At least my internet company admitted they had equipment fail that needed to be replaced.

Okay day.

Early evening, you say? Close enough then, to say g'night.

So . . . g'night!

Sunspots can mess up OTA broadcasts, but they really shouldn't mess up cable. Then again, I'm not really doing my emag homework so...

The only fries better than McD's fries were McD's fries when they used lard. Speaking of which, there's more reports coming out that lard is better for you than vegetable and canola oil. What a surprise!

Hi. Lard? When I was very young we visited a friend of my mothers and they put lard in everything and on everything. It literally made me sick, so they kindly accommodated the issue by leaving it off of what they gave me

There's no better pie crust in the world than one made with lard. I don't know about putting it ON anything.

and 7 years from now, i bet other reports will emerge saying veg/canola oil is better for you than lard.

this is just like the stupid egg thing. we'll never really know if eggs are good for us or bad for us.

i bet it's 'cause politicians are in bed with Big Egg.

Are an android and a smartphone the same thing?

Okay, change the question. A smartphone can have an android OS, right? Can they have other kinds of operating systems?

No1 and D'name:
I'm going to have to get a smartphone before too long. I think at some point not too far away it's going to become a necessity, just like my PC is currently. Black Friday might be a good time. I also have to find out if there are such things as lessons for said phone because I sure as heck will never figure it out for myself.

Smartphone describes any phone that does more than just make phone calls. They can browse the internet, take pictures/videos, do email, run applications, etc.

Hubby insist we both get one.
All I need out of the house is the camera function and google. That and the phone and text message.

I'm glad the iphone 5 is a mess. Hubby won't want it.

Right now I want something pretty basic. I want to be able to look up phone numbers, scan QR codes (yes, I had to look the name up), the app for checking prices, maybe pictures. I figure they all have the picture-taking ability. Maybe a GPS.

I want to upgrade. Still have iPhone 3GS. Not thrilled with what I'm hearing about the 5. May look at android. It'll be spring most likely though.

No question, I absutely have to get the Kindle Paperwhite. As long as all I'm going to be using it for is reading, is there any reason to get the 3G?

We have an i-phone(Mrs. Ice's) and an Android in the household.
If you want to pay out the @ss for older technology then I would suggest an over-rated i-phone. Androids are less expensive and offer all the features you described.You can usually get a usable android for next to nothing with a data plan. Just my opinion. Some carriers offer free how-to classes on smartphone use. I know Verizon does.They are really easier to use than your pc.
For the record Mrs. Ice is very happy with her i-phone 4S so I guess it is a matter of preference.

In the end only kindness matters

You'd want 3G if you travel a lot and want to be able to download books when you can't get access to the Internet via wireless connection such as your router or other public Wi-Fi spot.

Good morning everybody! Hubby bought a Hertz grandfather clock at Goodwill yesterday. It was probably sold to a member of the military stationed in Germany in the 1970's. I has nice Westminster chimes. Hubby had to play with it for a couple of hours to get it to run. It has lost 5 minutes so he will have to adjust the pendulum. I should have taken a picture of us driving home in our little Kia Rio with a 6 ft. tall grandfather clock!

edit: Poof I bought a used Droid X phone and have been playing with it on our wifi. I haven't activated it yet. I really like it. It is pretty intuitive. It is easier to use and has a better display than my Dell tablet. I am thinking about using Straight talk or something like that rather than renewing my Verizon contract.
