    This is one area where I gotta give props to Apple. They don't mistreat their tablets
    You mean the same Apple that throttles CPU performance via updates to keep the gravy train going?

    They're all crooked in my book.

    You know, even Sony is good with updates now. That's a hell of a thing.

    But there is one group of people I blame, honestly.
    I was beyond surprised when a Sony X Performance I was playing around with a month ago got Oreo. That phone was released in February of '16.

    We'll update your device but then we will throttle it so you can give us some more moolah

    Internals wise, it wasn't a bad phone. Design and place wise, that was an unnecessary device.

    At least they bend over their customers with a smile...and when they complain they tell them they're not bending over correctly.

    That's how savage Apple is to your *wallet* for the "premium experience". Thanks, but no thanks.

    I still wish that for my friend's dad I had gotten him a 1020. We got him a 920 and he still cannot put it down. Such amazing tool in the hands of a true photographer...

    Not much snow to delay but slick. My boss is making me go to a presentation I'll rather not be at. We will see if it's still on.

    Meanwhile, I'm rolling in snow showers crap.

    Hey, what's up with that ***** celeb who tweeted about the mudslides not letting her see some performer she's hooked up with?

    Didn't realize they still made them tone deaf in Cali...

    The presenter had some good points but at a point, he was in his feelings about a misunderstanding.

    This interview process reminds me of the bar scene in Coming To America where Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are trying to find a queen. I hate my job this week. I'm silently praying 🙏 for a fiasco at one of the jobsites so I can get the hell out of here for a few hours.

    So one advantage of using a dying platform?
    I am listening to music on Spotify and not a single ad yet. I don't care if they update the app or not. The free version on WM10 has no ads. That is pretty big in my book.

    I might have to start interviewing for an Administrative Assistant as well. It'll be a replacement position for the brain-dead one I have now who scheduled an interview for 5:00 this afternoon. Somebody help, I might need bail money.

    I'm glad today is done but the light in it is that I got my backpack today and it fits my big laptop very well without swallowing me. I love it and I actually feel ready for classes now.

    And yet she seems smarter than that NJ sorority girl at U of Alabama dropping N bombs and actually acting a fool on the 'gram.

    Boy sometimes you cannot script stupid even if you wanted to...

    I'll be in the minority here and state I dislike the current public beta programs by most of the OEMs. I may even go as far as stating that while engineers have lots to do juggling multiple projects, I'd rather beta testing be done by savvy persons who can get real feedback.

    Hmm this is an interesting statement. I'm curious if the real feedback is the only reason for you or if there's another reason in there.

    Just don't think it gets the updates out faster, that's why.

    Ah okay, that makes sense. For some reason, I had the Insider program in mind when you said that.

    It's just my opinion. I think the insider program was better because you had more people willing to actually give feedback and it allowed builds to be run on phones MSFT wasn't necessarily going to update.

    I don't get a sense that especially on Android with some of these OEMs you're getting that sort of feedback which may lead to the builds being out faster.

    Truth be told, people on Android are grateful to get updates. That's the downsize of making hardware almost so disposable...
