    You going to get the google play edition (stock android) or regular?
    Oh, I'm getting the regular. Google Play Edition **** is like highway robbery at this point. I can get the regular HSPA+ or the European LTE models from the two websites I use - Expansys USA and another one that ships stuff from Taiwan for under $520 (under $500 for the HSPA+ model). I like the black, but would probably get the white one to go with my white 920 and my white Nokia Play 360 speaker (which is a damn fine speaker, actually). Gonna watch the prices closely and if they come down enough and I get a refund from school on time late this month or early February, I may pull the trigger.

    I think I will keep the following devices:

    8X for my daily driver on the commute Monday - Thursday

    920 for my Friday - Sunday and all camera related outings

    N4 to flash ROMs and traveling international

    Z Ultra as my Android casual gaming tablet (my N4 does this jib right now)

    T100 - for school and work presentations

    PC - flashing ROMs and local data storage

    if I were going android it would be stock ...because I hate touchwiz with a passion and I hate the other UI of any manufacture that has android :P
    For my tastes, Moto and Sony have the best skins. Sense has gotten better but I've have outgrown it, and TouchWiz I never liked. Everyone else I never found appealing. I like Sony's skin and stock Android the best because stock visually has come along way, and Sony finally has a cleanness to the Xperia launcher I appreciate.

    I like Sony's clear audio, along with the Beats in my 8X (my Touchpad has Beats in it and I thoroughly enjoyed it). This is why I cannot own a Nokia currently as a full daily driver anymore - their WP8 Audio is a weakness. The T100 has surprisingly good audio for a tablet. So I'm trolling for a Z Ultra now.

    Good night folks. It is still single digits here in NYC but it should be 20 degrees warmer tomorrow...just in time to make the mid week after office drinking outgoing more palatable...

    ive seen the sony launcher and I would not like it that much but I can probably stand htc sense UI but stock android is the only one I can stand just because I used it for a few hours and I already liked it :)

    well their audio I think is lacking on the nokia side but I can deal with it because I don't use it to listin to music as much because I have an MP3 for that but I do like the equalizer on the nokia phones :)

    Good morning! After all this important stuff some random personal news: I just went for a run, and my knee hurts. I should probably see a doctor... I'm afraid it could be my meniscus. I'll see how my knee feels Sunday, if it still hurts, I'll call my insurance. (Yes, I have to call my insurance before I can see a doctor, makes it much cheaper.)

    The first 2500 Swiss Francs (2750 $) I have to pay myself. If my bills get higher, my insurance kicks in.

    Just to go into this a little bit more: In Switzerland, everybody has good health care. This is not because money grows on trees here, this is because the law forces everybody to spend her or his money on health insurance. If I had an insurance which pays for everything (without the 2500 Swiss Francs), health insurance would cost me around 15 % of my income. And this is before I have paid taxes. As I am, possibly apart from my knee, very healthy, I decided to have this 2500 Swiss Francs clause.

    And then, these 15 % I'm writing about. That's only basic health care, if you want fancy things like any kind of alternative treatment, you have to pay even more.

    But I give you that: If somebody can't afford health insurance in Switzerland, this person is still required by law to have one. So social institutes pay for it. But believe me, being in this situation also sucks in Switzerland.

    I'm sorry to hear about your injury.

    I hope you'll be feeling better soon and won't need knee surgery.

    Soon I have a teaching assignment, and I did this course a few years ago, but I have forgotten everything. It's complicated stuff, and I should be able to explain it. It will be fun to learn all of this once more...

    I see that the forum is getting full of whine threads again... sigh.

    I like to have a whinge every so often but I sometimes wish the mods would simply shut them down. It's rather depressing seeing the same stupid comments over and over again. Not to mention there's several Sticky Threads with the information people are whining about.

    So... there's my whinge. I'll probably have more. :P
