Nokia and Verizon Wireless are teaming up to launch the Lumia 928, a variation of the Finnish phone maker’s flagship smartphone.
After a few days of teasing users with vague ads like one that ran in a recent issue of Vanity Fair, the company officially announced the expected device Friday morning through a blog post. And as many expected, the Lumia 928 appears to be very similar to the Lumia 920, a phone that launched last year exclusively for AT&T.
Nokia said the Lumia 928 features a 4.5-inch OLED HD screen. The device also features an 8.7-megapixel camera that comes with Nokia’s PureView technology, which is supposed to help fix blurry pictures and video and take high-quality shots in low light. A key difference between the Lumia 928 and the Lumia 920 is that the new device also features a xenon flash, which is much bigger than the one found on the older version of the phone. In its blog post, Nokia says users can leave their DSLR cameras at home thanks to the xenon flash.
Besides that, the phone appears to be identical to the Lumia 920, and as such, it includes wireless charging, meaning users can lay the phone on a charging pad and the device begin recharging without the use of a USB cable.
Nokia said the phone will launch on Thursday in stores and online with Verizon. It will be available for $100 with a two-year contract.
The company also has an event scheduled for Tuesday in London, where it promises to reveal what’s next for its Lumia line of phones. It’s unclear if Nokia will simply rehash Friday’s Lumia 928 announcement or if it has something else up its sleeve.
Twitter has a message for everyone this Mother’s Day: Stop using Twitter for once.
In a special Mother’s Day ad posted online Friday, Twitter touts its service for helping users connect with everyone from politicians to musicians, but when the person in the video starts to type out a tweet saying happy mother’s day to his mom, the narrator loses it: “What the f*ck are you doing? Give your mom a call!”
The ad is simply called #MothersDay. Ironically enough, the top tweet when you search for that hashtag right now is actually a Mother’s Day video that Google released earlier this week called “Here’s to the Mothers,” which promotes Google+ by showing how it can help you keep in touch with family.
I fully endorse this message!
Remember that thing called the television? Of course you do because you probably still own one … for now. But the newest evolution of show-watching on the Internet and mobile devices is putting the “telly” right up there with CD players on the list of electronics that aren’t quite as necessary anymore.
Video streaming service Netflix announced this week the addition of “post-play” to its iOS apps.
For those not in the know, post-play was made available to users on Netflix.com, PlayStation3 and Xbox in August 2012. At the end of a show, the next episode is on deck, ready to launch without any user interaction.
With movies, users will get a choice of three recommendations, although playback doesn’t start automatically. (Via Mashable)
Tech writers say this newest Netflix mobile addition is perfect for marathon viewing, also known by the less healthy-sounding name “binge watching.”
And it seems to be dropping just in time for the new season of “Arrested Development” which begins May 26 and will only be available on Netflix.
A writer for PolicyMic didn’t care to hold back his excitement, saying the show need only “exist” to do well on this new platform. He adds in the show’s history, there have been “zero unfunny episodes and counting.”
Besides commenting that “Arrested Development” was made for binge watching, a Time writer says the new Netflix-only offering “could be instrumental in popularizing a new way to watch and make TV–outside the TV-network system, without commercials or even weekly schedules. Netflix gave Arrested Development new life … and Arrested Development may be instrumental in helping Netflix (along with Amazon, Hulu, et al.) create a new TV business.”
Also in this week’s news of TV that’s not on TV, the Google-owned video website YouTube announced a pilot program for a group of partners to offer paid content via YouTube channel subscriptions, starting at $0.99 per month.
This includes small start-up channels, like Jim Henson Family TV, UFC Select and PGA Digital Golf Academy.
However, a writer for Forbes points out one thing is missing from YouTube’s list: major media companies. He writes a total defection away from TV sets is still a ways away, adding for Google to be really successful, it “has to prove subscriptions work for viewers,” then “create its own bundles to attract broader audiences and at the same time amass audience segments advertisers will want to reach.”
The Netflix-only season of “Arrested Development” is expected to be a hit, considering Netflix’s original series “House of Cards,” which proved to be a huge success for the company. Netflix plans to keep making original series; as do its competitors, Hulu and Amazon Prime.
After Microsoft replaced Hotmail six months ago with its new webmail service, Outlook.com, the tech giant is now integrating Skype into its product portfolio by delivering it to users’ inboxes.
