The Verge Off-Topic Weekender: Weekend at thervp's (26-27 Apr)
Welcome to The Verge Daily Off-Topic. What is this thread you ask? It's your daily community off-topic thread where you're given the floor to talk about anything that's caught your eye over the past 24 hours. Just be sure to stick to The Verge's Community Guidelines, and we'll have no issues here folks.
So yeah, let's just gloss over the fact that I was unable to do the Verge Daily yesterday, and let's bring it back full force today! Here's 90 Seconds on the Verge!
- HTC's head of design is leaving the company
- SpaceX wants to launch military payloads, protests Boeing and Lockheed dominance
- Oregon is switching to Healthcare.gov from its own troubled exchange
- Saudi Arabia joins the killer drone arms race
- Reboot: these stunning still-life photos will take you back to the future
I really hated it when it was announced (like big time). Admittedly the back does look like a plaster, but it does feel quite nice. I also prefer metal phones, they just have a better feel to them. I think the main thing now is getting used to the MASSIVE screen compared to the iPhone (it looks really great actually).
Im also happy because I have apps like Mailbox and IFTTT ;)
now if only I could find a good twitter client…

Well, the stage, lights, and sound are all set for rehearsals now. There are a few people there today, but I am home working on school work. The school's spotlight has a blown bulb, so I had to order a couple and get overnight Saturday delivery to my house so I could get the bulbs in time ($68 for two $8 bulbs from Amazon).
