I thank all our Vets as well. I have family that spans a few wars and am always humbled by the sacrifices our vets and their families make every day.

And Chief, that is quite an accomplishment to still fit in that uniform! And you look very distinguished.

THANK YOU to all my fellow veterans! And I want to thank all of you for thanking us: I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat if they'd let me!


Chief, very dapper

Very nice pic Chief. And a large thanks to all vets and those who currently serve.

As another note, with the nexus devices launching tomorrow, that probably means 4.2.1 source code should be posted tomorrow or very soon I believe.

Morning all! My new SSD should be here today, my poor wife has been going through Bejeweled withdrawal So will probably be requested to get that set up ASAP tonight. Other than that, not much news on my front.

Yeah she does the facebook one, and is very competitive with her friends for the high score... And she is not happy that the netbook we are using as backup can't play it well enough for her to get a decent score.

P.S. So apparently the New Nexus phone and tablet launched today, and the general concensus is the launch is a complete failure. Google is apparently out of stock on the N4 already, and the N10 page is down on the Google site. It was also supposed to launch at Wal-mart today, but everyone who has gone to the store has left empty handed, saying there is a two week back-order... Maybe the delay of the Galaxy Nexus wasn't ALL Verizon's fault like so many of us were sure of back in the day

Yeah, Anti, looking at the Play store they're still listed as "Coming Soon". WTH, Google? Why can't they get this together?
My only assumption is Apple has patented launching devices timely and successfully.

Good Morning Everyone. Rainy day here as well, hoping it will clear up as we were going to be replacing windows at one of our rentals today. I hate when the weather does not cooperate,lol. I can't believe it is already time for Thanksgiving, what are everyone's plans? We are going to go meet my new nephew in Florida, can't wait!

We are in a quandry on what to do for Thanksgiving. Every plan we have made has fallen through so far, and my work isn't going to let me travel, as I am only getting Thursday and Friday off (have to work saturday). Guess we are just doing a quiet dinner at the house.

Any ideas why the Optimus G still kills the N4 in benchmarks?
Android 4.2 update for Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 adds lock screen widgets and multi-user support (benchmarks) -- Engadget
I thought they were the same internals?

Yay for meeting the new nephew!

My mom does Thanksgiving so we have a houseful. The plus is that DSB is coming so while it'll still be crazy here I have a calming force to turn to.

Happy Tuesday everyone - coffee time!

BTW Nexus 4/10 launch in US at 9AM Pacific Time.

Thanksgiving is going to be split between my family and the girlfriend's family houses. It's always a ton of fun and TONS of food. I am beyond excited.

Actually never had homemade before, but some local dairys' versions.
Maybe I'll give it a shot this year.
BB, ever had a breve? Coffee drinks with steamed half and half. Now that's decadent and super delicious.

Oh good grief...

I sent our gTablet (don't laugh) in for SquareTrade repairs because it wouldn't charge. Well they fixed it alright: they flashed it back to STOCK!

Great - with absolutely NO development for this thing, I'll be hard-pressed to find a ROM for it. Anyway, the Handango gMarket that they sported on this thing as a Google Market alternative is no longer operating, meaning NO APPS!

So - does anyone here have the latest (or at least one) Market .apk that I can try to install on this thing?

By the way: you guys who don't like egg nog are not alone... I can't stand the stuff either...

So - does anyone here have the latest (or at least one) Market .apk that I can try to install on this thing?

By the way: you guys who don't like egg nog are not alone... I can't stand the stuff either...
Here is a link for 3.9.17 - not sure it will work, but worth a shot.

You had it rooted before?

I am just hoping - REALLY HOPING - that when the full 4.2 ROM drops that the old stock 4.1 deskclock will be available as a mod. I personally cannot STAND the 4.2 deskclock...

Maybe I'll give it a shot this year.
BB, ever had a breve? Coffee drinks with steamed half and half. Now that's decadent and super delicious.
I have not but now I'm going to have to find somewhere to get one.

Great - with absolutely NO development for this thing, I'll be hard-pressed to find a ROM for it. Anyway, the Handango gMarket that they sported on this thing as a Google Market alternative is no longer operating, meaning NO APPS!

So - does anyone here have the latest (or at least one) Market .apk that I can try to install on this thing?

By the way: you guys who don't like egg nog are not alone... I can't stand the stuff either...

Another one??!!!!
Sorry about your tablet woes Chief.


And when given a choice I love Dark Kahlua in my eggnog. Yum!

YES I had it rooted and NO the .apk doesn't work but thank you for the link. Google Play installed fine, but it force closes every single time I try to open it.

Now I'll have to root it and flash some stupid FROYO ROM to it because I'm pretty sure that's where development ended for this thing...


EDIT: So the Viewsonic support site says that Google restricted the Android Marketplace to devices 7" or smaller for Android 2.2 and the gTablet is 10". So it looks like I am going to be working to get apps on this thing again

Chief, just convince the wife it's a great time to get a Nexus 10.

BB, you can order them at Starbucks (or most coffee shops). You may get a look though.

That was for the unboxing, on the 19th. Which is why everyone is so sure of the 20th for launch.

Does anyone know of an app that you can use to unlock your phone either by shaking or using the volume rocker? I'm trying to help this guy out but I can't find one in the Play Store that'll work with JB.

If he's rooted it seems that there are a ton of ROMs that have "Volume Rocker Wake" - that would be my first suggestion.

Let me do some other looking otherwise.

Thanks, Stigy. That was my instinct, but the main/most popular app apparently doesn't work above 4.0.

UGH - the Android Market was restricted to 7" devices or smaller for Android 2.2... that i likely why it keeps force closing on me.

So I need a Market .apk from the Nexus 10, or I will have to root again...

I wish people would stop being so uptight. Its a fashion show for poop's sake. If they're so upset over that how come they never make a stink over the myriad of costumes for Halloween that depict Indian women as sexpots??!!!

That phone needs a bigger battery. I don't care about slim phones. I want one that will last all day without having to worry if you are using it too much.
