Anyone have any BT stereo headsets? I found my old Motorola S9 headset and charged it up and using it right now. I was never crazy about them before but now... I'm actually loving them. I use headphones a lot and not having a cord is nice.

Also, I've heard about problems with Bluetooth and the GNex on 4.1 & 4.2... not seeing any issues with the S9.

I never had a problem with bluetooth on my GNex. Which is good because I love my bluetooth headphones.

Scouring the Pebble forums to see how shipping is going. Also, some discussion on swapping out the watch bands. Saw some great ideas.

I am going to ask for a pebble for my birthday if the reviews are good. Although can you connect more than one bluetooth device at a time? I have never seen a definitive answer on that.

No idea! Actually, I'm going into it as a complete noob. Just looking for some new tech.
What I'm more concerned about is whether I can control Rhapsody with the watch. It's pretty open ended on what third party music apps can be controlled.
Also, the other thing is how far I can stray from my phone for BT to work. The Gnex has 3.0 correct? I don't carry my phone at work, keep it in the office in the basement. Just wondering how far I can go before I lose signal.

Hey UBR, the Bluetooth issue with 4.1 seems to have been corrected with 4.2. I have two Bluetooth headsets: A Kinivo BTH-220 which sounds phenomenal but keeps dropping connection ($20, you get what you pay for); and Rocketfish RF-MAB2 headset which sounds very good in MeX mode, lasts all day on a charge, and stays connected. Highly recommended.

Dread, range all depends on the strength of the headset's radios. My Motorola S10s would reach out 100 feet; my Rocketfish can go half that maybe.

Thanks Chief. I was thinking that the issue might have been a hardware problem rather than software. Never tried BT on 4.1 with the exception of my car radio and couldn't ever tell if I dropped calls because of BT issues or just spotty reception (my drive everyday takes me from solid 4G to 3G to no signal at all).

I remember the last time I used my S9 headset. I was using the Thunderbolt and if I put the phone in my pocked, the BT signal was disconnected. I thought the headset was to blame...looks like it might have been the TBolt instead because I am getting great range with my GNex and especially with my Transformer TF101.

Having your weekends in the middle of the week really sucks. For a company that said it wants to be more family oriented, what the deuce am I supposed to on Tuesday and Wednesday? Most girls will think you are joking when asked, "hey,wanna go on a date Wednesday?"

My days off will get switched again in late April but definitely in May. And I'll more than likely get bounced around for a bit until I'm able to bid/hold a job in the shop. I really hope that job will have Fri., Sat or Sat., Sun. My chances at Sat., Sun. are slim to none for awhile because of all the people above me.

I'm going to miss this show. I'd say X-files, Lost, Wonder Years and Fringe have been the best TV shows(excluding animated), for me.

After watching the review for the Pebble smart watch on The Verge, I have this to say...I saw articles about a thing called the Htc Mini that is a remote for your phone and the Pebble smart watch, in my eyes, is the same thing. I laughed at both.

Hopefully this week will slow down some and I'll be able to be active again.

Hey all my fellow Gnexers. I am going to be purchasing a Nexus 7 soon and wanted to pick the brains of those of you have gone down this road. I need to get a case for it that can help protect it from a 5 & 7 year old.

Any advice?

Don't look for advice from me. Mine is smashed and my five year old son's is in mint condition.

Morning everyone!

My carpool partner woke up late, so I had to drive myself into work. So annoying, I wanted to snooze some more. Oh well.

I hope no one in the Midwest was affected by the storms last night. Supposed to come through here starting around 6pm tonight.

Welcome back BB! Hope all is settling down..

So we came home to a nasty surprise last night. We had a short thunder storm in the afternoon.. Apparently our dog did not like it. And he ended up busting through a fence and got out of the yard... We looked for over 2 hours before we found him curled up under a tree, on the side of a very busy road, more than 6 blocks away from home. Was not acting normal, so we took him to the vet. Apparently did not break anything, but it looks like he was actually hit by a car. Some minor surface bruising, and deeper bruising and shock injuries. He stayed overnight at the emergency clinic, now I am sitting outside the vets so I can drop him off for the day. Needs to be observed and have pain medication administered. Poor guy. And my wife was basically losing it over the whole thing. Hard to stay calm about it at all. Hopefully he will be up and his normal self soon... But since he is an Australian Shepard, his favorite constant activity is to play ball... Going to have to put the kabash on that for a while. Oh and I have to seal up the yard too. No idea how I am going to do that tho... The fences are ancient.

Anyways, happy Hump day all. Hope everyone is having a good week.

Hi all - just stopping in to say hi.

I can't believe how busy work has got for me, but looks like I will have some downtime this afternoon to get on and chat for a bit.

BTW my Pebble is listed as being ready and they asked me to confirm my address. Hopefully this means I will have my watch next week, yay!

I haven't gotten anything from them but did go into my account to confirm everything. Crossing my fingers.

If you go into https://account.getpebble.com/order/summary you are still on Step #1?

Mine was like that until last night when I got the email about confirming my address.

When did you back? Mine was April 12th at around 3PM.

Sorry to hear that Ryan, but glad you found him, and glad he was not more seriously injured! Hope he has a quick recovery.

I didn't back until the first week of May and I chose a white one, so it could be a while. I believe the black ones are shipping first.

According to their Twitter they are trying to cycle colors to match the backer demand - they should mostly ship out in backer order.

I slow cooked chicken in salsa all day until it fell apart. Stuffed it into a pita pocket with Mexican rice and cheese. Mmm Mmm good

Ooh, that sounds good. Add a few black beans, sour cream, and guac and it would be delicious.
