    I've had that keyboard for the past few months and it's not a bad keyboard, but the keys don't feel tactile enough for me. They're a bit.. hmm.. squidgy? That's just my opinion though. I like the backlit arrow keys, although I wish wasd lit up when switching modes.

    Went on a bit of a spending spree past 2 weeks;

    6 blurays
    ScanTool usb obdII code reader
    some garage wall hooks
    garden hose reel
    another 3td red drive to replace a failed drive in my server
    flash drive and card reader
    microfiber detergent
    Sanaponic 50" LED TV with 7 Year Warranty (the price of the warranty is refundable for store credit after the 7 years is up if there is no claim made) :rock: :rock:

    i was hoping to get a bigger tv but i'll take a higher quality 50" or a cheaper 60".


    also am likely getting a electric heater installed soon to replace our baseboard heaters. already have central air conditioning so basically just need to cut a hole and stick a heater in. :)

    Which model is that? I've been needing a portable edit machine for ages, just holding back due to lack of funds for a MBP and the lack of a viable cheaper alternative :grr:

    Arrived! :D

    I still can't stick a SIM in it yet (awaiting cutting tool to cut down my SIM to a micro-size), but very very pleased so far. The only bad point is the default camera app, which has some rubbish gesture controls to get to the options.

    Since losing my Bose IE in-ears, and establishing that, around here, these things now DOUBLED in price (~150GBP a pair), I had to chose between a-Jays four and Sennheiser MX300 II precision.

    I opted for the Sennheisers, and dislike the noise cancelling, and the sound is quite tinny compared to the Bose's.
    also the fit is nowhere near as comfy.

    Got mine as well. My only gripe so far is the branded screen cover. I like to leave the original on as I can't get an after market one to stick as well with no bubbles!

    I took scissors to my sim card, works like a charm despite me initially cutting the wrong corner off and putting it in upside down :D

    Loving the phone so far though, no dead pixels and no issues.
    There's a load of threads on XDA about issues that people are facing.

    I have found that it doesn't like my wireless all that much though. A speed test yesterday when sat 2 foot away from the router was 2MB/s. A later one was 30MB/s (I'm on infinity).

    5 cars?!?! Is that not somewhat excessive - even if you have 2.4 children? I guess you get the privaledge of paying for all of them :hehe:

    No such thing. The only criteria to stop you buying more cars are:
    a) Is the wife/girl likely to murder you?
    b) Is there room to keep them without the above?
