    WIHA facebook and people who live on it. Last night for example, a girl I know posts “goodnight”. Nothing else, only that! And 3 people “liked” it! WTF? This morning, she posted “goodmorning” and 2 people “liked” it! These are the kind of post we want to encourage?

    I stopped following one friend because she posted everytime her son hugged her, each time she cooked, and “getting ready for work”. And these stupid post got dozens of likes. This is what people want to read about?

    Ok fine. Here is my post for this morning “good morning! I just farted!”

    New cel phones. Why aren’t any perfect??? 

    I hate changing cell phones.  It is like giving up on an old friend.  But I realize that with changes in technology, my use of the phone improves and more tasks become easier to accomplish.

    That is, if I can get over the pain of finding a new phone.

    I’ve been a Nokia (Symbian) fan now for 10 years.  Before that I was a die-hard Motorola user.  I didn’t want to change away from Nokia – but they have changed away from me shifting to a poorly designed Windows operating system (my wife has the Lumia and I dislike it with a passion).

    Even with the last few Nokia’s running Symbian, Nokia appears to have given up and conceded the lead to everyone else.  To say their latest phones are a disappointment is an understatement.

    But Nokia has certain things that Nokia users do not want to give up.  PROFILES for example … and menu/settings layouts.

    So recently I thought I had found the perfect phone.  It was GSM.  It had dual-sim (dual-standby!).  Txt messages could be enlarged with a finger gesture.  (Well, not THAT finger gesture).  It ran android … I don’t know if it ran Ice cream sandwich, or gingerbread or nuts n honey … but I was able to find a few widgets/apps that could mimic what I was losing in the switch from Nokia.

    My friend owned the phone.  He liked it.  Showed it to me.  Told me it was quad band.

    Before buying, I figured I had better check the internet specs.  NOT QUAD BAND.  :(    There goes another perfect phone.  I can’t tell you how many I have reviewed only to be disappointed.

    My needs are …

    1. GSM – *QUAD* BAND!!!
    2. Dual Sim – Dual Standby
    3. Each sim must be capable of completely different ring/no-ring profiles independent of each other.
    4. I want a widget on the home screen for each sim to control ring/vibrate/silent(off)
    5. I need a widget to be able to blacklist certain callers and texters.
    6. 4″ screen or so with a good layout keyboard on screen for fat fingers.

    Didn’t think my needs were that difficult.  But try and find something.
