My fingers are too big for smart phones....


I thought so too but i was wrong.
You just need a good one.

Me too. I have a Samsung Note II. It has about the biggest screen out there that's still a phone and not a tablet.

One great thing about smart phones is that they can serve as mobile wifi hotspots for laptops, if your plan allows.

I have a Samsung Entro phone, just a basic phone, more than enough for Me, I can even check the bank balance on the fly and make calls from My car, but not when I'm driving, its quite liberating really.

Having the full internet with you is multiply more liberating.

My job requires that I keep my GPS on. Our project is spread out over about 12 square miles. In case you call in an emergency they want to be able to find you.

Well I'm around the internet enough as it is, I don't need to be online that much, but whatever floats yer boat.

I'm at the computer all day at work so it's a relief when I get home I can just listen to some music, paint or play some bass or guitar... Just to avoid an information overload:))

Nope, as My uncle said, it means, "yer on target". He was a pilot in WWII, a Warrant Officer in the USAAF, He flew P39's in the Pacific Theater.

I love to play the bass, so much rhythm and the sound goes so deep. On the other hand, with the guitar you have much more variety in what you can do. Sometimes I don't know if I wanna play the bass or the guitar, a real dilemma:) and the problem is, I only have one cable left that works properly...

I use the curly cables that don't kink! My little collection is a genuine Fender Strat, the Japanese model that is preferred for tone, a cheap Precision bass copy, and an Esquire copy from the early 60's. Also a spanish acoustic six string with gut strings. But since my many hand ops, the Bass is about the only thing I can knock anything out on these days. I have also got a genuine 1960's Selmer twin amp. I'll see if I can send you some pics.

But we are off topic on CCTV masts a bit!
