    Well, this is surprising but good to see. I'm wondering how this update is treating users.

    Speaking of phones. I'm enjoying my phone so far. It's quick and I like the fingerprint scanner.

    I've setup Google Assistant, unfortunately to get it I had to change the language settings to USA. Which is annoying.

    Saying that though. it's really quick and a lot better than Google Now used to be. So that was surprising.

    My tempered glass protector was crap so now I have to find a replacement, which is annoying. Wasn't the cheapest one either.

    I still find my case too bulky as well.

    On the whole I'm happy with the phone. The screen is brilliant and so far I like the camera. I still haven't done much to put it through it's paces. Just simply no time.

    If anyone is wondering, my wife and I are fine. I don't live in London or Manchester and wasn't visiting either at the time of the attacks.

    I don't think I'll ever fully understand why people do these types of acts. Seems so pointless. I know there are certain ideologies behind the thinking. I just can't wrap my head around it. It's simply too foreign to me.

    I did watch the benefit concert last night. It was pretty good.

    One of the reasons I'm looking forward to college is the fact that there won't be subjects that are not related to my proffesion, so I won't be bothered for nothing.
    When I went to college/university they typically put in other subjects to keep their students more 'well rounded'. As I haven't exactly been following education trends I thought that was pretty much standard practice the world over.

    You shouldn't go into 'learning' without realising there's more to life than the subject you're studying. Also, you should also be thinking beyond your college/university graduation. Life doesn't always go as planned.

    Aw, does she have a name? Very adorable!
    Nope, we still haven't figured out an appropriate one. We were so creative that we ended up calling her mum just kitty. We really need to step up our game :D.

    I got all of the shoes I ordered for the dress and I have decided on one! Since one of the shoes is just too short for the dress, I'm going to keep it to use outside of the wedding so one pair of shoes is going back for sure.

    1 down, 2 tasks to go.
    Ah, wedding preps. Good luck there, if you're anything like me you'll need it.

    Does the XZ have the same camera as the Premium version? I'd like to see that 960FPS in action.

    No, it's similar but different to the Z3. It's got special stablisation and better software but nothing too fancy unfortunately. I don't really require 960FPS personally I rarely take video as it is.

    The only thing my phone is similar to the XZ premium is the body.

    There's no logical way to justify, or even explain why would someone attack innocent, random strangers. It's plain wrong and deserves all the possible condemnations.

    Again, as a muslim, I'll say this omce again, this is not islam. ****load of things have happened to prove me wrong, but you got to realise that the sick and twisted minority does not represent the whole group. What are these individuals trying to achieve is beyond me, and what ISIS is trying to achieve is still a mistery to me.

    There are a few 'extra' subjects, but nothing too far from my focus area. Such was Latin while I was going to the Mathematics-Informatics Gymnasium.

    It:s highly unlikely to go as planned in a country like this. I do have some ideas that I want to bring to life during the college.

    If there was one thing I didn't like about the XZ was the fair amount of excessive meat at the front of the device.

    Yeah, by the time we had a decent name in our minds she already got used to be called kitty. So we just stick with it :D.

    It's very easy to change a cat's name. We changed our cat's name and it was three years old.

    There's so much to say here... I'd probably only end up offending a lot of people...

    I'll put it this way... cherry picking, strict adherence and 'tradition' are 99% of the problem when it comes to religions. All religions.

    So the Wear 2.0 update has hit my 360...and I'm not taking it. Looking for a way to remove the notification badge but it isn't as easy. I've seen it mess up a lot of people, so I don't want it for now on this watch. I should post the picture of my Huawei watch freezing after it took the update and I took it off the charger...

    I need to go the ADB route and sideload a dummy OTA package. I'll just ignore it.

    Traditions are meant to be both respected and changed. There is a fine line and most times, people go overboard either in changing traditions or reinforcing them. This is especially the case whenever religious beliefs and practices are involved.

    Yep. Tradition is usually the driving force behind certain ideas. It's the reason why some religions still exist over the actual religion itself.

    Take Roman Catholics, Jews or Church of England. Lots don't follow their 'faith' and sometimes don't believe in them but practice it's traditions regardless. The pull is usually out of respect for the elders and the past.

    It's a continuous cycle of one passing on ideas from one generation to another. Typically to the easily convinced young brain.

    (offence notice)... It's like passing on a very bad disease from generation to generation.

    Racism gets passed along in a similar vein.

    The question is in a time where the millennials are starting to take over from the "golden generation" (baby boomers) as the driving force behind culture, how do we maintain balance? Lots of folks are very focused on either merely clinging to traditions or blowing them up without truly beneficial replacements...
