    Looks like it's another quiet day here. I'm at work so I cannot blow the threads up again like I did last night.

    There appears to be no fireworks for new years here.
    New austerity measures are in effect?

    It's like Sahib said, the folding clothes part that sucks the most about laundry.
    I actually don't mind it.

    The new case makes the big OPO more manageable. Much better than the black Tudia case.

    Yup. My new case is the same and it looks like I've gotten the better bamboo case to go with it too. The OPO does feels much more manageable with the new cases.

    Whenever I want to be mindless, sure. But when it is a ton of clothes to fold, forget it.

    I tend to do one or two loads at a time. I like dish washing as well, very therapeutic. Along with car washing and waxing the car. I'm not a big fan of yard work though.

    Speaking of beasts, I ran a couple benchmark apps to compare my new tablet (iPad Air 2) against my previous tablet (the Surface 2 RT), and the iPad completely killed it in every category. I know it was kind of a not fair comparison but... I just wanted to see. I should compare scores between it and a Surface Pro 3 i7 model, but there were no S3 Pros that had been tested in their database, only the RTs
    I bet the surface 3 would be faster :P!!! if there was a surface 3 :(

    Not many people are but Android apps are not that bad. Whether they work well is a different story. Official Android apps are safe.

    How's your time in Spain going, LaRue? Nice pics so far! Sounds like you've been doing a load of walking.

    Yesterday I went to see the final Hobbit and today I'm off to Crewe.
    Barcelona has been good. I was a touch worried at first as I heard so many stories of people getting pick pocketed. They tried to get my wife but didn't get anything. They have interesting tactics.

    We've been fine ever since though and have meet some nice people and gone to some great restaurants. We've seen some great sights too, even if they were a touch touristy.

    Nice! You do recordings?
    I don't do recordings but I have recorded. Generally I prefer to hear the music I listen to in the way it was mixed / intended, which is why I'm upgrading my speakers.

    its not about security its all about how the apps with be developed. I prefer the wp ui on apps rather than on android, I don't like the android design language a lot.

    So my replacement 1520 arrived! (I had it shipped here to my work) but I can't use it yet... because I have to go to a physical AT&T store and activate a new SIM card...

    I guess I can connect to the wifi here at work though, and do all the updates and download all my apps right?

    I don't find android apps any worse than WP.

    My main point was if they work well, if you took the time to read my post properly...

    Pickpockets dislike me because when they pick my pocket, they're grabbing onto bills. I've got a policy - "you've taken a bill from my pocket, you're responsible paying for it".

    On a serious note, I'm glad they didn't get anything from the wife.
