I thought about the DNA. The Note 2 has 3100mah battery and the DNA has a 2100mah battery, I just can't see it lasting very long. AND it is non removable.

I think the note is probably a better choice for battery life. BUT, having LTE on the SOC is totally different than the setups we run now, might do big things for battery.

Morning all - back in the office today.

Received an email from my boss asking me to stop in today. I know there are a bunch of layoffs going on and I am not sure whether or not to be concerned.

My mood might change drastically at 1:30PM today - but hoping for the best.

Yeah, the Note 2 looks pretty sweet too, and who knows how nice having that S-Pen would be... Plus no storage worries either for the Note 2... But the Note 2 I would wait a while to see the verdict on radios. If they are the same as the S3, not gonna work for me.

Stigy - good luck man, I hate that feeling, hopefully its something else!

BTW loaded Ubuntu 12.10 on my 6-year old laptop and it runs like a champ. Trying to setup Eclipse so I can do app development on the go and sync via GIT, but setting up two instances of Eclipse with the same settings is becoming quite the task.

Indeed. It took me several days of working on it off and on to get my development workspace set up on my desktop and laptop and have it the same. I don't sync on GIT though, never tried it and wouldn't have a clue how to...probably should learn though.


BTW...had a horrible nightmare last night and I just remembered it... I dreamed I went and bought and iPhone 5! *shudder* THE HORROR!!!

So all is well - no layoff. Just being moved into a different group with new (and more) responsibilities and challenges along the way.

Definitely an exciting experience and in my mind a mini-promotion (without title, etc).

Good morning all - happy almost Friday!

Seems that 4.2 natively supports iOS group messaging - I wonder if they do it the same way its done in custom ROMs. But anyway I'm thinking about going stock 4.2 for a while until Sourcery or CNA do a 4.2 ROM. With the quick settings pulldown I think I would be pretty much fine since 4.2 seems to be amazing.

The ONLY ONLY thing I'd miss is the Quick PIN Unlock where I don't have to hit "Ok" to unlock the screen after entering my PIN.

Wow, what a crappy weather day here... 45 and pouring rain at the moment. These kind of days you wish you could stay in bed.

Morning all.
Hope everyone is Coasting along this Thursday... Almost a Friday! Sunsets are beautiful here, definitely going to miss the sunsets over the ocean views!
Had a nice birthday dinner for the wife at a local seafood restaurant this week, going out to dinner Friday night with some family friends we have not seen for a while, and going for a 3hr sail this Saturday... Just the wife and a double date with her sister and her boyfriend... BYOB, so that should be fun.
Otherwise... Work is interesting.
Since the move to Austin was announced, management decided to hire a new group, give them time to catch up so we have a smooth transition next month... Except that this is the slowest time of the year. So now, the new group has been given all the backlog, finished it, taking stuff from our desks to learn it... And now we are bored. Not sure how well that will go over for the last 3 people who are just coasting out till the severance. And both my wife and I will be taking about 2 weeks off at Christmas for the move... Here's us hoping the new group will be trained enough to back us up by then.
Morning all!

Hope you find Texas welcoming. I moved here from OC California 6 years ago. The biggest issue for me was the food (aside from the weather). "Mexican food" especially is a quandary of processed cheese and unseasoned meat. They even have their own name for it "Tex-Mex". Anyway, I ride my bike almost every year from Houston to Austin. I love it up there. Many more things to get you moving outside. Well, I hope you enjoy it here. It has become my home rather quickly .

Isn't that the truth? I know there is some good knowledge over there, but I much prefer the friendly atmosphere of AF.

I'm sure the quality of this place is due to all our great guides and mods.

I just love wasting gas each morning to heat up my car because it's frozen over . Such a waste.

Kim... Thanks for the welcome! And funny thing... Some of our coworkers that have gone out to visit have said the same thing about the Text Mex... We are trying to get our fill of our local Mexican food before we leave!! Lol!
We are looking forward to it... Really... Its just always hard to pick up and move away from family... But I am sure we will make new friends quickly and enjoy the area!
