Is there an app you'd recommend to a brand new beginner GTD user? I use a PC and an iPhone. Also heavy Google user with their email and calendar as well as Google Assistant. Is Keep my best bet? Or something else?
There are so many apps I see recommended that I'm a little overwhelmed. I have ADHD and have ended up with some stuff in Evernote, OneDrive, Keep, Asana, Agenda, Things, Wunderlist, etc. (this was all before learning of GTD). I realize now that I need one electronic "container" (or maybe one for reference materials and one for actions and project tracking). I feel like I'm THIS CLOSE to having a mental breakthrough in this, but I'm overwhelmed and feel like I just need someone to tell me which to use so I can delete all the others and just commit to one system. I know internet strangers can't tell me what will be the best fit for me personally with any certainty, but I thought it couldn't hurt to look for some guidance from people who have maybe been there, can look back, and identify what they started with or wish they'd started with and why they would recommend it. (I also use a paper bullet journal. Paper-based planning works best for my brain, but modern times demand electronic support as well. So, I'm not necessarily looking for an electronic product that will exclusively cover my entire GTD system on its own - more so that I will use concurrently with my bullet journal and paper inbox. I also realize that maybe you guys can recommend something that I'll get started with, but a year from now I may decide is not entirely suitable and need to switch to something different. I fully accept that possibility. I think I just need something that I can get up and running so I can start making some progress ASAP. I dont mind a steep learning curve if it's worth it. To use a GTD language, I don't need to COMPLETE this project of setting up GTD for myself ASAP, but I DO need to define the action steps for the project ASAP. My depression, anxiety, and self-confidence just need to feel like I'm doing the next right thing. I need to stop second-guessing myself and just make a decision and commit to it so I can make some progress.I hope that makes some sense.)
Hello, Usually I bet through the casino or through the neighborhood bookie, but now that I came into some money and moved I am upgrading to become a small time bookie. I’m looking for an App that can calculate pay outs mostly so I can have the information right away for bettors. Also I am looking to make small wagers on the side for myself. Any advice or recommendations for a good App?
DotaBuff on Chrome for iPhone attempting to download betting app every time I access the site. (U.K.)
Can anybody tell me why when I go onto DotaBuff on my iPhone (via Chrome) it attempts to download a betting app, fails, and opens the app store? It's a fair bit more intrusive than a simple ad, it's actively trying to install something then kicks me off my browser. I'm from the U.K. It's really annoying and its been happening for a while now.

I would like someone to grab data from a mysql database and display the odds in an iPhone app. Currently I would like to start with baseball odds. I want to create a simple app at first and then add features (& sports) in future iterations. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/2fr6gfeq8q55afc/sM6TAIaPyO - Main Odds- The app will open up to this page and displays the current odds. I want someone to be able to select: Moneyline, Spead & OveUnder (the three lines on top is where a user would select what type of odds to display) Swipe - When a user swipes to the right or left...a display will show up allowing the player to hit the star button to watch the game. Watch - This shows the watched games. An app to look at would be odds insider to get an idea of what I want to do.
When checking the box to indicate that you'll call an existing bet for x amount, the box remains checked even if the bet is subsequently raised. On the website, the box becomes unchecked if the amount of the bet required to stay in the hand changes. On the app, the box remains checked even if the bet size jumps 10x. So be careful out there. I haven't reported this through pokerstars support, but will take the time tomorrow to figure out how. edit - added the word "required", for clarity.
