Normally I would just buy a digitizer, but my phone has been having other problems as well, sometimes whenever I type huge blocks of text, it will delete it by pressing the back button with no way to stop it. It's to unpopular a phone, so many companies do not support games on it, and it has random glitches, where it thinks the keyboard does not exist. Not to mention WI-FI needing to be constantly reconnected. So, at this point I know I want a new phone, but the choice is quite hard, because my contract is not yet expired on Sprint, and once it does my dad is moving us to a new carrier. So, it needs to be a quadband phone, meaning it can get into any network, CDMA, GSM, LTE, or WCDMA. Which narrows my options to really only one phone, the Nexus 5. The Nexus 5 is made by a partner ship between Google and LG(why they don't use Motorola, which they already own is beyond me). This is really nice because it is subsidized by Google, and is the phone made by Google to show off Android to developers, and consumers. Also if I got the Nexus 5, I could design a new case for it, which is always fun.
On another 3d printing note, I did not win the contest for the Ultimaker. However, they were nice enough to ship me my entry to my house for free. It looks really great, it shows how great the UP is at making things, honestly the layer stacking compared to my Printrbot, make the Printrbot look like shit. Then again that is expected as the UP is the same size, but three times the cost.
