    I just got my replacement Nexus today. I don't know if this is good or bad, but the manufacture date is 11/19/11, which is older than the device it replaces. I will activate it here shortly and post the other vital specs.

    **edit** Everything else is identical, except for the manufacturing date -

    Baseband: I515.09 V.EK05 / I515.EK02
    Kernel: 3.0.8-gaaa2611 android-build@apa28 #1
    Build number: ICL53F
    Manufacturing date: 11/19/11

    As a side note, I was trying to download my music again and the phone just absolutely freaked out. It acted as if one was rapidly swiping their finger back and forth over the screen. I couldn't shut it down gracefully so I had to pull the battery. :( Wow, I hope that was just because it powered up and downloaded/installed 20+ apps at once. If not, I'm keeping my old one!

    My replacement was manufactured 11/22/11, a few days before my original one. I can say my screen was better on the replacement and I did not even know the other one was "not good". Blacks were much better and contrast greater. Good luck, hopefully this one will not have any issues.:)

    Awesome. That sort of stuff is one of the reasons why I want to do the UCLA professional program - it's tough to learn as you go I've learned. And if you screw up, it's a pretty big problem.

    Jeez, I guess I'm lucky with this non-sickness. The only time I've left work sick is when I had bronchitis and couldn't talk. The luxuries of working in the restaurant industry.
    Feel better everyone!

    I went about setting up my new Nexus today and I noticed that the screen appears to have a reddish hue. I thought I was seeing things but I put it next to my existing Nexus and sure enough, the new one looks different. Not necessarily bad, but different. I always thought the other one had a bluish hue, lol. Is there any way to adjust that, or is that simply differences in manufacturing?

    I think some of the kernels now have the ability to tweak colors. Pretty sure Lean Kernel and Franco both have that ability. I would try flashing one and adjusting the color on it to see if it helps.

    Anyone have a good suggestion for a quick trip the last week in March? Wife likes beach, or anywhere warm with a pool. I prefer snow, lol. I guess I'll give in and go warm.

    Nothing like SoCal for options. Beach and snow all in the same day. Hit Malibu one day, then next day drive 2 hours to Big Bear to ski/board. Or Palm Springs. Palm Springs could be 80's-90's by then. If you wait to mid-April, you could catch the Coachella Festival. Or avoid it :D

    At the top of the list :) The only problem is the nearest port is so far away we would have to fly...might as well just fly somewhere and stay at a resort if we have to do that :( Cruises used to depart from Mobile, AL which isn't too far, but I haven't seen any departing from there in March.

    Haha, yeah. Gotta take vacations when the wife isn't teaching (which means, we take vacations when college/high school kids do too...). May wait till the summer, but not sure yet.
