Sidekick 2009 Camera

Sidekick 2009 with Hiptop Cat

Alright gang, we’ve got some Sidekick 2009 info for you. Here’s the details on the camera that we’ve been able to find out so far.
* It will take photos up to a resolution of 2038 x 1536, meaning 3.2 megapixels.
* There’s a flash, so those grainy shot-in-the-dark photos will be possible.
* There is a new auto-focus feature, so you shouldn’t have to use the jewelry loupe/magnifying glass trick to get up close shots of things.
* Video recording sounds like it’s set to 15 frames per second for now. But might be possible for 30fps.
* You will be able to upload directly to MySpace, Photobucket, and YouTube
* It will support geotagging

All pretty much straight-forward information. For those that don’t know what geotagging is, it means that you can embed location information in the photos you take. So if you take a photo at your friends house and then upload it to a site that supports the geotagging info, it’ll show up on a map at the location you took it. This uses the GPS that’s coming in the Sidekick 2009. It’s all pretty good info, and about what we’d expect from a Sidekick camera.

    What a tease you guys are. Give us more! Give us a date to mark on our SK calender. It must have something to to with the my faves update. Please tell us it will be out next month.

  2. admin Says:

    Unfortunately the MyFaves “update” has nothing to do with the 2009. The MyFaves interface is actually already on everyone’s Sidekick, it’s just hidden because you don’t have the MyFaves rate plan. Usually when you sign up for this plan they send a “secret SMS” that you can’t see to the device which enables the MyFaves interface. No need for an OTA or anything.

    As far as dates, we’re guessing (total guess) around April/May. But don’t have anything to back it up significantly so we’re not going on record with that guess. :)

  3. Crazyforkicks Says:

    Nice, I can wait for April. Let’s hope this kick caters to the geeks!

    Finally, more new SK blade news. Thank you.

    No word on if the video frame size will be bigger?

  6. meme Says:

    Yeah, the video resolution is so bad on the LX. Lol. All it’s embarassing when people try and watch videos on my LX because it’s so small.

    you people can’t think for a minute and figure out how you might use a magnifying glass as a lens to get close up shots? Come on it’s not rocket science. You are probably the same people that downloaded “terminal monkey” thinking that it was a game.

    yeah, I flippin understand that a magnifying glass might help, but what’s a jewelry loupe? Plus, even if its a simple trick, I’ve still never heard of it. Is it really THAT idiotic to ask about it? …and btw, your face is a terminal monkey!::shakes fist::

    A jewelry loupe is a magnifying glass they wear around their neck to inspect stones.

    Another reason why the geeks need to take back the sidekick.

    Kicks are for geeks, not for gangsters ( wanna be gangsters that is) And certainly not for 11 year olds!

    I hope this OS is very complicated!

    what’s with the animosity? You guys act like talking on a message board is the worst thing in the world. Why would I google something when we’re already talking about it here? WTF is the point of having comments if you don’t talk?

    What is worse? Asking questions that could have been answered on google? Or being a total ****!? Also, I AM a geek, not a gangster(or a wannabe), and I’m 29.

    The Grammy’s tour starts in april and it is sponsored by Sidekick!

    Will you guys use your brains?

    is this the stereotype that sidekick’s have? Stupid users?

    I agree with BCDrizzo WE WANT MORE PICS!!!!!

    Some of you are true morons.

    Some people are so self conscious of themselves that they have to talk **** about others over the internet. That’s a ***** move…crazyforkicks, what realy is a gangster to you? The italian mafia are gangsters and I don’t see them with sidekicks.

  25. crazyforkicks Says:

    Come one bro, You know who I’m talking about, The Ghetto thugs that wear their pants down there a$$, the type that can’t form a straight sentence but know every tupac song by heart. I’m sick of sidekicks being marketed to that demographic!

    Do you see any G1’s being marketed to the G-unit nation?

    NO!

    Does Blackberry make a SnoopDog phone, so the black youth can buy it?

    No!

    Does Iphone make a special Alex Rodriguez edition phone to appease the Latino Population?

    The biggest mistake Tmo did was create phones like Dwayde Wade, Juicy Couture, and Tony Hawk (which looks like a kids phone)

    Bring it back to the geeks!!! and the tech savy people!

    What about the 5mpx camera that was supposed to be coming out in aug and was supposed to be in the newest sk? Hmm…?

