Welcome to another Pulse!
I thought I was super busy the week before last, but last week, took it to a whole new level! Not complaining though! It’s exciting.
If you haven’t already, going through what happened at Apple’s 2018 iPhone event is worth it, although Apple Watch series 4 stole the show, I think.
How do you feel about Pulse’s banner image (the one at the top) and logo? I’m thinking of changing it. Let me know your thoughts by replying to this email?
Also, if you like Pulse, share it with only one friend that you think would like it. You can use this link. Thank you!

In a special study, GWI surveyed 4,438 internet users aged 16-64 in 🇺🇸 and 🇬🇧 and categorised them into three categories:
