I'm Going Full Microsoft

I don’t know what happened in the past week, but something hit me, and I started to really get into Microsoft services. In order:
  1. I use OneDrive for everything, mainly because Windows Phone backs up all my photos to it, so I use it anyway.
  2. I put all my songs on the XBOX Music app thing.
  3. I’m using a lot more Metro apps than before.
  4. I’m using Bing as my default search engine.
  5. And this one might shock some people, I’m using Internet Explorer.
You’re probably wondering what drugs I’m on to be using IE and Bing.
First of all, I don’t do drugs. Second of all, IE is not as bad as you think. Okay, that makes it sound bad. It’s very good. And it makes text look really smooth on any device. And it’s nothing like it used to be. It’s much faster and just does things really well. So honestly, give IE a good try, as long as it’s IE 11. I can’t really speak for anything else.
Oh and Bing is honestly just as good as Google. Much more cleaner. Although I’ll admit, sometimes the results aren’t as good, it’s still much more pleasing to the eye. That, and I get free money to Amazon through their rewards program. I’ve even shown some people side-by-side results of Bing and Google, and most of the time, they pick Bing.

Don’t be closed minded, and give Microsoft a fair shake. They’re not that bad.

Piratz Tavern has Closed, and I'm Glad

If you've ever seen the show Bar Rescue, you know that in most episodes, bar owners are decently pleased with the renovations that happen at the end of the episode. Understandably, some of the owners aren't pleased because they loved the bar they had, they just wanted it to be successful. To those owners who quietly took down the updates, or even kept them, that's cool. It's your business, do what you gotta do. One episode in particular did more than just some updates, however.

In the episode, a pirate bar in a corporate part of town in a state without an ocean called for help to Jon Taffer. Apparently, a bar with a pirate theme and a complete staff of costumed pirates in a state not known for pirates doesn't work very well, and the owner was over $900,000 in debt. Taffer found the usual mistakes: bland drinks, bad food, and cocky owners. When Taffer suggested to move away from a pirate theme to the owners and bartenders, it was like he suggested they cut their arm…

LG V20 vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 7

I showed up to the T-Mobile store on launch day of the Note 7. I waited in a line of 7, which the T-Mobile folk claimed was the most they'd ever seen for any launch. I intended to the get the blue one, but I settled for the silver one. Afterwards, my experience was alright, this is it. This is the phone I intend to keep for a while. And it was just alright.

When I first switched from the iPhone 6 Plus I had, I intended my next phone to have more useful features. Sure, the iPhone was great, but there was nothing special about it. So the next phone I got was the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Had it not been for the lackluster battery life, it was great. I loved the S Pen, I thought the IR Blaster was convenient as hell, and I just felt like I could do what I wanted with the phone. After a few months I wanted to find a suitable replacement, and I went for a Samsung Galaxy S6 Active. That was great too, better battery life, still had the IR Blaster, but it was noticeably slower. Then I got …
