Stamp out homophorbia

I believe in Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve. But times change, and I, for one, am happy if some bouffanted nancy boy wants to sniff your hair whilst limply dragging a chair in high heels. Just don't ram it down my throat.

I repair phones in my spare time to make some pocket money, so I can fix it myself if need be.

Re: The title is no longer required

My Xperia Z1 was a mistake right from the start, even the screen looks terrible compared to my old Galaxy S2. I also must be the only person who prefers Touchwiz over stock Android. An OS update a few months back has only made everything worse. I will never own another Sony product again, that much is true for sure.

I, for one, am holding out for the Galaxy S7, which I will be buying outright for the first time, thus eliminating the last piece of Sony from my life. I will get the cheapest SIM only deal and that will be me off the contract treadmill forever. There is no longer a need to upgrade a phone every two years, this one is gonna be a keeper. Can't fucking wait.

Re: Pah you have nothing to fear!

Sorry, but as a pedant it is my duty to inform you that the aforementioned creepy grin originated in the director's cut of Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Apologises to all those involved.
