My heart hasn’t been in it the past couple of days. I think tomorrow I’ll review the outline again. I think maybe I’ve gone astray.

This Is What Using The New Small iPhone Is Actually Like

Excellent review by Nicole Nguyen at BuzzFeed.

I’m tempted by the small size. I have small hands. For a man, at least.

On the other hand, I’m also tempted by a larger phone, something I can use instead of my iPad mini.

On the negative side, I don’t want to buy a phone with the guts of the year-old iPhone 6s.

On the positive side: Two-day battery life! Holy mother of Steve Jobs!

Conclusion: I’m going to hold out until autumn, when we’ll probably see the next full refresh of the iPhone line. Or even next year, when rumor has it we’ll see a complete revamp.

This Amazon review cracked me up, proving once again that I am 14 years old

fannypack

I found this review on the Amazon listing for this fannypack, while shopping for a replacement for a fannypack I bought 20 years ago on our honeymoon in the UK. For the past six years, I’ve been wearing that fannypack daily while walking. The zipper on that fannypack broke. I felt like I should have some kind of decommissioning ceremony for a tool that had done honorable service for a full generation. Instead I just threw it out.

I bought the fannypack reviewed at the link, and I’m very happy with it after several days’ use. It’s a good size — all the other fannypacks I’ve seen that hold water bottles are either too small or too big. This one is just right.

I have not put it to the purpose the reviewer describes. AND I NEVER WILL.

This review seems to be gone now. Some people just don’t appreciate literature.

“I was not entirely disappointed.” NOW THAT IS AN INSPIRING THING TO READ ON A YELP REVIEW.
