finally got new phones

The last time was Nov. 2018, got the iPhone (my first) Xs for $249. That's my budget really.

Friday, ordered the iPhone 13 Pro and it turned out to be $298. I guess they want to get rid of them. At work some 14 Pro's shipped.

There are two catches.

1. Has to be a new line so new number, it's not an upgrade

What Happened To TomTom U.S.A.?

I was looking at adding Tom Tom maps to my Google Pixel 6 yesterday, but when I went to the Tom Tom app in the Google Play Store it offered me a free trail, before I purchased.

What Smartphone/Tablet Would Be Most Similar To A Garmin Automobile Navigator?

I still use my Garmin GPS devices, but the shortcomings become more evident when I travel a bit farther from my home area. I keep my Garmin maps updated, but Google Maps has new streets and businesses much sooner than Garmin does.

THM Files

I just purchased a Kodak Camera to replace my old faithful Fujifilm. I noticed that now with the new camera for every JPG file I now have a THM file to match it on the SD card.
