Q- how's the note 5? Currntly have a 4 and the battery doesn't seem to last as long as it did. Thinking of upgrading but they say a note 6 is in the works

I'm mostly happy with the 5. The battery is a sticky point for me at the moment. Battery is lousy because I'm in an area with so so reception and my job is a bunker. The battery feels about the same compared to the 4. I was driven to upgrade because of camera and reception issues. Aside from capped memory and battery, I am good. I would take this over the 4 any day of the week.


The Note 6 is probably 6 months away. The 5 was launched in late August. The S7 series was just now announced with the same battery power as the Note 5.

Thanks for your input. I'm still pretty happy with the 4. I'll probably wait for the 6

Yeah, if you are happy with the 4, you may as well wait.

We all collect plastic sunglasses and talk about it online. Nothing more nerdy to the rest of the world than that, so don't worry on it. We're all in good company. ;-) - Oak

Very awsome!
I have a note 5, as qlr1 says about the battery and memory it's still a good product. I have a rather large collection of... dare I say Ray Ban. However unlike the O, I can't find a collectors website devoted to them so my main focus is on Oakley!

Would love to see your RB collection one day, Dave.

I fear the prices of B&L RBs if they ever become an organized group. There are tons of them out there and willing to pay a lot of money. I've always wanted an Antarctica Deep Freeze (the version with the bottom cheek bar) but not willing to shell out $2-3k for a NOS version.

There are collectors for everything. Who knew there were "dodo enthusiasts ", much less those that would pay over $400k for its skeleton:

I can sort of see it. Maybe not dodo specific, and not 400k range, but the dodo is fairly iconic, and if you were a specimen collector, that would be a nice addition. Imagine there weren't many skeletons intact given the nature of its extinction.

That's a good point. Most would end up in museums anyways, so when a 90% complete skeleton is available, the private collectors need to be ready to bid high.

So....United Cutlery. Those who collects swords and knives will tell you that United Cutlery produces crap, and they're right. Their products, especially the blades, are typically poor quality. The saving grace of the brand is in their licensing, producing cool looking art pieces whose only function is to look good as display pieces. They have produced licensed product from Lord of the Rings, Rambo, GI Joe, The Expendables, Kit Rae, Gil Hibben, etc.

One such line I was enamoured with when I saw it some 15 years ago was Samurai 3000. The concept was simply what samurai and ninja swords would look like two millennia from now. I thought the hilt and scabbard looked so awesome. Futuristically cool.

Over the weekend, I was able to buy the ninja sword and tanto for $30. Hopefully I will find the katana version soon for as low a price and complete the collection:

+ $45 shipping. Shipping on swords kills deals, since you can typically get them for a lower total price regionally. I'm hoping one shows up locally for less than what it costs to even ship.
