    That dress store is gonna get someone killed. They discount their prices on wedding dresses so drastically that women just can't or won't ignore them. I can't even imagine what that store must be like on that day.

    Honestly, I can't think of anything. I'm still pondering the question, tho. Must be something. I feel left out. :blackeye:

    No, he's not. He goes to hang out with fans and share the experience.

    Yeah, I've seen stories about that sale. Women who don't even have a bf go to buy a dress. That's nuts.

    I sincerely hope that AT&T's network service is better in CA than it is here in NJ. My wife has a 5S that her company gives her and she has AT&T while my son and I have Verizon. AT&T's service is really bad here compared to Verizon's. We make the comparisons quite often.

    A lot of people I know tried to get there and failed. My brother made it. Got stoned and completely blasted on LSD for the whole time. Needless to say, he doesn't remember much of it.

    By far, the craziest thing you could experience, if you had the nerve to go. Hundreds of nearly insane women piling on each other trying to rip wedding dresses from each other's hands.

    And he truly doesn't care about the money either. He'd be worth even more if he didn't give away so many shares to other employees.

    It is one I'll always remember, but I wouldn't say 'enjoy' with all the damn mud that was around.

    For those who think it is "about the experience" and not the product... I can't really buy that... because IF you ask most people in those midnight lines if they like waiting in line, most will say no. They don't like waiting in lines for everything.

    These exact same people complain about lines at the airport due to increased security... IF people like the "experience" and "community" then why don't they make the best of the airline security lines and talk to the people in the line about shared interests and experiences?

    Yeah, it all depends on where you live. Down here AT&T is better but where my sister lived in Atlanta, AT&T's home, was the worst I've seen AT&T.

    Because you're pretty much not allowed to talk in an airport line anymore...

    California is comparable.

    I have to chuckle. All three of our kids' families are AT&T customers. At home in the Bay Area, two of them can't get a signal. One doesn't get a signal at work, either. They couldn't get a signal at our home, of course. The youngest who lives in D.C. received from AT&T for free one of those "mini-towers" that connects to the internet because he couldn't get a signal at his apartment. When he moved to another apartment, he didn't need it there so he brought it here so that all are visitors could use their "tiny tablets with a phone app", as I call smart phones.

    Our Verizon iPhone gets a signal at everyone's home, though only two bars at our house.

    AT&T in Southern California is pretty good in most areas. I have one neighbor that travels, she has AT&T her husband has Verizon. They see to have service just about everywhere, one or the other at least. She doesn't have any problems around town either.

    I've never had a problem getting a signal. I've never lost a call. I don't really like Verizon's way of doing business and don't like the way their stores let the salesforce lie blatantly to folks just to make a sale. But, I can't find fault with Verizon's coverage. Apparently, AT&T's coverage in Europe is good, my wife just called me from Holland on her AT&T iPhone and it was clear as a bell.

    What I've done with Verizon is talk on the phone with sales reps and have them send me emails. The promises disappear from the equation. And recently they put on their web site a map for 4g level coverage which shows me having 4G service. Yeah, sure. We do have 3G, but I wouldn't want to rely on it. Still, if we have the great earthquake and the ATT land line goes down but the Verizon tower system is up until the batteries go dead, I could maybe make a phone call, maybe.
