TP Tantrums

My TP(office notebook) have been giving me a really hard time. It has been throwing tantrums and corrupting most of the files that I have painstakingly worked on. Then it decided to take it up a notch by blinking. Feeling frustrated that it always hangs and having my files corrupted, I had to call the Helpdesk. The Helpdesk helped me lodge a ticket and I was told to wait for a call from IT.

A person from IT then called and I was instructed to bring it up to them. I was then greeted by this uncle who was supposed to assist me. Upon seeing me, he asked me:

Uncle: Are you from China?

Me: No.

Uncle: Your name is unusual.

I get this all the time. This is not the first time I have been asked about my nationality. I recalled when I went for the interview, the security lady at the reception asked me whether I'm Korean.

Anyway, back to the story. So I related my issues to the IT uncle. His response was:

Uncle: Show me how it blinks.

Me: (Thinks to self, how am I to demonstrate how the computer blinks when it doesn't?)

So I told him I can't. And his response was:

Uncle: Next time when it blinks, take a photo and show me.

Me: (sweat)

Samsung Galaxy S II or Iphone 5?

I'm caught in a dilemma. Should I get the Samsung Galaxy S II or wait for the Iphone 5? Have been scouting for a phone for quite some time now, but I have yet to decide which to get. Those phones that come with a less hefty price tag either has this or that but those that have the entire "package" comes with a hefty price tag. What should I do? Should I just get the Galaxy S II now or should I wait half a year for the iPhone 5?
