    You're welcome. :) Have I been helpful??? :P
    I don't know, but it's irrelevant, after all it's the thought that counts!

    I wonder if today will be that big announcement from MS or is it the 8th? They have a bad habit of announcing something weeks/months in advance and think the excitement will stay the course of time.

    There's a big announcement? What could they possibly announce? Well, I guess mid-range phones.

    The thread seems empty today...

    I was referring to this: Wait for it...something major is coming to Windows Phone! | Windows Phone Central

    There's speculation that it's going to be the ability to use Android apps on WP. There was mention that it would be some time soon. Possibly July 8th.

    Android apps on WP? Because it worked so well for BB?

    I thought it was pretty well established that the guy spreading this nothingness is the most unreliable source ever and doesn't even like Windows Phone. At least that's what I gathered from the comments.

    It would seem that WPC thinks the information is correct but who knows anymore? I've given up trying to make sense of anything. Chances are my L920 won't be able to do whatever is coming so it won't matter to me anyway. :P

    WPC was wrong before. I remember this long discussion with one of the writers why I thought one article like that was bull****. He didn't see my reasoning this evening so I went to bed, in the next morning the article was taken offline including comments ;-)

    Well, somehow it doesn't fit into my brain that they should bring Android apps to Windows Phone after putting millions into making developers start programming for WP, it would also be against this entire "unifying" idea, but then again, Microsoft just released a better, cheaper Android device. So I don't exclude anything anymore.

    It's just speculation. I have no idea why MS would allow Android apps to run on WP. To me that would be like admitting defeat. But who knows?

    Was there one earth shattering presentation in tech ever? Something that was really new and revolutionary?

    I couldn't think of a single thing. It was always progress, always just a next step. Of course, some companies did sell it better than others ;-)

    yup HTC needs to step it up in the WP market..... I would like to simplify and just have to two devices. if HTC still have good audio and a good enough phone ill consider it because nokia phones don't have as a good audio quality as my ipod :/
    My biggest problem is handling movie content. Because I don't do the whole stealing movies crap, I just don't like how amazon has their stuff set up. Google is worse in the play store because you can only download cached versions of the movie. With Xbox you can download the file but since it is on protected format I cannot watch it on my Z Ultra. And since there is no Xbox video on Android that makes the whole thing less than useless. I'm sure that there is a workaround that I just haven't found yet, but it is annoying as hell.

    That's why I need to spend some time and really streamline my set up. Get my Z Ultra set up how I want and do the same for my 925 and my T100. I need to do a hard reset with that also.

    So the GF has caught World Cup fever and is a bit peeved because we are going to have dinner with my sister and her boyfriend during the Brasil v Colombia gale she wanted to see. She's cheering for Colombia because of one our mutual coworkers being Colombian...

    So this is the vase I made for the GF during our painting excursion at the arts and craft store last weekend. Those are her national colors and I tried to do this in the same layout as her national flag (Trinidad). So I guess whenever I buy her flowers she can use this instead of the other plain vase she has. Or she'll do something else with it.

    Yes she actually likes her cup too. Now the plan is when her nieces and nephew comes on vacation in two weeks, she's going to take them there.

    Every time I take low light pictures like the one I just took of that vase I posted, I'm reminded of how badass the high end Lumia cameras are. Yes they tend to be a bot so so in bright light and sometimes when you want to take a darker shot on purpose in low light it doesn't come out how you want it, but I'm still impressed with Nokia's Pureview tech.

    So it is supposed to be crappy weather today here in the NYC area thanks to Hurricane Arthur. Yet another reason why the GF is a little peeved we are going out to eat. I mean, it's Ethiopian food sp she does mind that part, but it is the potential of her getting wet (and the potential of my ears ringing over listening to her unload about it) that's a little perturbing...

    Maybe they'll have a TV there showing the game? Well, it might be not too much fun having a distracted person at the table...

    So the is what I mean where I wish the OIS on the 925 allowed you to see the image for what it was because the darkness was important. I shot this when getting dinner for the GF last night. As great as these pictures are, they should be a hell of a lot darker. Reason being was that it was supposed to be menacing clouds signifying the approach of a serious thunderstorm. Sp ot folks have even seen when the skies get really dark grey straying towards black will know how dark these images are supposed to look.

    Still, outside of maybe Chregu's beloved Apple product, not much would have gotten the shots right based on using a mobile camera. Still the OIS on this is impressive. Perhaps if I had simply used Proshot instead of the Noloa camera app, I'd have gotten the shot I want because sometimes Proshot can do the low light shots a bit darker than the Nokia camera app. But when you're not trying to get caught out in this, you cannot blame me for a quick snap...

    Doubt it. This chain of restaurants don't have TVs in them.

    First I wanted to mention that I replaced my Nikon PowerShoot with a Canon S120 because the Nikon always made pictures too bright with no possibility to adjust things manually. With the S120 I can set everything just right.

    Then I wanted to like your comment for the pictures. But your snappy comment about the phone I might buy made me think otherwise! I like the iPad, it's a great device, but I think you were referring to the iPhone 5S which is certainly not "my beloved Apple product", I wouldn't buy or want it.

    I wish MSFT opened up the camera button API to photograph app devs. I know it may be nitpicking because some OEMs will go away from the physical camera button, but if they did so for the older devices it would be cool to set something like Proshot as the default camera app. Anyways, that's just me wishful thinking here...
