    So, Donald Trump is hanging around still in the US Presidential race. The longer he lingers, the more viable his campaign "appears" to be in the eyes of some voters. While I'd expect the American voter to pay attention and steer clear away from his message, the American voter is one of the most unpredictable forces on earth. At least we'll know what our fate potentially could be by the spring of next year, once both parties select their presidential nominee.

    So I did a phone interview with LinkedIn today...they wanted me to give feedback on their offerings and how that aids and or hurts job seekers' efforts in their job search.

    Very interesting indeed. Didn't get anything out of it, but it was an interesting process nonetheless...

    Every time I switch over from my IPS screen devices after long use to my AMOLED devices, my eyes really enjoys the deeper blacks of the AMOLED even more so.

    Still, I may need to reduce my on screen time to preserve my eyes...

    I saw Google launched that Pixel C thing. You know, the one thing I dislike the most on my Z3 Tablet Compact is how ****ty the multitasking is. Windows is such a champ here it's not even funny. I'd really love a dual window/multi-window support on Android tablets outside of Samsung. Until then, they make Android tablets not as useful as they could be...

    The stress at work has me sobered up nicely this days. There's no amount of alcohol I could drink that would make management's recent actions more palatable. And it is with that reason in mind, I excused myself from the "office festivities" on Thursday.

    As I like to reminder the regular lurkers and regular here, it isn't that I dislike my job, but I'm like many employees who changed jobs - dissatisfied with management. As people, and in some ways, the management at work isn't completely terrible. They just have those NSA/CIA clandestine approach to disseminating information that directly affects people's job functions whenever they either are making changes or want to make a change.

    I must say, that I'm on a stretch where I'm using more of the Z3 + 360 combo. It's been fine so far...I'm reconnecting with my Z3 and the 360 is still tolerable once I don't ask too much of it.

    Still, for just those "let's get **** done" modes, I like the Maxx + SW3 combo better.

    Marshmallow is incoming for Sprint and Verizon users on the MXPE. I saw some people on AT&T/T-Mobile who got it by turning off their devices, pulling their SIM and rebooting, but no luck for me.

    Well there's that Chuwi thing with both Android and Windows preinstalled. Kit Kat and 8.1 i think but it is Windows 10 ready.

    And it's really cheap, around 150$.
