OnePlus has faced it's share of challenges as it grows and grows from a small startup to a well-known name in smartphones. The company has changed a lot in the last several years, but that doesn't mean it had to sell its soul to get there.
This week finally gave me something I've dreamed of for two years: I am back to one consolidated music library. While I'm more that the gang's all back together again, it's also another stark reminder that YouTube Music remains an app that's trying to run without getting down its ability to walk.
As much as everyone desperately wants a return to the old normal, it's becoming increasingly obvious that the new one isn't going away anytime soon. That means that our technology will need to adapt as much as we do.
This is a marathon, not a sprint, and if we're all going to make it to the finish line in a few months, we need to make sure that we're not only helping each other when we can, but we're also taking care of ourselves, too.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra's cameras are great, and zooming is a big part of that experience. But the quality is so bad after 30X it's laughable. Samsung should've known better than to ship this phone with "100X" zoom.
Lukewarm reaction to Samsung's Galaxy S20 Ultra shows just how high the expectations are for a $1400 smartphone. When you're being charged laptop money for a smartphone, it's not unreasonable to expect excellence.
This was one of the busiest week's we've seen so far in 2020, but it certainly won't be the last. From the Z Flip's sudden launch to the Galaxy S20's camera prowess to canceling Mobile World Congress, this week was a whirlwind.
The latest Galaxy S20 leaks don't paint an affordable picture: a €999 starting price for the Galaxy S20 (with 5G), up to €1349 for the Galaxy S20 Ultra. That's expensive, but Samsung won't be alone in 2020; all flagships are going to be expensive.
