GIVEAWAY: DADDY’S GOT A BRAND NEW TOY — TELUS x The Lenovo Moto Z — Changing the Way We Smartphone!

“You need a Moto Z.”

— Casey Palmer to basically everyone he talks to, gushing over how awesome his phone is.

In the beginning, I wondered what was so cool about a phone without a headphone jack.

TELUS x The Lenovo Moto Z — Moto Z Front and Back ComboWhen Apple announced the iPhone 7 in September, people lost their minds—what’s the point of having a device with access to millions of songs if you can’t listen to them? Buy wireless earbuds, they said. Change up the charging port with a dongle, they said.  It took a feature everyone knew so well and did away with it—for a number of good reasons, mind you (waterproofing and Bluetooth redundancy to name a couple), but for all the negative hoopla they got about it, people failed to note two things:

  1. We must embrace better methods to make better phones, and
  2. That Apple didn’t do it first.

GIVEAWAY: A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 1 — Keep Your Phone Game on Fleek with the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3!

Ahoy there, Internetland — you couldn’t seriously believe I’d let the Christmas season pass me by without putting out some sweet giveaways to celebrate the holidays, right? Though not as expansive — or admittedly, prepared — as the Techmas event at my buddy Zach’s site, I’ve partnered with a number of brands who have all sorts of things they’d love you to have to ring in the New Year!

The first gift good ol’ Case Cringle has for the good little girls and boys out in Internetland is the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3, a 5.5″ Android smartphone that can do just about everything other flagship phones can do, but at a fraction of the price!

But let’s get something straight from the drop — this phone is not impervious to gravity.

I first got my hands on the Idol 3 back in June when Citizen PR invited me to BMO Field so I could witness an announcement first-hand  as Alcatel onetouch partnered with Toronto FC, and a Dwayne de Rosario Testimonial Match as icing on the cake!
