  1. For running & the gym I just use these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Urbanears-Plattan-Wireless-Bluetooth-Headphones/dp/B00XQ37XR6 They're cheap, sound fine & are wireless. If you get upset with the sweat building on them, then just push kitchen roll on them afterwards to absorb the sweat. They're also load of those spot version things (in-ear with strap around back) which are the same. e.g.: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B072MXKRJ1/ref=s9_acsd_top_hd_bw_bH8tD_c_x_1_w?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-4&pf_rd_r=8ZCSMFAN7ZZAV7CK6WAQ&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=47084367-a6a8-5268-903f-2bef76b19d4a&pf_rd_i=4085751

    The Android Thread

    Totally agree with Todd. SD Cards are a real pointless ballache. And with the growth of streaming, no-one wants lossless anyway. You'd never have the bandwidth to download it. It's about finding the sweet spot. E.g. Spotify's Ogg Vorbis usage is actually pretty high quality, and it's extremely rare to find people who can here the difference at that bitrate with that format. And I still think you're missing the point about hardware design. By removing the 3.5mm they can make the devices thinner & use that space for something else (like battery), and without accessing the SD card they're also making a lot more use of the rest of the space for something else (like battery). Also, phone creators should add more battery.

    You're not the target audience. Same was iPhone. The iPhone7 (soon 8) don't have a headphone port but rather a converter. The pixel is a device for the top end so usually those users buy the top end headphones without wires as well.

    I'm confused. It's a method that should be private except it's called by the test?

    Election Means Election Chat

    No. But if someone said when you divorce that if you can't decide how to split up the wealth you both lose it all and live on the street and the state takes it all. You may decide to not divorce.

    Andy Rubin's essential phone looks good. https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/30/15717066/essential-phone-hands-on-photos-android-hardware

    Slept in a sleep clinic the last 3 nights. In there I was expected to go to bed around 9:30 and GTFO by 5:30. While cabled up. Was strange. On the bright side, I can customised my new mask to make it look like Darth Vader.

    It is a pretty obvious Horror film scenario. So makes sense.

    The Android Thread

    That's called unbundling. Actually it does make sense for when you have separate use cases and user experiences but occasionally combine the two. I actually quite like it. Apps like Foursquare are the ones that really didn't do it right for me, as I believe they separated 1 use cases into 2 apps.

    Agree with Myrrh. I use WhatsApp & iMessage because that's what everyone I communicate with uses. Occasionally people also communicate with me on hangout or messenger, which is why I installed the apps. But other than that, it's basically all the other 2. It's the same conversation we used to have about ICQ/AIM/Yahoo/MSN. Being idealistic around any form of communication is fair enough, but you lose out as a result.

    If you think you're already leading the team (it's pretty obvious when this is the case), then apply for the job and make that point. Otherwise you'll end up not having it on your CV, not getting paid for it, and doing it anyway. Make sure the rest of the team agree though.

    That's really cool. Thanks for that.
  15. Honestly I think it's more the ignored are rising up. A combination of many things. In both countries there are large numbers of completely ignored people politically.
