My new food blog! Chronicling my quest as I cook my way through my own menu, plan my restaurant start-up, and simultaneously analyze nutrition, health, agriculture, and government food regulations in America. Fun, right? :-)

Sony Xperia Z review

I bought my Sony xperia Z on tmobile a couple weeks ago and so far I'm pretty happy with it.

Pros
-Blazing fast
-super crisp screen
-Feels great in my hands
-I like the UI much better than Samsung's
-The waterproof design makes the outside of the phone super sleek and stealthy looking.
-Camera takes incredible pictures!

Cons
-Glass front and glass back makes it impossible to quickly orientate the phone in your hand in the dark. Especially since the power/unlock button is in the middle on the side of the phone.
-Glass scratches very easily.
-screen brightness is weak compared to my GS2. I can't see my screen in bright daylight but I guess that's the tradeoff for having full HD resolution.
-speaker is garbage. Listening to music without headphones is unpleasant.
-speaker location is awful. It's completely covered by the ball of my hand when I hold the phone comfortably. Not even a slight clue of what Sony's engineers were thinking on this one.

All in all I love the phone. I really wanted the Nexus 5 but I bought this one 5 days too early :-( but I'm happy with it nonetheless. I definitely need to buy a case so I can tell which side is the front and I need screen protectors.

Went to a Unitarian Universalist church this morning to see what it was about. I definitely subscribe to their perspective of the world but it kinda reminded me of the camp from the movie Wanderlust.

In spite of that analogy I think the UU church is somewhere I'd go again. I love analyzing religious ideals with secular logic. In my opinion it strengthens the premise and purpose behind those values. I never liked the idea at religious churches that we are to obey the word of God for fear of hell. UU puts everything into a more logical, intelligent perspective for me.

I used to like the smell of Burger King but now it reminds me of eating hot mayonnaise on wet lettuce.

This past week I made a drastic career change... I went from a temp-to-hire making $31000/year packing shipments for an oil and gas company to selling Fords in Tomball. It was a slightly impulsive decision but I'm hoping it will work out for the best. I can't argue with the massive income potential though lol let's hope for the best. Training starts on Monday.

I've seen this 100 times before and never thought anything of it but cultured pasteurized milk seems to be a product of futility.

Got the motor out of the tC tonight. Time to swap out the trans to the new motor along with a couple other goodies and I'll finally have my car back! Making progress!

Am I the only person that thinks this is rude? Or maybe just ironic considering the lousy customer service here?
