    So I had some buyer's remorse. I ordered a pair of Bluetooth headphones for the Z3...some sweat proof joints aimed at keeping my Z3 on my bag during my commute.

    When I got them today, I instantly didn't like them. So I dug up my old Sony SBH-20, and I'm using those instead with my Marley's. I'll sell the other ones I just bought (unused) to my friend...

    Today was a nicely productive lazy day. Laundry, some house cleaning, a post office run. Now it is off to get the Afro lined up and then to the GF's.

    Still need to figure out what to get her out of the house to do...

    Agreed. I'm looking forward to seeing the G4 in person, especially that leather back. I liked the G3. Very impressed, outside of the looks of the UI.

    I am probably going to get one just for grins and giggles...

    How about going to the fruit stand and checking out the Apple watch?

    She wants a Note 5. She said "No" to the fruit and I love her for that, amongst other things of course...

    So it looks like I bought the right converter box. The TV in the GF's living room works great with her Chromecast now. She was all smiles.

    This tells me that this is the same box I need to get for when I go Hulu + Amazon Prime. Since she has Netflix, we have all bases covered. I still need to see where I can get live sports, but the cable needs to go man. $190/month for the package above basic? Ridiculous.

    That's their triple play of cable + phone + internet. So I'm gonna drop the bundle and keep the internet only, which will get the bill under $100 easily.

    They always find a way to rob Apple users. You see the prices for those keyboards? Outrageous.

    The price is crazy, but they have the supply chain down to a science. I'm still waiting for the adapter from Sony. With Apple this never happens. You see how they do business in that regard I really respect.

    If they're gonna keep their hands in your put they make it easy to do so with availability.

    The watch craze is interesting. I do like my smart watch and I use it like my other timepiece at home...wear it outside and turn it off when I get home. I think it is how you check your watch for and how you handle your notifications. I think smart wear is a good idea, but I'm curious to see how it evolves.

    Tim Cook was an Ops guy and so I'm not surprised they have their supply chain stuff sorted out.

    Neither am I. That's the thing that sadly some companies don't get. I suppose that's also why you see Samsung copy some of Apple's approaches. The truth is everybody makes good products. Customer service is the great equalizer... that's the premium Apple is successfully able to charge for.

    That sounded good. I used some coconut Ciroc instead of white wine. Will use the white wine next time. I used a lot of lemons in the fish...GF liked that.