Microsoft’s rolling out browser-integrated Skype calling to allow its webmail users to make audio and video calls using Outlook.com.
“Some moments are just right for Skype. Now it’s in your Outlook.com inbox.”
Assuming you’ve set up an account with Skype and with Microsoft’s email service, the next step is installing a browser plugin that connects Skype and Outlook.com. Skype says the plugin will be available for most versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox.
That’s when you’ll have more options for how you want to reach out to friends. Engadget points out Microsoft’s competitors have already connected video calling to a messaging service.
“Gmail’s added easy access to hangouts and even Facebook has integrated Skype-connected video into its messaging so we suppose it’s necessary for feature parity, with the added bonus of Skype’s large install base.”
The update doesn’t actually come as much of a surprise. Microsoft acquired Skype for $8.5 billion back in October 2011.
Additionally, The Verge reports Microsoft promised Skype video calling from the web when it unveiled Outlook.com webmail in July, but “While Outlook.com has seen a number of updates over the months, including a calendar UI refresh, Skype integration has been missing in action.”
Gizmodo says the software is actually a preview. “…depending on feedback, it’ll be redesigned and improved. Microsoft doesn’t use the word beta but… uh, that’s what it means.”
Microsoft says it will start the roll out in the U.K. today, in the U.S. and Germany in the coming weeks, and the rest of the world will have a peek by the summer.
Building on it’s better than expected results anticipated by Wall Street for its first-quarter earnings Netflix decided to take things up a notch by announcing a new family plan.
The company’s CEO and CFO said in a letter to shareholders that the two-stream limit is restrictive for large families, so for $12 a month, members will soon be able to stream four shows or movies at a time. (Via MSNBC)
Netflix expects only 1 percent of customers to opt for the new family plan.
The Verge reports most customers are content with their $8 subscription, but “for those of you letting friends and family ‘borrow’ your account credentials, things just got a bit more convenient.”
It seems the higher price of $12 by Netflix new family plan had in mind these very freeloaders . The announcement came after one analyst estimated just how many people are essentially streaming for free.
“10 million. That is how many could be watching Netflix without paying. That’s because Netflix let’s family and friends they let them share one account, but those days may be over soon.” (Via Bloomberg)
Hard to tell if the pricier, more convenient plan will catch on, but Geekosystem says “It’s a good day for cheap, misanthropic video streamers.”
CNBC reports the new plan came after Netflix impressed investors with solid subscriber growth and better than expected first quarter profits, making this the second quarter in a row that Netflix surprised to the upside.
“Shares are up more than 80 percent this year alone and that makes this company one of Wall Street’s hottest performers. At this point, though, up about 23% percent on these numbers from last night. That’s a gain of $41.”
Netflix didn’t give specifics on when exactly you and your closest friends, I mean family members, when it will roll out its new plan.
Scientists at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston have officially created a functioning rat kidney.
The new kidney’s aren’t entirely built from scratch. Scientists stripped down donor kidneys of their cells creating a “scaffold” and they added new cells that grew new tissue on those “scaffolds.” (Via Nature Medicine)
Lead scientist, Harald Ott describes his team’s “aha” moment when the tissue started working.
“These kidneys started to make rudimentary urine. In the last step of this experiment as the ultimate step of principal we were able to take these kidneys from culture and transplant them into an animal model.” (Via Nature Video)
And the kidney continued to work once inside the rat. This breakthrough discovery is so exciting because New Scientist writes it may lead the way for human organs “…potentially [providing] an inexhaustible supply of organs, eliminating the need for recipients to wait for a matching donor kidney.”
Which would solve an ever-growing problem in the United States. The scientists involved in the discovery say 18,000 people get a kidney transplant every year but 100,000 remain on the waiting list.
Dr. Ott did mention the created kidneys aren’t ideal or complete yet because they don’t function as well as natural ones. One reason why might be because of the immaturity of the kidney cells used. In order to scale the technique to use for humans, Dr. Ott says he’ll use pig kidneys that are similar size to humans. (Via The New York Times)
As for Ott’s next step, he says, “We’re now investigating methods of deriving the necessary cell types from patient-derived cells and refining the cell-seeding and organ culture methods to handle human-sized organs.” (Via Science Codex)
The study was published Sunday in the journal Nature Medicine.

