Good story. 
A little fish and chip shop in Lethbridge, Alta., on the brink of closing its doors is now flooded with new customers — and it’s all thanks to one very hungry, hungover man.

After downloading and experimenting with several drawing apps, I think I found a winner! Sketchbook Pro by a landslide.

So, a few days ago I mentioned that the auto-rotate and the auto-brightness on my Samsung Galaxy S5 had stopped working. Upon further inspection, doing a Hardware module test, and doing some reading, it seems that all of my sensors have failed.

I have read that some people assume it is an Android issue, with the Marshmallow update, but I have read that even with the old Lollipop update, people were having this issue.

I have come to the conclusion that it is not an Android issue, or a software issue, it is a hardware issue with the Samsung S5.

I have been with Samsung since my first S3, and I bought the S5 2 years ago. My contract is up in March, and I don't think I will be buying another Samsung device for this reason. I I loved the battery life, screen size, fingerprint scanner and other features, but all of the sensors failing have left me weary about buying another Samsung device.

Thanks Samsung, it's been really reals...Hello Nexus Marlin.

I've had 2 daily drivers over the last 6 years. A vibrant and a note 3. Used a note 2 for a while as a second device longer than the htc one x, and the Droid RAZR maxx..
I assume my next samsung phone will last me 3 or 4 years also. .

Venus and Jupiter over The Pacific
Yuri: "Venus and Jupiter in a close dance between the clouds over the Pacific ocean :) A view from Atacama desert. Look how close they are! We were very lucky indeed to witness such an amazing view! The planets looked like a pair of jewels surrounded by shiny clouds patched from both sides. I hope you'll enjoy the view."

"Alien Dreams"
"Shortly before astronomical dawn, a thin haze started to cover the sky, slightly blurring the stars. While I normally prefer the sharp and crisp stars of an absolutely clear sky, I kind of like the contrast between the alien looking foreground and the dreamy looking sky."

"The image was taken during my overnight trip to the White Pocket area on the Paria Plateau in Arizona. Two LED panels were used for Low Level Lighting of the foreground."

Map of Total Solar Eclipse Path over United States: August 2017
Would you like to see a total eclipse of the Sun? If so, do any friends or relatives live near the path of next summer's eclipse? If yes again, then you might want to arrange a visit for one year from today. Next year on this exact date, the path of a total solar eclipse will cut right across the center of the contiguous USA. All of North America and part of South America will experience, at the least, a partial solar eclipse. Featured here is a map of the path of totality, computed by eclipse expert Fred Espenak of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Many people who have seen a total solar eclipse tell stories about it for the rest of their lives. The last path of solar totality that included any part of the contiguous USA was in 1979, and the next two will be in 2024 and 2045.

reviewed in the last week
Was on a delivery and was told by the manager I wasn't allowed in their parking lot, and was asked to go around, which wouldn't have been a big deal but then he added unless I want to kill little children. That is by far, the rudest, most ignorant thing anyone has ever said to me. And seeing how I have 2 small children of my own, I did not appreciate the remark. When I confronted him about his remarks, he then brought my sick mother into the picture. I'm boycotting sobeys, and I hope everyone else does too.
