    I like the dynamic range and colours of the gcam but it's let down by the N8.1 small sensor.

    Just watched the second episode of L.A.'s Finest. It's a pretty well made series.

    Those are great photos, especially since I really like trains.

    I should point out that I've been shooting in auto mode in tricky conditions. Also I'm using a 4:3 mode at the max resolution most of the time.

    I've been trying not to edit the photos but I need to. I'm doing my best to not over edit. It's easy to get carried away.

    Needless to say I'm still getting used to the camera.

    So here's some more.

    It's interesting what's going on with the Pixel 3. It's holding its value in a strong way for a phone that didn't sell much. The issue is that the market is flooded with 64GB models. I kinda would be interested in a Pixel 3 on the cheap but only the 128GB model.

    I don't think it's a bad phone. In fact, if they had gone to this design for the Pixel 2, people wouldn't have complained as much.

    So I got a second set of tools. Gonna try to see if these have the y tips I need to get into the Gear Sport. I think that at this point, the Gear Sport is a slightly better daily fit for me. I may get a S3 Classic to pair with the Mate 20 Pro.

    I still plan to keep my Wear watches, though. I want to pair one Wear and one Gear to my two primary devices. I like my OG Huawei Watch as they got the styling right - big screen, thin bezels in a small body. I love the Falster's minimalistic and subtle but very versatile design (if I didn't like the design for the Q Explorist so much, I would have eaten costs to upgrade to the Falster 2). I love the fact that I don't have to me kind to the Watch 2 if I want to go work out - I did the City Challenge last summary and while my Fitbit Alta still bears the scars of the event, my Watch 2 looks great.

    I just think that Wear OS got to a point where design wise, there are some really nice choices. The SoC situation is just garbage right now. How I would kill for a chip on the 10nm process for better battery life.

    Also, the tiles idea is good, BUT Google has to be careful for some redundancies. You should be allowed to remove the assistant page to the left to give more access to tiles that way. I also think there should be a cap of 4 tiles on each side to minimize the scrolling overload - something I dislike with the Tizen setup. Also, they really needed to develop that assistant pane. I'd love to see voice assistant integration to tile level tasks. The chip isn't efficient enough and the OS still needs to move you around in less steps.

    There is stuff here but I feel it'll die on the vine.

    While I appreciate your righteous indignation, I posted here to show that...these are the types of clients I work with. I've gone to housing court with and for clients. It's a very eye opening experience.

    If it makes you feel any better (or worse based on perspective), at least it appears she's not in a public housing (NYCHA) apartment. When the repairs go awry in their buildings, it's WAY worse than this.

    So the second set of tools are a bust. I'm wondering if I should just eat the cost and get another gear sport. I don't want to, but I don't want to ruin the screws further. I need to sleep on this.

    Wow! That's really horrible that private landlords are able to get away with that crap. I know public housing sucks everywhere, but I had no idea how bad private landlords could be and get away with it.

    That has to be very hard for you trying to help your clients but getting nowhere due to the court system's inadequacies.

    Are these rent controlled apartments? The reason I ask is because I know a lot of shady and illegal doings have gone on in order to force out tenants, and then sell the buildings to guys like Jared Kushner who renovate the property and raise the rents so that only rich people can afford to live there.

    Like many others, I fight the fight with the clients the best way I can, Laura.

    Yes, there is a list. For more fun, look at the evictions list embedded in the article and tell me if you keep seeing any common landlotds between both.

    Here's the thing, it cuts both ways when you have garbage tenants and slum landlords.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/17/n...mentsContainer

    NYS just passed rent reforms, leaning more in the direction of tenants. One of my colleague is a uber small landlord - two apartments. She's got both tenants who are problems, destroying properties and costing thousands of dollars in repairs. Of course, one has been delinquent in rent for about 8 months and she's taken him to housing court.

    A very complex issue, to say the least.
