    You should definetely take a nap. I slept for less than 2 hours yesterday sometimes in afternoon, and man what a change it is, like a mid-day rebirth.

    Here you go. Motorhead is also on the list.

    In that, they're using "new wave" as an adjective describing the new wave of British metal. Not "New Wave" as in the genre. When I hear someone say "New Wave", back in our time (Rue's and mine) "New Wave" meant Flock of Seagulls, Tears for Fears, and Duran Duran type stuff.

    But yeah, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest and those old school heavy metal bands have been around for a long time, so these days, they'd be refered to as "classic heavy metal". At least by us older bunch...

    Hip hop instrumental? I'm really curious to hear an example of this.
    Maybe my terminology isn't good, but when i say instrumental i think about music which you hear without vocals.
    Example:

    Do I need to go any further?
    Lol, I still find this is more pop music than anythithing else,which is to be fair in mostly sorry state right now. Maybe it just feels so bad because it's one the language you speak. But I agree it's stupid, but than again, how about this from 90s? 😁

    Well, now the hard part is to set everything back up...

    G4 Approved
    So far with this update...

    Now that it's a few days in and the battery is starting to settle, here's the short summary...

    The phone runs better battery wise. I still think that this was like the Xperia Z3, where Android 4.4.4 was the best OS version for it. Right now I'm on 36% with 4h 17min screen on time, which included probably 30mins of gaming with SkyForce at work. I didn't flash the Soak 2 update on it yet, as I may need my desktop to do so in the same way I flashed soak 1. Remember, even though "Moto's" soak tests are close to what their live firmware ends up being, the radios on this thing could still use some tweaking.

    I think that this phone with new usage can do 1.5 days with 6.0.1. Light to medium usage is two days easily. The biggest gas guzzlers are the QHD screen and the radios, and with the radios tweaked, those are realistic numbers.

    The reason why this phone frustrates me is that the one feature that's sub par cannot be fixed - the camera. The G4's two big dings in my book are the screen in outdoors and the battery. While I cannot change the sunlight legibility of the screen in the same manner I cannot change the bad camera in the Maxx, I can better manage the so-so battery life of the G4 by using a spare battery than I can do with the Maxx's camera.

    That's a shame because this phone has literally everything else I want - a big battery, wireless charging, a very good screen in and outdoors, decent audio and ample internal storage. The design I didn't mind either, and the "modified stock" approach works. If I was using Windows as my daily drive, this is a great compliment. If I continue to overlook the camera, this is a nice compliment. But if I sold my Z3, which has a better shot of software support via Sony (than "Moto" for a less popular phone) because of primarily an inconsistent camera, then I cannot really keep this as it wasn't much better with the same issue...

    Approved by Z3 Tablet Compact!

    6.0.1 seems to be interesting on the Z3 Tablet Compact. I'll refrain from my comments until I can nag Rue into doing a review.

    Sounds great!
    Cool!

    I have some of my collection converted to ALAC and stream those lossless through my Onedrive on my iPhone no problem with the Groove app for iOS. For the rest of my FLAC collection that I don't feel like converting, (or re-encoding the originals) I just use the VLC app to stream the FLAC files from my Onedrive. As a matter of fact, I believe PLEX was supposed to add FLAC support in one of their recent updates.. I need to try that.

    That's the beauty of it all though.. The Onedrive streaming, with whatever bitrate I choose, there's always a way. And I never have to keep any music (or movies) on my phone taking up space. I never worry about data usage either because I'm always on WiFi. Yeah, I was serious about never having to use iTunes unless I want to install a ringtone! :D

    Sweet! I just checked, and PLEX does indeed now stream FLAC, and with today's update, now does ALAC files as well!

    PLEX just may be my all in one GO TO app for all media, music and movie streaming now!
