    Preordered the Galaxy S9 Plus 256GB to replace my Galaxy S6 Edge which is 3 years old and struggling to hold a charge for the past couple of weeks.

    Oh, and a wedding (cost more than I thought it would (for me), but we have also received more support than I would have expected).

    And a tropical holiday for afterwards.

    The S9 looks like a great phone... a year into my S8+ I still love it.

    That's weird, they do sell the 6s here, they stopped selling the 6 when the 7 rolled out, hence I expected the stores to drop the 6s this year but you can still buy it.
    I've spent 1.5 year using the 6s, which is different than the 6 but I think they're quite similar. I can tell you: it's definitely not a bad phone but I couldn't get to grips with it. It's fast for daily basis but after 10 months the battery would just not last for more than a few hours, meaning on a regular school day from 9.00 to 14.30 I had to charge it during class. Very annoying! Also the storage was pretty limited but I chose the 16GB version because the bigger one (64 GB iirc (?)) was out of stock and I needed a new phone asap. I agree that my phone has had a rough life, running Snapchat all the time (peer pressure I'm sorry) and being on all day.
    I switched to Android, got myself a regular Samsung Galaxy S8. Most definitely an improvement in terms of storage and battery capacity, but I think the overall Apple UI works better for me. If only Apple still made sensible phones after the 6s, I'd have stuck with them. But now, I think they're overpriced for what you get from them. On the 6 and 6s models, they price drops for at the moment probably make them worth it.

    Awesome bike, but damn, it reminds me too much of a shell suit I used to have when I was younger. :eek:

    Nice. I keep getting tempted to buy one of those myself, but other things keep getting in the way at the moment, maybe around Christmas if there are some decent deals on one.

    Only interesting thing I've 'bought' recently is a Samsung Galaxy S9. After what must be seven or eight years I decided enough was enough with overpriced Apple phones with (in my opinion) tech that's behind the times or at best matches phones with a much cheaper price tag. I stayed with them until now because I liked the familiarity of iOS, but I decided it'll be interesting to get to grips with Android all of the customisation so apart from an iPod Classic 80GB which I will never replace (I genuinely love the thing, had it 10 years now and it still works faultlessly), I'm slowly ridding myself of Apple products. I have an iPad 2 as well, but that's become dog slow so it'll be getting replaced by an Amazon Fire HD10 or something in the future because I only need something with a decent size screen that I can watch YouTube/Twitch in bed with that doesn't take five years to load everything.

    Apple's behind times? Its not like they've been using the same flawed designs for years or anything like that

    Bought a few things over the Black Friday weekend:

    My first pair of active noise cancelling headphones - the Sony WX-1000 XM3 - these review on par or better than the latest Bose ones, and I must say they sound amazing and have some great extra features. I'm impressed that I can't hear myself typing this on the noisy mechanical keyboard that I have. :cool:

    2x 10TB NAS HDDs as one of my NAS volumes has run out of space. Fortunately, with RAID 1 it can rebuild itself one disk at a time without me manually juggling files around.

    Also grabbed a bunch of new PC parts :whistle:

    And some flowers for my wife :tup:
