I reluctantly upgraded from a Q10 to a Z30 2 or 3 years back.
Boy was I impressed with that virtual keyboard. It knew practically every time what my next word was going to be.
Swype on android is a poor replacement; if only BB would release that keyboard for vanilla android.
I also have a white 2007 Macbook, still going strong.
I upgraded the RAM to 4 GB, replaced the battery and swapped in an SSD. Each upgrade / repair took at most 10 minutes.
Lots of built in obsolescence on the OS / app front as well though. Still running the fine Snow Leopard 10.6 on the Macbook but most new apps won't run on that.
My newer Mac Mini running Mountain Lion won't allow me to upgrade to the latest Logic Pro X unless I upgrade to the allegedly flaky Mavericks (as Yosemite is no longer available).
I am a bit fed up with Apple.
On the app front he should finish what RIM/BB started (allowing Android apps to more-or-less run on BB10) and pay the devs of key apps (like WhatsApp) to ensure that the Android versions work properly on a Blackberry.
I'm thinking of defecting to Android so that I can use the likes of RedPhone & TextSecure from my mobe ..
The worrying feature of this treaty (discussed in the link) is that it gives American corporations the ability to sue democratic countries for, for example, not allowing their mining exploits on environmental grounds.

"According to the report, Google will start producing tablets once the $12.5bn acquisition of Motorola Mobility Holdings is cleared by the Chinese authorities - the deal has been approved in the US sand Europe."
I'm not saying I'm fully aware of the commercial details but I reckon that's the first time I've seen reference to a deal approved by the US and EU but waiting for approval by China.
This guy was going to drag the UK government through the courts to stop the ban - this was reported on R4 about 2 months ago. WAnyone know what happened to this?
His arguments were ROTM (right on the mark). Basically that the UK govs assessment was OTT and that they should justify it to the EU. Did they?
