I have watched the original so many times!
I feel compelled to watch it again now :)
This remake is not bad if you forget about the original, otherwise it seems to me it often goes a bit over the top.

At last we meet :)  

Although I used to love and have big watches, I haven't worn a watch at all for years now, so I'm scared of scratching or banging it.
Should I use a screen protector? Any recommendations?
+Ian Rawlings, how are you getting on with yours?

Another question: is there any way to remove the apps I don't want on the watch?
I briefly tried the adb method with debug over bluetooth with one app but it didn't work.

Photography people, what do you think of this as a learning camera for a complete beginner?

Any other suggestion around that price?

Big and bulky and a dinosaur. You will very quickly lean that DSLR is too big to be carried , and when you want pictures, it's not with you.

I say pay a bit more, get something that's ALOT better quality and smaller.

The Sony A5100 would be a very very good choice.

http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Sony-A5100-versus-Canon-EOS-1200D___967_940

Much better DXO score, same price, smaller and easier to use.

If you have some headway on budget, it's more expensive cousin the A6000 is top dog, beating cameras from Canon and Nikon at 2-3x the price. Nikon and Canon are at sea, lost. They have no answer for the full frame and APS-C cameras from Sony that are so much better in every regard.

Live and let live.
Introduction
I am a Mother, Android Fan, Car Nut, Translator and why not a bit Geek :)

I was born in Argentina many moons ago and have lived in England since end of 2000.
I'm very curious about everything and enjoy learning new things, most often by trial and error  (especially techie and car stuff).

The most important things in my life are my family (cat included) my friends and my FTO.

My hobbies are going to the gym, not only to feel better physically, but mentally; my car, which has gained me an extended family in the FTOOC; and tinkering with my Nexus phones & tablet (actually, I started with a Motorola V600 - yes, I'm that old!)

I don't follow people "en masse". I check profiles when I can before adding someone to see if we have any common interest. 
If you want me to follow you back quicker, best way is to interact with me (I shouldn't need to say this but I will) politely and with respect.

I am a professional translator, Yes, I do it  for a living. 
I graduated in Argentina and have been working freelance ever since. This goes very well with learning new things because of the variety of subjects I need to deal with. I really do learn a lot while translating and love it!
Please follow my GC Translations page for anything work related and I'll probably follow you back. 
This, though, is my personal profile, WORK FREE ZONE, and I will only follow you back if we're related in some way other than work.
I don't want to do a break from work to come here and read more about work :D

Anyway, enough about me. Let's hear about you :)
Bragging rights
Even though I'm a lady, I do my own modding and hacking about on my Android phones, my computers and my car. Done some drag racing and track days on my FTO and can even change the Power Steering belt :p.
