– Jeremy Toeman, Vice President, Product Survivor Extreme Modular Case for Apple iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus – Gray/Black. I liked Ender’s Shadow and Jeremy is my boss, but I have to disagree with him; the original Ender’s Game is better.

Finally, I feel the need to say I may vehemently disagree with the author’s politics, but his writing in Ender’s Game is unparalleled for page turning sci-fi goodness..

Oculus has also built out its ranks with some of gaming’s most technically gifted minds, from Id Software co-founder and Doom creator John Carmack to Valve’s Michael Abrash. Those additions helped the company develop techniques for vastly reducing latency Survivor Extreme Modular Case for Apple iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus – Gray/Black.

I’ve come to a realization about wearable tech: more smartwatches need to be a bit more like the Amazfit Bip. As in: easy, cheap, and with excellent battery life.

And, maybe, for some, that’s what matters most..