As a long-time contributor to this sub, I know we love nothing more than discussing our degeneracy. If nothing else, hearing such stories makes you realise there are other people out there who have lived similar experiences to you. Stories of epic failure provide a sense of comfort. Stories of unexpected triumphs provide a feeling of hope. The following bets - and the circumstances surrounding each - were not necessarily story-worthy. However, there were a number of intricate details which I felt were worth highlighting. Aside from the statistical rollercoaster than one experiences throughout a game (i.e. going from "how can this lose?" to "this bet is over"), there are other factors which can have significant ramifications for one's betting endeavours. This is where the factor of timing comes into play. How often have you bet on something purely due to the fact that the game was starting shortly? It could either be a straight wager on the game. Or, you might have decided to add the short-priced "lock" to boost your odds. How often has this then come back to bite you? Or conversely, this random event - where your betting urge coincided with the scheduled timing of this event taking place - results in a recuperation of losses from previous games that you "studied" prior to placing your losing wagers? Without further ado, this is my story. It is but a speck in the ocean that is my entire betting career. But it was a Sunday night full of swings, sweats and... well I won't spoil the ending. As you read this, I want you to keep the headline in mind. Specifically, the wordstiming, luckanddegeneracy. It's early on a Sunday evening in Melbourne, Australia. Approximately 6PM to be exact. We are currently under the world's strictest COVID lockdown. We have an 8PM curfew, and I was keen to get in a 1 hour walk before returning home to make dinner. Now typically - as I had already walked my dog several hours earlier - I would not go for another on my own. But for some reason, I just had an urge to get some fresh air. Here is the first element in play: timing. At 6:10PM, an AFL (Australian Football) was scheduled to begin. As I begin my walk, I inevitably flick through my preferred bookmaker's iPhone app and this game catches my eye. Part of me says "don't bet it". The other part of me curb-stomps that voice in my head and says "don't be a pussy". Now on another note, I placed a daily deposit limit of $3000 on my account. To some, that is insanely big. I generally bet $1000 or so, and so this stops me from stupidly chasing the day's losses. Here is where another element peaks it's head: luck. I had deposited $1750 that day. Had I reached my limit, the following events would only have existed in a parallel universe. But as luck would have it, I had $1250 to play with. So I said 'fuck it' and made the deposit. It's about 6:05PM now and I don't have much time. I sift through the markets on offer and decide it's best to play a Same Game Multi (parlaying multiple events from the same game). With not much time left to make a decision, I quickly check the weather forecast in Gold Coast (where this game is taking place) and note that there is meant to be rain in the second half. (Spoiler: there was no rain in the second half). As this sport is played outdoors, this would favour the unders. So I come up with a bet that looks like this:
First quarter OVER 23.5
First half OVER 48.5
Full match UNDER 125.5
West Coast +34.5 handicap
Margin: either team by 1-39
Bontempelli 15+ disposals
Macrae 20+ disposals
ODDS: 4.10 A bet of $1250 would pay $5125. I was ready to place the bet. The problem? The match was only seconds from beginning. The time stamp on when the bet was accepted: 18:09:55 I made it by 5 measly seconds. Ok, so game begins rather uneventfully. Now it's worth noting for those who aren't familiar with AFL that you can score by 1's and 6's. It's late in the first quarter and the total is sitting at 22 points. Needing over 23.5, I'm in desperate need of a goal. The whole bet is about to come crashing down without it. With only seconds remaining a player marks the ball from a score-able position. The siren sounds. Now in AFL, if a mark is taken before the siren ("buzzer"), the player may take their kick. As luck would have it, this legend kicks it right through the middle of the goal posts, and the first quarter score ends on 28. We live on! Second quarter ends, and the combined total is 52 points. Again, we survive the over 48.5 by less than a full goal! (But this one cleared with a handful of minutes left to play, so there was no sweat involved). I'l wrap up the remainder of the game fairly quickly, as it is rather uneventful. The final score is 47-49, so the total under 125.5 hits easily, the +34.5 and margin 1-39 hit comfortably, and both players rack up well over their required disposals. Fantastic. My account hits $5125. By this stage, some would be satisfied. I wasn't. I was out for blood. The smart move would have been to withdraw, say, $4000. Play with the remaining $1125 (house money), and lock in a profit. But what's the fun in that? I scroll through the upcoming events and see that there is a Chinese Super League (soccer) match starting in a few hours. This isn't the first example of degeneracy in this story, but it's probably the biggest. So what do I do? Another Same Game Multi of course. And how much do I bet on it? $5125 of course. The bet:
Beijing Guoan: win or draw
Total corners: OVER 7.5
Total goals: OVER 1.5
BOTH teams to score in BOTH halves: No
ODDS: 1.95 A bet of $5125 would pay $9993.75 Here's where the rollercoaster of events begins. 5 minutes in, we have our first corner. 13 minutes in, we have our second. Corners are looking good. Fast forward to half time and Beijing are leading 2-0.
BOTH teams to score in BOTH halves: No = WINNER
Total goals: OVER 1.5 = WINNER
Beijing or draw = TBD, but looking good!
Corners OVER 7.5 = ONLY 2 FUCKING CORNERS IN THE FIRST HALF!
