Hi folks,

Am I right in assuming there's currently no way to log in with an existing Convoi number? I use the app extensively on iOS but the beta seems to want me to sign up again.

I got an early invite, so here are some of my first impressions of #GoogleInbox. It feels a lot like everything Wave was trying to be, launched at a much more opportune moment. | http://marius.tips/1oR7JjJ

Pretty good depictions. Maybe a little out of date though.
 
It's amazing how accurate these are...

Hey guys—new to the community but not quite new to Fuji! ;) I recently wrote a review of my beloved #X100S that Fuji was kind enough to feature, and figured it might be of interest to the community. Looking forward to browsing through some of the spectacular photos here...http://mariusmasalar.me/fuji-x100s/

Couple of things...first of all, good on you for supporting real musicians and the appreciation of their contributions to soundtracks.

However...it may behoove you to do some research before opening up such a hostile line of publicity: the Game of Thrones solo line you replaced is recorded live, along with the majority of the original score's elements. In a multi-million dollar production like this, it's to be expected.

If you had simply said "hey, here's a cover of the theme with a cello performance I consider to be better" I would have no problem with it. I would personally disagree with Rubin's interpretation on account of the wildly over-romantic style here, which calls more attention to itself than it should and which conveys none of the stark purity of the original—but I would respect your cover.

You chose instead to lead with hostility over humility, making false claims against a very talented and respectable composer who has contributed much to the soundtrack world over the course of his career. And for what?

Shame on you for casting such aspersions without at the very least having the decency to fact-check and present your cover with some dignity.
