    Yes, you do hit a nail. Most of the rest of the world uses GSM, but like you say even if AT&T comes out with a version of LTE, their phones will still be GSM based, unlike alot of Western Hemisphere providers who use CDMA. VZW, USCC, Telus, Pelephone, Vivo, Metro, Cricket, etc.

    I'm no expert on cameras, but you have to realize you're recording in 1920x1080 with something that's the size of a pinhole. Don't expect superb quality.

    I am running Win7 64 bit. I have Malwarebytes and Norton, always running scans. Also I should add, it was pissing me off so much I reformatted my HDD 2 weeks ago, and the issue is still here.

    If it were a DNS issue, wouldn't all 3, Chrome, IE, and Mozilla just not work altogether? They all work, they just randomly cut out. sorry if I left that out, that is kind of a major thing to leave out, haha...But that what is happening. I am posting from my computer now and it is working fine, it's just random when it decides to cut out. I even have a laptop right next to me so I know that it is just my computer that is losing (just web browsing) internet.

    Sounds to me like you and whomever you talked to (you do have a name written down as well as the date and time?) regarding the phone entered into an oral contract for you to pick up the phone tomorrow. If I went in tomorrow and was denied, I would be understanding and not get upset. At this point in time you have a disagreement between the two parties. I figure that I had been damaged around $100 and that the store could issue me a credit for when the phone arrived. Make sure that you take notes while you are having the discussion taking down names and documenting what was said. I would then stop at your local version of a District Justice court and fill out the paperwork for breach of contract suit as you had placed justifiable reliance on the store that your phone would be ready for pick up . (You double checked and triple checked with them, even gave them ample opportunity to back out of the agreement right?) Since you have been damaged additionally by this time, make it out for $150. Hopefully the store will see the error of their ways (or your phone will be available:D) and you can be happy and skip the last step. If not, eventually the suit will reach someone with the authority to settle and at least you'll be compensated for your getting the run around. Extreme? Maybe. But if no one holds their feet to the fire, they will continue to do stuff like this to their customers. I used to let stuff like this happen to me all the time. Finally got tired of it. I bet that if it does result in paperwork filed, it will be a lot less likely to happen to someone else in the future, at least at that particular store. It is very satisfying when the settlement check arrives and they finally acknowledge that they were the bad guys(girls). And it usually only goes to the manager of the store. If you adequately and appropriately present your case to him/her, they will usually take care of it on the spot.

    So, whenever I'm some place new, I like to try and find the local brews and see what the area has to offer. I gotta say, North Carolina disappointed. Maybe I just picked wrong, but I had the Big Boss Angry Angel, a bland, average beer to me. Very drinkable, just nothing special. I also had the Duckrabbit Amber Ale, which again was good, but nothing that set it apart. Maybe I've just gotten to the point where unless a brew is doing something special I'm not surprised, but the beers were just average. Or maybe I've just moved onto enjoying a different type of beer more, like pale ales of all sorts. Like the Sweetwater 420 I tried, which is actually out of Georgia, but that was one good beer. Just enough hoppiness to add a nice kick, but nothing overwhelming where it ruined the taste afterwards.

    I saw ONE response of that in ONE thread. It was also playing on a 3rd party player, so no idea if it has anything to do with the Nexus hardware at all.

    Not buying that yet.

    I think the image stabilization is just very poor.

    Here is a better example of the issue:
    Samsung Galaxy Nexus video recording sample and issue - YouTube

    Hopefully, this can either be disabled, or can be fixed in a future update.

    The reason it is working for other applications is because they use a different port than HTTP. Try to flush you dns by loading up cmd and typing
    ipconfig /dnsflush

    I would definitely pursue another vet if they are attempting to make you come in twice a year for checkups. We had a somewhat similar issue with a vet here for our "babies" and just found a different vet that we love now. Also to the contacts thing the thing that separates contacts from glasses in the prescription needed to continue is the fact that contacts physically touch your eyes thus making potential for harm that much greater. My wife and I just make sure to get a new pair of glasses every couple of years just to ensure that if contact issues arise we have a good back-up plan in place. Just somethings to chew on.

    This is far fetched and delusional, but let's assume corporate became infuriated at the sight of confidential, leaked emails and documentation of a phone they claim 'is as important as the iPhone launch.' They take immediate action to 'shut everyone up', and sends an email out in the spirit of, "Say a word, we'll fire you." They tell everyone, from corporate down to the janitor that no one is to give the December 9th date out and everyone is to say 'coming soon' effective immediately. They 'push' a fake delay leak out--tossing up several possibilities (4G outage, Apple lawsuit, Google Wallet, etc) in hopes that the leaks and 'confirmed' release date is brought to a screeching halt.

    Given the events of today, we have some stores who have checked their emails from after the corporate meeting that give no delay and are still claiming December 9th as the date, some who originally scheduled appointments and are now saying, "We don't know. Don't call back here ever again. Leave us alone," and a divide in CSR responses saying tomorrow is the day while others say next week or 'coming soon'. We know the phones are in stock. The 4G network is stable. There is no other possible reason for the phone to be held up.

    So, maybe if we close our eyes really tight, find a star, and wish on it our dreams will come true?

    If you're around NC again, you should give Lone Rider a try. Their Shotgun Betty is really good if you're into hefeweizens. Red Oak Amber has also become a regular beer for me. I've passed their brewery a couple times on the way to Charlotte.

    mostly because The Mask is the first PG-13 movie I ever saw. watched it at my cousin's house when i was about 11... i have found that scene, and cameron diaz in general, particularly interesting ever since. ;)

    I agree w/the others, could be DNS issue. While using Google's DNS may(?) be a good choice, it's also possible that rebooting your cable modem (and router) will help.

    I doubt they do LTE in Canada. I checked the coverage maps and it doesn't show any LTE. But I could be wrong.

    Forgive me, but those 'reports' do not amount to an official announcement by VZW. No offense meant here, I'm just saying. . . . . .

    No. . .I didn't see it in a thread, it was an article somewhere. But you're probably right, it might end up being something like that stupid USB cable thing. Who knows.

    I just found something on the main website of the Galaxy Nexus!!!!

    On the main screen, bullets 2-3 all say "Buy Now" instead of Register! Not sure what this means, but they could be close to release.

    http://www.google.com/nexus/ (Fixed the link)

    Here is a screenshot!
