    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.
    Yes, painfully aware of that tidbit :-) Now stop gloating and rubbing salt on our wounds.

    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 recently acquired a Nexus 4 and will be replacing the back cover next week once it arrives from China :-) Pics to follow.

    I think a better desire is for them to refarm their frequencies so we can use unlocked ATT devices on T-No.

    One is 4GB the other is 1GB both have 'branding' on them. The vendors give them to me. I don't need them. :/
    Thanks but I have to pass. I think I need a 8GB+ stick to back up Windows 8.1. If that isn't the case I'll let you know.

    Nobody really cared if I do it or not. But studying biology is stupid anyway, it really doesn't matter whether there's a PhD or not ;-)

    But luckily it's fun.

    And as you would say, that is why we have options :-) Time to fast using Nokia Mix Radio:-)
    Tried it, didn't like it. So I'm stuck waiting for 8.1.1. I've got the music i like on my 8X so there is no way I'm putting the 8.1 preview on it.

    I want to get a work visa and go to another country. I think getting out of the US would be good for me in both a learning and growing way.

    I'd really like to go to Japan but.. Any other great countries that don't make it impossible for foreigners to work in?
    I would have said Switzerland, but oh well...

    I don't think anybody from outside the EU and who isn't really interested in European politics will get this joke.

    I didn't. Shoot.
    It's complicated and boring to explain. There was a national referendum and the Swiss decided to end free movement of foreign people from EU countries. Which causes quite some problems now for everybody. The entire referendum was based on xenophobia and the incomprehensible fear of losing our wealth.

    There's the option of studying abroad unless you have some unique skill. In most countries (except Canada) you have the option to work during study, though it's limited. Also the option to work after study is available depending on the degree.

    That sounds like a mess. I've never felt the desire to go to Switzerland though. Japan, China, Korea are the countries I'd love to work/visit in.
    That's okay, in turn people from there come to visit Switzerland :D
