    Hope so too. Avatar was good, but just not as entertaining.
    Excited to see how Dark Knight Rises does though. I think they'll likely be neck and neck. Wife is really looking forward to Prometheus.

    Hey hey, all!
    Been a while, eh?

    Being an introvert my mind has strayed into other things right now, but I am still rocking the nexus :)

    Thought I would drop in in case someone was wondering :)

    We always like hearing from our Nexus friends. And any other friends or friends in the making. :D

    Yeah, I'm sure your knees are as crunchy (or crunchier) than mine going up and down stairs.

    What? You have a chocolate-craving-fat-chick that inhabits your body too? Holy s***balls, Batman...they're taking over the world. I quit fighting her, she may be fat, but she's stealth, and she can kick my edamame-eating-good-girl's a$$ with a ho ho in each hand.

    Anytime, chica. And anytime you need somebody to take that chocolate bullet for you, you just give me a shout.

    Got a small confession to make:

    I am seriously thinking about dropping my Xoom for the iPad 3. I don't even tinker with my Xoom, I got it to tinker with, you know, hack, root and so on, but it turned out to not be what I thought it was. Changing roms is a PITA, uploading my photos is a PITA, it don't even support raw files!? Photography and weather is the big things for me, but the tablet just sits around. I still have a camera connection kit from my original iPad that should work with it. The high resolution graphics is another reason which falls back on the photography weather thing.

    What I am getting at is, I am paying for 4g service on the Xoom which rarely leaves the house with me any more. It will cost me 300 bucks to terminate the contract, (the device is not worth 300 bucks :rolleyes: ) and if I want to upgrade to a new device, I got to pay full price. About 600 bucks. A rock and a hard place.

    My thoughts where to upgrade this aging Xoom to an iPad 3 with 4g

    If you're going to use the iPad more then go for it. Nothing wrong with being an equal opportunity OS user.

    I can't wait until I get an Android tablet. I am waiting for the TF300 to be released in red this summer, then I am getting rid of my iPad2. I do love my iPad (I am in fact typing this post on it), but I am ready to move to an Android tablet.

    I won't ever get a tablet with a data plan though. If I need data and there is no wifi I just tether because I don't want to be locked into something on a tablet. It really puts you in a hard spot. When it comes to tablets I look at it like a computer and expect to spend $400-500 at least.

    I personally wouldn't get an iPad 3. Other than the display it isn't much of an upgrade. If I really wanted to buy an iPad right now I would either get a refurbished iPad 2 or a used one (eBay usually since there is at least buyer protection with PayPal) from someone who just upgraded to the new iPad.

    I wonder if it would be better to chuck my ancient droid x which can't even run tweet caster and add a second tablet.

    At least with the iPad 3 its a month to month and I can stop and start as I need the service (I think if I upgrade at full price? - need to consult big red)

    The biggest issue I have is with my own content and iTunes. I removed my old drive (wonder if I can put it back in the right slot, LOL) and see if that solves the issue but my computer is being stupid now too. Only time I really use my big PC (windows 7) is while editing photos, but my mouse curser keeps spinning and I keep getting memory errors and crap whilst playing some videos in WMP.

    That 700 bones could buy me another PC. Aurgh.... more research :eek::stupido:

    Yes the iPad is month to month (or less than a month if you get to your data cap sooner)

    I actually went with AT&T for my iPad. At the time I got it BigRed was screwing around with plans and AT&T was cut and dry with no ifs, ands, buts or oops-we-forgot-to-mentions.

    Actually my thinking has changed direction a bit.

    I am now thinking perhaps I should just replace my desktop PC, well, my 13" macbook pro :eek:

    Confused? Yeah. My desktop is giving me problems, my macbook pro 13" gets a lot of use, but it don't have enough power to do what my desktop can. My 13" MBP was an experiment actually so here is what I am thinking (I should have got the 15" all the long)

    My mom recently got into photography, her laptop is so old it barely works. The battery is toast. Its giving her fits and with it being windows, it needs a baby sitter - she is not computer savvy, so, I think I may give her my 13" MBP and get my 15" quad core i7 beast which would even give my desktop a run for its money. My desktop would be used for pretty much "legacy" stuff and would probably be shoved into a spare room until I can slowly get my raw files archived off of it unto a external HDD and once that is done, it will be replaced with the macbook pro since the dang tower takes up a LOT of space and eats up some power.

    Sorry to muddy up the android forum with apple chatter :eek:

    Are we going to have a youngest member contest? I'd put my money on
    blkbeltkid17 as our youngest (although I haven't seen him for a while)

    I really don't want to see a contest for the oldest member... :rolleyes:

    How dare you muddy up this tech forum with tech talk when we're busy talking about recipes, piercings, shoes, flying, movies, cars and other world shaking important stuff?

    BTW, i enjoy talking about Apple stuff just as much as I enjoy talking about android, flying and pretty women.

    I'm looking forward to seeing it. In our little town the theater can barely handle those new fangled "talkies" so I'm waiting to see it in a nice theater in Portland this weekend.

    My daughter is home from college for the summer so she's joining me on my Portland to Amsterdam trip this weekend. She wants to see tulips and the Red Light District. I'll agree to that, but I draw the line at the "coffee shops" in Amsterdam.

    (For those of you who don't know, the coffee shops there are not like Starbucks. In Amsterdam you can drink coffee and smoke marijuana in their coffee shops.)

    Can I be your daughter for the weekend? Or probably more like your sister...either way, I've always wanted to go to Amsterdam.

    ajdroidx, have you played with a Transformer Prime? It really is a beautiful tablet. I know what you mean about your Xoom (sort of). We used to have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and it was a POS. Laggy, slow, stuttery and at times, useless. The Prime is just so refreshing. Whether it is the Tegra 3, ICS, the keyboard, or the whole package, I love it. If you need data service, wait until VZW picks up a variant of it (Infinity perhaps?).

    I already asked too. Although you can have Amsterdam. I'm calling dibs on Hawaii. :D

    So for the most part I limit myself to Android information here, as I am not a big fan of certain other popular places due to the atmosphere. But I was getting desperate as my Iconia still had not gotten the ICS upgrade. So anyways, I went there, and sure enough, I was supposed to download an app first. All this time, don't I feel stupid this morning. Oh well, tonight I finally get ICS on my tab. Only because its almost 400MB and on my connection, would take 8 hours to download. Perhaps at lunch I will go outside and sit in my car with 4G.

    Good Morning everyone!

    I am June, Hubby is August. Neither of us are any where near the 24 and 31, lets just say one of us more than doubles one of those ages and the other one of us more than doubles the other, lol. Guess that makes this household in "older" group but you would be hard pressed to guess it if you met us. So Chief, if 60 is the new 40, what does that make are friends that are 24 and 31?:D:D:D

    Upgraded Ubuntu last night and upon rebooting, the mouse and keyboard are no longer functioning. Strange thing is that they, well at least the keyboard, function in the bootloader to select either Ubuntu or Windows 7.
