My brother has it and I have his password so I guess you could say I have Netflix.

If your AAC files are not protected, you can convert them right in iTunes.
If they are the older, restricted files, the easiest (free) option is to use this converter.

Hahaha, naughty. Well if you have some time to spare this weekend, I'd highly recommend it - he's hilarious. His voice impressions are flawless and his jokes are very relatable. Very very funny.

I played the free Chrome version when it first came out. I was useless at work for about 3 days. I haven't been back in awhile, but I'll blame you if I get nothing done again today now.

Do you mean to remove the DRM so you can copy/play on whatever you want? I understand one way is to burn a CD with the DRM-enabled songs, then rip those songs back from the CD. However, I simply repurchased the non DRM version of iTunes. I think it was about $.25 per song. I didn't have but maybe 25 songs with DRM, so it wasn't expensive. And it was easier, and faster.

I'm curious is Google Music will pick up songs that are DRM enabled? (I LOVE Google Music!)

That's what I mean. Thanks. I forgot about the option to upgrade. When I look tonight I'll see how much it would be. Its probably just easier that way.
I haven't used Google Music yet.

Google Music is awesome! It read all of my itunes playlists. I had somewhat maintained the itunes playlists, and then used isyncr to copy songs/playlists to my DX. Pretty slick. Now I need to dump itunes for good, and use GM. I still hate being tied to GM, but it's better than itunes. I do want the songs on my computer though, and not just "in the cloud."

What, No Nexus. Thats a crime in my book..

And now I officially hate you for that.

I'm headed back to the gym next week. I have a personal trainer lined up and she has agreed to punish me until me abs are as rock hard as they were when I was in my early 20s.

I'm curious how many here are using the NFC tags? I think they are probably one of THE coolest things for our Nexuses (Nexi?)! I have ordered my tags, but haven't received them yet, but just looking at the options that are available, I can't wait to mess with these! My car doc should be arriving in the next day or so, and I plan on using a tag on it, as well as at home (bedside), my home office and workplace office.

For those using NFC tags, would you list how you're using them, as well as which apps you're using to program/manage them?

Good morning all.

Had the electrician come this morning (landlord sent him) to replace all the outlets in the apartment and kitchen of my living room since the one the FiOS box was plugged into went bad. So all is working now.

Running gummyNex 0.4.2 and its so fast -- I love it.

Alright, I must be doing something wrong...Anyone who uses widgetlocker please help me out

I thought maybe it was the rom/setup I had on my Droid X, but apparently not...But everytime I am in a phone call and I am ready to hang up, I pull the phone away from my face, the screen auto turns on, and widgetlocker is there waiting for me to unlock before I can hang up. I have the "show in call" option NOT selected...yet it still shows in call. Anyone else every had this problem or is it something I am missing?

5'10" and I vary between 160-165 lbs I've dwindled a little from my college days when I was 170 with 7% body fat.... I can eat whatever I want and not gain much if any at all. Weight lifting is about the only thing that makes me really gain weight.

A detective might know that by checking information in his previous NFC-related screen grab -- one of the reasons I am not a fan of the foursquare app. But fortunately we are all "lounge friends" and have no reason (or desire) to snoop.

P.S. This is also the reason my GPS shows "home" as the store around the corner from my neighborhood. No need to let a would-be thief use my own phone to swing by the house while I'm out!

If I made my Foursquare venue a "Home" then it would hide my address, but I honestly am not terribly worried. My building is an apartment with 17 units in and I don't have my unit in there and you need to be buzzed in.

But never thought about that keeping Home as somewhere NEAR your house and not actually your home address.

Same reason you should never leave Home programmed in a car GPS. Nothing like a turn by turn guide from you to have your house robbed.

Hello all, what's a good Call Recorder app for our SGN? Also, can a call recorder app be used on unrooted phones? Thanks...

PS: the apps on the market get a lot of poor ratings.

Splashtop Remote Desktop Free Today In The Amazon Appstore, Normally $4.99 – Droid Life
By the way everyone, I downloaded Splashtop and have been messing around with it. Very cool! It's the opposite of AirDroid; instead of controlling your phone from your computer, Splashtop allows you to control your desktop from your phone! Controls take a little getting used to, but it was very cool to see my laptop screen in a very tiny version on my phone. Highly recommended, even just to try it, laugh, and then delete. It's free, so why not? Still, I can see some pretty good usages from an app like this, so I'm keeping it.

Are you kidding? It's one of the reasons I still hang out in the lounge...well that and all the really cool/knowledge people.

I use Pulse on my phone and even with that I still don't always catch the feeds you post. Keep it up...as long as it's not a huge pain in your...you know.

Thanks!

Hahahaha, um, in all honesty, it is kind of a pain. I probably have too many RSS feeds. That's why I wanted to check to see if anyone actually reads it. XD But if you guys do still like it, I'll keep it up every day or two.

I downloaded mine from Amazon Appstore, and mine is indeed working just fine. Where are you trying to download from?

Okay, good to know, I'll take GetJar out and put in a link to a story about Amazon Appstore instead.

EDIT: Done, thanks vandyman.

I downloaded this earlier and messed around with it for a bit. I couldn't figure out how to drag a file but maybe that has to do with connecting to a Mac. As a FAOTD on Amazon, it was fun to try out, but I think I still like TeamViewer better. I have used it for years to fix my mom's computer problems from my computer and now I can connect from my phone in a pinch too!

Hmm, very interesting, no client side installation needed? How do you gain access to the computer?

Sorry if my last post was misleading. There IS a client-side installation required.

I installed it on my mom's computer and set it up to run as an extension which runs on startup. It includes an auto-generated ID and you set your own password during installation. You can install a client only or a full install (I installed the full version on my Mac so that I can connect to mom's PC or allow my phone to connect to my desktop).

It wasn't your post that was misleading, the TeamViewer website says "Instant remote support – no need for any installation on the client side".

Isn't a program like Tasker or Llama easier than setting up the NFC tags? Plus, you can't very well set up a tag at someone else's house, for example.
