You're starting to stereotype.

It's really disappointing. I wish he had had the balls to stand by his duty as a father and a husband. I guess I'm just too old fashioned

Hi Donna, welcome here! You're by no means intruding
Could you elaborate on your question?

Edit:
Is a cloud service like Dropbox an option? It's free.

I always have coffee. I'm thinking about putting a keurig in my work truck.

Also satellite radio is the best. Nothing but 90s alternative with no commercials.

How do you make the best coffee at home? Every time I try, it turns out nasty.

I use bottled water and coffee that hasn't been opened for more than a week. It also depends on the coffee you like. I like dark coffee. A good medium coffee would be Eight O'clock Colombian roast. I normally fill it half way but I like my coffee way stronger than most.

Freshly ground coffee and a moka pot. They're cheap and make as close to espresso as you can for cheap:
Moka pot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I use a Kuerig now, but if I have the time, I'll pull this guy out.

p.s. I take a Moka with me when I'm backpacking. Yup, I'm hardcore!

Cream and sugar are for making bad coffee consumable. +1 on the espressos

The softer the water, the better the espresso/coffee!

I may or may not have been a coffee expert in a very recent past career...

It is a bit labor intensive but oh boy is it the best way.
(PS, you don't NEED a French press. You can do it in a bowl and just pour it through a coffee filter the next day )

Went to see The Conjuring at the local multiplex tonight. Pretty creepy. Supposedly a true story. Let's just say I have my doubts about that.

That new Sony Xperia Z1 looks pretty good. I suspect we will not see it in the US until its outdated then still be charged a premium price for it on an like t-mo or something.

I think I would opt for the Sony over the Samsung stuff.

Depending on frequency compatibility, why not import a factory unlocked version it since you're on AT&T?

Does anyone know how development is for Sony devices?
Not they'll ever come to Verizon (okay, the beautiful Xperia Play ), but just curious.
Their devices are really nice looking, just not a fan of the skin.

Sony has a pretty good rep with teams like cyanogen. I've heard of them donating devices in the past. As well as trying to get devices into AOSP.


How much of that has converted into developer support though..? Not too sure

Thing is, when is Sony going to pull a "Samsung" and release their flagship on all domestic carriers..... and not 6 months after it's announced?
Would love to see another manufacturer in the game.

Most internationals that support 4g in the states are using bands that t-mo uses. Sony would be smart to include the other bands...

If this thing supports AT&T bands, then I may go for it, if I can find a legit importer.

Amazon usually gives you the ability to buy them through secondary vendors. But I'm pretty sure it comes with standard Amazon protections in case product isn't as advertised.

Guess my neighbors lawn almost went up in flames. The fire department had to come and help them not too long ago.

Morning all. Mmmm.... coffee

Quickie news rollup:

Microsoft buys Nokia.

The 8gig nexus 4 is sold out.

The note 3 is due to be announced tomorrow (suspectedly) along with a watch.

I think a new sony device will be announced tomorrow as well, the Z1 or something, we probably will not see in the states

I think they signed a license agreement for promotion. This website shows Kit Kat wrappers with Android on it.

Pull your top menu down. It's on the right in that row of options.

It's a good question. I'm sure some more details will come out, especially regarding the contests to give away free Nexus 7's or Google Play gift cards.

Press and hold back for a couple seconds and that should bring up the sidebar for it. But make sure multiwindow is selected in the settings menu. You should be able to pull down your notification to see your qwick toggles to check.

From this leaked spec sheet:Alleged Sony Xperia Z1 Press Release And Specs Leaked Ahead Of Tomorrow's Announcement

It appears that it supports all of T-Mobile's bands, and some of AT&T's. Not their LTE, but it does support their HSPA.
