    Just landed. The fire burned 4000 acres near our house. Roads are still closed. It's going to take a while to get home. Damn.
    Whoa. I also hope that everything will be okay.

    Updates have been interesting so far...just got the September patch for the carrier branded V40 and it looks like Android 10+ EMUI 10 is imminent for the Mate 20 Pro.

    I cannot wait until Monday, when I'll walk more dogs. There are many new arrivals at the kennel. Hopefully, many of these cute dogs will already be adopted before I arrive on Monday. I'm sure I'll meet some new dogs on Monday.

    So a quick update on my phone.

    Yesterday I decided to do a complete refresh of my phone. I'm not sure but something didn't seem right so I thought that was the best thing to do. It may have been a GCam port I tried or possibly something else. In any case I did the reset from PC.

    Overall it went well aside from me not backing up a couple of things prior to doing the reset. Not a big deal.

    Android is still a bit messy when doing a restore. They really got to fix that. I also hate that Sony turns on NFC automatically.

    Overall things feel a lot better and on top of thati was surprised to find Wifi calling on my phone! I'm pretty sure it wasn't there before.

    So overall pretty pleased with the result. I'll be curious to see if the camera works a bit better. Fingerprint scanner is still as pain though. I really miss the power button combo.

    Today we're heading into Paris for as vegan fest. Not sure what pictures I'll take.

    We're also heading to a shopping mall in hopes of seeing a Sony Xperia 5 in a different colour than black.

    My wife is thinking about the red bit still isn't sure about the phone in general. Not because she doesn't like it but because of the size.

    You should. If you have been to this region (South-East Asia) all the place feels similar geographically but different culturally.
    The food here has been really great so far and the coffee... amazing!! From the street vendors, to the cafes up to the high-end franchises.. gotta try them all!!
    Another week to go...

    Thinking about upgrading my Asus T100 so I can start to get a few things done. Was looking at the Surface line a bit after I thumbed through the Asus stuff and was a bit lukewarm with what I saw.

    Likely a Surface Laptop 2 (i5 256GB model). While I liked what I saw in the Surface Pro line, I don't use the T100 in tablet mode once I switched over to an Android tab as media consumption. If I can get one for $700, that would work as I know I'll keep it for a few years (T100 is 6 years old).

    Saw the Xperia 1 in person yesterday. As a guy with big mitts, I can say it felt weird. The width felt fine and I could hold the phone in a normal fashion and easily reach the top 2/3 of the display with my thumb. It's when text input becomes necessary that the proverbial monkey wrench makes its presence felt. I can't remember if the keyboard can be slid across the display on Android like you could with Windows but that would be a problem with me. I can only imagine how this would affect a woman, unless she's Elena Delle Donne.

    Search is still being expanded. Looks like the Matebook is on the list. We will see what comes of it. I would prefer USB - C so I'm not running around with a ton of different chargers.

    Thanks for the tip, just researching and not looking to make a purchase today. This looks like it's a good base and when you upgrade the RAM, it runs better.

    If I browse at the high end stuffs:

    Surface Laptop gives me the USB A port (I got a mean USB hub that runs swell on the T100 to give me port access) at the cost of the proprietary charger

    Huawei Matebook X Pro gives me USB-C and the USB-A the cost of the geopolitics and the Matebook 13 gives me a cheaper, smaller version at the cost of geopolitics and a loss of the USB-A port.

    Asus gives me all the ports I want but ain't a touch screen. The Dell stuff or HP don't interest me.

    Good thing I have time to decide. If I were guessing, it's between the Matebook 13 and the Surface 2 laptop.

    Well, I got a new toy, one which none of you would expect. It's a blue Samsung Galaxy S10+.

    The microphone on my LG V20 bit the dust, so nobody could hear me unless I used Bluetooth. I could've gotten a V50, but it was just as expensive as the S10+, so I opted for the Samsung, which is my first Samsung device. A Spigen clear case and a screen protector are arriving from Amazon tomorrow.

    I have everything set up on the Sammy and removed my account from the LG and did FDR (in the proper order).

    Now I just need to play with the camera. I'll do a mini review once I've used the S10+ more.

    Thanks! I love the size. It has no bezels, so its physical size is actually smaller than that of the LG V20.
