  1. Oh what a difference a year makes... My wife's iPhone 13 Pro Max arrived early this month from Verizon & she is finding that the Mophie goes into blinking (non-charging) mode shortly after placing the new phone on the wireless charging stand. Apparently the Mophie doesn't like the MagSafe tech inside the new phones. The "Belkin 3-in-1 Wireless Charger with MagSafe" seems to garner good reviews. However, my wife is not the most...err, gentle with things, and the Belkin seems to perch the phone rather precariously. I would anticipate frequent droppage off the nightstand, which is not something I want with such a costly new phone. Anyone have any new reco's, other than the "Apple MagSafe Duo Charger" in a combo (phone+watch) charger?

    Succession

    Best ep of the season! Lots of language to mull over...some great lines in there...I should re-watch too.
  3. Yola: Why have I not heard her before?
  4. Upgrade done. Thanks for the input gents. Things seem to be running quite smoothly...snappier even, under Win11. When the MS updates aren't downloading in the background, that is 😕
  5. My newish laptop is eligible for the Microsoft OS upgrade. Has anyone bit on the MS free upgrade? Any war stories? Curious...

    Deals

    ^I see that the HD6xx are also on sale - lowest I've seen & "cheap as chips", as they say.
  7. A friend, Kristen suffered a cerebral aneurysm on Sunday. She was only 44 years old. I say "friend", but I really only knew she & her husband by way of us purchasing our current home from them a few years back. We stayed peripherally connected, as my wife works in the same hospital as they do, running into them every once in a while. As well-regarded local doctors & parents to two young children, they seemed to have it all. This hits particularly hard, as the anniversary of my sister-in-law Tanya's passing from an identical affliction nine years ago at only 42 y/o, approaches in the next days. When tragedy happens so swiftly, one tries to make some sense, if at all possible. Often, there is none. So, in Kristen & Tanya's memory, hug your loved one's a little tighter tonight & tell them what they mean to you.
  8. Billions (Showtime) - continuing our exploration into how the one-percenters live/work. Just finished season 1 - crazy fun stuff. Hopefully can get through s2-5 before Succession starts back up next month.
  9. Succession (HBO) - binging on our new guilty pleasure. If Dallas had been made today, this is what it would be. This family be cray-cray, and I can't look away. Season 3 coming soon.
  10. U.S. Open (ESPN) - some great tennis so far this week. More to come.
