Awesome Altered Carbon

i binge watched ‘altered carbon’ over the weekend since the weather here was crappy and it literally rained for the past 3 days straight… so it was a good weekend to just curl up on the couch and chill out.

anywho, don’t want to drop any spoilers or anything… but damn, that show was freak’n awesome! i was pretty much hooked after the first episode… not a lot of sci-fi shows like this around, so i appreciated that right off the bat… the special effects and overall quality was kind of a surprise too, kept finding myself watching and thinking “damn, that’s pretty cool” at some of the scenes.

just a heads up if you haven’t watched it but are planning on it — quite a bit of nudity and violence, so i wouldn’t watch it with little ones around… actually called my sister to give her a heads up after a few episodes since i remember her mentioning the show a few weeks back… good thing i did, too. lol

also watched that “cloverfield paradox” movie i kept seeing pop up in my twitter feed… pretty good movie, even if it did leave some unanswered questions which can be kind of annoying…. ugh, bastards.

iPhone X Cancellation?

Apple Leak Hints At Possible iPhone X Cancellation, ‘Batterygate’ Intensifies

It looks like there will be no iPhone X generations in the near future if rumors prove true. According to a popular Apple leakster, the tech giant’s flagship smartphone will soon be canceled due to a disappointing performance in the market.

Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst for KGI Securities, said the demand for the iPhone X is weak and will likely be canceled soon, as AppleInsider reported. Kuo believes that the “end of life” of the iPhone X is imminent as Apple is likely to cease production in the summer. In fact, Apple has already reduced production of its anniversary iPhone, according to the rumor. An estimated 18 million iPhone X units are scheduled to be shipped during the first quarter of this year.

The acclaimed analyst also said that the iPhone X is not performing well in China, where big-screened smartphones are a thing. The main reason why the iPhone X is not selling as expected is its design.

whoa… first i’ve heard of it, but i’d be pretty damn surprised if Apple cancelled the iPhone X after they seemingly doubled down on the whole design… i was seriously thinking of trading mine back in for an iPhone 8 plus, but kept going back ‘n forth on it and missed my return window… but oh well, i’ll deal with it… not really a big deal since i’m on that 12-month plan, so i figure i’ll enjoy the phone until the next one comes out and then decide what i’ll do next time.

still, i do find it rather surpising.

Netflix’s Altered Carbon

Netflix’s Altered Carbon Is Some Incredibly Hardcore Sci-Fi

A lot of the science fiction that’s appeared on TV over the years isn’t exactly what sci-fi fans would call “hardcore,” from goofy procedurals with light futuristic elements to animated comedies like Rick and Morty. Altered Carbon doesn’t have that problem.

Netflix’s latest original show throws so many far out sci-fi concepts at you in its first 30 minutes, let alone across the whole 10-episode season, that it’s often hard to keep track of what’s going on from one scene to the next. But for those who stick with it, Altered Carbon is an engrossing show with fascinating ideas that it sees through all the way to the end.

The core premise isn’t too hard to grasp: Thanks to an invention called the “cortical stack,” humans are effectively immortal. Your personality and memories–everything that makes you “you”–exists in your stack, which nests embedded in your spine. If your body (or “sleeve,” as the show says) dies, you can be “re-sleeved,” as long as your stack remains intact. Continue…

really looking forward to this one… first the godzilla anime, and now this… man, everytime i think about cancelling netflix, they come out with something i want to watch or checkout — damn them.

sat down and watched Bladerunner: 2049 the other night and i have to say… wow… was even better sitting down and watching it at home without some of the distractions that can come with seeing it in the theater.

Godzilla 2018

was kinda surprised and excited last night to see that the first part of that new godzilla anime is now up on netflix :)

was getting pretty late, so made a mental reminder to check it out this weekend… curious to chill out and give it a watch since i’ve been looking forward to it.

speaking of anime, my son was telling me the other day that amazon seems to have dropped that “anime strike” subscription bullshit, which is awesome news… so now all those new anime shows are available to you if you’re a prime member — niiiiiiiice.

CES 2018, Let’s Go!

Here Are the Things at CES You’ll Actually Want to Buy

Some gadgets work better in theory than practice. Many are concepts, designed more for the “whoa” factor or to make a point about the state and potential of technology in our world, than for practical use.

Here and there, though, a contraption that wows also works for everyday life. It catches you off guard with some capability you never thought you needed, or a level of customization or functionality you never knew was possible. Suddenly, you have to try it for yourself.

At CES, the exhibition halls are littered with tech that promises to track us, help us save money, time and resources and reflect our own lives back to us in ever-higher definition. They tap into trends of optimization — tailoring every aspect of our lives to our personal circumstances — as well as increasing peace of mind in a world where you can now answer your door or play with your pet, even when you’re not home.

nothing really here that made me go “whoa” or anything… with the possible exception about the part with the mobile gaming laptops coming out this year — if they actually perform pretty damn good, might be worth looking into.

aside from that, i usually only geek out over stuff like the new HDTVs… curious to see what they come out with this year, as i’m seriously thinking about maybe looking into getting a new 75″ 4K HDTV for the living room — if the price is right… speaking of which, i wonder if Vizio is coming out with a new kickass P-Series this year… and if so, if it’s worth waiting for.