Remember, they had already accumulated 2 corners 13 minutes into the match. 32 minutes without a single corner! The live odds for over 7.5 were now over 3.00, and I was losing hope. The second half begins and approximately 10 minutes passes without a corner. I'm fucked. The next 15 minutes feels like God (aka Bob from NBA Daily Discussion) had blessed me. A flurry of corners results in an 8th corner before the 70th minute mark! What looked like a total sweat, turned into the easiest of victories. Or so I thought... The final leg: Beijing or draw - who by the way, were 1.50 favourites to win the match - were still up 2-0. One book had the opposing team at 81.00 odds to win from here. But you guys can guess what happened next. Wuhan goal! I'm still leading 2-1. My brain: "it's all good man, you still have a 1 goal buffer". Barely a few minutes later... Wuhan goal! It's now 2-2. My brain: "it's cool, you just need a draw, you're still likely to win this". Including the 6 minutes of added time, I have to sit through approximately 20 excruciating minutes of soccer, with just under $10k on the line. Luckily, Beijing did 75% of the attacking. Wuhan did have a few minor chances, but nothing that made the heart sink. The referee blew the full-time whistle, and I slowly unclenched my ass cheeks. I waited to see my account balance, just to make sure all was kosher. (You know, we've all been there, when we thought we bet on a certain team, but because their names are all Chinese, you actually bet on the wrong Beijing or something like that). My balance appeared at $9,993.75. It was time to call it a night. I reflected on the past 6 or so hours that I had just been through, and the 3 things that kept popping up in my mind again were timing, luck and degeneracy. P.S. Sorry to all the Djokovic and Heat backers. Brutal. Especially Djokovic. I'd say that's a once-in-a-career circumstance, but I think that would be understating how unlikely it is that the best player in the world get's DQ'd because he inadvertently hit a ball into an official's neck out of frustration.
Ten minutes the worth of Surface Duo observations - West El Paso Best Buy
The west El Paso Best Buy has its Surface Duo demo set up. Here are a few observations after playing it for about ten minutes:
If you have large pockets, it will fit in your pockets. If you do not have large pockets then it will be close. It fits in the standard size pocket of a men's dress shirt without the bumper. It would be a tight fit with the bumper.
It is incredibly thin and light weight. When folded, it is not much thicker than my iPhone 11 and weighs only about 50 grams more for two large screens.
All of the talk about the hinge is not hype. It is genuinely impressive. It is not just the smoothness but also the degree of resistance. This may sound odd but if you have spent two hours in an unpleasant conference call, you don't want a device that snaps shut. It has a comfortable level of resistance that reminds you that it is not an old clamshell phone. My impression is also that the hinge will give the same response in two years.
In terms of overall design, attention to detail reminds me of an Apple product. I am sorry but while Samsung makes great products and Google does great cameras, most of their devices just look like everything else on the market and don't convey any deeper concept of design. This looks and feels premium and like a design that started with a concept that was then taken to completion, not a pile of parts and specs and an order to fit them in one package.
The quality of the display is a match for the Note 10, stressing I am referring to the conventional Note 10 not the Note 10+. It also only takes a quick side by side comparison to be reminded of just how lousy the iPhone 11 LCD screen is in 2020.
If you want a high end camera, look at a flagship phone. The camera is just fine for general use and that is what is intended. It is not supposed to be amazing, just very solid.
The flip side on the camera is that it is probably the best on the market for video conferencing. Again, that is certainly what is intended.
As far as performance goes, people really need to drop all of the arguments about last year's processor. Simply running through the preloaded office apps and a few things like Google Maps, performance is absolutely stellar. Looking at the settings, it is not running some ramped up demo mode that you will find in most display models and performance is superior to my Note 10 by a comfortable margin and simply leaves my iPhone 11 in the dust.
The device was designed for multitasking both with respect to hardware and software optimization. It is fast, efficient, and elegant, and is absolutely intended for running multiple tasks. The closest alternative on the market is probably Samsung’s Note series but two screens are better than one for me. Samsung's Fold series is intended for media consumption whereas this is obviously meant for work.
As I expected, the bezels to which some object are very useful when working with documents. They create clear boundaries and definition which is appreciated (at least by me) for ease of reading. It also lets you pick up the device without having to think of how to pick it up to avoid messing with content along the margins. I have no doubt this is quite intentional.
Flipping it in landscape mode creates, by far, the best typing experience one is going to find on a still pocketable mobile device. It combines a much larger keyboard with Google's superior typing experience.
For those of us who travel, the dual screen arrangement will be exceptionally useful for things like Google Maps, particularly when that rental car lacks Android Auto or CarPlay.
