| Political Talk|| re: In your mind what will Republicans do if they take the senate on these issues? - SlackMaster on 10/19/14 at 7:06 pm|
I agree with this. The current bunch of R leaders are no better than the democrats -- they only want power and will say anything to get it. But, there are no principles behind it so nothing will get done. Pretty sad really....

There is plenty of stupidity going around and all parties are to blame. The state worked hard to get BR General on a contract but the General's leadership couldn't see the forest for the trees (this has long been the case with multiple leaders in the organization).
So, the state contracted wit...

From what I hear, Cortana is incredible and blows Siri away. But the only Verizon phone with the latest Windows Phone release is the HTC One M8 (or something like that). The other phones will get it as an upgrade but it hasn't happened yet.
PS. I'm sure Apple will upgrade Siri before long. Whi...

True. I shouldn't have confused the issue. Unlike Apple, I can't seem to find any options for a cracked screen and Amazon isn't much help at all. They just want me to purchase a slightly discounted refurb ($300). They suck and I wish we had just sprung for an Apple.
Anyway, if anyone knows wh...
