    What does the Fox say?

    I think part of it is that the free phones back in the day were around $200 or so. I remember when getting my Moto V360, I had to pay $150 or $200 out of pocket to upgrade from the free model. Same with the Samsung Behold. You're right that plans haven't decreased in price though.

    What does the Fox say?

    I didn't go through with the upgrade. It would have been $640 out of pocket plus taxes for two phones, so I'll just keep the S7. As cool as the S9 would have been, I think I'll keep this one around for another couple of years hopefully.

    What does the Fox say?

    Costco has a trade-in deal on the new Samsung S9 where I can buy the S9 for $679 and trade in my GS7 Edge for a $360 gift card, so $319 out of pocket. Do you think the upgrade is worth it? My main concern is the battery since I'd be going from 3,600 mAH to 3,000 mAH. edit: I should note I paid around $360 for my S7 Edge so I'd be getting the full value back.

    lol, that's exactly what it felt like. I asked how he got my number and he never replied after that.

    These head hunters are getting out of hand. I just got a text from one after not picking up his call.

    Ultra low temperature lighting

    Does anyone know of any LED lighting that can be used at -50°C? It seems most manufacturers only test down to -40°C. We are currently using incandescent bulbs in our application, but the heat and electrical loads are pretty large. I'm sure somebody in Alaska has used some for outdoor lighting that work on those super cold days.

    Finance anyone?

    I've been trying to get my family's finances in order for a couple of years now. Now with a second child on the way, I think it's definitely time to get it all straightened out - college savings! Do you guys handle it all yourselves or do you have an adviser help you out with that sort of stuff. I've been doing a lot of reading on investing options and such, but I don't know if this is something I should consult a professional about.

    Heat generated by concrete?

    Hey guys, I'm trying to find a reference to determine the heat generated by 1 cubic yard of curing concrete. I just need an estimate for my cooling loads, but I can't seem to find anything online. Anybody have an idea of where to look? Thanks!

    Cast Your Pod Here!

    I've been listening to the Heavyweight series and it is pretty awesome. If you only listen to one, I highly recommend episode #12 Jesse. The onions are strong with this one.

    The Automotive Thread

    Just finished changing out the battery on my G37. It was dead when we got back from the holidays and it's died a couple of times already so I figured it was time. It only took me around 30 minutes as opposed to the bimmer. That car took me 2 hours of trying to get that battery out and the new one in.

    This morning I read that it snowed on the Sahara for the 3rd time in 40 years. So this popped into my head:
