    Wandering slightly back onto the topic of windows phones - so please don't hate me.

    Just read a thread on someone's letter to Microsoft and honestly I just don't get the **** hurt of the OP - Some people go on like they are the majority and they should be listened to when the reality is they are in a small minority and their voice is only a whisper.

    Personally im perfectly happy with WP8 and my phone in general - I probably wouldn't get system updates on any of the other phone OS every 4-6 months and would have to wait a full year for the next update - I don't get the problem with orientation lock - just never been an issue for me - my phone works and serves its purpose for me without any issues and im sure im not alone - I never look at my phone and think "I wish I had this feature" Person A has got it on his phone person B has got it on his why cant I have it on mine. There isn't an app that's out any other OS that I want or need.

    Im happy. People thinking that MS are lazy for not providing features that other phones have is just plain wrong in my opinion - if you want those features go to that OS and be happy - I don't want my OS to be the same as everyone else that's why I went with WP in the first place. Facebook is a prime example - I loved the previous version - cant stand the fact that I can now sit down next to someone with an iphone both open up facebook and the apps be identical.

    I guess some people will just never be happy with what they have.

    Yeah I agree with this. The only thing I wish is that my 920 played well with other people's Sony/S4's for NFC. It makes my phone look bad!

    There's lots of that on the forums at the moment. There's also an article by Daniel Microsoft focusing on increasing Windows Phone volume with GDR2; features coming later | Windows Phone Central about update issues.

    This is my opinion in general. They want people to take up WP for it just being WP, however that won't work. People expect some sort of familiarity with other mobile OS so that they can get up to speed quickly. Different is fine to an extent but all you have to do is see people's reaction to Windows 8 over the Start button and you have a picture of some of the mindset behind it all.

    Because I came from Symbian and the reason I took up WP was simple because of Nokia, I didn't know anything about WP and didn't investigate it too well so I was slightly disappointed by the overall OS when I first got it. I do find it a touch disjointed with some things, email being one of them. On the whole I like WP and want it to succeed but if it is going to succeed it needs to be similar in features to other OS. It can still maintain it's uniqueness while bringing in much needed features.

    The reality is if they want to attract users they need to have similar features to what's available on other OS otherwise WP will simply be a niche market.

    Quite the opposite, I'm very happy for you that you are so satisfied with WP8.

    Personally I'm just sick of waiting, I still have the same features as on Windows Phone 7 with nothing relevant added. Sure, they copied the interface to the NT kernel for WP8 what provided better apps, but the OS itself has still the same terrible calender and no VPN support for example. And yes, in a year or so when I buy a new phone and the situation hasn't changed much, I will think about trying a different OS.

    But there are so many threads about that. Let's talk about cake!

    The thing is I never used to either - Subsidised caf so had a full English almost every day washed down with a red bull - after a few months of that my weight was up to 14 stone. Its taken me 3 months of eating healthily and 3 sessions down the gym every week (cardio, weights, mma) to get myself back down to my ideal weight of 12st 7. Feel so much better for it though feel healthier and fitter at 35 than I did at 25.

    My weight was once over 100 kg. I've lost over 25 kg, but all the ice cream and cakes make life dangerously. ;-)

    Still, as long as I can run over an hour 3 times a week I think I'm fine...

    I need to start dropping some weight myself. I doubt I'll ever be as thin (not that I want to be) in my 20s but I'd like to be healthier.

    Hey Chregu did you listen to any of the music recommendations I made yet?

    I've started with Inner Circle. I usually don't concentrate very much on the lyrics (I think mostly because most of the music I listened to was English before I understood a single world) but in one song he screams "**** your god!" and my first thought was, "I don't really have a god... it's the same with a girlfriend. Is he just teasing me about my momentarily single life?!"

    But I like the music ;-)

    That would be the song Judith. It's about his mother who suffered a stroke and spent the rest of her life in a wheelchair but still believed in her religious convictions.

    The group's name is A Perfect Circle... :)

    I'm in the same position re: god

    No need to apolgise! :)

    Songs I like from A Perfect Circle are: The Outsider, The Package, Judith, The Hollow and 3 Libras

    Of course I can listen all the albums.

    When you get to Tool I suggest listening to the album AEnema first.

    They introduced a Mini McFlurry in Switzerland. How can you truncate the perfect product? If they want to change it, they should add a Maxi McFlurry!!!
