Rumor is that Samsung will be quite proud of their flagship, charging iPhone-like prices.  For me, the Note 4 may be a better deal in a month or two.

More details surfaced today on Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 smartphone, including an unlocked price of about $780 for a 32 GB version, according to Samsung’s website in Spain.

I just hope it doesn't carry an iPhone price and a Moto X 2014 battery life.
This year at MWC, there's little arguing that Samsung failed to deliver on the hype. The Galaxy S6 is the most dramatic redesign the Galaxy S has ever seen... by David Ruddock in Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, News, Videos

I am shopping for a phone and the lack of a replaceable battery and no SD slot have made me pass on the GS6. The GS5 will be discounted soon enough and frankly that's more than enough phone for me.

They likely wouldn't help much tomorrow.  1 to 2 inches of freezing rain/sleet composite that will be the consistency of concrete and frictionless.

Having lived in the Nebraska most of my life, winter precipitation there was much easier to deal with.

#Memphis‬ area friends... update on the weather. Looks like freezing temps may arrive in Memphis later in the afternoon on Wednesday (later than it appeared earlier).

This would result in lower freezing rain accumulations. Sleet is still on, will likely see 1-2 inches before it changes over to all snow late Wednesday evening. We could see 1- 2 inches of snow by Thursday morning, overlaying the 1 to 2 inches rock hard ice/sleet aggregate.

Maybe we'll get in a full day of school on Wednesday. I really don't see how the Shelby County districts will have school on Thursday. This isn't the kind of stuff you plow.   My thoughts....
