    I have 3 small scratches in my Original Droid and that is from 2 years daily usage in my pockets with keys and accidentally dropped it on concrete at least 3 times. This is compared to my old iPod with at least 300 scratches on the screen. Gorilla glass makes a huge difference.

    You really don't need a screen protector unless you are extremely paranoid about scratches. It is a trade off for the potential of a few superficial scratches for less touch feel.


    And NY style pizza all the way. Chicago style shouldn't even be considered real pizza.

    As I recall, Panda also indicated a Halloween announcement. I originally interpreted that to mean the Halloweenish season (i.e., end of October)...but maybe he really did mean an Oct. 31st announcement. That would make sense, still giving VZ time to promote their RAZR. But, gosh, that is not much prep time before the 3rd... IDK. So far the only leaks pointing to Nov. 10th have been Cellebrites. The RAZR was also listed for the 10th until it was officially announced and then that date was changed to the 27th (for preorder). So maybe we're putting too much stock in the leaks suggesting the 10th? I wouldn't be surprised if we at least got to preorder by the 3rd with an official launch on the 10th.

    As much as VZ wants to focus on the RAZR and possibly delay the G-Nex for the RAZR, Sammy and Google are pretty much waiting on VZ because of the rumored "exclusivity" deal between VZ and the G-Nex. They will not be happy if their broader US launch is delayed because VZ wants to give the RAZR a chance to sell. I don't expect too much delay from VZ, maybe they'll wait until after the preorder (i.e., the 27th) to give us the dates, but I think we'll see the G-Nex very quickly after that.

    Are they really that sensitive now?

    That's quite ridiculous. I use my phone to listen to music in the shower all the time -- guess I need to annoy my neighbors now by putting my computer speakers much louder from the living room.

    Ok, I hope this argument can definitively be put to rest now.

    Isn't water damage one that is covered under the replacement warranty?

    That's ridiculous. So if I'm outside and it's raining, and I get a little bit of spotting on my jeans (no innuendos, please), I'm screwed (no innuendos please)?

    That's crazy.

    Ah, Droidette. I'm surprised you made it in today. My wife was depressed over the collapse last night. Oh well.

    c'est la vie

    This would square up with what my sister heard at VZ earlier, before the 3rd came up. 17th is passable. I can't wait much longer than that, though.

    Chicago style isn't bad, but I agree, it's like eating something else, not pizza. When I want a pizza, I get a pizza. If I want a loaf of bread suffed with things, then I'd order Chicago style.

    But just to prove NY doesn't get everything right, why muck up awesome New England Clam soup with that paltry Manhatten version.

    From what I have read about that issue, seems like nexus s and galaxy s 2 fixed that problem. If i were to get that phone that would be the first thing i would look at

    La Russa better stop getting "strategic" with his pitching staff every 8th inning because it's killing us.

    Between the World Series and the GNex anticipation, I CAN'T TAKE THE STRESS!

    What's up all? I figured that since I sold my DX, I'd go ahead and transfer over to the G-nex forums in preparation for the goodness.

    I'm torn on hoping on this one - for you guys that know you can get it right away I hope it drops soon. For me, knowing I'm going to have to wait unless I find an extra $299, I hope it's later.

    Argh. It's crap like this that makes me dislike BGR more and more.

    Motorola to release first Android 4.0 devices six weeks after Google releases final build

    They come out with this as their freshest headline, a day after it's been clarified and updated that all Moto meant was that they would announce when 4.0 would be coming, not actually releasing.

    Yes, I know that BGR seems to have been right on the specs for the SGN, but when they sandwich good info in layers of utter garbage, it's hard to believe anything they say.

    I'm hoping you guys on VZW on 3rd or 10th...GSM version for the rest of us on the 17th...that would be awesome!!!!! Looking doubtful though. I would think that we'll be getting close to finding something out soon though, if Samsung is releasing stuff to UK, you think we'd follow.

    Very fun place if you want to learn to make some exceptional pizza.

    My recipe actually was adapted from an alton brown recipe :eek: Tweaked it to my liking, use home-made sauce seasoned to subjective perfection, and freshest ingredients possible.

    I often order pizza on my phone. Relevant talk.

    I absolutely LOVE the GPS system on my OG, never thought I'd use it much but especially traveling it is the BEST.

    Yep, some are, most definitely. Once word started getting out, people stopped testing the theory on this. So, are they all? I don't know - but forewarned is best.

    It is for the add-on warranty - don't think so if you go without that and rely just on manufacturer's warranty.

    Or if a few days later, you find you have a lemon with a bad GPS or whatever, and try to go for the store trade - at the point the moisture sensor is in the red, you may be looking at an insurance deductible.

    I'm not an expert on warranties or anything - I just see the horror stories across oh, so many brands.

    ~~~~~~~~

    Ditto on screen protector horror stories. I see people whose habits and habitats don't lead to much in the way of scratches advising against screen protectors for others. Why? People are different in their uses and environments. For those of you whose mileage varies, I recommend the Zagg Invisishield (avoid the no-smudge one, go for the plain). Pretty easy to get on, and if you apply no pressure when using, your finger will slip across the surface and the phone will respond. Don't use your phone for the first 12 to 24 hours. When applied, the thing will be gummy with lots of water bubbles underneath. When dry, it hardens and the water bubbles disappear - if you don't mess with it while drying. Keep the applicator stuff out of the rest of the phone - moisture, etc, see above. Keys aren't the big threat - sand is.
