    no, i read it over on AC a couple weeks ago. i believe phil was in the convo about it as well, if you consider him reliable or not is up to you.

    let me clarify this as best i can.... from what i read, in march verizon is not stripping away everyones unlimited plan who was grandfathered in. they are simply going to stop allowing for the grandfathering of unlimited into new contracts(like when you buy a new phone subsidized).

    Good observation - they seem to be lacking. Anyone else notice this?

    My Droid X has been wearing a Incipio case since I got it, it's a nice case and they stand behind their product, my case cracked and they sent me a new one very quickly.

    I got an idea for someone who really wants a Galaxy Nexus. Get a job at Verizon, Best Buy, or Radio Shack. Sell yourself a Galaxy Nexus, get fired or quit and go back to your regular job. See if you can pull all that off in one day.

    Florida fans have understood this theory for a while now. Don't bet against him...

    Yes his TEAM has certainley helped him win these games. There is no doubt about that. He doesn't play defense and that DL is unstoppable.

    HOWEVER - its a bit coincidental that after two seasons with much of the same players under Orton they were 17-5. Now Tebow starts and suddenly the TEAM is on 6-1 run and leads their division? He does something more than complete passes, I will leave it to you to figure out the rest.

    I instructed them that it was midwest. So I'm guessing that's the only restriction. $100 is $100, for me it was a no brainer to just see what they say.

    its always worth a few mintues of a phone call... even if it is regional, you might get lucky with an unknowing csr and have it added anyway

    I will bet the farm against him next week. he will be exposed for the crappy QB he really is when he is forced to actually try and score points to keep up with the Pats

    OT Football

    Well, the leading the division thing is more other team's incompetence than Tebow being a good quarterback. Just look at the turn around on defense - all of a sudden, they're not giving up 20+ points per game anymore, and 13 is enough to get the win. I'm not saying you can't win with an average at best quarterback (see Dilfer, Trent and Johnson, Brad), but to say Tebow is winning these games is ridiculous. He's just not losing them.

    On Topic

    I've given up hope on ever hearing anything positive about the Nexus from Verizon. There will be more and more leaks like the video issue that will destroy what we held to be the greatest phone in the history of electronics until we're all so low on the Nexus that we decided to wait for the first Droid device to launch with ICS. It's then that Verizon will finally decide to do a soft launch, but no one will pay attention and we'll end up with bloated phones just like they want. Congrats Verizon, you have crushed our dreams.

    Dexter time.

    I'm really impressed. Its a phone with a camera in it folks. From a PI's perspective I am excited seeing that video. Those distances are in the normal ranges I work with. The first couple of zoom levels are totally usable in my trade. If your doing something wrong and there is a person holding their phone kinda funny.......;)

    I keep hearing about this $100.00 promo and calling 611 and getting a different story folks. Geesh, I dunno.:thinking:

    I don't think it matters what thread we are posting in. Football is in our dna on Sundays.

    On topic I think there would have been more leaks on the legal stuff had that been the case over the weekend. I'm chalking it up to adding more fuel to the hype flame.

    Verizon could have a MasterCard commercial.

    $0 - Steven starting thread
    $0 - Windsock to repeatedly change his mind
    $0 - Threadcount going to 100k

    Having tons of publicity on a phone that will incredibly well. Priceless.

    ...I'm not sure if you've seen the Pats' defense, but, they are not likely to expose anyone as being a horrible QB. NE should win, but, Tebow will also likely have his best passing game of the season against them.

    I'm not even talking about football but all Early said was to stop the fighting about football not to stop talking about it.

    Also, unless you like the sound of crickets we have to talk about something other than Nexus news because there isn't anything to talk about except a lot of bile hatred for the way Verizon has handled this release.

    OT:

    HE drove them down the field 70 yards to score a touchdown at the end of the 4th. HE went 18-24 in the 4th and OT. HE did that, not Prater, not the defense. He obviously had something to do with it.

    You're all forgetting, with the EXACT SAME defense, Orton was 1-4.

    It's because the videos posted were done incorrectly. It messes up the page formatting if done wrong.

    someone asked me for a guide to url hacking here it is

    mods, please verify that this is okay with in the scope of the site, other wise feel free to remove it at your leisure

    Hokay, someone asked for the Zedster guide to url hackery and I thought I would share it with everyone

    First you should have a basic understanding of html, urls, flash, and google operandi. I do not have the space or time to go into those, google around and read up wikipedia articles on those topics if you are unsure


    Tools:
    I like to use firefox as my browser due to the number off add-ons offered
    The Tamper Data add-on for firefox lets you see what data is going where, open it up and browse for a while, eventually you can use this tool to modify http strings and cookies https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tamper-data/
    Java fusker, lets you increment urls, great for finding photos https://members.home.nl/bdr/files/fusker.html
    A image exif tool is also handy, again if unsure read up on exif data

    Steps:
    1. Identify the site and information you are after, lets say are target is the android forums
    2. Go to google, use the site operandi like so Let me google that for you
    3. Look through and get an idea for the layout of the site and how the urls are setup, see if the urls contain object ideas, say like a phone sku
    4. Identify important data, view source and the tamper data will help you see how the site loads pages and what databases and files it pulls from
    5. if you notice xml files, php files, or directories in the view source or url for images explorer them
    6. XML files and PHP files often hold list of links or information that drops downs pull from, looking here can clue you in on the source of images
    7. /image/.... directories if left open give you a nice list of all the images on a site
    8. If the image directories are closed but you notice the images are numerical plug them into the java fusker and see if you can find what you are looking for, the way is works is say the image you have is at www.somewebsite.c0m/image/picture1001.jpg, you plug into the fusker www.somewebsite.c0m/image/picture10[00-99].jpg the fusker will now walk through all those links and display any photo it finds
    9. Flash objects are a lot hard to do, use tamper data to see where the flash is loading from, check if it's an open directory or if it draws from some XML list like VZW does
    10. If you are still having issues locating anything of value go back to google and use the site operandi to search that site “site:siteyouwanttosearch.com search term goes here”

    Other google operandi that may help include filetype: where you can list any filetype(jpg,pdf,torrent,etc....) and google will only return sites of that type! This can be a very very handy tool to use. If you search around google you can find the full list of switches they offer for power users.

    Most importantly remember that humans are creatures of habit and order, websites will have some logic behind them, try to find it and then exploring it should be easy. Do not try to access files hidden behind firewalls or passwords as that is hacking, any files openly facing the web are legally free game (IAMNAL and my word will not help you in court, don't edit, delete or upload content to any website that is not yours!)

    I hope its true but I'm calling BS on the $100.00 off promo on the nexus.

    Maybe on other phones but not on a new release.

    How can their be a promo on a phone that does not exist yet?

    Like I said, I hope it true, even if it would not apply to me as an existing subscriber.

    BS:eek:
