Okay. I'm so busted!
Sorry, but I have to pimp you on this one. I'd be embarrassed to tell you how many times I saw the original Star Wars in the theater and I don't remember any Hans.
I do remember that the captain of the Millennium Falcon was HAN Solo.
Eh, when I was a kid...
My first laptop was too heavy to put on your lap. Weighed about 25 pounds and was slower than molasses.
Admittedly pimped, but Harrison Ford was dreamy as Han
Good Morning all. My location services are acting up again, my phone thinks I'm in Houston now. It really gets on my nerves. Also, what if any, third party weather app do yall use. I have been using weather Channel, but lately the radar refuses to update unless I force stop and reopen the app.
Did you know that the word "blockbuster" didn't even exist until 1977? It was first coined to describe Star Wars, as people lined up around the block to wait in line to see it at the theater.
Now it's a common term - but if Star Wars hadn't been released, we may never have heard the word.
Now you know
Good thing George Lucas isn't as patent anal as Apple is, or Blockbuster would have been sued like crazy
Good morning! I use the weather in Beautiful Widgets which is Accuweather. Was giving me geolocation problems yesterday but otherwise it is usually really good
Morning everyone! Finally got my much awaited update for my Prime. Excited to see what changes there will be. It's funny this is probably only the second time I've forced an OTA with any of my Android devices (only one of two that isn't rooted). This thing really is a beast. Anyone looking for a tab, I highly recommend it, but also probably wait for the T700.
After being on a bit of a Star Wars book binge lately, I really wish Lucas would green-light more movies. And preferably stay out of their way. I think it's very telling that the movie that is the most generally beloved, Empire Strikes Back, was the only one that Lucas didn't direct.
After reading a book last week, I wanted to watch Episode I and II before starting the next book. I couldn't force myself to do Episode I. I tried. But then Jake Lloyd came on, and I just had to fast forward it to the Darth Maul fight scene. And then I turned it off.
That kid was the most horrible actor I've seen in I don't know how long.
P.S.: I've gotten quite a few requests for the Dark Lord Trilogy. It's just easier if I do it this way:
Here you go!
Actually, Return of the Jedi was directed by Richard Marquand, not George Lucas.
So there were two
Yeah I am getting geolocation errors with that as well (My homescreen is Sense-like ) Kind of annoying. But does that have radar? when I click on the weather, it just takes me to a detailed forecast.
Good morning all. Wow I feel really young after all that talk of HS reunions and stuff. I'm still 4 years away from my 10-year reunion, eek. Doubt i'll go to any of them although I'd love to show off how well I am doing, but meh.
Got OSX running on my netbook and running a bit more stable in a VM on my desktop so all is well for now. Trying to scrounge up some old PC parts from my house to see if I can piece something together so I can have all my desktop's power back though.
Also got a flat yesterday at around 7PM and because of my air suspension I don't have a spare. I was luckily very close to a tire shop who was able to plug the tire for a very inexpensive $10 - made what could've been a horrible situation turn out surprisingly well.
More training today - waiting on some 4.0.4 gummyNex love. Hoping to see some great performance increases too!
Check for an update to BW. I updated mine a few days ago and those Geolocation errors all went away.
Oh yeah, you're right! Ugh, the Ewoks. . . .
I was used to FAST contact dialing on my Incredible - where i could start typing the name of someone in contacts from the phone key pad and the phone would instantly limit the list from hundreds of contacts to the one I needed just by turning the phone on and going to phone button.
Don't know if this was an HTC add on, Incredible only feature or it was embedded in Android 3 but it's no where to be found on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus S. Any thoughts?
Unfortunately there is no Samsung Galaxy Nexus S - there is a Galaxy Nexus and a Nexus S but not a combo-phone. BTW these are not support forums, but rather just random chit chat for the phone owners.
But for your information quick dialer (like you described) is an HTC Sense feature. It has been added in most custom ROMs for Galaxy Nexus via the CM9 team.
I use Dialer One from the market. Not only does it allow me to dial contacts by typing their name, it also allows me to to set up speed dials.
Checking on some tips and updates for my Prime at XDA and stumbled on this thread:
Sometimes you just need to take out the trash. - xda-developers
Very frustrating place. So glad we're a much better behaved bunch.
Anyone watch AI last night?
I don't know why, but I'm just not feeling Jessica. Just no frakking connection with the song. And I can't stand her "Oh, thank you, your ovation was so unexpected!" hand over her mouth at the end of the song. Please, go home!
Although I think it's the end of the line for Deandre.
This is what I mean:
OMG! I can't believe it!
I don't watch AI after the tryouts.
Yeah, those are entertaining. This season is pretty talented. Last year wasn't that good.
Some amazing talent this year on AI for sure. I sing and play guitar and have always been surrounded by music (and partly the business) and I love the show!
Jessica, have you Google'd her? She's already got quite a history in the music business doesn't seem fair. She's gotta hella voice though wow.
Love Heejun! Voice is unmistakable and his tone is what I call perfection.
Love my fellow GA boy he's a younger version of me, seriously He's all about the music, can't believe what Stevie said about him last night!
Colton is special as well. His love for worship made me a huge fan last night even though I already was a fan.
I'll leave it there, each one of these singers could have a music career EASILY.
Heejun does have a nice quality to his voice. My wife and I think that the top 3 deserve to be Elise (she did AWESOME last night!), Colton, and Philip. Hollie is right there, too, but she hasn't been as consistent as she could be.
P.S. Yeah, I read somewhere that Jessica was on America's Got Talent, but I haven't watched that too much.
P.S.S.: I was hoping that Colton would remove the skunk from off his head, but after Stevie said she loved it, I don't think that pile is going anywhere.
So OVER little Jessica. Yuk.
For me (the "older" set ), Elise Testone killed it with the LedZep cover. But a rocker, especially with Janis undertones, has never made it all the way.
Hey Nexicans! I have been lurking but finding little time to post.
Just got caught up today!
Congratulations BB on post 10k. Han, glad you didn't ninja. Steven...please stop just poking your head in and running away. I won't comment the events that occurred after post 10k. Not for the Watering Hole. Hey...where is Razor?
/stream of thought.
jbdan: So I play acoustic and have been a singer for my whole life and I agree that the talent has been great this year! Do you write any originals?
Han: How's the weather?
