The S4 will not be announced at CES next week; indications are that it'll be announced in April. Then, there will be a delay before the carriers in the US will actually make it available to us (the S3 was delayed several months in the US compared to the UK).

Based on that, the S3 will have a little more life in it.

Color choices are usually mandated by the carrier. AT&T has exclusive access to the red color for a while, for example; but I think other carriers are now getting it.

16GB vs. 32GB: I'm surprised the 32GB is available. Early indications were that no carrier in the US wanted to carry the 32GB, and Samsung was making noises about never actually manufacturing 32GB models. You can stick a 32GB SDHC card in the phone to bump up the memory, but the built-in memory and the additional memory will never act as a single memory space (BTW, I have seen indications that you can actually stick in a 64BG SDXC card and have it work, but I haven't tried that).



So June until I get my hands on an S4. Booooo. I can wait though, I'm in no real hurry.

Yes well, is it wrong if it brought me joy to inadvertantly bait you into logging in?

My AmEx was compromised about two months ago from some airline in Brazil. I did use it on the duty free on the Delta flight from Spain, but that was in August! That is the only charge though so they figure it was just some numeric goofup.

Ready to collapse after a really nice party with the choir people. Those who showed up, had a really nice time. Oh, it got worse: our choir director & his fiancée had to bail--his furnace died! We sent some leftovers home with the single folks and kept a few meals for ourselves and donated the rest to our local home for runaway boys. They will eat well!

This is kind of a sad reality:

One bottle of wine a day is 365 bottles a year. If your life expectancy is another thirty years, there are only 10,000-odd bottles ahead of you.

You are counting wrong. For most of us, retirement is probably more like 30 years than life expectancy. Regardless, 2 bottles of wine per day is 20,000 odd bottles in 30 years. So, really, just figure out how many wines you want to have (and it doesn't have to mean the whole bottle, does it? though if it's just litres you care about...) and work it out. Heck, each wine.woot tasting has 15-40 bottles in a single event!

Assuming I have another 30 years above turf, and I'd be quit happy with that by the way, current stores allow for slightly over 81 bottles/year; slightly over 1.5/week.

Buy more, or live less?
'cause that just isn't enough per week.

My rule is that I only have enough on hand for 1 years consumption of 1.5 bottles per week. Helps keep the spending in check.

That would assume you stopped buying completely, which we all know won't happen.
