    It's Ari Gold. There are only a couple of words he actually says on the show.

    Just copy/paste this thread and your done. There's enough drama to qualify as a novel and plenty of words.

    My gut tells me that vzw and google came or was coming to some kind of agreement over the weekend. This would explain why the source PM'd me saying it was looking to be Thursday.

    My gut also tells me that an email went out confirming that date, this morning.

    I guess if this doesn't come out Thursday, I might go in like normal and then take Friday off. I can play dumb pretty easily, if needed.

    New Novel idea: "The Forum" inspired by real life events. The story of how one band of downtrodden geeks survived the most horrific geek tragedy of all time: The Verizon Galaxy Nexus Release. The plus side, its 98% complete, and all you have to do to finish is stick around ;)

    Too much joy around here. Verizon and joy don't mix well.

    This right here is why I don't expect to see it this week. If there is a chance the date can be delayed, you can bet Verizon will delay it. Until a date is solid, internally and revealed to the public, I believe Verizon will continue to push it back. They said the end of the year and they've already lost xmas sales, what incentive do they have to release it anytime before the 31st?

    Ok so I don't know what this means (if anything), and I'm not really trying to rain on the parade because I want Thursday too but my acquaintance just got to work (at a VZW call center) and txted me that the Nexus isn't showing up in the equipment guide anymore....

    I've been wondering why it looks like it's going to be a soft launch on the GNEX, and my conclusion is that the initial shipment is going to be for people like us and not the general public. This isn't because Verizon has a soft spot for phone geeks, but because it having a new OS with a learning curve. The people in this type of community are going to have an easier time with the learning curve and if they have any problems they know they have a community to help with the issue. John Q. Public doesn't have these resources in their arsenal, instead they rely on their friend or family member who "knows about these things " to get them up to speed. So by doing a soft launch they get their staff of unpaid tutors trained before the device gets into the hands of to many of the average customers.

    FAP = masterbate

    Arrow to knee = Skyrim. "I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee." Overused by city guards.

    I'm sure this will be ninja'd but I will avoid #1 due to the family nature of the forums. #2 is coming from Skyrim. The guards around repeat non-stop that they were injured by an arrow to the knee.
