I hate 2 things in my life and my opinion about them will never change:
1) Apple
2) When I take a poop and water splashes back on my a$$.

I've just seen the UK update on Samsung Kies and luckily enough my phone didn't have enough juice to run the update. I'm tempted to not bother, not that I use the local search function, but out of sheer spite.....but would I be cutting off my nose to spite my face? I wonder what improvements are on there which I could be missing out on. I really do hate Apple. I admire their hardware and how they market their products, but I hate their software and how they probably have a legal team which is 100 times the size of their product development team. I actually hate any company which makes too much money...which I'm guessing would include Samsung despite the fact that they brought me the best phone ever made.
