Long Train Rides….


I’ll Be Back…

It is back already. As soon as the first decent shipment of Galaxy Note 7 arrives per say to replace defective unit (says so American media exactly when iPhone 7 arrives) which owners vehemently refuse to part with the word is sales as usual begin! What happened to October 21? iPhone is one expensive item to sell and carriers have made money (ATT and Verizon) or lost (Sprint, etc) by how they position iPhone. I remember when Verizon finally picked up iPhone they had a huge banner in their stores and NO demos for a long time. They wanted their Droids which bring profits or Samsung or LG to sell versus the hyped device that ruins companies as insiders whisper. This trend to promote the competition (ATT carried every Windows phone they could etc) continues and as soon as the “bad” primary competitor to iPhone 7 lands it is “f” those people with questionable batteries whom return anyway and let’s sell this bundle and make money versus hold our breath over how much to pay Apple for loads of iPhone 7 and what to get back in return. Yep. They are back at it again. Business must go on. Anybody for Note 7? Everyone. 

The Best Thing Yet…

I agree! I am yet to try it but agree. The iPhone 7 Plus demo that I put into operation did demonstrate confusion as far as home button and I have to agree with news of what may go wrong.

I love the finger sensor of my Galaxy Note 5. I always hated pressing the home button so many times and dealing with swipe to unlock blah blah until only from curiosity I started using the fingerprint home button of Galaxy Note 5. It is the best thing that happened to me not so much for security but mostly that I touch and get to what I want. No swiping patterns or pressing. However, unless you position your finger as has been recorded and long enough it won’t work AND wet finger even slightly won’t do it. I may get to do it better over time but for now what is said about home button of iPhone 7 makes a lot of sense based on my way experiences on Galaxy Note 5 (which is probably a better phone. Lol.)

Widest Availability for iPhone 7? Huh.

I think my first launch was iPhone 3GS but somehow I say I have been to 5 iPhone launches (obviously more) and this is the first time no extra iPhones besides preorders were available to sell. Now they call the aftermath effect as? Widest Availability. I don’t even want to know what that means. Unavailability is what iPhone launches bring and iPhone 7 is yet the worst. The availability has improved? So they say….

Google Allo Arrives

50000 downloads? JK. It just got released. The only review I saw prior to this launch claimed Allo was useless. We will have to find out slowly. I cannot say I.care much for resident messaging app on my Galaxy devices and use Google Messaging instead and there is not much to say about the latter either. And I have had my share of messaging apps. Let’s see how Allo fairs slowly….

International Space Station LIVE

Recommended as top 10 Android finds last week with a whopping 10000 downloads. The reviews are very good if downloads are not much. Everyone loves it. I do too. For those times when your boring job like mine gets to be boring even by standards of a boring job. Take a look at view of Earth as ISS flies over live. 

Warning: at night is depressingly dark for those with seriously boring jobs worse than mine. Use during passes over day Earth or be disappointed. 

How To Be A World Ruler…

Photo cropped from Internet and not mine.

My favorite person in the whole world. Have no fear. Make the whole country have same haircut. There is politics for you. Why fake it. 28 websites? It probably feels just fine and normal in N Korea but from another place far away is so wrong and why do they put up with it! Again same here. United States population 500 million has 2 political parties. Yep. That feels so normal but from a distance other places would frown how do Americans put up with this b.s. How? They get used to it and eventually have no clue that a country cannot have two political parties AND represent the views and positions of its population. Same way nobody is alarmed about state of Internet in N Korea if you live there. American politicians cab learn from this man. Hillary has. She will contact the Aliens as soon as elected and settle this once and for all. That be equivalent of one haircut for whole country as N Korea does. Anybody else opting for political rule need to do likewise. One haircut makes for one Ruler. Alien meetings makes another? Anybody else wants to be rule the world. I read online Trump is a “celebrity businessman” and makes you think who is that in that photo up there. That is your Korean version of a “celebrity businessman.” He will nuke you if gets a chance and we have our own celebrity businessman here who will nuke them if gets his chance. Meeting with Aliens sounds like a good plan compared to alternatives.
