    I just joined today after lurking awhile in the forums. My name is Lloyd, 70 years old and retired from the tech business. I've been gradually moving away from Apple gear for the last month as I'm not at all enamored of the direction the OS is taking in UI. And my needs are fairly mundane other than the music engraving I do as a hobby.

    Just got a brand new HTC One (M8) at the Verizon store. This is one sweet phone/phablet, whatever you'd like to call it. The screen is easily readable without my reading specs. But oh I have a lot to learn as I wend my way around the phone.

    Other gear is a Surface Pro (1st Gen) and HP 23-N010 Beats all-in-one desktop.

    Now to sell my 2 year old MBPr... :)

    I originally came here to read about Windows phones as I had not really looked at them in a very long time. But I was getting tired of the eye strain the iPhone w/iOS7 and now the new Yosemite on the Mac was giving me, that I figured it is time to make some changes.

    And since my needs are pretty minimal, the changeover isn't that daunting. I'll have to buy an app or two here and there, but I expected that.

    Now off to look at Golf GPS apps in the store.... :)

    I honestly don't know what to think of all those tech journalists who simply can't get their way through Windows 8.1, when you can do it!

    Welcome to the forums, o wise one!