Will it be three strikes and you’re out for British funnyman Ricky Gervais? The caustic comedian told E! News– the Golden Globes want him back as their headliner for the third year in a row.
“NBC have indeed asked me to consider doing it again. However I think the Hollywood Foreign Press would need an awful lot of persuading. I would love to work with NBC again as they have been nothing but supportive and honorable but I’m not sure a third hosting would be as much fun as the second.”
This is the second time Gervais is claiming the Golden Globes want him back behind the mic–the first time was after the 2011 Golden Globes.
But in February– Gervais told TMZ he was done hosting the Globes.
“Do you think they will? Well, it doesnt really matter, I’m not gonna do it anyway. I said I wasnt gonna do it a second time, but I think two.. I think twice is enough. Did you enjoy yourself? I..yeah I loved it more than last year actually.”
But a writer for Music Rooms says Gervais’ performance last year was just what the Golden Globes needed– despite controversy surrounding some of his more off-putting jokes.
“I still fail to see what the fuss was over Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes. Ricky Gervais is a comedian… Comedians thrive off joking at the expense of others and no other more than celebrities. For me, Gervais’ turn at the Awards were what made the Awards. Who hosted the Golden Globes the year before that? Or the year before that? I couldn’t tell you.”
Next Movie says they aren’t holding their breath for Gervais’ return– not that they’re too broken up about it.
“We doubt Ricky will be back for 2012. But if it works out, the HFPA better send out a press release to all of the nominees telling them to prepare themselves accordingly.”
“Here’s an answer for you, Ricky: you’re going back as the only guy with the balls to stand in front of a bunch of celebrities patting themselves and each other on the back and call them out on it. I say give it another go!”
Neither NBC nor the Hollywood Foreign Press Association commented on Gervais’ claim.
It is official, Osama Bin Laden is dead.
This video seems to explain the great triumph in what has just happened, all I can say is, time will tell.
Imagine waking up in the morning, going to work–and undressing. No, you’re not a stripper, but rather…a web coder? The Sydney Morning Herald explains the job would pay about $38,000 a year.
“The ad has been placed on craigslist, a classifieds website. Headed ‘Nude Web Coders Wanted’, it offers part-time or full-time positions and customers ‘who never meet you and will not know you are nude’.”
Of course there have been a few ‘cheeky’ responses. Animated news-makers for Taiwanese-run NMA TV certainly went all the way with this video:
ANCHOR READ OVER: “Boss Chris Taylor said Nude House is hoping to attract more females to ‘balance the numbers’. With seven applicants so far, Taylor said they are working hard to weed out the undesirables.”
Nude House founder Chris Taylor says his company is the only one in the world, as far he knows, to offer naturists proper work. But at least one writer in the blogosphere just doesn’t get it.
“I totally don’t understand the purpose of this, what does having clothes got to do with Coding?”
But Taylor insists he is just trying to provide a comfortable work environment for those looking to free themselves from the confines of clothes. All Headline News quotes the Nude House boss.
“‘Sex does not play a part in naturism – yes one is aware of differences in sex and size and shape and age of everyone, but the concern is on sales and technical ability, not availability.”
Taylor is looking to hire 16-17 workers–and interviews will be held in the nude as well.
Freedom of religion versus freedom from religion — that’s the ongoing debate in France now, as a law banning Muslim burqas — or, veiled face coverings — goes into effect Monday.
France is home to Europe’s largest Muslim population. Only around 2,000 women wear the veils–not many considering there’s an estimated four to six million Muslims in France. Neighboring countries also sometimes see the practice as a form of radical Islam. (Video: NBC)
Burqas and niqabs will be banned in public places, like restaurants, schools, and public transportation. So, how will France enforce such a ban? The Telegraph reports — it won’t be by handcuffs:
“Under the new law, women who wear face-covering Muslim veils… face being fined £125 or ordered to follow citizenship classes, or both… Husbands and fathers who force such veils on women and girls risk a year of prison and a £25,000 fine, with both penalties doubled if the victim is a minor.”
The fine, £125, calculates to just over $200 US. And £25,000 — nearly $41,000!
France is a secular country — insistent upon separation of church and state since the early 1900s. Leading up to Monday’s ban, French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s UMP party held a debate on secularism. But all this has media outlets wondering if it’s just a political ploy?
