    In other non-innuendo related news, I'm going to try Xiaomi's USB-C ANC headphones. I really wanted to try Andy's HD USB-C ones, but that $99 process tag was hard to swallow. Those it would appear have better compatibility, so I'm hopeful the Xiaomi's play nice with the Pixel 2.

    The difference was price and pick up ability that swung me to Xiaomi. I enjoyed their Pistons and the other headphones I chose for the dongle are nice. I just need something to be in-ear that can handle my abusive commute - the dongle cannot.

    I wish I had seatbelts to buckle. My supervisor said I have to ride bareback and if I can keep up, I'll be provided with a seatbelt (*watches Libra and Sahib have confused looks while 99 facepalms*).

    So Rue, Mr. Clue, 99 and MIA walk into a bar...

    Now, I wonder who has the best zingers in the group? I suspect it's a 4-way tie, but it'd be a fun time to find out...

    Ah, Android Central finally released their review for the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact. https://www.androidcentral.com/sony-...compact-review

    It sounds good but that price though, I'll have to wait.

    I'm thinking of possibly just updating my iPhone 7 after all and using it. Already having performance quirks that do not exist with the iPhone. Thanks to getting it, I have learned useful things about Apple's supply chain. The only gain I have had with being on the A3 is with my podcast app (that works better on Android!) and of course, the battery life.
    AC has historically, outside of that X Compact (and even then, they didn't cruciffy it), been favorable to Sony's compact line with their reviews.

    There's an innuendo that was used for the contextual purpose of the primary implication here as working without support instead of the traditional meaning of the innuendo. However, the innuendo's traditional meaning was used to highlight the feeling of the risky state of working without support.

    (Hence the faceplam from 99 and Mr. Clue's like)

    Make sense? I can break it down more but Laura's doghouse I'd prefer to avoid.
    Yeah that makes sense. There's no way I would have known that.

    That makes sense. Let us know how this goes please? I might be in the market for this kind of thing at some point.

    You're right about that. It was nice to see that the camera was not a con after all. It's hard for me to swallow the price but it's okay, my hands are tied because of that price and outside things...

    I can see that but I think they probably aren't by themselves with it though.

    The goal under capitalism by all companies is to make super profits.

    Maybe a year from now when I don't have as much stress as I do now.

    Can only go through the motions and see what happens.

    I also hope that things will go the way that you need them to, at least a little bit.

    It appears that the stress levels for the vets here are pretty high. I'm hopeful that the rest of the year brings more successes and less stressors for everyone - posters and lurkers alike.

    To me, that's inexcusable. I was part of a major renovation project at the Miami VA about 8 years ago and I'm still not over the conditions I saw when we did a pre-con walk through with the Army Corps of Engineers.

    It goes in waves, I suppose.

    There's a lot of things in the world that's inexcusable (like what's currently at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave), but we have to work through them. I'm just hopeful things end up improving in the way folks want, including for me as well.