Sorry but I can't comment on the pen response. Ironically, I actually had a Surface Pen in my pocket but forgot I had one with me. My bet is the slim pen is a better compliment but the conventional pen does of the advantage of its own (replaceable) battery.
To conclude, here are just a couple of additional observations. If you are waiting on a version 2, if this is successful, don't bet on seeing a high end camera module in it or wireless charging. They are definitely emphasizing thinness and quality of design in a business device. Neither are going to be prioritized and I doubt there is actually room for either to be included. I can guarantee you they will not sacrifice the design aesthetics for a camera bulge, which would also affect the seamlessness of the folded flip screen design. As for wireless charging, they might be able to fit a coil but I doubt it. Again though, this is obviously not meant to be a flagship phone. It is without a doubt intended to be a new class of business connected device. FWIW, I can see why Google is on board as well since it could open doors they have not been able to open to date. All in all, I was very impressed with it. Once they get Verizon certification in a few weeks, I will almost certainly be picking one up for field and office testing.
Bookie is a new app for iPhone and Android devices that allows you to bet on real sports games directly from your smartphone. What do you think of this app? Would you be interested in using it? Thanks!
Original Post got moved for having a referral link, dropping the text of the review sans referral link here. Hope anyone considering mint mobile finds it helpful. ------------- Most people don’t question a hefty Verizon Wireless bill. The coverage and network quality have been industry bests for years and so the “You Get What You Pay For” mantra kept my family entrenched for 13 years. Verizon recently provided semi-deceptive sales tactics and indifferent customer service prompting an exploration of the options. Not surprisingly cheaper plans abound, so the question is…do other service providers provide ‘good enough’ quality to go along with their too-good-to-be-true price points. Verizon did eventually make things right, but not until after hours on customer service chats and phone calls getting bounced between numerous Verizon associates. So like a slow rolling boulder loosened from it’s centuries-old resting place, my complacency had given way to a momentum pulling me from the “Can you hear me Now” network. So where does one start if contemplating a change from the biggest, arguably best and most expensive cellular service? First let’s discuss key industry dynamics.
The Big Players – Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T who own their towers and networks. They invest in brick and mortar stores and offer discounts on new phones which they can do as their plans are expensive. You may notice Sprint is not in this list which is due to them merging with T-Mobile in the past year.
The MVNOs – StraightTalk, Cricket, Mint Mobile, and a slew of other services buy time, in advance from the big 3. There are many names for these carriers, most are MVNOs (mobile virtual network operators) and they buy data and voice/text time at wholesale rates from the big guys. They save costs by limiting or not having Brick and Mortar expenses and getting discounted rates from the big networks through paying in advance for the bandwidth they will consume. These companies offer what are typically called Prepaid plans.
MVNO Alternatives – The biggest is Google Fi, they have MVNO elements where they buy time from other providers TMo and US Cellular, but they also have invested heavily in wifi hotspot technology that avoids using data on cell networks wherever possible. Google Fi is not prepaid and you pay a prorated consumption amount for data. If you use little data each month, this is likely the cheapest big name option. But the cost can approach the bigger players if consuming a lot of cellular data. It’s definitely worth a look though if you want to cut costs and they now support most of the major smartphone brands.
Second, each company has their own distinct features. The importance of each differs on one’s personal preferences.
Wifi Calling – This is critical for me. Living in the middle of a large neighborhood with few towers, our Verizon signal is always weak and so it’s necessary that I can place calls over our high-speed internet. Wifi calling, if you have strong internet, is clear, doesn’t break up and bridges the cell network gap when you regularly get 0 to 2 bars. And anywhere you get Wifi in the world, you can make calls and send texts. If you aren’t using it, this could be the easiest way to improve call quality from home, assuming your service provider offers it (the Big 3 all do, some of the MVNOs do not).
International Service – Cell savvy travelers will say, “just order a temporary SIM card for international calls and data,” and I’m sure that works, but I hate the idea of dealing with a new number and other difficulties that come with switching a SIM card. So I want to be able to get calls, texts and a limited amount of data when I travel from the same number I use in the States. Some of the cheaper MVNOs don’t offer international options and while I’m not a frequent traveler, we do travel enough to make this feature a necessity.
Hot Spot – Ability to turn you phone into a Wifi access point, connect PCs and tablets and then use mobile data to provide internet. A common feature on more expensive plans and a necessity for consumers that need to keep their laptop connected while on the go.
