PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "For a seventh consecutive month, the Samsung Galaxy S III is the most popular smartphone in the United Kingdom. The data compiled by uSwitch is based on live searches, pre-orders, as well as postpaid sales. Curiously, Apple's current smartphone flagship is not even second. The iPhone 5 is outperformed by its predecessor, whose lower price and improved contract offers helped it remain appealing. The Samsung Galaxy S II completes the quartet at the top. The rest of the top ten smartphones is entirely an Android party. It includes the Google Nexus 4, who entered the rankings a solid fifth. The second half of the top ten includes the Samsung Galaxy Ace, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Sony Xperia U, HTC One X, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2." This is getting ridiculous, and it's not good for the market. For the love of Fiona, people, buy something that's not Android. I don't want to live in an Android-dominated smartphone world.

Kids have all these gadgets these days, while I spend a lot of time waiting for the computer to load my game from cassette.

A-HA! So you did use cassettes, not everybody had floppy drives at your place after all! ;P (what we discussed in Amiga page2 news from few months ago, IIRC)

I started with cassettes, like most people, and after a while we all had diskettes. I still have Raid over Moscow on tape!

BTW you replied to me twice recently just before the deadline, leaving me no time to reply back! Not trying to be rude and ignore you!

I don't think I've ever felt your non-replies to be rude or such, especially when I post late. After all, what we're doing here are just some fleeting comments on the internet; a drop in the ocean.

Anyway, I don't think anybody will mind (or even notice) if, say, you would reply here ;) (to those http://www.osnews.com/thread?543967 two http://www.osnews.com/thread?544407 posts, I guess)
