Hey Geek, I have tried a lot of the bible apps and devotionals available and have been disappointed in most (still nothing like my bible i have carried since a teenager). But, I really would like to have an e-version on my Nexie. What do you like about the Tecarta apps over others?

I like the you-version one myself, mainly because of the read aloud feature, I can listen in my car on the way to work.

Morning Anti, that is the one i am currently using. The Tecarta one for NIV is 9.99, seems a bit high but i am willing to spend it for the right app. I just wonder what the difference might be.

Maybe Tmo will turn on LTE in our area... or for that matter, ANYBODY but Verizon. They really have me over a barrel here as the ONLY provider with any signal to speak of.

If T-Mobile turns on lte in the roc, and there is no conflict using their unlimited data plan with the Lte network, they might be able to steal me from Verizon. Finally get out from the clutches of cdma control.

Hey Chief, we are somewhat in the same boat. Verizon is the only truly reliable carrier here in NC, more so in the mountains than at the coast but even at the coast it is by far the best. Would love to see more reliable competition, we switched from sprint to Verizon because of the better coverage about 6 years ago.

Copacetic, the Tecarta ones have the read aloud feature as well. I suggest downloading the KJV version, which is free I think, see if you like it and then download the NIV addon. I can't remember why I went with Tecarta over the Youversion, but there was a significant reason, because I did try the Youversion. It has day and night mode, which I leave in night mode all the time for the dark background and light text. Several versions available for offline use (I think that was a sticking point with others for me because they didn't have a specific version for offline use that I used) Several available add-ons, like different translations, commentaries, study Bibles, devotionals, etc for it. I absolutely LOVE this feature, though it's more for tablet use, is the ability to bring up 2 different versions or a version and the commentary side by side on the screen and individualy scroll each one. Like I said, give the KJV a try because I believe it's free and see what you think. Play with all the options and features and I really think you'll like it.


T-MO disussion:
I really like the direction they are heading. More LTE, cheaper plans with unsubsidized phones, option to tack on a monthly payment for the phone or pay it all up front. I absolutely love that because it allows us to better control what we pay month to month instead of letting carriers overcharge us for plans to make up for the subsidy.

Edit: Happy Birthday Dread!!!

Thanks Geek, that is a great idea as i always like to cross with KJV as well. My hard copy is a NASB Ryrie study bible. I have been using the NIV on my phone bc it seems like it is the more commonly used version in so many areas and i wanted a reference to what they were quoting. However, I find the NASB is more literal and the NIV is more of a concept translation with better flow. Thus the thoughts on putting NIV on the Nexie and having the NASB for study. I think I will give the KJV version a try and see what it is all about.

Yeah, the NIV is pretty common in most areas. I grew up on the original KJV so I usually cross the NIV with the KJV because sometimes the translation is pretty different.

So I found out last night I could trade in my PS3 at Gamestop for a pre-owned XBox360 and add on the 1 year warranty straight up. Crazy. Think I'm going to take them up on that offer this weekend, especially since I sold my Guitar Hero guitars for $50 last night to someone on Craigslist. That should get me enough to get the 360 and a kinect almost. I'll have to purchase a new blu-ray player, but that'll be ok. They're cheap enough now.

My dad called me this morning from work apparently "remembered" my birthday because he saw some bit on tv about Pearl Harbor Day.
Easiest way to remember it.

Yeah, kind of like my sister. She was born November 22, 1963. Hard to forget if you're of that era.

So many dates to keep track of, it's hard to even keep the US Military history dates straight, now keep all the Presidential Assassination dates, yeah, that list gets large very fast.

I think you should be excused for not knowing exactly what each date refers to, if you weren't say age 7-8+ at the time it happened.

The first thing I did this morning I called my wife to remind her to put out our flag for Pearl Harbor day.

But major kudos Treo for remembering that Dreads birthday was today!

It's amazing to me that there are kids in middle school who have no living memory of 9/11. It happened before they were born. Just blows my mind, too, that the last Apollo mission to the moon, Apollo 17, was launched 40 years ago today.

Certainly wasn't around to remember Pearl Harbor. Hell, I was a junior in high school when 9/11 occurred. Tragedy either way. And, it looks like pretty much all flags around DC are half staff.

