Windows 10 upgrade reserved

There’s a windows icon in my system tray. Clicked it and reserved my free Windows 10 upgrade. It’ll download automatically once it’s available. Should be available July 29th.


Google Photos Backup won’t tell you what it’s uploading

Must be something huge, it’s been uploading one item for some time now. Titanfall appears to be playable with an almost 400 ping. At the end of the match, I got a connection timed out error.

I did take some pictures today, but I’m pretty sure it would of been done uploading them by now. Also I took more then one picture, it’s only uploading one.

Well I don’t think Google Photos Backup in Windows is working, just says uploading 9 of 9 and never finishes. I paused it so I can play Titanfall.

Best Buy doesn’t have the NVIDIA SHIELD yet

Went to Best Buy to see if they had the android TV SHIELD. They didn’t, not in the section where the Fire TV and other stuff was, and not in the game section the sales man took us to. He said they might get it on Wednesday.

Why doesn’t Titanfall lag?

The Elder Scrolls Online does. Might be part of the reason I never play it. Opening it now, so it can update. Seeing as I have a slow connection, it might be a while.

NVIDIA SHIELD streams games from the cloud too

Might not need to upgrade my computer or build a new one, if the game I want to play can be streamed. It’s called GRID. I thought that was the local streaming from your computer. Their site doesn’t list the games that are on GRID. I think a review on the shield said GRID is free for now.

Is 6 mbps internet fast enough? I can’t afford any faster internet.

PlayStation Now is a rip off, if you pay for something, the time is counted as soon as you purchase it. So four hours = four hours after you buy it, not play time. So I barely played any of the game I paid to play, didn’t feel like playing it right away. Went to try and play it, and sure enough it expired.

Maybe GRID will have a monthly fee.

The list of GRID games is here.

Should probably switch to Plex for borrowed shows

Twonky doesn’t mark stuff as watched, so you might forget which episodes you already watched are. Plex didn’t work in linux, wouldn’t read my external drive.

I’d still have to use Kodi for live TV, probably recorded TV too. That marks stuff as read I think though.

Looks like Kodi might be able to mark stuff as read, but you have to do it manually. Better then switching to Plex. I’m not a Plex fanboy.

Phone might be slow again

Did disabling all the apps with “AT&T” in it make my phone slower? Maybe one of the AT&T crapware apps is needed. Or maybe Facebook is slowing it down.

I’m not buying a new phone until modular phones come out. So that might be a while.

Smart watch doesn’t count steps anymore?

It said 4 minutes when I got back, it didn’t sync with my phone yet. Looks like my phone is counting, but my watch isn’t.

Either it was syncing more often before the update, or my watch is no longer counting steps. Don’t really need it if it isn’t going to count my steps. Anyone want to buy it?

Comcast finally lowered my bill

It’s $43.15. It’ll probably be $49.99 next month. I gave them 50 last month, but I think I only owed around 40. Doesn’t seem to say if I have a credit or something.


That’s how much battery life I have left. Looks like ZeroLemon is overkill for me. I wonder if the battery my phone came with is defective. A slightly higher capacity slim battery would probably work fine for me. But I like the case the ZeroLemon came with.

Maybe the original battery got destroyed from my Anker two port USB charger. Better not plug phone into it with the new battery. That’s hard to believe though. Anker should be a good brand. The only thing different is it might of been charging the phone faster. Maybe the stock battery doesn’t like faster charging. Won’t risk my ZeroLemon battery then.

Phone is down to 84% now. And back up to 85%.
