    my job interest have always been setting the ground work for computers. Like setting up the computers, cables, programs, networking, anything that its setting things up and making sure they are working. That's what I've always enjoyed doing.
    To make my life easier. Is there a job title for that??? I used to do a lot of that when I was younger but can't be bothered now.

    It sounds like your best option is an IT help desk or something along those lines.

    I hate this ****ty Google keyboard on my P9.
    A guy at my work has the P9. He's quite happy with it.

    It's my first time seeing one. Nice looking device

    The work you're currently doing (unless I'm mistaken) doesn't appear to be along the same lines of what you want to do.

    If you can't find a job due to experience, you may want to consider doing some workplace experience either through a company or by volunteering. This would be on your free time but you need to look beyond that.

    I totally understand that you want to work, I get that, but you don't want to get caught in the work trap, which is getting stuck in a job simply because you're getting paid.

    It's very easy to fall into this trap.

    And I've got the type of excitement going on that's best left offline, as work is becoming more of a headache...

    Agreed. Volunteer or intern are solid ways to pick up experience. Be creative in your search to do so. Everyone has responsibilities to meet and that can drive them getting a job, but it's better to have a career than a job.

    When my wife deals with people wanting to change career paths she always mentions getting experience in that field through unpaid work placement or volunteering. Having some sort of 'official' experience is better than none, otherwise you just end up in a position where you get your schooling done and you have no work or start from the bottom again.

    Not sure where Sahib is working currently but if has opportunity to do the work he wants there then that will help. At the moment it just seems to be a phone repair shop unless it also does PCs.

    Other option is to start your own part time business helping small businesses. I did suggest this some time back. Usually there's a huge gap in a market to help small businesses as most larger IT companies tend to be too expensive for them.

    I don't mind the Google Keyboard.... though it could be better.

    I tried a couple of other keyboards and didn't like them as much.

    Well, so much for the third party Pokemon Go app... That didn't last long. Even if they get it going again it will probably be stopped again by another update.

    Oh well. I'm sure it was nice when it worked. :P

    What is the issue? I use it on all my devices including the Huawei when I had it and had no issues with it. Some of the new add ons have been quite useful as well.

    In other news, I used the Starbucks app on my Lumia 640 yesterday without any issues. Hopefully the Wallet 2.0 will be able to handle payments at more locations.

    I used it to... It seems you have to add a PIN to keep from having to log in every time the app is opened... And the pin is a little slow to respond so you can't speed through entering it. Other than that, and the lack of preordering, it's a nice app and welcome on my start screen.

    Hopefully mobile ordering will be added. That's a really great feature on the iOS and Android versions of the Starbucks app.

    Not a functional issue, more of preference. I find a few keys not to my liking, swipe is less accurate, word recommendations and and having to backspace everytime, gets to me.

    Word recommendations will improve over time. Google has had about 4 years of my typing habits/data so it is not a problem for me. However, MSFT WordFlow was better out of the box. Swype is good in Google Keyboard but yes WP has a better Swype keyboard IMO. However, the WP8.1 keyboard was better than the Win10 keyboard.

    Agreed. WP8.1 keyboard was one of the best ones i've ever used.
