    I found the zombie thing I was talking about. It was fungus but I do believe there's a parasite as well.

    That's no fun. I hope nobody of you is an ant!

    Now I feel like watching Zombieland, and I could, I'm sick at home after all...

    Gah. You made me remember about the...thing Kotaku made me look at.

    A fungus that ate its way through a spider.

    This was the one on cats - Do Cats Control My Mind? - James Hamblin - The Atlantic

    I often wonder if I may have had this when younger or something. I was quite fearless then. Then again it may just be young stupidity. :P I'm still not scared of much though and I like cats. :P

    Leave it to me to like the most expensive cover you can buy for a Nexus 7.... it will have to wait until after the vacation though.

    It's probably more expensive than the device itself ;-)

    Only if you go overboard getting all the options. :P

    I was looking at one of the cheaper designs and not bothering getting the camera cutout as it's extra.

    I was thinking this one - http://shop.portenzo.com/custom-book-case-for-nexus-7/

    I like the fact I can choose the colouring I want. You'll notice they also make them for iPads...

    My iPad already has scratches and a dent, as I only use this smart cover thing for the screen, so it's too late for that ;-)

    Also, the 9 inch iPad is already pretty big, I wouldn't want to make it bigger.

    It doesn't make it much bigger if you look at the pics. I think one of my friends has one of these for their iPads they were quite happy with it.

    How did you end up with dents???

    Don't you remember? I was crying my heart out about this. I only take my iPad to the fitness center to watch shows on while cycling. I used to always carelessly put the iPad in my sports bag afterwards and stored it in my locker. It doesn't fit very well, so I sometimes forced it into it without thinking about my beloved iPad. I assume I did it like this.

    Since then I always carry the iPad separately.

    Well that sucks. :/

    Doesn't matter, it's not that bad. And it still works without any problems ;-)

    Well, I'm just loading a high-res movie onto my G3, and now I'll check out how much the battery drains and how hot my phone gets when watching a movie on it ;-)

    I woke up far too early and couldn't fall asleep anymore. I feel terribly tired. At least it's my last working day today.

    ...damn, I forgot some bacteria yesterday!

    I'm starting to become Chregu. I'm kind of leaning away from Microsoft products. They have been ******* me off lately. Especially, all of Microsoft's services that I use are on other platforms. Sometimes the other platforms are BETTER with MSFT's services than MSFT's platforms! Phase one will be selling my SP2 for the newly updated (as of today) MBP. Yosemite looks BEAUTIFUL, and isn't all over the place like W8. If there is no worthy flagship to replace my 920 after September, I'm leaving WP too. I won't leave my Xbox One though, but I also own a PS4.

    Bad Microsoft. BAD!

    Yesterday, coffee break. I was playing around with "Ok Google" (I don't have Google Now activated, I don't need this). Somebody of us mentioned Siri and I said something along the lines of: "You remember my phone before has a Microsoft OS? They are developing something like Siri, but much better!"

    Her response: "There are people using this? I only used Siri once, when you and I were playing around with it."

    I wonder, are there many people using Cortana on a daily basis productively?
    I use Cortana daily especially when driving to make calls and send text messages hands free.

    The Google cover is quite nice and pretty expensive in my book. I like it though on my N7.

    I see Chregu got the G3. I got a Moto X and a OnePlus One 64GB on order... but still using the 810. The USB port crapped out in India but just fixed it today.

    I'm thinking of cashing out my Bing points and getting a 635 to try out Lumia Cyan and WP8.1. Also would like LTE on my WP device, any thoughts...

    Not sure. I haven't been paying much attention to the latest Windows Phones. Nothing really interests me much. With regards to Bing points, well, those are non existent here... sounds like a plan though.

    You missed my mini take on the 635 because you were hard at work moving phones...

    The 635 is not bad. Phone zippy enough as a quad core. On screen buttons as OK. As a cheap device, feel in hand is pretty good. T-mo's LTE for their branded devices is pretty fast. Its not a bad get as a phone for the other people who don't want much from their device or those who want a good spare.

    Agreed. I would compare it to the Moto E and in that regard it is a slightly better device.
