The G3 looks so good. LG has had a better phone than Samsung and HTC in the G2&3. I'm still jealous of the front speakers of HTC. As for Samsung S series...nothing in them I want.

And to continue my rambling. I'm going on 6 months of bluetooth being messed up on my N7. I search everyday for news on the release of 4.4.3 and I'm tired of waiting.

Never used BT on my N7. I absolutely love this guy, best $30 in tech I've ever spent.

Tv went from Philly to Pittsburgh driving right by me as usual with orders. Tracking site says estimated delivery for today and arrived in PGH at 750am. Should easily be here today but not looking good.

Finally getting 3D but I sold my PS3 last month and the PS4 has not been made 3D movie capable yet.

Get this: I ordered and received 3 Samsung S5's. We have an account with 4 phones. I've upgraded the family but me? I'm waiting for the next bigger thing than the current next big thing.

So... I upgrade my son over the phone and we get cut off in the middle of the activation with the CSR. I go to look and my son KEPT HIS UNLIMITED!!!!! My wife went onto the loyalty max 6 gb, which is fine since she only uses about .5 gb per month!

I'll activate my daughter on the 6 gb (she only uses 1.5 gb per month)... So the heavy hitters, my son and I, will retain unlimited. My next phone will be probably DPP (no contract payment for the entire phone) and I'll keep my unlimited. Amazing how this is working out!!

I'm holding onto unlimited as long as possible, but to be honest I really don't need it. Both the wife and I are on wifi at home and work. She averages about 2Gb and I'm around 1.5Gb. My G2 is also on a DPP and she bought her Moto X outright. May look into whether a tiered plan would be any cheaper.

I will grasp unlimited data with my cold dead hands. I USE it

QUESTION: Has anyone here figured out a way to mark all as read on the Gmail app? I re-rooted and re-ROMmed Gina the Note 3 (now THAT was an odyssey, but after much hair-pulling she's on Hyperdrive KitKat) and now my Gmail accounts list like "114 unread". I can't figure out how to mark all as read. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Issues with syncing is my only guess? Are you working with email on another machine, PC?

Bread, I changed a setting from Default Mailbox to Priority Mailbox. That took care of a lot. But still, they're there.

I do work with one Gmail account on my laptop through Outlook.com and they're all marked as read: but that's only for the local machine. I sent feedback to Google about Gmail's lack of a "mark all as read" command.

No Nexus 6, Sliver starts in February, so says @evleaks.

FCC study finds cable rates have risen triple the rate of inflation. I'm sure the Comcast and Time Warner merger will make things better. And the possible new net neutrality rules will be the best thing ever.

Saw that rumor. Still skeptical. How will Goog announce a new version of Android? What device to they expect Devs to work with?
Granted EVLeaks is often on it though....

From what I've read it sounds just like Google Play phone, high specs, no bloat.

Don't mention 3D. I'm still waiting for my tv.

Was to be delivered tomorrow until the delivery company said they don't offer white glove service in my area. Meaning they don't do stairs. So I had to have it changed to Friday. I have to wait longer.

That's a bummer with zeroes on the end. We have all new stainless steel appliances coming and it's a good thing we are in - surprisingly - an area with white glove delivery. Darling Bride's sudden and unexpected windfall gave her the kitchen she's always dreamed of... it should all be here in a week or so

Well, the Darling Bride is one happy person today. At 4:30 she takes delivery of a brand-new, fresh off the factory floor 2014 Chrysler 300C with every bell and whistle imaginable. And other than loading it on & off trains and trucks, she'll be the first person to drive it. Insurance is done, Pre-Approved Loan is locked at 1.75% for 60 months (won't need that long), and she's ready to go to the dealership NOW!

And other than loading it on & off trains and trucks, she'll be the first person to drive it. Insurance is done, Pre-Approved Loan is locked at 1.75% for 60 months (won't need that long), and she's ready to go to the dealership NOW!

You should be able to get 0.9 APR at this time of the year...I know you got a preapproval but you should double check yo see if you can get a better rate. The dealership may have "cuddle" with the bank or credit union you are going through. Double check it brother.

There's a 3rd one out already?!
We just got our Acer Aspire S7 a couple weeks ago. I HATE having a touch screen. There's some dust on the screen, you go to wipe it quickly away with a finger and now you're in some new window. PITA if I've ever seen one.

The best the dealership could do was 1.49. But we won't have the loan long enough to lose much. Thanks for the advice!

TV has arrived!

I was shocked when I went outside and saw there was only one person!

As he was pulling it out it almost fell over so I had no choice BUT to help.

This is the biggest TV I've ever had. It comes with 4k and 3D. I tested out simulated 3D and was very impressed. Although once you stand up you get crosstalk. With the TV speakers located on the sides this thing is sexy!

Inside Google tipster said the 23rd, today, for 4.4.3. Same tipster has now said it is delayed, no time given. FFS.

Looks like they're locking threads left and right on XDA about this too. Wouldn't hold your breath too long.

Thanks for the congrats on the Darling Bride's spaceship with wheels. Here is the happy lady with her brand new, 7-mile odometer baby:


I'm telling you: this thing does everything but drive itself and make cappuccino in the morning. I'm simply astonished that they could squeeze this much technology into a single vehicle.



EDIT: Better yet... when we took delivery, our salesman SADLY told us that our rebate had increased significantly! LOL in fact, it almost completely covered the cost of a factory bumper-to-bumper warranty, on anything that isn't accident-caused, routine maintenance or wear & tear, with only a $100 deductible. For as long as we own the car! How many car manufacturers still even offer such a warranty? Anyway, Chief & Mrs. Chief are very happy.

I've always did that if I bought a 300 I would put suicide doors on it.

There was an episode of Pawn Stars that a guy was trying to sell a custom Dodge Magnum that he modified with suicide doors. It was pretty boss but he was asking way too much for and they never bought it.

Today I went to the store and remote started the new car from the Deli (it has a 300-foot range!). By the time I got back to the car, it was nice and cold. But as soon as I got in, it shut off and I had to start it normally... that's how it stops would-be thieves from taking it.

I'm ceaselessly flabbergasted by all the stuff this car can do.

I hope everyone close by one will attend their local Memorial Day ceremony. Take time out of your holiday to recognize that without the service and sacrifices of VETERANS, you wouldn't have a holiday. Thank them for their service. Talk to them: you will be in the company of living legends, and the families of those who have passed. I will be speaking at ours as Commander of the local DAV. It's always humbling to talk to WWII, Korea and Vietnam veterans, because I know they had it far worse than me and lived to tell the tale.

For example, Mr. Raymond here is a WWII veteran who stormed Omaha Beach at D-Day in the first wave... and lived to talk about it. He marched all the way to Berlin (he maintains that no one would give him a ride there). It truly sends chills up my spine to be in the presence of such living legends.

G3 looks beautiful. . . sorely tempted.

Any news on when we can expect Note 4? I'll wait and see which is best.

I imagine it'll be in the fall as usual (Oct/Nov).
Still haven't read much into the G3 but I love my G2 as it is and don't see a reason to upgrade.

G3 was going to be my next phone. However, I think I'll hold onto my Gnex a little longer and wait for the next big thing. I'm a bit underwhelmed with this. However, if this is easily rootable, and if it has 3gb ram for big red, I may reconsider. The final unveiling of the G3 didn't live up to it's hype.

All leads point to a September 3rd launch of the Note 4
