Did Disney princes earn sales commissions?

The iPhone 7s were pretty but really not all that different from the 6 I currently have. The dual camera is the major hardware upgrade, and I'm not feeling that I need it. And no headphone jack! I truly do need headphones that physically connect to the phone instead of floating like loose orphans in my ear (especially at the gym). And it looks like a eunuch with no headphone jack on the bottom! So at present I'm thinking the 7 is not my next phone. What it actually will be I couldn't tell you.

Andrew and I did have a fun time in the Apple Store. Our Uber driver magically helped us avoid the mess that is Wisconsin Ave. (though he wasn't a super great navigator otherwise), and the Genius whisked his iMac away for 3-5 days following a quick diagnosis. Then he tried on watches and we both tried the fancy iPhone 7 camera before leaving to pick through sale items at Zara and TJ Maxx.

In other news, I will officially be paying off a student loan when I get paid at the end of the week! Prior entries have amply described how awful Navient/Sallie Mae is, so I'll save the keystrokes and just be happy I am about to be done with them forever. Two student loan servicers to go after that!

I have to say it: I'm finding all this first-world manufactured anguish over the missing headphone jack to be utterly hilarious. :)

It is very much a first-world non-problem. :) But ever since the early iPod days I have listened to music in the same way and my gym routine has formed around it. So Tim Cook can take that feedback and ignore it!
