    I always try to have some sort of coffee on hand for just such situations.
    lol yes, I do too, it's just on the occasion that we'll forget we're out, then wake up in the morning like "ugghh"...

    Should've had Siri or Cortana set a "buy coffee" reminder! lol

    That's odd. Mine finds the driver just fine. The issue is that it resets to default every time you restart the PC. Very annoying. I'm not a huge fan of gestures.
    Neither am I, but some two finger swipes come in handy for Win10 functions. That and the track pad just works better with everything set up correctly. (Basic mouse speed etc) Not a big issue for me priority-wise, as I don't really use this laptop for much other than the "server" role it plays on my home network. Yeah, it's really just an extra storage location. This is one of the largest laptops on the market (it's got an 18.6" screen!) so I rarely pick it up and move it... It's more like a desktop PC shaped like a laptop! lol

    Correction: it's got an 18.4" screen. This is the laptop I have here:

    Toshiba Satellite P505D-S8930 review - CNET

    And Cnet's review on it is spot on. The battery sucks! Even worse in my case, as it's a few years old. It stays plugged in... And the processor.... Mediocre but it works.

    Still no responses in my http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...ripherals.html thread. I guess there's not really many PC gamers here on the site. Kinda discourages me from posting my video card review that I'm working on.

    So Laura finds her in a Thor (Jane Foster) getup with "Ban hammer" scary, yet her current avatar has two lightsabers in it?

    What's so less scary about two lightsabers?

    MIA thanks for the heads up regarding the update. No sign of it yet.
    No problem.

    No sign of it yet either for me. While Sony is slow as molasses with this 6.0.1 rollout, they're still doing a better job than "Moto"...

    Morning folks. I'm at the funny farm and I'm half asleep. Not sure if Ed's coffee will wake me up, but I cannot have a shot of gin because if I do, I may get wide awake and something unkind might slip out of my mouth.

    Sometimes being "wide awake" is very problematic...

    You know, it's really hard to find a phone with a good camera and battery life these days.

    I've always had great respect for the Lumia line in the camera department. But, there some seriously good cameras out there now. Even Apple isn't immune anymore with how the likes of Samsung, LG and even Huawei (6P and apparently the P9) have raised their game camera tech wise.

    I guess I've always wanted to go down to two devices...1 Android and 1 Windows phone. Looks like the XL is my only choice if I made such a move...and honestly, that makes me sad. I enjoy my G4 and if this camera was on my Maxx, I'd be set. It just seems (not interested in Samsung) it is hard to find both for what I want these days...

    Approved by Z3 Tablet Compact!
    If I was into larger phones, the only two that would do the trick for me here would be the 6P and the X 2015. With my current "Moto"/experience, I'd probably pick the 6P instead.

    The 6p is a honkin huge phone! Makes my 830 look tiny

    All this phones are midgets compared to my old Z Ultra...and I was using that before Android wear.

    Truth be told, if size wasn't the issue and I only wanted two phones, I'd get a silver 64GB 6P and a white 950XL (with a 128GB memory card). The 6P battery size wise sits right in-between the G4's 3000mah and the Maxx's 3900mah.

    But how knows what I'll do. I do like the G4 and my M8. I know if I wanted to get a 950XL and go down to two phones, I'd certainly keep the Maxx over the G4.

    Having sampled both devices, my recommendation would be a 6P as well.
