Hmm, yes. . . . Passed away he did.

Of the Love Tunnel, has anyone heard? Perhaps with L.T. Steven moved in?
Hmm, more thought this requires, yes. . . . .

Anyone on here tweaked with their screen brightness levels? Also, anyone know of any tests involving the Nexus battery life at different screen brightness levels?

Haven't found any battery life differences but I generally run my Nexus at ~25% screen brightness. If I'm outdoors and need it, I'll crank it up, but that's it. I used to always use Auto, but found the Nexus isn't the best on that setting versus previous phones.

I have actually never used my standard battery, exist solely on the extended, so I can't vouch for any noticeable difference either.

That's why I'm modifying my brightness levels in the ROM I'm running. It gives you the ability to not only change the brightness at each level, but change the breakpoints of each level and set how many levels you want so you could potentially just have 3 levels for low, medium, and high. What I'm doing is keeping indoor levels really low as I've found it really doesn't matter. I'm putting 25 different levels just for smooth transitions at first, I'll probably cull that down to 10 levels but I'm fine tuning each to run the lowest possible brightness I can stand.

OH, I've run solely on extended too. I'm just tweaking my screen brightness to see what difference it makes.

I find that Axiom's Patient Zero rom gives me the best battery life. He uses one of Trinity's kernels and it's a 4.0.4 base. At first I didn't notice any difference, but after letting it "settle" for a day and letting the battery run all the way down, it seems to be pretty good.

I'm getting about 7 or 8 hours, but I use my brightness set at 100% at all times.

100% all the time?!?! You're nuts. I use mine for the most part around 25% as it's perfectly adequate. This is the first phone I've found the Auto setting is pretty poor. I turn it up only when I'm in bright sunshine (the ONE place where I find the Bionic to be better).

I usually run it around 50% unless in bright sunshine too. Then it's got to be at 100% and angled juuuuuust right for no glare. Still better than the Dinc in the sun though.

Wow. 100% brightness on mine is blinding in some lighting conditions, haha. Be careful with that, you'll burn your retinas

With backlit devices, I just can't handle them being so bright. Maybe it's just cause I'm usually in darker places, but I like it to be pretty gentle on my eyes. The Nexus can get bright as hell, but it's got nothing on my Prime with IPS on and full brightness!

I'm tweaking it to where I run roughly 8% indoors and scaling up from there. I expect pretty good screen on times when I get through.

YOU are the crazy ones! I just tried it at 25% indoors, and it looks hideous. I feel like I'm going blind or something.

Hmmmm having issues loading Titanium Appcelerator into my OSX Virtual Machine.

Weird - gotta figure this out. Might be the time to give PhoneGap a try while I figure this out as well.

That is quite likely
100% just seems like I'm looking at a flashlight, but obviously, to each their own.

Good question. I've been getting lost in being a "moderator." By that I mean following up on reported posts and moderating breeches in the rules and arguments. That becomes less than fun, sometimes. I realized if I don't get out and have fun and shmooze more, I'm going to burn out. So, I'm trying.

What I particularly don't have fun with is when a member insults another member. I infract them, then they rail at me for being unfair. In some ways, this is a no-win job. So? I think I'll do better getting out more.

Steven, I figured the Mod job was taking away a bunch of the fun. I know how it is to be a manager at work and spend my job disciplining people. Sucks, but that's how life is.

Man, I'm just on a lazy afternoon of enjoying some new music. A drink and some chips, great music, and the great company here. It's been a while since I read Pitchfork. Finding some awesome stuff on Rhapsody. I recommend that app to anyone who loves music. The subscription is about $15 a month and you can link it with many devices. Wife pays for it and we can use her account for both phones, laptop, blu-ray player.

Was reading a couple reviews of his albums. Looks like he's able to cram a dozen or so different samples into EVERY song. Crazy stuff. I know some people think he's a "poser" or has no talent, but this is some fun party music.

(also, that linked song is certainly NSFW, fyi)

The Titan?!?! Voted, looks we're going just fine.
And keep us posted on when the next round is. The SGS2 and 900 may be some tough battles.
2nd edit: the Bold beat the One X?? Granted the phone isn't out yet, but it's better than anything RIM could ever envision.

Anyone on here tweaked with their screen brightness levels? Also, anyone know of any tests involving the Nexus battery life at different screen brightness levels?
Yeah I use this: (a good starting point for ya's)

- Light sensor filter = enabled, window length 10s, reset threshold 400lux, sample interval 1s.

- Light levels = use custom check, screen dim level 20 default, allow light decrease check (I like it to lower automatically as well) and decrease hysteresis 50%

Here is my Edit other levels screen settings:

Ugh, I'm at Droid Hive (anyone else?) waiting for Axiom to drop Patient Zero version 15. Getting impatient!

It has Beats integrated and a Sony Bravia engine, which supposedly sharpens up the image and has a better contrast.

Alright, let's hear everyone's dinner plans!
I'm looking at finally trying our neighborhood's ramen shop tonight. After a few weeks of unusually warm weather, today has been a bit chilly. Hoping to tuck into a nice bowl of ramen soup.

Pam's working tonight, so it is just Evan, Ryan and I. Probably pasta leftovers. Seafood sounds good though Early, maybe I'll do a medley tomorrow. Homemade grilled shrimp marinated in olive oil and garlic plus scallops wrapped in bacon for an appetizer. Cod fillets and a couple of chicken lobsters for the main course. The beauty of that is it is something I can do after work as it only takes a few minutes to cook each. Hmmm, digging out the steaming pot.

I certainly envy you folks with kids and the responsibility of providing food for them!
Guess we're still in the "fend for yourself" food times. I may be at home by 6, sometimes 7, sometimes 8+. Wife is also at will to be done with work at any time. It's hard to cook at home. We'll generally just order delivery or coordinate one of us bring something home to eat. Fun times. (<-- that is my custom sarcastic face)

I'm thinking 6:15-ish. I'll have to stop at the store to grab the lobsters and cod. We had the shrimp in the freezer and fresh garlic kicking around so I have those marinating now. I'll cook the cod in foil packets with a touch of olive oil, onions, tomatoes, and red peppers so they are really healthy. Just have to stay away from the butter with the lobsters and we should be OK. I love living in New England, fresh seafood is readily available.