  28. GreekPharoah Says:

    crazyforkicks, you’re a poor excuse for a geek since any geek understands and appreciates the gammatical difference between
    there/they’re and your/you’re. Please Google the differences and use them. The hip top is for everyone. Even pretentious d-bags like you. :D

  29. crazyforkicks Says:

    Take your own advice and learn how to spell “gammatical” its grammatical.

    people make mistakes, just like your parents made the mistake of having a greek pharaoh, which is impossible, because pharoah is an Egyptian King. And Greece is not in Egypt.

    Google pharaoh Biotch!!!!

    Oh yeah and you spelled pharaoh wrong.. its aoh not oah.

  30. GreekPharoah Says:

    lol accidentally leaving out the “r” in grammatical is better than not understanding the difference between a verb and an adverb.

    And not that its any of your business but I’m ethnically both Greek and Egyptian. Its also an ode to Alexander the Great. He was a Greek man who conqured the known world, including Egypt and was made a pharaoh. My avatar is MEANT to be a play on words and was also intended to be mispelled when I made it years ago.

    However the point is, you need to loosen up dude. Its not that serious. We’re all here for the same thing.

    I know there’s a grammy tour, they posted about it earlier, but that’s not what you said. Grammys=/=grammy tour.
    If they had had it out by the actual grammys and advertised it with commercials for all of America to see, yeah it would have helped, but with only a limited amount of people at a venue, it’s not gonna help much, and that’s why I thought you meant the show and not the tour.

  35. Setnakt Says:

    I’m Egyptian linage myself but there are no Pharaohs here, not been any anywhere for quite some time. Still it’s nice to be able to comment HERE freely and not be “infracted” by appleass on his fan club anti-news board of gimps for censorship.

    what is the deal with the sidekick?? i beel lovin the kick since the sk2 and its been the truth but why cant i get a bigger video playback screen? why do i have to hack my way into getting youtube vids on my phone? why is play back so sloppy?? why do i have to have a camera phone that has a terrible camera? come on danger! get with the program. the customers want more! it was a good idea to make us want more and then slap us all with a ota that made the kick exciting again but now this ****?? why are developers spending all their time making apps for g1 and iphones?? if we cant get that then at least open up the gates and make us open source. we can take care or ourselves. i cant write code but i know people that would love to write for the sidekick but they wont bother because it doesnt go anywhere after the program is written. its just a really good idea to think about the end user experience on a massive acale. all the young kids and all the loyal sidekickers that are older but remail loyal to the kick will leave because its not keeping up. we all saw this with the lx but we supported it anyway but this is getting out of hand. im not going to keep pouring my money into a sidekick just to say that i have one anymore. to hell with that. if this next sidekick is not up to par then im leaving tmobile all together and getting an i phone with a dual touch point screen and apps galore. the thing has a map that responds to the movement of the phone. if i tip it up it gives me an upwards view. come on danger. you have that big microsoft backing now. im expecting this to be very very successful or very bad.

    I would gladly take 15fps if it meant having video larger than a postage stamp. ::crosses fingers:: But still, I love the sidekick. I’d rather keep the sweet OS that I know and love than a bunch of apps that I’ll get bored with in a week. Danger ftw.

    To Gizmo, I get video playback full screen on my LX, I’m not sure what Sidekick your on or what your doing wrong, but must be something. Or are you asking for hologram-projection playback (LARGER than full screen) or something like that &/or equally ridiculious (and totaly impossiable, lol!)?

    As far as I’m concerend the LX was/is a good phone, then again I didn’t upgrade from a 3, I did so from a 2. Some of us don’t *need* a new data device every other month (or every year even), maybe you should get some patience to equal all that $ you must be wasting and you wouldn’t be so “disappointed” , I sure wasn’t with going from the SK² to the SK LX.

    Finally, it’s nice to know your willing to give your money to help support a company that is helping undermine the US Constitution by violating the 4th Admendment through illegal domestic spying. I hope you don’t record any nude pics/videos of your girlfriend/boyfriend, on your new shittious iPhone, and if you do you don’t mind everyone in the AT&T spy rooms sharing that all with each-other and their friend for a nice laugh (it’s been doccumentated they have done this as they view ALL their customers as “terrorists”). Nothing like supporting traitors with your “reward” being a crappy phone and treatment as a terrorist. But if that’s your thing and your that shallow, then good, GO. And good riddince, don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Enjoy your phone, and your soon to be new “terrorist” status and 100% lack of privacy with your new palls.

