    It will be an early lunch today I think. I'm a touch famished.

    I was supposed to be in meetings this whole week but that's not required. So it's all good. :)
    Sounds like you dodged a real bullet there...

    Looks like it's a Canada only promotion at this point...

    They cannot run this promotion in the US... AT&T will kill them, since I'm sure they're sitting on a stock of unsold 950s...

    Speaking of the Canada only promotion by MSFT, I think that you'll see a fair amount of things like this going forward for one simple reason:

    The high end market is too saturated. There is a small group of people who wield multiple devices, but since folks are holding onto devices longer, OEMs are going to really fight to get new devices into the hands of people.

    My guess is $500 is going to be the new flagship price eventually...

    Actually it wasn't all that bad. I was in the meeting first half of the morning but it wasn't really required so it's all good.

    Everyone i use my 2014 setup (Maxx/SW3), I'm reminded of how close sometimes an OEM can get and the flaws can severely hamper all the good will in the product.

    If the Maxx had the X 2015's camera, i wouldn't buy a G4. If Sony did a better job of designing the holder kit and making the metal strap more accessible, I won't have a 360 (2014) or a G Watch R.

    Good luck OEMs: your margin for error is getting smaller each year. And sometimes you hit your marks and it may not still be enough...

    Anyone who calls my phone about work on my day off pays a consultation fee...

    ...so of course, no one calls, except my supervisor when she has a brain cramp moment - so i ignore her calls.

    Clash Royale is SO frustratingly good! I'm at a point where trying to progress in the game is really, really difficult. It's like I take one step forward and two steps back... then, I'll have a winning streak and win 3 matches in a row, only to be followed by 2 losses... them I'm right back where I started!

    If 99 sees this in time, this'll go downhill really quick...

    Maybe I've gotten old and boring, but I'm only paying marvel clash of champions and asphalt 8 these days. Both of those have enough content to keep me occupied.

    Perhaps I'll look into this one too. Still say my favorite conquer the world series was Sid Meier's Civilization series. I still have the full Civ3 pack in my house, except for the disc i need to play the game, SMH...

    More importantly, i just think it's robbery with where devs have taken up the freemium model. I get it, but still...

    The thing about this feeling of not getting anywhere though, is that while it seems like you're making no progress, all of your cards are constantly, and slowly being upgraded. So the more you play, the easier the current arena level becomes.

    Of course the opponents are constantly upgrading their cards as well. The matchmaking is pretty much spot on, so it's just a matter of using the cards wisely to win...

    You should give it a shot. Give it some time, at first glance, it may not seem like much, but once it hits you and you "get it", you'll be hooked...

    It's a very simple looking game on the cover, but when you start leveling up your cards, and get to where you can join a clan (Arena 3), the many intricate nuances of the game will start to reveal themselves.

    I've got mixed feelings about Amazon local delivery.

    When I'm home, it's great. At least you're in good shape to get your stuff. The problem is when I'm not home. Sounds obvious, right?

    Here's the thing. When USPS was the major carriers, what has happened recently is they installed lockers in my apartment complex to hold oversized packages that couldn't fit in the mailbox. This helps declutter the post office and saves us the trip of having to go there for **** whenever the mailman is being lazy (or in my case, whenever there's someone subbing for my mailman as he's damn good).

    But the Amazon local stuff doesn't qualify in think for that. So it sucks.

    I bring this all up because my G4's charger is being delivered that way...so I'll most likely have to get it from my neighbor on Sunday when i head back over.

    Stuck up US problems, i know... but sometimes it sucks being an outlier in an issue...
