Ha, congrats on the IHOP!
We have one a few blocks from us, open 24hrs a day.
I usually stick with pancakes. Their omelettes aren't very good. Curious how they change their menu to accommodate the local tastes their.

Look at Jays Headset Control, that adds a tonne of functionality to the buttons. It won't make the volume buttons work, but it does loads of other stuff.

There's no inline mic button? Not sure if that would work then, sorry.

Yeah, have used the app. It's a little glitchy but does work. Would love to have a button that accesses Now.
Perhaps this one can do it?

Hoping that Google announces a Nexus 10 at this year's I/O conference that is mobile data capable, so I can take advantage of TMo's $30 unlimited 3G / 5GB HSPA+. Probably a pipe dream, but fingers are crossed.

I've just had an email from Orange telling me I'm due an upgrade. Not sure if I should upgrade with them or stick it for a couple of months, save some cash up and buy a phone outright...

What I usually do is upgrade to get the phone for free except for the nexus 4 that was an exception. Plus my wife gives me her free upgrade so I get 2 per year

I know... getting a free phone on upgrade is cheaper... the contract would be so much more though... if I bought a phone outright, I would be able to get a MUCH cheaper contract.

I was thinking of (maybe) getting the Nexus 4 (depending on what is out at the time I have the cash), as I could get unlimited texts/calls/interwebz for 21/month!

Well the nexus 4 will probably be the best unlocked phone for its price until the nexus 5 or possibly moto x phone. So you could have to wait a while but that plan does look tempting. All I can say is I would highly reccomend the nexus 4.

Yeah... probably gonna go for the Nexus 4.

Thinking of putting a bit o money aside for a 3-4 months and buying one. My contract is actually up in 1-2 months... then it's a SIM only deal that I'd go for... works out cheaper in the long run AND I get a Nexus, which is something I've been wanting for a while!

By that time, there should be a couple new phones out. You might be fortunate enough to see them drop the price on the N4.

I know... my plan is to see what's out at the time that my current contract runs out and make the decision then!

I know... just a little worried that I'd be a little late getting that model. I know that new phones come out quite often and that you will always face the issue but am just not sure if I've left it a little too long to get that model...
