    Dammit, I was gonna post that - but I thought Dotty would whine... which he would if I'd said it. Serves me right for actually being nice for a change. Bastard, Ringy.

    You get a gold star!!
    I'm impressed and a bit surprised you noticed my slight slip of the finger. Good job! :thup:
    Tomorrow we'll work on the difference between to and too.

    Sweat shops/slave labor produce a great deal of consumer products.
    It is the result of a consumer base that demands cheap over everything else.

    Dot Com look, I have had a Smart Phone for some time now, and it's an iPhone 4, and depending on who you ask, some would say I wasn't to smart to get that!! That said a lot depends on what you do with it. If you use a phone just to talk, and text, maybe spending all that money for a data plan is a little overkill for what you really need. If you use email, surf the web, and as my daughter points out, one of those who likes to hang out at Starbucks and look cool with the latest (this is optional). Then a smartphone might be for you.
