    The thing that baffles me is Amazon's shipping confirmation email tells me a guaranteed delivery date... If bad weather hits the package doesn't make it.

    I understand its out of their hands once they ship it, but don't put a guaranteed delivery date if your relying on another company to fulfill the guarantee :rolleyes:

    I'm not angry about it being late, it just doesn't make any sense that they'd guarantee delivery

    App submitted to the Apple app store - fingers crossed. Based on some website estimates, review time is approximately 5 days. So hopefully around the 22nd I will hear back and hopefully it is not rejected.

    I think it's pretty easy to get a refund on shipping if they guarantee a date of delivery, but it's still a hassle.

    I wish they could do same-day delivery. I thought there was a whole thing a while ago about doing same-day, with so many distribution centers now in place.

    Or at least start the drones.

    Something.

    I've been watching a lot of Chopped on Amazon Instant Video. I know I could never do it because when it comes to cooking I am not that imaginative and I'm horrible at putting the right spices together. Getting out of cooking was a good choice on my part.

    You ever see something like chopped teenage show? Imagine the same show, but with kids!!! Those kids are some real good cooks, but add that stress to the mix it gets intense.
    However I seen those kids deal with mishaps better than some adults.

    Never heard of that one? I liked the kids version of MasterChef Australia. It was amazing to see what kids as young as 7 or 8 were doing!

    Just the other day I was thinking about the great VZW Galaxy Nexus thread we had and looked up that hilarious Hitler video someone made. It's crazy that this watering hole thread is still up and going.

    Here's the Hitler video

    Congrats to Halon, who wrote Post 33,333! :D

    This Watering Hole now has the most posts (and views) of any thread in the Lounge - a record broken only by the Epic Galaxy Nexus Pre-Release Thread, which holds the record as the largest thread in AF history!

    Two years and a month ago, BB started this thread. And it's still rocking on!

    :)

    That's sad.

    Ha ha ha! Priceless!!!

    Well, today I had a tweet favorited by John Legere, the boss of T-Mobile.

    I went into Tmo store in NYC and the salesman told they've been mobbed with vzw defectors. He also told me that because legere lives in the neighborhood, he's stopped in a few times. #cool.

    Did you finally make the switch?

    My only regret is not waiting a tiny bit longer so that I could take advantage of the program where they pay people's ETF's.

    But it was still worth it. I'm still amazed at the speeds I get, and call quality is great.

    Agreed 100%. Once they rolled out LTE in my area this past June, I've been 1 happy camper. Though it would have been nice to have them eat some of my $610 etf.

    Everyone is switching to T Mobile.

    And I'm just sitting here waiting for them to make their service viable in my area.