“The enactment of the law and the opening of the secularism debate come a year before French presidential elections, with a survey… showing late last month that Sarkozy doesn’t have enough support to make it through to the second round of the vote.”
The BBC says, maybe — but there COULD BE a real problem with immigrant assimilation into French society:
“Some politicians see it is a vote winner – and that may be true. But as Muslims become more visible, there is a concern that some of them are pushing separate identities. And that could lead to parallel, rather than integrated communities.”
American media — used to the idea of freedom of… well, everything — has struggled to report this story without bias. But in an Op-Ed for the Los Angeles Times, one writer explains how to look at this issue from both sides:
“We may not like their choice. We may find it disturbing and offensive. But it is, in its way, as much a form of free expression as cartoons of Mohammad, which these women, in turn, will find disturbing and offensive. And that’s the deal in a free society: The bur[q]a wearer has to put up with the cartoons; the cartoonist has to put up with the bur[q]as.”
In addition to the ban, the French Interior Minister Claude Guéant says the government wants to reduce the number of immigrants allowed to enter the country legally — for either work, or family reasons.
Video report from the guardian.co.uk
Detective Superintendent Steve Fulcher tells reporters a 47-year-old suspect has told police the location of two bodies. One is missing Swindon woman Sian O’Callaghan, 22.
Sian O’Callaghan went missing on Saturday night after leaving a night club alone. Police have arrested a 47-year-old taxi driver for kidnap and murder. Chris Halliwell is believed to have given police the location of a second body – according to the Sun, a prostitute who went missing more than a decade ago.
A Face Book user writes to her friends “This is definitely a wake up call for me. Police found missing girl Sian O’Callaghan murdered body yesterday. Girls, if you’re going out with friends, leave with friends. Don’t walk off by yourself or leave without telling someone. Also, check the car you’re going in IS a taxi. I’m someone who’s guilty of walking off without telling people where I’m going! We all have to be careful these days.”
To Sian’s family and friends this is now a time of deep mourning, to many of us this is just a disturbing and sad story, another statistic. Yet if we take this lesson and encourage our female friend to never walk alone at night, this tragedy may not be repeated.
Never Walk Alone.
All legitimate taxi’s or mini cabs have a Taxi license next the number plate at the rear of the vehicle. Or the carry the name of the mini cab office on the side of the vehicle. It is strongly advised if a vehicle does not have the Taxi license do not get into that vehicle for any reason. And if a driver is posing as a Taxi driver or operating as a Taxi driver with out the appropriate license is is a criminal offense.
As I am watching this video of a new fissure eruption at Kilauea Volcano, I can almost feel a red hot ball of lava hitting my skin, and I my only thought is “what if this thing really goes?”
It seems unpredictable as to how intense the eruption will become, although there is talk of more to come.

Is any tool associated with science quite like the microscope? Well the old standard just got better – Now researchers have built a microscope that uses beams like those found in barcode scanners to watch single cells in real time. InventorSpot explains why this is a big deal.
“The big trick is in the light. The sweep of the Bessel beam creates a very thin light sheet, which is minimally invasive. With existing microscopy technology, it has been possible to observe tiny things in 3D, but not for long — because the intense light required kills, or severely damages, whatever it is you’re observing.”
The new illumination tricks let the researchers record cells doing their thing in high-resolution. It lets researchers study the goings-on of cell structures in a way they never could before.
The researchers compared it to learning the rules of a sport. Watching the players in a film teaches you the rules quicker than studying snapshots. Likewise, watching chromosomes divide in real time lets researchers learn about the process in much more detail. (Video source: HHMI)
Getting the images clear was tricky. Bessel beams create a lot of noise in the image, lowering the resolution. To get around this, lead researcher Eric Betzig had to pull in every microscopy trick he could find.
“The first is a concept called structured illumination, where instead of sweeping the beam continuously, they turned it on and off rapidly, like firing a machine gun. … Another strategy Betzig’s group used is two-photon microscopy, a method commonly used in neuroscience to visualize thick pieces of brain tissue.” (HHMI)
Betzig has been creating new microscopes for decades, and he’s not done yet. PopSci reports he’s already looking forward to his next innovation.
