As an adult, the warmer months tend to blur together like long-forgotten calendar notifications hitting you all at once. "Wait, it's June? Now it's July? Mid-August? How did we get here?" Forget about the "Sunday Scaries" — nothing beats that sinking feeling of existential dread when you realize it's been X number of years since you've been out of school. Meaning it's been X number of years since you've had a proper summer vacation. Bummer. Sure, if your company's big enough, they might throw you a summertime bone by letting you out at 2 p.m. on Friday or catering an occasional BBQ luncheon.

LG is definitely anything but the fastest to roll out big Android updates to its devices, but once it (finally) gets the ball rolling, it's, well... on a roll. Like now, for instance. The update to Android 9 Pie has recently gone out to the V40 - unlocked, on AT&T, or Verizon - as well as the G7. So today LG and AT&T have added the V35 ThinQ to the party.

Also, Xiaomi has been open about following Apple's marketing strategy and design for years. Yet now that the company has outgrown that phase it's somewhat disappointing to learn Xiaomi took Peter Tarka's work (a 3D artist) without permission. To make matters worse, the image was actually commissioned by its rival LG. You can see the two images below and how (almost) identical they are. Some...
