    Yeah, the hot dog was from an area you shouldn't buy a hot dog. Right under the Eye. But I was starving...

    I've also had very good food in London. For example I remember last year, when I went there for a concert (from Manchester, not Switzerland) and we had lunch in a very nice little place. Couldn't recall the name though.
    .
    If you're in that area again and in need of food there's the food market on the other side (non river side) of Royal Festival Hall. The food is cheap and good. There's also a tonne of restaurants around there. If you're into Sushi I recommend Ping Pong, which is also on the other side of Royal Festival Hall.

    Royal Festival Hall - Dance or Nightclub in London - HERE

    It's a great area around there for food, though apparently hot dogs not so much. :P

    Don't hotdogs in the UK have horse meat in them?
    I don't mind horse meat. This is eaten regularly in Switzerland and nobody knows what the big deal about this supposed to be scandal was.

    It may only be a problem if it's not declared, but I never thought about asking what meat is in a hot dog sausage.

    It's not supposed to but then depends on the hot dog really. Most hot dogs are the 'left over' bits normally.

    Yeah, when I was in Italy, years back, I was offered shredded horse meat as an appetizer and tried it. Wasn't bad at all. I think people in the US get caught up on horses being more of a pet then livestock.

    The problem isn't the fact it was horse meat per say, as long as its on the label of the product you're buying (issue one), the main issue (number two) was that it wasn't traceable to source. That's a big deal in the meat industry.

    It's the same in the UK. Horses have a 'special' place in society. Same in Canada and Australia.

    Yeah, I think I've covered the first point, the second point is also true. I'm not sure if this wasn't as much of an issue here or we Swiss just love our horse meat too much...

    I understand people not eating special kinds of meat for cultural or other reasons. But there's one animal all nations and religions and cultures can agree on: Let's eat chicken!

    And now I'd like to wish everybody a good night :)

    Yeah, I knew that could rise issues after I've read the sentence again, but it's the word my brain uses in normal thinking, so I just left it there. It's hard to build a verb out of "search engine".

    "I search engined it!"

    I don't use Bing at all. Go to bing.ch, if it doesn't send you to your local domain you'll see it's even still in beta here.

    Edit: God, there's not even a link to "maps", at least I can't find it.

    So I'm a Sprint customer. I currently have a Blackberry 9650 that I've been using for years. I've been waiting for BB10 for almost as long. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon have had these devices for months now. But Sprint.... coming late summer. Given the fact that I have not had the opportunity to switch to the new OS and that BB could just as easily flourish as well as fail, I had to consider other devices. I'm not a fan of iOS or Android (is that OK to say here?). Long ago I've used Compaq iPaqs with Windows Mobile and I really liked it. I've never had a Windows phone, but would consider it if BB doesn't work out for me....

    ... But, being a Sprint customer, I know that BB isn't the only brand that doesn't get Sprint love. I would have tried an HTC Arrive (being the only Windows phone that Sprint gave a chance to, but I read too many things about quality issues.

    I really like the Nokias, but again, Sprint says "No Nokia for you!"...

    ...The HTC 8XT just came out on Sprint a week or so ago. It seems like a nice phone, but it's definitely a mid-tiered phone. Build quality looks nice, but it just doesn't wow me! I'm looking forward to getting my hands on a Samsung Ativ Neo in a few weeks to give it a go. I have high hopes for that device. If I convert, that will probably be the way I'll go.

    And, BTW, since this is a 'challenge' thread, I decided to split this into 3 posts because 3 posts are better than 1! Also, you need more smileys!
