The unsolved mysteries of the rainforest are formless and seductive. They are like unnamed islands hidden in the blank spaces of old maps, like dark shapes glimpsed descending the far wall of a reef into an abyss. They draw us forward and stir strange apprehensions. The unknown and prodigious are drugs to the scientific imagination, stirring insatiable hunger with a single taste. In our heart, we hope we will never discover everything. We pray that there will always be a world like this one at whose edge I sat in darkness. The rainforest and its richness is one of the last repositories on Earth of that timeless dream.E.O.

Hey there. It’s me again doing amateur review on Windows Phone 8 on my Lumia 520.
A lot of people asked me why i chose Lumia 520 instead of High End Windows Phone, some of them even said “did you just fall and hit your head on the wall?”. It’s not the actual question they asked, it was more harsh than that. Well these are my reasons :
- I love mobile OS, like so much. But here’s the thing, i won’t spend 500 bucks over rookie OS. That’s what i did to my iPhone, i bought iTouch first, then i liked the OS so i bought the iPhone. That’s simple
- I have a Laptop with Windows 8 in it. And a Mac. So i thought it’s gonna be awesome to have Windows and Apple side by side.
- The phone was on sale
My first impression was this phone has a very “squared” UI. And all apps looks kinda the same, boring. Yep, that’s metro. Devs can’t do much with the UI. At first, it was hard for me to operating the phone since it has no notification center, if i wanted to read the newest tweet i can’t simply tap on the top of the screen. i have no idea what’s in the others section of my phone storage. And many others.
Aside of it, Windows Phone has a lot of potential features. Bing Vision is one of my favorite. I am a lazy law student, instead of scanning books from the library, which is completely wasting my precious time, i’ll just simply tap the camera app, switch to Bing vision, take a picture, and it’ll scanning the words, after that you can translate it or just copy-paste it to Office app. THIS IS INSANELY AWESOME.
I am not kind of person that rely on Third party app so much, like Instagram or Path (there’s no benefit of using path actually, except for people who liked to show off their foods, or new clothes, or holiday destination). So it’s not a big deal.
I am not talking about the phone itself because this is the OS that i am reviewing about. So, that’s a wrap folks. And for the record, i am still using my iPhone as primary phone. My fellow apple fan, don’t hate me
Ps. You don’t have to spend more than 200 bucks to have 5.0mp camera, lastest windows phone OS, super vivid screen and dual core processor/512mb RAM. Thanks to Nokia
Cowbird is a place for a deeper, longer-lasting kind of self-expression than you’re likely to find anywhere else on the Web. Special for storytellers!!
Cowbird is free, but if you want to activating some of cool feature, you have to be a citizen by paying $5/month. Another good thing is, Cowbird is AD-FREE!
Do you see the similarity?
…remember the ladies, and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the Husbands. Remember all Men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the Ladies we are determined to foment a Rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any Laws in which we have no voice, or RepresentationAbigail Adams, was the wife of John Adams, the second President of the United States and the mother of John Quincy Adams the sixth, and is seen as the first Second Lady of the United States and the second First Lady of the United States though the terms were not coined until after her death
