Apple iPhone 8 for $999… No way!

Sorry Apple, I love your products but no way am I dropping a grand for something that has a better than average chance of falling on the ground and being destroyed.

Sorry, I’ll spend that money on something else. My iPhone 6s Plus still does the job. Plus I won’t feel like I just burned a thousand dollars in Vegas when I accidentally drop it. AppleCare you say, that’s another $129 plus a deductible, probably more for the iPhone 8.

Might be one of the longest dry spells in history for me buying anything Apple. Sad.

Verizon’s New Unlimited Plans

Verizon is announcing new unlimited plans this week which seems as convoluted as picking a health plan.

In the end, the goal is to confuse consumers as much as possible while reducing service and increasing prices.

Still glad I switched to T-Mobile from AT&T as they are currently the least repulsive of the bunch.

Corvette Stingray

I have to give props to GM at least on the last two cars I’ve owned; a 2013 Camaro ZL1 and a 2016 Corvette Stingray.

The Camaro was simply fantastic to drive, massive acceleration with superb handling to boot.

The Corvette is a different beast altogether to drive. Even in the Stingray version, the handling is fantastic and acceleration even quicker than the Camaro due to less weight. The interior which was updated greatly for this generation is quite nice and makes it feel more in line with European car makers.

It’s fantastic to drive on long road trips and it’s a joy every time I get in it.

And it gets 30 MPG on the highway!

The latest generation of Corvette is definitely not just for old guys with gold chains anymore.

Apple MacBook Pro

I was hoping that the latest revision of the laptops would have at least 32GB of memory but it was not to be. I guess it’s going to be a while before Apple gets any more of my money with the newest laptops not really giving me reason to buy.

Similar to the iPhones, just not compelling enough for me to spend that amount of money on their product and it would cost me money beyond purchasing the laptop, namely spending at least $100 on DisplayPort to USB-C dongles or purchase a port replicator that’s USB-C compatible.
