I’ve been reading some really great books. All sci-fi, strangely enough. I mean, yeah, I’ve read sci-fi before, but looking at what I’ve read since I got my Kindle, I don’t think there was any straight up sci-fi in there. I read “The Windup Girl” a while back, which is sci-fi, but more specifically, it’s like “bio-punk” or something along those lines.
In order, I read “The Forever War,” followed by “The Martian,” and am currently on “Wool,” which is the first in a series. All amazing, especially “The Martian.” Probably the best book I’ve read in the past decade.
I looked into getting an Android phone earlier this year, but decided against it. There’s no point for me, because a phone is a phone and they all do the same thing. Since my 2 year old iPhone 5’s battery is starting to show its age (it must have thousands of load cycles by now…), I’m looking forward to getting an iPhone 6 (or whatever they call it). I really just want a bigger screen, better front facing camera, and some extra battery couldn’t hurt. That’s all it would take to make me happy, and most of that is rumored anyway.
I also need a new watch (one of my Weekenders stopped working), but I’m going to wait and see what Apple does with its rumored wearable before committing to a purchase. I am honestly not too impressed with the category right now, as all of the devices are ugly, huge, don’t do much, etc. The only one that interests me is the Moto 360, which is still pretty large, and I can’t use it because Android Wear is only compatible with Android. If Apple’s device is as ugly as its competitors’, I’m done waiting, and I’ll buy a nice regular watch.
