Good morning all and happy Monday. Dirty chai tea latte should help me get through part of the morning, hopefully.

Nice relaxing weekend even with the Jets loss, but oh well. Need to figure out a new issue with the car - stupid fans are staying on so hoping its nothing terribly expensive. Otherwise got the new headlights in and what a difference they make - I can finally see at night!

My N7 is still stock. Nothing compelling me to change it as it does what I want out of the box.

I just found this on NBCNews.com and figured I would share. It isn't often that the big news organizations don't fawn over iOS.

10 ways Android beats the iPhone 5 - GadgetBox on NBCNews.com
B2 looks pretty good and is up to my expectations for AOKP. The only thing that doesn't work that I really need is the backlight settings. For some reason, no ROM I have tried has functioning ability to change backlight levels.

And you're right about major news outlets fawning over the iDevices...they always have. Kind of a shock to see one say Android beats an iDevice in any way.

Negative. Care to share?


Side note: College football: Glad to see that the second supposed challenger to SEC dominance fell this week at the hands of Stanford. Michigan goes down in week 1, USC in week 3. Now I want to see who ESPN picks next and starts voting up in the polls to challenge the SEC.

Sorry for the delay, Copacetic, just VERY busy IRL these days...

2.3 is pretty nice, the same cleaned up Tools menu from 2.2.4, running Lean Kernel and otherwise, I haven't really had time to find anything new. But it's nice to be on the bleeding edge

On a whole other note:

This should be positively SPECTACULAR - can't wait to watch it!

Halon brother, I think you will not regret wiping that phone and hopping up to 2.3

I backed up everything (apps, data, call log, messages) in TiBU and wiped away. I was up & running again inside 45 minutes... and that includes setting all my ringtones and stuff back up.

Cheif, seriously let me know if the 3D on that is worth it. We'll be getting a 3D enabled TV mostly likely pretty soon and I would like to know if 3D is worth it firstly, and what movies are worth buying in 3D secondly. Also just assuming my PS3 is 3D capable...I think they are.

BTW just grabbed these from eBay after reading an XDA thread - for $13 even if the quality is meh it'll still be cool to have. Didn't want to drop $50 on the Photojojo ones because not sure how much I would use them.

Geek, I am IN LOVE with my 3DTV. I have never owned a more versatile and gorgeous piece of gear ( other then Ginny my Nexus ).

The Samsung UN55D8000 is 1080p, 3D, and wirelessly connects to the Internet via my N-speed home wifi router. It has about a 1/3" bezel: so the picture just jumps out at you. It is their premiere TV and has a price tag to go with it... but I would advise you save your pennies up for Black Friday.

My deal:






As far as 3D movies go, there are TWO that you absolutely, positively need to see in 3D: Hugo (out now and simply astounding) and Avatar (on pre-order for release next month).

Titanic will be watched by us VERY soon - likely this weekend -but is getting great reviews: Since it wasn't shot in 3D it's not popping-out, in-your-face type stuff, but rather it adds subtle depth and clarity. The movie was scanned in 4K and then color-corrected, THEN 3D processed... so it should look stunning.

I personally like Cave of Forgotten Dreams, a Werner Herzog documentary about the paintings in Chauvet Cave, France, which represent the oldest human art in the world at 35,000 years old! My only complaint to THAT movie is that it's about 30 minutes too long... but I understand that he really wanted to capture it well, considering the extraordinary security surrounding the cave (to protect the paintings from damage or even mold caused by human breath) and the likelihood that he would never get back in there again.

That's about it as far as must-see stuff I've found. We have Tron Legacy and Megamind in 3D... but really GOOD movies, in really GOOD 3D, are sparse but growing in number. I'll let you know how Titanic looks when we watch it.

Afternoon all, flashed 2.3 last night. So far all is great. The biggest pain to me about flashing is having to set up all the home screens again (TIBU takes case of everything else). That is until I discovered apex let's you back up your home screens...Woot! After flashing I was all set back up in about 20 minutes.

Chief, the only problem I'm running into with deal shopping and waiting till thanksgiving is I'm looking at two specific series of tvs. The Panasonic P50st50/gt50 or the Samsung PN51e6500/7000. All of those are becoming more scarce by the day

Alright, I got plenty of time to hang out in front of the computer and money I shouldn't spend.
Guess I'm in?

