    Put in an order at Canadian Tire for a bunch of the little things we didn't think about for the cottage. Almost right after that, I was making lunch and sliced my finger open and we realised we dont have any bandaids so ordered a first aid kit.

    Bunch of groceries. Paper towel is going mia in grocery stores again but finally got some today. Stocked up on stuff for the freezer so we can weather an isolation if we get locked down.

    Race Face Atlas bars for the bike and a replacement rear hub body. On the way I have upgraded brakes. Just need to replace the POS fork and I am done.

    Pixel 5 on contract with telus. First cell contract in over 15 years. It's not sitting well.

    I have the V8 and it's great except the little thin plastic wheels mark hardwood floors.

    Need the Dyson fluffy head for that.

    It will cost me $15 per month and I locked in at 20gb for 63 bucks. Unless there is a massive drop in data costs over the next two years or the P5 flops and Google does a massive clearance , I can't see it being a bad decision. I really wanted to go with an S20 but I was also considering a iPhone for some stupid reason. Did this jut to take away my choices.

    I have a Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G (quite a mouthful) and I'd rather a Pixel 5 tbh. The display on the N20 is incredible and the camera can zoom to the moon but the Pixel camera is still better and the the Pixel has Android 11.

    Pixel camera is rating below the iPhone 12 and S20 right now, but I've never taken a picture off my phone to be used for anything so I'm not really concerned. There's no zoom lens on the pixel but again I see wide angle as being used more than telephoto anyway. So really I'm just going with the devil I know.

    Cell phone prices and data caps in Canada make me gag.

    I got 20gb for $60 which isn't bad but I know in 2 years or so when 5G is here that will start to be worthless once websites start taking advantage of the faster data capabilities.

    I haven't broken 2 GB of monthly usage once the last few years. I use data whenever I am out, stream Spotify 100% of the time in the car, it just doesn't add up enough. Most places I go I end up on wifi, or I am not mucking around on my phone I guess.

    I understand it can be swallowed very quickly with video, but I don't watch much video on my phone. I just finished a project building software to monitor SMPTE 2110 uncompressed video and audio. A single 4K 2110-20 UHD video stream is about 20Gbps lol, at least we don't have to ingest that on our devices!

    Company phone is an iPhone 8 and as much as I hate it, it almost made me get an iPhone for myself just so I could get the imessages on both phones. I don't do personal stuff on my work phone so it's a pain carrying two phones.

    I'm rocking a pixel 4. THE WIFE rocks a new iphone. Not sure what it is, it's the newest model. She's always been android and she loves her new phone. I'm not a fan but I will say the battery life is impressive.

    But I'm too stubborn and faithful to android.

    Pixel 4 is supposed to have pretty shitty battery life. The 5 is supposed to be stellar.

    its not great. Thankfully I live at my desk with it on the charging stand most days, so its mostly a non issue. Was tempted to upgrade just for battery, but holding off until I need to or perhaps the Pixel 6.
