ryan,

That does suck. And yes at times it does feel like we are forgotten. The only saving grace for me has been that it is a nexus, so the developers are here and I haven't had to wait long for things to get to us - software wise (even if Verizon isn't giving it to us).

You know, they could at least come to Nashville... I'd drive there...

I am curious to see whether I can show off my 4.2.2 Nexus.. Or not! Lol

Oh well, we will figure something out. Unfortunately in order to get into a lot of the events this week you need a pass.. A $1500 pass. That's a little out of my price range.... So I have to find some of these free events to go to. I am still going to try to get in on some of the fun...

Well here's something new:

I can now beam pictures between my Nexus and my Darling Bride's Galaxy S3! Beams either way now. Maybe that's a Jelly Bean function, or Sammy unlocked that NFC restriction on the S3. Whatever it is, it's awfully nice to have now

Well, I downgraded back to the 4.1.1 radios because I started to get data drops while on them. Because of this, I doubt those radios will be in the OTA. If they are, then Verizonís extensive testing is a huge fraud.

I can't say much: Verizon may be greedy in our opinions and we may know more than most of their reps, but I have never had a problem with their service. When I need Ginny to work, she does. So I'll NOT tell any Verizon jokes.

That's the problem. AFAIK all the major carriers are quite strong around here.

Interesting that you mention NFC here Chief... Had a AHH HAA moment today with 3 Samsung reps at SXSW today...
I went down town today, first day of SXSW. Wanted to see if I could get into a couple of things without the expensive passes, as there were several events open to the public.

The best resulting event I ended up at was one for Samsung. Unfortunately for me the indoor event was pass only, but they are doing all of this Tec Tile advertising all over town this week. Basically scan your Tec Tile app at restaurants or whatever and get something for free or discount.. But at the event location today they had these kiosks outside... Big sign: The Next Big Thing Is Coming... Scan your Tec Tile here.... So I thought, what the hey, I am going to scan my Nexy, you know for grins.. Although we can't install the Tec Tile app... And it worked. Seriously. I think I was as surprised as the rep that was hanging out nearby... Who called over 2 others while I was talking to him. They told me something must be wrong with the kiosk, so don't count on using the coupons anywhere... But they all wanted to see what ROM I was on, how I liked the phone, and how my VZW service was here... They were all carrying Note 2s....it was rather satisfying to say the least...

Then I went and had a free beer at the restaurant down the road. A free beer that I got when I scanned my phone on the scanner at the bar, using one of the coupons from the kiosk. It was a great day..

Then I came home and took a nap... My wife doesn't really understand why I was so excited when I got home.. But I certainly was!

While I was down there, and the real reason I went, was the first event I went to which was a Google Playground event. They had basketball and an obstacle course set up, a couple of booths with Chromebooks talking about the create groups at the local Google offices... The obstacle course and basketball were set up inside of a cleared out coffee shop... For Google Shoe. Simply a Google connected pedometer-like computer, similar to the Nike etc versions out there.. Tracking steps, course, distance, etc and linking to G+.
The other was Smileage... A Google and VW collaboration, being released in June, basically G+ connected through bluetooth to your phone for VW owners, tracking road trips, fun info and G+ social media. It makes the old slug bug games interactive with other drivers in the area, or connects you to family and friends on G+ while on a road trip or vacation so you can get feedback from them, or if noone else is nearby... The car will give you suggestions based on their programming. That is something I might do... Maybe.

Does that mean we aren't supposed to be using the 5 1/4s or the zip drives anymore? Shoot, I need to tell a few computers here a new story...
Morning all. Well had a thunderstorm last night... And the dog freaked out. Never really done that before we came to this house. Anyways, I ended up sleeping on the couch so my wife could sleep in the bed... The dog kept jumping on us during the storm. Frustrating and not so comfortable.. But it's over now and sunny. Should be a great day!

Only once! Damn. When I was younger I had to take a test to get points taken off and had my license taken off me for 30 days. I still drove though

I just remembered I was pulled over in Virginia back in 2010 around 3am driving to a job interview and was doing 70 in a 50. I told him I was going to an interview thinking he'd let me go. Nope.

