IWC Portofino

Got myself an IWC.

Same story - Was hoping to find the BLNR (this time in Dubai). Wasn’t available, so ended up looking at other watches in the store. Liked this, so got one.

Conspiracy Of The Rich – Robert T. Kiyosaki

Some parts were informative and made sense.

However, most of the book was devoted to shameless self-promotion (which gets annoying after a while) and repetition (which is even more irritating than the annoying self-promotion).

The unnecessary inclusion of diagrams / figures / tables and two graphs doesn’t add much value if all you do is keep repeating the same nonsense for a few hundred pages.

And then, there were typos!

Done with Season 1. Have no interest in Season 2 (If the series does get renewed).

The first few episodes were interesting, but then it just got really pointless.

Blonde Bitch Lauren Fitch (Kim Raver) seemed to be the only interesting character that could bring in SOME sense to this show. Sadly, she features only 3 times in Season 1.

Billionaire Gideon Reeves (Justin Kirk) is tolerable (at best).

Officer Nicholas Brandt (Taylor Handley) keeps yapping about his military tours. Shut up, already!

Detective Theresa Murphy (Natalie Martinez) is annoying with her Holier-Than-Thou / Know-it-all / Street-Smart shit. Sequences between Detective Murphy and her family (mom/son/ex-husband) are torture!

Rest of the cast – Supporting or otherwise – is Rubbish.

Ahh. I have finally figured it out!

It is my mistake; to expect the device / OS to work/operate/behave in a sensible/logical manner. I mean, these people can’t even spell! Expecting them to understand the core purpose of a device is OBVIOUSLY too much to expect!

Breitling Transocean Day Date

I was looking for the Batman (BLNR). When I couldn’t find that, I walked into Breitling and was pretty sure I would get a Navitimer. However, it was extremely difficult to ignore this Transocean Day Date. Simple. Stately. Clean.

That said, I am not sure how long I will continue to like this one…

BlackBerry Mercury

Got it and have been using it for a little over a week now. It’s better than the Venice, that’s for sure, but…

The device runs on Android, which means (for me) it’s cluttered with shit / ‘Features’ I don’t need or care about and missing the things that I DO NEED. There simply is no escaping this scenario and I absolutely hate the fact that a superior OS had to die. That said, at least this Android has a proper keyboard - without the slider, so that’s a relief.

The Physical Keyboard on this one is significantly better than the one on the Venice. The PKB can be used to swipe / flick the words or for scrolling, BUT a proper track-pad would make things considerably more tolerable.

The BlackBerry HUB needs A LOT OF work on the Android!
