Au contraire. If August doesn't exist it might be the only month the French... Well, let's not go there

First the FB, now a smart phone, the sky is falling for sure and Godzilla will destroy Tokyo!

Did this philosopher say anything about cheese ... or bacon?

!!!
I do not know.

His name was one that our school teachers told us not to say how it looks (in English) or we would demonstrate ourselves to be uncouth youths.

Would actually sound like the predecessor of one of the local, smaller, taxi companies here.

I got one of those just a couple weeks ago. The Galaxy S5. I think I felt a little Hocir dripping off of it.

Ah, my old S3 is still holding up - just. "Old" as in 2 years.

My 3+ year old K-5 has kept itself far better. By some sort of twisted logic I think the S5 would be the better with a few drops of hociR juice. Which might say more of the gnusmaS than anything else.

My old S3 died, which is why I had to upgrade.

My wife's gnusmaS Galaxy Note has been bugging recently ... she has put a new battery in it recently which didn't fix much. I tell her to empty the photos/films stocked in it. She plays those silly FB games on it all the time.

She got me (against my will, as b-day present) a Galaxy Note 2 when they came out. Works perfect, but its battery life is declining a bit now ... and kind of hate it for being too darned LARGE. C'est la vie ...

My gnusmaS ybguR is still going strong after 4 years. I refuse to give into the espylacopA eibmoZ and get a enohP tramS.

Nope, a simple flip phone that only makes phone calls will suit me just fine. Sure, it has a "camera". But at negative 20 megapixels I am better off without it.



If I need to get on the internet I have a laptop or a desktop computer, with a screen arge enough that I don't need a microscope to read it.

And when I want to make photographs I dig out the K5IIs, the K10D, the *istDL or the Cambo 4x5.

The livE hociR will not force me to buy a K3!

No way!

Make phone calls? Why would I want to do that?? That's sooo last century.

One picture says more than a thousand words anyway. Let the hociR speak for me, I say!!

Ah, same problem here, really. It's chugging along fine apart from that. If it starts getting unstable it's always possible to flash it with Cyanogenmod or something. But a dyeing battery is usually sufficient to demand a new phone from my employer - if I should wish it. The new phones are even bigger than what I have, though. IP67, sure, but the size of an aircraft carrier.

Then again, it would probably be the only 67 I will ever own