    Setnakt, you’re ridiculous, AT&T is not in any way shape or form “undermining” the 4th amendment. And while we’re on the subject, to my knowledge, none of the large cellphone companies do this. Now, what people do with taking pictures and recording videos and spying has NOTHING to do with the carrier that the phone is used on so, it doesn’t jutify you bashing this guy for wanting an iPhone if Sidekicks stop meeting his demands. It doesn’t make him “shallow”. Hell, if I leave to an iPhone tommorow, I don’t give a flip what anyone has to say about it. So what ? I HAVE TO stick with a phone that doesn’t do what I want JUST so I don’t look shallow ? Sorry,but you’re full of yourself bro. Use better reasoning in your arguments next time.

  59. Mike M. Says:

    @ Jer

    Yeah, it does that to me too ! haha. I also agree with you, the Sidekick needs to come back to the power users like us, I wish it wasn’t aimed at that demographic that includes gangsters and less intelligent people. But at the end of the day, business is business and I suppose T-Mobile does what they have to do to make the most money, and in their right there’s nothing wrong with that. After all, their targeted audience is the kind that is easily wowed by flashing lights, a swivel “flip” screen, and being able to have what everyone else has. That probably has a lotttt to do with why most of the features on this phone are fairly so basic for the most part, because the majority of the user base doesn’t really feel the need to keep up with all the new tech like some of us do.

    haha another day, another dollar ;]

  60. gizmo Says:

    im a lx user and lover. i support the danger company. what i am asking for is the phone company i have veen using for so many years is to keep up with the time and maybe if you had a bettet job you could afford to get every new sidekick that comes out. i dont argue with people that make less money than me. its a waste of time so im going to offer advice instead. get a gob and quit lettong your parents buy all of your toys. when i play a recorded vid on my kick its small just like everyone elses kick. i would like danger to change that. im sure others can agree with me on that.

    [Setnakt continues]
    So the only question now is, where exactly do you get your “news”? FOX I’m guessing? LOL! Next time you open your big mouth, you might want to check around some to make sure your not so totally full of sh*t as your were here and now and don’t end up sticking your foot in it that mouth like you just did. Now who’s “ridiculous”?

    [Mike M. Said]
    And while we’re on the subject, to my knowledge, none of the large cellphone companies do this.

    [Setnakt says]
    WRONG AGAIN genius! See above, you were just (what’s the term?) “powed” I think it’s spelt by the kids. I never make any claims I can’t prove, as Scarface said, “Jou just learnt a HARD lesson mang” (lol).

    [Mike M. Said]
    Now, what people do with taking pictures and recording videos and spying has NOTHING to do with the carrier that the phone is used on so,

    [Setnakt says]
    And your still wrong. Or GOOD LUCK trying to debunk the info I just posted PROVING EVERY SINGLE WORD I SAID. So DEAL with it.

    [Mike M. Said]
    it doesn’t jutify you bashing this guy for wanting an iPhone if Sidekicks stop meeting his demands.

    [Setnakt says]
    His “demands” on a freaking phone justify supporting treason but my outrage at his (and your) shallowness and stupidity don’t “jutify” (which is supposed to mean “justify” I’m guessing) my “bashing” him huh? What does? Supporting what criminal act does finally justify a well deserved bashing? Kidnapping? Murder maybe? Or do two iPhone maybe excuse those also?

    [Mike M. Said]
    It doesn’t make him “shallow”.

    [Setnakt says]
    Maybe not by your or Paris Hilton’s “standards” (same difference apparently).

    Hell, if I leave to an iPhone tommorow, I don’t give a flip what anyone has to say about it.

    [Setnakt says]
    And that last part is the only thing you’ve said yet I believe. Of course you wouldn’t care. You would sell out your country for a lousy PHONE, so why would you care what another human being who your helping take their rights away from thinks? Dirty deeds are done dirt cheaper than ever today it seems!

    [Mike M. Said]
    So what ? I HAVE TO stick with a phone that doesn’t do what I want JUST so I don’t look shallow ?

    So your seriously telling me that the only~the ONLY two choices for a (data) phone are a Sidekick or a freaking AT&T traitor-iPhone?!? Never hear of a Blackberry Storm or any of the dozens of other data phones in existence? Do I seriously need to also prove to the board (who I’m sure already knows) that there are more than two data phones avaliable, more than two carriers, and that you could possibly be more of a shallow ignorant idiot?