“The next step could be combining the Bessel beam plane technique with super-resolution techniques, Betzig said. That would be something — with no limits on how small we can see, and an imaging technique that take movies without harming organisms, the possibilities seem endless.”
One of those possibilities: watching the delicate structures on the famous HeLa cell – a cancer cell taken from a woman in 1951 kept alive today — in a way never possible before. (Video source: HHMI)
Lawmakers in the House just bought two more weeks in a game of kick the can down the road. The price of avoiding a government shutdown? $4 billion. In budget cuts, that is.
The temporary emergency funding resolution passed late Tuesday will keep the lights on in Washington after the current — temporary — funding resolution expires Friday. (VIDEO FROM C-SPAN)
And despite Tea Party demands – President Obama’s health care law IS funded in the measure — just for the next two weeks though. For The Huffington Post’s Dan Froomkin – that’s the story: Tea Party ideals versus establishment Republicans’ need to compromise with Democrats.
“Tea Party leaders … hotly demanded that the members of the caucus not settle for anything less than defunding the Obama health care law… And they made it clear Republicans who don’t stand firm will face primary opponents in 2012.”
But most of the House Tea Party caucus voted for the measure – despite policy disagreements about funded programs like health care. Slate’s David Weigel says – that’s probably a sign that in the end — a cut is a cut — no matter where it comes from.
“The vote … hinted at how much concern Republicans had about spending cuts even if they didn’t hit all the right policy notes. Only six Republicans [voted against it].”
But it’s not over ‘til the Senate says it is — and that vote happens later Wednesday. As CNBC’s John Harwood reports – no matter what happens there — keep in mind this two week funding resolution means lawmakers still don’t have a plan for keeping government running past late March.
“That puts off the threat of a shutdown til later this month, but it doesn’t end that threat because you still have difficult negotiations between the House which has called for $61 billion in cuts through the rest of this fiscal year, and the Senate, and the White House.”
To deficit hawk Republicans – The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin suggests rather than work on one budget for the rest of the year — why not keep doing the two-week temporary funding thing?
“Wouldn’t a fight every two weeks between Republicans wanting to cut spending and Democrats refusing to make cuts be a boon to the GOP? … It’s an odd way to run the government, but a series of short-term extensions … sounds like a nightmare for the White House and the Democratic congressional leadership. There could be no better illustration of the Democrats’ defense of the big-government status quo.”
But while Rubin surveys the political spoils – TIME’s Jay Newton-Small says in the end — nobody wins. And that end – by the way – is a long ways away. GOP leaders want to cut $61 billion through the rest of this fiscal year.
“The stopgap agreement does little to resolve the underlying conflict. … these cuts are low hanging fruit. Republicans and Democrats have some bitter fights coming … Which means, that though Republicans have won this battle, the war over the size and role of government is far from over.”
Far, far from over — reports CNN’s Briana Keilar.
“There are, unlike this short term bill – tons of cuts in there that Democrats don’t like, that really undercut Democratic priorities. … trying to see if they can come to a compromise, and they might not be able to do it. There may have to be another short term measure to keep kicking the can down the road until they can reach an agreement.”

“The big question on everyone’s mind- a future without Mubarak, what does it mean for Egypt, and what does it mean for the U.S.?” (Video: WSJ)
Egyptians protested for 18 days before President Mubarak stepped down… but now that their wishes have been granted, there’s still a lingering question: what’s next? Or is it even time for the next step yet?
BBC reports it’s not over yet– some people haven’t left the streets and tanks are still protecting important buildings.
REPORTER: “Are you staying, or are you going?”
MAN: “Because we want to … all demands. We want to… all demands.”
MAN 2: “We want to stay beside our army. We want to stay together hand-in-hand with them, until we have our aims. All our aims.”
Historically, Egypt’s last four presidents were from the military… and now it’s that military that runs Egypt. CNN reports Egypt’s Supreme Council has members from the army, airforce, navy and air defense forces.
“The big questions, of course, is who is calling the shots in Egypt? Well right now it is Egypt’s Supreme Military Council. The military of course remains a powerful institution, one of the bedrocks of Egyptian society.”
Reports say Egypt’s goal is to hold a September election. The Wall Street Journal interviewed its Washington Bureau Chief–who says the results of an election from a country not familiar with democracy is hard to call.
