Computers and Technology / Suggest a new smartphone
My Galaxy Note 1 is now 5.5-6 years old, and its starting to show, badly. Would appreciate recommendations for replacement phones. I don't need the really large form factor as I now have a 2-in-1 laptop/tablet thingy to read PDFs on. Needs to be unlocked and ideally less than a grand. My partner got a Motorola Play thingy that is really awesome, but I would like something a little more current, perhaps an S6 or S7 Edge. Really like what I am seeing about the Pixel.

Pence had used the AOL account since the mid-1990s and continued to use it throughout his time as governor until early 2016, when the account was compromised by a hack. Hackers leveraged his contacts to launch a phishing attack against his contact lists, sending an email claiming that Pence and his wife were stranded in the Philippines and needed financial help.

After the account was hacked, it was shut down and Pence began using a second AOL account, an aide said.

Pence was a vocal critic of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state and often criticized her for it during the presidential campaign.

Arts and Entertainment / Star Wars: The Old Republic
Been playing the new content, starting from Shadow of Revan, that has dropped since I last quit playing it. The game is vastly better than a few years ago--almost all content has solo modes so you can play through for stories without having the need to try and get a pickup raid group of randos or really deal with any other people.

Its also free to play now, but if you have ever subscribed in the past you get "preferred" status with more stuff unlocked. Also if you click my referral link you can try it out with full subscriber settings to see if you want to mess with it further.

A new expansion just dropped two weeks ago too so now is a pretty good time to come back if you thought about it before (hi Sparklecat!)  :reign:

Politics and Current Events / Dakota Pipeline standoff
really heating up now. Here is what the AP says:

Spin emphasizes injuries to dogs and security guards. What is not mentioned is that the dogs were chomping on everyone, including their own handlers. No mention of the injured protesters, just reporting from the perspective of the company. Disgraceful coverage AP.
