    So is the Q just basically a big external hard drive that you can beam with?

    The Q is very awesome for those with high speed non-tiered data at home.

    Also, anyone seeing the Nexus 7 in the play store yet? I want to order, lol

    I wonder if they would take $100 for just the Fire - er - I mean, Nexus 7, and they can keep their credit, book, and movie?

    Eventhough this is a variation on the standard Android interface on the Nexus 7, I imagine it is easily rootable and there will be tons of support for it in the dev community. I see AOKP soon!

    I don't know. . . I'm struggling to find the difference between this Q and my Gateway laptop, other than having friends annoy you by switching up your song list.

    Besides, I stream Pandora from my Nexy to my surround sound system via a simple cable already.

    Did they really not give the developers that year's Nexus device?! Woah I thought that did that every year.

    Yep, that's the only reason I'm considering it, honestly. The specs by themselves don't impress me much, but the dev support for this will be out of this world.

    Gah, new interface?? Am I the only one seeing this??

    EDIT: Actually, you know what, I really like this change. It's much cleaner and softer on the eye.

    I really like Google Now. I just wish I lived in a big city and/or my life was important enough to need to use it :D
