    well, what do you know?!? I just clicked on the "updates..." and it found the JB update. downloading it now (in Baysides, NY)

    I have the Nexus 7 so I already have (and used to 4.2). For those of you who are expecting *great* differences from ICS, you're going to be disappointed. JB is smoother and more intuitive to use, but it's not a drastic change from ICS.

    have fun everyone.

    Installed this morning, so far seems very smooth and painless, I did notice my battery is still at 2% after about 1.5 hours of light operation...will report on battery life when further along but so far I'm liking it.

    So far I have not noticed any change in battery life. I heard it was supposed to improve with JB. I guess no change is better than a decrease...

    Woke up this morning and had it ready to install. Install went smoothly.

    Haven't played with it much yet. Noticed that the circle widgets on the home screen are gone and the clock is now digital, ala S3's modern tech font (which I hate.)

    JB downloaded and updated in New Hampshire! So far noticed a couple small things: Sound/silent/vibrate switch on the lock screen has moved to the top left side which I like because I'm left-handed so easier one-hand operation; Google search bar changed to a solid opaque which I don't like and will see if I can change back to just the outline; camera seems exactly the same as ICS - I thought the look was going to change based on some posts I'd read; no real noticeable difference in speed but then I never had any problems or lagginess with ICS anyway; The back/home/recents buttons have changed a little bit and look a little different; Light Flow was turned off - turned it back on but have yet to test; battery seems about the same but will know more tonight after a day's worth of normal usage. I'll report back later on that.

    That's odd - my Circles widget was still there and looks exactly the same.

    They're back!!! Apparently there was an app update that needed to be done? (But don't see that in my notification list.)

    I should have taken a screen shot of the clock when the update first completed downloading.
