    I must admit that MSFT's 950 line are growing on me a bit more. Their current prices aren't though. Amazing they're still so expensive...

    I see Jason Ward is on another good writing spell. I'm very interested to see where the market goes within the next few years.

    I don't think Google will have as much adjust to changes as Apple will...due to bring victims of their own success.

    Not to get overly political, but I was reading an op-ed poll in the NY Times talking about the tough job that both US party nominees will have of unifying their parties in the fall. With it looking like Trump v Hillary, it'll be an interesting train wreck either way...

    Still, both parties should be worried. Voter turnout in 2012 was very bad...I don't think it'll be better this year. These candidates appear to be very tone deaf to the needs of certain important groups who may chose to just stay home come election day.

    That's a recipe for disaster...

    Looks like all 3 are jumping onto the idea of better device integration. Some days I wish I was in one platform where I could go from phone to tablet to desktop and work more seamlessly.

    You can argue that from the Android side since the S800 chips (outside of the S810), hardware is good enough for even past the two year support cycle. But OEMs and Google won't do that...

    So I went to get an icee at my transfer point and I saw some other dude selling them. I was about to get one, and I decided to pass. Gonna see if the old man is gone or this cat just lucked out on the spot by watching the situation over the next few weeks...

    In my line of work, I'm definitely concerned if Trump gets in there as he may cut more funding for social programs. Now I'm not unopposed to funding cuts because there is some waste in the system...but with how they system is set up, more of the good programs lose funding than the ****ty ones getting closed.

    I've got every right to be mad at Hillary on this one - after all, her husband laid the groundwork for the current system in 1996.

    That is the most interesting article he's written so far. I think the cloud will be the most important factor, so the battle will be between Microsoft and Google. Apple will be the also-ran, unless it improves iCloud.

    I wonder if any of these candidates have the foreign policy chops to work with our allies appropriately abroad. While some folks like to talk tough on bringing jobs back to America, it is scary how many of the staples of American life that's imported...

    Apple will stick around as they always have ever since because they will do what they always do...cater to a niche market. I was seeing something where if Google has their way, there will be worldwide Wifi access...

    So I like the read leather back on the G4. It is as slippery feeling as I feared, but it's a great change of pace look.

    I still feel the sky blue is really nice and may get one eventually. Will probably pair my 360 with the G4. I still want to get a Sony metal strap for the SW3, but no one is budging off their price on eBay ($150 is the cheapest I see so far)...

    If they do that, you want to tag team? I can take the 950 if you want the XL...

    In my defense, there will be some pizza and beer involved, so it's not all completely for a loss. If I get lucky going home, I'll get a Coconut icee too.

    Dropped my shiny new 950 on the treadmill whilst running at the gym. It shot off to the other side if the room.

    Not a scratch on the phone or my Mozo case.

    *phew*
    I always put my phone on the water cup holder the treadmill has :p
