    No new Windows Phone flagship until second half of 2015

    I have to wait until the end of October before I can upgrade to a Windows phone. If I could upgrade today I would go with the Lumia 1520. I'm hoping AT&T has a larger selection to choose from when I'm ready to upgrade.

    Firefox 34 Launches With Yahoo As Its Default Search Engin

    Darn! I was hoping that the next update to Firefox would fix the printing problem in 10. Firefox still prints blank pages in Win 10. It still works good in 8, so all is not lost.

    Power button nearly broken - HELP?

    Your friend should either contact the store where they bought it or Lenovo to see about getting it fixed under the warranty. If they don't want to get it fixed under warranty why worry about voiding the warranty?
