Welcome to the IHoP v.2

Recommended Posts

I did use an Apple desktop all last week. Truly was backasswards. 
 

speaking of my home PC runs windows7 and I’m being forced to update. As they are no longer offering support come the end of the year. So looks like planned obsolescence is forcing me to spend money. MF’ers.

Side by side my personal iPhone understood my and my friends speech more than her pixel. Not enough it is worth bragging about here but I mention it now based on the "understand " comment. Do you mean the pixel is better at understanding actual voice to text or understand and fulfilling tasks?

 

Fully admit that Google might be able to do amazing things, as I have to ask Siri to open Spotify specifically instead of apple when I want tunes. That is dumb AF.  

Yes, way better at doing stuff.  Eats Alexa's lunch too.  Siri also doesn't understand as well...at least not my brothers.  We compare and laugh all the time.  I use Google assistant all day.  It dials my phone most of the time...

THats crazy. I have flown out there the last few times and was only about a $100-200 difference each time. Which easily equals out for me all things considered.

I was really amused by how small the Salt Lake airport was. I did not expect it.

The Sasqutch Mountains are gorgeous. Are you heading to Park City? 

Haven't decided where yet.  Someplace with lots of green runs :(  He has never ridden a board.

I haven’t been to Park City but believe has a good amount of green runs. Not really familiar with any of the others in that area.

I’d confused A. Basin and Cooper mountain when suggesting airports, Copper being great for beginners. A. Basin as well for that matter. The first is closer to DIA. The latter being equal distances between airports.

Just payed $400 yesterday for a round trip from Atlanta to Eagle/Vail for Christmas. Was $600 for the thanksgiving one from Memphis. Can be a huge difference depending on the day of the week and which airline.

Did some research quickly, Netscape browser is still out there.  But apparently, it won't be supported much longer.

 

Might try Maxthon again, or see about Vivaldi.  Chrome is just too heavy for the current work desktop, especially with BOINC running.

The irony in that is the Eagle/Vail is actually in Gypsum. Haha

Vail=billionaires (Aspen=millionaires for perspective) Guess they don’t want to fly into a town named after the dirt.

Being a phones only job is to transfer information, be it verbal written or otherwise. I have yet to do such a task on any brand phone that was quicker In regards to efficiency of motion.

If you have to move your thumb 2x vs 1x or worse 3x vs 1x it makes a big difference

Believe me I completely understand. Is painful for me to watch most people do simple tasks such as use their phone. 

my statements are based on that I am handed different phones at least a dozen times a day. The task is always to transfer an image from theirs to mine. On every device it is relatively the same amount motions. 

not that I am an Apple lover. As I fucking hated them with a passion most of my life. Based solely just on greed. But I can transfer an image in two clicks with airdrop. Do not even need to type in an email/Number. 
 

I say it is painful to watch because most people will literally back out of their photos and have to go to their address book and enter the phone number. Then find the picture, then send it. Not that any of that is the phones fault. 
 

so yeah, when their phone is in my hand, I either just click a single icon and send it myself. Or give them my business card with my contact info and have to walk away.
