Good news about the Note 3 is that it's virtually un-brickable. If something goes wonky, I can always Odin back to stock, re-root and start all over. And I've done that too.

Yeah, if you say that you're still nervous, I don't doubt you.

What I couldn't believe is that you projected that on to other veteran modders.

There's no evidence to support that, and quite a bit to the contrary.

It may be raining where you are but that doesn't mean that all the rest of us are getting soaked.

I suppose, Early, that it doesn't count that other veteran modders have told me that, does it? I suppose it's time for a poll

How many have told you that?

Definitely time for a poll.

And we ought to define veteran modder.

Is this something that only affects Note users? LG users?

Whenever a new HTC comes out, the gang can't wait to do it again.

Neither do the Nexus veterans seem put out.

But we don't have to say Mother may I for a root exploit either, and it's always the same process with minor variations -

Backup, unlock bootloader, install recovery, either install SuperSU or a rooted rom, restore, from any operating system. Last month I got bored doing it again.

As I recall, Sonys are the same way.

No Odin or that other Samsung thing that won't die, no LG installer, no worrying if Verizon finds out.

Maybe you mean - veterans with Korean phones on Verizon and not "the majority" of modders?

Well I'm not saying that the people who told me that make up a supermajority of modders... nor will I maintain that the majority of modders dive into a good juicy ROM with a fearlessness that would make Houdini shudder.

I suppose that we can find common ground in the reality that each modder goes into it with their own confidence level, and either ROMs on such occasion as is only necessary, with some degree of trepidation; or routinely puts their device through its paces and has no fear.
I would hope we can agree on that

I'm here! I have to admit I've been really busy lately. Still rocking the Note 3, although I've decided to ditch the iPad mini (or at least put it in a drawer somewhere for a while) and go back to Note 10.1. I tried the Pro 12.2, but man that thing is HUGE!!! Waaaaay too big.

I'm sorely tempted by the G3, though.

Han, it's always great to see you here... I thought you were somewhere shooting Episode VII...

I'm still sporting the Note 3 as well, but we're less than a month away now from the reveal of the Note 4! I'm so pumped!

Meh. The Note is a lot more than just the stylus. An LG G3 Stylus phone would really have to wow me to pull me away from the Note series.

I'm rockin' a Note Tab right now, but I really don't see me using it in a smaller form factor. Aside from my aging vision, I have found that my phone activities and tablet activities are quite different.

The Note 4 will have to be a complete overhaul to wow me enough to plunk down that much cash for it. If screen size is the same, I probably won't bite. The rumored upjump in screen resolution isn't enough for me. I'm very happy with the HD on the 3. Same goes for the G3 Stylus.

I'm also not tempted by supposed aluminum. Even when I had the metal and glass iCrap, I had a case for it. I don't think I'll ever go case-less, so who cares.

I just spent a ton of cash on a high end laptop I need for work and a nice long vacation.

Samsung already has the monopoly for their galaxy devices. Having a new competitor in the game, they will have a rough start. Sticking by my Note 10.1 until it's the end of it's life. Probably the most useful computer I have ever owned.

Oh how I hate FedEx.

I've had to use them, through no choice of my own, at least a dozen times now. NOT ONCE have they ever stuck to their 3pm delivery guarantee (to my office address).

Not. freaking. once.

Looks like Sprint is replacing their CEO as well. Hmm. He's been there a long time, though. Maybe it's time for a change.

My hopes went out the window of better coverage so I could leave Verizon, unless TMO steps up their game.

I posted in the Moto 360 section about pics of the charging dock and a comparison of it next to the LG watch, for those interested.

Is it true that they are going to start throttling unlimited LTE users?

If you are on a tower that is under heavy use. FCC has questioned it and Verizon gave their usual smug response.

Maybe, maybe not. They claim they will be enforcing their 3G poicy on 4G. If you are an unlimited beyond your contract, have been previously flagged as a high user (top 5%) and are using a busy tower when it is busy, your throughput will be slowed enough for tiered folks to get their contracted throughput. The FCC has expressed concern that this may run counter to the rules for their purchase of bandwidth. My fear is VZW is playing chicken in hopes of eliminating unlimited.

Not surprising. I'm so glad I jumped ship.

The only thing I found in a couple minutes of Googling was Baltimore is on the list of potential upcoming cities for Fiber. Being not too far from here and about the same size city, who knows?
Some other reading led me to believe Google isn't trying to combat FiOS and DC is a big city for FiOS (I'm just guessing as Comcast is everywhere too).
I'm gonna say someone is just yanking my chain, but a guy can dream right?
