    Well, looking forward to the 360 tomorrow. Picked up a nylon band so I want to test that out.

    I know some of the vets here are some music buffs, but I must say I am so glad I was exposed to such a wide genre of music growing up. My uncle who helped raised me growing up had a pretty powerful (and still does) home stereo setup. I miss the radio where on different days on a favorite station your hear jazz, folk/older country, 80s, 90s dance music, 70s funk, 50s and 60s R&B...and the local stuffs from the 60s-90s.

    Those were the days that inspired me to want to have a million songs in my collection...

    I'm debating setting a DND mode for when my shows are on. My sister called me like right before one of my shows is to start and she just kept talking. At a point, I heard a sound and said that I had to go. I thought that the sound was something else.

    Then she called me again like 3 minutes ago. I thought I was done. And what gets me is that we both watch this and hate when someone is talking to me while watching it LOL. TV fan problems but eh. I like my shows.

    Edit: She was ranting while getting lost and trying to find her destination, which is a dangerous combo anyway. I'm half joking and half serious about the DND mode thing though.

    Maybe aDND isn't the worst idea? Might give you a nice little break from the device and the ability to fully concentrate on the show.

    The GF gets like you when her mom is around.... mother-in-law often talks her head off and she complains about it (meanwhile in my head I go "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.")

    Free form radio FTW!

    I've found a few stations that I stream on the Tune In Radio app that still are free form.

    We had some good disc jockeys growing up on the main local radios. Without them, I'd be a pop culture guzzling musical neophyte...

    It's a hard life, I get her. At least I answer calls while watching my team play, but if I get distracted because they scored or there was an awesome play, it happens.

    Mother in law gives me grief "how come you don't visit when I stop by?" Well, it's because you're talking to her and then she comes to talk to me to escape a few minutes.

    I finally took my own advice that I have given about helping someone else choose between 2 phones (which is essentially an honest pro and cons list about each phone and even the little things) and the results are surprising. I compared the SE to the Pixel (still plan to keep both, just wanted to be sure about which one to use primarily) and the SE wins over the Pixel.

    So then why am I not using it? Since I wanted to know why, I left the sim in the Pixel and took the SE to work. I couldn't connect to the App Store using work WiFi but I was able to load the Play Store with no problem. (The iPhone 7 loaded the store but downloads were still slower and sometimes stuttered.) Even though the SE has a mute switch, it fits in every pocket and has great battery life, I'm willing to trade that for better connectivity in the Pixel, even though it fits in an OK amount of pockets and has generally good battery life.

    I never realized how much I value connectivity but it does make sense when I think about how I use a phone. I think I finally get MIA's point on the compromise thing so I can say that I'm good for a bit. Besides it seems like phones are getting taller and taller, which is nice for how much we get in a screen but sucks when it comes to fitting into a pocket. Well, my pockets anyway.

    So here's the setup. Whenever I visit and her mother is there, they talk a ton and whenever she gets tired of that, I get used as the escape. Whenever I call and her mother is there, my phone call gets used as an escape, even though her mom comes in and talks to her while we're on the phone for half the time.

    Her mom likes me though, so there's no issues there. I just know how it is and flow with it.

    I still like windows enough where I miss it when I don't have it...plus, I like to leave my phone as a communicator and am used to carrying​ around extra gear...so the 950XL is permanently stuck on heavy camera and spare phone duties.

    I never pegged you as the one phone solely type anyways. I'm glad you were able to figure out your process.

    I actually feel similarly about windows, but I get what you're saying. I can picture that you do that with the 950 XL.

    Before I started this journey of trying the other side a year ago, I was a one phone type but since I'm so attached to Windows (just not pleased with the massive tradeoffs at the moment for what I'm seeking), I can't be anymore. No one in my life gets why I can't just leave Windows behind and just use one. In some ways, I miss being a one phone person.

    Buying apps across three platforms occasionally is hard. Recently, I bought Nine on Android, a female health app on Windows, and eh, I forgot what on iOS. Fortunately, I don't buy paid apps much there.

    I hear that. It's tough to let go when you're committed to a certain OS. It has some amazing features and they're hard to let go. It's why I find I can never stick with just one and switch back and forth pretty consistently. It drives my wife crazy but I can't help it.

    I totally agree. I thought that I was done buying Windows apps, but I'm not.

    I've been getting the itch again to try a new phone and am really struggling with my decision. The KEYone is interesting and I love that battery life. Reviews have been pretty good so far. The s8 looks fun but I haven't really used a Samsung since the note 3. My wife really wants me to get an iPhone for the iMessage and FaceTime yadda yadda.

    I'm just not sure what best fits my needs at this point. I love customization and whatnot which is why I've never been able to stick with the iPhones.

    What are you using now?
    Besides customization, what other features are important to you?

    I came from the LG G5 and Blackberry Passport SE. Then I've been fiddling with a couple Windows phones in the 640 and 1520 and had an iPhone 6s for a bit in there too. I also have a leeco le S3 right now that I use off and on.

    They're all okay. I do a lot of messing around with ROMs and things on the le S3 just for fun and whatnot.

    I'll actually admit I miss my BB. I don't play games and I really don't have a need for a lot of the social apps. I do wish they had better cameras as trying to take pictures of the kids usually ended up with some blurry shots.
