    Hey Laura!

    Looks like you've got a championship parade to attend...what a win by LeBron and what a choke job by Golden State...

    I'm unbelievably happy now! No Cleveland team had ever won anything in my lifetime until now.

    This was also an historic win, since it's the first time a team down 3-1 has ever won.

    The new phone itch has not gone away. I'd like to get the G5 or OP3 at the end of the year, but the OP3 lacks a SD slot (really wish it was a dual SIM hybrid) and there are still lingering build quality concerns a out the G5.

    Man, it is hard to find something good these days...

    I played with the G5 at a Verizon store a week ago and thought it was nice. If it was me, I'd get the V10, though, since the V10 has a bigger screen. I never thought I'd like phones with big screens but now I do. I still don't like big bezels, but the V10 has almost no bezels at the sides.

    Likewise, and I was surprised.

    Man, going from 40C to under 20C is hard on the body. :P It's also raining which doesn't help. :/

    Don't mention it. I forgot about Nexus 5X, until I checked prices yesterday. It's down to 280. Sure I'm compromising again but I feel like I'm compromising with anything I buy. LG G5 is nice but lacks AMOLED, I love Nexus 6P but it's big and has older not so powerful processor, with OP3 the problems are Camera, FPS on front and screen, S7 is too expensive and I don't really like the design that much. Sure with 5X I'm compromising on camera, screen, performance, build but I'm saving 120 even compared with OP3 and 200 against G5. Oh yeah don't know about HTC 10, seems almost perfect but for that money? I don't think so...

    Yeah, was home yesterday.

    Short trip, but that's what's great about living in the UK and Europe in general. You can do things like that.

    We have plans to go back. This year I used up a lot of my vacation with the house so don't have much left.

    I'm used to larger phones, but don't necessarily want one at this stage. I like the V10's camera because it has the crazy manual controls for both stills and videos. I would've gotten a 6P though. Remember, there's no excuse for phones to really be that big as MSFT (950 XL) and Samsung (Note 5) have shown you can do big screen in a compact way.

    Well, LeBron never has to buy a drink for himself in Cleveland again. And if he wins another one there, he could run for public office.

    Not a Cavs fan, not a LeBron fan either. But where LeBron is from is rough and Cleveland deserves a break as a hard working town. From that end, I'm fine with this.

    So you see my gripe for the past few weeks. Too much compromises being asked of consumers by OEMs when products don't have much deferential elements. As long as i can still stomach the maxx's camera, I'll hold onto it. A pity Moto won't update it software wise...

    My Moto G 2014 really feels old and slow. It's such a joy to be able to do what you want instantly and not waiting for phone to get its s**t together.

    The B&W makes it more atmospheric for some reason. They're also the same place.

    The second one is the sun setting from the entrance to the acropolis.
