    I saw a Nextbit Robin in the wild today, and in the variant i liked...the white & mint combo. A really nice little phone...a pity the battery is on the too small for me side.

    I see one of the homeless ladies I'm used to seeing is still around. I don't doubt that she's dealing with some trauma and emotional disturbance on her life journey. I've seen this woman pregnant and if my memory is correct with one other kid. There are some new faces and some of the old ones...another older one usually wears a coat (typically the same one) year round.

    Your heart goes go out to them if your heart has a true pulse, that is. I'm thinking about the old chess master who i saw a few weeks back (during my last day off) and I'm trying to see if i can scrounge up some resources for him. The guy is still very gifted and talented...good enough to be a HS English teacher or teach in a ESL (english as a second language) program...

    Lol. I now remember how much of a cluster**** traveling home on a Saturday night is. Wait times are long, buses are usually full.

    The need to do something and be about something different has never been more evident...

    One of the joys of living in Murcia is seeing how well things can work when marginalized folks are put in positions to strive or merely fend for themselves on an unobstructed manner. The issue is always when the powers that be who want to keep them marginalized and exploited get in the way...

    Guess this is why I'm a SW-in-training. I cannot just sit idly by and be an accomplice via inaction to such continued suffering.

    I really, like the RIM keyboard. Very solid and well put together. My issue with it is that when you install it and are using another keyboard, it's very easy to switch to the RIM keyboard accidentally...and it's a pain in the *** to switch back to something else...

    I mostly use the Google keyboard because i like how well the voice integration is.

    But the TP logo had some good laughs as well until they decided after 24 hours to pull the plug on it. However, the internet remembers everything for posterity....

    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.

    Call me clairvoyant but I see a Mi5 in your future before a G5 pops up...

    Well, if your clairvoyance is indeed accurate, that might actually cause me to not get a G5 at all. That's assuming that it runs very well.

    I think if the American people are foolish enough to elect him, and they most certainly are, you will actually see a very very very interesting shift. I don't think it would not be any much different than what President Obama experienced when he made the transition from a presidential candidate to actually being president. This is a different sort of animal and I wouldn't be surprised that if they really do elect Trump, that he would only get one term.

    You can be a juvenile as much as you want, but if your message is how you're going to grow the economy and bringing more jobs... And you don't do it...Trump's supporters will turn on him very very quickly.

    I always liked what i read in the Mi5 reviews. It seemed to be a very capable device that i wished had US LTE bands, or at minimum, T-Mobile AWS support. I too wish it had a dual sim hybrid slot instead. The first of the sub $500 big 4 (the others being the OP3, Idol 4S and Axon 7), it really seemed to set the bar in terms of affordable flagships for 2016.

    Still, if the overall experience is solid enough, it is the clear winner when choosing between the Mi5, 5X and Robin at the price point i think i could be had for in this case.

    Well, the liquor store was open when i got there. I'm having an entry-level position throwback dinner...pizza and Smirnoff Ice.

    I'm digging this new black theme for Google keyboard. It's about damn time...

    This is the look i wanted the RIM keyboard to have, but it doesn't. So i may just uninstall the RIM keyboard, which is sad as it's my favorite alternative keyboard. Was never into the Swype stuff...'Muricans are lazy enough as is anyways...

    Speaking of Pokmon Go, one of my colleagues at work when on a date last night with a woman he met through the app. Next time we go out drinking, I'll ask him how that worked out...

    It's cool in a way since it makes people go out and talk with people. At least some good comes out with Pokemon go

    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****.

    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...

    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.

    800$ is a bit much for consumers :/

    I think OLED is still the best in my opinion. If they can figure out how to avoid screen burn in. It then could replace lcd

    If Apple hits with this in the next wave of iPhones, then I'll agree with you more definitively. Still, there are some bad *** LCD panels out there with great blacks and color accuracy. Huawei, for one is leading the charge with such panels.

    It's actually aimed at mostly the medium level managers and Executive types in the enterprise and business arena so they'll probably be able to afford it.

    I had every intention of taking a picture of the sign and posting it here on my way back from the barbers. However, the barber ticked me off so much I just walked past the sign on the way back and forgot to take a picture of it.

    Finally had a chance to mess with a X Pure Edition. I can see why Laura likes hers.

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

    Cool! I'm really happy with it, but I can understand that it might be too big for some folks.

    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...

    Posted via Moto Maxx
    Interesting! I never heard of the Ticwatch before. I like its name.

    What happened to your barber? That's too bad he's not going to be around. You seemed to like him and never mentioned getting a bad haircut.
