Blues is ensconced in the 50 Shades trilogy. How are you Early?
If I knew, I would tell you first.
Actually getting a kick out of anime on my phone. Playing with some interesting phone mods. Surviving birthday month for my clan.
How am I? I think that I am over being guilty about not getting yard work done.
All work and no play makes Jack ajdroidx a dull boy
Watch this lady get attacked by wolves. Not what you think
Reunion between Anita and the wolves - YouTube
I got Mediashare to work with it nexus for videos, music and Mediashares built In apps to utilize Dlna to our new tv. But, l still can not view pictures. Does anyone know what format our Jpegs are? My Sharp Aquos tv does not support progressive format jpegs and I am wondering if that is what the Nexus takes pics in?
Huh. I use Skifta for my DLNA link to my Samsung UN55D8000 and it shows Nexus pics just fine. Not sure if the format compatibility is a non-issue for me since they're both Samsungs, but I thought I'd throw it out there. Hope you get it figured out... DLNA is a neat feature to have
I had the same issue with skifta, plays everything but pictures. Actually, I tried all of the media servers for android and none would play the pictures. Skifta was actually a little buggy for me. The book for the sharp aquos lists the media files the tv can play, but I don't know which jpeg the Nexus is. Dlna is very cool though, especially the HD videos on a 70 inch screen.
You know folks, I really can't recall if I brought this up before so forgive me if I did:
I installed a NEAT little browser add-on on my laptop called Do Not Track +, and it is absolutely amazing. I had no idea so many companies were tracking my surfing behavior!
Do Not Track Plus
Facebook is notorious for tracking you across hundreds of websites... along with hundreds of other companies that want to know where you go, what you do there, how long you do it, and where you go next. Then they sell all that info on you to the highest bidder. Quite frankly, I don't think it's any of their friggin' business!
Example: I installed it five days ago and so far, DNT+ has blocked over 11,600 tracking attempts on my laptop!
Anyway, it's free, it's small, and it supports most of the major popular browsers. Even if the naughtiest thing you do online is read BB's innuendos, is it really their place to track you and sell YOUR information... without at least sharing the proceeds with you?
We have an app for DC Metro that generally works well. Today it told me 30+ minutes for a bus. Thankfully I got one in just a few. Interesting day today and I'm sure a crazier one tomorrow.
Hello Nexus family, just wanted to drop in real quick and say hello. I know it's been a little while since I've posted. I've been around but have been busy with my last week of work. I start my new job tomorrow and while I'm a little nervous, I'm very excited!
Lots been going on lately, and I'll catch youse up later, but just wanted to post a little something for BabyBlues (well, it's for everybody, but she's directly responsible). I finally had this made up, I got it yesterday, and added it to the multitude of stickers on the back of my car today. Taken, of course, with my Galaxy Nexus. Enjoy!
I squealed to see that in an actual sticker!! Awesome!!
I thought wifey wanted to steal your phone?
Thanks! And thank YOU for designing it for me!
Nice to meet you Lucky Armpit!! I am kinda new here! (hi to EarlyMon too)!
Anyway 2 things, congrats & GOOD LUCK on your new job tomorrow!!
2nd thing, that is the coolest bumper sticker ever!! You rock!!
Have fun tomorrow (today), you'll do awesome! :thumbup:
Well, my Heels lost yesterday. I'm not terribly surprised. KU is my 2nd favorite team (lived in Lawrence for a couple years). Saw some shots of all the partying they were doing downtown on FB. Looks like a lot of fun. I just really don't want Kentucky taking it all, not a fan.
Did anyone see Hunger Games this weekend? I'm hearing all types of hype and criticism over it. Don't really have a desire to see it but wondering folks' thoughts.
Good morning all!! Sorry to those who were not happy about the outcomes of the basketball games. (I have no idea who is in what place but I know some of you follow quite closely).
I hope everyone had enjoyable weekends. I am almost done with book 2 of 50 Shades of Gray. Whew, is it hot!, but there is definitely a good plot and underlying themes in it as well. Thanks for putting it on my radar. Short week for me - Friday is no work (YAY!!).
Hehe, thanks phandroid for this story. Brightened my morning a little.
Galaxy Nexus smokes Windows Phone, Microsoft backpedals
How's your lake?
Smaller, but still there almost 48 hours after it stopped raining. Thankfully we should be completely dried out by the time the next rain is predicted to arrive... oh look at that, saturday and sunday... stupid rainy weekends.
Wow, so quiet in here today.
Yeah, rainy weekends are not fun. I hope all stays ok for you.
I know. I keep checking and nothing... ..wake up people!!!!
I have this stupid thing preventing me from being mor active today. Stupid work
