  7. Been using Note 3 for two weeks. Nice screen and battery life, other than those I feel I should have bought 5s instead. Does anyone know how to set default action for Chrome? After downloading a excel file from work or school, I want the file open automatically in Quick office. For now, I have to navigate to the file system and open the file inside download folder manually and that is cumbersome. Firefox does that automatically but there are many website won't render correctly. Another question, how can I download album artwork? Thanks

  15. Unless they're going to be a niche product like Fuji or Leica, they'll repeat the unfortunate step of NEX.
  16. There will be a new FF A mount to E mount adapter and some new Zeiss branded prime and zoom. New FE lenses: Zeiss FE 24-70mm f/4.0 OSS Sony G 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Zeiss FE 35mm f/2.8 Zeiss FE 55mm f/1.8 Zeiss FE 70-200mm f/4.0 OSS (coming early 2014) many more lenses coming the next 12 months (including fast primes).

  18. I was looking at Tamron 24-70 when I bought my 6D but there are reports of issue of lens came off. In the end, I bought 24-105 which has better range and IS. http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/09/tamron-24-70-f2-8-vc-issue
  19. You can turn on restriction only when you let your kids use your personal phone, it takes no more step than logging off and switch to guest account. If Apple's Touch ID can log in to different account base on finger prints, that would be more convenient.
  20. I haven't seen report on "Guest" account in iOS 7 but if one wants to limit access of certain features by kids, just go to Setting -> General -> Restriction and select feature to disable. It is already in iOS 6, not sure about 5. On the other hand, "Guest" account should let one to further tailor features for particular user.
  21. Replacing my mom's 4 with 5S next month, but not sure if I'd get 5S or Note 3 for myself. Heard complains of lag on S3, S4 and Note 2. Hope Note 3 is better.
  22. If I'm really into video, I'll get this http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/blackmagicpocketcinemacamera Small and affordable for this level of quality but no AF again
  23. Reason why I'd not recommended DSLR for video because DSLRs SUCK at AF during video. If you must have a camera for video, I'd pick mirrorless.
