I am pretty sure if you give me 32GB, I'll use it up pretty soon. I like to store everything on my phone and loath to delete them, even after I upload them onto my computer.

I don't see what's wrong with having options. It seems like options are bad now-a-days. No SD card option or non removable batteries seem to be the status quo for Android. All this thrend in phones is making Roze sad

I just don't understand what is wrong with Android though and its the one thing that annoys me - I understand it takes some more power to have a bigger screen, but...

The iPhone 4S battery is 1432mAh and my girlfriend makes it through the day no problem at all and charges at night. If she is good she can make it two days no problem. The Nexus is 2100mAh (with extended battery) and I can barely make it to 5PM.

3.5" screen to a 4.65" screen doesn't seem like a huge difference, but it really is. A 4.65" screen has an area of 9.24 square inches. A 3.5" screen only has an area of 5.23 square inches. That's a 77% larger area for the Nexus over the iPhone. The nexus only has a 50% larger battery for the extended battery over the iPhone but a 77% larger screen. Factor in the more powerful processor as well and there's your battery difference.

Not only did you answer the question but you did it in a way that all of us non tech/math/engineering people can understand. Well done!

Me either. I don't look at those numbers. I smile and make my monthly payments and go on with life. There are now three things for certain in life...death, debt, and taxes. I'm blessed not to have any credit card debt and I could pay off our truck loan if I wanted to, but then we wouldn't have any savings.

Captain Ron, thought of you during the hike with the dog this morning...



Lake defrosted last week and our only airport is now open

Rode in this floatplane a few years back when the roads were closed due to a massive slide. I was the only passenger, so I flew up front with the pilot (who looked to be about 17, but was 27). Took a few side trips since there was no schedule to stick to, flew over the glaciers and lakes. Could only talk through a headset it was so loud. Totally awesome ride. Have you flown one?

Beautiful pic! I've flown a lot of things, but never a float plane. I'm sure flying low altitude around the glaciers and lakes was a spectacular adventure.

Great explanation Geek. Also, doesn't 4G suck up more power than the iPhone's 3G?

How about a glider? Don't need headsets to talk in that, only the sound of the wind. I got to go up in one a long time ago, was awesome. Did some mild aerobatics too. (Wing overs and a hammerhead). Had vultures like 20 feet away soaring in thermals.

I decided recently to just start buzzing my head.

Beats paying for a haircut and needing to make an appointment. Although my friend cut my hair so I sorta feel bad but I don't think she minds since our entire group of friends goes to her.

Looking for more opinions since I am indecisive and I know you have better reasoning skills than I do. iAd Option #1 or iAd Option #2?

lol, I have had my hair long for most of my life with interval of med. length hair. I cut my hair short once. I was broke and my sister gave me $20 if I chopped off all of my hair, lol.

LOL ya never know - some girls can pull off the short hair look very, very well. Although that is very short, but hey ya never know.

I was leaning towards Option #2 anyway - keep it towards the bottom so its not intrusive but its there to support me as the developer.

I'll be doing an in-app purchase to remove the ad though, hoping that I can get more people to buy it that way instead of releasing two different versions.

I don't know a single woman that can, lol. Short hair is really dependant on the face and body type as to whether it can be pulled off as well.

My wife has short hair. In fact right now it may be shorter than mine, as I am desperate for a haircut, but haven't had the time.

I'm fun sized with a semi round face and I'm pretty sure a somewhat bumpy head. Thinking I'm not gonna ever rock a buzz!!
And short hair is not my best look either. I've tried.

Another Stephen King book adaption. This time THE EYES OF THE DRAGON, another good book of his. Flagg is in this one also. The bad thing about it? SyFy.

Some women pull of the short hair very well, others do not I won't comment on your wife's looks, partially because I haven't seen her...partially because she aint my wife, but if you think she pulls it off that's all that matters

My wife has never gotten the hankerin' to chop her hair off, always been shoulder length or longer. I'm anxious aobut the day she comes in with it chopped to her ears/jaw-line because I can't picture her without longer hair....unsure of how good it would look. I know it's coming though

Woohoo! Droid-life just reported ICS is rolling out to A500s today! Both my android devices will now have ICS.

I turned on tethering to check for the update, of course my network signal is too poor, and then my Nexus rebooted! grr. Going to have to wait till I get home I guess.

We had tvs installed at work that also have cameras in them. Supposedly from the department of homeland security. Usually the date, time and norfolk info is displayed on them at all times. Anyways. I noticed someone looking up at one of them for an unusual amount of time. I decide to look. Transformers 3 was playing! It was playing for at least 20 minutes LOL

I am a complete ditz today. I left the office and after walking for a block, I felt it strange that my shoulder felt so light. I turned to touch my bag that was not there. I had to run back to the office and grab my purse :/

I have done this numerous times with numerous items. I think it's perfectly normal. Either that or I'm a ditz too!

I have to do a BabyBlues and fess up. Never seen the movie.

Evening all! sounds like everyone is having some fun chatting this evening. Loved Shawshank and Green Mile. BB, you could pawn some shoes to get out of debt, jk,lol. Prefer ads on the bottom of the screen, seems less intrusive there. I have not had short hair since I was a wee one and my Mom got tired of messing with my long hair so she chopped it to a pixie. I have been hearing for the last 20 years about how maybe its time to cut my hair, you know the "your getting too old for long hair bit: (gotta love mothers). Mine is mid back and has been since I was a teen, cant even imagine going shorter then shoulders. Float planes; I use to live on a lake and we had a neighbor with a float plane, he was a lot of fun to watch do touch and go's on a saturday afternoon. Course, I loved the look of terror on the jet skier's face when they realized they were competing with a plane for that stretch of water. lol. Great end to the day here, it has warmed up to a very nice 78 degrees, we have chicken on the barbee and I am sitting here on the porch watching the Heron's battle the seagulls for some fish whilst catching up on my AF friends day. Hope everyone has a great evening!

Tell me about it. The wife simply refuses to get a haircut. I have her hair all over my clothes and I'm tired of it.
I just shave my head once a month and call it a day.

I would take clippers to my head but the wife won't let me. So I go with a one on the sides (stubble) and a four on top (a little more than stubble) so there is some differentiation in length. I tell the barber that when I have to comb it in the morning, I come back.

Well the wife doesn't care for my buzz cut but it's just how I roll. It helps being in a kitchen with the heat and not having to wear a hat. I also just don't care about how my hair looks.
I guess it helps being married, but it's pretty much true that your self appearance means much less once you're not trying to get a partner

My appearance still matters, but now I only have to worry about how one person perceives my appearance.

I much prefer short hair. Especially since I have to wear a hat. But she likes my curls so I'm growing it out for her.

In high school, I was the typical hippy type anarchist who didn't care how they smelled, looked or dressed. Now I have to be out in the public eye and be representative of our restaurant, so I had to clean up my act.
My hair has absolutely no personality so growing out it is a waste.

Yeah I have thick unruly hair. My bed head is so bad, if I don't take a shower and wash my hair to reset it, you can forget about a good hair day.
