    I'm looking forward to news from the Geneva auto show. I really want to see what the new Volvo XC60 looks like!

    iPhone 8 is projected to be unveiled. Rumors are they're doing away with Lightning ports and introducing USB-C's to their phones, along with an OLED to do away with a physical home button, and a curved screen.

    Honestly, if they call themselves innovative doing this, there will be some major rage. And if they don't call themselves innovative and people still complain that "Apple finally caught up to the times," consider this, would you like some newfound technology in some device when all the kinks haven't been worked out yet?

    Apple has never seemed to be skilled at implementing new technology as it becomes readily available. However, what they are skilled at is implementing new technology when it is ACCEPTED by the CONSUMER.

    And that's what I love about Apple. They seem more consumer focused as opposed to focusing just on the numbers (except for the iPhone 7, that shit just cannot be explained.)

    I don't want to have to deal with passive aggressive bullshit today. It seems like every day now for what feels like a week, I get snide comments from someone.

    Today, it was them telling me I'm being really loud---since I'm still sick and I can't got a minute without violently coughing, like that's my own da!mn fault. Yesterday, they jumped down my throat over me washing dishes; when I said I'll get to something in a moment, since I barely turned the water on. They told me to stop getting hostile with them,when I was being casual. When I reminded them that being sick has made my already bad hearing worse, they told me to stop making excuses. What the fuck.

    I dunno. This shit sucks. If I talk to them about it,they'll either justify it or try to apologize but do it again...or turn it on them with the "Oh, so I'm not allowed to talk in my own house now" stuff.

    Why would I waste my time studying for a test in a course that means fuck all when I know that I won't get any higher than a 60 anyways? Didn't know it was possible to care this little about school anymore.

    Some asshole cut me off earlier because his lane ended. For a second there, I thought I wasn't going to be able to take my hand off the horn.

    Erm, hi everyone. It's been a while. Like almost 2 years since I last logged in. Honestly forgot about this site until I was going through my old phone. Anyway, wow, I recognize exactly very few of you :lol:

    Ummm... last time I was here, I think I was at University. Since then, I've dropped out, started work at a restaurant, completely detested that job, moved to a local coffee shop, loved that job, gotten let go and started working as a delivery driver for a local sammich shop.

    Also, after a lot of talk with doctors and therapists and other super smart people, I came out as Transgender, 2 years ago now, and have been on HRT for about a year now. Ummm it's been a journey honestly. And I'm surprised to have made it to this age, given university and the first job and all that fun stuff.

    Honestly, dunno what else to say, so umm... hey, I'm still here. Sorta. Kinda. Might drop in once in a blue moon or so

    Thankie, thankie very much :slight_smile:

    Ok, probably a strange question, but has anyone else not been able to fall asleep because they were craving a certain food item?

    Like last night, I could not drop off to sleep because I kept thinking about grilled cheese sammiches? No idea why at all, but just, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

    Story of my life. I can't sleep on an empty stomach, and it gets so much worse when I'm craving something.
    ...Honestly still want McChickens...Curse you, McDonald's, for having an all day breakfast menu, but not having your main menu until 10:30 am.

    I've always been an Android guy, but I'm curious to see what Apple comes up with -- I expect something less iterative than usual for their tenth anniversary.

    Switching to USB-C would definitely be a great move, but I'm highly skeptical that they'll do that and lose all the licensing revenue they get from the proprietary Lightning connector, plus I could see that enraging anyone who purchased expensive headphones specifically for the iPhone 7. It would make me more likely to consider buying one though.

    At the moment I have a Moto G (3rd gen), and the battery life is great! For normal use, it can easily go for 48 hours without me having to recharge it. It's quite the improvement on my previous phone.

    Finally a real major scandal has hit the Trump White House: Jeff Sessions talked twice to the Russians during the campaign and lied about it during his confirmation hearings.

    Lucky. I just charged mine and have dropped 10% in 17 minutes. Definitely a hardware issue, not sure how much luck I'm going to have getting a replacement since I'm out of warranty though.

    Yeah, it definitely looks like a hardware issue. That's too bad. Can you upgrade your current phone (by chance)?
