You mean where Verizon turned down the One, couldn't be bothered telling their customers, so HTC had to tell them, and then the blogosphere went all negative and got pissed off at HTC over Verizon's decision? You mean that one?

Yeah, why would they delete that?

I've seen so much conflicting info on this, I don't even want to think about it. I'll give Verizon this, whether through design or complete incompetence, their obfuscation skills are unmatched among carriers.

All of the players in this business just make me crazy.

I should go with T-Mobile.

Then I can ride a pink motorcycle from coast to coast and never lose my 4G signal.

Sorry. I just couldn't resist.

Yes, 4K UltraHD video is coming to Android devices this year | Android and Me

Wow. The speed at which phones are advancing now is just crazy. 4K is pretty much brand new. How long before holograms coming out of the screen?

My cousin just messaged me on Facebook saying he got an iPhone today after having Android for a few years. I told him go with what you like but I think you hit your head or something.

Soon I'll be deleting itunes from my laptop and I have to think of something destructive to do with my iphone 3G that I have been using as a music player since 2009.

Hi everyone!

Hoo boy, the joys of aging gracefully: even acting as young as I do, I can't escape the inevitable colonoscopy this morning. Prep yesterday was... an adventure, to say the least.

I trust your day will go better than mine

Hi folks - I'm back and better than ever! My grandma had colon cancer and wore a colostomy bag for decades. I vowed to do everything in my power to avoid that fate, and this test was one of those things.

The verdict: 100% clean and no more tests like that for 10 years!

Yes, the prep really rect me! WOW what a miserable two days that was...

The test itself...






Anyway, if you're 50+ and haven't had a colonoscopy, GET ONE. Colon Cancer is a major killer and we'd like to keep you around awhile

The screen matches the look of my N7, so I like that. I'm also digging the 2GB of RAM. It is a noticeable difference.

I'm gonna run it stock for a while I think...we'll see...

In still running stock as I love it so much. Which surprised me as I usually flash something fairly soon after I get a device but hey this thing is special.

Yep the 2gb if ram us a nice addition.

You are more than welcome. I may not even wind up with a Nexus (though it's more than likely) but I'm tired of VZW prices and policies.

I am on the T-Mobile Value plan. 2 lines for 100 bucks with my wife's Starbucks discount. Pretty awesome.

EFT was 390 for two lines. I don't care cos were saving 80 bucks a month.

So I downloaded Keep. Pretty excited about that. It's exactly how I keep track of stuff at work, albeit with post it notes.

With all the Google services I use, a nexus would be ideal for me if not for the very useful s pen

Thanks for all the well wishes and congrats, folks!

We would LOVE to fire Big Red and jump ship to another provider... but there isn't one. Verizon has us over a barrel, but we have an ace up our sleeve:

We pay $9.95/month for unlimited data per line on 4 lines!

So long as we pay retail for phones (have a special fund just for the cause), we won't lose that deal. If Verizon ever pulls unlimited data from customers, nothing will hold us there IF someone else actually expands into our area. Until then, we're really kinda stuck.

I crunched some numbers and I came to the conclusion that I can save money and quasi leave verizon. I just bought the Nexus 4's and by dropping the data from our lines, and dropping the unlimited texting as well, and changing the smartphones to dumb phones until the contracts are up, I can save 30 dollars a month. Now I just have to wait I guess.

I did that when we switched to Verizon from Alltel, since our contracts didn't line up. Only other thing is you lose your old numbers.

Yeah, that is a consequence. But I plan on really abusing Google Voice with the t-mobile plan, so I guess it's not a huge deal. Not like I'm going to lose my contacts because of google contact syncing. I love Google

Jmar, looks awesome. Super jealous. Still trying to convince the lady to leave VZW when our contract is up. Were you able to port your numbers?

Numbers ported with ease. T-Mobile made the etf really simple
By virtue of signing and porting, the contract was terminated. Didn't have to talk to a vzw Rep. Nice

That sounds great.
What are you getting for data speeds so far?

Anyone tried Google Keep yet?

I think I'll give it a shot and see what the fuss is all about...

Looks awesome. Check out the video on Droid Life as well.
Just downloaded it on my tablet, will do on the Gnex later.

Yep, already using it. Seems pretty sweet so far. Might watch that video to see if I'm missing anything.

One thing that I think folks may be missing out on is that apparently there IS Google Now integration. I believe you say "Take note" and then whatever you want to write.
Haven't tried it myself though. Seeing the real time update is a little crazy though!
