To the OP - coming in a bit late - but I feel your pain. My first few days with the iPod-"sometimes I will work"- Touch and a new MacBook pro were frustrating. Service has ranged from abysmal to moderately above average (any given day), the stability has been great, and the integration and management of photos, music etc has been absolutely crap imho. iTunes might be a great tool for Apple to make money. However, if your wonderfully helpful Apple 'guru' sync's your iPod...
Thank you for the list - I'm heading to HK a bit later in the year.
Be prepared as mentioned by Milhouse - good advice. Have I dated a girl with some issues? Yes. Did we care about eachother and have some wonderful times together? Yes. Would I date another girl like her? No.

I know it will make Porsche purists cringe, and rock crawlers may laugh, but watch one wade through some deep sand (on track oriented Pirellis no less)...

Also, the Nokia 8800 - older solid piano black as opposed to the carbon are also pretty solid looking phones. Both are a little older (going on two years) and pretty pricey. I'm not a fan, but I have to admit that the new LG Prada II is also a pretty well executed piece of kit. For...

If you are fortunate enough to live on the west coast, Hawaii, or a major city with a Chinatown, some pretty authentic food can be found, I think.

You can find authentic cuisine but most of the Chinese or Thai that I have tried in the US has been mildly or heavily westernized. I rank PF Changs among the worst offenders. They took what was one of the most efficient and healthy forms of cooking in China (preparing food in a wok) and completely stuffed it... the amount of rubish they wrap food in stuns my friends from Asia.

Yes - they provide great quality and cover a wide range of pricepoints and styles. They may not have the flash marketing or prestige, but if you want to keep track of time around under all sorts of conditions, you could do far worse.