Microsoft Edge for iPhone

Microsoft Edge for iPhone hits the App Store

Edge offers everything you would expect from a modern mobile browser, including a private browsing mode, voice search, and a QR code reader. It’s all wrapped in a user interface that will feel familiar to existing Edge users on Windows 10.

And that’s exactly who Edge for iOS is aimed at. Its biggest selling points are the ability to sync favorites, passwords, and reading lists between mobile and PC using your Microsoft account — and “continue on PC” functionality.

to be honest, i didn’t even know that microsoft was coming out with a new “edge” browser for iOS…. and yeah, the first thing that went through my head was along the lines of, “oh great, yet another effin browser to worry about! damnit.”

guess i’ll have to download it…

Cyber Monday Deals

Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals include Sony 4K TVs and Sennheiser headphones

The final stretch is still ahead; after Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend comes Cyber Monday, a time of massive online-only deals. Tech giant Amazon may have gotten into brick-and-mortar stores with its acquisition of Whole Foods in August, but it’s still keeping its online presence strong. Amazon is also running its Smile program for these deals, so you can use smile.amazon.com to donate 0.5 percent of your purchases to a chosen charity, a small but still helpful amount that might make the spending craze feel less awful.

Here are the best Cyber Monday tech deals that we’ve picked out so that you don’t have to scroll through pages of hairbands, pet food, and old films to get to them. And Black Friday deals listed here for Amazon devices and the Oculus Rift headset are continuing until midnight PST on November 27th, so they can be considered part of the Cyber Monday madness too.

well, here we are once again on the monday after black friday…. where you can find all these crazy awesome deals — right?

personally, i didn’t get shit this year on black friday and pretty much ignored it… i only got one thing and that was because i got an email from amazon and just happened to see it before deleting (the email storm was strong this year, geeeesh) and it was a deal they had going where you could pick three 4K UHD Blurays for $50… thought that was a pretty damn good deal, so i picked up ‘Star Trek Beyond’, ‘Man of Steel’, and ‘John Wick 2’ on 4K.

anybody get anything crazy good this year?

iPhone X ‘Notch remover’

iPhone X ‘notch remover’ now available in App Store

If you have a burning hatred of the so-called “notch” on your new iPhone X then boy do I have good news for you. Apple just approved an app called Notch Remover despite its urging of developers to embrace the notch by not masking it:

Don’t mask or call special attention to key display features. Don’t attempt to hide the device’s rounded corners, sensor housing, or indicator for accessing the Home screen by placing black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.

The app doesn’t remove the notch per se, it just makes the notch invisible by placing a black bar across the tops of images that you must then assign to your Wallpapers in the iOS settings. Nevertheless, the end result looks like a traditional unibrow status bar, instead of the two brows currently found at the top of the iPhone X’s home and lock screens.

In practice, the notch isn’t a problem in day-to-day usage, especially for people eager to justify their $1,000-plus purchases. So what’s another $0.99 for a silly little app that fixes a silly little problem?

personally, i think it looks better with this Notch Remover app, but that’s just me… might be worth a buck to try it out when i get my new iPhone X.

/adds mental reminder

This $150 mask beat Face ID on the iPhone X

Mazda vs. Screens

Mazda is downplaying screens to save its soul

Mazda is a small automaker. Last year, it made about 1.2 million vehicles, which doesn’t sound like an insignificant number. But think about how Audi made more than 2 million in 2016, many of them luxury cars, and it puts the Japanese automaker’s place in the automotive world into more perspective.

Which is why it has to think out of the box when it comes to new car designs. To that, Mazda has decided we’ve reached display overload. In the Mazda Vision Coupe that was released at last month’s 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, the company that has made driver-oriented cars such as the RX-7 and Miata sports cars wants to stick to focusing on drivers first, and dazzling displays secondarily.

just happy to run across something like this, being a mazda convert and fan myself… absolutely LOVE this new “vision coupe” they’ve shown off, and even though i know it probably won’t hit production… g’damn, i’d love it if they did and would totally trade in my MX5 for one ;)

iPhone X Cost Breakdown

iPhone X Component Costs Estimated at $357.50

Apple’s new iPhone X costs $357.50 to make, according to estimates sourced from TechInsights and shared today by Reuters. At an estimated $357.50 to produce with a price tag of $999, the iPhone X has a gross margin of 64 percent, higher than the iPhone 8’s gross margin of 59 percent.

i can’t help but raise an eyebrow and feel a little nauseous whenever i see one of these cost breakdown posts, especially regarding the iPhone… i mean, the profit margin on these is fucking sick pretty crazy.

that being said, i should be getting my iPhone X this week and i can’t wait to get my hands on it… i know it’s really silly, but i just can’t wait to send my nieces some silly animoji’s :)

Happy Halloween

just wanted to wish everybody a happy halloween :)

one of my favorite costumes i’ve seen so far in the office is one of the guys dressed up as a character from ‘Attack on Titans’ — how awesome is that? he said i was the only one around here that got / recognized it… haha

my son jayden and his girlfriends dressed up as Rick & Michonne from ‘The Walking Dead’ this year, which is pretty cool… kinda scary how well they pulled it off.

anybody dress up or see any really good ones so far?

PS. not sure i’m really looking forward to all the neighborhood kiddies again this year… was kinda rough last year, mostly because of all the damn teenagers.

PPS. left ;)
