A first look at the Nomad Rugged Pixel Buds A-Series case

I gravitate to build quality and premium materials so don't mind paying a little more. I believe the Nomad Pixel Buds A-Series case is worth a look if you are in the market.

Google does not tout any performance gains, however, the Nest Hub seems to be more responsive and smoother when navigating the UI with touch. I also noticed faster loading times when launching videos on Youtube or my Nest cameras. It's not every day a major tech firm l
