    OT Response to Elle:
    Hey Elle,

    My wife is an ER veterinarian, and having accompanied her to the hospital on many late-night emergency calls (I go with whenever she feels uncomfortable with a potentially wacko client), it is such a wrenching feeling to watch struggles like this unfold.

    Thank you for being such incredible parents to Lucy, thank you for taking her to prompt expert medical care, thank you for getting the word out about Jambalaya. Lucy could not have been in better hands. Our thoughts go with ya.

    Finally caught up after a few days. Everything I'm about to say has probably been covered. I guess that's the nature of the beast.

    Someone mentioned Verizon has an exclusivity deal for the iPhone 4s. That's not true. The two people I know who have them are on Sprint and AT&T.

    As for Google Wallet delaying the release, if true, that's pretty annoying for me. I looked into it and would have to get an account with another bank to use it. Not going to happen. If Isis just dumps charges onto my Verizon bill, that's useless for me too. So it's like they are delaying for features I'll never use. I DO like having the option to use both so Google could add Wallet later and it would be acceptable to me.

    As for Grimm, good show! We just discovered it and have enjoyed it. Have the two from this week recorded, just waiting for time to watch them.

    It seems like my life consists of waiting for others right now. Waiting for Verizon to release the stupid GNex, waiting for Logitech to update my stupid Revue, waiting for Asus to release the stupid Transformer Prime. I see a pattern there, all Android. Hmmmmm.

    To quote Inigo Montoya, "I hate waiting!"

    I called a bunch of RadioShack outlets. One salesman said to me: yeah I have the phone. But if I sell it RadioShack loses its license to sell Verizon.

    My mission is to do no harm. So I'm done asking.

    Thanks. If the haptic is good there's a pretty good chance the notification will be ok too. And it will take some getting used to the light at the bottom rather than the top like my Dinc

    Actually I would want the latest software on a new computer, but I understand the point you're trying to make. Of course, my dh works in IT so if I have trouble he always helps me out. I do get tired of hearing, "How many times have I showed you how to do this?" lol Sometimes it's just easier to have him do things that I would eventually figure out on my own.

    I played with the GN a few days ago and loved it, but all I did was open the browser to surf a little. I just wanted to see how fast it was. The whole time I was playing with it, they sales rep was talking to me...setting an appointment that has since been canceled due to the delay, showing me accessories and seeing what else I would be interested in buying. I would love to hold it side by side with a Rezound when it finally comes out so I could see the difference.

    Just trying to help so this doesn't go bad quickly. I'd really hate to see this thread shut down before we went the distance. ;)

    the New Baltimore Football team is dominating the Old Baltimore Football team. Maybe I'll head over to Best Buy at half time and try my luck.

    Lol, maybe you need to change your sig to:

    Apple tells people what they want, Microsoft asks what people want, Google gives people what they want after waiting two months.

    I too am interested if others have tried this yet and had success. Someone said yesterday that the Verizon rep they spoke said this was a Midwest promo only. We should email Verizon cs to ask

    400 of your closest internet friends are already there. ;)

    But feel free to try, as long as it doesn't get anyone in trouble.

    I just went to radio shack and touched my first GNex. It felt great just like the first time that I touched my dinc.

    So true. At this point all the hassle to try get one a few days early(hopefully) just isn't worth it to me. Plus we have football today, so today will fly by....

    Lions broke the 0-16 barrier (eclipsing the previous 0-14 Bucs), but Indy is giving it a good run.

    Neither have I. But I do freely admit I'm not pushy and don't have the social skills to convince people otherwise. :eek:
