    Odd problem :( I've had my nexus for 4 days... I've loved it so far... earlier my phone was at about 35% battery and I tried to wake it up and nothing... popped the battery out, put it back in and still nothing... plugged it into the charger and after a few minutes I get it to boot up... it says it has 0% battery, when I look at the battery graph it shows where it dropped from the 30s to 0... if this is going t be a regular occurance I may need to go back to my iPhone 4... I love the abilities of android, but if it won't work then what's the use :<( any help here ?

    I am not sure what was running when it ran the battery out. Everything else on that screen looks normal, although the barometer app may have been trying to get a signal or your signal was not so great. However I notice the blue line just below the battery graph? That basically says that something was running...usually an app...that was keeping the phone from sleeping.

    Also, keep in mind that your battery will need to settle over a few days, just let it run out and then charge it completely. Reboots help occasionally, and also try to find out what app is running all the time.

    If you end up rooting the phone there are apps available to tell you more specifics, but for now, keep an eye on what apps show up on that screen. Also make sure that you are only syncing the apps and emails that you need at all times, such things as Facebook, twitter etc that may be struggling for a connection and wipe out your battery pretty quick.

    Welcome to the party, hope your experience gets better, it is worth it!!

    Newly granted Apple user interface patent could cause headaches for Android camp

    If this happens Apple will not stop until they go after any company that makes a cell phone or tablet that has any user interface(UI). I'm thinking Apple needs to be investigated for antitrust. Hell, Microsoft got in-trouble just because of Internet Explorer. But it is okay for Apple to try and stop anyone because they made something that is similar to theirs? When my ipod finally kicks the bucket I am done with anything Apple.

    And the patent office needs to stop it with these frivolous patents. A scroll bar? Seriously?

    I wonder if I can get a patent for any structure made of adobe, wood, metal, brick or cement and has some sort of passageway to get in or out?

    Morning all! Great show last night :)
    My Nexus, on the other hand, ugh. I don't know what I did to make her hate me, but yesterday was a bit of a pain. After switching over to TW recovery from CWM (which was a great decision btw) since CWM 6.0.0.4 completely screwed me over (check the stickies for more info), it's just gone downhill.
    I flashed the JB bootloader, then JB 3.6 plus Gapps. Things went okay though it didn't restore any of my apps (yes, I still don't use TiBa). Then later on in the day I kept getting messages of my SIM not being inserted correctly and the phone would just shut down. Didn't have enough battery life left in it to mess last night so just charged it all night and still have no signal this morning. :(
    Restoring an old nandroid and now getting a No Sim Card message! Guess I'll fiddle with that.
    Edit: popped the SIM out and back in and seems to be all good now. I'll give 3.6 or whatever it's up to another shot later today.

    Morning Dread, you might want to try Vicious 4.1.1 (JB 3.6 AOSP) Gapps are included and do not need to be flashed separately, Installed it on mine yesterday, flawless operation. Everything works! Has some interesting tweaks built in eg ability to boot into recovery from power button or simply reboot. I know easy to do by powering off and then back on either in recovery or not, but kinda cool to just do it with one touch.

    Happy Birthday young Pup! Good Morning Everyone else, its Wednesday!

    Morning all! Got my Nexus 7 in yesterday and it has definitely lived up to the billing so far. This is how a 7" tablet should be made. Feels great as far as weight, build quality, size, and the material they used on the back. The interface is very smooth and very quick.

    It appears Google did some pre-loading for the play store orders. When mine started up, it had my e-mail address that I placed the order with already in it and just asked for my password. Downloaded the Transformers movie and saved a couple of magazines for offline reading. Also went ahead and got a trial subscription to GQ, if I don't cancel in a couple of weeks it's only $21 or so for a year. Haven't figured out how I'm going to spend my $25 Play Store credit. Probably rent a couple of movies for our trip.

    Good morning all - hump day already, eh?

    Had bowling last night and the Devil got me, shot a 666 series over 3 games. Finished with a 10-strike 268 which (as weird as it sounds) annoyed me. I shot 8-spare, then 9-miss. And then 10 perfect strikes in a row. If I made a small adjustment in the first two frames I could've easily shot 300 last night and it would've been my first one ever. Oh well there's always next week, but we did take over first place last night!

    BTW anyone watch Big Brother? New season started last week. Definitely one of my favorite reality shows on TV right now, so many plot twists and surprises!

    Happy Birthday to Evan too!

    666? Nice series! To bad about missing out on the 300.

    HAHA thanks guys. I've been bowling since 6 or 7ish so I've had a lot of practice. Highest game is a 279, highest series is a 747. Never been able to get that 300 - I've been close multiple times, but always one frame gets me.

    One day, one day.

    Happy Bday to Evan!

    In other news, AT&T announced their shared data plans... Any hopes of them forcing Verizon to cheapen up their plans, dashed. In fact AT&T's data costs are higher! (But per line charges are less for smartphones if you buy more than 4GB data bucket)

    Dear Apple,

    Thank you for saving me from my own stupidity by telling me what device I can use, how I can use it, and when and where I can use it. Thanks for that freedom to chose. Oh wait....
