MBAs. Sony is run by MBAs. I don't discount that the PS2 is still selling reasonably well, but they would've been alot wiser to go the MS route and completely cut off the old console. I think gamers, regardless of what we say, would m

Upgrading phone

at 18:52 - 11th, July 2023
I've half heartedly been thinking about getting a new phone so I've been looking at anything that makes me go "wow" and haven't seen much of a reason to get away from my LG G8. The G8 is just such a powerful and wonderful phone, the only thing I wish it had was a better camera, though the cameras are actually really decent for the time and even stand up to most cell phone cameras today. They just can't compete with the new iphone and galaxy phones but I knew that going in.

I'm also looking to get lineage os or at least get away from apple and google as much as possible.

On the "hmm, that's kind of cool" front, we have the Nothing Phone 1.

seems like a regular phone with transparent case and leds in the housing. Pretty snazzy, but still not enough for me to switch.

More interesting is the LightPhone

This is a dumb smart phone. Adam Curry was sent on (No Agenda podcast, go check it out right now) and he fell in love with it. He's a big time privacy guy and was running lineage os for god knows how long. Don't know why he switched back to regular android. This thing actually seems pretty interesting and if it was 50 - 100 bucks I'd of picked one up by now, but at 299 or whatever for the old model.That's a no for me.

Haven't upgraded yet. I bought my LG G8 for about 100US used. pretty decent for an old flagship phone. Looking for a similar deal that would still be considered an upgrade though.

I'm curious what JS thinks of all this. I think he still works at one of the phone companies doesn't he?

Yes, I still work at Telus. I actually won an LG G8X when it came out in a contest a few years ago. The second screen wasn't really that useful. I've mostly been buying Pixel phones since they've had a few less expensive models lately.

For the lightphone, I've used e-ink displays on a Kindle and kobo. It's great for reading, awful for navigating. I prefer dark mode i'f i'm reading something on my phone.
