You’re my steady. You’re the one that makes me feel.. sunshine.

...

all throughout history, the loneliest people were the ones who always spoke the truth, the ones who made a difference by withstanding the indifference
I guess it’s up to me now.. should I take that risk or just smile?

Comparing the Bose NC700 and the Sony WH-1000XM4

slated in mainstream, consumed at 7:50 pm

Regarding the Bose NC700 and the Sony WH-1000XM4 noise-cancelling headphones:

Both have good noise-cancelling.

The Bose has more control over the noise-cancelling and ambient sound levels. The Sony has more auto-adjustment.

If you wear glasses or anything similar with the Bose, you lose several steps of the noise-cancelling; glasses have no impact on the Sony’s sound quality.

Contrary to its claims, the Sony canNOT handle being connected to more than one device at a time, unless you mean to use one device for listening to audio and then have your phone be absolute primary and override every time. Bose can switch back and forth between two devices, not flawlessly, though fairly usably.

They could BOTH learn a thing or ten from Logitech, and add an additional button for device switching, and another additional button so we can use voice-assistance as advertised without having to be WITHOUT one feature or the other.

If you want to be able to use a voice assistant you will have NO control over ambient/noise-cancelling levels on your Sony, unless you have your phone and Sony app open in front of you all the time. That essentially means you can have basic noise-cancelling/ambient control OR you can have voice assistance. Inane.

The Sony likes to make noise at EVERYTHING, beeping and talking loudly in your ear to tell you whenever it has turned on, whenever it is turning off, whenever it connects to bluetooth, whenever it’s changing volume, whenever ANYTHING. There is no option to stop this. The Bose can be asked to be more subtle and decent, and is elegant about this.

My limited experience with Sony’s customer support so far has been that they don’t really care about the customer and their results. My repeated experience with Bose’s customer support is that they are consistently ultimately sincere in striving to resolve issues for the customer.

Better on the outside

slated in consumed, mainstream at 1:20 pm

I don’t like the new interior of the entrance. Now instead of “bigger on the inside”, it’s “extra-dimensional addition that couldn’t be seen/accessed from the outside”.
… Maybe they’ll explain some brilliant reasoning for all this. Until then, I don’t like it.

Side-by-side Comparison: Google Pixel 4 XL (2019) vs. Pixel 3 XL (2018) vs. Google Pixel 2 XL (2017)

slated in consumed, mainstream at 1:20 pm

Spreadsheet to Compare Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 4 XL phones by Google. (Added Pixel 4XL October 15, 2019)

128gb storage capacity is perfectly respectable as an option, however as a maximum option for storage capacity it is simply pathetic in 2018. It was woeful in 2017. All the more impressively pathetic in 2019.

My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro. Is the hype justified? I’ll finally be able to answer this in a few hours.
P.S. I like that my keyboard apparently already knows how to spell Totoro.

Gmail understands me

I like that Gmail considered 8:00am Thursday as “tomorrow” even though it’s currently 2:50am Thursday. Gmail understands me.

Matt Nathanson's new album

Matt Nathanson’s new songs are good; I just can’t identify, so can’t really listen. If you’re hung up on your past and do not want to move forward, I recommend his latest album. Otherwise, there’s a world of happiness and other good music to have, including some of his wonderfully happy older songs.
