    I got half of the accessories I ordered for the work phone today - holster case and tempered glass.

    Still adjusting to it, just won't make more fusses over it. It's a nice product, just not for me. I remember when my former colleagues were issues 5cs, so at least I avoided that...

    What has gotten my dander up has been the constant "Google Play services has stopped" error on my Moto 360. Even after resetting the watch a few times, the error persists.

    I see online what I can do is to try to flash a new version of wear 1.5, as I do not want to upgrade to 2.0. Unfortunately, I'm not able to get the watch to connect to a PC.

    So I'm stuck with either upgrading to wear 2.0 or just dealing with the constant error messages. It just sucks right now.

    Someday, it will happen for you.
    I've been going through London airports for almost 19 years. Finally made it to the sights.

    I've been to Edinburgh, Dundee etc but not London.

    Ha, ha.
    I have been to London, Ontario as well.
    There's quite a bit of difference between the two

    Depends on the who he's flying with.

    Not all carriers have WiFi onboard.

    It's just interesting how relative people's perspectives are and how personal cellphones have become.

    I can think back to Libra searching for a size fit and it reminded me of the various devices sizes I've used.

    It was an adjustment going from sizes like the HTC Touch/HTC Touch Diamond/Sony M600/Sony P990 to a an Xperia X1 and HTC Kaiser to HTC Touch HD and HTC Mozart. I can recall the size adjustment going from the Mozart to a Focus S and then a Galaxy Nexus and then into Moto X and Sony Xperia Z3 territory.

    Now it's weird to find the iPhone 6S so small having adjusted up from the Xiaomi Mi 5/Honor 8 screen size to the LG V20/Xiaomi Mi Note 2 size.

    It's all about perspective and priorities, really.

    Didn't try it. It was available for $19 for the flight. I caught up on some movies and sleep.

    So since I didn't make it official here, I should clarify it now: I recently got a job back with the hospital I was working at for eons. It's now in a different department and is reflective of my new found graduate degree.

    Yeah, I shouldn't have been moaning about the work issues iPhone as much, but I suppose my job had gotten more important to wear I get to carry around a work phone.

    You gotta let us know how the hallway conversations with your ex supervisor are going?

    I only once went bigger to smaller, when I went from a BlackBerry 9000 to a 9700.

    Since then I've either gone bigger with each phone or chose the same size. My history after the BlackBerry 9700 had been: Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia Lumia 920, Moto X (2013), Moto X Pure Edition, LG V20.

    I'm at the point where I like 5.7" phones and don't want anything smaller.

    Having picked up a working commute again, I really appreciate the HiFi audio on the V20. It'll be very hard to switch to a phone that lacks the audio chops on this level. Guess it officially takes me out of the running for nearly everything currently on the market except for 3 models. I'm still not a fan of the V20'S battery life, but I hope that whenever they update the unlocked model to 8.0 I can flash the US firmware to see some improvements.

    Made it out of the airport and through Customs in record time despite landing at a remote location and taking the bus to the terminal.

    I haven't gone back to the old department yet, as it is off-site from the main hospital campus where I'm not working at.

    Plus when I do go back to visit, I've got no intention of visiting her. Does that work for you as hallway conversations?

    That's probably the best hallway conversation to have!

    I can respect that. I've used screen sizes from 2.8" to 6.44". My sweet spot is 5.2". But, I can use something like a G6/950XL provided the frame around it isn't terribly "yuge".

    The Mi 5 was dead on for me...the best thing to hit the sweet spot since the Moto X 2013. The Z3 and Moto Maxx were tolerable because of design...slimmer for the Z3 and solid grip for the Maxx.

    That's the plan. I have nothing against her personally, just had some strong professional differences in opinion. I've heard my former team has gone to ****sville, with one girl being fired outright before her resignation was accepted and the one they handed the supervisor job they didn't want to offer to me is walking around miserable and complaining about leaving.

    Yeah, that's life, I suppose...

    Yeah that is weird haha. Well said though.

    I have had the opposite experience. I have always wanted to go back to something small, ever since the Lumia 521. Bigger devices are nice for the screen real estate but then I get frustrated about not being able to fit it into my pocket.

    I think for me now it's priority of lifestyle features. I suppose that's why I really liked the Z3. I could just use it and not worry about much about it, outside of the (to me) finicky camera.

    While it wasn't the best phone at everything, it was one of the most complete devices I've owned, down to receiving software support.

    I have an idea for a device in mind but because it is a variant of a 2017 phone I do not know if it's another Moto Maxx situation. So I'm hopeful after I stabilize some important things, the time will clarify that option.
