    Can we please, please FUCKING PLEASE keep all the political nonsense to the designated thread? I’ve never saw a group of people so dead set on turning every topic into a political discussion.

    I would have had a truck if I thought the price was sane. Any perceived truck tax be damned.

    the amount of people with 1/2 tons towing a utility trailer full of stuff because the don't want to/dont't know how to open their body coloured tonneau cover is staggering. trucks are so watered down these days for being an actual "truck".
    i went and got a 1/2 cord of wood the other day in my Dodge 8' bed and the guy was shocked to see such a huge box on a truck.

    No he knew people needed trucks for work and do jobs not for a tax grab but nice try.

    Since I got this off track let me get it back on track with this :hsugh:
    Got this in the mail today, odd timing considering it was my "Fuck you Bill B &Justin T ":finger: Purchase. Not as high quality as my AR-9, that they banned, but it is close and will do the job I wanted the AR to do.
    My wife looked at it and said it looked like an AR-13 :lol:

    It's been interesting watching you slowly evolve from the guy always interested in the new phone tech to basically adopting the senior citizen technology starter kit :rofl:

    I can't say for Cheddar, but I went an iPhone route from the aspect of working with BS all day in optical backhaul where decisions get made that mean stuff doesn't get done in a standardized way on a regular basis... my Note 9 was getting old and the battery shitty, so I just wanted something that worked without me fucking with it constantly.

    Do you hear yourself talk... :rofl:

    The M1 chip that powers all of the devices Cheddar just purchased (I’m assuming he got the M1 Air) is the most significant change in compute technology in a long time. The processing capability of the M1 architecture has changed the industry.

    I looked at the ip13p. Maybe if it had usb-c. Actually found one person who wanted to trade for my S21 Ultra, but he backed out last minute. Tempted to see how green the grass is.

    More the app ecosystem on one versus the other, not the actual functionality of the phone itself.

    Surprised that's still a thing. Are there apps you can't get on Android but can get on iPhone?

    Which apps? I don't think I've encountered any yet. I think maybe a weather app but I can't remember what it was called.

    For me personally, there are some photography apps unavailable. But everything generally works better with iOS as you only have to support so few models vs Android.

    I've read notifications are a pita on iOS though. Getting better but no where near Android.

    That's not really true honestly. When you code an app in Android, you don't do anything device specific. They've done a really good job with the SDK making it device independent. If you find an app on iPhone that isn't available on Android, it's usually a case of the developer not wanting to invest the money in maintaining a separate code base for an Android app. Apple customers tend to spend more money so when deciding which platform to go with, that often sways the decision. It sucks that we've ended up in a place where apps are locked to specific platforms. These companies should be forced to decide on some standards and stick to them.

    Yes, its better than it was, but still not as good. Take lightroom mobile for example. Runs a lot smoother on iOS than it does on Android. Things are just better optimized. Is that the case across the board, of course not. And Im sure it goes the other way for some some apps as well.

    So funny. I was going to point out my own experiences pushing and watching iOS vs Android development. iOS is always a relatively smooth path to market while Android is a mess of hardware discussions but I work at the company that makes Lightroom so maybe it's an Adobe problem. :D

    Yeah, all that "abstraction" that makes it easy to develop for any Android device just hides the issues, slight incompatibilities, bugs, etc you get when it runs on those thousands of combinations. There is no world in which developing for a tightly controlled OS/Manufacturer is not a smoother process with a more stable/consistent product than developing for an entire eco-system of god knows what hardware and software with a façade out front. Suggesting otherwise is trolling or fanboi talk.
