    Also... doesn't it seem like better to use the landscape dock with the side prongs... vs. the portrait with the USB (which can wear out)?

    I WANT IT TOO!!! OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!1111 one one one

    I just watched the video:
    Genuine Samsung Galaxy Nexus Vehicle Dock - ECS-K1F2BEGSTD - YouTube

    IT uses the pins for connection. I think it was the time in the car dock with the cable hanging out of the port that put all the weird pressure on my Droid's port, eventually causing it to break.

    And an audio port! I might actually use my phone for music... have to look into those little features that made me keep my iPod around (gapless MP3 playback, soundcheck-like normalization, shuffle by artist) and see if progress has been made.

    It has a hole for the camera to be usable! Combine that with that time-lapse video feature, and I can make a cute video of every road trip I take.

    I'll have to see if I can find his phone number... the 24 music was cool, but he also did some video game music, one of the James Bond games, and said that it was really fun to do, because he had to compose different feeling movements for each section, depending on how they did in the game.

    I think the hardest part is deciding On vs. Off Topic. There's a gray period and opinions can differ. It's a hard problem to solve, and unique to this situation really.

    It's worth taking a look at, but then if some On Topic stuff gets hidden, I could see complaints saying people are using the Off Topic tag wrong. This particular issue has been around since pretty much the beginning of the Dinc thread.

    Even I was scratching my head watching the first video and reading the comments. It would be rather asinine for the GNex not to auto-rotate when placed into the landscape dock. That would pretty much defeat 1/2 the purpose of the dock for me to some degree. I know the Moto phones used the magnet trick to activate certain dock modes, but I would expect something not requiring a special launcher to be able to handle such in native ICS. I doubt the tester just had rotation turned off, though I suppose that's possible. Someone please tell me what I'm overlooking here.

    Just watched it too! The ports build in is soooooo nice. I hated all the cords dangling around - the OG car mount had you plugging everything straight into the phone, so you'd have to do it everytime you got in. It was really annoying. Best designed car mount I have ever ever seen!

    Do it! :) I wish I was more musically inclined, but it's great to work on the production side of film and entertainment, because I get to hire and work with such cool talented poeple

    By my count, this is the 4th "Testman is down" Cycle. I think that probably ties the Dinc thread. One more of these, and it should be ready for preorder.

    That does look like a very impressive car dock. My biggest fear though is ventilation. My OG Droid would get very hot when navigating, plus my car doesn't have A/C. Summer trips usually resulted in my phone getting so hot that plugged in it lost more battery. So I would run it unplugged with one hand either holding it in front of the fan or hiding it in some shade, then transitioning to plugged in when in it was cool enough.

    That car dock looks like a coffin in terms of trapping in heat.

    I hope they have this in the VZW store, cause it is what I am using my $50 Living social credit for.

    I'll concede the point that there are faster primes than f/2.8 than there are zooms, but f/2.8 is f/2.8 no matter how you slice it. I think you're trying to say that fast is a relative term and relative to what else is available, f/2.8 isn't fast for certain focal lengths but is for others. To that point I will agree, but f/2.8 is still fast at any focal length, maybe just no the fastest.

    Some analysis:

    Estimating from the page source (I did not bother to count), you used about 700 lines of code for those 45 hides. I did do a quick string.length type operation on your code ,and that is about 53480 characters. That is about 427840 bits = 0.0510025024 MB. Now, in terms of page requests, that is =~ 1MB/20 page requests. Using 4.6 x 10^-6 Joules per bit (from here, that is about 1.968064 Joules per page request. Since there are about 39.3 kJ/g for coal, you are wasting 4.8346056

    Just drove in from Lurk City, thought I would stop in for some coffee...
    My DX had a slip and fall accident back in September, so i've been phone-less and rocking my wife's Ipad 2 for net on the go while holding out for the SGN. Also had an Eris previously, and am excited to try out Samsung for the first time after Moto and HTC. Heck, i'm just excited for something that sends and recieves phone calls. Thanks to all the regs in here who've made this forum lots of fun to read. Hope there are some big ol' smiles for us all on the 8th...

    Semi off topic semi on...
    Are you are still thinking the 8th for the Transformer Prime too?
    If so, my head is going to explode from over-geeking that weekend.

    ...although the wife may tell me that the Prime is a family gift FOR CHRISTMAS. I can always use the "but hun, I need to make sure it isn't a lemon, because if it is we won't be able to enjoy it on xmas like you intend." Has worked for YEARS!

    I'm a little disappointed in the desktop and car docks. They allow ZERO room for cases. I own a Nexus One with a case and it's always been a pain in the rear to take it off every time i want to charge or dock it. Why can't they have it be made to accommodate cases in some way? Even having invisible shield on it looks like a really tight fit (read: too tight).
