Listen: Bizarre 'Cyrcle Phone' Surprises at CES 2020
"So interesting. So circular so the circle phone made the rounds at C. E. S. US thinks Jason Hall for reading that Dadjo circles spelled C. Y. R. C. L. by the way sue not in the traditional. We'll method that you would spell it in English It fits it fits android nine into a circular display kind of clumsily Has To headphone jacks one on each side. So you could have it in the middle of you and a friend gas and just enjoy the circular killer display right there in In your hands it aims to come to the market in the next twelve months And it was first I launches a kickstarter in two thousand fifteen. It's been development since then there's no price yet There's a Hashtag which is be non Rectangular in non is B. E. N. O. N. there's no E.

So there's the shapeless shapeless approach which is dead maybe the be all and all of where technology is heading for personal computing I don't know maybe I'm just so used to it but I feel like the rectangle. Tanggula approach is probably the more I don't know it's it makes a lot more sense to me nuts. Because that's what we've been using for the last wouldn't that if we we go three hundred years into the future and we're still staring at rectangles in our hands yes right posits. I Wa- at all I.
