    Cool, thanks for sharing. I'll be looking forward to your review and if the pros and cons make it worth the upgrade or not. I hope the annoying things work themselves out.
    I don't think much will change with my review. What I'm hoping for though is to test it out on a clean device. But I'll share my impressions for sure.

    I just forgot to inform about it. It's the girl I mentioned a few days ago. We got along really good, liked each other, and well, I had to make my move :D. So long story short, we're together now.
    Have fun with that, sir.

    Work day is over. Off-site visit ran quickly so I'm not spending 30mins of travel time back to the office to do 1hr's worth of calls.

    This is a nice deal. But I'll pass as I don't want the 360 cam.

    Read about this in the Essential Phone forum and it is very nice. I didn't see this coming.

    I did, which was why I was waiting patiently. But I also heard of at least one person picking up micro scratches from using the 360 camera. Thanks but no thanks.

    I need a real day off. So I'm looking forward to the Friday before Christmas.

    How about French Fries? I know, low hanging fruit.

    So is it me or were the Black Friday "deals" anti-climactic this year? Except for Andy's folly, I didn't see anything to get worked up for.

    To be fair, I have no idea what any of the deals were (to be able to comment on this) because I didn't look anywhere but I doubt that you're alone there.

    The deals weren't good phone wise really. Only thing outside of Andy's phone I liked was the Mate 9 for $400.

    Phone wise Andy's phone was a good deal. Now I had already picked it up for a better deal earlier but I got this one as well for two reasons.
    1. Better use of my net cash - $110 was sitting in Amazon credit
    2. Scienceguy Labs talked me into buying the 360 camera.

    Speaking of Cyber Monday.
    I picked up a new Fire TV Stick and a new iPad Pro 256 GB LTE (might as well go for broke).

    About the girl, she listens to rock, a big fan of Sting and likes art and culture (that means visits to theater and plays without having to beg someone to go with me).
    She's studying Italian and I'm already picking up some words. It'd be so cool to learn a new language.
    Congrats and all that.

    I'll be learning a new language as well.

    This is a difficult question.

    There's traditional regional French cuisine (sort of dying out) and then there's nouveau French cuisine, which is sometimes a new take on traditional cuisine.

    You probably know a lot of French influenced dishes already without realizing it. Like steak and fries or escargot. Different French sauces like bernaise and hollandaise. Desserts like creme brulee and eclairs. Even lemon meringue pie has it's origins in France.

    The big thing about French cuisine is the sauces and herbs. The French are big into those things. The other being fresh seasonal ingredients. They do like their meat but they also do great salads. They also love their butter.

    As France is fairly large there's variety in the food in different locations. It just depends what interests you. Meat, fish, veggies and sauces. The French do all very well.

    All I can say is go to a good French restaurant and enjoy.

    If I were to say one dish that is typically French it would be duck confit.

    Depends if you like duck.
