    I love my baby girl, she is a snuggler and likes nothing more than to lie on my chest when I'm in the recliner, but she doesn't hesitate to knock anything she possibly can off a table.

    I have ordered a custom case that I designed personally to dress up my Note8 since I won't be seeing the glass back and still want to look at something pretty and not just a block. I got it at case-custom but there are surely other sites that are as good. Then I ordered a tempered glass screen protector making sure it said it was case friendly. We will see about that one as I am skeptical.

    I was reading an article about the 400GB card and the first comment was 'you guys are crazy for spending that much on a memory card. I got a 512GB card off eBay from a seller in China for $29.99'


    Hope you don't care about your pictures that much, ace

    :D

    By the way, folks... PLEASE don't get stupid out there like the people who bought this thing:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/1TB-micro-S...354479&hash=item41cafce8b2:g:JdMAAOSwFJBZR0jq

    Folks, THINK!

    The largest-capacity card on the market is 400GB, and it was JUST released by SanDisk. It retails for $250 (which is a STEAL for external flash memory). If anyone out there really thinks that they can buy a generic 1TB card for $45, and so far nearly 80 suckers have pounced on this one listing, then they almost deserve to lose money and data. I don't care if it's marked and reads 10TB: once you hit the physical limit of that card, your data will fall off the face of the earth, never to be seen again.

    Common sense prevails!

    BIG TIME CASE DEAL!
    $5 caseology cases. Link below contains promo codes. I picked up a blue coral skyfall series case. The black one was on back order so I went with blue. I dont mind because I really liked the blue phone. Wished it was for sale in the US. But now I kind of have the best of both worlds.
    Check the link below.
    Note that you have to change the seller (There is only 1 other to choose from) so that it comes from Caseology. So you should NOT see prime shipping as an option. This is the only way the promo works.
    https://slickdeals.net/f/10491136-c...-galaxy-s8-s8-iphone-7-7-from-4-more-free-s-h

    I already have a Spigen case on the way but felt this was too nice a deal to pass up!

    If you don't mind funding concepts and assuming a little rush, then you might be interested in this:


    http://360audio.co


    Even though I'm a fan of Bluetooth headphones, I picked up the Super Early Bird set of these on Kickstarter. They are already fully funded, and it will be interesting to see how they sound.

    If you want an inexpensive car charger and still have your 30% discount code check out EP-LN915UBESTA - Adaptive Fast Charging Vehicle Charger on Samsung.com. Currently it is on sale for $9.48 regularly $29.99. With the 30% discount it comes to $6.64 including free shipping. Provide your own USB-C and you are good to go.

    I'm looking at a Spigen case for my Note 8, after watching some good videos from Flossy Carter that is. Guy's cool AF with his reviews.

    Currently, have a Spiderpodium in-car holder mounted to the vent in my car, it was a little jittery yesterday, it grabs it, but I think I need to adjust it.

    I'll tell you what... I'm not an earbud fan but I HAD to back these:

    http://kck.st/2vKNich

    While I like my Bose QC35s, these earbuds may prove acoustically superior for movies and such. I probably won't be able to wear them long term because I can't stand things stuck in my ear (hence my inability to use hearing aids). But we'll see what they sound like when they arrive.

    1 more came with like six sizes. I mixed and matched to find what I'm listening to now.

    I like hard buds. Those foamy buds leak to much. 1 more delivered.

    Thanks for the tip. Mine came to $7.12 with sales tax and I have several USB-C cables.

    According to Samsung's website, the Alcantara case "Will ship week of Sep 18th 2017". Let's hope that's the case (pun intended).
