    Broken screens on cellphone are ugly. They would of thought after dropping a phone they would learned to put a case on it.
    I dropped my Lumia 800 and the screen was shattered. I still would never use a case. Maybe on a iPhone 5, as they are so small anyway and get ugly pretty fast.

    You do realise that over here in the UK that most people start out with 4 weeks vacation right? That's no including any public (what we call Bank) holidays.

    Damn, now I'm tired. I was hoping to put off my second coffee until a bit later but looks like I'll need it sooner. :/

    I have a couple of free USB sticks if anyone is interested. :P

    Haha. Rub it in nice and deep. I get no holidays except Christmas and thanksgiving. No holiday pay. No overtime (I'm salary)....
    That's one of the reasons why I'll never go to the US for a postdoc. It might be necessary or at least very, very helpful for a scientific career, but I don't think that's worth it...

    There's some good science still being done in the US but I think most of it's starting to shift out. You're better off coming here. :)

    That's something I'd like :)

    My phone does strange things with favorite pictures. There are some set without me setting them, and they can't be removed, it just ignores it if I try.

    Working in a cellphone place, this is something I see way too often. They even have the gall to make me cut up my fingers to troubleshoot what is wrong. "My phone won't make calls!" Lady... With a screen that effed up, I'm surprised it's even still ON!

    Screen protectors are great friends in situations like that. I traded an iPod touch once for a G. Nexus - the guy at the time just bought a N4 and wanted an iPod. That thing had three of the biggest cracks ever, so bad that if you jostled it too hard, it would shatter. I threw a screen protector on, and it lasted another 6 months worth of use (used it at home as a tablet).

    Moral of the story, don't be a cheapass when you buy an expensive smartphone not to put a screen protector on it when cracks start to surface.

    I just got an email from a colleague about the crystallization screen. But I'm in holidays. But I'm also sick. So I guess I could answer it...

    We need better teachers and an improved public education system to nurture the smart people that are ALREADY here.

    I have no data again. Second time in two weeks. :/
    Time to switch to GiffGaff:-)

    You're in the UK. Until recently your carriers could triple the prices and you could have done nothing about it, not even step back from the contract. Of course they are terrible.
    It was the same in USA until T-Mo started shaking things up :-)

    Morning folks. So I put the 8.1 update on my 920. It looks ok. I've got mixed feelings. Sometimes I wonder what MSFT is doing. Makes me feel like they do a good job of laying groundwork but that's it.

    What attracted me to WP was among other things, how fan the music player and multimedia was. The music app seems to be getting worse with each incarnation. I know we have to take lumps sometimes for progress, but it seems MSFT does a good job of handing out those lumps...
    And as you would say, that is why we have options :-) Time to fast using Nokia Mix Radio:-)
