    If it has not already been mentioned, caffeine consumption can create a metal taste.

    One of the best natural remedies came from Australia (Tea Tree Extracts/Oils). I'm sure over there any symptoms of anything imaginable (almost) can be cured with that amazing plant!

    It's tough for me to wrap my head around, really. I've lived here my entire life, and it's always been so odd to me. We medicate ourselves to death. I've seen reports that pharmaceutical drugs cause more deaths than cancer/yr. Usually by some botched mixing of them. I don't know the validity of these reports, as I have not read them...but yeah

    He means you can't go wrong with better on Friday because (if it is for sure one of those two) it's a win win situation..

    Win1- It comes out early..

    Win2- It comes out period..(Friday)

    Also you have to ask yourself, who has been really reliable in this whole fiasco.

    yeah traffic was insane that day, there were other events going on downtown, plus all the construction like usual. they used shuttles (bus) to move everyone into the stadium from other parts of the city. It was a solid 12 hr day.

    So I hate to say it, but if Friday is the day, then Friday is not the day. Logic Follows.

    The "day" is Thursday. If Thursday is not the day, then it means it is delayed again. Friday is just the next possible day. But it is only the next TARGET, not the official day. Tomorrow, we will find out Monday, or Tuesday is the day. Verizon hasn't resolved whatever issue has been the cause so far, and they are just slipping the dates. They must think its close, to only slip the dates one day at a time. Or maybe they are just messing with us, giving us the impression the fix is close, when slipping the date day by day is just their way to keep interest in the phone from waning until they actually have the fix, which could still be a week or more away.

    For those who say Thursday is just a rumor, sorry, but CLEARLY they have told their third party retailers that is the target date. So like I said, if the target date is now Friday, then Friday is not the day.

    I hope to inspire that kind of statement one day. Your wives can all roll their eyes but I hope they know how much you love them.

    I am always lurking. :rolleyes: I think that the GNex does not have the hardware to support the current widget, so I cannot get any data. I will confirm that now with people who have the phone.

    And people got calls from managers of stores. Not saying he's wrong but he has no more validity than any other person saying the same thing.

    I am not sure if anyone mentioned this or not.

    I have been wrapping my head around why Verizon has not promoted this phone at all. It could be a really big sale to regular people not just geeks like us. So I started thinking why are they keeping it silent and going with a silent launch it makes no sense at all. Then it hit me well not really because see I work for Verizon not on the cell side but in a diff side. Not sure if any of you know about the ewa work stoppage they had back in august but my life was a living hell for about 2 plus weeks haha as I am non union employee working a job half way across the country for a union employee on strike. The strike while it ended did not really end. They have yet to sign a contract and are still trying to hit Verizon where it hurts on the wireless side. When the iphone 4s came out they hit VZW stores hard with add campaigns of VZgreedy, Iwon'tupgrade, and picketing stores. I am wondering if they are trying to keep as much hype from this phone out of the public so the union won't pound them with tons of people at the stores trying to harass customers. I may be way off but still I could see this happening.

    He said he heard Thursday and Friday (but more inclined towards Friday). No one source has been correct on a launch date yet. The only way to know is to, well, wait till that day comes around.

    Really don't want to be a downer but we have heard of a lot of stores getting emails. Until Verizon says something, its not set
