A rare review post after all these months. With warmer weather, I have less inclination to read and am tempted to do walkies.
Sightings, walking the west side bike path:
– 3 Boosted
– 1 Boosted Mini
– 1 unidentified (UID) eScooter (DIY?)
– 1 eScooter (Glion Dolly?)
– 1 Xiaomi M365-style UID eScooter
– 1 UID eScooter
– 1 Ninebot/Segway ES-style eScooter
– 54 electric CitiBike (not a typo or prank)
Alt-Wheels have won. The Department of Transportation needs to shut off their stupid “eBikes are Illegal” sign at Canal Street.
On the tech side of things…
iPad Mini 5 is impressive just in the quick test I gave it of The American Magazine and an issue of Processed World. It took a lot of effort for me to crash the Books app with the first, not so much effort with the second.
Best Buy had the BLU Vivo XI+ on sale for US$219. This is the version with less RAM and onboard storage. I don’t know what transpired software-wise since my last test back in October, but this time I was very impressed with the camera. Did BLU or Google push out an update that fixed it? Maybe it was the lighting at that particular Best Buy? I don’t know. Amazon still has the model with more storage for US$329 at post time. That price difference almost makes it worthwhile to buy the Best Buy version despite its multitasking limitations.
