    Thanks. Does anyone know where the TB camera stands as far as picture quality goes? I don't mean to beat a dead horse but if the TB's was considered middle of the road, I think I will be happy with the SGN's camera.

    I laughed when i read that... I then i looked around me and realized I'm in a half empty condo alone with a glass of wine having just been served my final divorce papers... I think im inside a lifetime movie! All that's left is finding out my bf isn't at the office right now and is off with my best friend.

    We are convinced we live in Lifetime movies and Han is a flirt... nothing on the Gnex front though!

    No, that's too tame. What's left is your mother calling you to finally tell you that she gave up a boy for adoption years ago, and she searched for him, and finally found out where he lives, what a coincidence!, and his name is. . . .:eek:

    Sadly, I think we are going to hit 50k before even an announcement from Verizon. :/

    Is the unlock method for the GSM Nexus gonna be the same for the Verizon Nexus. I have already downloaded the files needed and am very excited to turn this phone into mine when it arrives.

    I feel all grown up now. Is hitting the 100 post count, the forum version of puberty? If so my voice is cracking.:D

    On the topic of docks, any news of a dock that actually makes use of those pins along the side of the Nexus? I find it mildly stupid to see these micro USB docks, but nothing for the pogo pins.

    Why include them if you aren't even releasing a dock for them?

    It would seem pointless to include pogo docks and not have accessories to utilize the but i bet they're just waiting in the wings. I has to be something for them to use.

    There was a video on youtube that somebody posted in this thread where the reviewer showed a dock that utilized the pins.

    Actually the new Rez and old Thunderbolt both use a Qualcomm MDM9600 LTE radio, but for whatever reason the Rez radio is reported to be muuuuuch more reliable, able to hold an LTE signal under poor conditions, and less of a battery hog.

    Android itself has always supported multi-core, but the native browser hasn't been coded to exploit them until ICS and I think the latest update to Gingerbread. ICS for the first time leverages the graphics hardware for user interface acceleration. For both of those reasons, yes -- older phones will get a nice performance boost when upgraded to ICS (assuming they have some minimal amount of RAM available: OG Droid disqualified).

    Possible but I don't see why. Hasn't stopped fruit phones from shipping. ;)

    Well said. Of course, Rezound's Adreno 220 totally destroys GNex PowerVR SGX540, cuz as we all know the 540 is like 2yrs old and can't move many pixels around. Don't thank me Early, just trying to spread some chip wisdom around. :D

    Short answer: It was a clever hack, it made me laugh, and now I'm asking 3vil to please execute a reverse script to remove all of his thanks from this thread.

    Really, if someone wants to mess with their own user login to do something creative, then go for it! But I didn't ask for all of these Thankses, I didn't earn them, and it renders the whole mechanism useless. It really shouldn't be up to any one person to decide for themself that some forum feature is to be made irrelevant for every other forum participant.

    3vil, if you want to be clever about it, you could have some mercy heuristic where your script declines to remove someone's thanks if that would leave them at zero. Actually, the best idea is probably to remove your thanks from every post where nobody else thanked the same post. You do that and no harm no foul. Deal? :)

    Yeah i saw that but didn't feel like fixing it. Lol. swift key is great but it's adding strange things sometimes. Like automatically adding an 'i' after a period and screwing up my sentences.

    Congrats! And I love seeing he is named Austin. I'm a bit partial to that name though.


    I have been having the same problem lately. It's been acting up since the last update.
