    All I will say is that the Obamacare idea is good, the intent is good, but the execution is TBD. Americans just hate being told what to do and will often pick an evil over a good choice just because they detest the urge of being told what to do a lot more than the choices themselves - see the Tea Party.
    I find the idea of caring for those who need it as 'being told what to do' very odd. I never understood the US medical system. It baffled me continuously the whole time I lived in Canada.

    Dang they are coming out with good phones .....now I'm having trouble deciding on my future phone .....I would like the 1020, but I like the 925, but I also like the 929 on vzn,but I like the 928 also......gah to many good phone out right now
    the 929 looks really good in those renders. I'd actually own one as my one all-in-one device. I still want a 1020 but would settle for a t-mo 925 on a cheap price...

    I would too like the 925 but I would like the 32 gb version also I wish the wireless charging was integrated but I like the 1020 for awesome pictures and bragging rights :P but the 928 because it has everything that I want but its on vzn and the also the hassle of finding the right apns to work on T-Mobile and as for the 929 its even better than the 928 but it has dual LED instead of xenon flash but the thing that I would want for my forever phone would be the shape of the 925 a 32 gb version with mico sd slot with removable battery with wireless charging intergraded ( like my 810) and a Xenon flash .....if only that were possible

    The short version is this. From a historical perspective, there are 2 schools of though in the US, especially among the privileged. One group says that it is up to the individual to make his own way. He doesn't need help from the government when there are hard times, he doesn't need anyone telling him what to do as he will make it based on his own efforts. This is the slop the Tea Party and generally speaking, the Republicans follow philosophically.

    Another group says that not everyone has the same breaks or opportunities and everyone would have access to help whenever they really need it. This country was built in all collective efforts, even by those the system excluded. Let's take care of everyone by creating an equal opportunity. That's the Democrats (generally).

    There are pros and cone to both approaches. These baseline views play into all aspects of US culture, especially in the fields of healthcare and the economy. What's really needed is an effective mix of both approaches, especially once race/ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation and class get added into the mix. Make no mistake, all the Tea Party folks seen on TV are well off - the upper crust. While you won't see the poor/disadvantaged Tea Party faces on TV, you will see them out voting in force on policies that may hurt them directly just to hold ranks cuz they like the rhetoric.

    Sorry folks, not trying to talk politics here, but when one studies the idiosyncracies behind policy in the US, it fascinates and repulses at the same time...

    I do know the tea party sucks, but this is not all of the Republican faults. There are many problems with ObamaCare, as well as with benefits, but so far, ObamaCare has been a disaster.

    What you want is currently called the 1520, sans the 32GB internal storage. The 1020 doesn't have wireless charging built in. you wont see apn setting for VZW phones for a while because MMS (which includes group SMS) is still sent through their CDMA radios. That's why i sold my 8X and got the unlocked model instead because i get a ton of MMS.

    personally, I'm not blaming the Republicans. I agree Obamacare has holes in it (see my earlier posts). Both sides have screwed up. I've merely outlined in my own words in my previous post is the source historical context of the mindsets that shape policy on both sides today.

    while I would like to get the 1520 but its to big for me the biggest I would go is 5in and I like AMOLED over LCD until all of that or something around the lines that comes out what I want I will stick with my 810

    5" is my absolute max at this point. Anything between 4.3-4.7" works for me. Still, the 929 and the Xperia z1 and maybe the Nexus 5 are phones I'd go to 5" for. The GF owns a S4 and I go "meh" when I have to use it. I used to love AMOLED more but I still like HTC, especially done by HTC a lot. So either is fine by me...

    So I'm still trolling for a 1020 but if I can get a deal on a 925, I'd take that...

    Life is strange. Isn't it? I think it's very strange. Also I was really hyped by OLED in the beginning, then I realized it's not that great, at least in my opinion.

    There's a guy at my work with an iPad Air. Nothing special really but the usual 'i' dribble.
    Meh, i don't see anything special about the iPad Air. I'll have the little pleasure of getting one for school...
