    Sweet. This looks interesting. Right now it does say, 'Video is Private' at the moment but I'm pretty sure you guys are just waiting to upload it.

    You don't think that'd be boring? Its a format that everyone seems to use, but we are certainly open to suggestions. Thanks for the input! We'll put this in our "Hmmm lets think about this" box :)

    I dunno. I kind of like the slideshow style of images and just listening to the content. Of course, I'm an ol' fashioned radio guy.

    @Ollie.. I like the way they had your user name up in video when talking about throwing away money .. Hehe send some our way...

    Thanks for video.. I'm also not into the side bar on Edge.. And tap to wake should be included with Nexus.. Plenty phones don't drain battery and utilize the feature.. Boohoo Google

    Awesome job guys keep it up. What I like is that you guys keep it under 5 minutes which is perfect for those wanting a quick recap.

    Dismiss my previous comment. This format actually works very well for the forums. One thing I love about this format is the ability to get everyone involved! I love seeing everyone's comments. It adds immensely to the discussion.

    First, I'm so glad you guys are upping the video game here!

    Second, might want some egg crate foam or at least some blankets on the walls. Will make the acoustics better and dampen the slight "big empty room" sound. ;)

    Third, OMG! OMG! They featured my comment!

    In all seriousness though, excellent video for a first news breakdown guys! Keep up the great work and Happy Thanksgiving to you too.

    I agree I like the tap to wake feature. I loved it on the lg g3 and it would be perfect on this slightly cumbersome device. The feature didn't drain battery at all on the g3.
