@henry Blimey, it's luxury in comparison. I have done the fast train to Beijing.....I have also done the 49 hour journey on the slow train to/from Lhasa 3 times! Does this mean when I escape Korea I can buy you a beer?
@nevin This is a valid point. My UK bank wanted me to verify who I was on my phone before I could use their iPhone App. As I don't have a UK number I gave them my sisters number and she sent me an iMessage with the auth code!
@nevin Also I had a friend here who told me their phone was faulty and they would buy a new one. We have now disappeared because their Kakao was associated by phone number and not ID. I don't know their new number!
@nevin A phone number does not associate with the real me because phone numbers get re-used, hence the problem of false recommended friends. You should be assigned an ID and the phone should just be used for verfication.
@nevin I only switched because I thought it made sense! I have been using Kakao for 3 years. The problem was my Korean number was used by somebody before and I started getting hundreds (literally) of recommended friends. Sadly none were hot women! ;)
@nevin Yes, this is the problem. When I switched back to China Phone No, Kakao would not allow me to associate my old ID with it for 72 hours. So now my old ID and a new ID is valid. But after 72 hours the new ID will not be valid but the old one will!
@nevin As far as I know the new Retina MBP is black and glossy. I may change strategy and get a Mac Mini to use with Cinema display at home and a MB Air for on the road. It's probably cheaper than the MBP I would want!
@nevin Mine is Mid 2010. So you have a black bezel around your screen? I have a silver bezel and I quite like it. I am very reluctant to upgrade but witht he logic board slowly dying on me I maybe forced to. :(
