    So I'm on this "I Abhor (a nod to Rue & 99 with this word) MGMT" kick at work that i don't think is going away any time soon.

    There's some team meeting tomorrow where the CFO has invited himself to, along with the head of the social work department. Essentially it is a non medical meeting comprising of health educators (such as myself) and the social workers we work with closely. Those social workers direct clinical supervisor (who's a psychologist) will be present. He's cool and i have no beef with him, nor do i have any beef with the social workers' overall supervisor. The CFO in a meeting always is never a good thing and I've learned to manage him well from a distance - still, I'm not fond of him. And the regulars here know how i feel about my current supervisor on a professional level (a hint - she's less than useless). I think my supervisor has an idea I'm not fond of her because i don't hide the terseness in my voice whenever we speak. So my supervisor decided to turn this meeting into a potluck, and I've decided not to bring any food as a sign of silent protest. Two of the social workers aren't pleased with my choice but that's life.

    This is why I'm looking forward to the time off from work next week as I'll be able to start solving my work issues and finishing up my school assignments without the distraction of the commute.

    Folks always do what you can the best way possible, so that way whenever you choose to walk away from something you've got no regrets. That's where I'm at with work these days quite frankly...

    Someone put Marshmallow on their Z3. If you want the instructions I can send those to you via email.
    Thanks, but I'm not in a rush - so I'll wait. I actually would prefer to get 6.0 on my Maxx first because it'll fix the nasty battery bug from 5.0.2 which makes off the charts battery life only pretty good. Apparently, Moto is skipping 5.1 with the Maxx, like it did when it skipped 5.0 and 5.0.1 wlto jump from 4.4.4.

    Talk about the cart before the horse. The Adopted case and tempered glass screen protector are here. Meanwhile I am still waiting for the Nexus 5X to show up.
    I can list about 10 people off the top off the top of my head based on how they operate who constantly put the cart before the horse, and for them that is NOT a good thing...

    Cool. I do hope the battery life improves for both your devices with Marshmallow.

    Gsmarena has a very nice and balanced review of the 950. They're one of the few sites i know that call it as it is...and often call out the fruit stand for how expensive their stuff is.

    Yes, i do like the 950. And honestly, i could see myself replacing my Z3 with it. But Lord, that thing is overpriced like nobody's business. So I'll wait...especially if they do the Surface phone, these new Lumias could be had on sale for even better deals. As it stands, i have wouldn't touch them. Maybe last year if these were launched then, I'd be inclined to use the 950 as a daily driver, but i don't care for ****ty battery like these days.

    MSFT, WTF with the slow camera app? Haven't we gone through this **** before?

    I'm very happy with the N5 so it will be interesting to see how the 5X turns out. Still no word from the rep at the MSFT store so no new Lumia yet. I sold the 6+ so the funds are available....

    I hope so too. It's why me getting a 950 now is just not a true compliment with any of these devices...these were some of the best 2014 models that run very well still in 2015. High end market is too saturated to justifying spending an arm and a leg on a new phone.

    I don't blame you if you passed on the XL and 950 for now either. They're nice, but not "knock your socks off, I've gotta have them" type nice.

    On Reddit someone mentioned that the current version only supports Japanese bands. But based on the huge amount of international interest they are planning to bring a version that supports international bands out later in 2016. Also they will be showing off the phone at CES2016 in Las Vegas.
    I'm not sure what Japanese bands are in use now, but the NuAns website clearly shows it has LTE Bands 1 and 3 which is used in the Philippines.

    I actually read it... Can't blame the guy. As for me, no single platform is perfect but sadly iOS covers my bases even though my 6 hangs once in a while, mostly on mobile settings, which has not improved since 5s.

    Have you tried SwiftKey? I have a friend who uses it on his iPhone. He seems to like it.

    I tried Swype and SwiftKey on Android, and I found that I like SwiftKey better.

    Microsoft really needs to put WordFlow on small tablets. My 7" Windows tablet is in a drawer, since I can't type on it. 😞

    So it sounds more limited than WhatsApp, since WhatsApp doesn't cost more money to contact people in other countries.

    Just got done syncing the Music folder on my laptop with OneDrive. Now thanks to T-Mobile's Music Freedom, I can stream my collection from the cloud via Groove Music without eating up my data. Oh and for places where the signal is crap, the music is also on an SD card which is in the spare Lumia 640 which does double duty as a music player.
