    What model are you reviewing, Gisele Bndchen?

    Bndchen is a German name, I can only imagine how English speaking people would pronounce this :D

    Know of any good (re: quality) Chinese restaurants in London? I haven't found one yet.
    There are some gems in Chinatown. Ive been in most of them and a lot just push out the food to the tourists but there are a couple that are really good - best way to grade them is to see how many Chinese people are sitting down eating before you sit down yourself.

    I've been to one Chinese restaurant in China town. It was ok but nothing special.

    The problem with going with the Chinese sitting at tables is that they are given a different menu compared to the 'other' people. The 'Westernized' version of Chinese food is not that great, it's generally horrible in North America unless you find a good restaurant.

    This is only partially true, my favorite dim sum place has a almost 1:1 ratio of Asian/Non-Asians and it's the best in the city.

    Damn, it's almost 1 pm and I still could eat Zopf! ...and probably will soon, there are many leftovers.

    Go to bed, have some good sleep, it's important to stay healthy!

    Once I had a phase in which I could barely sleep at all. I'm not particularly nervous before exams, but one night I couldn't get any sleep at all. The day after I had a very important, very difficult exam. Doing this exam without any sleep wasn't fun.
    So I decided, before another exam, at 3 am to take a sleeping pill so I could catch at least some sleep. It should have kicked in after 45 minutes, however after 45 minutes all I felt was the urge to go to the toilet. Finally I was able to catch an hour of sleep and had to write the exam under the peak influence of the pill.

    The exam went very well for some freaky reason, but that day I've decided to never take sleeping pills again. I rather don't sleep at all. Luckily this phase passed by after a few months. (I still have some weeks I sleep very badly, but it's never as bad as back then.)

    Of course, if you have a medical condition and get sleeping pills prescribed you should most likely listen to your doctor.

    I love the cans so far! I also own the in ear version of the purity headphones (cyan as well). Funny enough, they went bad and I'm to ship them back to Nokia for repairs. Once I saw the deal in WPCentral I had to snap the cans up too. The in ears were pretty good for me: I'm not an audiophile, but I liked how balanced the sound is. I think the in ears were a bit louder than the cans overall, the noise cancellation was good enough for my NYC commute. What I really liked too were some Sony tips I had from my ex that I put on the purity in ears that allowed me to drop the volume but still get the in ears loud and with a great seal. All in all, I like the purity headset. If I had the cash I would have gotten the HD wireless ones, but they're still too expensive for me. I do plan to ship back the in ear to Nokia for replacements though.
    Thanks for the details. I'm thinking of picking up the in ear ones to try. Hopefully they don't die on me. Mainly going to use them on my commute as well, so it's good to know the noise isolation is decent. The headset seems cool. I might see if there is a store near me where I can try them. The cyan one you got looks fab. Definitely going to stand out from the crowd

    Personal headphone recommendation here - Wesc Chambers by RZA premium headphones - Don't be put off by the celeb endorsement these headphones are amazing - The noise cancellation is great even just putting them over your ears with the NC on and no music playing you hear virtually no outside noise - Range in sound is great too - not too bassey which surprised me coming with an endorsement from the RZA. They also have a great feature of muting and turning off noise cancellation by pushing on the outside of one of the cans. So if you do want to hear anything in the outside world all you have to do is push on your ear rather than fiddle with volume or stop the music and take off the headphones.

    The cyan and yellow shades used by Nokia pop, especially the cyan. It's ironic how colorful yet subtle these headphones are. I did have a teen see the monster brand and give me the "are those monster headphones?" look. My ex loves the look of my cyan headphones. What I liked most about the purity is that I get just enough seal to hear my music, but I still hear enough outside noise. That's important for me since I do a lot of transfers and don't want to get hit by anything during my commute. Plus you get volume control and built in mic. I wish more companies made WP headsets with volume and mic, but I guess that's like the app debate...

    I wouldn't buy any of the purity headsets at full price, honestly, as nice as they sound. Sound wise, you can get better options at their price point, but the mic and volume control ability evens things out. So if you can get a deal online through amazon, I'd do that.

    Yeah, I was thinking the in ear ones aren't too bad for the price since it had mic and the in line controls as well. Won't be using them too much, so the price point was attractive enough to me. Also wish more companies supported WP with accesories like headsets.

    I was looking at the Klipsh S4 (I think). But I'm not sure if the one with mic will support WP.

    No prob. 😊. I still think you may like them. 👍

    I fell in love with the Lumia 1020 yesterday when messing with it in the AT&T store. It is pretty light weight wise. Not 8X level light, but a little lighter than the 810/820. I still like the 920, but I would love a 1020 to use on weekends. Makes you want to go take pictures for no reason...😊

    I was picking between the S4 and the Purity. The Purity won out because of the versatility with the volume and mic, for me. I think sound wise, the S4 is better and I'm not sure that mic is WP supported.

    Exactly the two I'm also looking at. The S4 has good feedback regarding the sound quality. But like you, I'm unsure if the mic is supported. Might play it safe with the purity ones. Thanks again.

    That name sounds familiar. I think most dimsum places are pretty good, they have to be for people to come back. I was after more than dimsum. Usually dimsum is at lunch time only in Australia.

    The best Chinese restaurant I went to in the UK so far has been in Newcastle. That's a bit out of the way for a quick bite. :P

    The free lunch was better than expected, mostly sandwiches with some other meat on stick dishes. Presentation was a bit dull but that's OK.

    Should I buy an iPad?

    Reasons for it: The newspaper I'll subscribe to has a great iPad app, with the high resolution, the support for VPN and all the scientific apps it would be great to read paper on it, it has a good Spotify app and Bluetooth earphones work very well with it, the app ecosystem is general the best, support for Exchange.

    Reasons against it: I don't like iOS, but I think iOS 7 is more to my taste. No native Office apps (but I wouldn't want to write on a tablet anyway). Very expensive.

    I'm probably not the best person to ask. I've never used an Apple product and don't plan to ever own one. I have nothing against Apple personally, to each their own. I do know the academic sciences use Apple products quite a bit so having an iPad could be ideal. They do have the best and largest 'quality' app selection though Android isn't too far behind. You can get a bluetooth keyboard.

    That's a good thing then, I hope your day got a little brighter!
    It's always a good day when you have a free lunch! :D
