Got QC15s a few weeks ago. I was listening up them, and the 300$ beats next to each other, and the difference was unbelievable

I'm on my 3rd blackberry. I can imagine not having a physical keyboard; I hate touch screen typing.

That's all I used it for and while it wasn't as bad as people made it out to be, the internet was terrible on it. The browser was just flat out awful.

I loved the setup of the BlackBerry menus though.

That's how I felt before I got my iPhone. Touch screen keyboard and autocorrect (has it's good moments and bad ones) annoy me but I've gotten used to it. Still prefer a physical keyboard though, a lot quicker to type on.

Yeah, exactly. My hands are too big to comfortably type on the Iphone, and since I don't bother with apps at all (I deleted all the apps of my Ipod Touch to make more space for music) I much prefer the physical keyboard.

It was convient since I was studying in Europe last year too. My parents both have blackberries so using bbm was cheaper than international texting (unlimited data was 5 pounds a month) and easier than having to how them how to use whatsapp or something like that on another platform.

For those who don't like touchscreen keyboards, did you ever try Swype?

Best invention ever.

Fixed it for you.

Have you seen the clip where he absolutely rips Philly a new *******. They were booing other performers the whole night, so he got up there at the end and gave a 12 minute rant, insulting Philadelphia and all of the people there. Taught Philly a lesson.

Anyone who has an iPhone, and hasn't done this yet: Jailbreak it. Best decision you can make with an Apple device.

Yeah, be careful though. You don't want to mess up your IPhone completely, but if you do it right, it makes the phone 10x better. My friend was showing me his, and it was pretty cool.

If I ever go on that hike of the Appalachian trail I have my bucket list, i'll need to get one of those dang smart phones.

I don't think 30 year olds should feel old and out of date in this day and age.

thanks haha and yeah I think that ones up there too. I still have never been there, my cousin goes to Temple so I might end up visiting her there. Only reason why I want to go there is so I can go to DiNicks for that cheesesteak that was on Man vs. Food

Yeah. I was afraid of it screwing it up, but absinthe 2.0 worked great. Just don't take it to AT&T or the Apple store.

Do you wanna do the whole trail?

The App. trail is beautiful, but i've only done part of the New York trail.

I do, but the amount of time and money it would take is going to make it tough. Maybe a few years down the line but it would take better than 3 months to trek 2200 miles.

I'm an Android guy as well, never have bought an Apple product, never will. If it was me looking to get a new Android phone, at this point, I'd go with a Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Nexus.

I like swipe for tablet but use swiftkey on my phone.

As for Android/Windows vs. Apple, I think this picture sums it up best:

Yeah, I couldn't fathom doing the whole thing at this point. I've done part of the NY trail and part of it in Maryland. It's awesome stuff.
