    A quick update on the 521X2 or 1024 project.
    Phone 1 arrived as described, completely DOA.
    Phone 2 arrived kinda as described. Reset it using Nokia Software for Retail and went back to the same screen. Time to bring out the tools, I said. Well turns out someone had hacked off the volume up button on Phone 2 so I am up s**t creek and no way to repair this sucker. Oh well. So now I have a Lumia 0000 instead of a working Lumia 521 or Lumia 1024 :-(

    Here is a photo pre-surgery and looks pretty much same post-aborted-surgery:-)

    You know you live in the hood when...

    A woman allows her sister with a full shopping cart to cut the line and then turns around to curse out the woman in front of her whose sister went back into the aisle to get one item, leading to a huge argument.

    SMH. I need to not shop here during rush hour.

    Sahib, this is for you...34th st, right across from Macy's two days before the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. They set the performance stage up in front of the T-Mobile store across the street.

    I like the OPO's camera.

    I hope the Z4 and Z4 ultra will have Gorilla Glass 4 and the Snapdragon 810 processor. Wishful thinking, though.

    and i thought i was the weird one ;) getting all happy about battery life ;P.... i tease i tease thats pretty good to only lose 30 after the work day
    I think I've explained things well before but in case you missed it. With my L920 I'd usually panic going anywhere there wasn't an ability to charge the thing because it would mean not having any ability to take pics if the phone died. The L920 didn't take much for it to croak either. So it was not nice.

    Knowing I have a phone that can last through the day with heavy use let alone my usual mild use is somewhat of a relief.

    I was wondering about something like that. I wasn't thinking nano batteries at the time though. Great to see some innovation in that department.

    In the UK they love to cue. They also get angry if someone cuts in but usually don't say anything. The Brits are very polite. :P

    OPO uses a Sony sensor in its camera. Like most OEMs do.
