Don't be mean to Batmarde :(
I mentally read that whole thing in a thick Russian accent, made it a lot funnier for some reason. (I don't know who this Batmarde guy is :x )
[QUOTE=Protocol7;35883156]Not even AppHub's fault, it's the complete integration of microsoft services that I hate. I wanted to like Metro but I couldn't. And my phone was a piece of shit, I had to reboot to get 3G to work whenever it disconnected. Verizon wasn't any help when I called before I placed the eBay order so I just decided to hack together a cool, personal iPhone.[/QUOTE] So, does WP7 actually have any chance of being taken seriously? I mean I couldn't use the thing, I'm constantly fiddling with Android, new wallpaper, launcher, kernel and ROM whenever I feel like farting around.

But Microsoft just fucked it up big time. They're so bad to devs, which is why no one develops for it.

Granted, there's only like two apps I use (weather and public transport thingy) because it's a fucking phone. Why would I want to play games on my phone? Why would I want to fiddle around with the OS? And customization I can understand, but I like Metro as it is. It does what I want it to do, and good.

Personally I'm still wowed by Metro, and the UI overall is fast, fluid and new. To me it seems that you're still a bit mad about the phone being shit and Verizon not helping. Just saying that it seems like you're more annoyed by its existence than what's reasonable.

I'm not liking the sound of the rumoured WP8 update fiasco that is ~supposed~ to take place either. [editline]9th May 2012[/editline] I'm not saying metro is bad either, it looks great, I'd just probably tire of it really quickly.
[img]http://puu.sh/tBlO[/img] Posted this over in PC Building but that subforum seems to be nearly dead, what do you guys think of this planned build? It comes to $1464 AUD. I've been told it's not really good enough for the money I'm paying, sure, I have to pay a little extra for some things due to being in Australia, but is it ridiculous? What do you guys think?

And what have you heard about WP8 and a supposed fiasco? It's just a major update. Are you talking about the rumour that all phones will get the update or-? I'd hugely prefer of MS kept the updates the way they are right now - for everyone - and I won't be saying "hurr durr fragmentation", but for general consumers - that don't have the option of flashing a ROM - it would be precisely the same as with android. I'd argue that MS still has done a better job than many other companies, first generation phones are still getting updated. Either way it's a rumor, I'll wait for the release before judging anything.

You should probably do the same if the price difference isn't too big.
[QUOTE=Protocol7;35883014]lol no I'm replacing a 4G iPod touch and my Windows Phone (windows phone is boring and not that great stay away from it) It was $375 total $280 for an iPhone with a cracked screen, $60 for this REALLY fucking cool screen replacement and the rest is shipping (like $30 ouch)[/QUOTE] How do you replace the screen?

I fucking hate being on a single monitor again. Even though I have been like this for almost 2 months. I feel like I am out of space. Sadly I only have a 17" monitor in my basement. My main one is a 19" one, it is weird like that probably then.
Should i buy the Lumia 800 or wait until windows phone 8 comes out. Will the Lumia 800 get updates to windows phone 8?

And most old Sony Ericsson phones had more theming options and flexibility. I hate to say it, but you can coerce more flexibility out of an iPhone easier than WP7, and that really is saying something.

[url]http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=210_902_909[/url] Seeing as the price difference for the Crucial M4 is quite harsh and I'm just at the edge of my budget, what other brands here are there that are reliable but around the price of the Agility? And you're sure it's decent value? I'm worried I'm gonna make stupid choices like I have with all my previous computers.
