    I'm making turkey burgers with tzaziki (sp?) sauce. Not sure what to make with them though.

    Would be better if they just skinned it. Probably cost them less in the long run too. It is hopefully at least ICS as that would get them graphics acceleration.

    It would be incredibly funny to see them get sued by a company that cloned their device. It would be twice as funny if they won.

    Spoken like a true male. Mrs Vampire. Our pool parties are quite tame. We enjoy some wine, food and a nice splash in the pool. There are never any shenanigans that that may make one question anyone else's intentions. We are a docile bunch that like to go for a dip every now and again with friends.


    Oh wait.... that's my quilting parties!

    I hope you both tried with WiFi direct & file sharing set to "on" on your phones, otherwise its kind of moot.

    I'll hold off a bit on this TOW and see how it goes. It can be a bit of a distraction for other things I like to get done on AF.:rolleyes:
