I did the same in May. Switched from to T-Mobile from Verizon and got the HTC One M8. I left an unlimited data plan and my wife and I both got a single gigabyte each on T-Mobile. With only moderately more attention to my wifi usage I'm able to stay under a gig, in fact I usually only use about 350 megs per month.

Ehhh... I had a cheapo stylus that I got from a job fair somewhere that just had the plastic ball at the end. When it finally wore out after a few months I sprung for one of these, I believe based on reading from wirecutter. I admit it is extremely accurate and feels very sturdy, for someone that does actual work on… » 8/21/14 5:22am Yesterday 5:22am

I'm guessing you haven't been looking for a job recently. I say this since I graduated in 2007 and then again with a masters in 2009. It was impossible to get a job then. I worked two part time jobs for a while, then worked a job requiring no degree. I now have a job that only requires an associates degree. » 8/12/14 1:40pm 8/12/14 1:40pm

I did a graduate degree straight out of undergrad. I was almost 24 with a Master's degree and no work experience, but I assumed that a grad degree was enough to get me in the door. That was 5 years ago and I've worked several part time jobs, a full time job that I hated for a year and now finally into a career that… » 7/23/14 9:24am 7/23/14 9:24am

And this is why we are currently waiting on a house to be built for us. It's 5 blocks from the ocean yet is one of the few areas in the town that doesn't require flood insurance. It's got a new 30 year roof, new plumbing/electrical, and no issues left behind by the former owners. I'm a bit of a neat freak and can't… » 7/15/14 6:24pm 7/15/14 6:24pm

Definitely agree and can add they have excellent customer service. I used them only once about a year ago after my brother's recommendation. I'm used to paying about $300-400 for a pair of glasses due to my prescription and desire not to wear hideous frames. I got a pair from them for about $75 since the frames… » 7/10/14 7:00am 7/10/14 7:00am

I doubt she could make it a month on what we feed our cats. They each get about 2-3 ounces a day of ground, raw chicken. It includes raw bones and organs, everything but the feathers, beaks, and feet. Then add a few vitamins and plant matter to replicate the stomach contents of any potential prey.

Our cats are as… » 7/07/14 9:47am 7/07/14 9:47am

Ugh... I need this. This is exactly what I want my home office to look like, except mine would include a stylish but functional space for my Xbox. I want that chair SOOOOOOOOOOO bad.

Also, anyone know that desk? I have something similar but with more drawers and elevated space. I want something simple with a large… » 7/02/14 6:05pm 7/02/14 6:05pm

Couldn't agree more about rooting a stock phone and then using xposed to do the rest. On my Galaxy Nexus I could only run AOKP roms because of the mods they had baked into the rom. I tried others and always came right back. I was really bummed when I got the M8 that there wasn't an official AOKP release.

Then I… » 7/02/14 10:33am 7/02/14 10:33am

I'd like to try a real life comparison to my HTC One M8. I'm mostly interested to see if the 3 GB of RAM really makes a noticeable difference, because the M8 with only 2 gigs really flies.

I'd also be interested in comparing CM11 vs Sense, because I have to say that HTC really nailed how a manufacturer skin should be.… » 7/02/14 10:41am 7/02/14 10:41am

Wifi Scheduler is a great tool to toggle your wifi on/off based on which cell tower you are using. I used Tasker for years to do this, but it was a very convoluted method involving 5 different profiles that seem to get very unreliable after my recent upgrade to an HTC One M8.

With Wifi Scheduler, it takes a few days… » 7/01/14 10:59am 7/01/14 10:59am
