    If you happen to be on the other side (which like MSFTisMIA, I am) it is very easy to spot subtle racism - how you end up getting a lousy table at a restaurant or why your food comes out cold and 40 minutes after you place the order, whereas the people seated at the adjacent table showed up 20 minutes after you were seated and are already enjoying the meal! Heck I saw that at a pizza joint last Saturday....there are plenty of other instances where your money is not as cool as someone else's....and I agree with N_LaRUE, we are after all the same inside, evolution has made us who we are on the outside, the sooner we learn that, the better we will all be off as a race...
    I'm a white guy and I've had that happen to me a few times as well. Sometimes just the way you dress can make people take a dislike to you but I do know it's different in the circumstances we've been discussing. I will never understand what people go through just because they were born with a skin colour different to mine.

    Part of the reason why I like travelling is to experience different places. Put myself in awkward positions. To be the outsider. To feel different. Though I know it's not the same.

    It is tempting. Not for me, but my Samsung moving friend back home could use it. If I was in a position to hold it, I'd deal for it.

    No same one, but the 64GB is only available in Black and the 16GB is in white. Right now they are only selling these via invite system as they figure out their ramp rate and their supply chain, not to mention their sales forecast issues...

    Odd. The one on the site looks like all screen but the image you show has that bit on the bottom. That's why I was asking. Is this possibly an earlier design?

    Guess who got the Cyan update today? It's my mum's Lumia 520. :)
    Guess who didn't? That's right, my Lumia 820 didn't :(

    I chose to have the on screen buttons versus the capacitive buttons and hence the difference.

    Sahib, you got music to listen to again:

    Band Played On - Joe Walsh

    Give you a hint, the boat references are a metaphor akin to the state of humanity...kinda in the same vein of the conversation Rue and I have been having these last few posts.

    I'm giving you a hint because if you only come back talking about a boat, I'll unfriend you for a week.

    hmmm well I didn't really understand the song until I heard the part "Yeah everybody's got their heads up their asses" it made me think of ostriches. they hide their heads in the sad thinking it will go away. same thing with the world. people stand around thinking it will get better or these bad things never happened. so they go on in their daily lives

    Hmmm...let me think about this and get back to you on this one. If I swing it, I'd buy a 930 and go back to that as my daily.

    Well, I'm glad something helped to make the song click. The words are online, so if you've seen them, it is worth having while you listen to the song.

    Cool. I've now been using it for the last hour and this thing is pretty amazing. Awesome sound on the headphones, has a really nifty Audio FX app built in and the speakers ain't shabby either. The call quality is pretty amazing as well. Camera is good, I just need to get used to taking pics with it.
