Legal Well. Raise your hands if you didn't see this one coming. Nobody is safe from Apple's and Microsoft's legal crusade against Android, not even Samsung, which supplies a lot of chips to Apple. Apple has sued Samsung for copying Cupertino's look and feel in various Samsung devices. This is about as surprising as the tides rolling in. Update: And Samsung's going to strike back. Hit 'm hard, Samsung. I don't like you anymore than any of these other patent trolls, but maybe we'll finally see it all crash and burn.

And it is actually uplifting not to be "reachable" all the time.


Indeed - it's that aspect that prevents me from getting a cell phone again. Well, that, and the ridiculous waste of money every month to be "available".

I did however have to get myself a watch, as i used to use the phone for that purpose before.


I got over that too... whenever the time matters to me, I'm either in the car, at home, or at my desk - all of which have a clock. If I'm wandering around in public, I can always ask someone for the time (which usually induces them to pull out their cell phone and check it).
