And on the Star Wars note - watch for stuff coming out from Pepsi. They are doing some packaging for the 3D movie coming out.

Nice find, thanks! I love live wallpapers but wasn't happy that it seems most of them lag the phone. I feel like it shouldn't because it's a dual-core phone, the latest OS, tons of RAM, etc. Phase Beam was the only one that didn't lag. I'll try this out, thanks again!

Apple is now suing Samsung over the Galaxy Nexus and slide to unlock.

Watching solo is fine, but you'll also want to watch chewie, luke, r2d2 and leia as well.

Despite not being a fan in the past for online games like Travian, I admit I got hooked on this one. It's the first game I actually gave in to on the in-app purchasing. The devs got $10 out of me so that I could have more "mojo" (I didn't want to feel inadequate like Austin Powers)!

On a side note, the extended battery is doing amazingly well considering the added screen time I've had this week -- still getting through a full day without a 2nd charge.

That makes no sense. The unlock feature is part of the Android system; not the hardware. And to be honest, I thought that was the whole reason Google changed the lock in ICS from the "slide" method in GB to a "wheel" with options on the circumference.

Preach on. You'll have to ask Apple about that one. I just wish they would stop with all the damn lawsuits.

Actually I wish people would start noticing all the bellyaching they do and stop buying all their crap. <-----that is a dream of mine.

For Nova Launch users, there's a new version available - ver 13. It now has infinite screen scrolling! Nice! Now if he'd just add more screen transition effects, and a 'random' option, too!

We all saw this coming back in Oct when they were granted the patent.

Its one thing to protect your innovations and technology. But this really is ridiculous when companies take advantage of the system simply to say "I told you so".

I DO wish Uncle George would stop it and leave his movies alone. Do what you will, but I will not pay good money to go watch a 3D version of a movie that was shot in 2D... heck, my TV has a 3D mode that simulates the same thing and saves me a whole bunch of theater money.

Blu-Ray collection is where I stop, methinks.

YES!

WARNING to BB: Spoiler Alert!

And I did not notice until last week's SW Marathon - at the very end of Episode VI, remember the scene where the "ghosts" of Obi Wan, Yoda and Darth Vader (in white robes, since he finally turned to the good side of the Force in his death scene) join the victory party? Darth Vader in the white robes was played by some actor in the original release of Episode VI. BUT in this apparently "updated" version, the Darth Vader in white robes was digitally replaced with Hayden Christensen! who probably wasn't born when Episode VI was first released. [I'd post a screen grab if I could but MegaUpload is apparently down ]

Talk about fiddling around with history and film integrity.

That was first done in the DVD release, way back in 2004. I remember there being a lot of uproar about it.

If I rent the movies am I going to get the original versions or the new ones? I wanna see them in original form. And you're all too damn far for me to come borrow them. (Or your wife/girlfriend might take offense to an unknown woman showing up)
Damn internet, let's me make great friends that I can't meet.

Guess I was too busy to notice at the time

It just seems wrong to go back and mess with the original.

The ORIGINAL versions (aka Han shoots first) are sealed in Uncle George's vault and likely will never be released... at least not until he's long gone. Then his kids may release the original theatrical releases AGAIN - just to milk more money out of it.

I am fortunate enough to have converted the original versions that came out on laserdisc (LONG time ago) to DVD. I must admit: the newer versions are much cleaner, brighter, and admittedly enhanced. There are more positives than negatives, IMHO. So don't fear watching the version you have, BB. The epic story arc doesn't change

And once you watch Episodes 1 - VI in ORDER, it kind of makes sense to have Hayden at the ending. No more spoilers, though.

Thanks. I'm not too worried about spoilers.Now I have to see if the library has them.

I can send you the vhs copies I have that I bought from a video store that was closing down. They are old. Nothing done to them except stereo or THX sound? The sound is a little messed up on them but that makes them even better. You gotta send them back though!

I was a moderator on a forum once and a bunch of us met up in the Philly area and went up to NYC. Good time. One guy from Cali. 2 girls from KY. 2 guys from Jersey and 1 from near Philly. And me in central PA.

I'd love to do something like that. It would be so fun to actually meet the people I've spent so much time conversing with over the last couple months

Not that I really liked. Perhaps another look is in order

I did notice a few hiccups with the team eos ICS nightly 27 and that is, a few photos made it over from the wipe. Music and movies that I have on my card is MIA, when I first loaded music, my albums showed up and then a split second later, google music popped up. Perhaps I should sign in? The camera / camcorder don't work, but HDR camera + does. I don't use the camera on this thing anyway.

Maps is NOT installed, but that is a simple download I think.

I poked around a bit and found the overclock settings... max is 1.7ghz and change

Not sure if my 4g radio is trashed or not. Wifi is strong.

I heard the latest build will allow me to mount a thumbdrive (perhaps an external HDD?)

Anyone having trouble with their Market? :/ I've got just under a hundred apps installed, give or take, but when I go to "My Apps," I see 27 installed, 13 not installed (though those 13 are in fact all installed), and the others are all missing! I don't have any updates listed, though I know some of mine have updates ready - when I search for them, I see the app in the search results, and it says it has an update. Rebooting seems to do nothing. Anyone got ideas for me?

does anyone else hate the term "rocking" used in place of the verb "using?" I think I haven't seen this usage before I started reading android forums.

the cool thing about the new nova launcher for me is ability to edit the icons for folders!

Default Airdroid not working

I'm using Airdroid to try to transfer files from my wife's DX2 to my computer. It connects with no problem. On the computer, I click the "files", then select the folder (or files) I want to copy, either click on the "copy" button on the airdroid page or right click and choose "copy". However, when I go to my computer's file explorer, it won't let me click on "paste". It is grayed out. It doesn't matter whether I right click the file or folder on the phone, or choose the "copy" button - same thing. What am I doing wrong?

I am trying to copy via 'export', which looks like it may work, but I really just want to use the 'copy' process. Help!

On your computer, you need to check the select all box and export. It will then put the files in a zip and dump them in your download folder on your PC. At least thats what happened when I transfered 80+mb worth of photos (would not do video, however) last night.

Odd controls. I would rather: control A, control C then control V in a folder of my choice on my PC

Whelp, just had a fun experience. Flashed AOKP 19 and everything was smooth. Tried to change my wallpaper with WallBase and all of a sudden, I lost my softkeys and kept having System UI crash. Ugh had to do a battery pull and mistakenly booted into bootloader and not recovery. Well, I had to reboot and other than my wallpaper having changed to the stock one, things seem to be working well. Guess I should go ahead and do another backup now!

Edit: seriously, am I dumb enough to try applying the same wallpaper and expecting different results?!?!
I guess that certainly is the definition of insanity...

Eh, we got barely an inch here and it's supposed to turn over to rain any moment now. I grew up in the NE and I'm a little depressed by how mild our winter has been this year
