I’ve tried a couple times now to switch my iPhone phone/data/text service from AT&T to Tello. I managed to get my daughter on their service with her iPhone 5 and later her iPhone 6. No problems there. My iPhone 6s didn’t want to go, despite AT&T claiming it was unlocked. Maybe the phone started life on Sprint and they hadn’t unlocked it. That’s possible.
Tonight, I switched my new-to-me jet black iPhone 7 256GB from AT&T, where I’ve used it a couple days, to Tello. No problems. Fast internet. So far (half an hour in), so good. I’m getting 200 voice minutes, unlimited texting (which I won’t use much of since I text few people without iPhones) and 1GB of data per month. $5/mo more to double that to 2GB/month. We’ll see how 1GB goes.
I bought my Onewheel+ during their Pioneers promo in late 2016. I loved it. At around 70 miles cumulative, I really started to have a good time on it. At 80-something miles, I took a spill, breaking my arm. I hung onto the board until about a week ago when I put it up for sale on my wife’s Facebook account. I sold it tonight a nice fella who wanted it as a second for the OneWheel+ XR which expects delivery of in April of this year (2018). I’ll miss it a lot, but my plan is to switch down to electric skateboards and hope that that gives me something like the enjoyment I extracted from my Onewheel, but with a little less skill required to keep both feet on the board.
27 May 2018: I still miss my Onewheel. From the moment I started using its replacement, a Metroboard 36” Mid-size Gravity-decked electric skateboard, I’ve maintained the impression that my Onewheel was actually safer overall for me. Oh, man.
My 24” Dell monitor wasn’t cutting it on my Mac Mini, so I looked up the maximum resolution it would push (2560×1600 at 60Hz) and went hunting. I found a good condition Dell 30” U3014 on eBay for $250 and went for it. It arrived today. It’s incredible. Wonderful for viewing, sharing and presumably for editing photos. I didn’t care that it was factory calibrated and should have really accurate color rendition… until I used it. Now I’m a believer, in this resolution, this size, and high-end, factory-calibrated monitors.
The Morning After Update 3 March 2018: It’s still beautiful. Been using it today. Very spacious. I use three monitors on my computer at work and that’s also a good setup. I want one addition monitor here at home to supplement this one. A place to dump windows I’m not working with but might want to hear from, such as Messages.
