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...

Good point. You're right. But as others have said, Siri is pretty much useless so I guess I didn't think of it in that way....
| Tech Board|| re: Cortana, better than siri? - SlackMaster on 8/24/14 at 7:21 am|
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...
