Ha ha, good one! The lads in the office had a chuckle over that one. Please re-submit your complete tax records for the period between 2004-2009, using the enclosed directions.

Re: Nice

@Eddy Ito

Verizon is very happy to rip out copper and install fiber in our area. My previously affordable $25.00 month Verizon DSL(copper) internet connection was replaced by the 'cheapest available' $65.00 month Verizon FIOS internet connection. And my only choices were Comcast or Verizon [shot or stabbed].

Re: Really in the post KitKat World.... (Or the shape of things to come?)

@MichaelHaber

Sorry you're having problems. I currently own a Samsung S5 Mini (on Verizon) KitKat 4.4.2 not rooted. Have moved apps, downloaded from PlayStore, onto my 8GB microSD. Also loaded 6GB of music from my PC onto the SD card. You can pull the end off the power charging cable to reveal a USB 2 connector. Plug that into the PC(Windows 7) and transfer files directly to the SD card. Cheers!

Spies would need SUPER POWERS to tap undersea cables

re: Trevor

For NZ <--> US, they probably would do exactly that. For EU <--> Africa? Probably not. I feasibility and likelihood of cable taps would - to me at least - depend on which cables we're talking about.

Quote from leading experts on data transfer

"Oh, yeah, an African swallow maybe, but not a EU swallow, that's my point."

Mobile data plan exceeded - thanks for auto play turned on.

Mr Z, When you receive my *fake* bomb in the mail, just open it and press the button labelled "auto play off". Hope your relatives enjoy the irony.

Why did China get picked?

Why does China get all the love? ..."found that levels of air pollution in large Indian cities increased at some of the fastest rates in the world between 2002 and 2010—faster even than rapidly-growing Chinese cities."

Use skins

Don't like how it looks? then stop bitching and change it. Too lazy? then download a popular design done by someone else. There is no need to force upon the users how it should look.

Think outside the box

Place a swimsuit attired person in a reclining lawn chair. The neighbor will mow the grass for free.
