So ended up seeing The Raid: Redemption. Fantastic fight scenes. Also have never seen that much cursing in a foreign film (English subtitled). Soundtrack was solid too, done with a guy from Linkin Park.

Sorry to hear that. If it makes you feel any better, I've got two onerous tasks staring me down, and choosing which one to pick up and work on each day is a little like choosing between being trampled by a herd of stampeding horses and being stabbed repeatedly with a spoon.

Anyone using the Team Win Recovery (TWRP) through Goo Manager? I have only ever used CWM. I like that I could use the Goo Manager App to install my ROM's right from the app, and it seems to work better than what it does for ROM Manager, which I have always had to flash through CWM.

Thanks!!!

Morning everyone. I'll be pretty quiet today. I have one of those 1/2 hour department head meetings at 9:30 that typically last until 2:00 PM.

Morning all. Watched "We Bought a Zoo" last night, and I must say, was a pretty good movie.

We watched it a couple of weeks ago at the wife's request and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Very good movie.

Morning Anti,

I've been thinking of picking that up. Is it Blue Ray worthy or should I save the money and just watch it in upsized DVD?

Hmm, good question. We got the bluray, but watched it on our bedroom tv, which is only 720p. I don't see a need for the bluray really.

If I can find the combopack I'll go with that. The kids can trash the DVD copy and I still have one to watch for family movie night.

We rented it out of one of the box rentals on DVD and I didn't suffer from watching it, but then again it was only on our bedroom tv. Might would have been a different story on our 42" living room tv. But neither of ours are 1080p either...720 only. I would think you'd be ok with DVD for this one. Really nothing in the movie worthy of blu-ray.

Good morning all and happy Wednesday (hump day to those celebrating it). Slowly getting my car figured out - my friend took two wheels to work to try and remount two tires to see if he can get them to stop leaking. We'll see what happens with that. Right now I'm calling my car the mullet, business in the front party in the back.



Also making nice progress on my iOS app - working on the settings now and then need to finish some logic and test. Then it will be up in the app store for download. I have to admin that even native iOS elements are nice looking.

And VW's 2.5L I-5 engine is exactly one half of that motor - it's whats in my car.

Haha, the mullet! Maybe he can get them mounted with no leaks

Making nice progress on the iOS app. I've got a question regarding Android dev I'll shoot you in a PM if you don't mind throwing me a bone.

Please NO. Samsung already has made 2 Nexus phones, I think the other OEMs should be given a chance. If they did, I would call out that this is definitely favouritism from Google!

They did the first one, but their quality has come a long way since then, I'd like to see them get another shot.

I think Sammy has only made 2. Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus, right? Anywho, I never want to see Moto make one. Maybe LG?

Oops! Guess I need to brush up on my Android history.
I despise Motorola. I'd rather get a locked and skinned HTC over a Motorola phone. At least right now. It would have to be multi-nerdgasm worthy for me to even consider Motorola.

Yeah, lol. I had two similar thoughts in my head when I was writing that. One was 'Samsung already made 2 Galaxy Nexus' and 'I don't want Samsung to make a 3rd'

Why don't you want Moto? As a Nexus phone, there won't be a lock bootloader. Their phones are good quality build for radio, speakers and speaker phone.

Motorola phones are built really well though, but their cameras suffer.

I'd love to see HTC make it again though - their Nexus One was a nice looking device and the One S and One X are gorgeous devices - hoping the report is wrong though.

My problem with Moto is that every phone in our house with that name gave us nothing but problems. Original Razr, Krazr, then Droid2. Ugh. And now I can't stand the way the Razr feels in my hand. Its awkward. (Personal opinions though)

Yes, but if the camera is not something you rely on daily, then you should be fine with a Moto.

What I noticed with HTC is that they cheap out on some items like battery and speakers. Radio was weak on the Nexus One, Desire (line) and Incredible.

You know what I want? Google to collaborate with ALL of the OEMs for their Nexus Phones.

Samsung - Super AMOLED+ screen and Exynos processor
Sony - Camera with the Mobile BRAVIAŠ Engine
HTC/Sony for the Nexus' design.

So Sammy again eh? Well, that just about clinches my thoughts on whether Verizon will be getting the next Nexus... I though if Moto did it we may actually see the next one, and HTC would be up in the air, but I feel if Samsung is in fact doing the next one, Verizon won't get it.

A SuperNexus phone!

I'd love for them to include the battery from the RAZR Maxx in there too - that'd be sweet.

My problem with Moto is they can't even get the two main features of a smartphone right. They haven't made a phone with a top notch camera or screen ever. The radios are even a disappointment to me. I had more call quality issues and dropped calls on my OG Droid than I do on my Nexus.

So I was thinking the other day about this and the Megathread, and had an idea for a fun app to remember everyone by. An automatic reply generator, where you put in the person who made the original post, and it generates a reply. Could be hilarious. Of course plenty of "That's what she said" would be included

For the GSM model, the next Nexus must continue to have penta-band frequencies for both GSM and UMTS/HSPA+ (i.e. include the AWS frequencies). It mus also have removable micro-SD card slot. My two requirements for a Nexus phone.

I really wish that would happen. A phone with the screen of the GNex, the battery of the Razr Maxx, camera and sensor...eh, GNex/Rezound/Sony, HTC One body and possibly the HTC radio design with antennas throughout the back. (Like I said, poor experience with Moto radios)

I'm over the micro-SD slots. With USB host mode now on phones, it's just as easy, if not easier, to attach a thumb drive as it is to remove the sd card. Some phones you have to power off and remove the battery to get the SD card out. Build in flash memory and USB host mode is the best solution IMO.

Build in flash memory would be the most ideal, but when the Galaxy Nexus in Canada only offers the 16GB version. Then that is not enough for me. I think the 32GB version is only for Verizon's GNex.

Most people have to pay per MB/GB, so they can't access everything that's stored in the cloud unless they want to pay overage in data. I and other people like me want the option of being able to put more memory in our phones when the internal flash memory is full.

I have not missed the sd card slot. 32GB onboard is enough for me. In fact, I have only used 3.8GB on my phone

Same here. I was hoping they would offer a 16GB version for $50-$100 less and I was going to buy it. If I want to load something or take something off of my phone I use my USB Host cable and my thumb drive. Way cheaper than buying a micro SD card.

32GB internal is perfect for me too.

I just wish the battery would last a bit longer when I wasn't on Wifi.

To me this is the most important issue. I don't have that strong of an opinion on the manufactures, I just want the Nexus to come to Verizon again.

BTW, are we allowed to talk about Nexus phones on this thread?

Yep. If this phone had made proper use of space and built in a huge battery, this would be the ultimate phone. The screen rocks, the processor is great, the shape/design is perfect. The only downfall is the battery.

You'll hear no complaints from me, maybe I just got a really good one I will admit the wife's Rezound gets better reported signal and hits 4G sooner than mine, but as far as call quality and data speeds we're about the same at all times. Rarely does she have signal when I don't.
