    Yeah there is no one at work today. I'm glad my wife talked me out of visiting my parents this year. Just a nice relaxing weekend at home. (other than putting up Christmas decorations)

    ^ Sounds like a nice Thanksgiving. Hope everyone else has a Happy Thanksgiving as well!

    Decided to come in to work half a day yesterday and all day today since my mother-in-law was at home with the wife and babies helping out this week. That way I can take off next week when she goes back home. It's nice and quiet here :)

    So which one is it, because your wife has help, or because the MIL is there? ;)

    Honestly it's because she has help. My in-laws are amazing :) I honestly do not know what we would have done without her here last week and this week.

    Wanted to mention this here, Motorola customer service is TOP NOTCH! For my AT&T pre-order, there was a delay in shipping and after calling about it they sent me a $25 Google Play Card. Well last week I ordered a case for my wife's Moto X from their site with a clear back and yellow trim. It came in yesterday but was black instead of yellow. This case is $40 after taxes and shipping so I just called wanting to get it staightened out and swap it. Have them send me another with a pre-paid package to send the one I received back. They told me to keep what I received and they would send me the correct color for free. No hassle. :)

    I was going to buy a bunch of bitcoin back when it was starting, just because. It now falls under the saying of always go with your gut. FFS.

    I don't know if it's a placebo effect or what, but I can definitely feel a difference in snappiness on the Nexus 5 running ART instead of Dalvik.

    Battery life is supposed to be better too, although I'll have to give it a few days to really tell.

    And the T-Mobile LTE signal is FAST and steady.

    I am Han, but here's the thing. I have a 20 data discount per line saving 80 dollars a month. My bill for 4 comes to 230 with tax. No one else can match that. The only way I can upgrade practically, financially, would be to go to the "edge" program and lose my unlimited. I'm kinda stuck and very frustrated.

    Got the Darling Bride's Moto X set up on her line. Rooted my Note 3 AGAIN last night, installed Safestrap and flashed Hyperdrive ROM this morning.

    All is well in the First World.

    Have a thoughtful, safe and blessed Thanksgiving! :)

    I see why you're frustrated. On T-Mobile, I'm paying about $155 for 2 unlimited-everything lines. Comes with 2.5GB of free tethering a month. Much faster speeds than the Big Red Pimple.

    But you've got a pretty good deal going payment-wise.

    T-Mobile will come out more expensive to you if you do unlimited on all 4 lines, but if you do the JUMP! program, at least you can upgrade every 6 months. (I have JUMP on my line, but not my wife's.)

    Just saw that they are offering the Moto X contract free for $349/$399 on "Cyber" Monday for all carriers through the Moto maker site.

    I was considering a service called Straight Talk. Its like $30 a month but you have to buy the phone. Anyone think this is a good deal or know about the service they provide.

    Someone I know tried it but quit after a month because they were throttled after 2GB of data.

    I think the policy is 2.5GB before throttling, but she said she was throttled before that.

    There is also no hotspot tethering allowed.

    EDIT:

    Here's an article on some of those issues.

    Thanks!
    While the wife would like the wood grain ones, she's happy with the grey one (her favorite "color" :rolleyes::p). I'll let her know if she wants to go with it.

    I think I will just go the tablet route. Mobile data on the tablet, make phone calls via 3rd party app. Text with google voice.

    I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A HAPPY, BLESSED AND THOUGHTFUL THANKSGIVING.

    We're alive, we are on the web talking with like-minded people; and while no one is living a perfectly blissful life, we ALL have much for which to be thankful.

    I hope you'll take at least a moment of the day to meditate with an attitude of gratitude, to God or Kismet or whatever you believe in, for the many blessings in your life. And whatever life throws at you, HOW you react to it - with good character and rare good grace - is something no one can take away from you.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone :)