Bonus Perks – If you are trying to get the best value possible, going with the service that provides one year of Disney+ may be a sign you are paying more than you need to, however there are some great perks out there like T-Mobile’s free minutes and data while flying on many major US Air Carriers, which would be a colossal deal for frequent travelers.
Brick and Mortar Support – If you don’t like messing with Tech, having the option to walk into a store and have an associate fix your problem is a compelling reason to stay with one of the big providers.
Payment Plans and Contracts – Almost all MVNO’s require pay-in-advance (PrePaid) and some require bulk purchasing 3, 6 and 12 month packages to get their best rates (Mint does). While I don’t see much risk in prepaying for a single month’s service, prepaying for 12 months brings risk as it’s unlikely you can get the money back in most scenarios. Contracts are the big guys way to lock your money into a promise-to-pay plan. Unless receiving a free or deeply discounted phone, I like to avoid contracts on the Big 3.
Data Sharing Plans – Ability to pay for a set amount of data and share it between 2 or more lines, usually on a family plan. If a service doesn’t have data sharing, you will need more total data across all phone lines than what you’d need in a shared data plan to satisfy a family’s demand. As an example, we were on a 5GB shared data plan and would likely need 2.5-3GB per line if switching to a non-shared plan to ensure we don’t hit our data caps.
Lastly, let’s not forget Cost. After considering features and soliciting friends’ opinions about T-Mobile’s network (which weren’t great by the way), I found a plan that was too inexpensive not to try. Mint Mobile is an MVNO that piggybacks on the T-Mobile network. I’m trying their 3-month trial plan that provides unlimited talk/text and 3GB of 4G/5G data per month for $15/mo. They offer Wifi Calling, options to purchase International Prepaid Credits and had the cheapest plan I found along with many online reviewers calling them a top MVNO. I don’t want anyone unhappy from something I recommend, so below are pros & cons to review before considering a switch. If you’d like to try it out, you can save $15 off their three month trial, which costs $45 paid in full ($15/mo) for the 3GB data plan before the $15 credit. If you need more data there are other offerings; $60 ($20/mo) for 8GB, $75 for 12GB and $90 ($30/mo) for the Unlimited data plan. I’ve also only been using their network for 3 weeks now, so your results may vary, but since the plans are cheap and you can bring your current phone, there is little financial risk to trying them out as long as you aren’t currently on a contract. PROS
Price – Bottom line first…Mint will save my family over $840/yr if we switch all 3 of our lines over. With 3 lines on Verizon and 5GB of shared data we paid well over $115 a month. Mint doesn’t do shared data, but 3 lines with 3GB data each (9GB total) costs $45 per month. Less than 40% of the cost of Verizon.
Strong City Coverage & Respectable Network – T-Mobile, once the 4th biggest carrier, is now 2nd after merging with Sprint. T-Mobile’s network has been a couple bars stronger inside grocery stores and buildings than what I would get from Verizon in my town. This will vary based on your locale, but in Richmond, the coverage is great. I’m not certain if Mint uses the acquired Sprint towers but you can find the Mint Coverage Map Here. Full disclosure, I found Mint’s rural coverage on the map to be optimistic, see the Cons section below.
Wifi Calling and Texting is Available – If you have strong internet at your house or in a hotel, you don’t need to rely on cell signals. Turn on wifi calling for clear VOIP-like calls over your cell phone. Not all MVNO providers offer wifi calling.
Low Risk Trial – if you want the $15 credit you’ll have to add a 3 month plan at discounted rates. I tried the 3GB plan for my line at $45 over 3 months. If I hate it, I can port my number back to one of the big providers and take advantage of ‘New Line’ incentives that I wouldn’t have gotten from Verizon otherwise. With the referral you can pay as little as $30 for 3 months.
No Risk Trial – if you want to forego the $15 credit you can buy a trial sim card kit off Amazon for $5 or less which will give you a weeks service to test the network for yourself. I tried this initially but I didn’t like that I couldn’t try out the full service (Wifi Calling, logging into a Mint account) and I didn’t like having a temporary phone number no one knew. I upgraded after 4 days.
International Roaming – No, it’s not free, but it is available. You can buy international roaming credits to use international cell networks. For an infrequent international traveler, this is perfect as I’ll mostly use Wifi calling, but want emergency minutes on hand for the unforeseen.
Hotspot is included!
