Samsung Galaxy S8+ Review

I will start this off by saying that the Galaxy S8+ is the best smart Phone I have owned, the last two being LGs (G4 and G5). In particular, the Snapdragon 835 chip really does cut power consumption. My phone easily lasts a full day. It is really responsive, and the screen is great.

But Samsung has absolutely terrible support

Now Panasonic joins the bad support club

After the last firmware update on mt Panasonic Lumix DMC GX-8 camera body, The auto review screen changed so that 3/4 of it was information, and 1/4 image. I could not figure out how to change this, so I went online and tried their online chat.

When the representative answered, she sent me instructions to reset the camera. I responded that this was not what I wanted to do, and that it takes forever to reset all menu items. She never responded and left me sitting there.

I got banned by Piccure+ for requesting support

About a year ago, I bought a German program called Piccure+. In principle, this program does the best job at sharpening blurred images due to lens softness or to camera shake. But it has a very strange (very German!) user interface, and more important, even though they claim support for DxO OpticsPro (my favorite photo editing program), I could never get it to work with DxO.
