    I'm still at a loss what to get for a new phone. The Z3 is starting to show it's age. I have no interest in any phone at the moment and definitely don't want to spend huge amounts either.

    Sort of stuck.
    iPhone will be out today so maybe...?😁

    Today they're having the "iPhone 7" event in San Fran.

    I have no plans on getting the 7 myself, but will wait for the "tock" model of the "tick tock" cycle. (AKA the "S" model) where they take the new phone and improve everything internal. The 6S/6S Plus models were huge improvements in performance all the way around over the 6, though they look like the same exact phone.

    Couple things I'm interested in hearing about today though, are:

    will they actually finally ditch the 3.5mm jack?
    are they going to use OLED screens?
    what new camera tech?
    3.5mm jack is dead, man.

    I'll watch this to see the news, but it's the 10 year anniversary iPhone (next year) is what I REALLY want to see.

    The "Pixel" is a phone now?
    Most likely. It would make sense as they - Google - could lump their phones, watches, tablet-esque devices under one brand.

    No interest in an iPhone at all. Way over priced for what I want and I have no desire to get locked into that ecosystem.

    I wonder if they were the first to invent wireless charging yet?

    So, with the new MS rewards, I guess all your Xbox digital purchases will also add 1 point for every dollar spent... I thought it was just physical MS store purchases, but I got 1 point for buying a $0.99 app the other day.

    I have one, and I'm not locked into anything... I'm still using all of my Microsoft services (and Google's!) all quite effectively and even better. My Windows 10 PCs and laptops all work perfectly!

    I could never understand what people are so afraid of getting "locked" into... Since I switched back to iPhone, I've felt more "unlocked" than anything. Liberated! I can do anything now... Any app, any service, you name it.

    Yeah, there's the whole iTunes thing that everyone hates, sure, but like I've said before, I don't use it... don't have to! (Unless I really really want/need to add a custom ringtone - that's it!) I surely don't have to purchase my media from Apple and everything I use for my media consumption is cross platform; PLEX, Groove, Onedrive, etc etc...

    The way I look at the "walled garden" isn't that I'm "locked in", but that all the bad stuff (malicious software/apps) is locked out.

    So my circle of friends goes like this. There's me and 3 other friends that make the narrowest possible circle, then there are two more guys who are almost on the same level, just entered it a bit later, and then there's like 10 more of them who I really like and appreciate.

    So the guy who's in the second one, one of my best friends, just literally attacked me and insulted me by talking **** about my mother and stuff, you know how it goes. Why? 'Cause he likes this girl, but is not brave enough to approach. The girl and I are are very good friends, and have been since the start of the highschool, she's the type of friend that I can drink and sing with like nobody else, 'cause we have similar taste in music. Anyway, few nights ago we went of friend's birthday party in the pub and well, I was singing and goofing around with her. Just that. Nothing more. She's just a friend, and I was drunk as ****, I wasn't able to be mean to him even if I wanted to

    He was an ******* towards me after the party, talked bull**** on viber etc, I was cool with it, 'cause we're friends, I thougjt it was just a joke.

    Today after the school we went to a coffe, another friend took my seat while I was away, so I had to sit next to that "girl of his", he said nothin
    Now I get home and he starts ******** around saying stuff like bros before hoes and similar crap. There are no things I hate more than pathetic drama and tears.

    To shorten this long post, he's convinced I'm trying to steal his girl and is acting pathetic and *******-like. Don't know how to behave since I'm really upset now.

    I said I don't know how to behave 'cause I also hate meaningless fights and not talking to people because of some stupid crap.

    I never thought of that girl in a way he's imagining, heck I have crush on her cute friend, AND HE KNOWS THAT. That's what pisses me off.

    Ah being young and full of testosterone...

    I know how you feel. There's just some people you can't please no matter what you do. He's obviously got confidence issues if he's that concerned. Doesn't say much about what he thinks about his girlfriend either.

    Well yes, you got that right, he does have low self esteem for some reason. I mean, all the girls should be his, he plays guitar, and when I say plays I main he nails it, he's also good looking and a nice guy as well, don't know what's wrong. We tried to help him, but apparently it went the wrong way and now I'm stuck with this unpleasant situation.

    iPhone 7 = Galaxy S7. Same design, almost nothing new.

    They should've gotten rid of it years ago, not just Apple, but every phone manufacturer. Such an inferior technology.

    31? Really? Well we've been having Autumn for the last 2 weeks or so already. No more 20+ temperatures, I doubt it.
    Can't complain though, for some reason I'm looking forward to Winter.
