    Well, that's typical celebrity nonsense there. I could really care less who sleeps with who personally. :P Women should be able to do whatever they want.

    I never understood the Lindsay, Paris and Kardasian thing.
    I know. We should be all free to **** whomever we want and it be almost nobody else's business. But if that's what you use to get acclaim, we shouldn't have be to forced to care, just remember you're not going to have pretty looks forever - if that's how you make your cash. The younger girl will always have the advantage...

    I have never iPadded a celebrity in my life. And it is nothing I plan on doing. I would be too afraid of catching an STD...
    You can catch an STD the same way from a non celeb as you could from a star if you're careless. Yes, some stuff people may never feel comfortable in sharing, but it doesn't mean you cannot have fun if a celeb isn't putting the moves on you.

    Personally, if the starlet is into me, I may not say no. But id have to see the real person and not the image first before I decide if I want to roll in the hay or not. Makes a great story though.

    They have suggested to return to W8 prior to updating to avoid any issues.
    I have my 8X for that. Remember, what I have on my Malay 925 isn't the preview, but the live 8.1 with Cyan.

    It's sad that so many jobs will be lost. I still think Nokia should have gone Android ( at least also Android) in the first place. They would have been able to keep many jobs. The people who were behind Symbian could be developing Android skin and special features. The sells would have been better, that's no brainier. There was debate on Slovenian Android forum where many people said they would buy Nokia Lumia 920 lookalike with Android on it.

    Actually, no. No offense but if I had a $1000 for everyone who said "Nokia should have gone with Android", I'd have enough money to buy Nokia myself. Nokia was is dire straits. MSFT offered the most cash to bail them out. No one else was going to help them out like that. Look at how crowded Android is. Only Samsung makes serious money. LG, Sony, HTC have very good offerings and they're barely gonna turn a profit. So all of a sudden Nokia would instantly stop bleeding cash and money would be raining in like Samsung or Apple if they have just ported over Android? Seriously?

    Very true. Thing is, I never found any of them all that attractive either. I rather talent over looks anyway. One of the things I like about the UK is that they have 'normal' people on TV. On the news, on the TV shows. You don't need to be a model to be on the news or TV. I really like that.

    I loved the Lumia 800 design. But for me, the 920 always felt too big and too clumsy. And the bezels were just ugly.
    Well, outside of the iPhone 6 and LG G3, you like smaller phones so no surprises there.

    The iPhone 6 is exactly in the range I like phones, 4.7 inches ;-)

    I also like the HTC One M7. :P

    I've seen some celebs in person, with less make up and they look really good...good enough to ****. They're a ton a better looking normal people out there too. The big issue is that we train our youth to be so beauty obsessed across contemporary cultural lines these days that all many people want is fakeness. Look at the British girl with spend all that money just to look like Kim K. That's just not cool right there.

    I'm in agreement there...4'7" is a great spot. It is why eventually I enjoyed the Nexus 4. But I could male the leap to the 5" 930 and the Z2. Perhaps what I may end up doing is just waiting to see what the Sony z3 looks like. If it is badass enough I may go with a Z3 +930 combo, assuming that Sony goes nano SIM next go round.

    The problem is Nokia had a good market in the emerging markets and that was due to their low end phones and Symbian being a pretty open system. Nokia cannot survive on emerging markets alone though. No one really cared much about Nokia anymore. A couple of places here and there in the EU.

    Without a large market and relying on low end phones only, Nokia wouldn't be able to survive unless it made major cuts itself.

    I just finish watching a series on BBC called the 'Men who made us spend'. It's based on another documentary called the 'Light bulb conspiracy' which talks about how products are engineered with obsolescence. Both are good and are real eye openers. The BBC one is three episodes. All four explain our messed up society pretty well... from an economic point of view.

    Exactly. HTC experienced the reverse when the bailed on the low and market to share Apple like profits. They produced some good high mid ranged devices they sold at high end prices and bombed out.

    The trick is that what may be needed is the switch to competent software to accent very solid hardware at each price point. It isn't about hardware anymore - that's what Apple has shown.

    All these big tech companies are trying to pull an Apple with their products. Even MS instead of looking at different markets or different ideas. They all want what Apple has.

    It has always been about making super profits. The only way to do that is to grab from others and exploiting the labor of people and not matching pay to their efforts.

    Yeah, they all want customers that are willing to pay more than what an item is actually worth, and be happy to do so.

    Yes, it is all about profits but the psychology behind it is quite amazing. If you can see those three episodes from the BBC I highly recommend it. It provides a really interesting insight into what we as a society have become to accept so that they can sell. It is a bit shocking to say the least. The first two I found the most interesting, one was about obsolescence in products and the other on fear in advertising. The third talked about how children are being groomed for consumerism followed by how they progressed to make adults more 'child like' in their spending. All very interesting.

    Totally off topic, then again, this hole thread is all about off-topic...

    Can anyone recommend a TTF editor that is either open source/free or not too expensive? I need to edit 1 or 2 characters in a TTF font.

    IDK, I guess I've become paranoid in my old age (39) about hap hazzardly downloading a program from an u know site/source.