JERRY SEIB: “I think that administration’s hope is that there could be a methodical process that works toward a September election. (flash) Some people around this town are not sure that can be done. It’s hard to hold an election, it’s particularly hard to hold an election when you have no particular experience in your country having free and fair elections.”
Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren interviewed Egypt’s Ambassador to the U.S., who said Egypt will create a new government–specifically for its own culture.
SHOUKRY: I believe there is always a third alternative, and that is government to govern Egypt, to govern Egyptians. There will be an Egyptian formula that will be the result of free and fair elections, one that will draw on the history of Egypt, on its development, on the nature of its people, and one which we hope will create a better environment for all Egyptians.”
…but a writer for The Guardian remains skeptical.
“But it is not too early to ask: what next? The so-called Higher Military Council inspires no confidence. Does another military strongman lurk in the regime’s entrails?”
The Egyptian army is assuring an orderly transition… but what do you think? Are the Egyptians well on their way to democracy–or is the real battle just beginning?

Thailand and Cambodia could be on the brink of war — all over an 11th-century temple. Back in 1962, the World Court ruled the temple — Preah Vihear — belongs to Cambodia. Ever since, Thailand has refused to accept the ruling. Then, the temple was designated a World Heritage Site in 2008. Since then, the tension has only increased. It all boiled over beginning last Friday, and clashes near the temple have killed as many as seven people.
Thailand’s prime minister insists these are small clashes — skirmishes — and nothing more. But Cambodia’s prime minister says otherwise.
Hun Sen: “He called these armed clashes. But I told him they were not. This is war. So Cambodia is asking the UN security council to call immediate meeting on this situation.”
Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister is simply trying to restore peace.
Korn Chatikavanij: “There’s no saber-rattling on our part. And I think it’s quite clear that there has been no victory cry on the part of the Thai government. We’ve moved as quickly as possible and consistently so during the two or three days of fighting that did break out to try to bring the fighting to a halt.”
An analyst for global intelligence website STRATFOR says domestic politics in both countries isfueling the conflict at the border.
“…on the Thai side you have elections approaching which are supposed to be held during the first half of the year, these are very contentious elections and that’s forced all the special interest groups and factions in Thai politics to push on their major issues.”
The Council on Foreign Relations blames the Thailand’s domestic politics — namely — the fact Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva doesn’t seem to have control over the country’s military.
“On the Thai side, the conflict is being pushed by nationalists linked to the People’s Alliance for Democracy, but the military men taking action along the border often seem to be doing so either without informing Abhisit or informing his office well after the fact.”
The UN security council responded to a plea by Cambodia and will meet with both nations on Monday.
The FCC could possibly make a move in a short while that will devastate the internet as we know it, the above video is perfect in explaining the basic understanding of what we currently have in place, compared to what might happen if the FCC do take this path.
What I feel we need is a strong voice, total clarification on what is being planned, and how to keep our beautiful internet free, indeed.

This week I have been bombarded by iPhone requests, from “when is ICU Online going to have an iPhone app?” to my writers saying “Hey General no worries I can post for Blog Central from my iPhone”.
Then I go to a business meeting which was suppose to be an hour long, 55 minutes was spent looking through the 1001 applications my colleague had on his iPhone (which included a lie detector, a spirit level and the iFart, that’s right, choose the fart sound you want to hear and believe me it sounds real. Excellent if you are in a crowded elevator. The last 5 minutes were spent rescheduling the meeting for another time.
It seems the iPhone is the all in one everything, and a new application seems to be created for it everyday. So the question is now put out there, do you know anyone addicted to their iPhone? Think about it, even if they were, who would notice? Business meetings being taken over by applications, are relationships suffering at home because someone would rather play with their application than to play with the misses? Whilst Apple is moving from strength to strength with the most innovative product of this decade I am thinking of starting the ‘iPhone Anonymous’ to help those who can no longer live without an iPhone. Guys, its only a phone.
The Video “iPhone Addiction” is the excellent work from Brigitte Meuwsen and Havavision Records Dreadlox Holmes. This excellent work perfectly captures the vibe of someone being out shone by their partners iPhone.
Hmmm, well thinking about it, the iPhone wont argue with you, wont stand you up and will always keep you entertained. I might just pop down to the Apple Store and sign myself up.
