Well two and a half weeks ago I finally put on my big boy pants and took Annette down to the local Apple Store... and bought two iPhones. That decision came about because of years of accumulated frustration with Android, Google and Android OEMs.
If you want my overall opinion on the iPhone experience, here it is: It works like it should. Which is a back handed way of saying that the wide variety of Android phones I have used over the years haven't worked that way. At some point as a consistent Android user you get so used to endless quirks and buggy behavior that it almost becomes some sort of meta game in and of itself.
Although this is mostly a tech blog, from time to time I have used this platform to share my political opinion. I don't know if any of my readers really care one way or another, but today I'm going to talk about politics a bit. So if you don't want to hear it, cut loose now because this basically just a politically charged rant.
The basic jist of this post is this: I am done voting for the Democratic party. I swore off voting for the Republican party back in 2004 and since then I have been constantly and increasingly frustrated with the ineptness of the Democratic party. But the word ineptness doesn't really do this situation justice because that's not what the problem is.
So its been a few months since I have posted anything here and the reason why is simple: I just haven't been feeling all that chatty lately. Now you might be thinking, "Has Jay finally run out of tech things to talk about?" and let me assure you: This is absolutely not the case.
It is the case however that despite all of the tech things that I'm embroiled in right now, real life is forcing that to mostly take a back seat at least when it comes to spending the time crafting some long winded diatribe about said tech things. Long story short: My father-in-law has lung cancer and my wife has been mostly living in Augusta for almost two months acting as his home healthcare nurse. I'm managing my father-in-law and step-mother-in-law's finances for them and handling all of the household duties that Annette and I would typically split amongst us.
