    Thanks, I'll pass.

    It's actually not that bad. However it contains a lot of salt. Well it did when I drank it.

    there isn't much about racist groups or uprisings in the news I do watch. though I should pay more attention so I don't become one of those clueless people in the US

    You won't see that aspect in the news silly but if you listen to the language of some of the politicians you'll hear it. New words same meaning.

    I prefer my vegetables being vegetables. I don't know much about vegetable drinks, have never seen something like this or drunk something like this, but I know about fruit juice and I strongly belief that they are terrible for your health.

    They consist mostly of sugar, why all the good stuff of the fruits is lost. Hell, they have more sugar than coke.

    True.

    Some people use V8 to make a bloody Mary cocktail.

    I have a juicer and it's a good quality one. The difference of course is that I know what's the juice. :)

    So yesterday I went to a large shopping mall in London. I don't personally like shopping malls but the weather was questionable. I was shopping for work shirts.

    Anyway, since I was in London I was expecting the usual. No sign of WP anywhere. I wasn't disappointed. In the mall was a huge Apple Store and in one of the open areas Samsung had a huge display going. I took a picture of half of it.

    So, is MS ever going to do anything outside the US? Considering the UK is one of their bigger markets you'd think they would start investing more advertising at least.

    In another weird twist. There was two 'mobile accessory' store kiosk type things. Neither had a case for my Nexus 7. Nothing but 'i' stuff with a couple of other cases for Android phones. I wasn't impressed but I guess they go with what sells.

    Honestly, when you come to the UK, you'll be startled by how many iPhone billboards are around.

    When you're in London and if you decide to go to the shopping area (Oxford St.) you'll see all the mobile accessory stores, depends how far you walk down Oxford St. and they sell mostly iPhone cases, with some Samsung ones here and there. It's insane really. But again, they go with what sells.

    Surprisingly the Apple store wasn't full as it usually is. So that was something.

    I don't see many iPhone commercials around here. I guess in Switzerland the iPhones sell themselves, it's really iPhone country here, even though there are more and more Android devices around. The only Windows Phones I ever see are either pretty old (like the 920) or very lowcost (like the 520).

    With accessories I think Apple has the advantage that they have a big marketshare with little variation in the devices. There are so many different Android devices that would need different cases...

    I have never been to an Apple store in Switzerland...

    There's a huge Apple store on Regent Street in London. I don't recommend going in there as it's typically full of tourists. :P

    If I get into an accident and only have my iPad there, yes. If I see the most amazing thing and only have my iPad there, unlikely but yes. If I have to take a picture of a document with my iPad, yes. For every other situation, no.
