Still trying to find a reason to upgrade from my S3. It does everything I need it to, and does it well. Would love another Nexus, but why pull out the wallet for it?

Doesn't look as bad as it sounds, but I don't see it being a huge sales incentive.

Is This the Gold iPhone 5S?

And it's raining like crazy right now. Going to be a fun night. Trucks will get stuck, hopefully lightning doesn't hit a well, but Luke Kuechly killed it against the Ravens!

Also my neighbor stopped changing with her curtains open. Today is kind of a wash.

Well, launch day at AT&T:

White LG optimus G pro (kind of interesting, I guess)
Moto X
HTC one Mini
Samsung galaxy mega 6.3

Kind of meh...

Sadly, I think we have reached an over saturation of phones in the market. Nothing really new or innovative. I guess the next step is for each manufacturer to attempt to create their own ecosystem.

I haven't used it but I would have to agree. I was thinking in terms of os and productivity suites. They have been failing and flailing in those areas. They are having a real tough time transitioning to a cloud based market IMO.

Went to check out the local at&t for the new phones and there was like 13 people ahead of us and like one person working. No new devices on display and no one to help us. I was thinking about adding the nexus to the family plan but nope.

I wonder if there is going to be this much foot dragging when the "new" iPhones come out? I bet they will be pulling an all nighter to get things out....

Morningafternoonevening all
Managed to get a sunday off work, so I am sitting here, drinking coffee and thinking about what I usually think about in the mornings. Cell phones

It seems to me that cell phone tech has reached a Plateau. It has matured, the market saturated and at one point I was actually doing my research on devices before buying them... this research was to see how hacker friendly they where. Was the bootloader unlockable, could I flash a custom rom, was root available etc. At a result, I never really used my devices. They where toys. Adult legos taken to the extreme, I guess. A way to stick it to the man by saying, I can modify my device because I bought it.

At first, this was fun, because even though I had say a Galaxy S3, and everyone else had one too, I could proudly say mine was different. "Custom software" I would often say, with a sly grin on my face. Most people could not give a rip less. But still, I had my phone running software only available through some dev that no one heard of.

And for what? Just to say I could do this!?

What started off as fun turned into a headache. Often, installing custom software caused issues. Random freezes, phone acting screwy, signal just stopped requiring a reboot or airplane mode toggle. After a bit, I finally opted to purchase mobile odin pro (great program by the way) and reflash the original factory image (since I lost the nandroid right off the bat when I first started to tinker with the note 2). At this point, I was done with custom roms on this device. I figured I would loose root, but I bought supersu to allow it to try to maintain root after update. I was surprised to see it actually worked on my note 2.

But anyway, the point is, I grew tired of babysitting my rooted device. Tired of tinkering with it, tired of it messing up when I needed it most. I decided to actually just.... use the device.

To think about things, I realize I was just buying devices to just tinker with them. I picked up the note 2 because I though I could run twitter and radarscope at the same time out of the box. I could not. I should have stopped and taken the device back right there, but I figured the devs would find a work around. And they did. With some software that acted wonky for me. And the aspect ratios of some programs made using multiwindow useless anyway.

So, what does this mean? I am sitting here with a note 2 right now, basically at stock, with just root (though I expect an eventually an update will break this, unless Chainfire updates the SuperSU app to work with 4.3, I heard it did not yet because of the way 4.3 is laid out.) At this point. I Suppose its all good.

I guess what I am trying to say (very longwindedly I may add), I have, rooted, used custom roms and came back to stock because I got tired of messing with things. I guess I have had my fun playing with the back end of things. Time to actually use the device.

Now that I have pulled back from the hacking, I have looked at a couple devices I am using and have started to think about things a bit more. From a usability stand point...

The 3 teens in Jeopardy ended up with $0, no winner.
Wow. It was a tough final Jeopardy though, I didn't know the answer (all three answered the same and bet it all!).

Unless the zombies drink it all up first and come after you for more.

So, the Note III is expected next week (confirmed, actually, release, not sure) but I wonder how bloated this thing is going to be with samsung rumored to only have 32 and 64gb of storage. I bet 18gb is going to be bloat installed....

And or, they will drop the SD card

I am kind of looking forward to this device, but like the previous few phone announcements, I have been left underwhelmed and I suspect this to be no different.

I'm still looking forward to it. I think the only other phone outside of the iPhone to be announced before years end is the Nexus 5. If I'm going to upgrade this year, it'll be between the N5 and Note 3.

No thank you

There is a very good reason African Americans don't like Colorado. Colorado doesn't like us !

You see, he found his entertainment somewhere other than the slopes. We don't really enjoy cold. It's kinda against our nature....
