Is that not the very entry level one?

Balmy 38 here this morning. Not too bad, but I'm certainly not going outside for a little while.

Good morning!

I've been up since 4:30, just not online. A balmy 23F here!

Busy getting the final preparations in place for my Darling Bride's big 5-0 today! Yep, she hits the milestone today (of course 60 is the new 40), so I am working on her favorite cake (chocolate dump cake) and her requested meal: pinto beans, home-fried potatoes and Yum Yum Cornbread. Her last supper yesterday evening was ensalada caprese with prosciutto. Hope she feels well today, I've put a lot into this...

Hope you guys have a fun weekend!

Happy b day to the Mrs. Chief!
Only 69 deg here in TX today, but my better half has been in SD all week so she got her yearly dose of 20s with snow.. Jealous of all you cold weather folks.
Honey-do list is in progress since I have been up since 4am as well.. Wife arrives at 530 this evening.
Course I am also researching a Note III that I want to pick up this weekend too... Lol
Hope everyone is well.. Been a while since I have been around.

Didn't realize Myriam Joire left Engadget to be Pebble's spokesperson. Interesting. Just finished the podcast with her and she's super passionate about what she does. Just another great talent leaving Engadget.

And, congrats to you Mrs. Chief!
Hope ya'll have a great time tonight.

Morning all! I've been up since 7, a late riser compared to a lot of you! I didn't look at the temp but it was way colder than I would have liked.
Happy Birthday to Mrs Chief!!!

Verizon is getting a variant of that, 925 I think? I've messed around with a Windows phone and it is somewhat tempting.

I so don't want to go to work today. Maybe I'll go and do the exercises and then leave?

Nice way to start the morning. Bunch of fire trucks responding to something a couple buildings down from us. Doesn't look like anything serious; they seemed to be packing it in after about 30min.

While not the way you want a game to end, it was the correct call. But that's why it's a 7 game series. We'll see how game 4 plays out.

Hi folks! Well, Mrs. Chief enjoyed her birthday immensely, and she was showered with gifts and a Skype video call from the son. But the highlight of her day IMO was the final, BONUS gift: the Galaxy Note 10.1 2104 Edition to replace her obsolete Viewsonic gTablet running Honeycomb (which is going back to Squaretrade for warranty work AGAIN)!

Thanks for all the well wishes, she feels great, she feels fine, and she even feels a little bit YOUNG! And all you young folks: dread not the number 50... it's nothing at all!

I guess LG practices in black magic? The LG Flex has a back cover that can repair itself.

So tempting..


The Nokia Lumia 929 (Verizon)will have a 5 inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 display that offers a pixel density of 441ppi. That should sound familiar to those Android users with a top-shelf model. A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is expected to drive the device, which will carry 2GB of RAM and 32GB/64 GB of native storage. A 20.7MP PureView snapper is on back.

Hey folks!

We watched Jurassic Park 3D the other night and I am astounded by how the wizards in Hollywood can take a 2-dimensional movie and convert it to 3-dimension so well. It was great!

Have a great week

Good morning all - hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.

Got up at 9AM to wash the car in the frigid cold, but I enjoy a squeaky clean car and needed the wheels clean so I can swap to winter wheels next week and put these up for sale.

I have discovered it's much easier to be a design verifier than it is to be the actual designer. It's much easier to point out someone else's mistakes than it is to catch my own, lol.

Nyxie is getting worse and worse for battery life. 6 hours after unplugging, with about an hour of screen on, and I'm at 36%. I can't wait to get a new phone with a better battery

Anything is better than the GNex honestly.

I'm at 8 hours off charger, with 2 hours 30 minutes screen on time and about two hours of Spotify streaming and I am at 60% and I have been on LTE since I don't use the WiFi at work.

I've always replaced my phones battery every year, which helps a bit, but the verizon gnex has always been awful.

I'll miss the ability to easily swap batteries with the nextus 5, but a small price to pay given how cheap it'll be off contract. And no more verizon delaying updates.

BB, I'm with Stigy. With my G2, I honestly don't worry about its battery life since it's astounding. I've since used my old Gnex to stream music at work and keep it plugged in all day since it needs it! Hoping you can find something to upgrade to soon!

So, there's an Apple Store that just came into the mall near me. I put my gnex side by side with the 5s and the iPhone screen is better. Brighter. It always was, even back in the day. Is that the difference between super amoled and LCD or something?

The gnex isn't known for its screen resolution, especially when you're comparing one piece of tech that's brand new and another that's coming up on its 2 year birthday

If you took a "modern" flagship and held it side by side I doubt you'd be able to tell the difference.

I'd say go to your nearest carrier and do a side by side. Let us know what you think!

Amoled screens do a very nice job at showing all the different levels of blacks and grays. It's also more power efficient than LCD. However the downside is that brighter colors appear somewhat washed out and there's always the chance of image burn in. LCD does a better job at showing more detailed colors and if it's IPS+, it really helps when viewing in bright daylight. But it's less power efficient.

I like the way it looks better as well. Plus Amoled's tend to be pentile matrix based which detracts from some of the crispness as well. However the Moto X is Amoled and full RGB, and it looks fantastic.

Still less power efficient but often not an issue anymore.

With wifi, 6 to 8 hours of screen on time just hasn't been a problem for my LCD phone.

And the AMOLEDS have made improvements to color rendering.

It won't be long before AMOLED vs LCD becomes a cultural difference rather than a technical one on the high end phones.

Someone purchased a laserdisc off ebay for $699 that has a bunch of scenes of Ep.

Anyways, there is a facebook page that has been regularly updated for the past 4 days or so with clips from the laserdisc.

Captain Phillips was a decent flick. Fairly intense there at the end.
