    That looks really nice. I hope you enjoy it, and I'm looking forward to your review.
    It's hard to give this a proper review because frankly, there's not much like it. WOA is in its infancy so there's not much to compare it to. The Galaxy Book2 this is replacing is the closest but they're different animals. Windows Hello works much better and quicker than the fingerprint scanner on the Samsung. I'm not one of those wacko kids who're always raging against bezels but in this case, the smaller bezels are clearly an advantage as Microsoft was able to put a bigger display within the same amount of real estate. Alas, size doesn't matter when it comes to display quality. The GB2 trounces any Surface Pro out there, it's that good.

    The typing experience goes to the X. I'm a two-finger typist on my best day but I really like the travel on this Type Cover as opposed to the Samsung kb. While the trackpad is roughly the same size, I prefer this one as the GB2's has some friction to it. Your fingers glide quite nicely on the Microsoft trackpad. The Slim Pen vs. the S Pen is a wash. The onscreen feel goes to the Pro X while the additional goodies Samsung baked into the S Pen are nicer. Software-wise, it's Windows 10 Home so move along, nothing to see here. Up until now, I really haven't noticed any advantage of 8GB of RAM over the 4GB on the GB2. I know it's there, I just haven't experienced any occasion where it would become apparent. So to sum it up, I paid $1,000 for a bigger display, more convenient biometric recognition and a much better keyboard/trackpad combination. Works for me.

    One of our rescue dogs is too old to climb the stairs anymore so they are all now just first floor dogs. Hope I'm not breaking any laws using a child gate for dogs. We don't even latch it since they don't seem to be able to defeat it. They can't push it open because that would trip the latch. Maybe if two got together and one pulled on it against the spring while the other went thru the gap but they aren't team players.

    Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite

    img_20200817_141700451.jpg

    Unlike most of my purchases, I gotta admit, I kind of didn't want to buy this. I'm currently rocking a Motorola One Zoom which is a great mid-range phone. I even got the nice bronze finish. Even with 4GB of RAM, the Zoom checks all of the boxes. Good cameras. Good screen. Decent processor. yadda yadda.

    But...

    I've turned my Go 2 into my daily driver. (My main PC is a Lenovo Legion but isn't my daily driver.) One of the more productive aspects I've been using is Your Phone. And guess who has an exclusive deal with Microsoft that makes Your Phone way better... >.<

    I wanted a nice Samsung phone but I also didn't want to break the bank. Because I had $250 in Best Buy credit - money I've been sitting on for a while because I traded in my Pro 7 i3 - the s10 Lite seemed like a good option. Good cameras. Good screen. Supports Links to Windows. I should be fine. Still, I don't feel like I was done with my Zoom, but it irks me that there's a key feature that I just don't get.

    Side note: Even though I don't have the spare cash, I for sure thought about putting a Duo on credit instead of getting the s10.

    My Zoom is just coming up on a year old and still works great. I'll probably ask my girl if she wants it to replace her aging Pixel 3.

    Something a bit different. I realized I need to sharpen my lawn mower blades and the sharpening wheel for my drill sucked. So I searched and found a great deal on an old Craftsman grinder on a stand. It looks really old (it is) and not as perty as me (ha!), but it works like a dream. It was hardly ever used and the older guy was happy to have it find a new home. I love finding deals on older tools that are still 100% usable and just as good as new stuff.

    TV in my home office decided to go schizophrenic with the picture, so time for a new one. If you need an awesome competitor to Amazon and others for stuff - try Abt (.com) out of the north Chicagoland area. They price matched and shipped overnight - it was awesome! I used to live up in the Chi area and I totally forgot about how amazing that store is to visit (it is really an experience). Anyone up in that area knows what I'm talking about. :)

    Purchase was actually $250 to have it removed. 60 mph wind took it down from a neighbor's tree. The tree guy removing it says the tree that "small branch" came off of is in bad health and won't survive the next one. That much wind is pretty rare here but the tree is big enough for the top to land on the other side of my house. Just don't tell my insurance or they will triple my rates. Acts of God are NOT the responsibility of tree owners but the victims. Am making sure I have proof the neighbor has now been informed of the situation and expert opinion the whole tree is at risk of toppling. Maybe that would legally shift some responsibility to them if it does.

    Table for a barren hallway upstairs, a fake plant that I can't kill since that area gets no sunlight, and a TP-Link Deco S4 whole-house mesh wifi system (covers all 3 floors really well).

    Latest purchase (and return).



    I own several digital picture frames from 8" to 15.6" and they all appear very similar to an actual picture from almost any angle. So, I decided to order this larger 17.3" model. I was dismayed to find it had an absolutely HORRIBLE display (see video). Different parts of pictures almost disappear as you walk past the display or view from different angles.

    I have only myself to blame for spitting in the eye of my guardian angels.

    I should have taken the hints. I ordered this and Amazon claimed it was lost in shipping. Curiously, they didn't allow me to request a replacement despite it still being available from the same (and only) seller. So, I ordered it again. That one still shows waiting to be shipped long after. So, I ordered a 3rd time from the same seller. That one finally arrived.

    I am returning this and cancelling the one I ordered long before that is still waiting to be shipped.

    This is getting ridiculous. For a long time I couldn't get one of those (terrible) digital picture frames for any price.

    Now I'm being buried with free ones.

    I returned shipped the one from the above post and got a refund already. Weeks ago, I got a refund on the one they lost in transit. Yesterday I got a refund on the one that showed still unshipped despite a later order already arriving. That refund came with an email saying I didn't have to return it. I sent an email back saying thanks for nothing [/paraphrasing]. 5 minutes ago, I got texts saying both (the one they lost in July, and the one that never shipped but I could keep) are arriving today via Amazon delivery.

    So, now I have two great free X-mas gifts to give someone I'd like to stick with a bad product. I will expect an equivalent dollar-value gift in return. Bwahahah.

    And here they are:
