    Irony here is I found DaVinci easier (or at least more obvious) to use than the stupid editing tools from GoPro

    There was something weird with the HDMI 2.1 being offically published/supported. I know it was ratified ages ago, but a lot of HDMI 2.0 devices can be upgraded with just firmware

    My amp (Yamaha RX-V6a brand new this month) has HDMI 2.0 published, but firmware update in Dec will bring offical 2.1

    Google's version of this is interesting, it does this and switches automatically but since it's an MVNO your number just moves around.

    I use Google FI in the US, so T&-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular. It's normally connected to T/Sprint at the same time (even though technically that's the same company now)

    That I might miss on the iPhone I don't think it's capable of auto-switching depending on performance (and neither do multiplexing)

    well I guess you might need a decent bit of cash given the property prices lol (rent is almost on par with San Francisco)

    There are second property's (aka ones non-Swiss can buy) but they are rare in tourist spots and go for serious money.

    "If you are a foreigner without a residence permit, the Swiss Federal Law on the Acquisition of Property by Persons Abroad (LFAIE) also known as “Lex Koller” applies to you (effective since 1984). This law restricts the amount of holiday homes that foreigners may purchase to 1500 a year"

    You don't have to be minted to live there either, it's just not very easy (I've lived there twice but both times in the Canton the work was in)

    I'm moving over from Android (Pixel 4XL) but kinda not sure which of the new Iphone 12 to buy.
    Max is out, but the other three all are tempting.

    I think I'll end up with the 12 Pro though (and I do have 5G mmWave coverage where I am)

    I've still got my flights to Switzerland booked for March. This year was the first in 20 years that I've not been in Zermatt. We were ready to drive up (folks live in Swizterland) and our friend called us to say don't bother they are closing the next day :(

    The quarantine is a bit of a shit, but I guess I might go for a month then

    man I never thought I'd see the day... yeah the Pixels are like "Do what you want, even if we don't recommend it", Apple is like "Our way, or the highway" (mostly or fuck off cuz you can't do it)

    See that's the interesting bit... Apple better glass but Google WAY better processing. However I'm the weird man who runs around with a Sony A7r, but running Canon Glass so yeah

    I am enjoying the watch and the randomness, and the fact that Apple just works, but I do worry about the YOU MUST DO IT OUR WAY OR NO WAY (which is why it just works but....)
