    So the McLaren has been binned. Looks like my next phone is leaning more heavily to android.

    Apparently they don't seem to have any flagships in pipeline for the autumn. This is not good.
    It doesn't. If I can find a nice Android with a nano SIM that takes Qi, I may get a 1520. Otherwise, if the Nexus 6 goes of nano-SIM and still keeps Qi, I may get a 930 after all.

    WP is now the weekend OS. Sad state of affairs in the court of public opinion.

    Btw N_LaRUE, how much do you speak or understand Finnish?
    I used to know more but like all things if you don't use it regularly you loose it. I lived for a year in Finland and took language class. The language is phonetic and had the same alphabet as English, with a couple of additions but due to it's different grammar, though similar in a way to English, it was hard for me.

    Yes, it's said, that Finnish is a quite hard language to learn, but then again, which one is easy!😊

    And as I've said before, I've learned English for almost 50 years now and it's not perfect even now!

    Here's what I find funniest of the McLaren news. When Elop was being courted in the CEO sweepstakes, people yelled murder when he wanted to kill off Xbox of and Bing...people when up in arms. Betcha if Nadella takes some drastic measures to streamline the company people will get their pitchforks the same way...

    I'd rather they kill it, rather than release it half baked.

    There are native speakers who's English is worse than yours, so don't sweat it.

    What's interesting in Finland is that you run into people who speak English very well but usually the first thing they'll tell you is that they don't.

    We learned from some of my wife's relatives (mostly around my age or older) that teachers were quite strict with learning English and other languages. Whether this continues today in the same way I'm not sure. Because of this a lot of Finnish people are cautious about saying something wrong.

    Saying that however I noticed the last time we were there more English speakers were available. Even in the smaller towns.

    Truer words were never spoken. :) All languages are difficult from the perspective of the beginner.

    I think Microsoft will release a phone with 3d touch under a different codename. First it was Goldfinger, then McLaren, and now it will be something else this year,IMHO. At least the 3D touch R&D is still going on :/

    I've met people the opposite of that... Not Finnish, but they say they speak English very well but wait until they open their mouth! :| and the worst thing is you can't even correct them!

    My take has always been: English is a P.O.S. language that we have to use thanks to the country with the #1 contemporary economy (US) and the last country to control about 1/5 of the world's geographic landmass (UK).
