    Man that S8 looks nice. Why can't we get the nice devices (or... really just any devices at this point).

    In other news our offer on a house has been accepted so paperwork galore!
    Congrats! Welcome to the club!

    Yeah, lots of paperwork.

    I'm assuming you're getting a mortgage? We went with Halifax, well we had little choice, had to watch a couple of videos so she didn't have to explain everything, seemed to take forever... Thankfully the person handling our mortgage had a sense of humour about the whole thing.

    The lawyer bit was just signing papers. Rather quick overall. Anticlimax actually.

    Then there's getting the insurances... Sigh...

    Make sure you check around for quotes on insurances. Our bank offered them and they proved to be more expensive.

    Welcome back. Did you get to take care of all of it, or at least enough of it?

    We've gone through a local independent mortgage advisor, we've got a solicitor so now we're waiting for the estate agent and solicitor and the bank to get paperwork over to us, which is a bit frustrating. I've been told by people at work that anything that involves a solicitor involves frustration and pain so... woo!

    Looks like Samsung went fancy with the S8. I'd still pick a G6 based on what I've seen so far...

    Yeah I don't blame you there. It looks easier to hold. It's kind of trippy that they are the same height, I think.

    Of course the fingerprint sensor is in a better place too.

    I see mhkbhd has started to grow up again and this time evolve into a phone reviewer and not a great phone overview style of content. Good for him, I guess.

    Samsung wanted you not to use the fingerprint scanner. If they were focused on better one handed usage, they could have swapped placement for the fingerprint reader for the flash. It's all about the iris scanner as the way to unlock the device.

    That's true. I don't doubt it but the way that has been on the 950s has me feeling kind of apprehensive about people actually adopting this as the regular way to unlock.

    I heard it was improved on the Note 7, but I don't want to use iris scanner for safety reasons for my commute.

    I do like the Mi note 2. I'm seeing some RoMs I could update to, but I don't feel like manually flashing ****.

    Bordeaux is very nice. We'll have to come back when we have more time and a better camera. Sony Z3 is a bit disappointing for night shots. Off to the countryside now!

    Nothing like a solicitor to slow things down.

    We tried an independent mortgage advisor but we proved a bit difficult for them for some reason. That was more painful than dealing with the solicitor...

    It's amazing how we take advantage of things our bodies can do.

    I have had seriously reduced hearing in one ear for like a month and some. I have been quietly suffering until I saw an ENT doctor. I had my follow up yesterday afternoon and I was all cleaned out. Wow, it's amazing to be able to hear correctly again. Everything seems so loud! I am so grateful that I almost want to cry.
