That looks... just awful. I 100% agree that the dude's twig and berries look quite squished, and being bent over like that would kill your back. I can't imagine ever being comfortable in something like that, not to mention that if you're going down a steep hill and picking up velocity, you would kill the hell out of your feet if you put them down.

Didn't make me regret my N7 purchase and I don't have device envy, so I guess I would still by the N7.

It looks good, but I love stock android, and not a twinge of envy for me either.

So buying my wife the RAZR M next week. Which means I will be keeping the Nexus until next May. I am grateful I have not had any serious phone envy yet, but I am afraid that is about to end

Yeah I think I may see my bank account decrease by $119 for this bad boy - the screen looks incredible from their review. It just bothers me I can get one without the light for just about half the price.

Does anyone know how easy/difficult it is to get your own eBooks onto a Kindle?

Hear ya. We eventually cancelled our DVD subscription since we just streamed everything. The selection is always evolving and we can usually find something to watch.

On another note...all of our wedding plans are falling into place. Looks like we only have the rest of the music to figure out...but almost everything else is done. Woo Hoo!!!!

Hope everyone is having a great-short week!!
Good luck Ryan. I've heard nothing but great things about Austin. The kids....
That's a tough one....

I think its a mostly simple conversion and transfer to the Kindle but its been so long since I read how I'd have to search for the exact instructions.

Just flew over BB's house on the way to EWR airport!! I waved. Checking our daughter into her dorm at The Joffrey Ballet. You regulars may remember our decision dilemma back in March and we decided to not pass up the opportunity and life experience for her. Still scary for a parent to let loose a 16-year-old in NYC. I wish NYC the best of luck with this one. ;-)

I remember that clearly.

I commend you on the attitude shift - watch out NYC!!

BTW - satellite photos confirm that no one looked up and waved at me during that fly by. No matter, I do have spare oxygen.

Does anyone know how easy/difficult it is to get your own eBooks onto a Kindle?

Kindle Paperwhite Hands On: What a Beautiful Screen
Easiest way is a program called Calibre. As long as it contains no DRM then it will convert from most formats to .MOBI which is what the Kindle family uses.

You could also upload to Amazon's servers and it will convert it for you.

Haha, I will be happy to participate, but I will not be getting a Nexus on release day this time around, giving up my only chance to my wife, since her Droid 3 died, and it doesn't matter that she was still under warranty, she wants a new phone every time her original phone dies .

Default Very Large Walking Stick

Well, look what hitched a ride to work with me. A very large walking stick. I'm guessing it was around 7" long and ugly (and cool) as hell.

Welcome to one of the worst airports in the world!
Glad you made it ok ! And good luck to all of you.

It must be the odd weather. I actually saw another one a few weeks ago and it has been years since I had seen one. This pic is the one from a few weeks ago. Not as large, but this is the type I remember seeing as a kid.

Yep, you were post #25 out of 88,756. Pretty cool. I didn't jump in until much, much later.

The thing I noticed most odd about that thread was that the avatar of one poster seemed to change every time I logged on. When I first started following the thread she had this "dominatrix" theme going on and I was just a little worried.

Since then I've learned she's all talk and no action.

Haha, post #2 wasn't until 5832, and post #3 wasn't until 8224... But then it was off to the races

Sounds like our good Captain would like you to put your money where your mouth is, BB.

Or, perhaps your mouth where his... *cough* never mind

Funny. There was a praying mantis at work the other day. Me and the other guy standing there started talking about walking sticks. I don't remember the last time I saw one?

Ok. So waiting for the piece to the hitch to be delivered before I can leave today and am catching up on Facebook crap. There is a page called Interesting Places that has some really awesome pics. Today though I had to chuckle. In New Zealand there is a place called Hooker Valley Track.

I rarely look at g+ from my phone or iPad since they changed the way it looks. I kinda dislike it with a passion. So I look when I am using the laptop which is kinda rare lately.

I love the interface for the phone and tablet, but HATE it for the iPad. Functionality is next to nothing on the iPad. You can't even block users from it that I can find. You can go to their profile and click block from the Android app.

I'm 99% certain that the guy named in the article (Michael "Haveblue" Guslick) is a guy I used to know pretty well on the Focus forums I used to be a member of.

Dirty dishes, what dirty dishes, I don't see any dirty dishes. Oh, and the trash will all fit in the bag when I pull it out of the bucket.
