    To me, walking around with a battery pack plugged in via cable to a phone is just so sad. This is why while there are some nice phones out there, i really don't want small batteries anymore.

    Guess i prefer charging at home at night and would rather the power to get me through the day, than using Quick Charge in the middle of the day just to get me home.

    I'm implying that though I can appreciate the technology and even the idea of the game at the end of the day it's a game and it appears to be taking up too much of people's time.

    Not only that but it appears to be disruptive as well for some neighbourhoods and events.

    Also like I said. I have a life that is more full than having to care about a game. I don't mind games, they're fun but there's a point.

    I simply have better things to do and other things that take up my time, like work, my house and generally enjoying life.

    By all means play your game but realise when your crossing the line into obsession.
    I know you really wanted to say this...

    But, there's not much nostalgic about this commute, especially on a weekend. I'm hopeful we have a smooth day at work today, as I'm really not in the mood for any bull****.

    Very nice...but still too large for my tastes these days.

    Still browsing for a smart watch. Funny enough i still miss my G Watch R. Of the 3 2014 models, i liked that one the best...even though the 360 has such a nice retro yet futuristic design. The G Watch R is just too hard to find at my price. While i think it'll get Wear 2.0, I'm a bit leery for getting another 2014 device.

    As for the 2015 model, i like the S2 Classic, the Ticwatch and the Huawei watch. The Ticwatch is hard to get and runs a hybrid Chinese OS that's actually better laid out than Wear (with Google having a hand in it). The Huawei watch is nice but a little too small and too pricey. The S2 Classic is too small and runs tizen.

    Funny enough, i like the look and feel of the 42mm men's 360 (2015). It's not too small on the wrist. The 46mm 360 (2015) looks bigger than the one i have due to the lugs.

    Having used the SW3, 360, and G Watch R, I don't mind bigger watches and bigger smart watches by extension. I just don't see anything worth overpaying for. Guess it's back to bargain hunting browsing again...

    I know it's too early to judge Wear 2.0, but I'm not enamored by what I've seen so far. Looks like Google is making it more complicated than it needs to be in order to facilitate more mainstream adoption. Now, i certainly get it...these things aren't a necessity and at full retail price (outside of the Zenwatch 2) are way overpriced, but making the setup more feature packed runs the risk of being overly complicated.

    I may keep on using the 360 as my daily driver as it won't get 2.0. Still, i may be open to snagging a Moto 360 Sport or a 42mm 360 (2015).

    I passed by one of my favorite adult stores today on the way to a haircut with my soon-to-be former barber. They had the BEST take on Pokmon Go so far.

    They're a Pokestop and if you catch a Pokmon there you can get a discount on a vibrator. Now that's real marketing at work...

    I saw the Moto G (2016). They had a janky one in the Best Buy software wise...so i wasn't really impressed. Maybe it's because I've been using upper mid range or flagship screens for ever, but i don't like that screen at all. I'd grab that Honor 5X or 5C at that price point instead on that reason alone. I can see why it won so much acclaim, but the choices at that price point now are vastly improved.

    On the Windows front, I'm curious as to how the Anniversary software update will play out. I do think that buying a 950 series today is a much better software experience today than last fall. Still, i feel even the vaunted Surface phone next year, while will make a splash, may not help change public perception.

    I'm curious to see the HP phone though. It looks like it'll be pricey as **** but i hope the hardware lives up to the hype.

    Speaking of hardware, i see that Samsung plans to add an iris scanner into the Note 7. I asked the following question below on Android Central with no response, but once the Note 7 drops, this may get answered:

    Will the cops have the ability to make you unlock your phone with your iris in the same manner that they can get a court order for your fingerprint to unlock your phone if the fingerprint scanner is enabled?

    So i stopped into a Chipotle before i headed home and almost missed my train. It was very interesting to see a site that based on its location was always incredibly busy and full now be virtually empty seated dining wise.

    I think that the recent (at the end of last year coming into early this year) food safety concerns have affected the brand overall. What i also think affected this specific store location could be how slow as **** they move. I literally had to do the PM rush hour dash to catch my train in time. They've always been molasses pouring from a jar/watching paint dry slow at that location. There's always been a line there and they can never seem to get people moving in and out timely...

    Gonna change barbers soon as my current one has gotten too pricey. They gave me the lazy one today (who upgraded his Galaxy S4 to a S6 edge) who tried to hit me up for a tip afterwards...

    You know, the more I see the G5, the more i like the design...and the more i sour on the screen. Now in fairness, i didn't like the wallpaper on the G4 either, so I'm hoping it's that type of deal.

    Still, in a no compromise manner, I'd like to own both a 950 and a G5. It may not happen that way though.

    Today heat wise it was in the mid 90s in the NYC area. So of course a thunderstorm hit in the middle of the afternoon to break that up a little bit. While it's much cooler now, it's still a typical summer day here.

    I'm also nostalgic as I'm shifting through my own upcoming changes as well. Well, we will see where the tea leaves settle once the winds of change blow through.
