Yes. And sure enough, came back from my class, and still holding 4G at my desk. These radios are looking good.

I think that one of the comments I heard on TV made a very good point - we have placed so much sexual innuendo on breasts that their original use has become something taboo to do outside your own home. I don't think a woman should just pull them out in the middle of a park but for feeding purposes, if done in a respectful manner, should not be cause for a media circus.

Personally, I think it could cause some psychological issues.

I'm a little late on the Time article, but all I can say is, as a mother who breastfed, I could not even consider doing so once a) the child has teeth or at the very least b) is old enough to ask for it/get it him/herself. For me, the issue is more one of creating in the child a continued sense of dependency on the mother. What other animals continue feeding their young on an extended basis, once they are capable of feeding themselves? While I try not to judge people who choose to nurse into toddlerhood, I do believe that our job as parents is to foster a sense of dependency in our kids to prepare them for the cold cruel world, and I have to wonder if they do it for health benefits, or if it's an attachment/control/dependency-co-dependency thing.

As long as I can still access google maps on my iPad from the browser then I'll be happy. And I don't have any intention of switching to a new map system that is untried. Let's just hope its better than something like MapQuest.

I agree. And the bulk of Apple users that I know aren't even aware that they are already left in the technological dust (with Android offering turn by turn voice navigation). Those who take the time to educate themselves once they learn they will no longer have access to Google Maps may just flip to the dark side.

It's the wild animal park as if it were African veldt. I prefer it to caged animals. You can even camp out (and hopefully not get eaten).

Sea World is great fun. Bring a clear plastic drop cloth and sit in the front row of the Shamu and dolphin shows. Also....big Budweiser Beer School!

Anyone know/familiar with Vinyl & records. I feel like I want to start buying and just listening to vinyl, get a bit nostalgiac. I think it's cool.

Amazon has this one for $75 and its got ridiculously good reviews: Amazon.com: Audio Technica AT-LP60 Fully Automatic Belt Driven Turntable: Electronics

Thoughts? Anyone know of a good place to buy records online? Am I better off at a local shop?

Nonsense, you love your family and friends so much you are willing to give them the gift of Android, AND help them by keeping yourself up to date on their devices.

We have a functioning 1929 Victrola that plays 78s and they sound so warm, so full and robust... no comparison to the cold bitstream of modern digital music.

From your post I guess you're looking for 33-1/3 LPs, though. Thrift stores and yard sales are a great place to find gems on the cheap. We have to hunt a little more for old 78s, though...

Yeah probably end up getting most 33-1/3s but just to get away from the digital. I think it'd be cool to just get home from work and put a record on - sounds so relaxing even if it happens to be upbeat music. Would be cool for when I have a family and stuff - blow my kids minds.

Same here. My husband wouldn't have a cell phone at all if it weren't for me, much less a smart phone. (He did flee to the iPhone, though...he couldn't handle Android. Too much for him.)

On another note, anyone remember Quiet Riot? They're playing at a small venue near me tonight, so we're going to go check 'em out. I think it's only the drummer from the original line up (I know the singer died some time back, not sure where the rest are.) I do love me some 80's rock. Don't judge.

Well, I am sitting here (procrastinating (its what this introvert does)) getting ready to backup a few documents that I have on my 13" macbook pro then to gather the information and tools I need to restore this puppy to factory settings. Its getting a new home.

The 13" is just not enough for me. My desktop is in the way and having issues so I decided to change things up and get the computer I should have got in the first place. But, this little 13" MBP was just an experiment. It has almost replaced my desktop, but I need more power for some things like photo and HD video editing. So I pulled the trigger on the 13" bigger brother. The 15" base model MBP. I decided the high end 15" was overkill and I could use the 400 bucks on a new external drive and some ram which will help with the photo and video editing.

This little 13" MBP I am typing on now, well, Im going to give it to my mom for mothers day

The 15" MBP will likely, for the most part, replace my desktop. 2.2ghz vs 2.8 I am running now. 600mhz difference and a newer CPU. I may dual boot with windows 7 and heck, I may even be able to use the 64 bit version.

I think I will use an external firewire dock and stash most of my data on those and leave the internal drive for the programs and OS.

Nope, no worries. Go for it. I will be honest, I did go back to 3G for most of the afternoon, but it's still better than it was.

Been awhile since I have even tinkered with this stuff. In rom manager, do I install from SD card from the main menu or reboot into recover or?

Evening everyone!
I've been running really well on Liquid 1.35. Haven't had too many problems with Rhapsody which was my main sticking point before. Couple tweaks I miss from AOKP but I'll stick with this for a bit.

On another note, anyone remember Quiet Riot? They're playing at a small venue near me tonight, so we're going to go check 'em out. I think it's only the drummer from the original line up (I know the singer died some time back, not sure where the rest are.) I do love me some 80's rock. Don't judge.
Come on feel the noise...

I actually sat and had lunch with them almost 20 years ago. Kind of a weird run in. They were already one and done and stopped at an inn in PA I was working at. They were playing a county fair in the area, their tour bus placard said No1UKnow.

Beat this destructive daughter story:

About 15 years ago I had a white Honda Civic with a dented front bumper. I ordered a new bumper online and it came in... flat black plastic.

I took my time and carefully painted the bumper white. Let it dry. Did it again. It took days. Daughter "helped" me install it by watching and handing me the right screwdriver when I needed it.

I went inside to get a couple of cold drinks for us. BIG MISTAKE.

When I came back out, the new front bumper was still in place, BUT: her name was proudly and prominently etched into the bumper, all the way across it.

I was ballistic... and she cried because I wasn't "proud" of her work. I couldn't STAY mad, of course. I hugged her and reassured her that she had done a great job spelling her name correctly. And her name rode with me every day until I sold the car years later... and I sold it with her name still on it.

If I find a rom I dig now, can I just install over the new radios? Or will I need to re-install them?

Install just as you normally would. The radios won't change unless you change them.

Okay

I think I found a rom I may want to try, so, I am going to need someone to help me out with this a bit.

The rom is LiquidSmooth v1.35

Now, obviously I need to back things up and I got titanium backup pro. So, do I need to:

a) Backup all user apps
b) Backup all system Data
c) Backup all apps + system data

Then I know I need to flash the rom after this, and I guess its the same as the radio flash, just open up rom manager and chose install from SD card

then after it installs the rom, I go back into titanium and restore a, b, or c

right?

TiBu don't ever do system data. Its a surefire way to get frustrated. I always backup user apps and data. Some people just do the apps. You have to see which works best for you. I have a schedule set in TiBu that does my apps, then any new apps and another for any changes I've made to any. I only tell you those so you have am idea of what it can do. Once Liquid is flashed and up then you can go into TiBu and restore user apps and data or just user apps. Some people occasionally have problems restoring data. I haven't run into that yet.
