    I ordered 10 of these it was like $12. They are re-programmable and come unformatted. You need 4.0.3 ROM (although not all 4.0.3 ROMS work they need the correct updated binaries) to write and read these. If you're on 4.0.2 and sticking to it then you need to request they be pre-formatted to NDEF iirc. I'm on Romans build 14 and they write and read these with no issues. Fabs/bigxies, kejars Gummy, and Romans build 14 are three 4.0.3 ROMs confirmed with NFC working on these stickers I've tested them.

    Thanks for the info. I am going to look at 3rd party desk docks...I miss the one from my DX. It had the time, alarm, weather, messages, etc, with some various customization. I'm disappointed the Nexus doesn't have that.

    Hmmm...striking out on a compatible desk dock app....anyone here have a suggestion for a good one?

    It's not stock ICS, but just a few days ago I noticed SwiftKeyX has a neon blue theme you can use that matches pretty favorably with the Gnex's blue theme.

    Hey all :)

    Mind if I share another image with you all tonight? If so:

    [​IMG]
    ICE by slitherjef, on Flickr

    I managed to get some place a bit more photo worthy tonight before the sun set and I shot some images, wanting to well, get some shots and try out that HDR software a bit more to see if its worth buying.

    The last shot I posted was in my back yard that did not really call for the HDR treatment. I think the shot posted above did deserve the treatment. I was shooting into the sun! :eek:

    Once again, I would love your thoughts on the images (a monochrome version will follow) I DO understand the image may be a bit saturated and a bit surreal looking but that could be due to me not having much HDR skills.

    I DO like what I see and feel I could play with this software and come up with something different all day long.

    If anyone has tips on photomatix 4.1 I would love to hear them :)

    Here is the monochrome slightly different version:

    PS, I hope no one minds me posting photos here and asking for thoughts :eek:

    The first one is beautiful. The bridge reminds of life and the way it disappears is the unknown.

    Well I've been lurking and I figured I'd post mainly because...

    I'M GETTING ONE SOON :D :D :D

    Out of curiosity, does anyone know if you could download and change the fonts on your Nexus without rooting? I was able to on my Fascinate via this app that's available for Galaxy S devices only... and obviously the GNex isn't a Galaxy S lol

    I chose "Metallica: Some Kind of Monster". Up next "Talladega Nights".

    I figured everyone (that doesn't already have a similar program) could use this and would like keeping their $35 in their pocket. Glad you could use it!

    @ Razor -
    I'm not sure if I want to kiss you or strangle you for convincing me to download Chrome.

    I've been learning and setting up for about 3 hours.

    Now I just need Google to give me a way to send links directly from my phone to Chrome. Or am I missing that setting somewhere?

    Oh yeah, and playing Entanglement which I believe a kiss/kick goes to Halon for as well. :)

    Maye someone could help me with this new situation. I'm at a friend's house and I'm trying to connect to their wifi network. My computer connnects right away, but on the GNex when i click connect it just says "saved" under the network name, but it doesn't connect.

    Hey jmar, yeah just my 3rd day green. Been visiting around the forums beyond my usual haunts -- there is so much happening! Four new mods just today as well.

    Loving the Rez! I didn't previously load that many apps on my phones, but it's not breaking a sweat with 42 so far. :)
