    I think I'm far away from getting a wearable. :P Until it can last the week I'm not really that interested.

    Just to note...I'm still over 40% on my battery. :P
    Pebble Steel does. My SWR10 does. It depends on what you want to do. Basic notifications, the pebble is great. No mic though.

    Three best designed of the more popular brands: Moto 360, Asus Zen Watch, Pebble Steel. The first two are Android Wear and the Steel is cross platform. I wouldn't mind an update to the Pebble Steel with the mic built in, but for my needs I don't think I need it. You can root the Android options and side load Here Maps on it to give turn by turn directions. Doing this makes the Sony Watch even more useful because it is the only offering with stand alone GPS. Lots of choices out there.

    Well than they have quality control issues. Do you have warranty on them?

    I think I'll wait until things mature a bit more. At this moment in time a smartwatch is low on my priority list. :P

    However cool I think the idea is. :P

    Apparently they have a 12 month warranty on their boots. They apparently send you a free shipping box.

    They appear to be a good brand but I read that other top end boots do the same occasionally.

    These are quite old but I have never had this issue on any other hiking shoe.

    I bought these and my Asolo boots the same year. Both have about the same number of miles on them, 300+ and the Asolo's still look brand new...

    Try this out.
    114(minus) the year in which you were born.
    For eg:
    If you're born in 1970, then
    114-70=44(your age)
    It works!

    Yeah.... that makes sense.

    You can also subtract the year you were born from 2014... try it, it works!

    As long as you have a hundred multiplier for the century and 14 (current calendar year in the 21st century) this logic should work....

    Yeah we keep thinking about a new car and keep convincing ourselves that it's not the right time. Nice car though. :)

    I tried to post this earlier, but it got wiped out...so here goes.

    I stopped to check out the N6, Z3, and 830 before going to internship today. Here are my impressions:

    I still like the Z3 and in a perfect world, i'd get a cheap N5 as a back up and use a z3 as my primary. I'm too broke to do that right now.

    N6:
    - like the screen
    - not put off by the size or design
    - feels like a larger moto x, which is ok by me
    - feels slower than it usually is, because of the encryption issues
    - really wished that there was a split screen to take advantage of the real estate

    I wouldn't get one now, but I am not unopposed to owning one for a trial run at some point.

    830:

    - I can see why Sahib likes it
    - it is a nice phone if you don't want it to do much
    - like it fit in hand and design a lot

    MSFT missed an opportunity here. Wished that they took a page from Sony and just dropped a s800 chip in there and called it a day by selling this thing at $375 unlocked with a US LTE model with AWS and the international one they pushed through their carrier partners in droves.

    You are stupid, WP doesn't need high specs to run good 😠
    See what I did there ;) I agree with you, L830 could have been a great competitor to Z3 Compact with a better processor. Now it's only another midranger, although with a good camera.
    Anyway, I kind of like Nexus after what I read and would be interested to buy it when price drops. Biggest pro's are Amoled and Motorola's way of "glance" which would certainly be missed with a new phone. Only downside is that I would have to buy it from UK or Germany.

    I think I'll buy a Z3... :P

    I thought about the Nexus but it was too big for me but I can see MIA liking it.

    I agree totally that the L830 could have been so much more. Oh well.

    I decided to charge my phone but I could have easily waited until tomorrow. Due to my low usage throughout the day I can easily 3-4 days on it. :)

    What difference from the L920!
