May 12 Word of the Day
When someone goes to the gym and spends 90% of the time on their phones scrolling through social media
Looks like its thumb day again for Jimmy with his usual routing... 3 sets of 5 snapchat selfies and 10 sets of scrolling through facebook until exhaustion

Utter nonsense.

A golden cell phone. What crap! My plastic Kyocera looks better than that for cheap. Go buy a Blackberry instead.
Boy: "Dude, what is that?"
Girl: "It's a Vertu."
Boy: "Utter Vertu!"

Vertu is a subsidiary of Nokia that specializes in tough, luxury phones. Vertu phones are polar opposites to their mass market counterparts.

Vertu phones don't come laden with the latest features and gimmicks, in fact, they are positively antiquated when compared to a cheap 3G phone.

What Vertu concentrates on instead is building a quality instrument that lasts decades.
I use my Nokia N70 for work, but I save the Vertu Ascent for special occasions.
