    As reading the flagships I found myself not so interested about them . Not because they aren't cool but I'm more of a mid range phone type of person . I really hope the 850 comes to be cheaper than the 830 when it came out

    Folding keyboard and Surface Arc mouse working with my 636. ALT-TAB works already, all I need is to project to a bigger screen.

    All jokes aside though, I really hope MSFT has a strong showing. Interesting that the two kings of enterprise - RIM and MSFT - are launching new phones. I'm very curious to see the Venice (Priv) and how well it fares. I think it may follow the passport and get lots of buzz, but not sure about it's impact.

    As for MSFT and their 950, I think it'll energize some of the fanbase, but I really don't know if I saw enough yesterday that will pull in new folks outside the platform. No offense but this is Gen 1 Windows 10 hardware. Maybe MSFT could go radical and kill the high-end Lumia line next year and offer the top end specs in a surface phone and use the Lumia for mid range and low end models...

    2015 and the influence of privilege is alive and well.

    So I went to see our in-house IT chief today at work. We've got an app on iOS and Android we're promoting to youth as a way to stay connected to the Center and I have a group of HS sophomores (AKA 10th graders) coming in for a tour of the facility. I walk into her office and I see she's going the vertical desk movement. She's elevated her working station and was running on an elliptical barefoot as we spoke. She is doing this to ensure she's getting enough movement in her day at work. I joke with her to state I wish I could go vertical and she laughed, stating it is hard to do since I see patients.

    I walked away from her office and I was reminded...I don't need to go vertical to ensure I'm moving at work. I have to physically get up out of my office, get patients, have them sit in my office and then escort the back to the waiting area at the end of my sessions. This doesnt include when I have to go searching for missing patients. Add my commute in which I can do 3000 steps easily ONE WAY. I coast each work day and do 9000 steps and if I run errands afterwards, 11000 -14000 steps is easily attained for me. And this is the Sony SWR10 being notoriously conservative/inaccurate in its estimates.

    Why is this privilege? Without bringing ethnicity into it, here is a woman easily doubling my salary who has to go vertical to ensure she is moving in her work day. Meanwhile, I've got tons of movement in my day with little income to show for it...

    Today apparently is a good day for updates. One of our favorite mods is running marshmallow 6.0, and I just picked up the stage fright update for both my Z3 and the Z3 Tablet Compact.

    Approved by Z3 Tablet Compact!

    I thought they will be announced, but no problem about waiting a few more months.

    This is what I posted on G+ today. While I'm not being a Sony apologist, they have really done well updates wise with the entire Z series line.

    "Sony Xperia, I give you credit for the level of software support you've provided for the Z line since its launch. While we can argue the speediness of your software updates, you've managed to update the whole line for the past two years.

    I am a Z3 + Z3 Tablet Compact owner. I have also owned phones abandoned by carriers within 4 months of being on sale. While the original Z and Z1 series owners are miffed as to why they may not get marshmallow, there are similar flagship lines who will never see 5.1.1 lollipop, even though their hardware can run the update.

    If it means you can redirect resources to better manage other product lines, I'm fine with ending the Z and Z1 series at 5.1.1, provided they still get any critical security updates.

    I hope that you're able to still provide the same length of support to the newer Z series models, even if you don't have a great sales year next year and are forced to switch strategy (which may include curtailing your portfolio)."

    I gave a tour to some rich young patients and have to talk to graduate level interns and externs (social work, psychology) in a little while. I should be excited walking into a room with a female pelvic model to do demos, but I'm kinda not in the mood to be excited about vaginas today...

    Coloud Mini Review
    Packaging - 8/10. Looks awesome but difficult to put the contents back in the package together.
    Looks/Construction - 8.5/10 - They look amazing. The color, the material selection, the 3.5mm jack construction, the mic placement and construction are top notch. The idea of a metallic hinge that pulls down to engage the ear pieces with the over the head piece is pretty nifty.
    Sound - 8.5/10 - The sound from these headphones is amazing. I tried out my HTC, Scosche, Apple and one other pair side by side with the Coloud and they beat every single other headphone over a variety of music genres.
    Ergonomics - 0/10. The headpiece is too tight and consequently the ear pieces are also too tight on the ears. I got a splitting headache after about an hour with these headphones. My ears also ache after two days from the crushing force of the headset on the ears.

    Consequently they had to go back. My search for good over the ear headphones continues...

    Nice tech article in the New Yorker, I usually read it for other stuff but this one caught my eye.
    Satya Nadella and Microsoft?s Very Good Day - The New Yorker

    Best quote from the keynote:
    Panos Panay, asked. “What do you do? Do you double down? Do you bring the thunder? Or do you reinvent the category again? I’ll tell you what we chose.”

    This is getting hilarious in how people are throwing Moto under the bus because they aren't updating the 2013 X and the 2014 and 2015 Moto E.

    Apparently, this is the first time any company ever drew a line in the sand and dropped phones they didn't want to update. I suppose Moto ade the effort over the past two years to go stock and tried updating their products quickly, but the truth of the matter is...

    All sales compnaies try to pull on our emotions to keep their hands our pockets to buy their stuff. Apple does the same. The only difference is Moto's product isn't as "good" as Apple's right now.

    Cry me a river. I should be more understanding...

    But cry me a river.
