    I am thinking of switching over to the Xiaomi Mi Note Bamboo Edition for the next couple of weeks so that I can try out the Build 10136 on my Lumia 830. I don't know if it is a wise idea or not but will mull over it for the next couple of days...
    I could have lived with that bloody build had Wi-Fi hotspot is not broken.

    I'm glad I only need to go to the BMV office once every four years for a new driver license.

    I order my registration (plates or sticker) online.

    Here, it is called LTO for land transportation office. It's one of the most corrupt government agency. License plates take at least 6 months to get released. I renewed my license and the card will take 5 months to be released.

    Here it takes about a month to get registration if ordered online.

    License is given on the spot if you go to the office.

    I think I found something. It is really hit or miss...some brands that I've found worked well with one phone are sometimes crappy with others. I suppose that's by design...that way accessories makers stay in business...

    So I've decided to make more use of my Qi charger. I ordered a universal Qi adapter which I plan to attach to my new spare phone when it arrives. If I do score a 360, that'll be good news for my charger too.

    I need to start cutting down on tne cables around the house and this is the way to start.

    I try not to take on too many first world problems, simply because of where I grew up. Sometimes to talk to my uncle as his current struggles helps keep me grounded in my own roots. We can too easily get caught up in first world glitz and glamour elements and miss the real humanity of things at times...

    I have two Nokia Qi chargers. They work great with my Nexus 7 tablet.

    So driver's licence.

    In Ontario (don't know about the rest of the country) you get it immediately when you pass your test. Then to renew it you can go to a kiosk if you don't need a new picture. Though for all I know they might have added a camera to that thing.

    In Australia, you get it immediately on passing the test. They just changed to a new smart card version in Queensland so I don't know how things have changed.

    Here in the EU (including UK) you get your licence immediately and you have it until your 70. At that age you then need to renew to see if you can still drive.

    Ignorance, there is a cure.

    As for Qi charging, probably the other bit that Sony missed with the Z3.

    I wish they had either brought out a case that was nice for it or have it built in. The case they have doesn't really look that great.

    I need to buy a new magnetic charger for mine. I hate opening the flap all the time. The one I currently have is too painful to use.

    Hmm not sure about the Ontario one any more. It appears you can do it online like Australia (I just remembered) and you only need a new picture every 10 years.

    Yes. It's taken when you get the licence.

    Does a new picture ever need to be taken? Obviously one would not look the same at 30 as he or she would at 18. I cannot see one using the same picture from 18 years of age to 70 years of age.

    It's the same picture from when you got your licence. No renewal necessary. I though it was weird too but that's the way it is.

    That is weird!

    That reminds me of pictures in the local newspaper obituaries. A decedent in his/her 80s has his/her high school graduation picture published. Nobody will know the person by that 60+ year old picture.
