Prime Day 2018

    The hits keep coming:

    Repair man: "So what phone are you using these days? Windows phone?"

    (He knows I used to rep it a lot. His wife always scoffed at it and became an iOS user years ago.)

    Then he starts ribbing me by calling me by my given name (he knew me by one of my nicknames) as seeing my ID.

    Funny guy - very intelligent, he, his wife and the repair tech (I think that's his brother). Very versed in mobile tech too.

    He's rocking a OnePlus 3 (no surprise) and an iPhone 6S.

    Walking into the store brings back lots of project repair and recovery memories...
    Sounds like you two are really cool with one another and/or you're just super friendly.

    At the core, it's two enthusiasts at heart who can talk tech with each other.

    Gotta like Just Bagnell...he talked about questioning OnePlus' software support for future devices by referring to the OnePlus 2 fiasco.

    Good.

    True, that sounds like an interesting conversation to have.

    I'm indifferent about what I've seen so far. Don't think I saw anything that would make me buy it, honestly. I'd still take a G6 over it. Price wise, value is solid. Good for the enthusiasts and the people OnePlus targets, but not for me.

    I agree. I am more inclined to take the new G6 Plus in Blue over this device. I have enough background with the G6 camera to say this.

    Watching this guy (on YouTube) talk about how to circumvent updates by Apple is interesting. It's a little too extreme for me.

    Edit: Basically, you can go into the router and block updates from downloading on your phone or you can just take 4k video, enough to not allow for space for the update to download again after deleting it, and then just delete when needed for space and do it again.

    The G6+ sounds nice. I agree with both of you on preferring the G6.

    After watching his video and reading your comment, I had to find out when the OnePlus 2 was released. I was surprised to see that it isn't *that* old to get the treatment that it got.

    Ibid. I think OnePlus is slowly prepping their fanbase for when they start to charge big boy OEM money in a few years.

    He likes it but he dinged the U11 for no apparent reason.

    Wasn't a fan of his U11 review, honestly. That's the one I wasn't feeling. Otherwise, his work is solid.

    And the moral of the story - when a woman says no, she means no.
    They are actually kind of good. Not very spicy/hot.

    I'm sure they were fine...but she seemed unimpressed from the outset and nothing happened to change her mind.

    There's a lot of backstory behind this, but my point is that if Sony(!) was able to update the Z3+ to 7.0, OnePlus has no excuse.

    Debit cards lack the protection offered by credit cards or PayPal here in the US.
    I know. Canada and Australia were both like that. I didn't know a Visa debit existed until wife's family came to visit us in 2008. They've had them for years here. It was it on 2007 when we got married in Finland... Anyway...

    Australia just changed recently I'm not entirely sure about all of Canada but I believe my mum's got a Visa or MasterCard debit now as well.

    I think they're great personally. Not as perfect as a credit card or PayPal but good enough.

    They don't make chips all that hot I think for legal reasons.

    Doritos had this mix bag over here where there were some hot spicy ones in it. They called them Roulettes. They weren't that hot and spicy but still got complaints.

    Then again, it takes a lot to impress me when it comes to hot and spicy.

    well found the KEYone at a store today. none actually in stock but one on display. Nice looking device. Seems a touch slower than the S8 but nothing major.

    Oh, I forgot!

    Went looking for the Key One and didn't see it. Saw the U11 and in typical Sprint fashion, you cannot hold the phone in your hand. What I was able to touch I really liked. It reminds me of the 10 last year...I like what I see.

    My favorite spicy chips of all time - Poore Brothers Habanero. Not available in California near my place in a 50 mile radius. Probably ate a bag every week when I was in Arizona. For a slightly less kick I would eat their Jalapeno chips.

    Yeah I couldn't hold this one in hand either which was one thing I really wanted to do as well. That was one of the main things I was curious about. Think I'm leaning towards the S8 but going to do more research tonight. Who knows maybe I'll change my mind and get the g6 or the iPhone 7 plus haha

    I want a great camera, good battery life or minimum fast charge. Will use for both work and play so productivity is always big on my mind as I hammer through a lot of emails and things.