    [Mike M. Said]
    Sorry,but you’re full of yourself bro. Use better reasoning in your arguments next time.

    [Setnakt says]
    I used the FACTS dumbass, and I just backed them up with undeniable proof positive. “Reasoning”? You better look that word up, it’s clearly a concept your incapable of! And quit calling me “bro” my real brothers aren’t ignorant, shallow mucks who think supporting/promoting criminal activity on a Federal level is ok (no, not even for a freaking PHONE!~ Judas got 30 pieces of silver at least).

    im a lx user and lover. i support the danger company. what i am asking for is the phone company i have veen using for so many years is to keep up with the time and maybe if you had a bettet job you could afford to get every new sidekick that comes out.

    [Setnakt says]
    Time to knock down jackass moron traitor-for-a-freaking-phone #2 I guess. Hey jackass I’m a Stock Trader Manager for a little company called Duke Energy (Google it). And I HIGHLY doubt a worm like you makes more than me. But keep on dreaming little boy. The difference in you and I (besides you support treason and are a moron) is I’m not an idiot who likes to waste money and resources in some goal to buy and burn as much as I can as a brain-dead consumerist who doesn’t care about the future and all that junk going into the landfills. I got kids and care about the future, not just whatever I can grab for me, me, ME right now, now, NOW, like there is never going to be a tomorrow (or I just don’t care like you). If it’s not broke or truly needing an update I don’t *need* to throw it in the garbage for the next newest fad like Paris Hilton-wannabe shallow you.

    [gizmo Said]
    i dont argue with people that make less money than me. its a waste of time so im going to offer advice instead. get a gob and quit lettong your parents buy all of your toys.

    [Setnakt says]
    Geez your a real fuckwad. My mother died 11 years ago in a nursing home in her 80’s, my father died in Egypt in a car bomb 6 years ago. I’m 41 years old and have lived on my own since I was 17. I have 3 homes of my own, including one in Cairo. My son is 21 in Harvard Law School and has been since he was 16. You know knowing about me, my family, my life, or my “toys” little BOY. You have less brain cells, less money, less education, and less of everything that matters in the world than me, you are in NO place to give me, or I dare say anyone here, any “advice”. But I’ll give you 2 pieces of advice punk, #1 learn some English. It’s my 2nd language yet my spelling is still vastly superior than yours. #2 join the military, maybe they can find a man in the little BOY you clearly are. Probably not. Then again if were all lucky you’ll step on a landmine. The world has more than enough ego-maniacal idiots like you anyhow, and there is a population problem, so do us all a favor and check-out! Your taking up space and wasting good air.

    [Idiot says]
    when i play a recorded vid on my kick its small just like everyone elses kick.

    [Setnakt says]
    That’s because your an idiot and can’t figure out basic electronics. I would offer help, but you’ve insulted me and my family, shown disregard for the nation I love over a stupid PHONE, and demonstrated not even the basic reading/writing skills of a chimp, so it would be pointless to explain anything technical to such an assclown as you have proven to be.

    [More from idiot]
    i would like danger to change that. im sure others can agree with me on that.

    [Setnakt says]
    The video works, you just got to know how to work it. It’s poor quality true, but full screen IS AVALIABLE and better things are on the way. If you would (could) have read the other articles here you would know that, but then again look who (what) I’m talking to (at). It’s just a phone not a laptop, what the hell are you expecting, Star Wars blasters? Your hopeless and worthless. Good luck smuck. *I* am done wasting time on YOU and your “bro” cut from the same cloth of phoney son’s of bit*h’s. Tell your mom I’ll come by and say “hi” again tomorrow.

    Tmonews.com just reinforced my belief that the new SK will be out for the Grammy’s tour.

    Expect it to be revealed by Late april, Early May.

    If the sidekick is sponsoring this tour, there has to be a new model out.
    As it would make no sense what so ever to market last years 2008 model.

    Get your cash ready fellas! Bring it back to the Geeks!!!!!!!

    As for all you Tupac wannabees, please stop buying sidekicks. Your giving it a bad name.

