Hi everyone just joined the forum, i am 30 have 2 unbelievably amazing kids and a serious caffine problem.

Work wise i am an IT Specialist for a large global enterprise within the Test and Measurement sector. My interest in WP7 comes mainly from being a huge WM6 fan and a closet MS ******. I was lucky enough to get the Mozart on Orange UK several weeks early and haven't looked back since.

At present we are mainly a Blackberry based Enterprise but following the recent issues with RIM and the cost of maintaining BES servers we are looking closely at WP 7. Currently we have about 20 WP7 handsets in the wild compared to about 500 BB's and 50 Android devices.

Slowly but surely WP7 will win the day. Probably lol

Snap. Except I have no kids and I work in Server Support in a Housing Group. :) I'm also with a Mozart on Orange. Didn't manage to get mine early though. :(

Similarly stuck with a BES infrastructure, desperately trying to break free. :p

Haha!

I used to work for a Scottish company here in the states and during the last world cup in South Africa we were all watching England playing Germany and me being the dumb American that I am I said to my Scottish co-worker "So you are probably rooting for England huh?" There was a long pause, and I swear if looks could kill I would be dead. That was followed up by a bunch of profanity on his part and me being completely embarrassed.

We had a good laugh afterwards though. From that point on I have never forgot about the relations between Scotts and Brits. I knew the Irish and Brits didn't get along but now I know how the Scotts feel too. :D

No wonder you got a look like that TaliZorah, Rooting for England ?

I think the biggest annoyance for me has to be Americans referring to the whole of the UK as England when it in fact is 4 different countries. Scotland, England, Wales & Northern Ireland.

I think it's slowly changing though although it does still happen most of the time.

Taking another calm pill here. :D

Ahhhh, normality has been returned. ;)

We love the English really TaliZorah. (Cough choke splutter etc etc) ;)

I'm sure they love us just as much. :D

LOL. I will be honest, all of the people that I know, know the entire UK isn't just England. I could see where that stereotype comes from though. Just don't let the media or politics speak for all American citizens - they make us all look stupid :p

I promise you that most of us are not gun-toting gangsters that watch Jerry Springer every day and listen to Lady Gaga.
