    I've seen the Nexus commercial. It gave me a twist. :D

    Anyone use the KeyRing app. You can scan all your store cards that give you discounts instead of carrying them all around.

    Funny you ask that. I already have a "Samsung specific" one that I put in last weekend, it didn't do anything haha. I also tried the new radios and it did nothing...I think it actually made the reception worse.

    I think I remember OTD saying she uses it. I believe she liked it.

    Nope, my battery was incredible today.. well after I had to freeze G+.. the stupid app was at 86% of my battery after 3 hours because of background tasks.. I have no clue what happened but it went nuts and I never knew.

    I tried uploading a 23 minute video to youtube last night. After 5 hours of uploading then processing it said video is too long. I've been trying on Facebook now since about 5pm. Percentage wise it is done. Not sure what hold up is now?

    They look great, but still too big. I'm trying to get it to where the entire image fits on one screen, so I can disable scrolling.

    Now if they can get it to where they can change the dock so that the annoying gray line is gone, I'm in!

    Do you know if that's part of the update?

    I sized them 720 x 1280 which is the size of one screen I thought. Hmmmm.

    Agreed. I get email on my phone faster than I get it on my computer at work.

    My Keurig is the single best purchase I've ever made. Try some of the Barista Prima coffees that you can buy on Keurig's website. I like my coffee strong enough to walk to the cup by itself, and their Italian Roast is AMAZING when I brew it on the smaller cup setting.

    I use it and I like it a lot. It works at some stores, not so much at others. Mainly stores that use the handheld scanners work better than the ones you have to slide the phone across the scanner.

    I went ahead and exchanged my Nexus this afternoon...no kung foo needed. I noticed that not as much of my stuff just "flowed in" like it did the first time from being synced with Google. I had to do more through AppBrain. Fortunately, I hadn't done an awful lot of tweaking yet...I've been pretty happy with ICS right out of the box. Fingers crossed that the connectivity issues are gone and battery life improves.

    If we can figure out what size it needs to be I'll happily resize. I use an app called super wall which enables me to use one image on all screens. I transition using the cube effect

    Dawn...glad you got to exchange the limon without using Kung Foo.

    Han.. stop flashing...I am sooooooo jealous!

    Steven...feel better!

    I am off to bed...work at 430a!

    Well, shopping excursion was successful. Got a new blanket for our yet to be purchased new king bed. Found my uncle a present, and got pedi-paws for the girls.

    I've given up on the rezound for the night. Couldn't get it activated before I left and now I'm tired.

    Had a great day with my extended battery though! Got down to around 20% when I got home from shopping at 10, so that's a pretty full day I think. It was at 20+ hours on battery from what I remember.

    Interesting someone on xda posted about a possible battery saving option for those who want to try. I've thought about this, just didn't give it a chance. Might have to try it although I'm satisfied 100% with my battery life.

    This is what he stated: Like many here I've been having battery drain issues since the day I purchased the Galaxy Nexus. I also purchased the extended battery since day one. I've been reading through every single forum on how to reduce the battery drain and none seems to have worked for me. I've tried switching to wifi, 3g only, no email push, no google+, etc and my phone at 100% battery would lose almost 30% within 2 hours idling. Then I was looking at the settings and I came across the Developer Options/Background process limit and limited my background process from Standard to At most limit to 1 process and my battery has improved tremendously. Prior to making the change the Android OS was using 80+ % on idle (Wifi or 3g didn't make a difference), now it's uses around 20 or less. On idle I'm seeing around 4% or less an hour vs 15% battery drain.

    Please remember this may or may not solve YOUR battery drain, but it has definitely helped mine and I just wanted to share with the community on what else you can try.


    btw I'm back on franco's kernel new nightly #4 it's been the real deal so far :)
