    Sahib, you have to lay off the special sauce here. The US has no shot to qualify for the knockout stage in this World Cup. El Tri has a better chance. There's no way you can argue the opposite.

    It highlights the issues that WP has currently. The phones are rather dull and the OS isn't gaining much ground.

    I own an android tablet to supplement the lack of apps. I'm not a gamer but I like the selection that I have if I want game and the majority of apps I want are available.

    Since I don't plan to root my tablet or use custom ROMs I should be fine.

    Ah sports talk. About as interesting to me as washing dishes.

    I have a lot of opinions about sports but no point getting into it. I won't be around all day to argue. :P

    It's interesting the level of praise showered on the 5S. One of the reasons I went away from Apple is the appcentric focus. As a pure daily driver for my needs, WP does the trick. As much as I'd get a 5C just to keep an eye on what Apple is doing, I don't moss their stuff. My biggest complain with WP8 is I'm not sure if MSFT has made the platform better in terms of ease of use.

    The Q10 scored higher than the Lumia Icon?

    The last line reads: "There's no good reason to buy a BlackBerry anymore, not a single one."

    How is this possible lol

    The Verge has its nose so far up Apple's **** it can see the working conditions at Foxconn and turn a blind eye to the worker treatment by being in awe of the manufacturing process, that's why.

    Well at least they didn't give the 5S a 10/10. Goes to show that even the iPhone loses it's shine in time.

    WP is fine for most situations and I do use it for my daily needs. There was a time I cursed it and would still if I was running a business. It was horrible for that purpose in my eyes. For the average consumer, WP is fine for the most part. It lacks in that it's still missing those apps and games that people want most.

    75 Mbit or MB?

    I'm quite happy with the around 2.5 MB/s I get, I wouldn't need more.

    Sorry. Mb/s :P

    We watch some TV shows, movies and some other video content. Along with streaming audio. We only had 40GB of download but it would seem that we're using more than we thought so I felt it was time to go unlimited. The upgrade to faster was only 3/m more than the slower speed so I didn't see a reason not to. :)

    Data limit was always very unusual in Switzerland. There were some very, very cheap and slow connections that had it, but in general there's none.

    I agree, I think that's definitely worth it!

    Yeah, as long as the players get paid, don't mind the slave-like conditions under which the workers in Qatar have to build stadiums. Qatar that got the championship solely due to corruption and shady payments as even the temperatures are too high that good soccer could be played there anyway.

    Here, from my quick Google search: Qatar World Cup corruption, worker deaths a criminal combination - CBSSports.com
    :/ they lost the chance by the way ( I believe ) I think that's how it works. Like apple and Foxconn. Or any phone manufacture that make people in china work in bad working conditions . I'm not saying its good but I'm saying It as " it happens everywhere but what makes the World Cup more prone to criticism ?"

    Put the sauce down. Your analogy here is a kin to a team going undefeated during an NFL preseason as a major reason why they will be a playoff club. Doesn't work like that. You really cannot put any stock in any of the friendlies played prior to the World Cup.

    El Tri qualified for the world cup. Rather shakily, but they got in. Personally, they're in an easier group than the US. I can see them getting 4 points. Not sure if it will be enough to make the second round, but it's more than I can say the US will get.

    Microsoft thinking openly about Cortana on other mobile systems. They really make look Windows Phone like a little hobby on the side.

    I wouldn't support this OS either as a developer, when even Microsoft thinks they have to offer all the features to other systems to get back the development costs.
