While cruising Polo Park tonight, I had the Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 dummy in my hand. I liked it. I liked it a lot. I think it's officially my top choice for a successor to my Nexus 4, unless by some miracle price isn't an object. In that case, the LG G4 wins right now. For the money, it looks and feels great. The +Android Coliseum​ review certainly didn't hurt my impressions any. If I needed a new phone today, I'd own it in the morning.

I love shortcuts.
 
Navigate Windows 10 with ease.
Most of Windows 10's keyboard shortcuts are the same, but here are a few new ones you'll need to learn.

Don't know much about the Huawei, and while the Edge is cool, the non-Edge S6 just doesn't feel comfortable to me.  I don't think the curves would fix that.  G4, G4, G4 baby!

Why has this taken so long for someone to make??  The only thing holding me back this afternoon is the exchange rate ... that takes it into the $40 range for a pair of 'em.  Still ... might be worth it.

Hmmm ... Windows 10 build 10240 installed this morning, no longer shows the watermark on the desktop with the build number or that it's a preview version.  Must be getting close to RTM! #windows10  #10240

I don't know why I've waited almost a year to do it, but finally decided to put Outlook to use on my laptop.  Took all of about 25 seconds to get my Outlook.com and Gmail accounts set up and working.  Just had to make a little tweak to some Gmail settings to allow access.  Easy peasy.  It's just a good, solid workhorse.  Wonder if I can get my work account running from home ... hmmmmmmmmmmm.... corporate has the security screws pretty tight, so I doubt it.

So, yesterday our TV bit the biscuit.  Had it on in the morning, took my daughter to something, came home, turned it on ... nothing.  Then it wouldn't power off without pulling the cord.  Ended up with a 50" Samsung SmartTV.  So far, pretty impressed with it.  It found my WD My Cloud NAS without me doing ANYTHING, and hasn't had the slightest issue with playing back ANY of my media files.  In fact, it's been smoother than Plex.  Well done, Samsung.

Pulling the pin ... downloading the Windows 10 preview to my main laptop to give it a go.  Yes, I DID do a complete system image to an external drive yesterday, just in case it goes poorly.
