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.
Extremely well thanks. You?
Han, why are you so nervous?
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.
It's telling us to get back to work!!! That if we keep refreshing and posting getting the phone will be the least of our worries.
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
What genre do you write? Big historical fiction reader here.
Can we punch your gut if its wrong?
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?
I like your gut! Mine only tells me it's hungry.
It said phones will be in store tomorrow. Don't sell them til Thursday. That simple. It's our own internal email.
Can someone explain 2 forum lingoes to me:
1. What does FAP mean?
2. Where does "arrow to the knee" come from?
I would like to know what you ate that has made your gut so talkative?
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.
I've been saving this one for something special.
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 think you need to up your dose.... of whatever you're on.
FAP, self pleasure.. 2nd Skyrim...
Maybe this is why it was delayed:
Had to put that hideous sticker on 2 million phones?
I can't wait to read the response to this one!
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.