  64. gizmo Says:

    Setnakt, im sure that a hard working old man like yourself would understand why i dont think people like yourself should be allow to reproduce and im terribly sorry to hear that your parents would rather kill themselves off than spend anymore time with you. i said before that i wont argue with you because i dont believe that you make more money than i do, and it really goes against my little rule, but you, sir, are an idiot. its a cell phone. i want a sidekick that will do the things that i want it to do. i have already made enough modifications to the one that i own. i can afford to do it because it is a small expense for my own comfort. if you made as much money than you could afford to put your kids through school and buy yourself a new toy whenever you felt like it. you can continue to throw insults. i am done now. you can feel like you have won something. it means nothing to me. im sure this little internet “argument” has some how confirmed or validated something for you and all of your shortcomings in life. i dont care about your life story or your kids. i just want a new toy. im going to give my old one to a friend or someone that truly needs it. thats the way it works. if you actually had something to give than you would understand why i like to buy things to give away. if that makes me shalllow than…. im done. your stupid, sir. shut your old @$$ up and get a life.

  65. Setnakt Says:

    Hey “gizmo” the day when a little wastral mall rat punk makes more than a Stock Traider Manager is the day pigs fly (or maybe I should say the day you fly piggy). We both know you have nothing to offer the human species except insult to those who don’t have a worthless fluff job like you yourself will also soon be without as the economy worsens. Those who are on hard times but are just “lazy” according to you. Tell that to the masses when they riot in your mall and gut your little yuppy bit*h overprivlidged ***. Mommy and daddy won’t be able to save you when that day comes, and your toys won’t matter. This has been brewing for decades, it is coming. And I can’t wait to see worthless subhuman vermin like you get exactly what you deserve. Somehow I think people will still be in need of power plants and my job will be secure while you rot in the street homeless starveing or buried under it. Play while you can in your delusions punk. And hide behind your keyboard in your mommas basement. If you and I were to ever meet in the real world it would be the last day you drew breath, and we both know it, so whatever you puke here is just your cowardace. Your vermin “good” for nothing but helping to further destroy the planet in your ignorant greed. Your a virus the earth and it’s worthwhile real people are soon to rid ourselves of. And you can believe it, if not watch the news and watch your little life crumble as I laugh at your demise fool.

  72. Setnakt Says:

    Hey 915rko, that’s cool you want to buy everything that comes out Sidekick-wise. But you got a problem if other people don’t? If it’s your right to throw down $ every few months for a new phone (and I agree it is), isn’t it my right to maybe save my money because of the recession (and because I’m not into wasting resources ether) instead and just buy when I actually need and want a new phone? And yea I got the bucks, I don’t waste that’s why, and I’m not a sucker ether, helps also. Not wasting sh*t not blowing off the future matters to me. Phones? Not so much. I got different prioritys. But I agree with you SKs rule, if your getting the new one more power to ya, I haven’t decided yet, but I sure will never be toting any Arod iPhone, that’s for DAM* sure! I just don’t appreciate when some people (not saying you) all front on how much $ they (DON’T) got and they probably don’t even have a job, sure can’t name one. And they pretend if you don’t buy everything you must not have any $, plus they got no honor and care more about an arod iphone (love that term!) than loyalty (to anything). That’s my point. And April sounds good to me, got a birthday then (my daughter’s) coming up. And I don’t mind “wasteing” $ on her even if I don’t get one for myself.

    Peace, (from the “old” bad motherfuc*er)

The rest of us want to get back to Sidekicks but you just can’t quit running your mouth huh PUNK? Go back upstairs and fu*k your sister some more, maybe she has time for your BS.

    you two are crazy, your accomplishing nothing. The novelty has worn off. This is why humanity will never have peace.

    Just relax and wait for this sidekick.

    it’s probably going to suck anyway.
    I bet you the battery life is so piss-poor, you will have to get 3 spares and a desktop charger to last the day while using 3G and GPS.

    I used the android for 10 days and i was so happy to return it to tmobile, and reactivate my kick. At the most I got 5 hours of battery life with GPS off!

    A couple of days ago my SK LX showed that my email inbox was “147%” full, and I was still getting more emails in, I’ve never seen that happen before. So I’m wondering if we will (finally?) be seeing a larger inbox? 6MB +47% would be 8.8MB or so. So maybe a 10MB or more inbox coming?

  79. crazyforkicks Says:

    I hear ya, My Lx, and my wife’s slide have been acting a little funny lately too.

    I’m sure upper-echelon developers have live versions of the new handset for beta testing! So I’m not suprised if the 3G danger backend is already operational and in service.

    You gotta admit, the backend is the best feature on the sidekick. Its great to have everything saved, backed up, and available online.

    I’m getting excited, this is a big step for SK’s.
    There must be some changes to the UI, or they would have given us a jump screen shot.

