    That's apparently what MS has stated. However, some people's upgrade started when they were in the middle of something apparently. That doesn't sound right.

    MS is still being aggressive with W10 calling it a 'recommended' upgrade.
    Well, they managed to make that one thing from Windows phone universal...breaking stuff and saying "we're working on it"...

    Moto X pure is down 100$ IF you want to check it out.
    We are usually looking for discounts deeper than that😀

    There was a better deal to be had where you can get the plain Jane plastic backed 32GB model for $350. If i were to have gotten an X 2015, that's what I'd buy it at.

    But I'll pass and still try to get a G4 instead. Since I'm not selling the Maxx, i don't usually like to have two phones from the same OEM in my house...

    Patient you must be and G4 you shall have!

    This is why I'm glad my desktop cannot be upgraded to Windows 10 (driver issues) and i refuse to update my T100. What i have in 8.1 works just fine for me.

    Well it's 25% off and if it was available in EU for 360 it would have been a great deal. :)

    You know, if there's one function I would like in this forum is the ability to disconnect from a thread you posted on if you've decided to stop interacting with it.

    That would make life a lot more pleasant.

    Apparently the issues I'm experiencing with the NAS is due to the increase security that MS has happily supplied.

    Nothing against security but when it stops you from doing stuff and is a pain to fix it's no longer useful...

    It runs fine on the GF's machine so far, then again, i don't use her PC much. I prefer 8.1, but may upgrade to 10 on the T100 eventually. Just not right now.

    I'm not a fan of software companies doing incomplete OSes and then go "we're working on it".

    Also not a fan of software companies stating we'll do timely updates and then don't deliver. Either don't say promises you cannot keep, or pump out the updates on time. HTC has gotten much better at this, LG is decent at this, Samsung takes their time and Moto still does cluster**** things with this.

    Got off the phone with T-Mobile a couple of minutes ago. I now have the ASUS router coming to me. My modem arrives tomorrow and the router should be here shortly. This is going to be awesome!

    Good move. It's a nice setup, so I think you'll like it. Info like their loaner program with the router, although I'm curious what the outright price is to buy it. I still have the box so I can return it to them free of charge.

    I'm very happy with mine.

    Actually the biggest issue on the GF's machine is the LAN drivers are as helpful as my supervisor at work. It is hit or miss with her getting online with the physical ethernet cord ever since I went to Windows 10 and you have all the other devices working fine wirelessly. She's got to reset the router for it to work. I should investigate this some more though...

    Funny moments today...

    So I'm walking in a supermarket in Manhattan trying to score one of those 1.5 litre bottles of spring water for under $2 (paid $1.69). I'm knee deep in a conversation on Hangouts and I'm replying via my G Watch R while strolling through the pasta aisle. This guy turns around and looks at me quizzically as my voice apparently is traveling loudly.

    Me (without missing a beat): "don't mind me, I'm just on my watch."

    He turns away and keeps walking...

    A bank teller showed me his Apple Watch. Surprisingly I was the only customer, so he had time to show it to me. He has a Mickey Mouse watch face. I thought it looked nice, but it's too expensive for me to get.

    Dumb **** moment of the day:

    So I'm in a Chipotle after my water search in the supermarket and there's this white middle aged make in a suit placing an order before me. How he's ordering, seems to be a regular there. Ho-hum, I don't care at this point. So he leaves and the girls at the cashier - one appears to be African-American, the other Hispanic, both seems to be mid 20s, are talking.

    So old wise-*** is a regular and make the following comment supposedly in jest a few moments earlier: "you know you guys should change the name of the place...to Stripotle."

    So the Hispanic girl was like "I'm sorry, I missed the joke". Her colleague was like, "I never laugh at his wisecracks whenever he's in here."

    And I'm in my in head going: yup, middle aged white men in suits...making sexist jokes at women of color since the 1500s...

    He must have been really bored. I played with one in the store and I still think they made the UI more cumbersome than it needed to be. I still prefer Android Wear or even the Microsoft Band's set up of how quicker and easier it is to get to what I want without being as obtrusive. Design wise, Apple nailed it though...

    Second funny moment - I was late to my doctor's appointment because I thought my discharge papers from the hospital fell out in the street/subway. Even went back one stop to try to find them, only to see them resting comfortably on the bed when I returned home. And of course my PMD didn't even need them, he took one glance of my meds and went, "ah, they gave you some stronger stuff - keep me posted on your progress, go easy for the next two weeks."

    Good thing about my ordeal was i picked two good weeks to get sick and recover weather wise. Last week it was tremendous - high 60s - this week it's mid 50s. That means less stress on weaker lungs, so I'll have time to heal. Yes, had some lung issues as the ailment.

    Well, my tiny mailbox should be a hot mess to clear on Thursday when I get back to my apartment. Gotta pay some bills, so as always, that's exciting to do...

    Looking forward to watering my plant and switching watches to my 360 so I can get the metal links adjusted. Wanted to do some heavy cleaning, but will have to wait.

    So my youngest son's birthday is this week. He turns 15 (my oldest kid is 21). I want to get him something nice for his birthday. I was thinking of getting him one of these electric guitar starter packages like this one Squier Affinity Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pack w/ 10G Amplifier Brown Sunburst | Guitar Center

    But I can't tell if he's interested at all! He's into video games, mainly on his Wii U (Mario, Super Smash Bros., etc) and Pokemon on his 3DS. He's also a big Star Wars fan blah blah..

    I took him up to guitar center to look around, and he seemed uninspired by it all. He kept asking "are you ready to go dad?" lol I don't want to try to force an instrument on him, or get him something that'll just be something else in his closet that he never uses...

    I don't know what to do! Ughh...
    I'd buy it for him anyway. Can't know if he has any talent if he never tries.

    Personally, I've always wanted to learn to play eletricguitar. But guess what, my dad would never let me. He insisted on going to learn some traditional Bosnian instruments, such as accordion and saz. I had no interest or whatsoever, so I never learnd to play any instrument.
    I'm 18 now, and, well, it might be a bit too late, but I'm keen in learning it. So one day, whether it is in 5, 10, 20 years from now, I'll learn to play that god damn guitar.

    So it would appear that some people are complaining that they're being 'forced' to upgrade to W10. Seemingly out of the blue.

    Though I find this hard to believe I wouldn't be surprised if it was happening. :P
    I'm still on Win7, have no plans in upgrading for a while. But it is true that they're more than the pain in the *** about this upgrade. I'm getting at least 2 messages a day, telling me how Win10 is better, bla bla, and that I should upgrade. It's really annoying.

    I've read some articles about people who hadn't had unlimited internet, and had already upgraded, and were forced to update their Windows 10 without them even knowing, which bumped their internet bill.

    I'm still amazed at how some people are at times. In situations when humility, grace, class and respect are necessary, you've always get this dumbass who rides in and manages to make the situation worse.
