8k??? HOLY COW! Congrats!

Edit: Off-topic: I just got an e-mail from the user who identified a bug in my app saying my latest update had fixed it. She went to the Play Store and gave the app 5-stars and left a positive comment about the app and my willingness to work with her to resolve the bug. Things like that absolutely make my day

Yeah I can't believe its 4PM already.

I'm not sure if I ever posted this, but just wanted to show you something cool the lady and I made over the weekend. Basically she was tracking the DIY tag on tumblr and came across this DIY dry-erase calendar. I'll link below, but the concept is that you take a poster frame and take it apart and on the cardboard insert inside you glue fabric of your choice. Then you take paint samples from Walmart / Home Depot / etc (we took 49 - 7 of each color). Then you glue these onto the fabric into a calendar type arrangement and then one extra for day of the week, which you write on the paint sample. Then you assemble the frame again and because the front of the frame is plastic you can write on it and it will act like a dry-erase board and you have a calendar for all months!

That calendar idea is cool. It would be nice to have one color coordinated with our kitchen.

Last year we almost had a phone called the "Nexus Prime," this year we almost had a phone called the "Optimus Nexus." I think it's safe to guess that the people involved with making these devices are Transformers fans.

Well it's that time of the year again, just got my flu shot. It's always nice when you get someone who knows just to jam it in there. Didn't even feel it.

Of course a couple years ago I had a syringe malfunction, when the nurse pushed the plunger down, the Vaccine sprayed out the sides. Had to get a second one in my other arm. Fun.

Arrrgghhhh. Bricked my nexus!

Was upgrading from AOKP 37 to jelly bean build 2, and right at the end it flashed you do not have "superuser" status, then rolled over and kicked twice.

I've tried recovery, rebooting a few dozen. Now I'm stuck in boot loop with AOKP animation that won't go away.

Anyone point me to a good guide on how to unbrick?

Pretty please?

Good morning everyone - happy Wednesday.

iPhone 5 reviews are coming in and they are looking pretty good - I hope that Google figures out this battery life thing because with LTE on that is insane. iPhone 5 review -- Engadget

PS: mmmm pumpkin spice latte.

PPS: Clouds are awesome.

Stig, I love seeing your pictures of the Manhattan skyline. The new Trade Center tower is progressing along nicely. Hope I can talk the wife into coming back when it is complete. We were there just a couple of months before the memorial opened so I want to see it as well.

Have you used the galaxy nexus toolkit over at XDA? It's an aio program, it should get you started back on the right track.

Have you tried "adb reboot bootloader" or "adb reboot recovery" to get into bootloader or recovery? If so what happens there?

Let us know.

In addition there are real capacitive buttons for back, home, and menu (not task switcher) at the very bottom. The backside is a slick unbroken surface but has a textured appearance below a reflective grid appearance which LG calls Crystal Reflection."

- Capacitive buttons? For what? And not even a multitask button?
- Also, the description of the backside makes me think that the battery may not be removable.

These are the only two criticisms that I can think of; otherwise, this phone sounds fantastic. I'm particularly impressed by the battery technology LG has introduced (see here, #3)

I haven't had a flu shot in probably 15 years.

The Note II has been announced for all 4 carriers. I imagine Verizon's will have a locked bootloader.

Microsoft Security Essentials is my new favorite A/V client. One of the best pieces of software Microsoft has made. I will recommend it to anyone.
