Ha! I think I'd get in trouble.
OK, maybe not the big screen, but burned to dvds and distributed to the gang here.
For anyone out there that needs to pull an apk from your gnex to side load to another device, I figured out how to do it. Basically, Siruius xm just released a new apk (first one in forever) but their supported device list is very small. It works flawlessly on the gnex and I wanted to put it on my Asus Transformer running ICS. To do so, I downloaded a free app called File Expert. Then I clicked on the app tab in File Expert and checked the box next to the app that I wanted to save the apk for. It then backed up the apk to / mnt/sdcard/backup_apps. I was able to then email it to myself and open it on the other device. Now we can listen to XM on the tablet as well. This might also be a good solution for when you do not want to upgrade an app, you could save the apk file of the app you are currently using, then allow it to update. If you don't like it, you just re-install the old version. Maybe this can be done with Titanium, I tried, but was not able to figure it out. It did not show it backed up as an apk. File Expert worked great, I can think of a lot of reasons you might want to save an apk file.
Good info, thanks Copacetic.
I'm not sure there's a rating system that would cover what comes out of your head, BB. I say this only because you are, in fact, my long lost sister, and it's almost spooky how alike we think.
I'm pretty sure that would be against the law in 49 states.
True on all counts!!!
Glad you figured it out. You can do the same thing with Astro file manager. Backup the apk and you would be able to put it on another device.

Thanks, I tried in Astro file manager, how do you do it there?
LOL...I was thinking Nevada. 'Errythang's legal in Vegas.
Got into some big trouble at work yesterday; can't really go into it but let's just say it was a crap day. Well, I have today off so at least I'll be able to relax. It's supposed to be pretty rainy all day so maybe I'll do some apartment cleaning. Lord knows it needs it.
Morning Dread and Geek! Sorry about yesterday Dread, hope today is a better one! Hello to everyone else, have a great Tuesday!
Dread, I hope that everything is ok and the trouble was a momentary issue.
Crappy day here too. Makes me wish I could just crawl under the covers again.
Morning all. So this story caught my eye this morning, felt I should share.

Wow, how stupid can you be? Thankfully the little girl wasn't hurt, too many horrific stories of children being killed by family members running over them for this to be taken humorously.
Let's just say it was absolute grounds for firing.
Fortunately, my bosses (and lovely wife) are really supportive.
Wow...sounds like you were very fortunate Dread.
Oh, no. That is definitely no laughing matter.
Oy, weird news and bad days. Let's hope today is better for all. Chin up Dread...
Hmmm. Wouldn't take an adult job offer a year ago to pay off her home, but now that she's filing bankrupcy and getting a clean slate, she'll take anything to put her in a "hug home". smh (that's twice I've had to smh this morning)

If I see another carrier commercial stating they have the "Largest 4G network", I'm gonna puke.
But seeing that T-Mo girl isn't so rough on the eyes.
