Yeah good luck figuring that out.
Haha! yeah, that is a good one! except no numbers, so it would fail many secure password requirement checks

Yeah, you are creeping up, I blame my work. Craziness right now, and will continue for at least a few more weeks. Just can't post like I was last month, holding you off.

In other news I saw this headline on my twitter feed.
iPad mini criticism: iPhone fans call it pointless in survey

And all I could think was, the byline was going to be "And yet 96% of them admitted they will still buy it"

You can dooooo it. I was actually going along very slowly following 5k until the N7 forum kicked up. I think the vast majority of the last 2k posts of mine are in there.

Apple fans will buy anything they make :P I guess I should be more active in the N7 forum. I'm sure there's a lot of people needing pointers that hasn't had ICS or JB for 7+ months like us, haha

Oh yeah, there are a ton of folks that have seen nothing beyond Gingerbread on their phones jumping all the way to Jelly Bean. JB is only a minor upgrade for us GNex folks but it is night and day coming from GB.

Yeah and it definitely is increasing people's satisfaction with Android.

They definitely need to get more devices supported for JB though to get people excited about what Android has to offer.

Problem is the manufactures to some extent and the carriers to a larger extent getting the updates out there. There are tens of millions of devices in the wild that could easily run JB if the gatekeepers would allow it.

Sigh, I am being bombarded with N7 ads, they are EVERYWHERE. My wife actually wants me to sell the Acer, and get that one now, but still won't agree to buy it outright.

That's what I did Anti. Sold my Galaxy Tab and bought the N7. WELL worth it!

I'm the same way. I enjoy helping with the new devices and things I am familiar with. The post count has been light lately because most people have caught on to the GNex and haven't been many new users asking new questions. The N7 didn't get here till right before vacation but now I'm glad to provide some imput over there

We have a king, and I still get about 6 square inches of real estate between the husband and three dogs (the largest of which is only about 35 lbs.) The two pugs alone could take up the entire bed without even trying.

I haven't seen it yet...the commercials are annoying...it makes it look like one of those trainwrecks you just can't look away from....or that sore tooth you just keep sucking air into to see if it still hurts.

I know it's not Android-related, but:

Just read the latest PC World magazine and they have a HUGE article (cover story) on the Windows Surface tablet. WOW!

Could I actually retire my 4 y/o laptop? One can dream...

Haven't seen a ton about the Surface but so far I like what I'm seeing.
I'm more tempted to get an Ultra book but I'll keep my eyes open.

So I don't know how many musicians we have here but I thought I'd share:

(kind of a long story warning)

When I was a young guitar player ( about 7 - 8 years ago ), I used to go to my moms office after school every day. I used to enjoy it because her boss (rich guy) was also a guitar player and kept his amp and some guitars in his office. Since I was young, I didn't know much about gear, but I fell in love with his amp. It was a Fender Cyber Deluxe amp. I foolishly asked him if he would ever sell that amp to me. He said sure and told me he wanted $650 for it since it was a $1200 amp new. Obviously mom wasn't going to help me out and I had no money so I had to decline. That amp because my first "dream" amp. I had completely forgot about it all the years since but today, I walked into a music store, and to make a long story short, found that same amp on sale for $300 (lightly used) and snagged it on the spot.

EDIT: if anyone is wondering I am using a Schecter C7+ with it (7 string guitar) and an Ibanez RG520qm as well as a hand built cheap strat.

I am a kid on christmas right now! Sorry for the bad picture but the lighting in my studio is horrible!

I know this can't compare to Marc's miracle of finding the exact same amp years later, but this miracle is pretty impressive

^haha good stuff.
Growing up, I'd often go to this convenience store with my mom after we dropped off my siblings at school. I'd always get this little garbage pail filled with some sort of candy. Ended up calling it the "garbage pail store". Hey, I was 5.

Happy Friday everyone! Going to help my dad load the UHaul truck tomorrow for his move to Florida. He is moving to Tampa for work with his girlfriend - kinda surreal since I've been moved out / away from home / at school (etc) for almost 7 years but he was usually close. BUT at least this gives me a reason to visit Florida which always has cheap flights too.

So glad CN decided to join AndroidForums - good job Pup getting him over here! Gotta head over there and say hello.

Also found a sweet new background for my radio last night - check it out!

Yeah, decided to sell the Acer, my wife wanted me to, she even agreed to let me take the laptop for my class on Fridays so my need for the USB port goes away. Plus is tax free weekend, so got the 16gb for $246 out the door from Sam's

Good morning everyone! Happy Friday!! (I know some of you work Saturdays, and maybe even some Sundays, but Friday is traditionally a happy day.)

Am I the only one left without a new toy ? Aka - N7

Heck of a deal Anti! Congrats! You're absolutely going to love that tablet.

Good morning to all! Glad it's Friday!

Has anyone seen the work this one person was doing with the Nexus integrating it into a Dodge Ram dash as an infotainment system?? I forgot where I saw it, so if it was here forgive me for bringing it up again.

Ever have one of those days where you wish you could protect your children just a little longer..especially when you realize that they are having a heck of a time dealing with life? Oye...anyways thanks for letting me vent...just ready for this day to be over...bring on the cheer tomorrow!! Closer to the weekend....I hope!!
Good luck to you and your daughter. The truest expression I know is that a parent its only as happy as their unhappiest child.

Happy Friday everyone. Was a busy trifecta this week. Anniversary followed by son's sixteenth birthday followed by daughter leaving to go back to college.

Still found time to flash CNA with Franco kernel.

Figured I'd let the folks here know about this. May grab a few albums myself.

50 Classic Albums From $2.99

This Sunday marks what has historically been accepted as the anniversary of the invention of the phonograph, and Google Play is proud to present our picks for the 50 albums that defined the vinyl era. These are all bona fide classics, and most are priced at only $2.99.

Morning all! Hope everyone saw the links above, there are some good ones there. Perhaps I'll go back to posting in the afternoons instead of at night? Anyone have input?

Also, a little rant: I was on the way into work this morning, reading the free Boston paper. I was flipping past the gossip page as usual, but something caught my eye. It was a quote from Justin Bieber about the UK's Prince William losing his hair: "I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia. I don't know why he doesn't just get those things. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over there?"

Hate that everything that comes out of that kid's mouth is considered news. Blech.
