    I'll do that, worldspy99. Thanks.
    And your DC recs were excellent. I have tons of food pics, but haven't had time to post them yet.
    I'm glad I was able to help. Just got done with dinner at an excellent place in Hudson, WI. Headed back to the hotel in Minneapolis.

    Glad to hear it! So I'm guessing the headset worked out okay? Are you looking forward to the Creator's Update on the XL?

    The headset is good. I need some silicone tips on it to improve the fit as it is the on-the-ear style (think Apple Earpods).

    Should I be excited about the Creator's update? I see T-Mobile pulled a Lumia 810 and EOL'ed the Idol 4S WP10 model.

    Ohh okay, I see. Glad to hear that the headset is good.

    Performance should improve and you can reset apps without having to uninstall and reinstall the app. There's something else I can't recall at the moment.

    In other words, nothing to write home about. Lol.

    You know, the one thing I like about using this beta weekly ROM is that I get...Weekly updates. Pretty solid deal. Would I like 7.0? Sure...But I'm not rushing for it.

    Lol I guess not but I'm always down for improved performance and actually being faster because it felt a little slow to me.

    Oh! I remembered the other thing. You will be able to uninstall some system apps if you don't use them, like Groove. I'm super excited for that.

    Can I uninstall the OS if I don't want it too?

    If there's one trait I wear well for my sun sign, it's my indecisiveness.

    Not sure if I want to go down the roommate rabbit hole and have more general space or really have my own but have it be small for my place (since that's what I'm working with for a bit until I get into school, finish and then get another job at another place). Everyone has warned me of the dangers of having a friend as your roommate but I don't know how it would go with a new, random person since I'm a quiet person generally.

    I did the "trading" of Pixels and it was a lot of hassle. Debating if it was worth it. I feel like it is because the black front bugged me. It's ridiculous that the Pixel always seems to be out of stock in at least one size and/or color. I still wish that there were more smaller phone options.

    Edit: Either way, at the moment, I feel phone fatigue for myself anyway.

    The one nice thing about a random roommate is there isn't that feeling of 'needing to socialize or include them' in all activities. I know that happened when I lived with a friend which was fine for the most part but sometimes you just wanted to do things alone or whatever. Random roommates is just sort of like gambling, you never know what you're going to get.

    That's good to know, I didn't think of this.

    Ugh it really is LOL. I was going to room with my sister (she has a townhouse) in one of her rooms but since she's getting married this year, I'm so not doing that.

    Someone at work (she's also working on moving out of where she is too) suggested that I could ask my brother if he wants to room with me but I don't know about that. Me and my brother are good but I don't see that playing out well when I date...

    Ha ha yeah there's lots of decisions to make. You could try hanging out with a 'random roomate' first too and see what your chemistry is like before committing to anything. Might help with finding the right person.

    Hmm that's a great suggestion, thank you for that. You're so right about the decision thing, I really want to try to do this in the way it makes the best sense to.

    Just saying. I mean, every time I look at my 950XL, I'm seduced as to why I like it. And if I stay in the MSFT bubble, it works well. Problem happens when I want to use other services on the platform...Then I'll have to pull out my Android tablet because there aren't the third party services I prefer to use!?

    It was never about the app gap...It was about good consumer-oriented business relationships. I still like the OS though...

    Just setup my Amazon echo. Kind of an interesting device. Not sure how much I'll use it but nice so far for calling out timers and listening to music or podcasts while making meals.

    Yeah haven't really looked into what it can all do or the skills but I got a great price on it and using as a glorified Bluetooth speaker with a few other handy features.

    It's pretty good. Funny enough, I was reading where Xiaomi is having production issues with the device. It is really solid and I get weekly updates because of the beta ROM. I'm pleased so far with it.
