Laptop or desktop computer?

Here's another comment I left on a Youtube video about "Top laptops 2017" (My story)

I haven't owned a laptop before. A few years ago when looking to buy a new computer (the one I use now) I was on a bit of a budget (about $750ish) I sort of wanted a laptop so I got a nice Dell 17" core i7 about $800 on Amazon and was so excited to use it and after a week I realized either A. I wasn't a laptop guy or B. this wasn't the laptop for me. Thank goodness for Amazon easy returns, so I got a nice Dell desktop i7 productivity unit for about $650ish and couldn't be happier, I got a nice 19" widescreen Dell monitor the next black Friday at Best Buy for $99. Looking back now I'm a little from column A and a little from column B. The Dell laptop I got (and returned) from 2014, that's only 3 years ago, seemed dated compared to a MacBook at the time even. If I were to splurge (which is tough for me) and get a MacBook I am positive I could become a laptop guy. So what am I now, column A or B...

A Rant About Android

I posted this as a comment on a Pocket Now video about the new OnePlus 5 phone.
   I really like this phone for specs and hardware and pricing but come on guys 5.5 inch is the norm now!? How about a nice 5" device to fit nicely in my hand and pocket. They wonder why iPhone is popular even with a 4.7" screen, it's because it can be used with one hand without thinking about your phone. Yet EVERY Android phone today has to be a two-hander or a one-hander piece-of-junk small budget device. I've been with Android for too long and keep telling myself to go to iPhone but I don't and every year I'm using a sub-flagship still, great but not GREAT-great. I'm aware the S8 is about the size of an iPhone but it's also pricier as well which begs the question why not just get an iPhone and have many, many more years of updates, and timelier as well. We'll see what happens this year... Story of my life.

Instagram Stories better than Snapchat?

   Are Instagram Stories more relatable and thereby better than Snapchat for telling good well, Stories. In my opinion the interface is more well suited to be easier but more accessible than Snapchat's "I'm only good on iPhone designed for millennials" app design.  Is Instagram Stories a blatant copy of Snapchat? Yes but it's competition and competition leads to better stuff in the future or at least it should anyway.
    With this said follow me on Instagram for some kickass lit Stories! >>
