Well... I was only able to test the maps app (one way) on this build, and that is it
Because the day after installing this build, I drove down to the Florida Panhandle for a meeting on the beach with a State AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) for a projection I am working on. While waiting for my contact to arrive, I noticed that a pelican was tangled in some fishing line and unable to fly, or swim. People were scaring it, and you could see it was in distress I partnered up with the lifeguard (whom, had a knife), a guy and two mid-aged women on the beach, we slowly circled the entangled pelican that was on the sand at the waters edge - the lifeguard and other guy (that was in a bathing suit) were in the water, the ladies on left and right of shoreline, me (dressed in new $300 laced-up boots, and cargo shorts) on the sand, front and center. As we were at a do or die moment, the pelican managed to get back into the water, about 3 feet out, just enough that my boots were in the water - I had tasked myself with holding the pelican, and its beak, while the lifeguard would cut the line, and the other guy untangled the fishing line from the wings, feet and neck for the lifeguard to cut. I had to make the first move to get to the beak, and as I did a wave came in a drenched my shorts above the cargo pockets....you can see were this is going, I knew my 950XL and wallet were in my pockets, so with one hand I grab my phone and handed it to one of the bystanders. Long story short, we freed the entangled pelican, boy was he/she happy (come to find out the pelican had been entangled for about a week - COME ON PEOPLE! where's your compassion), and... "my phone is toast".
Ordered another 950XL, should be here Tuesday, or Wednesday - I hope
Did you leave feedback on this issue?
Seriously, though, good on you for making a difference.
