“Love, it’s a funny thing.. At times it’s painful, infuriating and confusing. You wonder why you get into it, put yourself in such a vulnerable position… And think, “why am I compelled to this? Why am I willingly putting myself through this torture.. Then, you realise, that the rest of the time… It is the most beautiful thing you have ever seen or felt… It’s prettier than a thousand sunrises, than a million starry nights… And nothing can ever come close to how you feel when you love and are loved in return.. That is the greatest thing a human can achieve, not the Nobel peace prize, not a phd in astrophysics … Not an oscar… But love.. Love is in fact… Our purpose in life.. And once we achieve it.. We hold on with everything we got.. And no amount of pain, hardship or obstacles can ever make us let go.. Such power has love..”—Teague Gray
As the fan whizzes round, turn by turn
One thing in my mind is persistent
This home we call life seems all fun and games
But the troubles we come across make us resistant…
Resistant to the pain, the blood shed and tears
All the sadness we’ve endured these years,
Not only do they make us so hard and bold,
They leave us resentful, bitter and so cold
I remember when I first got hurt, I was 13 years old
She said she’d go out with me but in a week it all changed
I was left with a confusion, an inadequate need
To find out why it wasn’t meant to be…
Then I grew stronger thinking this is my life
And what I make of it,
And I shouldn’t feel weak or accept things For the sake of it.
See in life we make decisions and we choose our own path,
We don’t have to feel broken no one deserves that,
Just make sure you know that life is for the living
Cos something inside you is born every time there’s a killing,
Of anything you’ve had or anything you’ve known,
You’ll never be the same because you would always have grown
Sometimes I think of you, 24/7 I miss you,
I can’t begin to say how much I wish you,
Were here, like a brother to me you were,
Watching the flame of your life in our hearts still flicker,
I guess we have decisions to make,
And you made yours,
But I’ll never realize why, I’ll just have to accept it…
This world seems so cold my brother … since you left it…
why Lumia 900 you ask? is it the gorgeous OS, the seemless elegant design? the extremely practical functionality? or the fantastic hardware by arguably the greatest phone manufacturer in history? yes on all counts.. Its just everything I need and more. Nokia is back with a bang.. and its all coz they got rid of that terrible rash known as Symbian / Meego.. thank god for some sense being finally knocked into the skull of Nokia to give us this sexual masterpiece.
Ive used iOS for 3 years before switching to WP mango last november.. Ive also had a go at Android, let me tell you nothing is as pretty and as practical as WP Mango. I iz in love.
Earlier today, Charlie Kindel, a former Windows Phone GM, posted some thoughts on why Windows Phone hasn’t taken off. Essentially, he blames Microsoft’s model pressuring both OEMs and carriers — so much so that neither really wants to push the platform.
Perhaps not surprisingly, I largely agree with his criticisms of Android. He believes Google’s platform has completely laid down for both the OEMs and the carriers to the detriment of the users (hence, the fragmentation we continue to see). This has allowed Android to flourish with regard to market share, but he thinks it won’t last forever because eventually the consumers will revolt, just as they did against Windows Mobile.
Where I don’t agree with him is that Windows Phone is the correct model. I like the model a lot more than Android’s, and I like the OS a lot. But I don’t like the OEM strategy. And I hate the timing.
