    that is so wrong. Cities should not force you to pay for parking.
    Absolutely agree! You've already paid taxes for infrastructure, which includes roads and parking-places. Paying for parking means double-taxing.

    Don't forget they add GST/VAT on top of the parking ticket .. that's triple taxation!!

    Was always a fantastic camera. Even the lower end Lumia devices seemed to take decent photos.

    I'm kind of in love with the Lumia camera.

    It makes me want to take pictures of everything. Through in some nice filters, some good shots - art.

    Same for me. Earlier It was curious for me to use camera on phone.

    But, with this camera I just want to make photos... even so I didn't like to do that earlier.

    I love the camera on the 950, just wish it was faster. I have fast moving toddlers, and between pushing the button and taking the picture the moment is gone. That is my only gripe with the 950 camera. The pictures that do turn out as you intend look amazing, bright or low light.

    Probably one of the trade offs for quality photos. I've been using the idol4s for the past week and it surprised me this week. I took shots from a moving car from behind the window that turned out pretty good, but I'm no photographer. Even though I tweaked the registry to enable features for it I found it snaps auto HDR photos real well. Must be the SD820.

    @raycpl, 'Beautiful sunset' at the 'beach', and everyone appears to be looking down at the smartphones...something wrong with that picture (pun intended:)

    at least the guy you featured looks to be on the right track, looks to be carrying a couple brewskys:)

    Not new news, but just saying:

    Combine this with recent insider rumours of a new "branch" of win10m, and a new device to go with this sibling OS, and this:

    Also featuring a detachable hinge design, and you've got yourself substantial reasons to suspect MS is actually working on its "not phone"

    It's a very popular spot (Tanjung Aru, Kota Kinabalu) for sunsets.. people tend to act touristy, and become part of the landscape.

    2 interesting ideas on why Microsoft keeps updating windows phone Microsoft's continuing commitment to Windows 10 Mobile means...
    A third possibility - they are keeping win10m alive, for a "second entry device catergory" rather than a replacement device. A surface pro, to their existing surface laptop. That their intention is to keep win10m alive, whilst designing a sibling device, with a sibling OS, that they hope will also boost sales and development for the existing win10m platform, along with the boost that windows s, and windows on arm tablets should offer the UWP platform.

    Simply - that despite everyone's assumption to the contrary, they actually aren't done yet.

    Look at a historical example - apple. Mac almost tanked. They had to change the chipset, and strip back expenses to keep to company afloat. They even got help from gates, to prevent bankruptcy. Then they came out with the ipod. And then the iPhone - but they never abandoned mac, and now their MacBook is a hot selling notebook, and mac sales are doing okay again.

    You don't nessasarily need the device that is failing, to succeed, in order to return it to profitability. You simply need the company brand, and the ecosystem to succeed, and then the device falls into place.

    If a new mobile device were successful, and windows on arm also boosts UWP, and is successful, by proxy win10m will be more successful - as the company branding, and the ecosystem would both be boosted.

    I don't think win10m is going anywhere. I think they intend to keep it on long term. Hence why they are developing cshell for it. Much like apple held on to mac, only for it to be revived by their successes in phones and mp3 players.
