    ?? Have a massive lossless collection on my PC and i am very hard pressed to notice any differences between that and the 320kbps music from spotify. obviously make sure you activate the premium sound quality and then disable the "equal volume" feature on spotify, sound quality improved dramatically when i disabled that. The convenient layout, MASSIVE music collection, and offline abilities of Spotify make it absolutely invaluable IMO.

    By law, you are required to turn on your headlights if it's raining in Sweden.

    How the hell am I supposed to know if it's raining in Sweden?

    320k is pretty good, you generally need a good audio system and fussy ears to notice the difference with lossless. The diferences are there but subtle.

    Most people only seem to use lower quality with spotify (192k maybe? Or is it even lower) which is ok for background music when you aren't listening closely or in a car with road noise etc, but can sound a bit artificial.

    Get a phone from China. They are unlocked so you can run any sim you want, two cards in some. None of this "you can only use our sim card in this phone" bullshit which everyone seems to accept here.

    If itís not locked to spark then any phone that works with spark will work with skinny as itís the same network. Am also with skinny and find it great. Card is hooked up to flick over the money just before plan renewal each month so can just forget about it. Not having stores is a downside as you donít get to hand over your phone and say fix it but the one time Iíve used there call centre they were great and talked through the solution step by step. Also spark shops donít want anything to do with skinny phones as itís not part of the service.

    I forgot to mention that we are all(wife, three kids and me) hooked up to Viber as well. Can talk, text, video call and send pictures anywhere around the world for free as long as you have Internet and data.
    Doesn't cost anything to hook up with, so I have trouble understanding how Viber survives.
