    Interesting vertical acquisition. I hope that in the long run they are able to save money and pass the saving to their customers

    lol, although I'm happy I don't live in Windsor. Just imagine living where you are constantly bombarded with low frequency humming noises

    I am surprise how the Cdn politians are taking this thing really seriously.
    WOWZA...I have no words for their utter stupidity.

    Oh man, I hope whatever the work conflict was, it resolves in your favour.

    Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.

    95% done with my iOS app. Need to do some graphics and some icons and fix one issue, but I think it may be a Titanium bug more than code related. I am trying to come up with a solution that fixes it right now, but waiting to hear back from the support team about it. iOS apps need different size icons so gotta work on that tonight. Pretty stoked to get it tested on devices.

    Have a ton of ideas for V1.1 including doing an iPad SplitView style and social media integration. But i'd rather just get it in the app store and approved/denied by Apple.

    That's another way to do it - glad you got it resolved.

    Most things are legal in Jersey. ;)

    Hope everything works out Dread. Sounds pretty bad, but keep your head up and pull through it.

    Read this yesterday - what a good article. I remember when he traded his iPhone for a car and extra iPhones. Pretty interesting stuff in there.

    I will be honest, I am surprised my work hasn't blocked this site yet.

    My job blocks anything streaming (but only in my office). Stamford office has Pandora, Spotify, Rdio, etc.

    So obnioxus that we have different firewalls. They even get Reddit!

    No. I liked that it was a bookmark on my computer. I can do Sirius through Nyxie if I want but sound quality isn't the same.

    We can get Facebook & You Tube, but no streaming radio. Bass Pro Shops and Cabella's is blocked too. Can't figure out the logic.

    Facebook - no. YouTube - yes. But only by going to it directly. It gets blocked if trying to go via a link.
    I can still get to iwastesomuchtime.com though!

    BB, did you upgrade to 2.0 on the gnex? My sound quality is great, bt headset, regular headset or through
    The earphone jack to stereo.

    Haha, I can't figure out the logic of the filter here either. Some sites you think should be blocked aren't but ones that probably shouldn't be are.

    MY workplace allows Facebook (FB chat) and G+ (but no gTalk). No streaming of any kind. Sites with name or tags that contain 'game' are blocked too.

    And for my friends in the Aeronautics field, and those who are intrigued by it - thought you'd all get a kick out of this. :

    But he said Youtube wasn't blocked and streaming radio is. If I were a network admin, I'd reverse that. Streaming radio might take up 50MB/hour, if that. You could easily surpass that in 10 minutes of youtube.
