    Thank you. I traveled to southern Italy 2 years ago and besides the beauty of the country I can't believe how good the food, fruits, sweets, and coffees were. But I got to tell you the drivers on the road were scary crazy.

    The best coffee beans come from South America but the best coffee roast only can be tasted in Italy. The Italian roast here in the US is no comparison. Our Italian friend is spoiled with his coffee and foods in Italy.

    My pick didn't make the weekend. Anyone of these golfers in the field could win. But now the field has narrowed and Bubba has a great chance. The new rookie Jordan Spieth is in good position going into the weekend. And Adam Scott might have nerves of steal and pull off a win.

    Yes it's very clear. It's also a good idea to help a bad situation for the workers. It may not be what the union wants but it's a good alternative to just leaving all those workers out in the cold.

    We could break that trend to the up side very soon, a lot of plusses and very little negative.

    It also means that Nokia is not conceding to anything. It could go either way.

    Anyone own the Lumia 929?

    by robegratz Mar 22, 2014 11:17 AM

    Thanks zutko. Last night at a fund dinner I attended I was taking a pictures of a Harley that will be raffled off in August. Well while I was snapping pictures of the Harley with my 929 a gentleman to my left was amazed with the viewing screen of my phone, he said to me wow that bike looks amazing on your phone screen unfortunately I can't fit that bike on my phone screen. He was holding an older model iPhone. Like I said earlier this may be the perfect size smartphone. By the way the pictures I took came out amazing. I'm loving my 929.

  • I've had mine for a month and I'm curios if anyone has a review they could share.
    My personal experience with the 929 is that the phone is much better than my 928. it almost seems likes it's leaps and bounds better than the 928.
    The speed is incredible and lighting fast and the sound is outstanding best sounding phone I've ever heard. It also seems much smoother than the 928 in terms of OS running all my Apps.
    The display is even much better and that's saying a lot because the display on the 928 was already better than all other smartphones. The display on the 929 is very sharp best display of all Lumia phones.
    The 20 mega pixel camera is all I will ever need, it takes best pictures I've ever taken.
    And the 5" display is perfect, I really love the size it makes reading and writing a lot easier. Nokia used the display screen placement perfect to fit just inside of the beautiful metal frame. The 928 phone fits just inside the 929 with just a few millimeters of gap space all the way around, the 929 has in impressive 5" display size screen yet still small enough to fit into any of my pockets.
    Battery life is also better than the 928 I can get 7-12 hours or more out of battery depending how I use the phone. I don't need a tablet with this 929 on the road, this phone does it all extremely well.
    One last thing to add the OS seems to be much more seamless with Here Maps and all other Apps. I would put this phone up against any smartphone phone in the world and I wouldn't be surprised if the size and performance of 929 blows away all competition. I can only imagine how many of these smartphones Nokia could sell if they ran Android. If Microsoft is determined to continue with 929 type of quality they will survive and flourish in the device business they just need to get all the top Apps and that seems to be already taken place.

    Nokia will split the workload among Vietnam and China.

  • robegratz robegratz Mar 21, 2014 8:37 PM Flag

    It reminds me of when Nokia sold its headquarters in Finland and leased some of the space back. It seems to me that Blackberry may have a potential buyer or they are in talks of sale with another company. Maybe HP? or Dell? or a private company? , but those actions are made usually just before buyouts.
