    Yes, but you will still need to stay current in your field. A degree without staying up to date isn't worth much. A younger guy with a more recent degree can be brought in for cheaper.
    darn these young people !

    I am sorry, but I find myself very funny at the moment. Even though I objectively know it's not funny at all. But you have to enjoy the little things ;-)
    see and that is what happens when coffee is involved !

    Yeah the Microsoft, Cisco and compTia only last for three years then you got to retake which I don't mind however I would like something that will last a life time that why I'm going for a degree.
    You recert every 3 years to stay current. You still have legacy certs that stay on your transcript if you don't stay current. In a way, a degree is a legacy cert if you don't take classes to stay current in your field.

    I've stated a few times that I don't like SD cards that much. Well I'm proving correct that they are horrible things and should not be in phones anymore. The brand spanking new 1520 is already showing issues with the SD card. People are getting duplicate photos or the SD card isn't working. No word on music yet.

    I'm sorry but SD cards need to go. Either they simply don't work with WP or the implementation isn't working. Something is wrong somewhere and it's making WP look like crap.
    I never got duplicate pics or songs on my SD card

    I said WP. Not Android and not Surface/2. There seems to be some issue with SD cards on WP. Saying that I still think they're horrible things and I hope they go the way of floppy disks.
    but SD cards are used for cameras though

    The HTC 8X 16GB arrived last night. It is an absolute delight and not to mention in mint condition. So now I am really torn between it and the 810. The 920 I am sorry to say is going to go up for sale even with its fancy DT-910 wireless charger:-(
    I wana see :P

    Um, internal memory on a camera would be a lot better and quicker than any card. It would also be more reliable.

    What degree are you looking at? Different from the IT field? My sister has a degree in economics, couldn't do a thing with it for years. She decided to get her CPA. She's been working steady ever since. But she does have to recert her CPA every two years to stay current with the tax laws and statutes? A degree is never a bad thing, but depending on the degree you still might need a little more to be a viable career. But at least you can say you have a degree while you are flipping hamburgers.

    I'll get off my soap box with my unsolicited advice. I'm sure he has a family member already boring him to death with such things.

    I'm currently working in IT now as an IT Technician officially for one year now before that I volunteered for two years at my secondary school IT department which the network manager and IT Technician been in IT for 10 or 15 years both working in different areas private, public, telecoms, council etc.

    Learned alot from them two and always keep in touch every week or so and always ask for advice about what to do such as certifications etc.

    The IT technician advice to get a degree for higher roles and it good to have the network manager said read and learn as many certifications in the field that you want to go into.

    However both agreed experience is alot more important.

    it would be faster but most cameras I see require to have some sort of SD cards ..I guess people are already used to using them on a daily basis
