    RadioShack has a program where if you bring in an old phone, they'll give you $50 off. I'm not sure if they'll be running it for the release of the Nexus, but I know someone who just got it for the Razr. The only condition is that the phone has to turn on. I'd love to save an extra $50, but something tells me this won't be an active promotion for the GN.

    If you really want your mind blown, track down Charlie Neidich's recording and listen to that movement. He actually tongues every single note in those sextuplet runs!

    i still don't understand why people keep making a big deal about this. are you honestly worried that someone is going to steal your phone, find out who it belonged to, find a close up picture of your face, and use it to unlock your device? that seems a little far-fetched to me. :thinking:

    Not that any of us would...but you can have a 30 return policy. And the buyback program is nice at Best Buy

    When I told the csr who gave me the 100 dollar discount, that it was found in the doorways system? He laughed. I asked him if that showed that I knew too much? He said .. Yyyyyup. ;)

    So, you may wanna save the "doorways" modifier if you become desperate because you CSR can't find the 3g to 4g smartphone .. thing. ;)

    Absolutely. But most people do, it's just one of those things. Like how everyone uses the same password for every website, your not SUPPOSED to, but you do, cause its easy. Just like punching in 1016 on every 4-digit PIN required device.

    I would wager money if you took 100 PIN-locked phones and used either MMDD or MMYY you'd unlock well over 50% of them.

    Low brass in the house! I was a tuba player as well, but had to give it up as it wasn't my major.

    No... I mean I even said I'm not worried about anyone stealing my phone. But that'd be like having a lock screen with the "connect the dots" type thing with your pattern highlighted. You know what I mean?

    I personally don't even use a lockscreen on any of my phones, but it's just the fact that a security feature is completely bypassable. But, to be fair, your example is a lot more far-fetched then how it would likely be violated. I'm thinking more along the lines of a girlfriend or wife using a photo of you to read text messages, emails, etc. Sure, if you're worried about that you probably have bigger issues than a faulty FaceLock program... but it's just kinda lame that a program that only exists to lock your device, can be so easily bypassed.
