    They's in a heap of doodoo. Can't afford to run with the big dogs.
    True but this is sad. Imo, they are the third option for people buying carrier phones.

    Right? I know that they aren't Microsoft with the whole Lumia brand but reading this took me there to that time when they decided to "retrench". I just hope they aren't going to be like them.

    Finally picked up my new pairs of glasses and I love them. I added the blue light protect to the ones that will be my main pair and wow, I do notice a slight difference when looking at my phone and my laptop screen and even paper. lol

    Personally, I think LG should downsize and release only 4 phones a year.

    V-series flagship in the fall
    Mid ranger to replace the G series with either last year's chip or the current year's mid-range chip in the spring (SD 66x chips)
    The knock off Stylo series with better specs (like the SD 63x)
    One small screen budget phone (SD 43x chips)

    Overhaul the UI. Put good audio in all offerings. Better software support. Better battery life optimizations. Position themselves for media consumption junkies for most of their phone and content creators for the V-series.

    I'm terrible with glasses.. The pairs I have usually won't last a year. The lens get damaged by bad scratches or the hinges of the frames breaks..
    But surprisingly current pair has lasted almost three years now..
    I'm wearing web lens, or what we here call mahjong glasses.. It's great for reading my phone and good enough to see the other player's mahjong tiles across the table

    That's a solid idea! This sounds like it would already be much better for them.

    It makes too much sense, so they won't do it.

    Aw. Wow, 3 years is a while! I have had glasses in the past break too. My prescription is generally always changing, which is annoying but is a fact of life for me.

    I'm guessing you don't have to wear yours all the time?

    My last pair was good for 4 years. I haven't used plastic lenses since I was a teen. They scratch too easy and the optics are not as precise as glass. Yes I've heard the horror stories but I've been in the construction industry for over 30 years and never had any issues. What I do know is that my present set is over a year old and there are zero scratches. You get used to the weight in case you were wondering.

    My idea for a bumper sticker will employ the use of s**thole in some way, shape or form. I'm sure it'll be a top seller in the Little Haiti neighborhoods. Millionaire club here I come!!

    Temperature wise, yes. But it is dark and gloomy and rainy outside.

    Don't worry, it'll be back to freezing on Sunday.

    The prices for the Sony Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra are now available via Best Buy.

    $349 for the XA2 and $449 for the XA2 Ultra. To me, that doesn't seem bad at all really.

    I hope you get one on this wet night.

    As for the comment, is how I feel about it. Saw Anderson Cooper's response and it was great.