Phone Customer Service – I’ve called 3 times, never waited more than 3 minutes to talk to someone and they are helpful. A phone agent walked me through the number porting process, telling me how to start the port process on Verizon’s website with expert knowledge of Verizon’s website.
No Data Overage Fees or Hard Caps – If I use more than 3GB of 4G data, no problem, Mint just slows me down from 5G/4G to 3G and then in theory I have unlimited 3G. If I need more cowbell then I can buy another gig of 5G/4G at $10 or 3 gigs at $20.
Network Data Speed – I haven’t tested Mint’s 5G, but I’m getting full 4G LTE download speeds when I have 3-4 bars. 5G is a jaw-dropping evolution, but I’m doubtful the average user needs it, so I’m foregoing the expense of a 5G phone until the technology becomes ubiquitous. But for those that own phones for 4+ years and are buying soon, it may makes sense to go with a 5G capable device.
Bring Your Own Phone – most all modern phones work on the network. Androids, Iphones, etc, if you have a phone that is 3yrs or newer, you likely won’t need to buy a new phone and the website will tell you if you have a compatible phone. Setup on my brand new Pixel 4a would have been terribly easy (had I not screwed it up), plop in SIM card, turn on and everything would have worked. Setup for my older Pixel XL (first generation) was trickier…see the Cons list.
Ryan Reynolds – Mom and Dad love that campy Canadian, so they aren’t giving me grief about cheaping out on my cellular plan, since he owns the company.
Initial Setup Complexity – This isn’t a whopper of a con personally as I’m a gadget geek, but this could be a tremendous dissatisfier for many. Upon initial setup with my first generation Google Pixel phone, I had to go deep into phone settings and configure a new ‘APN’. I’ve never done this before and I imagine Verizon would do this automatically. If you don’t set up the APN correctly things like wifi calling or MMS texting (group, image, gif text) will not work or worse yet, the phone won’t get data or calls at all. An internet search showed that there are 4-5 APN configs out there that customers use for different older phones. If any trouble setting up, don’t solve it yourself, call the phone contact center at (213) 372-7777 from a different phone and have them walk you through it. There is good news for owners of new phones as I acquired a Pixel 4a after joining Mint, and the out-of-the box APNs that came on the SIM card worked flawlessly. Unfortunately I was overthinking it, and tried to follow the same setup process from when I configured the first-generation Pixel APNs when I should have let it just work out of the box. I wasted a morning until I finally went to Mint’s chat channel and they guided me on how to get back to the defaults I should have used in the first place. In short, if you aren’t a fan of working with customer service remotely to dial in the functions of your phone and you have an older phone, Mint may not be for you.
No Brick and Mortar Stores – This is a key way Mint passes savings onto the consumer. If you have a problem you must use their chat agents or their call center and can’t walk into a store for help.
Prepay in Full – To get the absolute cheapest price after the 3 month intro rate, you’ll have to prepay for 12 months. For me this will be $180+taxes ($15/mo) for a year of 3Gig/month 5G/4G cell service or $240+taxes ($20/mo) if you want the 8GB plan. You can also prepay in full for 6 months or in 3 month increments, but the shorter duration prepays increase the monthly cost $5 and $10 respectively. If my 3 month trial goes off without a hitch I will purchase 12 months in full.
Deprioritization – Since Mint buys coverage from T-Mobile when T-Mobile cell towers are overloaded, TMo reserves the right to slow data speeds for Mint customers to prioritize their direct customers. I haven’t experienced this yet and if my data slows down infrequently, I don’t see that as a huge deal, but it could be for anyone who’s phone is symbiotically growing into their hand.
Rural Coverage – on a drive from Richmond to Boonesboro, MD, there were a number of dead zones on the country roads 20 minutes outside of Richmond and before Culpepper. From Culpepper, VA to Boonesboro, MD Mint had great coverage. I was driving these scenic byways while using a trial SIM card, and so maybe it’s possible the trial SIM accessed fewer towers, but I can’t be certain, so for now I’m going to assume the coverage map is optimistic. My wife’s Verizon phone had service in most of the rural areas, and only a few dead zones. Rural coverage is one of Verizon’s key strengths and a reason to keep their service if you live outside the burbs. Interestingly I’ve found several cases where Verizon’s suburb/city signals are weaker within buildings than T-Mobile’s (Mint Mobile).

