    What do you want from the phone?
    Native Facebook/Twitter Integration with the phone (Like the ability to post photo's taken to facebook), A good web browser, Ability to theme the GUI, A good keyboard, Wide range of apps, etc.

    Pretty much iOS.

    A Lumia 710 would not be a bad choice. Sure, you can't really do much about the theme, but the selection of apps is pretty good, and the phone is fast, unlike many budget Android phones.

    I agree. I have the 800 and not the 710.

    If you prefer the native Facebook/Twitter integration over GUI theming, you really cannot go wrong with Windows Phone. Internet Explorer and the virtual keyboard on Windows Phone work well too, in my opinion, although I can't say I have experience on other phones.

    That, and if you're going to get Windows 8, you'll have most of the stuff synced too.

    Funny thing. I've been driving a lot today and every damn time I've got out the car I've got a zap off the door... and again when I have touched the handle of the door to the building where I work. ARGH.

    I don't know, but it's simply easy to typeon. When I got this phone I had used iPhone keyboards more, and it was still a better experience. I flick back and forth between Danish and English a lot, and that's where most my typos come from.

    The keyboard learns much better than other keyboards and the prediction and autocorrect is very generous (and usually correct.)

    Doesn't want to learn curse words though. I can't tell you how many times I've told my buddies "duck you :P"

    You'd only use a ramdrive for benchmarks? You crazy? I make daily use of RAM Drives, as small as they usually are (100 to 400MB)
    I might set one up for some frequently used games or something, but to be honest my RAID10 is so fast that I load games in like a second and BF3 maps load in 2-3 seconds.

    If everybody things I shouldnt get a blackberry, what should I get?
    The Nexus S is getting a bit old, though mine runs most apps just fine. It really depends, though you can get one new/good condition for about $250.

    I've just bought one, and it runs ICS excellently, a hell of a lot better than my ZTE Blade.
    It only seems to be slow in 3D games, but seriously angry birds is enough for me on the go.

    Was looking at a goverment site for avalibe summerjobs, Searching was nice and all but when i tried to click a job, all i got was a blank site with the background. Did the normal thing, Mashing F5 a few times, Went and tried in both Opera and FF (My normal browser is Chrome). No dice

    Then it strikes me, This IS the goverment sites. So i dust off my IE from it's recesses deep inside my HDD and lo and behold, Works like a charm

    Dammit, At least make it functional on FF or Chrome, Not IE alone

    You know what the only feature I miss from windows is? Being able to hit like Windows key+1-9 to open up programs pinned on the taskbar. Was so helpful when I didn't want to move my mouse.

    This is one of my main problems with Windows sometimes:

    (Replace Firefox with any program you'd like)

    If I say kill process, I fucking mean kill process, I don't want to reboot just because you're a piece of shit.

    Most of the time you'd go "Please self-terminate" on Linux as well tho before SIGKILLing
    difference is you can actually trigger a forcible kill yourself