34 years of driving and I have been pulled over once. I was doing 70 on a 55 highway, crested a hill and stared right at a State Trooper

Needless to say, they don't give warnings. It was a very expensive ticket.

I also flipped over my first car, wasn't speeding. I hydroplaned and ended up down a small hill. A tree stopped me from getting out of car myself and I was about to kick out the windshield but someone showed up.

The cop on scene gave me a speeding ticket. I fought and won.

Whew, I am tired today. Normally daylight savings time start isn't bad until Monday, as the kids don't understand it, and sleep in late so we don't really lose any sleep. But my son fell asleep at 4pm yesterday, and never woke up... Until 5am (4am old time) this morning. So much for that.

Scrape a Diplomat sticker off some car and put it on hers. Then you can claim immunity

Is it true that if one doesn't respond to a ticket from a traffic cam that it just goes away? I've heard that those tickets aren't valid.

Depends on the jurisdiction.

Here, the citizens fought it, so they scored the road to make your tires rumble on approach to the light, claiming that was legally fair warning, same as if you saw an officer watching you.

Don't respond here, and it's deep trouble, and go to court, and they accept no defenses.

Only one is near me for miles around - and I freaking hit it the other night.

First moving violation in 25 years, and any local cop would have let me go. I got distracted when my wife was feeling sick, and there was no one around.

Oh well - it's the law, I can't really argue with that.

Can anyone here, in a brief few words, give me an idea what Pie is? Other than the tasty dessert and not 3.14159, but Pie in Android 4.2.2. JBSourcery has Pie controls, but I'm not sure what they do.


EDIT: Nevermind, I was directed here by the nice folks in the IRC Sourcery room:

Chief,

I think those are the controls where you can maximize the screens real estate, by effectively getting rid of the nav bar (or at least that's how it used to be). And to navigate you clicked on one side of the screen and the controls came up in the shape of a pie, so to speak.

I haven't tried it yet, but I think that's what they mean.

Chief!

Check it out. You know how in the AOSP Internet Browser you can go into settings and turn on pie controls for navigation in that app?

Pie controls allow you to use that same concept to navigate through your phone. It effectively renders your nav bar unnecessary, so I would imagine you can also hide the nav bar in these settings. Then you have a full screen to work with and a nav pie to call up when you need it.

Brb. I have a screen shot I can share with you.



This is from the ICS days but is still applicable. I used a mod for AOKP to remove the nav bar and the nav pie is activated by a bezel gesture, set to your liking in terms of placement and width in relation to the bezel.

Hope that helps.

No offense but I thought you of all people would have known about pie controls. Heck, been using it on and off for about a year!

I seriously let out a chortle reading this post. I am thoroughly impressed with your knowledge and abhorred by your inability to retain it. Your dichotomous nature is confounding. That is all.

Morning all... Wow, a good night and a morning in a row!

Had a little freak out this AM.. Got up about 415ish and my gaming computer would not turn on.. This after spending an hour and a half last night installing a new water cooler... Turns out the plug for the water pump itself did not get plugged in properly.. User error. The fans were plugged, but not the pump. Whew.. Thought I killed the CPU. Oye.
Okay, so now I am awake.
Good Monday Morning... I think.

Ugh, rough morning. Getting up at 4:30 is bad enough without my body telling me it is 3:30. Coffee is my friend.

Good morning all - ugh, Mondays.

Woke up this morning to my newly installed 5.1 bootlooping - really weird. Not sure how long it was doing it for. I pulled it off the charger, pulled the battery and it was fine.

Totally clean install and only user apps/data restored from before.

But that's over two nights combined. So even though it's sleep, it's not a lot. Only 4-5 a night.

After years of averaging 4 hours and many days of being up 24+ hours, I love getting 7-9 hours of sleep I get now. However, I don't enjoy getting up at 10. And any later than that then the day would just feel wasted.
