Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I just ordered an "S3 Quad Band Quad Cards Analog TV FM QWERTY keyboard Cell Phone"

I fully expect it to be one step above utter rubbish. But it can use four sim cards simultaneously, so I figured, for 40 bucks, why the hell not? It better than carrying around three work and my private mobile. Gonna run three works sim cards and my UK number in the S3 and my private number in my Galaxy. Huh, finally got my bloody sim cards sorted.

At some point, I'll probably end up getting at least a dual-card phone. I've been able to stave off needing the functionality a little longer, but I fear I may need it eventually. It's a shame that they don't seem to attract proper development in the same way that single-card phones do, but I suppose it makes sense in terms of how the maker/operator market is currently structured.

The thing is that the entire development revolves around piracy. I mean, there are copies of copies that are copies of copies. Its horrible. As long as nobody is willing to fund actual development, and not just software and hardware piracy, these phones aren't going anywhere. They'll just be copied with cheaper and cheaper parts until they either explode, or can be given away for free. I've had a number of Chinese phones over the years. Their quality have dropped to a level that I'd rather carry around two Nokia 1616's taped together with double sided tape.

I'm giving this phone a chance and then i'm gonna boycott these things.

Picked up a great winter-white cabled pullover sweater at Coldwater Creek. With the gift card I had and the clearance sale, I got a $60 dollar item for $13. Score!

Yeah, the dire quality and general shadiness is what's put me off.

A bottle of Santal Noble eau de toilette, from Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier.

Very nice. I'm looking forward to wearing it tomorrow.

Series 2 DVD of Sherlock. My computer's DVD player plays all regions, and I don't want to wait for the U.S. DVD!

Also ordered the "I AM SHER LOCKED" tee.

^^^ I also ordered Sherlock today but I won't get it for a few days as it has to come from the UK.

I paid the balance off my furniture today. All the furniture, which I ordered back in November but which the store didn't have in stock, finally arrived at the store except for the queen size bed. I was told that they are haviing trouble getting the bed I want, so I agreed to take the one from the showroom floor for $150 off the price. The furniture will be delivered on Friday. All together I will be getting

Very large wardrobe.

Queen size bed with 2 matching bedside table and a matching dresser.

Queen size mattress

Four bookcases with glass doors.

Grand total (including the double recliner sofa that was delivered a few weeks ago) - $4250.
