Went to the Guns N Roses Show tonight in Chicago and they have been selling a small number of lithographs at each stop this tour. They have all been pretty sweet so if you are going I suggest getting there early and trying to get one.

While this was a show I did not attend I love the look of this poster and the work this artist does is great. Including officially licensed Star Wars prints ( +Virginia Poltrack​ I'm pretty sure would love his work ) the artist is Steve Thomas and you can get his work at http://www.stevethomasart.com

Have been thinking of the last day or so that it is time for me to use these collection things and get back on Google+. Something I've become a big fan of recently is concert posters. Sometimes it is just awesome art and sometimes it is a way for me to remember that awesome show I was at or even a story around a show. So fair warning you'll start seeing some of my concert posters I own or just love in general shared here. A lot I have are Pearl Jam posters but there will be a few more sprinkled in.

Why doesn't Google build their smart replies into the keyboard? I feel like that would make hangouts just as "powerful" as Allo

The joys of new toys. I've been playing with #LeEco   #Le1Pro   lately. Interesting phone to say the least. So I guess we start off with one simple question.

Who is LeEco?
Well first off they were formerly LeTV. The name change is so recent the phone is technically the LeTV Le 1 Pro but might as well get with the times. Anyways, LeEco is pretty much the Netflix of China. They have a whole bunch of things to stream on the phone. They also manufacturer TVs and Streaming boxes from what I can tell. From what I've read online it sounds like they are planning on making their push into the US at some point this year? Could be wrong on that too who knows.

The Phone
Due to the fun of being a Chinese phone I'm going to judge this phone mainly on it's hardware at first and may do one of the software later. This phone has a very solid build nice metal reminds me a bit of an iPhone a bit of Samsung and a little bit of HTC.  It has the mute switch from the iPhone which I love that was always one of my favorite features of that phone I never got on Android. The speakers are pretty loud I can definitely rock out in my office a bit better at a lower volume compared to my Moto X. While the Moto X may have 2 speakers this 1 speaker beats it hands down. It does have a USB-C for the hardware which is good/bad at this venture in time mainly because it is a pain in the ass having to carry around an adapter which is provided and so is a USB-C cable. It has dual sim which is awesome because I can throw my fi sim card (it reads fi as T-Mobile) in there and my t-mobile one and get calls on each number and texts as well so it just makes life simpler. The camera takes fantastic photos I'll post more from it later but right now you can look at my dinner from tonight. The biggest flaw in the hardware in my eyes is the fact that there is hardware buttons on the bottom as opposed to the normal android software buttons. They also took the liberty of switching them around the back button is on the right and the recent apps button is on the left.  It has been a week with this phone and there is still much more to say but I'll cut it short this time. Feel free to ask question in the comments. Point is I'm mainly liking it with some big exceptions on the software side though. More on that soon.
