Not exactly mesmerizing. Honestly it sounds like galaxy has become more innovative than Apple. The X model basically looks like a galaxy now.

Samsung is made in Korea, and Vietnam (mainly, but they have plants all over, including China).

Sony does a lot of manufacturing in Japan.

LG is primarily Korean as well.

HTC and ASUS use Taiwan factories.

And of course, some Blackberries still get made in Canada.

Thanks Tweaky that helps a lot

May finally be coming to the day where I let Apple go. I had a MacBook but it's so old now. I really don't need the link between the two anymore. And I've heard from numerous people that the Galaxy has passed Apple by.

I'm not sure how android's music works. I've invested so much time burning my extensive music library (CDs well over a thousand of them) to iTunes, I cringe at the thought of not being able to use iTunes on a mobile device now.

Stupid question, but does iTunes work on an android easily? I wouldn't think so...remember hearing at one point that it was a complete pain in the ass to load more than a few songs but stuff changes.

I'm not certain but you should be able to convert the files and then put them on your phone that way. You might be SOL on purchased iTunes music though

I just dislike the Android OS more than anything else. The phones and their specs are usually up to par or even slightly better than iPhone (though the leaked benchmarks on the iPhone X are damn impressive)... the OS is just so far behind.

And before somebody jumps on me not being used to Android... I've used one as my work phone for 4 years now. I'm pretty well versed at this point. iOS >>>> Android

I'll always be an Android guy. iPhones feel nice in the hand but that's about it. I had the Iphone 4, and though it was nice, I ended up going back to Android. There's just too many features that I use on a day to day basis that Apple doesn't have.

Not bad, not bad.

I picked up a ticket to see Arcade Fire in KC in October. First time seeing them, but I've dug enough of their stuff since they came onto the scene that I figure "Why not see them at least once?"

nice, I saw Arcade Fire about two years ago. My girlfriend was sick and none of my friends could go so it was the first (and to date only) concert I've ever been to by myself, but the show was amazing, without a doubt one of the best concerts I've ever been to.

Right now there's only a handful of bands/artists that I'd see over and over again, and they are:

McCartney
Red Hot Chili Peppers
U2
The Killers
Metallica

So who knows, maybe they'll get added to the mix. I'm looking forward to it, then again I didn't have anything against Reflektor or Everything Now like some other fans did/do

First world problems.

I bought a bag of coffee yesterday and my grinder died. So now I have to spend more money on a grinder to drink coffee at home.

I used an iPhone for about 4 years before making the switch to Android (Blackberry Priv), and I can confidently say that I will never, ever go back to iPhone unless something happens where Android phones cease to exist.

Was totally going to bite the bullet and buy a new Avs Adidas jersey, but unfortunately they only ship within America.

Probably better to wait and hear how the quality of them is + maybe a discount will pop up.

I try to take care of my grinder. I don't use it as often as I'd like, but when I do...

I keep grinding up my tea and then it all disappears in little fires. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
