New Video - OnePlus 3 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 7

http://youtu.be/gW5Z8IrrLEc - The OnePlus 3 is still a fantastic phone, I've just been wooed by the Note 7 with its S Pen, waterproofability, edge screen, and TouchWiz! I've said some angry things about Samsung in the past, but I gotta say, this is a great phone. If you really want to pay the premium for it, it's definitely worth it, but the OnePlus 3 is the best flagship phone for the best price. Hardware-wise, they perform the same. Camera-wise, the OnePlus 3 has a nicer front-facing camera, but the rear-facing camera on the Note 7 is phenomenal. This phone feels so great in the hand compared to the OnePlus 3. Battery lives are similar, I want to say with heavy use the OnePlus 3 might get an hour better battery life, but they're very close, but with Samsung's extreme power saving modes, I feel more comfortable with the Note 7. Software-wise, I've been won over by TouchWiz. It used to be ugly, but it's really elegant now. Samsung tends to do more common-sense gestures and placements of buttons than vanilla Android. I just do not understand why there needs to be a Samsung version of the alarm clock, calculator, browser, and photo gallery. The Google ones are fine. Especially the Google keyboard. Samsung's keyboard looks nice, but it lags with multiple apps open and stops autocorrecting for no reason, so I'm glad the Google keyboard is just an option menu away. Otherwise, this is a phone worth the extra money IF you want extra features and Samsung baggage. The OnePlus 3 is a fantastic flagship for a great price with vanilla Android, which is what a lot of people just want. I just wanted to be able to brag that my phone can take notes while I swim.

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…

2013 Jeep Patriot Review

If what you're looking for in a vehicle is the most patriotic sounding car, look no further than the Jeep Patriot. Or an American Motors Eagle. Oh, if I could've been a car buyer in the '80s, the Eagle would've been my ride. And honestly, they have a lot in common: they're both car-based crossovers designed to give 4WD when you need it. The only thing the Patriot is missing are those sweet door handles and the gigantic windows. And wood paneling.

The Jeep Patriot was designed to be a baby Liberty/Wrangler for those who want better fuel economy in an SUV with a Jeep logo on it. In 2007 when the Patriot was released, there was no Renegade, or Cherokee to provide for a fuel efficient alternative, your other choices were the Compass, which looks like a baby Grand Cherokee, the tank Liberty, and the family-sized Grand Cherokee and Commander. Now that the Jeep lineup has the Renegade, Compass, and Cherokee, where does the Patriot fit in? Well, it won't for long, beca…

Jeep Patriot Base Model Questions

I have a 2013 Jeep Patriot Sport. The "sport" is Jeep's nice way of saying the buyer didn't pay a lot for this car, at least compared to what they could've paid. My particular Patriot has no power windows, locks, and mirrors. However, it does have:

Air conditioningLight up cup holders4WDSpeed sensitive intermittent windshield wipersThis thing that stops the car from rolling backwards when on a hill, which is nice with the manual transmissionA flashlight in the ceilingThe visors extendDecent four-door speakers Now, I'm not complaining, I bought the car because I like it a lot, I just thought it was funny how much comes standard, or can be optioned in besides power convenience.
