Garmin Connect — Android & iOS– Is Now At 4.2 (As Of January 13, 2018).

by Anura Guruge



Garmin Connect updated to 4.2 this morning, automatically, on my ASUS ZenPad 10.1″ running Android 7.0.

Smooth update. No issues. Accessed my prior data, seamlessly, as soon as it initalized itself. So far, so good. Noticed that it now ‘flashes’ a ‘device connected’ message when it makes Bluetooth contact.

This update is consistent with Garmin’s recent claim to provide monthly updates — at a minimum — for all of its software.

We were, with Garmin Connect, at 4.1.11 (which was released around December 8, 2017). So, the timing was on the mark.

Interesting that it is 4.2 rather than 4.1.12.

Garmin Express, earlier this week, was updated to 6.0.

So, it would appear that Garmin, in January, starts off with fresh ‘release number’ builds — rather than incremental updates.

Garmin Connect, unlike Garmin Express, should AUTO-UPDATE.

If you do not have 4.2 on your Mobile you might want to force an update.


So, as of Saturday, January 13, 2018:

Garmin Connect — 4.2

Garmin Express — 6.0

Vivoactive 3 — 2.9

Got that?

The Teeth-Chattering, Stupendous Explosion In Amazon Stock Price Is Downright SCARY!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Underlying ‘chart’ from MarketWarch.com, of course.


One Year Growth

Jan. 13, 2017 = $817 –> Jan. 12, 2018 = $1,305.

$488 in 1 year.

60% increase.


Not sour grapes, by any means, on my part. {Smile}

Just the sober reflections of someone who owned shares during THE ‘dot.com‘ and remember seeing explosions similar to this.

Too much, too fast.

The 2-weeks on 2018 has been just, downright crazy.

AMZN has gone up nearly every day — of every day bar one.

Too fast.

I worry that people are going to get burned.

Is Huawei Mate 10 The Only Smartphone Likely To Be Spying On Us?

by Anura Guruge

I somehow do NOT think so. No I am not paranoid, but as somebody who was in the computer industry for 40-years I am just realistic. 7-8 years ago it was the new ‘smart’ photo frames with USB connections. They were said to be riddled with viruses.

I have long maintained that our ‘antivirus’ programs — including Avast that I (alas) still use — are the worst of Trojan Horses, sitting in our computers keeping track of everything we do.

The issue with Huawei is their supposed ties to the Chinese government.

But, Huawei is NOT the only attractive, mainstream smartphone manufacturer in China. There is also, at a minimum, OnePlus.

I had spent a long time in early December 2017 looking at Huawei and OnePlus phones since they have very compelling camera offering.

In the end, however, I got a Google Pixel 2 because of the SOFTWARE — developed by Google. Google already spies on me so why not let them extend the means by which they do so. Seriously. I can’t stop Google spying on me, so I might as well just keep the number of folks spying on me to a minimum.
