  2. I've been following a lot of Zenfone 9 news and discussions. I don't need the very best camera on my phone but it needs to be good. Posts like this concern me with multiple reviews mentioning somewhat blurry photos on anything less than ideal lighting conditions. Could this be fixed with a gcam port? Maybe? Who knows. It feels like the hardware itself should be more can capable. Is this a software issue? ASUS releases bootloader unlock tool, firmware, and kernel sources for the Zenfone 9 is good news because that could really encourage 3rd party software support from groups like LineageOS which could quickly address the somewhat limited software update support Asus has announced. At this point I'm probably going to wait until we get a bit closer to the Pixel 7 launch (first week of October) but I will be seriously considering the Zenfone 9 since there are a lot of things I like about. One of the things about the Pixel 7 that I keep thinking about is that there are zero guarantees that they have been able to address the reception (modem), overheating and poor fingerprint sensor issues from Tensor 1st gen (example).

  4. Currently reading A Little Hatred (The Age of Madness #1) by Joe Abercrombie. About half-way into it. I have some mixed feelings about this book. The book starts out with what feels like a crazy pace, introducing many different characters in rapid succession, which left me feeling like I spent 100 pages just trying to keep track of everyone's names. Then there are also parts which had so much back-and-forth dialogue that it felt like I was reading a script. I find myself curious about where some of the plot points are moving the story so I will definitely keep reading but if this starts feeling difficult to read then I might drop the series.
  5. imdb - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5645432/ Watched 3 episodes so far. It's pretty easy to sit through and the premise is OK I guess but the action scenes are kind of sad. You can see some of it in the trailer. They are trying to portray a 72-year old Jeff Bridges as physically dangerous. It's hard to take seriously in a show that is trying to set a very serious tone.
  6. Cautiously optimistic. Disney doesn't get more than that these days.
  7. Take all the plot elements from season 1 and change out all the nouns and you get most of season 4 (minus the filler). Everything feels recycled. What is the point?
  8. FCC leaked Zowie's first wireless mice. Looks like they are first adapting the EC series. Some people are pretty excited. As usual Zowie is incredibly late to the party. https://zowie.benq.com/en-us/mouse.html I would like to see them adapt the ZA series.
  9. Having read the sandman comics I have to say that I will definitely check out the series but that trailer concerns me. Sandman should be slow. Limited action. Dialogue heavy. Playing with big ideas. That trailer almost feels too much like a typical superhero thriller comic book dr strange stuff.
  10. full article - https://www.strongerbyscience.com/research-spotlight-lifting-longevity/ meta-study - https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35228201/ The full article and study do bring up some possible caveats but the general message is for anyone focusing purely on the basic health benefits of exercise probably don't need to budget as much time (per week) as they think.
  11. 3 episodes into Season 4 There are some possible directions I think they could go with this that would be mildly interesting but.... a lot of those possible directions, and even a lot of what has already happens, make the previous seasons seem somewhat pointless. There seems to be a lot of ideas and content just getting wholesale recycled. Are they running out of ideas? There is supposed to be ANOTHER season after this one? Why? What is that one supposed to be? Terminator Salvation the series? I'll keep watching this show for now but only very casually. This shows has basically lots its "magic" for me.
  12. Kind of how I feel too. Filtered microcenter link: https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?Ntk=all&sortby=match&N=4294966937+4294807587+4294808775+4294808774+4294806313&myStore=false EDIT: Note there are 10gb and 12gb 3080 cards.
