Middle of the week meh...  
It's Wednesday and I already wish it was Friday /o\ I caught a bug somewhere, I woke up with a sore throat on Monday and now I'm coughing and wheezing like poor pneumoniated Neal. Unfortunately, there's no Peter to come to the rescue *sadface* I got a doctor's appointment anyway tomorrow, so hopefully I'll score at least Friday off :)

If there is one thing my job taught me, it's that there is absolutely no point in going to work sick and worrying about not being there, no one is gonna care, it's not gonna score me any points, all it will do is delay my recovery which is simply not worth it, especially when in my case even a small bug can go armageddon in a day. So I will gladly accept any days off the doc offers!

Also, I came to realize that I really, really need a new phone /o\ Not because there is something wrong with my current iPhone, I'm simply running out of space on it. It only has 16GB and while I never actually needed a lot of space, the app upgrades and new shiny things + music and games and photos - well, 16GB is not enough to store all of that. So I did a quick research and I should be able to sign a new contract in April. That leaves me some time to decide whether I want the 64GB version or the 128GB version. I'm leaning towards the 64GB version, that's still 4 times more than what I have now, so it should be enough for the next 2 years... and it's cheaper than the 128GB version. Has anyone tried out the new live photos in the 6s? I'm curious how big the output files are :)

And OK, the third episode of The X-Files, what the hell was that? I'm still scratching my head wondering what happened o_O

I have the 64 GB 6 (not 6s or 6+ ;-)), and I *love* the "space" on it. I listen to the music on my phone alllll the time I'm in the car, esp. (and lots of other times, too), so it *needs* to be able to hold both music and photos. I've *seen* the "live" photos on the 6s (S got one just before we were together last fall), and they're incredible, but I don't know how much more space they use than normal. She actually got the 128 GB b/c she takes tons of vids of her kids in band, etc., so she needs that much. My general impression (which may not be entirely accurate) is that the photos themselves don't take up much more space than "normal", but I'm sure vids do that, no matter what.

You will *love* the camera, though, no matter what. I can tell a HUGE difference between the 5/5s camera and the 6, and I think they improved it even further in the 6s (aside from the "live" aspect, I mean). I've used my phone as my camera FAR more since I got the 6 than I ever did before; I've scarcely used my "real" camera in the last couple years, esp. compared to how I used it before. Even at the rodeo last summer, my phone was getting better pics than my camera, and I've got a *good* camera (not top-of-the-line, but it's still dang good).

I hope your doctor gives you good meds and they do their job VERY quickly and you're able to enjoy your weekend! *HUGS*HUGS*HUGS*

I'm staying at home tomorrow \o/ And I just picked up some meds so hopefully I'll be back to normal before Monday :D

Aah, yeah, it's always such struggle to pick the new toy, lol :D I definitely love the look of the pics from the 6 :D I'm also one of the people who grabs the real camera when going on vacation but even the knowledge that there is an epic camera in my phone is certainly welcomed :D

Once I feel like going on a trip to the store, I'll go and play with the options and see which one seems best for me :D

YAY for good meds and staying home!!

And yes, I almost always take the good camera, too, but then, lately, I've still ended up using my phone far more than the camera, anyway :-P But I actually don't really "mind" that, b/c it's so nice to always have it with me that way!

And yay for playing with the toys, too -- that's always fun, even if you do have to wait a while to actually pick up the one you choose ;-)
