    Hi friends,

    Weekly Updates are one of my favorite tasks at OnePlus. @dsmonteiro would agree on this. We can not only share what happened in the week but also a bit about ourselves.
    Anyone can take a guess as to what happens 28 days from now? I am as excited as you are since this will be my first time being part of the _________.

    Winters are my favorite season of the year > December is the best time of the year, I always try to stay away from the illusion of "New year, new me" and impulse purchase on an annual gym membership. Speaking about Winter, this February I was snowboarding in Chongli, where the majority of the skiing events will be hosted for Winter Olympics 2022. I will never forget this place because of a series of events that started from having loose screws snowboard to leg cramps. It was both my first time having to call the rescue hotline, and also on a snowmobile. Since it didn't happen this week, I will save my story for another time...

    Some fun happenings lately,
    • As part of our department's team-building Nic budget, we have stocked up on a bunch of classic board games, the sad thing is we have not found time to play.
    • @Amanda W. however is always on top of things when it comes to stocking up the snacks and wine bar that were also bought together with the games.

    • Look at what I have next to me. This phone smells amazing (car seats), delicious.

    • I am not sure if you guys have found a pattern in the food pictured. Daniel likes his food SPICEH.

    • Trying to finish this amazing book, 80 pages in

    Turning into the Community's events, let's get started with a *Shameless Plug* as always, join The Lab² - SwitchBot Starter Pack applications that will be closing in a week. This is an interesting set of products and I can already see some applications for it. I could easily feed and monitor my cats Maneki and Ninja remotely when I am away from town.

    I try to keep a poker face while encountering news rolling out from the rumor mill, In this case, we are looking at an alleged 10 Series leak, according to @Cheetosdust, what are your thoughts?

    According to @Zach X. Orbit V1.1.0 is available to install, Check out the Update Log and updated APK here. Among fixes and tweaks, this new update brings a few features that were highly requested. Check it out now!

    If you have a OnePlus 9 or OnePlus 9 Pro, be on the lookout for Open Beta 2, check out this thread as introduced by @Abdul B.. And if you have the Buds Pro, be sure to help @Leo Lei out on the OnePlus Buds Pro Experience Survey. Your feedback matters!

    For the Retro Gamers,
    And that concludes Weekly Update #414, looking forward to sharing WU with you next time!

    Hah! One plus User festival.
    BTW @Daniel D. @dsmonteiro
    Can we create a contest or just suggest what should be the name /Theme of the "Oneplus User festival" this year? I don't mind the same name, but there are many creative people in the forums, so maybe we could get a name that we'll be more proud of.
    Hope you are fine. Do share the story, you know where to post that.
    The cutest phone/ cover of all time.
    Have a great weekend friends.​

    User festival :cool:

    :eek: Well, glad you're still around to tell the tale, whenever that may be!

    I also see a lot of familiar names on the background :p I had to LOL @noquarter's depiction of "no quarter" :D

    Same here, bring it on :cool:

    I really enjoyed it too, though I'd started reading "Homo Deus" first.

    In a slightly related vein, I really enjoyed Rutger Bregman's Humankind too, I finished that in 4 sittings, where both of Yuval's books took me a bit longer.

    Thanks for the weekly update @Daniel D.

    The collection should also have "Life Game". It's the best board game for me :)

    India welcomes you ;)
