    The more reviews I read about the 950XL, the more lukewarm I get about it...

    Wow.. I totally "need" this sound card! It's got a separate "daughter card" to handle input and recording. Also has a 600 Ohm headphone amp and the whole nine yards..

    There is an old saying that's the epitome of my afternoon at work so far:

    "Too many cooks spoil the broth".

    This is also making the side of my face hurt more just watching and seeing it happen...

    Here in the USA it is on ABC and we watch it on demand about 2 weeks behind so no ads....gets done in 40 minutes versus 1 hour. Priyanka Chopra is a big name back in India...

    My problem with this show so far is it's now getting to a point where I feel like it's starting to drag a little bit. Otherwise pretty interesting.

    I'm waffling on the idea of getting a 950xl in the same way that some of these US presidential candidates are waffling on their positions on the key election issues...

    Yeah, I think they slowed down the pace a bit in the second half of the season. I am guessing they are trying to build up for the big finale. Since we are only one show behind, started catching up on Suits...3 more episodes to catch up for Season 5.

    Well that just makes a swell politician albeit a lot more tech savvy than the current crop of candidates....now don't try to school Justin Trudeau on what Quantum Computing is though!

    (Huge spoiler alert!)

    They could have ended it from the moment that the bomb exploded by grand Central again and shove everything that's happened afterwards into season 2, or after the star agreed to turn coat they could have ended the season there. That's the thing I like with homeland. 10 episodes a season, fast paced enough to get to the point and yet keeps the side stories interesting.

    Funny.

    All jokes aside though, I think the XL is a "nice phone". Lacks the wow that I feel when I see a G5 or HTC 10 - and this has nothing to do with the OS itself. It's a good phone but lacks personality. Hell, even the 650 I've seen and go " Hmmm...I like this."

    I have to agree. It looks like a stealth mode phone specifically in black. That is why I am getting a white one. Hopefully it will be here before my weekend trip to the Bay Area.

    Honestly, the 950 line feels like they took the 640 design and just updated the internal specs. I know you like the 640 and I will confess that the first time I saw the 950, on the front side it looked like a 640.

    I'm not completely cynical...more skeptical than anything else in my current work "environment".

    It's similar to the 640, I'll give you that....but only in the front. On the back it's quite different. The 650 is nice!

    Just some pics again. I haven't been taking too many photos in the last few months so it's been nice to dusty off the camera again.

    So switched carries and I'm a lot happier. I actually have a signal at my desk and even data! It's all good.

    I also don't lose signal any more when driving back and forth to work. :)
