    Does any one else on the west coast find it funny/annoying that all the Verizon stores are open at 9am every day except Wednesdays and Thursdays?

    I may be an android user and use PCs but I am seriously thinking about a macbook air. Trying to do "business" on my netbooks is just horrible. Thing is so slow when something pops up and you close it, you need to open task manager to kill the unresponsive program. Annoying :(

    On the off chance I haven't been ninja'd.... If you go through the ordering process on VZW's website, it still comes up, even though there's no ad for it anymore. Or at least it did an hour ago when I last checked...

    Figures. My return window for the Rezound expired yesterday. :( I like the phone, but it would have been nice to have the option.

    Wow. Just Wow.

    What an amazing journey this has been with all of you folks since I first stumbled onto this thread back in early September when the thread only had about 800 posts. I normally don't post on these type of boards, I tend to just peruse them for info on whatever tech item I'm considering buying. But this place was different.. there were characters here. Han with his emotional highs and lows.. CK with his pessimism.. Ry4n with his quest for the ultimate gaming cell phone with an exynos.. GAPI with his private eye stuff.. Steven just being the all-around amazing guy he is.. Early with his knowledge of so many things and his sense of humor.. BabyBlues for her infectious personality, twisting panties and rotating avatars.. OTD with her absolutely great profile photos, poker lessons and views on life as one of the undead.. and so many others for so many reasons. Dawnierae, Antimony, The Chief, NKK, Scott, IndecisiveElle, Stigy, TheRoosevelt etc.. (I debated listing people as I knew I'd miss so many great folks, just know all of you are my Gnex brothers and sisters).

    I went through all of the ups and downs with everyone over speculation of the hardware on the phone.. the amazing high of the Hong Kong press event, the hellish low of every leaked delay for this beautiful device. We watched many folks have to settle for other phones due to the delays or those who were disappointed in the specs/build quality move to other phones.. many of them who are truly happy with their chosen device... but still I resisted joining the conversation here cause I kept thinking to myself why when this thread is just going to get shut down when the phone is released.. but finally I caved after one of Steven's calls for lurkers to come join the fun. I'm glad I did.. this journey would not have been the same if I had walked a parallel path to getting my phone as opposed to hopping aboard and enjoying this ride with all of you.

    Tomorrow when the thread closes will be a bittersweet moment.. because even though we will have other threads to congregate in, it just won't be the same. Much like graduating from high school or college.. some friends just tend to fade away or move on to other things. But we will all have this thread as a reminder of this incredible community and the internet bonds of friendship that have been formed among so many folks.

    This thread has been truly special for so many reasons, from the sheer epic size of it to the friendliness of the folks here to the astounding variety of people from all walks of life and interests drawn to this place for this one item. I know many people here do not care for all things Apple.. but in one respect this thread mirrors one of the thigns I respect about Apple folks. They bond over the one thing that links their lives to each other.. their love of their ipod/iphone/mac/whatever. I think for the first time with any android phone we are seeing that sense of 'community' form. I'm glad I finally decided to jump into the pool and be a part of it, even if only as a minor one.

    In closing I'd like to leave all of you with a quote (apologies for reusing this to the individual who saw this in a PM already):

    "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." ~ Theodore Geisel

    Once again, thank all of you for all of the little things in this thread that will make my Gnex that much more special. See everyone on the other side and enjoy your Galaxy Nexus!