T-Mobile – now that I’ve tested their network, I’m happy, but they will be more expensive than Mint although cheaper than Verizon. I recently saw a stat that said T-Mobile’s network covers 64% of the US and Verizon 73%, but don’t remember where. Cost difference between Mint Mobile and T-Mobile was too great to choose anything but Mint, but if I was a frequent flyer, their perks with minutes and data in the air would likely pull me into the fold. My daughter is crushed that she won’t get to take advantage of the free upgrade to an Iphone 11 deal on TMo at the time of writing this review.
Google FI – Now supporting non Google phones and iPhone. Potentially they have the best coverage of all plans as they contract with several major networks. If you aren’t a heavy data user, Google Fi will also be fairly inexpensive. Not as cheap as Mint, but if you want that sweet spot of low cost and great coverage Google Fi may be the best bet if you aren’t data hungry. Fi charges $17 per line (at time of this blog) and a pro-rated $10 per gig of data used, so heavy data consumers would pay a lot on Google Fi. But people that keep data usage to less than 2 gigs a month can expect to pay less than $37/mo per line.
AT&T – I didn’t look for long. The prices are equivalent to Verizon and their coverage is nationally the worst out of the big 3. I have an AT&T hotspot in our car and can confirm it drops out more frequently than what I’ve experienced on Mint in Virginia. So not paying the same as Verizon to get less.
DATA SAVING TECHNIQUES TO REDUCE YOUR BILL
Obvious 1: Keep wifi on as often as possible.
Obvious 2: Don’t stream video or do extensive web surfing on your cell phone if it can wait until you are on wifi, and less face it, it can usually wait.
Turn on Wifi calling as for some providers this also prompts your phone to send data-using MMS (group) messages over wifi, saving cell data.
Android phones have a data saver setting, you can turn this on to keep apps from running in the background. But it might also delay notifications from apps that need background data to do their thing.
In settings there is usually a networks section where you can click on your cell provider, see how much data has been used this month and further drill into finding apps that are using the most data. Configure non-essential apps to not consume data in the background. Be careful not to do this for an app that is required to operate the phone.
Chrome and many apps have settings to disable videos and audio from playing automatically, turn these auto-play settings off, if you can find them.
Google Maps has an ability to download over wifi the map for a big section of most states. Downloading your region will enable Maps to use less data.
YouTube and other video services usually allow you to downgrade video quality to 240p which is plenty good for cell phones and should use over 60% less data than 480p videos if you are hell bent on using a cell phone as a TV off of Wifi.
I’m happy with Mint Mobile’s service after 3 weeks. If you live in a big town or city, it may be a really good fit to save money. I wish I would have called their customer service when I initially had setup issues, rather than trying to figure it out myself. You should bring a phone and Mint Mobile doesn’t offer cell phone discounts but does appear to offer payment plans. If you need a new phone and don’t want to break the bank, you can’t go wrong with the Pixel 4a or Pixel 4a 5G coming out soon. And now that I’ve made the switch I don’t anticipate going back and spending more, but we’ll see if there are gotchas waiting in the wings.
Black MP is stopped seemingly for driving while black, is the driver black enough? does the MP use an android phone? Do blacks commit more crime? Is Racial Profiling the same as car insurance? Detectives over at /r/ukpolitics are on the case
Just tested on Open Camera, as well as my phone's default camera app. Front facing camera displays mirrored image on the screen but records it as normal.
my old android does flip the image unlike an iPhone so it’s possible it depends which manufacturer you have a phone from Is it all one video? Because I've seen flipped and unflipped versions, someones been flipping something...
Has anyone on android verified the automatically flipped footage yet? Not the case on iPhone.
Android doesn't "flip" videos. Why would anyone even think this?
Only time will tell if the detectives of ukpolitics got to the bottom of this important issue.
Was the driver black enough to be racially profiled
It’s just hilarious how many people are suddenly obsessed with the precise skin tone of an anonymous man and how many internet detectives are desperately trying to find ways to prove or suggest that Dawn Butler is lying rather than just wait until the whole thing comes out in the wash.
If I get pulled over by a black police officer can I say the exact same thing as she did? People need to learn to shut their mouths and listen to the officer conducting the stop before assuming anything that's what has pissed me off couldn't give two fucks if she is multi coloured like a rainbow.
Maybe because they are disproportionately poor and poor people commit more crime due to lack of opportunity...
That is the worst excuse I’ve ever heard. White working class people in the early 1900s were 10x poorer than the poorest British black youth of today and they didn’t go around stabbing people in the streets.
