Going Through Changes.

These last two weeks have been crazy for me. Ohio State won their 8th National Championship by beating Oregon in the first ever College Football Playoff National Championship, I enjoyed my 21st birthday, and I went through three rounds of interviews to find out that I will be joining Apple in a couple weeks as a Family Room Specialist. I can't tell you how exciting it has been for me.

Yeah I know.. I have an iPhone now. Turns out it isn't bad at all. Sorry 'bout it, but I am enjoying it... much more than my former Droid Turbo actually (read: http://goo.gl/QhPl9D). Aside from Google Keep, I have every Google app I need, optimized for my iPhone 6 Plus and looking great. It's really the best of both worlds.

Why iPhone? Well up until now, I didn't own an iOS device. I thought it would be important for me to own one since I will be relied on by Apple to be able to help people with their iOS devices. As a Family Room Specialist, I will "Help visitors to the Apple Store get more out of our products by sharing knowledge and providing exceptional customer service.

Don't worry, I plan on being as active on Google+ as I have been. You'll probably see some more Ohio State stuff too ;)

+Derek Traini​ Verizon was really nice when I had it. I don't miss it, though. My Straight Talk bill and service are better than my Verizon service was.

+Derek Traini​​ I don't think it's possible, but running Chrome OS is basically like running Chrome. Your friends best bet might be to head to a Best Buy or something and test one out. 😉

I'm taking a break from social media.

Well, not all of it.. yet. I'll still be on Twitter (@derektraini) for the time being, mainly until I find a news app for news I'll miss. I am going to try to eliminate all social media and focus on being more social. Sounds weird right? I've noticed how much I use my phone and I'm starting to phase out unnecessary apps and services that distract me from actual news, memories, and moments.

See you all later.

“Better Hide, Better Run” is the first song & video from our new 3-song EP, “Piece Of The Indestructible.” Beginning tomorrow, we need your help! We need you to share this video, and information about the new EP everywhere! Another way you can help us by making the album cover your profile picture on all of your social media pages. We will be doing the same.
This song is available with pre-order of the album beginning tomorrow here:
http://radi.al/Indestructible
The rest of the songs will be available Tuesday, June 9th.
We wouldn’t be here without each and every one of you. THANK YOU for being a part of this adventure with us.
