Vintage has been awol, ah that was some story  !!  Probably the first time we interacted na!

I love sports except golf and American football, i am pretty much down for anything. 

@Good call on house of cards, you would enjoy the Underwood couple!

 I personally as a end user find whatsapp better than BBM or Viber. The typing interface is better. The keyboard can rotate with the rotating phone screen as opposed to BBM and Viber. With us thick fingered people its a bigger advantage.
Also whatsapp is free for initial two yrs and then its a min 89cts per yr. I find that a nominal price
I don't use twitter or fb messenger .
I do not use my phone number for account verification for these two either.
For me, whatsapp is relatively secure way of txting people.

I have tons of friends, family who do not tweet or rarely come online to FB, they use whatsapp.
Also whatsapp works and updates when background data is off, when internet speed is 2g or less, FB and twitter do not load so easily.
In all its a easier communications app.
I do not find the stat that it was more users than twitter to be surprising tbh.

@Genie & Zephy - based on the draw, I have it 100% pat right till the semis. I'm pretty sure of it.

 

Brazil is a very talented team, with lots of skill and flair. They are the favorites, but I think Germany will edge Brazil. Germany performs well as a tight unit. Most predictors are actually giving Brazil 80% odds of winning. But I just have a wild feeling it's a German year.

 

Argentina and Spain are more evenly matched. Argentina are the favorites because of Messi, and I'm going with that for this one. Although Spain has an equal chance of upsetting Argentina.

 

I may have to take back Argentina winning because I think they have a good chance of choking and underperforming in finals.

T-  I know few friends who would kill me for not using whatsapp now, but I get the advantages, will probably be back on it soon. But i am more of skype and fb person . I prefer not having my work contacts on them though , thats a separate phone.
But yeah whatsapp is great otherwise. It basically destroyed BBM.  It  will have more users logged in 24/7 than on twitter. 



Nooo Hadey, Not for Messi. He is gifted and all that jazz but noway they perform well as a team. Chokers. Messi has never performed in high profile matches. bet you are barca fan.

 Germany is always  the team to beat. Spain has been a consistent performer and I seriously feel they have it in them to win in back to back. Brazil has scolari back as their coach , i love that man , so I pray and hope he wins them this cup. Somehow they make a WC win more special .

There was a point in time when BB used to charge its users 5 pounds a month for BBM 'data services' which included BBM. People were more than willing to pay it then, so I think even if FB decide to hike the one-off price of WhatsApp, there would still be demand for the app given the wide range of users. WhatsApp also barely uses any data at all, unless you foolishly have your settings on to download all media automatically! I barely use FB messenger too. I find that if someone is trying to organise an event, they just create a WhatsApp group as it allows its users to have up to 20/30 contacts in a group I think?

Viber really needs to work on the quality of their service. I don't have Skype but I think it's easier to operate Viber in comparison. - No ID/login required but there's a delay in response particularly with international calls. They've started offering non-data linked international calls at a price but they're in direct competition with firms like Vectone, Lebara and Lyca Mobile where it costs 1p a minute to call India. (not sure what it's like where you guys are but it actually costs me more to call my neighbour than it would to make a phone to India!)
