This is what my phone is rocking today. The stock 5.1 update was a terrible battery suck. We'll see how OMNI is with 5.1.1.

About a half hour later, 5.1 OTA on the N4 progressed to downloading.  That part is taking forever and a day too.  It's only 174MB ... this should be done in minutes on a bad day.  Looks like the update infrastructure can't handle the load.  Come on Google ... I expect better of you!

Saw a BlackBerry Passport in person tonight.  WTF were they thinking with that thing?  It's just weird and awkward and uncomfortable and ... sad.  It makes me sad that a Canadian company actually created that.

My question exactly. Why would they make such a thing?

Just flashed OMNI 5.1.1 to my Nexus 4.  Let's see how Lollipop is with my favourite (4.4 at least) ROM!

So far, so good.  Booted up smoothly, apps are re-installing.  Been a while since I've used Omni ... now to figure out the tweaking again!

Just got the 5.1 update for my N7. Hope it doesn't kill my battery life like the N4 update.

My battery life sucks since the 5.1 update to my Nexus 4. Used to go all day til 11pm with 40% left, now I'm doing good to have 20% by 9. May have to roll back to 5.0.1.

Anybody else win anything in the Oppo Find 7 Fiesta?  Didn't win the phone, but got a $100 discount code.  Sadly, tax season being very unkind this year means I get nothing.  Anybody want a code?

5.1 OTA is installing ... took a looooooooooooooong time to download that little patch.  Holy snap.  Let's hope the rest of the update goes smoothly.  I can't remember the last time I did an OTA on stock!

Soooooooooooooooo after a drive to Keewatin and back tonight, this happened. #schweenie #socute He's a dachshund-shih tzu cross.  We'll see if the child still loves him in the morning after he whimpers the night away.  First night away from mom and his 6 siblings!
