    Maybe a newly installed app running amok?

    Soooo....not to beat a dead horse or anything but when can we expect those darn docks? (The pin supporting ones of course). It seems like they just keep getting pushed further and further back....

    Any chance you're rooted? I ask because I was having random reboots on mine. I've flashed a new kernal and this time left the volts default and I haven't had a reboot in two days.

    Welcome back! Have you read this thread?:
    http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-nexus/484626-bgr-gnex-users-plagued-reboots.html
    Seems it's mostly affecting the GSM version, but some VZW folks have claimed it too. Hasn't happened to me. Don't have any weird apps installed and am running AOKP 20. But, like Ron said, are you rooted and running a custom ROM/kernel?

    I think it's affecting all versions. Mine definitely did it when I first bought it and after I rooted, unlocked, and ran stock and then still after I flashed a ROM. Haven't had one in several days so maybe the last kernel flash solved it.

    Thanks guys. Not rooted. No strange apps that I can think of. Prefer asking you over the 12 year holds at my Verizon store.

    Good morning and Happy Monday everyone!

    Not sure if anyone reads Lifehacker, but I highly recommend you do. Its probably my favorite blog on the Gawker network. Tons of great tips to increase productivity and just cool daily finds, etc. Lifehacker, tips and downloads for getting things done

    I dropped off my W2s for taxes. I was asked if I purchased anything over the internet because PA is tired of losing money for sales tax on internet sales. WHO in the their right mind would say, "Oh yeah. I have. And here is a detailed list of everything I bought. Please take more money from me."


    @BB-did you watch The Wars?

    I use tasker with nfc task launcher. Has anyone noticed that the order you list things under tasker seems to effect whether they work the way you intended in NFC? When I have them execute under tasker they do exactly what i want. However when I load them to a tag as a profile, they do not. I played with the order of the tasks in tasker and that seemed to get the nfc to execute the tasker the way I intended. Does this make sense or is something else causing this to act this way?

    Alabama does the same, except they go a step further and ask if you bought anything outside the state of Alabama...this could go as far as to say if you buy anything from another state, internet or not, then they want you to report it. LOL!! Yeah right!

    Wow...I have not been here in a long time. Hmm...

    So out of that RSRSS 'feed' up there, one article made me laugh and then question the intelligence (or at least tech aptitude) of a whole editorial staff:

    Bolding mine.

    Really? Was Samsung unaware that the GNex was easily unlockable? I can only imagine their surprise when they learned that developers were developing (GASP!) on this phone. Being only the second Nexus Samsung has made, it surprises me that they caught on so quickly. :p :rolleyes:

    Thought you all might enjoy that. I did, and I had to share.

    Same here - I've noticed that same thing. I haven't spent enough time yet figuring out the order that works best. I have my tag turn off 3 apps - sometimes it'll turn all of them off, and sometimes only 1 or 2. Have you figure out any rhyme or reason to the order that works best?

    Here's a thread that has recently touched on this topic a bit:

    Let me know what you find out!

    BTW panorama mode on this camera is ridiculous.

    Took this last Friday afternoon -- missed my train for it, but totally worth it.

    Sweet pic. I agree. Panorama mode rocks on this camera.

    Hey all! Trust you had a good weekend? Mine was fun, took the training wheels off my oldest' bike. He did so well, probably have it down by next weekend at the rate he was improving. I must say, the video quality of this phone is very pleasing to me, as we replayed his progress on my TV last night, it looked better than our camcorder footage.

    I have become addicted (or re-addicted) to Robo Defense, I just wish the levels didn't last so long.

    Taxachusetts tries that too. They call it a use tax. They even tried forcing Town Fair Tire (a regional company I think) into having NH stores charge Massachusetts sales tax for customers with Mass tags because they had stores in Massachusetts.

    Supreme Judicial Court shot them down of that but it does seem nervy.
