I have ultimately decided to go with the iPhone 6 Plus. My rationale is simply that the two factors I care most about: camera and battery life, are slightly better on the bigger device. But I’m not entirely sold. I have a sneaking suspicion that I may change my mind when I start to use the thing day-to-day.
I really want to go with the iPhone 6+ for the same reasons, but I have a hard time justifying the massive size of the thing. I’m thinking the Apple Watch will make it a more reasonable purchase since you will be able to leave the phone stashed away more often.
The local chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local is holding its annual Farm to Fork extravaganza September 21, 2014. I went last year and had a great time checking out what the area had to offer in the way of fresh foods straight from the fields, waters and land. There was a ton of food and live…
We’re going this year. Anyone around here should really consider it.
“Give a man access to drones, tanks, and body armor, and he’ll reasonably think that his job isn’t simply to maintain peace, but to eradicate danger. Instead of protecting and serving, police are searching and destroying.”—Greg Howard (via eltigrechico)
Stayed up to see the entire Braves/Nats game. Last out came at about 2:30. It was actually a pretty good game until the 11th inning. Then the Braves did what they do best since the all star break: disappoint.
And no matter what I tried I couldn’t sleep last night. I think I got maybe 15 minutes? Maybe. Today is going to be awesome.
“Perhaps the only real issue I had with the beta — aside from the fact that it had to end — was the game’s story. After multiple binge sessions through the game’s early stages I still have no idea what Destiny is about. The world is an interesting mixture of science fiction and fantasy, and a Bill Nighy-voiced character in a cloak droned on for a while about the golden age of humanity and a giant orb in the sky, but it all just kind of washed over me in a wave of sci-fi gobbledygook. I know that I’m a guardian of some sort, fighting to save humanity from an alien darkness, but that’s about it — and thankfully it seems that I don’t need to know more to enjoy the game. Knowing the backstory of the aliens isn’t a prerequisite for having fun shooting them in the face.”—
I totally agree with this - after the beta, I don’t have a good concept of the players involved, but, I suspect that Bungie will make that clear with time. At least, I hope that they do, because the beta twigged all my rich world-building neurons, in the way that many of their early games did. I am very hopeful to better understand the Guardians, the Traveler, the speaker, etc. as well as the aliens.
This looks to be good fun, and I’m excited to see it.