    What do you guys think could be awaiting us.

    Let’s think positive!
    I know one thing that would make people happy.

    The ability to make an MP3 a ringtone.

    we need the ablity to make mp3’s ringtones!! everyone else has it but the sidekick. maybe there are changes to the U.I, microsoft does have a hand in it now so maybe ther added some last minute adjustments to the U.I. i heard there will be a zune player on it. thats not a bad move. its the rival to iTunes, isnt it??

    “Gizmo” everytime you attack me I WILL counter-attack your lieing lame *** back, so deal with it dirtbag. “Prove”?

And nice try so late in the game pretending you have a job in an office(!) especially with spelling like you have, LOL. Everytime people here ask us both to shut up on this, this is how you reply, with total disrespect to the entire board, with more attacks that I MUST reply to, to shut your *** down~AGAIN.

    Please drop me an email if you guys are having trouble with the site. It might be something fixable.

    Thanks!

    hey back again, jus to say why I buy a phone whenever I want. I switched to geico!!!!!! lol not!!! just wanted to try the touchscreen and all the cool stuff out there but in the end, sidekick is the right one. email, music, web, camera, text like crazy. its pretty much what a college student needs when you don’t have a lot of access to a pc. plus being a dad is hard, detailing cars, and now washing dishes most of the day, great way to k.I.t. I just sell my old phones to make my money back and I’m pretty sure that the sk lx 09 is a phone I’m keeping for more than 6 months. again, sk’s rule!!!! nice to end in good terms sketnat a.k.a old bad motherfu*ker

    Mike M. Dude, I prove EVVERY SINGLE THING YOU SAID WAS TOTAL 100% BULLSH*T EVERYTHING. You FAIL. How do I “fail” by proving EVERYTHING and I do mean EVERYTHING you said was a LIE? So you “fail” now by being right? Kiss my a*s motherfuc*er, your not even man enought to admit you were 1000% in error (no typo). Your a dishonorable trator a piece of sub-human dog sh*t. You LOSE as you provided not one single shread of proof anthing I said was untrue or anything you said was true. What part of you *** being handed to yu do you not get PUNK? I’m supprised you even showed yourself here again given how I wiped the floor with your ***. *****!

  87. Mike M. Says:

    hahahahahahahahahaha if you think you’re better then me and you supposedly wiped the floor my *** then you’re dead wrong. It’s funny how you can’t tell by now that I realllyyyy don’t give a **** ! :] you can go on all day you motherfucking ****, I honestly don’t care. none of this **** offends me at all. the harder you keep trying, which by now is quite evident, the more amusing it gets ! hahaha keep it up ****** ;]

    Yal dudes is tripping hard. Lol. This is America……..if they want to buy an Iphone…….they can & if they want to buy another Sidekick……they can if they want. I say this because at the end of the day, everyone is paying their own bills anyways, so why argue????? It was kind of funny to begin with but it has gotten out of hand. I’m pretty sure GROWN MEN cursing each other out over a PHONE is real mature. Lol.

    Anyways, I’m hoping that the new kick is truly an upgrade. I’m also hoping that they have a few surprises in for us (new features that aren’t specified yet)…..

  89. Setnakt Says:

    Steve-o, it’s kinda funny when your talking about *choice* and this being *America*, yet the *choice” of supporting the products of treasonious telecom like AT&T will only help them take away all our choices. So how does that make it an “American way” deal to help destroy America? I don’t see how that works. Did you check the links I posted? ANY of them?? Apparently not. That or you got some WEIRD ideas of “logic” or “patriotism”. Hint, the latter is NOT about “me me me, first, last and only, screw everyone else and America, I’m a ‘patriot’ give me my toy”. I don’t think so.

    And Mike you are a dishonorable punk coward, KNOW THAT! Your diareah of the mouth means nothing except your indeed a child not a man whatsoever. You claimed I was wrong, yet I proved 100% otherwise, and your innital responce was I “spent so much time”? So now it’s “wrong” to be “too right”? You don’t make sense whatever it’s pathatic, and even more so that your so much a punk you can’t admit when you were wrong. Screaming ilke a 3-year old does nothing to debunk a single piece of evidence I presented, it just shows your an irrational raving lunatic. “Ahh, fu*k motherfu*ker errr, dam*t, fu*k, grrr, I’m wright, you wrong cause I say so, help MOMMY”… that’s your *counter”? Like I said PATHATIC.
