I know ! It’s like Windows 8 week here at Knightwise.com, but you know when I go and investigate something new for you guys and girls.. I dive deep. A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to get a hold of a Nokia Lumia 920. Its a pretty impressive phone. Well built, fast, and also substantially heavy. The kicker came when it was lying down on the table (screen off) and I noticed a similarity between this black 920 and a line from 2001 a Space Odyssey.
