I know, I know. But I'm a stickler for inaccuracies in historical or biblical movies/shows.

Here's the Verizon GS4



So how much of a firestorm do you think this would create if I shared this with the GS4 people?

10 minute phone call to explain to my sister how to connect her phone to her wireless internet. I thought it was going to take longer!

I tend to have lots of notifications and widgets as well, though I did have enough sense to disable Field Trip, that was destroying my battery, haha. Obviously that's a large contributing factor to my poor battery life, but it should still be better than a few hours. Perhaps a new battery would help me out as well. Thanks

Hey, Stigy, how's the Pebble doing?
Looking through potential bands to swap out. Found a nice site for NATO style ones:

Dark Horse Adapting George Lucas's Original Star Wars Pitch - ComingSoon.net

Quote:
Three years before his 1977 film, George Lucas put down on paper his first story set in a galaxy far, far away—a tale of fantastic adventures, daring escapes, “lazer swords,” romance, and monsters. A story of Jedi Annikin Starkiller and General Luke Skywalker, an alien named Han Solo, and evil Sith Knights. The screenplay was titled The Star Wars!
I know it could be an Aprils Fools joke. I hope it isn't!

After thinking about I'm going with fake. DAMN! Disney owns Marvel, why would they let Dark Horse do anything like this?

It's really good - I am trying not to become addicted to it so I have been wearing it until it dies and then not wearing it for 4-5 days to get my other watches into the rotation, but I love it. The new watchfaces that are being put up are really cool.

Ya killing me!
I've updated the app several times, but can't even use it.
Whelp, at least when I get it, the development will be up there. Looks like Red is perhaps the next color to be distributed. Hoping White isn't too far behind, and according to "ispebbeshipping", the majority have been produced already.

Dread! Do you see that horrendous bottom bezel on that phone @1:13? It has to take up an inch of potential screen space! I'm hoping that's NOT the Moto X

I did see..... but what is it?!
Power button at the top really hints at a Moto device. Who knows, but I'm curious why they didn't use an N4, and the brief hints of software you see are definitely AOSP.

So I saw someone running JBSourcery Experimental 5.1.6 - any new features or just increased battery life / more stability?

Dirty flash from 5.1 okay?

Okay will do. Is there an experimental changelog that they keep a running list of?

Swiftkey Tilt is real (and hilarious!).
SwiftKey Tilt might be an April Fool’s Day joke, but it’s a real feature
It works, but is so stupid, I hope they didn't pay anyone to code this.

The only thing I want in my new phone is a battery that will last ALL DAY with no worry WHAT-SO-EVER on how much I use it. I don't care if they can make phone cook me a hamburger. What is the point if I can't use that hamburger cooking feature because I was on my phone for 2 hours and it now needs charged?

For those with Verizon corporate/employer discounts, revalidation for them has begun. Best to do it now before you lose them.

Well, the Darling Bride FREAKED OUT when she turned her S3 on and got the cracked screen! I accused her of dropping it and then feigning surprise. She was swearing up & down she didn't do it. I told her I couldn't blame it on the dog, since the dog doesn't have opposable thumbs and couldn't put it back on the base... and the screen replacement would cost $250. This went on for like 10 minutes... and I finally "fixed" it for her and broke the joke. She was furious and relieved at the same time!

Then onto the son of mine, who - you may recall - starts his computer course a month from now. I crafted an elaborate e-mail printout that basically advised him that his course instructor was undergoing surgery & recuperation and would have to slip the course date one year to May 1, 2014. He was devastated! Took him 10 minutes but finally figured out what day it was.

All in all a pretty wonderful day for the Chief

CREDIT KARMA

Is a great credit monitoring app and free to use. It updates weekly and works off Trans Union. If you have great credit it probably wouldn't be useful to you? I use it since I am trying to rebuild mine. My credit took a nose dive when I went back to school. Last week when my account updated I went up 27 points! Slowly but surely I'm getting my good credit back!
halon,

Does this use your one free credit report from Trans Union? Or does it do something differently?

So I had an epic and cruel joke on my mother before I was even born! April 1st was the day she went into labor. Then about 11pm, labor stopped completely. APRIL FOOLS!

I was born two days later

So I think I might be in trouble at work, and I waited to post this today so you guys wouldn't think it was an April Fool's day joke.

Okay, so over the weekend I worked on "cooking the books" on some office balance sheets that one of our legal secretaries (I'll call her Mandy) works on as part of her job. I cooked it so that it looked like she was stealing money from the petty cash. I made it look like this on hard copy and in the computer (I made a back up of the real ledger, of course).

So yesterday I call her in and tell her I need to talk to her. I show her the balance sheet and tell her that compared to what's actually in the petty cash account, there appears to be $800 missing and that since she is the only one with access to it, other than the partners, all evidence points to her being the thief. Then I tell her that she is fired and that if she leaves peacefully I will not notify the police.

Well anyway she gets all red and started shaking and saying that someone was setting her up, and she starts crying like immediately!!

I was very quick to say it was an April Fool's joke but she got really pissed and went to HR.

What the hell, doesn't she ever watch The Office?

Anyway, my boss was in on it, so I don't think I will be in TOO much trouble, but seriously, I didn't even get time to enjoy it and I think I made an enemy.




Oh, and good morning, Nexicans!

Same here. Love the beat and love the guy's voice that does the "I'm gonna pop some tags..." part.

Edit: Oh wow Han! You pulled a Michael Scott! Very funny, but yeah, you probably made an enemy there. You shouldn't be in too much trouble...might get a letter in your file or something from HR.
