    George Lucas gonna sue somebody! Hamill's cameo there is awesome. Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season... Yeah. Fun movie. That one and Mallrats are the two just fun movies in that series.

    I think that most, if not all, of these sources were right - at the time.

    Even Kellex is saying that the release dates have changed many times. Can't expect them to predict the future, only to report what they hear.

    This makes me very happy! I do not have anything against Verizon but I work in a large, spread-out building/campus with LOTS of interference. Cell phone reception is terrible unless you are near a window. AT&T is the only carrier that works well on site since they installed repeaters through out the site.

    Now if we can only find out the exclusivity details. Does it really exist? LTE only? How long?

    Actually, being worthy doesn't necessarily give you the powers of the thunder god. One has to be worthy to just be able to even pick up the hammer. Odin can bestow the power to select people he deems worthy. Captain America, for example, has lifted the hammer before without gaiuning any power from it.

    and it COMPLETELY destroys the flow of the thread, including being able to follow anything OT in a supposed "lounge" thread. Again just my opinion and I'll let it drop before I turn as black as han :p

    You made you point days ago. No need to keep harping on the guy on every post he makes. If you have an issue with him PM him or the Mods.

    I think Verizon's exclusivity window is closing pretty quickly. Their own fault.

    I'd expect AT&T to get it probably in 30 days, if they are reverting back to the old FCC "rule".

    I watched it, But i can not understand what he is saying.
    From what I can say it is just a charging dock and a waste of money.

    I am thinking we could get the "Hide" possibly lifted, but I would like some help from others here.

    I currently Try to quote any relevant info to http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-nexus/455326-pre-release-relevant-info-thread.html and I have no problem continue doing this. Any volunteers to help be "Curators" for the relevant posts?

    I enjoyed skimming the OT chatter, but after the Hide mandate, I gave up. It was what made this thread so enjoyable (for me anyway). Maybe I'm just lazy, but maybe we can find a better way too.

    Which is maybe why initial pictures showed "Verizon Exclusive" on them, then the Exclusive was quickly removed.

    2.0 and 2.1 were both called the same thing. .1 doesn't mean a new name.

    Yes it does. That HDMI dock looks awesome. Now you don't need to have an MHL adaptor if using that. Playing movies on my HDTV through that - heaven :)

    Seriously. You know some 45 year old single marketing exec probably thought of it and chuckled to himself of how cool and futuristic it sounded, and misspelled it because spelling things 2 teh xtreme iz kewl!
