I am not! I only have an Edge+, Gear S2, 2 shirts, 1 hoodie, and probably a contract that states they own my soul. That's it!

It's not like I dream of having a Samsung washer/dryer or fridge or anything. Or like I subscribe to their newsletters.

Jeez...

All our appliances are samsung in our house. They were there when we bought the place. They mostly work fine...we have some minor issues with the washer (nasty odor and doesn't drain properly) and dishwasher (doesn't always dry properly). Sorry to ruin your dreams, but maybe there are better brands for these types of appliances?

Front load washer? Don't close the door on it. It's always suppose to be open and airing out.

We do leave it open. We even pull the detergent tray out too...still occasionally has an odor. We think it's due to the draining problem.

I have some friends who have the Samsung washer and dryer and love it. They even replaced the old Saumsungs with new Saumsungs when they felt like they were getting a little inefficient/old.

Microsoft boasted it had rebuilt Skype 'from the ground up'. Instead, it should have buried it
Microsoft last month declared that it had rebuilt its Skype app "from the ground up." Those who use the app have been busy tearing it down.

Reviews of the Android and iOS versions of the app have been mostly terrible, and those posted to the Windows App Store have not been much better.

-you can no longer make your video full screen
-video call outside Skype no longer works
-rear camera does not focus on tap
-can no longer snap a picture by tapping the screen or pressing a volume button
-the "call back" feature doesn't work
And worst of all:
-Skype no longer advertises itself as a possible Android "sharing" intent. So you cannot share a link, picture, content using Skype

Do any of you use Skype on mobile? Because of Hangouts and Duo I don't even have Skyped installed anymore.

It does come in handy though for people without smart phones.

What's Skype? Oh another product Microsoft acquired to stay relevant. I use Skype for business for work. Does that count? Also, I don't video chat. Maybe because both my parents and my wife's live in the same town as me? Video chatting has never been a thing for me anyway.

Yeah, you have no reason to video chat your parents. 1) Same town. 2) no kids.

I do a group video chat with members of CPT almost every week when we play video games, but we are weird.

We're not weird! How else are we supposed to make our significant others feel awkward when they're in the background while we play video games?

This could just as easily be voice only. You guys just do it to be goofy

We do it because we love each other and don't get to see each other enough.

And yes, so we can show off our wives in the background.
