We thought that, given the lack of visitors, the Puffins might become a little more timid around us. Not so much.

When I went to the Pixel 2XL from an iPhone the thing I noticed is just how superior it was in nearly every way within its native ecosystem. I still have a Pixel 3XL, though almost entirely de-Googled and still find it to be a winner.
