    Damn, this S8 is nice. Also I don't think I am going to have any issues with the fingerprint scanner location.
    I don't think it is as bad as people say. What would have made it better is if the tech was ready where they could have put the fingerprint scanner into the spot where the home button is currently.

    Samsung could have pushed for something like that, but they're pushing the iris scanner instead. Personally, I won't use that feature for certain reasons...

    Lots of changes for me are in the works. I think that's been the most striking thing about these past six months - working through things in a perpetual state of changes. I'm glad for the experience because I can now make some changes going forward to better work through those types of experiences.
    Good luck with all the upcoming transitions. ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you will find new opportunities that work out well for you.

    Samsung tried, Apple is trying as well. So is Synaptics. I bet by the end of this year we will have solved the poor fingerprint scanner location issues. I do think that on the S8+ the fingerprint scanner location might create problems butโ€‹on the regular S8 at least for my personal use case there are no problems.

    Qualcomm's 935 does support it, if someone can pull it off, from what I remember. Xiaomi was trying with this too, from what I remember. The fingerprint scanner placement doesn't bother me on the S8 or S8+ because unlike many tech reviewers, I was born with 10 fingers and you can easily learn how to unlock the phone with your middle finger and not always use your index finger. I would have preferred Samsung switch spots for the fingerprintโ€‹ scanner and the LED flash, but other people would still complain about the placement.

    I hope you try it soon. It's a good feeling.
    Thank you, I'll like to. The hunt is exhausting sometimes. For now, I hope to be done and I think I am.

    The ZTE Quartz looks interesting. The price is appealing. If it was in black, it'd catch my eye more.

    Some evening shots I took at school last week. While not as sexy as 99's Pixel, I think it is still pretty solid.

    SSDD really. Still working these crazy double shifts.. and still thinking about getting out of this line of work.

    Other than that, this old Chrysler has been keeping me busy. I've replaced the entire ignition system and have it running great now. It's been converted from the 1980 factory "lean burn" carb system, to an electronic ignition with all new ECU, coil, ballast resistor, cap, rotor, wires, and new plugs.

    And of course I've been playing the guitar/keyboards but haven't recorded anything much lately.