Perhaps I will too. Wife and I don't give eachother Xmas gifts out of a savings of money, but I suppose the rest of my family will probably want something.

I'm going to take a second to rant. Please ignore if you don't want to read a rant and if you do read it, it isn't directed at you. It's not directed at anyone here, just general people we run into on an almost daily basis.






On another note. That cold front pushed through and todays highs are in the low 70's and lows tonight in the mid 40's! Fall is here

Yep, pretty crappy weather here in DC. Guess I can finally use my new rain jacket?

Might go see Sleepwalk with Me today"
Sleepwalk With Me Trailer - IFC Entertainment
Looks like fun and as a This American Life fan (who doesn't love Ira Glass?), think it'll be pretty good.

You've done your research and I don't want to diss your due diligence, Geek, but if I may throw something in there about plasma:

Plasma is nice, but IMO it was a gap-filler technology at the time because LED screens couldn't be produced above a certain size. Plasmas are heavier, run hotter and are FAR more power-hungry: so please keep power consumption in mind when choosing a TV. Our LED TV's on night and day; and it costs just a dollar or two a month to run.

Unless, that is, you plan to sit at an extreme angle to the TV rather in front of it... in which case plasma rules the roost.

But it's your choice in the end, Geek; and regardless of the technology, you'll love the end result. Sounds like you're ready to make the leap into 3D and I say GO FOR IT!






Okay, enough about 3DTV so early in the morning... BTW hi Gnexers!

Hence the hiding/show Chief!!!

I must say I feel comfortable with this group to even say those things "out loud"....

Hope everyone has a great day!!!!

Today is the day we notify our management:

We are choosing to go to Austin.

But.....basically what that choice means to us is this: the company will not fill our positions in Austin. We still have until January 1, before we report to Austin. If we find that PERFECT job between now and December that keeps us here....they will get our resignations if it comes to that (which they understand...and partially accept/are willing to discuss at least), otherwise the weekend of the end of December...we move to Austin.

Difficult decision...yes. perfect solution....no. best option...maybe....a better option than unemployment....definitely.

A few responses to your points, Chief. I honestly think LED and Plasma are both gap-filler techs until large OLEDs come along. That being said, back to the Plasma/LED debate.

The only LED tvs that can match the picture quality of a good Plasma are full-array local dimming LED sets which are much more power hungry than the edge-lit LEDs (and thus not many out there). Still less than Plasma, but the energy efficiency reasoning gets cut drastically there. Besides, I make tons of power here at work

Secondly, even the best full-array local-dimming sets experience some blooming and picture issues if there isn't some really good processing going on to control that dimming. By the time you get to that level of quality you're looking at a $2,500+ TV. The Panasonic and Samsung models I'm looking at have some of the best picture quality ratings ever and are in the $1,000-$1,500 price range now Hence the reason I'm looking at those. My only concern about going plasma is when we sell our current house and get our new one built and moved in it. It's going to be much better lit with ambient lighting than our current house and I worry a little about the picture getting washed out, but the models I'm looking at handle it fairly well and are some of the brigher plasmas out there. I'll just have to make sure we get some blinds to block out that ambient light if watching during the day (which is rare).

Bottom line: I'm going for the best picture quality bang for my buck. Plasma is a no-brainer.

Glad to hear it. And your decision is sound.

Just as an aside, our 3DTV is local micro-dimming and back-lit, all the bells and whistles, with a retail price tag of $3600. Hence my shock when Amazon had it for $1935 shipped. I agree that OLED will be the way to go... but that will be the 4KTV you & I will be buying in about 5-6 years

Let me know how you like your 3DTV when it comes in!

Will do Still holding off but I probably might as well bite the bullet and go buy it. I don't foresee either getting much cheaper in the next month or two.

FYI folks. Tomorrow is Talk Like A Pirate Day. Anyone who goes to your nearest participating Krispy Kreme and talks like a Pirate, gets a free glazed doughnut. To anyone that dares to go extreme and dress like a pirate, they will give a whole dozen for free!
