    Morning folks. Another day at the funny farm. Looking to tweak my workshop sessions again today. It's not every day you get to do a workshop in a moving boathouse, so I should be looking forward to doing this in the boondocks of Manhattan tomorrow...(yes Upper Manhattan has the boonies)

    I know everyone has their opinion but i just find it hard to read whenever people use something and keep bashing it all the time.

    Complaining is one of the most annoying human habits ever, to me. Fix what you can fix and work around what you cannot change. I'm fine with venting but ******** about something at every opportunity is in fact complaining. It's annoying to read and annoying to hear. I have colleagues at work who complain about every little thing and i swear, I'd rather go in a dark room and actively watch paint dry by candlelight.

    The paint on my walls take 2 hours to dry. Just enough time for a good meditation session.... :D

    Agree about the continuous bashing...

    My Pi day purchase arrived yesterday. Whoa, this is a nice device, except the location of the camera which I knew about prior to the purchase, no complaints. This is a slick laptop. Very happy with the purchase.

    I'm looking forward to playing with the G5 in stores. As much as i like the feel of the G4, if i were buying today and had the cash, i may have gone for the G5 in silver and paired it with my Moto 360, which is now with the titanium-silver look.

    I still question the modules - not that they're a bad idea but has a Gen one setup in skeptical - and frankly i don't think it'll sell...the G4 sold OK last year as good as it was. Still, the G5 is interesting enough to me where perhaps if i was in a different place I'd take a flyer on it.

    Maybe i have a thing for metal but I'd also try a M9 as a backup to the G5 under that scenario. I won't do that now because i have a Windows M8 that fills my HTC + Windows itch and my Maxx isn't going anywhere.

    Still, i think the M9 was good enough - not as bad as they made it out to be.

    I'm looking forward for the HTC W10. It looks like it's going to be a good looking device

    You mean knock off launchers? I'm better off sticking with crap droid usual look. Home screen launchers for Windows 10 are horrible on Android.

    I dislike launchers anyway. They take up space and ram

    Why not use the launcher that MSFT garage team made?

    It looks nothing like W10 for starters. I personally don't like it but that's me.

    Don't think HTC will make a Windows version of the "M10". Still plan to play with it in stores anyways.

    Interesting how i can now get a brand new G4 for $350 included shipping. Oh, the temptation...

    Looks like I missed nothing here...

    This is the part where I'd normally talk about a patient who disclosed to me how she was "getting to home plate" with her boyfriend (that's for you Sahib) in a car and the cops interrupted their fine activities, but tiredness and HIPAA preclude me from going into further details...

    I'm just say, it has been fun using my titanium-silver looking 360 (2014). Indo have some scuff marks already near the clasp, but overall I'm pleased. It makes me yearn for the Sony stainless steel strap, but I'm not paying between $150-$180 for it. Don't feel like giving away any more money tomsupport any more half *** support. I like Sony but I'm on a "say no to half *** efforts by OEMs" kick...

    Totally understand your point about launchers.

    If you are interested there is this - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...r.wp.ten&hl=en

    It's actually not that bad. It's not W10 but it's decent.

    Personally I have no issues with Android's interface but then I'm a 'utility' type person. I can care less about live tiles or what things look like. I just want the ability to do what I want. That's more important to me than looks. That's why Android suits me currently.
    I like function over form too these days. Anything that's too visually flashy without much substance behind it is most likely too high maintenance and not always worth it. Had a few exes like that too...

    So how I work with colleagues who are stubborn and act like they know it all?

    I ignore them and leave them to their own devices. I'm getting good at this now, since I have a ton of practice these days...
