    Well they're close to coming up with a rice-based human blood supply. You can stop your unholy harvest of us mortals ;)

    Ha, I wish, I just got some BS news at work. Been in meetings all morning. Not happy. Need something to cheer me up.

    Well, this makes me a little happy:

    Good morning!

    Sorry you had a bad day.
    No good news - but no bad news either.

    Some balloons to cheer you up?

    Yuck! Synthetics can't replace the real thing as far as taste goes. Besides, we don't really "harvest" humans. Where do you think the Red Cross came from? ;)

    SPF 10,000 is pretty good stuff and winter reduces the UV levels so it is all good. Bright and sunny here today. :D

    Yeah, looking now and it appears to only have wifi. That seems silly to put out such a powerhouse without an LTE option.

    That green hue is a known early production defect - encourage your pal to consider a replacement.

    Just my opinion.

    Could that be why the battery is so awesome?

    That is what tethering is for.

    True. I guess the cost of a tablet data plan would be offset by a tethering plan.

    It wasn't all bad, I just lost money and my hockey team lost.

    On the plus side, I had a great dinner.

    I know these ?'s are off topic, but last one I promise, this is an example of my spray charts...imagine it blank, and needing to write on them what you see written. Were you saying I'd need an htc flyer tablet, or is there an app that I could get for the new asus transformer that could do this??

    I thought the Razr was pentile at qHD resolution.

    Samsung is squeezing out all they can from their shadow mask process, and it was optimization of it that led to RGB stripe at WVGA resolutions. Really, the LITI masking process is totally capable of RGB stripe down to the densities required for 720p at 4.3". Shadow mask will never get there, hence the pentile HD display. I guess they just haven't ramped up the new process to full production, or the line got delayed. I'll see if I can find more info on that.

    Edit: Here ya go...

    Yeah I don't really understand LTE tablets, unless you only use a dumbphone. The cost of a subsidized LTE tab is the same (or more) than a wifi one, and you can tether cheaper than you can get a tab data plan, AND no contract for tethering...

    Rumor is a 100mAh bump in battery, but no confirmation yet I don't think. And 11/21 is still just a rumor, but the latest one we have had. 17th is still a possibility though, for the optimistic among us.

    I'm not positive, but he looked like a Larry. lol

    I actually made a turkey yesterday and we had a "practice" Thanksgiving. Everything turned out excellent and it was a really nice meal. Now we have about 12 lbs of left over turkey to eat this week.
