    3D is nice, but to be honest, I don't use it much. I bought a 3D tv last year with about $150 worth of 3D glasses to go with it and I've used it maybe 3 times. Avatar was a treat to watch in 3D though.

    Feel for you Chief. I hope you guys get some expert medical care and she feels better soon.

    Good morning everyone.

    I lasted 2 days on the Crapple. I literally felt nauseous with it. Trying to read anything on that tiny screen was torture, and it was so bland and boring, I wanted to throw it into the gutter.

    Back on the Note 3 now.

    I feel like someone had my marbles in a vice for a couple of days but now I am gloriously free.



    Oh, and Packers? Ahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahaha!!!!!!

    New higher end LG tv has a soundbar attached and comes with subwoofer and LG is bringing back WebOs to most of their 2014 tvs.

    Still waiting for Sony live stream at 5pm.

    Awesome!!

    Book was WAY better than the movie, in my opinion. And I loved the movie.

    I've heard it was better and I also loved the movie. I have no idea how many times I've watched it? Have it on bluray too.

    I found this book and couldn't pass it up even though it was a little pricey.

    Watching the Samsung CES event, Michael Bay comes on stage to talk about UHD. After one minute, if that, something goes wrong with the teleprompter and he says he'll just wing it. 5 seconds later he just walks off stage.

    A Padfone is finally coming to the US on AT&T. If it supports AT&T, that likely means it supports T-Mobile lte. Now just have to figure out what the full retail price will be and if they sim unlock it for me.

    Same, I might actually sell my Nexus 5 in order to get this. It is also suppose to support LTE-A & VoLTE as well according to the Asus press today at CES

    Would the Padfone be anything less than the last gen. which was like ~$900? No way I'd spend that much....

    Tough to tell, but being on AT&T means you could get a subsidy on it or use the installment plan.

    I would love one of those like the concept but that price ... that's a hard pill to swallow

    The cold weather took out the internet lay night at about 11. So I figured no big deal I'll just have my laptop run off my phone since I'm rooted. Turned on hotspot and I got the I don't have that service message.

    Here is the link. Although in all honesty, even the youtube video was confusing to me and I had to dig through the whole thread that's linked in the OP to finally get it. (I'm not familiar at all with using Cygwin terminal, which is required.)

    Took me about 2 hours of hit & miss and it was pretty frustrating. (The easy root trips KNOX so I just kept at it because I didn't want to risk voiding the warranty.)

    I rooted the T-Mobile version. Which happens to be the only carrier that hasn't updated the firmware, I believe, since its release. I think if you're past a certain firmware, it trips KNOX either way.

    Click on the link in the OP and you'll get the okay'd firmwares.

    hee hee hee. I do think I was happiest with the Note 3. When I switched from Verizon to T-Mobile, they didn't have it in stock so I went with the G2, and then, well, it just snowballed.

    I think I'm okay now. I think I'm good.
