    And you thought the 8X had issues :-)
    The 8X had issues that were fixable with a tape put onto the SIM card. And you had to get it exactly right, else you were plagued with SIM errors and restarts forever.

    I hope I'll figure out a similar fix for the LG ;-)

    This developer preview is about to turn into a cluster ****. Why would I want to update to 8.1 DP update 1 if I don't have Cyan yet??? Unless they tailor DP Update 1 to individual phones and bundle the firmware update too???
    Agree with your sentiment but since I'm on Lumia 810 which TMO abandoned, I'll take any update gladly :-)

    Can't see the video.

    So I'm torn between two things now.

    The Google cover from my Nexus is 35 - https://play.google.com/store/device...black&hl=en_GB

    And the other one I like is 45. Custom Book Case for Nexus 7

    I like the idea of being able to customise the colours and I know the Portenzo is a good product. However, is it worth the extra 10 plus shipping?
    I see your dilemma there. I paid way too less for mine.

    Are the 35 pounds inclusive shipping? I have to check the exchange rate, traveling to Great Britain tomorrow without having an idea how it is.
    It didn't say but since they probably have UK stock it would be cheaper than the product coming from the US.

    What did you pay for yours? Did you manage to sell your Nexus 7?

    That's true. I generally don't like ordering things from abroad... actually I don't even know why. I did recently order something from the USA and it worked without any issues. Of course it was nothing I'd need warranty on...

    Let's say much less than list price. I bought a whole bunch of accessories from someone so difficult to parse out an individual price. I still have the Nexus 7.

    OK so lets see some pics and how much with shipping? I'm happy enough to take it off your hands if you're not using it. I just want to stop using the rubbery thing from Asus.

    Will send the pics tonight. I'll have to research shipping costs. Two weeks ago it would have been free during the layover in Heathrow:-) When did you get the N7?

    Thanks. :) If it's in good shape I'll take it off you. I really want another case.

    You didn't mention you were coming through London and you didn't know I had a N7. :P

    It was on sale here a couple of months back so I grabbed it. Spur of the moment purchase. I'm quite happy with it. :) I'm really liking having an Android device. It even connects to my work's WiFi... unlike my phone.

    It is still in the original packaging. I don't know if the previous owner used it or not. I haven't gotten around to opening it yet...

    No need, I really love this phone.

    It's fast (sometimes it loads for a moment, sometimes there is a slight lag, it's still faster than the transition animations on Windows Phones, also, due to it running demanding games fluidly it's probably just the not yet perfectly optimized LG launcher, and I only care because other people complain), it opens most apps instantly, regardless whether they are running in background or not, it offers great functionality, it offers great apps, it is beautiful, the LG skin is beautiful, battery life is awesome, the screen is gorgeous, even more on these small bezels, the camera is great even though I hope for an update regarding the low light pictures, the "Quick Window Circle flip" is a very useful cover that looks great which replaces the backplate and hence doesn't make the phone much bigger, with great functionality on the open circle, I'm just amazed by this phone!

    ...well, sometimes it randomly shuts itself off , but apart from that I mean.

    Sad news folks. Somebody committed suicide by jumping from one of the Hugh rises nearby where I worked. I was about 5 minutes away from seeing the actual plunge. One of my coworkers did so was just trying to give her some words of encouragement.

    I'm very sorry to hear that, I hope she can cope as well as one can under these circumstances.

    I thought you did well but some people can be very touchy. I guess we'll see. :P
    The worst that can happen is the mods close the thread. And I get a fine in kangaroo court. What Chregu posted was OK in my book.

    She'll be OK. We talked, she called her mom and talked to her mom. Her grandpa turned 100 today so I reminded her to go celebrate that and not to take in too much from what she saw. These things happen sadly.

    In a similar but different story I saw someone dive (was going to say jump but it was more like they taking a dip into a swimming pool) in front a train when I was 19. The person was a mere 1m away from me. They didn't look well when I shot a glance at them, they looked spooked, but being Toronto you see weird people all time, kind of like NY. Would guess they might have been on some sort of drug. They tend to jump at the point where the train enters the station because the train is still moving quick. 2 1/2 cars ran over them. Was the oddest thing I ever saw and the reactions of people varied wildly. I think I was in shock for a bit.

    I still get chills occasionally when I stand on a train platform. Doesn't matter what type of train platform either.

    That's understandable (I remember see you mention this story in the thread). Perhaps that look you saw was that look of being in-between...in between being caught as to what they were about to do and the look of being in clear and firm choice of what they were about to do).

    Rough, rough stuff indeed.

    I was trying to remember if I mentioned this before or not. Been on here too long and I'm starting to repeat stories. :P

    It's hard to know what the expression on their face was. I only remember the eyes being a bit wild, hair all out of place like they just woke up, they were wearing white and they looked, for lack of a better word, haunted. Of course this is 20+ years ago so I can have some details mixed but I'm sure about the white and the hair. I seem to recall that their skin seemed like it hadn't seen sun on it in months, real pasty looking. I would compare them to a zombie but that might be a poor comparison.

    I'm sure it was a guy but I can't guarantee it. Certain things are a bit blurred.
