    I'll probably go to the phone store today and have a look at the devices.

    I don't get people that try to show their uniqueness by buying a Windows Phone device. It's supposed to make them different in some way I guess, but I don't understand how.

    I don't quite get it myself either. If all you want to do is get stuff done what does it matter how 'unique' or 'different' it is? I just want something that works.like the vast majority of users. If I have to struggle with it, uniqueness loses it's appeal very quickly.

    My "damn I have ****ed up!" experiment turned into "amazing, finally I have the results I need!" experience. I have to finish this, maybe there won't be enough time for looking at phones left, let's see ;-)

    I bought a Windows phone because I like that it has a creativity element, something which nobody has done before-flat UI, live tiles instead of static icons, in fact, completely different from any OS I've seen before. I would award full marks to MS for creativity. Only a truly brainy person could have come up with such a concept. Now Apple and Google ate also trying to copy MS by removing reflections, and making the UI flatter. Even the IOS 7 task manager and calling screen looks very much like the WP version. I also like the concept of hubs, which is again something very different and not tried before by anyone else. Windows Phone is something original and creative, not something that is a refined Symbian look alike made for touch screens(IOS 7 and Android).

    Um, MS stole the Hub concept from iOS... Including the restrictive nature. MS was pretty much trying to capture the iOS crowd. It was trying to directly compete with Apple, not Android. Failing that they have since realised that low-end hardware and emerging markets are the only people interested in their stuff mostly due to Nokia. They came close to losing that market until they fixed their SD card mess up and also instigated the explorer option, which people are still unhappy with.

    Anyway, the whole 'uniqueness' is slowly being drained away from WP and we'll soon have a flat tile interface with no live tiles because everyone couldn't understand the live tile thing and wanted a notification centre instead.

    There is an ignore list in the settings on the forum. Not sure if that's just for contacting you or not.

    I thought he was planning on ignoring you. Apparently not. :P

    Best to let it slide. No point getting worked up over nothing. :)

    The ignore list works. You just add the person who's posts you don't want to see and you won't see them.

    I just don't feel like reading these brain farts anymore. Hiding it would be the easiest solution. Well, you can't have everything, I guess my brain will have to do the job.

    Great then!

    I'm sure you can manage to find this information yourself. That's what the internet is for.

    Could you ask her for me? I can't have her on my European 8X. Maybe it would solve all my problems ;-)
    I asked her but Taptalk didn't allow me to respond.

    What I meant is that they used similar concepts. Of course iOS wouldn't use the term hub.

    Look through here https://www.apple.com/ios/ios7-basics/

    There's nothing wrong with what you said. But most people would just say - I'm off to my dinner invite. The phones can wait till tomorrow.
