    I find this very annoying. I email a lot from craigslist so my "contacts" can get cluttered. Yeah I have it set to phone numbers only which is pretty sweet, but when I go to email somebody I can get a long list if i type the right letter. Somedays I go into my gmail or contacts and delete all the craigslists email addresses.

    Wasn't the T Prime pushed back to the 12th - 15th?. I thought I saw something in the news section or a post on it last night.

    The Nexus release has to be Verizon's most secretive silent launch ever. :mad:

    I can remember the Samsung Omnia 2 had a pretty big following and Verizon kept quiet right up until launch day. They have some unusual marketing tactics.

    I couldn't agree more. As a Dev, you're constantly plugging and unplugging. If this doc functions as I'm hoping, it will allow me to stop breaking USB connectors off phones. My old Evo has been resoldered multiple times.

    (Yes you can use WiFi ADB, but I prefer plugging it - my tin foil hat still tells me WiFi doesn't work as well)

    Thanks. If so, that is actually better. I'm not sure I can handle all that gadget fun at once.

    My brother sent me this this morning:

    [​IMG]


    "Look what button showed up yesterday morning in the system."

    Edit: I forgot I have to be specific: He works for Verizon. He works in the call center. Did not describe what the button does, but the phone is now 'in the system' whatever that means.

    I can see that. I don't think the fact that the OG was almost a brick of metal helped though. Mine didn't ever get quite as bad as yours from what I remember. Guess we will have to wait and see. If you love the dock though, I bet there might be ways to modify the back of it so that it can get a little more airflow - just have to get all crafty ;)

    Will that or any of the car mounts work with a case on? Just something to consider when buying one since I became frustrated having to put my case on/off whenever using the gps mount for my OG Droid, that's one of the reasons why I'm looking for a "universal" one for my gnex, and one of the main reasons I bought a spiderpodium mount (until my mom decided she wanted to keep it). :)

    Pushing it allows for stress relief while he waits for the Galaxy Nexus.

    This is exactly why two of my favorite characters are The Punisher and Wolverine - both completely willing to kill (moreso with Punisher, Wolvie holds back sometimes).

    Poll question...sort of...

    So, are you an F5 person or a hit the circular refresh arrow on Chrome person when on this site? Or are you a menu button then refresh person on your cell?

    At work, I'm a mouse on refresh button guy. At home, I'm on my cell, so...
    Just curious cause I've never done this so much in my life. Love this place. :)

    Been awhile since I last posted here, but these docks caught my eye. I'm at work, so I can't really look this up, but do these docks fit both versions of the phone?

    And are they on sale yet or have a price? Thanks!

    Not knowing were your brother works but if he works for VZ then it looks like the button my son told me that showed up yesterday. He is in tech support for VZ and this button is used to flag customers accounts when they call asking for information on the Nexus. Of course the tech states that he has no information except that it is planned for release before years end but then uses this button to flag the account for spam being sent to the customers phone or email account about the upcoming Nexus device.

    If you're gonna add Gladiator, then Drax the Destroyer might as well be added. At least pre-Annihilation.

    A dock or mount to fit all the different kinds of cases? Think about it. At lease Samsung made its docks so the extended battery for the SGII would not hamper it.

    I think when a phone maker designs a phone for its looks he/she does not have cases on its mind.

    I find the different kinds of cases to be amusing. I reserve a front pocket for mine. LG made a rough use phone didn't they.

    On the phone I back out so the app remembers where I was. On the iPad I hit the refresh button on the address bar. On the mac its command + R. On the pc its F5.
