OgreMagi: traylor: OgreMagi: traylor: vásárlás" (that last word means 'buying' in Hungarian, you know because I live in Hungary)

A simple rule of thumb about the Hungarian language. Why use one syllable when eight work just as well.

/was married to a Hungarian

Good. Here's an other rule: a word with eight syllables in Hungarian makes a six word sentence in English.

I never could pronounce köszönöm. On the other hand, I had no problem with lófasz.


Step 1: Go to Google Translate.
Step 2: Type in the word "cheese" several times. As a bonus, add "trees" in there a few times.
Step 3: Translate into Hungarian.
Step 4: Click listen.

fun for the whole family.

/Tracfone, ftw. It talks, it texts, bluetooth, music, wifi, surf the web & etc., all for 200 bucks a year.

As God is my witness, in a previous job with a place that sold phones, I've had more than one Tracfone customer try to exchange the phone because they couldn't get a dial tone. They were usually very very old.

david_gaithersburg: puffy999: Bisu: It'd be nice if they did that with their search engine.

Their news feed, too... at this point, all I can say is that I honestly believe Fox News is paying Google for placement.

.
There are only four or so news organizations left in the U.S., WSJ, Fox, Al Jazeera, and Breitbart. The rest are just government propaganda outlets.


Hell, I like you. I'd even let you come over and f*ck my sister.

He meant run DMCA


Seriously though, I'm amazed anyone buys a phone or uses a post-paid contract plan from any of the major carriers anymore.


Like the network but don't like the company? Use an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator).


Buy an un-locked GSM phone from ebay and a SIM card from straight talk (AT&T's network). Or, buy a Verizon branded phone with a clear ESN and activate it on PagePlus (Verizon's network). Unlimited everything for $45-$55/Mo. no contract. Use the same network without all it's restrictions.

Bisu: They're not really "subsidized" in the way most people think of the word, either. You're paying $40-50 more a month for 24 months vs the same carrier's prepaid plan. It's more of a "payment plan with obscene interest rates" than a subsidy, since you end up paying around a thousand dollars more for the phone.


The weirdest thing is some providers that provide 2-year contracts for bring-your-own-device plans. I always wonder who falls for that... it's the worst of both worlds.
