This is so weird. I hope Bungie comes clean about what happened at some point.

So it's true. We are the baddies.

Thanks to the 49ers for doing the Cowboys a solid and not choking there at the end.

Looked like they were trying to choke for a bit there

The 6- was comfortable in-pocket and in-hand, except for one handed use.  Browsing through some web pages and some system menus, it was immediately apparent that my thumb could no longer reach everywhere on the screen like it can on my 4s. 

So I'm left a bit torn between getting the 5s or the 6- this fall.  I guess I'll likely get the 6- and just get used to the different handling.

Something that I thought was a bug but turned out to be a feature is that a double tap (not press) of the home button pulls the page down so you can get to something out of reach.

That's the one hand mode

Does that exist in both the 6 and 6+?

Yeah it works on both

Just stopped by the Apple Store to check these things out in person.  The 6+ actually fit in my front pocket better than I expected, but I was wearing big-pocketed cargo shorts today.  I don't think it would be that comfortable in most of my jeans pockets, and I think it would be downright impossible to stow in some of my dress pants.

The 6- was comfortable in-pocket and in-hand, except for one handed use.  Browsing through some web pages and some system menus, it was immediately apparent that my thumb could no longer reach everywhere on the screen like it can on my 4s.

I've been using the 6 since release and it's definitely not very usable 1 hand.  It feels much nicer in the hand and the screen space is great, but I find I am holding it with one hand and navigating with the other more.

The iPhone 6+ is the bendiPhone, not the 'regular' iPhone 6.

I know that, but my mother doesn't seem to, she just sees all these "news" articles about it and thinks this is a big concern she needs to worry about. Still, the non plus is made of the same materials and I am sure could bend too, it's just less likely to because it fits in your pocket better. To me, and I would think the majority of people, this is a non-issue.

I think it is a non-issue.  Like you said don't sit on it and if you were skinny jeans be warned.  Also don't sit on it or sit on it.

I went with my work address so I hope to have my 6 by Monday or so.  icon_smile

I installed iOS8 on my 5 yesterday. While I like most of the changes (not sure why it took 7 years to finally have a timer option on the camera  icon_razz), I am experiencing some general sluggishness. Wondering if they optimized it for the 6/6 Plus's processor and didn't spend enough time trying it on other iPhone models?

Seems ok on my 5s, but I did a fresh install instead of just upgrade route.

So if you're like me and you hate games that make you play 90% stealth, will you enjoy this game? At $18 I may pull the trigger, but not if I know I'm not going to like it.

You'll hate it.  It's nearly 100% stealth-based...hence the name.  slywink

As a homeowner, there will always be something that "needs to be done".  That's half of the fun though! 

My advice is take all your hanging clothes, and lay them flay and put a garbage bag over them to transport, instead of taking them off hangers etc.  Once you are in your new place you're gonna love it!

I did the first strike mission last night.  I had waited a bit as I didn't have enough of an open window and I've heard the strikes were long.  Well, that much is true.  Long and monotonous.  1 MacGuffin fight around a Ghost, then a long protracted battle against a walker, only to end with another boss fight against a giant eyeball.  Not exactly a highlight mission imo.  



<shrugs>

I loved that mission.

I've done all the strikes but one and that one with the giant ogre and far and away the worst

I watched a stream of this a while back and have it pre-ordered on PS4.  The Nemesis system looks fun and I like the risk/reward you get with taking on orcs without preparing for it.  The open-world also looks like fun and gives a good amount of content that you can just take part in or ignore.  The fact that the game doesn't entirely wait on your every action is pretty cool. 

Even with the deluge of open world games coming this fall, I'm looking forward to this one due to the setting and the changes to the usual model. 

I'm in for this on day 1!

I found the first strike to be the most tedious and unenjoyable one and the rest have been much more fun.  The bosses take a crazy about of time to kill though.

I'll be buying GTA V for YellowKing's birthday, then nonchalantly focusing on the road during the drive home.  I'll put it in a closet upstairs and divert my attention towards other things, but it'll all turn out half-assed because I keep blinking furiously and wiping the sweat from my brow.  Eventually I'll go take it out again, just to make sure it's still there.

Then there will be an uncomfortable scene about a week later as YellowKing's friends and family watch him tears open some wrapping paper to reveal a half-eaten Snickers.  Their uncertain eyes will turn towards me, partially because they'll still be unclear on who I am or how I came to be in the house.  And partially because I'll be furtively wiping my brow, looking at that Snickers.
