December 16th, 2017

Google’s Pixel 2 and 2 XL might not be without their drawbacks, but the pair are still excellent phones with some of the best software and cameras out there. The most significant real disadvantage to each has been the price tag. At $649-949, they weren’t exactly cheap.

When it went on sale in late September, Levi’s Commuter Trucker Jacket was the first piece of clothing to integrate Google’s Project Jacquard touch-gesture functionality. At $350 a pop, it’s not a surprise that the Jacquard by Google app (which is used to customize and control the jacket) shows just 100-500 installs.

For the unfamiliar, Google provides an option to trade-in a limited selection of phones in exchange for credit towards a purchase made through Project Fi or the Google Store.
