    I'll think about it.
    OK. Take your time, as I'm also not rushing to sell it. I'm going to convert it to a GPE model so that it has stock Android and get updates quicker from Google than leaving it on AT&T's software.

    If all else fails, I can send it to 99 who will use it for 3 hours and then sell it on Swappa...lol...

    I've never driven one so I can't say much. I haven't heard anything bad about them.

    I've found the best way to know if it's the right car for you is to see if you can rent one for a weekend and test it out for yourself before purchase. That east you can hopefully test both the enjoyment and the possible annoyances.

    Ignorance, there is a cure.
    Will do this. Thanks for the tip.

    Morning folks. Thanks for the feedback about the Mini Cooper.

    As I mentioned earlier, I'm a late bloomer in the driving business because I've been commuting all my life and never had the need to use a car. I think thought that if I change jobs and stay in NJ, I'll need one for sure. Where I live isn't bad and if you have a car your quality of life actually improves because all the really nice stuff is with in a 30 min - 1 hour driving distance.

    To start off I don't want anything fancy. I've always like the minis and I drive in a ford focus or fusion a while back and was impressed by that too. I like the Dodge Chargers too. My dream car whenever I get important is a Jaguar S Type or a Mercedes AMG Electric Drive. The electric drive really impresses me based on what I've been reading about it so far. And I like the higher performance and yet it is environmentally friendly.

    When I get a house I want to add an electric charging station and some solar panels too. Pretty much I'd like to own an electric car to drive around locally in the week and a fancy gas guzzler to look cute on weekends.

    So I'm headed to the post office now. Gonna go early so I don't have to curse out the mail folk. They do get a raw deal here in the US - one of my cousins works in a post office in Florida and she is itching to retire. Still, my post office is bad though.

    So MS might have been sticking their noses in UK politics... along with other IT companies it would seem. If this is true (we'll never know without confirmation of some sort) it would appear MS is not far off their 'old' ways.

    My father retired after 40 years with the Post Office about 10 years ago. I've heard the horror stories. Nowadays, it's not as bad though, with the digital age, email and all... They're shutting down Post Offices left and right. These days, they're struggling just to compete with commercial parcel shipping companies (Fedex, UPS, etc..)

    I suppose. Some of that is mismanagement, like many other things. It is a shame though with how this country treats the grunt work basic services like the postal service. I wish that the country wouldn't focus so much on money grabbing and reinvest some of those dollars into some needed services.

    Granted, competition is good for the USPS, but they have a monopoly on certain things still.

    Amongst all the doom and gloom a new post office opened up close to my house and I promptly helped them out by shipping out my Lumia 635 to a fellow WC member.
