports and more. Plus, it can help you plan your day by asking questions such as “What is the nearest pharmacy?” or “What time does the food court close at the mall?” It also makes life simpler by managing everyday tasks such as your work commute, flight information, shopping lists, alarms, timers or to-do lists.

Finally, Google Home allows you to sync it with other compatible smart devices. For example, you can stream videos to your TV with Chromecast or turn up your Nest thermostat. Google Home is the gift that keeps on giving.

The next latest innovative product that will make your life easier is the new LG G6 smartphone. It’s compact aluminum and glass body makes it fit comfortably in your hand, but its 5.7-inch screen gives you tablet-like views. Talking about views, the G6 captures more striking photos with the innovative wide-angle front and rear cameras, which gives you the ideal solution to making sure everyone’s in the selfie. Additionally, watch your favorite movies and video content like never before with Dolby Vision.

What’s an innovative product without the latest in charger technology!? The G6 is powered up by wireless charging, so no more messing around with messy cables while also having charging everywhere you go. With an IP68 rating, this phone proves tough against water and dust and can survive in up to a meter of water for up to 30 minutes.

This new smartphone is now available on Verizon’s unlimited network.

iOS 10.3

Apple recently released 10.3 and then a 10.3.1 patch. There are several cool features you might want to check out like iCloud calling on Verizon. I particularly liked the new file system, which created some much need room in my storage and speeded up the processing a bit. Here are the highlights of the most recent update.

 

Find My AirPods

Lose your AirPods? Go to the Find My Phone app to track them down. This isn’t really a GPS locator, but a log of the last time your AirPods were connected. Hopefully, that will narrow down your search.

 

iCloud calling now on Verizon

As a Verizon customer, you can answer WiFi calls without having the iPhone nearby, using any of your iCloud connected devices such as your Mac, your iPad, and even your Apple Watch.

 

Switch to Apple File System

Last year, Apple introduced APFS (Apple File System) replacing it’s 30-year-old HFS+ system. Now it is included on iOS 10.3. APFS scales consistently across platforms, is optimized for the types of storage we use today like flash and solid state, and it stores data in way that should free up space. I gained an extra 2 GB of room on my phone. APFS should make file access faster, more stable and more secure (with robust encryption).

 

iPhone 5 and 5c

If you have iPhone 5 or 5c, you probably had trouble updating to iOS 10.3. These two models still use a 32-bit processor, so they could not install. iOS 10.3.1 should solve that problem, but this is the last update to support those models. Going forward, Apple will no longer be providing updates on 32-bit processors.

 

Podcasts Widget

As podcasts have made a comeback over the last couple years, Apple has made it easier to access your current podcasts. Now you can add a podcast widget to control center. When you swipe right, you can see a list of the current podcast similar to the list of current music. To add podcasts, swipe right to see your control center. Scroll down to the bottom of page and select “edit.” You can add podcasts or other widgets as desired.

 

Apple ID profile in Settings

After you install iOS 10.3, your Apple ID info will display at the top of Settings. Tap your picture to see and edit your personal data, iCloud information, iTunes information, and see all the connected devices.

 

Hourly Weather forecast in Maps (3D Touch)

When you look up a location in the maps app, you’ll see the current temperature in the bottom right corner. On the iPhone 6/6s or later, you can access an extended weather forecast. Simply press and hold the weather icon for a forecast snapshot. Continue holding and the weather app will open to that location.

Getting to Know Cellular Sales: Meet Verizon Account Manager Jeff McGee

  1. What do you do for Cellular Sales?

    Jeff McGee

I sell Verizon products, services, and accessories, as well as train new hires.

  1. What do you enjoy about working at Cellular Sales?

I enjoy working with the people. The people I work with are motivated and fun, so it’s a good balance between work and play. Time flies on the sales floor when you enjoy those who are around you.

  1. Can you share a particularly satisfying experience or proud moment from work?

There are plenty of them. Most revolve around team selling and being able to have co-workers that help at any time to create a satisfying experience for the customer. It’s a win-win for all parties involved.

  1. What do you like about Cellular Sales that sets it apart from other companies?

The earning potential makes this company different from other sales-based companies. There is no ceiling cap on the earning potential, with the freedom to create your own sales process and own your customers. The harder you work, the more you make.

  1. What was the most unusual, interesting or fun job you had prior to joining Cellular Sales?

I worked for Sprint. It was in the mall, and you meet the most interesting people from all walks of life. Some people open up their entire life story, and you really get to learn who people are and a better understanding of where they come from.

  1. What are some of your hobbies?

I love running and weightlifting. I ran track in high school. It’s a great stress reliever and a healthy way to vent.

  1. Do you have a good story about your team or something funny that happen at work?

We have very good team chemistry, and it is very common to see us telling jokes about each other back and forth on the sales floor. Customers always tend to enjoy it as it lightens the mood and helps provide an amazing experience for our customers. Sometimes we get customers that chime in with us. Everyone has a great time in our stores.

  1. What kind of phone do you use?

I use a galaxy s7.

  1. How did you end up working for Cellular Sales? Referral, etc.

I was referred by an employee while I was working at Sprint.

  1. How are you different now than when you began your career with Cellular Sales?

I have a greater understanding of people and strive for the goals I want. I ask myself, “Am I doing everything I can to earn the happiness that I want?” Between the people I’ve encountered and the bar always being raised, I have developed into a more well-rounded person than I was four years ago.

  1. Where do you see yourself or hope to be in the next five years?

I hope to see myself on the warehousing side of business. I want to go into the field of operations and supply chain either for Cellular Sales or a company with culture similar to it.