My earliest disaster or major event memory was hurricane Andrew. I was 8. I think that's about the age that awareness of the world outside of your own personal experience starts occurring.

Age 8, hmmm. Looking into '92. Interesting events:
-Bush vomits into the lap of the Japanese PM.
-Jeffrey Dahmer sentenced to life in prison.
-Clinton wins presidential election
-Hurricane Andrew hits, kills 23.
-Earthquake in Nicaragua kills 116

Wiki is fun.
Can't say I recall any of these events in real time though.

I vividly recall Hurricane Andrew and I was 8 as well. My real name is Andrew so I associated with that event in that way and I think that's when my fascination with hurricanes really took off as well.

Eventhough I wasn't alive for Pearl Harbor, D-day, Kennedy assassination, etc...I do not excuse myself for not knowing the dates of those events. If you ask me when Pearl Harbor took place, I can tell you, but it doesn't always dawn on me on the day of the anniversary until I hear or see something in the news about it.

Now 9/11, I think about it about a week or sometimes a month in advance. That day, the events, the emotions, etc are absolutely burned into my mind and I don't think they'll ever go away. I'm sure that's how those who were alive for Pearl Harbor feel. My wife is more amazed year after year with how little her 4th grade students know about 9/11, but then she reminds herself they weren't even born yet.

EDIT: The one historical event that I'm extremely ticked off that I missed was Halley's Comet. I'll be 74 if I live to see the next one.

The next predicted perihelion of Halley's Comet is 28 July 2061,[1] when it is expected to be better positioned for observation than during the 19851986 apparition, as it will be on the same side of the Sun as Earth.[29] It is expected to have an apparent magnitude of −0.3, compared with only +2.1 for the 1986 apparition.[99] On 9 September 2060, Halley has been calculated to pass within 0.98 AU (147,000,000 km) of Jupiter, and then on 20 August 2061, pass within 0.0543 AU (8,120,000 km) of Venus.[100] In 2134, Halley is expected to pass within 0.09 AU (13,000,000 km) of the Earth.[100] Its apparent magnitude is expected to be −2.0.[99]

My bad, I mis-calculated. I'll be 77 according to that date. If it's 76 years between occurences, I'll be 78. I subtracted 2 instead of adding 2. :P

The one time I want to set my alarm for a nap, the clock crashes on Sourcery. Time for a new ROM.

Odd, I just set the alarm for one minute out and it went off without crashing anything... Sorry you had a problem

Downloaded an app and thankfully woke up in time (hey, I deserved a nap!).
Clock is still crashing.
I'll give it some more work tomorrow, on my first consecutive day off in FOREVER!

I use Alarm Clock Extreme with Sourcery all the time and haven't had a problem dread.

I'm enjoying SwiftKey Flow, but I do miss the shortcuts of SlideIt.

Happy Saturday for those of you who have the day off.

Everyone see that Google Now is coming to PC Chrome browers? Pretty cool.
Personally, I don't rely on it for much but it's certainly handy for some situations.

SwiftKey Flow works great...except it does NOT function within search and address bars. Kind of WTF. Known bug in the beta. Hope they fix it in release version.

Google Now is a pretty cool feature, but I don't think it's quite worth the battery drain that comes with it. I gain almost 1 1/2 hours of battery life by not even activating it after a rom flash.

Works in Google Now but not in IRL bars. Interesting.

Yeah, I was surprised to see the bug myself. I use to be such a wiz with swyping, but became complacent in normal typing after it took swype so long to get out an ICS compatible version. Now I'm no longer fast with it.

Never was (and probably never will be) a swyper. Can type just fine with Swiftkey and two fingers. Glad to see SK still developing and upgrading like crazy though.

I didn't like Swype either but I am getting used to Flow in a hurry. I'm loving in ways I never thought I would

I think I used swype so much in my earlier days because my original devices are samsung skinned phones using the samsung keyboard that was horrible back in the day. I was also too cheap to buy any app other than Titanium Backup Pro, so I stuck to free apps like swype beta. I have since changed my philosophy and am willing to buy apps and games if I feel they are worth it, and will probably buy the real version of Flow when it hits the market.
