    Thanks Laura

    ... And I'm off tonight, going back to Penang for a couple of weeks.. Visiting my mum, food, beaches, shopping, food, old school mates.. did I mention food??
    You are going to make us hungry.
    By the way, I got some fresh sambal from a Vietnamese place on Saturday and it was amazing (spicier than most chili pastes I have ever had but oh so tasty).

    Strategery (homage to W) is good and all but let’s not overlook the fact that the dude rarely misses on his answers/questions.

    Sambal from a Vietnamese place? I always thought sambal, like satay/saté was Malay/Indonesian!! Best sambal would have toasted belacan, basil & lime juice in it... darn, I'm getting snack attacks and I just had a bowl of spicy prawn noodles for supper ...right after I landed!!

    Thought this was very interesting to watch and see. Both from a tech perspective and wood working.

    I think you kinda are. They are releasing them to enter the midrange market, from my understanding. It's just meant to have the same great camera but make sacrifices in certain areas. Considering how quick they pull their older phones, I guess this was their best option.

    I'm personally interested if the smaller model would be smaller than the S10e.
    Like I said I wasn't following what was going on.

    From a personal perspective they should have given them a different name. That"s a bit confusing.

    This is a fair point but it might be by design. The Pixels are known for having a great main camera, so the idea that this is something that can be had for less would make it more interesting.

    I can appreciate that but is it really necessary? Calling it Pixel 3a...

    Tag line, 'Different name, same great camera' or whatever.

    Using the G7 today. I can see why MIA liked this phone so much. I'm definitely trolling for a G8.

    Ordered a vinyl skin for the G7. Going to use the phone without a case and no screen protector. It's the Goldilocks size for me at least. Also LG seems to have tuned their display settings a bit better on the G7 as compared to the V30 which I could never get to calibrate to be equivalent to my Pixel 2XL in December 2017.

    You can always tell which brands are doing well by the sheer amounts of stalls, billboards, banners & buntings profligating the shopping malls.. Previously it was Samsung, past few year it has been Oppo & Vivo

    So it's been interesting to read all the new OnePlus 7 leaks/stories etc on the interwebs.
    Having owned a bunch of Oppo / Vivo phones there isn't anything new OnePlus is doing that the parent company hasn't put out. For example to know about the latest OP device just look at the prior Vivo device, add the new Snapdragon processor and Oxygen OS and voila!

    And here is the Vivo V15 Pro. Add the new Snapdragon processor, 8GB RAM and Oxygen OS and voila the hype machine is in overdrive.

    On a whim, I pulled a Libra and got a XZ2 Compact. It’s weird to see such good performance from a small phone not named iPhone SE. I’ll be doing updates tonight (still on Oreo and April 18 security patch) and maybe slapping the BlackBerry keyboard and Hub later too. The Swift kb is beyond puny.
