Well, well, well. Public Mobile backed down after thousands of complaints were submitted to the CCTS. But in their "apology" letter, they say this: "While all good things must come to an end at some point – that point is not today." A veiled threat to be sure. I'll have to think about whether to stick with PM cause the whole thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Public Mobile just texted me to say they are raising my cell phone bill by $20 a month. WTF 😡
On the book side of things, I've started the third Mistborn novel -
The Hero of Ages. It is predictably awesome.
I'm enjoying Altered Carbon - my wife's cousin worked on it (it was filmed in Vancouver). The plot's a bit muddy but the visuals are A+
My four-year old's most hilarious threat: "Do what I say or I'll punch you in the eyeball."
Started off focusing on the main quest in Fallout 4 but am now agonizing over which faction to side with...so yeah, I'm hooked.
Intel's new Vaunt smart glasses look very promising and the right way to avoid being a "glasshole".
Put together another video highlighting the new features in the latest SW update cause the last one was a hit. Maybe I should branch into Marketing instead of Engineering?
The DJI Mavic Air looks absolutely sick. Would have loved one of these when I was doing backcountry hiking (prior to having kids).
Doesn't look like there will be a blog post for January, which is a fail 😞 But, it has been a busy start to the year and nobody is paying me to blog.
Took the kids to see Paddington 2 yesterday and it was better than it had any right to be.
It's rainy days like this that I'm glad to be a desk jockey.
Water test was good experience but cold and wet. Thought that the salty Captain's name was "Dogfin" - super cool pirate name. Found out it was actually "Dagfin" (Norwegian) - slightly disappointing.
Glad the Tsunami warning is cancelled - we’re going out on the boat today!
Good start to Hugh Howey's Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue.
Started Fallout 4 and quickly remembered that I don't like Bethesda's game engine. Could never get into Elder Scrolls. But the intriguing post-apocalyptic world beckons me on despite this.
Had a date night at Rosa's Cucina Italiana while the Grandparents took the kids 👍Rosa’s is overhyped and overpriced - and I don’t give a toss if Michael Bublé eats there... but we had a gift certificate from RBC so why not!
Highlight of CES has to be the ping-pong playing robot. Everything else is no fun.
If Kim Jong-un has read a Korean version of The Boy Who Cried Wolf, he’s probably thinking that now would be a good time to send an ICBM over to Hawaii. Hopefully there is no Korean version.
I didn't know that Supergirl was filmed in Vancouver. Maybe all CW shows are?
