        Cheap fire tv stick. No Amazon prime video on the chromecast, so time to replace it.

        funny next week I end Prime. trying to come up with something to buy to use up a $10 credit, before I kill it. Ran out of shows to watch this summer on Prime so moving to Netflix. It was fun when I could watch all seasons of old Top Gear.

        We call it Amazon garage day sale in my family, though the QC25's are at a decent deal on the .ca site: $150 CAD. May get a pair of those, that or the Sennheiser 4.50s.

        1803 was live in March, but depending on your machine it may have been just recently or maybe not yet.

        Don't underestimate nice UI, though. That's basically what attracted me to JRiver - plus all the automation stuff it has for syncing devices, auto-transcoding and so forth.

        Lots of people wouldn't hesitate to spend $70 on a more comfy headphone cable, after all. A nicer-feeling player with better browse and search UI? Not so minor.

        Part of why I've been using F2k for years is the fact that I could load the screen with all sorts of visualisations to help me learn how to listen and what to listen for, haha. Incidentally, I used to work in marketing, so I know how much a pretty package influences perception of quality :P

        But yeah, reserving a hard call until I get to spend more time with A+ and the fancy box loses its influence.

        Going the other way I had a friend visit me from Texas and I brought them to Pink's Hot Dogs. The place is known for crazy combos like bacon/guacamole/sour creme or pastrami and sauerkraut. What does he get? The chili dog.
