But you get paid to go to work. Whereas you pay to go to school.

that lumia does sound intriguing, but when they say that theres a lack of apps, what exactly do they mean by that? The apps I use are pretty much just games for the train. The one thing I do want on my next phone is a solid camera. I was hoping that the Samsung Galaxy Camera was going to have phone capabilities, but it doesn't, which kind of sucks cause that would have been cool (for me anyhow).

It's my first day today and the only thing on my mind is the Giants/Cowboys game.

I just started my first year of law school, after taking a year off to work.

So weird to be going back to school.

The Apps that exist in the Apple Store and Google Play aren't necessarily "portable" to the Windows platform. Most of them would have to be re-created specifically for Windows 8 Phone. So if the development community doesn't start building apps for W8P, you won't be able to add too many to your phone.

Good Idea: Replacing your damaged gym floor.

Bad Idea: Replacing your damaged gym floor in September.

Obviously the G37 tops that list, but is way out of the price range of some of the others. Your best bang for the buck and car there decently priced is the Altima and Legacy.
I agree on the G37x obviously.

My gf likes the Rogue, but when I sat in the Escape I was impressed. It is rated VERY well EVERY year as well. I am not going to get a Fiesta or something like that but from everything I have read the Escape is tops in its class (which includes the Rav4, CR-V, Rogue, etc.).

I really like the new Altima, probably stick with the 4-cylinder as it gets 38 mpg highway even though I want the 6.

Probably looking at this as my future winter car. Still have my eyes on a 370z in the near future.

The Legacy was fairly impressive actually with the AWD and 31mpg highway.

I work at Walmart. Worst job ever, except for the occasional Ranger fan that comes in, and then we talk about the team a bit. Pay is decent though for a job like that.

No, that I knew. What I meant to have said was more like; will the games I normally download (amazon free app of the day) be available. Things like uniwar, golf frontier, words with friends, etc.

Boyler: the escape makes the most logistical sense even though I'm not a ford person. The escape has been improving every year and it's one that they've reinvented continuously. It's gotten to be quite the all arounder.

I worked retail once. It was the ****tyest four months of employment ever.

If any of you can I recommend a job at a check cashing store. I worked at one for two years in college. They paid me $10 an hour (1998) and bought lunch everyday. That was some fun work.

I didn't want to do it forever though.

The check cashing place near me gets robbed probably once or twice a month
