Like I mentioned on my post from yesterday, the Pixel 2 XL could have been the best Android phone of the year if it wasn't for LG's terrible POLED panel. This phone has the worst viewing angles possible, turning blue to green haze at the slightest tilt.

Of course, Google can "fix" some of these issues via software by allowing a more vivid and saturated profile, but it still won't eliminate the poor quality of the display. Also, this is why color accuracy matters.

If you're planning on upgrading to the Pixel phones, I'd suggest you pick the lil' guy over the 2XL.

How Will AI Handle Moral Choices

"Last year, researchers at MIT set up a curious website called the Moral Machine, which peppered visitors with casually gruesome questions about what an autonomous vehicle should do if its brakes failed as it sped toward pedestrians in a crosswalk: whether it should mow down three joggers to spare two children, for instance, or veer into a concrete barrier to save a pedestrian who is elderly, or pregnant, or homeless, or a criminal. In each grisly permutation, the Moral Machine invited visitors to cast a vote about who the vehicle should kill."

As noted, this weeks #SmackDown in Seattle saw WWE Champion #JinderMahal issue a #SurvivorSeries challenge to WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. The Beast and #PaulHeyman will be on Monday's #RAW from Green Bay to respond to the challenge. WWE announced the following on the appearance:

Brock Lesnar to respond to Jinder Mahal's WWE Survivor Series challenge on Raw

Jinder Mahal, you have Brock Lesnar's attention.

After SmackDown LIVE's WWE Champion threw down the gauntlet for a match against Raw's Universal Champion, The Beast Incarnate will issue his response to The Modern Day Maharaja next Monday night, live on Raw.

Should Lesnar accept this Champion vs. Champion Match challenge, the WWE Universe will bear witness to a battle of brand supremacy at WWE Survivor Series on Sunday, Nov. 19. How will The Anomaly respond?

Don't miss Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network!

A mist-covered damselfly on the shore of a small pond in northern Colorado, taken on a very foggy, chilly morning... If you zoom in, you can see the individual drops of mist on each one of her tiny leg hairs. :)

Skogafoss, Iceland

The famous Skogafoss waterfall on Iceland's south-coast. One of the more famous waterfalls in Iceland, and it's easy to see why. This 60m high waterfall is not just beautiful, it's easily accessible, and easily admirable from below and above. There's a legend here at Skogafoss that there is treasure buried behind the fall, in a cave. It's said that Þrasi Þórólfsson (one of the first viking settlers in the region) buried the chest here when he arrived.
