    Morning folks. Looks like it is a hotbed of activity in here.

    I'm glad the semester is done but I'm still exhausted. New challenges await ahead...

    So I feel like binge posting on the way to work, after removing the WPC app from my phone for the past few weeks. So here goes...

    Been skimming some reviews for the iWatch so far. Looks interesting for a gen 1, but nothing compelling over the current Android offerings. I saw an iwatch ad over the weekend and it was funny to me how they were pitching it.

    I'm sure it'll sell...one of the attending physicians at work who is a runner preordered one and has to wait s while to get it (he naturally went for the cheapest one, like most). Apple is still schooling Sony on how to make people buy their own watch bands. Lol.

    Speaking of Sony, I like my SWR50 so far. Battery life for my usage...I charge it every two or so days. As a notifications manager, it is awesome. I like the transflective screen, as it is perfect for reading it direct sunlight.

    My quirks with it are:

    1) Not a fan of the mic being at the top of the phone. The G Watch has it at the bottom and for a slightly softer speaker like me, that makes the voice recognition a bit more hit and miss. The G watch was more accurate in that regard.

    2) Sony needs to sell the adapter so I can chuck the strap. Now the strap itself is comfortable to wear but already looks worn down and tacky looking.

    3) Like having the microUSB port but it is an asspain to use for charging.

    Otherwise, it is an upgrade over the G watch in the areas that count for me...better battery life, easier to charge, improved sunlight visibility.

    Like the way Sony has done 5.0.2 but still not willing to update my Z3 to it just yet. I still feel so so about lollipop anyways.

    So far so good. I'm liking the more recent update. The phone is a lot smoother and the battery life seems better.

    I'm still liking the look of the LG Urbane. The only things I have against it is the price at the moment and the simple fact of not needing a smartwatch.

    Other than that it's not a bad looking watch and would suit me. :)

    Really like the Z3 TC.

    Lightweight, powerful and really fun to use. For my needs, it is a verybsokid purchase and I do charge it every other day, as opposed to the nightly charging for the N7. My quirks are:

    1) Not a fan of how Xperia link is done. Apple's continuity idea is executed much better.

    2) Sony should have put Qi in this thing. No excuses.

    All in all, a solid device. Too pricey to buy brand new but at the price point I paid for mine, a very good deal.

    I like it on the Z3 TC. Just not interested in it on the Z3 proper. May just jump to 5.1 instead.

    Hands down, LG has made the best Gen 1 Android wear watches in terms of balancing style and function. Even the G Watch is a very good starter watch at the right price. I like the look of the Ubrane, but would get a G Watch R over it. I went with the SWR50 because of the better screen in direct sunlight, WiFi being easier to turn on, NFC in place, and a few other things, but LG has done a great job so far with its offerings.

    Overall, I'm satisfied with the Z3. I won't say that it is the best phone I've owned, but it is in the top 10. And I like the green silver hue, even though I don't show it off a lot.

    Quirks:

    1) No Qi. Seriously Sony. No excuses.

    2) Should have had 32GB internal.

    3) Should have tweaked the camera more with updates.

    4) Should have adveritized the phone better to get sales.

    I'd recommend it, but I do like the M9 and importantly, the G4.

    MSFT looks like they're using Nokia's old playbook with a phone at seemingly every price point. Haven't we seen this movie before?

    So I've been talking about getting a newer car for some time and I was debating what to get.

    Well that's all finished now. We're now the proud owners of a black BMW 320i SE, full leather.

    We saw a car last night online. Wife phoned them this morning to have a look. We now own it. Funny how things happen like that. :P

    I'll put a picture up when I can. They already took the ad down.

    I get what they're doing, but it does put some serious pressure on the flagship. They cannot afford for that to be a flop.

    Yes, it is a quality device indeed. I use the waterproofing a fair amount too. But I really like the G4 and M9. I won't buy either, but they impress me more than the S6. Samsung has made non plastic phones before so I'm not surprised about the quality of the S6. I just don't like certain things about it.

    I think they've given scope for the flagship, Continuum is one point but I often wonder if that's 'good' enough. Also it might discourage businesses from adopting W10 phones because most businesses don't buy flagships so I'm curious how that's going to go down. Continuum would be a great product for business. I don't see it as a laptop replacement entirely but it would be a good tool.

    It's a bit of a minefield which is the issue with having all these low/mid range phones.

    May I suggest "The Residence" on Etihad?

    Or a hot shower on Emirates

    Oh wow that's luxury for you . I sometimes wonder how they are able to fit that in a plane . I knew planes were big but wow
