It's going to be an expensive set of months with wanting to buy 2 phone and a pair of these. Scary thing is that I think my gf would want a pair of it can be integrated with her glasses as well.

Hi Pup

Google had previously said that prescription lenses CAN be fitted into the Glass frame. Which is good, because I have line-less trifocals. Only concern I have is that my distant vision is on top - right where that Glass projects information. My near field is dead center, and reading is on the bottom. I'd really hate to spend 4 digits on something that my eyes can't focus on

Greetings Nexlings!

Does anyone know if SquareTrade is legit? Supposedly I can buy 2 years' coverage with accidental damage protection for $99.

They say they will repair or replace the phone up to 4 times in the 2 years!
Seems a bit too reasonable.

It's subject to a dollar limit if I remember correctly. So 4 repairs possibly, but I think only 1, maybe 2, replacements. I could be wrong though.

Default FYI

Squaretrade does NOT cover your device if lost or stolen, however Verizon's insurance does. So keep that in mind when making your decision.

Yeah, I just read their FAQ's pretty extensively. Seems like they only cover stuff up to the "purchase price" of a phone. Seeing as how my "purchase price" was only $200, it doesn't seem like it would be a good fit.

Oh well.

Do you know if they cover the actual value of the phone ($650), or just what you actually paid at a subsidized rate? The receipt they ask for shows I only paid $200. . .

True. Do you know if you can purchase Verizon insurance as a one-time payment, or do you have to do the $15 a month thing? I'd rather just pay it all on a lump sum.

I'm like 75% sure that my brother and dad use SquareTrade - let me confirm and get back to you.

Sounds very, very familiar though.

I'm pretty careful about keeping my phone in an inside pocket at all times, and I've never lost or had a phone stolen, but I'm worried about breaking it.



So yeah, I went ahead and became a sheep. But I still love you guys and will drop in as often as I can!

Yep, I'm a sucker for torture.

Actually, I've got a bit more in my "gadget fund" and will be saving some for when the Motorola unicorn finally shows up.

I figure having 2 interchangeable toys will be a lot of fun.

"Most complications and outcomes reflect those found in previous breast implant studies including tightening of the area around the implant (capsular contracture), re-operation, implant removal, an uneven appearance (asymmetry), and infection. In addition, investigators observed fissures (cracks) in the gel of some Natrelle 410 implants. This is a characteristic called gel fracture and is unique to this implant."

I don't know about this gel fracture stuff... does it come with a warranty?


EDIT: Don't get me wrong, Ryan... I'm not trying to make light of this. Could have been misconstrued. I'm trying to minimize risk is all

I don't know about this gel fracture stuff... does it come with a warranty?


EDIT: Don't get me wrong, Ryan... I'm not trying to make light of this. Could have been misconstrued. I'm trying to minimize risk is all

I completely agree. Minimize risks is always better....Been a long time coming for a better device.

That said....warranty yes. But choose your surgeon wisely..

It was like winning the gym lottery tonight - the muscle head attendance was low, the TV on the treadmill I picked worked AND Pitch Perfect is the movie of the day! Made the 47 minutes go very quickly.
Only downside was when I walked out of the gym the Nabisco factory is sending out delicious smells of baked yummies. Cruel to put a baked good factory next to a gym!

Reminds me of living near a strip mall in Virginia Beach where there was a bakery/ice cream shoppe right next to the Weight Watchers place. Guess which one DIDN'T close down within a year?

Good Morning all! Ryan, great link to a great approval. I have to agree with you on the surgeon choice, it is critical to a good outcome that the surgeon specializes in breast reconstruction for women post cancer. I myself have been there. I had a double mastectomy almost 7 years ago. I went to a breast surgeon who specialized in breast removal and a plastic surgeon who specialized in re-construction of breasts post cancer. The results have been fantastic! Since the reconstruction, we moved and I switched to Duke University Medical Center. Even the specialists there have all commented on what a great reconstruction I had done and wanted to know who did it. I had silicone implants from Inamed (allergen) and have had none of the potential issues. More important though than the reconstruction is Early Detection. Please Ladies, do not miss your Mammograms! And for you gents out there, make sure the woman in your life get Mammograms as recommended. My cancer was detected early and even thought the current treatment for breast cancer is breast conservation (lumpectomy and radiation), My husband and I opted for the double mastectomy in part because I was only 43. While having cancer is always scary, with the right surgeons, reconstruction was a breeze and made the whole experience an adventure.

Wow, a PS4 reveal without revealing the PS4. It's more vaporware than the Moto X

They showed everything but the system. I'm guessing they are waiting for E3 Expo to show it. I'll be getting one and probably one for my nephew.

I will probably be shipping the new xbox and/or playstation in protest over their attempt at squash the used gaming industry. One of my best friends own a game store and this will might put him or of business. It hurts the whole industry because game prices will probably go up.

Jhawk, you don't think the lack of backwards-compatibility will hurt PS4 sales? I know my son isn't the least bit interested in buying his games all over again... so the PS4 doesn't appeal to him at all. This could backfire big-time on Sony... and they can't afford a backfire. They're on the ropes like Blackberry is.

I don't think it will hurt sales as long as the price is right. The ps3 originally had complete backwards compatibility with ps1 and ps2 games but because the price was so high, it sold terribly.

The no backwards compatibility is not because of they can't do it, but because it's adds expense and because it doesn't support their agenda for crushing the used game industry.

No work for me today. The foot of snow in my driveway and street pretty much shut that down. Of course, none of the aircraft companies are officially closed because they don't want to have to pay people.

he i love snow sent it here to me its upper 30's today so we can same a little bit hehe

i think i am going have to agree with everyone here i think geting rid of backwards compatibility will kill PS... i hope xbox has i(if not ill keep my 360) but i know even to today the 360 is only 200$ and i can still play my old original xbox games on the thing so i don't think have the capability wont add them much of a cost unless they use different game formats in that case there would have to extra readers and software i can see that getting expensive

I would count on the xbox having it because of their joint agenda with game manufacturers (along with Sony) to kill used games. I know for Sony the backwards compatibility was quite expensive for the ps3 because the first gen consoles had that feature, and sold for 500/600 depending on storage space. Then the second gen consoles removed this feature and the price subsequently dropped by like 200 dollars.

They're trying to move in to the online market. By killing off the original disc compatibility they are forcing you to purchase it in their market place. I read an article about this a few months ago.
