    Hoping he buys you the phone. But somehow I think what he's said makes sense. Sad times :cool:

    Lowell McAdam at a press event: Hello everyone I have gathered you here today to let you know that we will soon release the Galaxy Nexus by Samsung.
    Reporter: Soon? You guys are 2 months late.
    LM: I'm getting to that. Calm down. Now as I said 'soon' because it will finally be available on every other carrier on the planet, outside of the US exclusive we have. See that was the idea all long. We don't really have testers. Sure some people on twitter had the phone a month and a half early, pre-production units but our real testers were our friends in other countries. Doing the hard part of testing it for us. So do not be sad that we are last, just know that you will have, as our Verizon customer, our promise, that this will be the MOST tested phone on the planet. Nothing will ever go wrong with it. It is finally certifiably perfect. We dont care if its a pure Google device. Every device not made from Motorola or HTC, or pantech, or LG requires the utmost testing to ensure it will work reliably on our network, 100% of the time.
    Boos and name calling from the audience.

    I was never actually put on hold, it was all quick - she cut herself off mid sentence to tell me after the first of the year. She seemed like she wanted to help, but just couldn't and was throwing out a date. I only added my experience because all we've seemed to hear today is "My rep said the 15th!" stories. Not all of them are saying the 15th, but let's just bank on that corporate disconnect since Verizon is still being quiet officially.

    OT Dexter talk

    I had the same thoughts about Dexter. The way I look at it, is that Lewis is just like Dexter. He's a "neat, methodical monster" who hides behind his mask. He does it by making games, collecting things, and being a general internet guru. We all know Dexter's mask. Did anyone happen to catch WHAT exactly the signs on the hand meant that he was drawing before shipping it off?

    As for Deb. I think she'll find out about Dexter's...habits. There's a reason that they've been writing in so much about their relationship. I would not be surprised if she does not return next season - given the divorce and story potentially taking that turn.

    Also, I have a theory on how Dexter gets out of the next trap - it was given away (to me, at least) in the previews.

    Stay positive! He will feed off of that. It really helps having a positive outlook for both the patient and those around him.

    He is most certainly wrong about the GAG orders. For one, Verizon DOES display all major phones days/week ahead of time, but typically they don't do that. Usually only for the DROID brand, and the Rezound because it got its own separate unveiling and was hyped way more than the Nexus has been. Look at the phone releases this year; Stratosphere, Bionic, Thunderbolt, Pantech, there's several phones that weren't really displayed or hyped before launch.

    I would've shook on that deal for a free phone.

    More OT Dexter talk

    Has anyone read the books? In the very first one, LaGuerta is killed by Bryan, I think. That's also another potential "fix" for Dexter/Debra.

    We are 2 days out from a supposed release. The fact that stores still claim it's not coming this week is troubling. Unless they are just plain lying why, when we are this close, doesn't EVERY store know 100% that the release is Thursday. Maybe because it isn't. Either that, or Verizon truly is dumb and can't properly communicate with their customers OR their sellers. Either way, I'm staying at a 1% chance the phone comes out this week.

    Oh I couldnt agree more. This season is shaping up to be ok, but the slow, religious like start really disappointed me and a lot of others I know. Season 2 and 4 are definitely the best IMHO

    This is what Gapi will look like if the 15th holds true.

    As do I, from the preview. It involves pointy things and necks. I almost wish the show wasn't renewed until February just so I could go into this episode thinking ZOMG THIS COULD BE IT!

    Just talked to another a** from a different Verizon store.

    "I don't have anything I can tell you at this time"

    So I said "Ok, so you don't know a release date and you have no stock?"

    Caught him off-guard obviously, he stuttered and finally said "We have stock, but that's all I can say"

    I said "So you don't know a release date or just can't say?"

    CSR : "I have no other information I can tell you at this time"

    OT Dexter:

    I think if they got rid of Deb, the show would tank. She's almost as big a part of the show as Dexter is. Also, Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall have both said that they remain great friends and there's no tension. Is that likely? I don't think that there's no tension, but I believe them when they say it's not a big issue. They seem pretty much down-to-earth.

    I think Lewis is going to start killing, but I don't think he's a killer yet. I have no idea what the deal is with sending Dexter the ITK hand, but I'm sure it will be cleared up this week. I don't think they'd consider doing a villain over 2 seasons, though. If anything, they should've done it with Trinity. DDK storyline is pretty much dried up.

    Regardless, I'm stoked for the season finale!
