The ones that were advertised for CDMA would not work, they were for GSM.

So now it is safe to purchase this for CDMA.... Thanks...
Originally, they only had one and did not specify that it would not work with the cdma phones. Now they have both and as long as you make sure you get the correct one, you will be great.

Yep. That's what I hear from every member of the family. It doesn't matter what you do for encouragement, the students simply will not try. You can get them to try once or twice with the same incentive, but after that, it's like they expect more so they quit trying until you come up with something new and late in the year nothing works. There are few, if any, self-motivated students that try and get good grades.

One last thing on this education rant and I'll shut my mouth, but it's a scary thought.

What is going to happen when this generation graduates and are the ones running this country and its businesses??

Part of the instructions to pass students on, whether they should go or not, are related to some stupid self esteem issues. But the biggest driver that I have seen is that so much funding from state and federal levels is tied to graduation rates, etc. Can't have any children left behind now can we? /sigh

Thanks all very much!

It's very exciting...it's such a miraculous event, first time parent here. I have 2 younger sisters and they have 4 little girls so my folks welcome the addition of a grandson.

Due date is July 26th. Wife really wanted a boy, I could go either way I just want my baby to be healthy. Yesterday at the doc office he finally flipped over in my wifes tummy to show gender. My wife asked the doctor 3 times are you sure it's a boy lol. He said "yes!" the first 2 times, then the third time said "if it's a girl then she has a penis" (medical/anatomy talk okay) and I lost it

It does not matter anymore. This country is digging a hole to no where and it is getting deeper.

I think my native american family and friends were to kind 200 + years ago.

Apple just changed the definition of a term they made up and defined themselves. "Retina display" It now doesn't have to be the 300+ ppi apparently. They say the new iPad is 264ppi and that still is enough to qualify it as a "retina display"

Things the new iPad gets that Android tablets already have:

4G LTE - check
5MP camera - check
1080p recording - check
Dual Core Processor - check (quad core)
Retina Display - ehhh...debatable

edit: Oh, and the name of the new iPad? The new iPad. lame

Same could be said for the current Columbia University "graduate" I don't remember the last GOOD president we had, because there hasn't been one in my lifetime.

edit: Just to clarify. Not an Obama basher or Bush basher. Neither am I a democrat or Republican. I simply just am not satisfied with any of the Presidents dating back to the first Bush, which is as far as I can remember. I'm not satisfied with any of the candidates that appear to be in the lead for their party nominations this year either (obviously Obama for the Dems and Santorum or Romney for the Repubs).

I said the same thing.

OH and someone on Engadget mentioned Bezel gestures -- sounds like the Playbook to me.

But the retina thing threw me off, they said you need 300+ ppi for retina and now 264 is "good enough" - oh c'mon.

Also, they're calling the A5X a quad core GPU. It's a dual core processor with a dual core GPU. Not accurate calling it a quad core.

Cue the "Price is Right" loser music. No "textured" touch screen technology. Nothing groundbreaking with this device at all. Not even a quad core device. No word on memory specs because they probably didn't bump it from the 512MB (I think) that was in the iPad 2. So let's break down what you get in the "Revolutionary, NEW iPad"

-4G LTE Tech that has been out nearly a year in some Android phones
-A camera that has been out for several months in the iPhone 5, wait, 4S
-FINALLY the ability to record 1080P
-A faux quad core processor
-And last but not least, a bump in your screen resolution to "good enough" "retina"

Very unimpressed, but tons and tons of people are going to line up to buy one.

Yeah, not amazing by any standards. Apple was able to get out ahead of the market, but not by rapid tech evolution, rather it was just because no one else thought there WAS a market. Both for the touch screen smartphone, and the tablet, they spent a LONG time (relatively, in the tech world) to make those products right. But Android allows manufacturers to pick up the concept, and run with it, and not too long later have surpassed Apple on the technical side.

I will be honest, the iPad 2 for $399 sounds more appealing than the New iPad for $499.

iFixit is where I get my actual device specs. I like seeing the guts of these things.

Hi fellow Gnexers!

Well, let's see: I have both kids with strep throat (which means my son is missing work AND his concert performances). Waiting on tires for my son's new 1985 VW Westy, trying to sell his 1982 Datsun 280Z 2+2 (if you're interested in a sports car, PM me ), Darling Bride is in bed not well, and I'm in the cross-hairs!

Meanwhile, Google Play is on my Nexus, works just fine. Still waiting on a horizontal dock to come in (but I'll probably just use my Capta instead).

And CONGRATS to jbdan for the impending summer download!

Westys are awesome!

You backed Capta too? Sweet. I cannot wait to get mine in the mail and according to their emails that should be very, very soon.

So, has anyone else seen that straight Talk commercial with the woman and Andy? I keep thinking a fitting end would be him blowing her away.

Oh, and congrats, we have passed 10% of the GNex pre-release thread. And BB is posting 5 times more than she did in that thread.

That's because I have time to leisurely read things here now rather than the mad catch up of pre release thread each night.

not sure if anyone else is having issues with their Google wallet but had to share a phandroid phunny....
Just got off the phone with both money network and the Google wallet team...issue is still affecting some people, and they are hoping by the end of the week to have a resolution...????? The guy at money network was nicer...and said his wallet on his nexus has been down for a month and his is showing the same discrepancy with OS mysid #s that mine is, so he would let me know if he hears anything....and asked if I was a follower of phandroid, since info would probably be there before his boss told him about it....
Had to laugh at that one!!!!

Btw....evening to all !!!!!

Here's hoping that I don't get a lot of work to do tomorrow - looks like I am going to have to do a full wipe of Nyxie. Something borked tonight when trying to get the new market and now I have nothing. And I'm too tired and frustrated to troubleshoot tonight.
So, I'll just leave it for the night and deal with it tomorrow

When you say wallet is down, what does that mean? Can you still open it in your phone? Mine was working until tonight. However, once I accepted the download of Google Play tonight, now when I open wallet, it is forcing me to update wallet. But than Play denies it due to the carrier. Is this what is happening to you?

Actually about a month ago I wiped my phone to go from AOKP m series to a b series ROM and that's what apparently did me in. Was working fine till then, but because I did a wipe, I am experiencing some issue with the mysid # in the app not matching the mysid on the phone so the prepaid system is completely broken for me....when I have tried to reload the prepaid card...prepaid is unavailable....
Apparently it will be fixed soon...I hope. I understand other people are seeing the same, but because I do not use CITI bank can't test the rest of the app on my phone.
I also understand others are having issues with the Google play site, and more carrier interaction and app refusals in the last day or so...which just gives our wonderful devs something to work on...right?
