2016 has well and truly begun. Slowly but surely, life has returned to the offices of OnePlus. Old faces have popped up in new places, and new faces have been making their introductions. One face, or snout, we were particularly happy to be welcoming back to the office was Albie’s. Following a brief stay at the hospital for surgery on her hind legs, everybody’s favorite puppy has finally made her way back to the office.
Another long-term absentee from our store made a comeback this week: USB Type-C adapters are back in stock. The USB Type-C port has long been a staple of the OnePlus 2’s design, offering an amazingly convenient way to charge your device and transfer data.
Our collective jaw hit the floor more than once this week, as the creative-photography-geniuses of our diverse community ran wild with the One Day, One Photo initiative (see the image above for proof!). We don’t envy our panel of judges, with this many mesmerizing options on offer, having to pick one photo to showcase each day makes for a daunting task indeed. We absolutely cannot wait to find out what else you guys have in store for us. Keep them coming!
Over on the forums, for our Question of the Week we asked you how you felt about the various types of meetups we’ve been putting up. We’re always trying to come up with new and exciting ways to interact with the people on whom we depend, you. So, if you’ve got any feedback or ideas, feel free to stop by and share your thoughts. If you’re feeling lucky, you can also cast your vote in the thread to participate in our weekly giveaway contest.
Also, did you know hurricane OnePlus has made landfall in the United Kingdom? If you’re from the land of Fish and Chips, make sure to stop by the OnePlus UK Facebook page for news on our local events in your area.
Speaking of the UK, we were absolutely shell-shocked to learn of the untimely passing of the original Iconoclast: David Bowie. One of the zaniest artists of our time, we’ve spent years playing and replaying some of our favorite Bowie songs. We’d love to hear from you about the Bowie songs that left a mark on you.
The movie industry lost another all-time great this week in the form of Alan Rickman. We can still remember the goosebumps we got as he scared the bejeebus out of us as both Severus Snape and Hans Gruber. With so many unforgettable roles to choose from, we have a hard time picking a favorite. What Rickman role was your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
More exciting developments are waiting just around the corner, so we hope you’re looking forward to next week’s update. If you have any thoughts on the topics discussed in this week’s update, you can stop by the forums to discuss them with the other members of the OnePlus family. That’s all folks, enjoy your weekend!
