    awesome. And anything to help reduce the mess of cords I have next to my LC3. At this day in technology, leave it to the retards at the cable company to fuck up the ambiance next to my chair with a snake pit of cords.

    You will have to call the cable company to activate your new modem, so good luck with that.

    Well, I got off the phone with them just now and they told me I would have to call them to activate. We will see. They told me to buy this one.

    Searched launcher on apple app store and a ton of them showed up. Don't have any idea how to choose one or know if it works like the one you used on Android.

    Interested to know what you pick, looks useful

    I use garage door, it's already on the phone, but that is more about notifications than about launching apps and files.

    Been holding out for an iPad Mini under the fatuous assumption it would be priced ~250 starting. $329 for a non "retina" display? Feh. Looks like now's a good time to break from the Apple Store and seriously consider a Nexus 7.

    Hands on reports indicated the display's nicer then Nexus 7's in most ways, just not as high of a PPI. The mini appeared to have better black levels, color reproduction and viewing angles. The lower PPI is certainly a problem for Apple here, but its important to keep in mind the areas that the mini may have an advantage. We won't know for sure till the formal reviews hit.

    Now, I would have a hard time using he mini because I'm used to my Retina iPad, but for someone coming in having not owned the iPad 3 it may not propose a problem.

    I've had a Blackberry Bold 9700 for the last 3 years and it can barely open ESPN. Very excited to be getting a capable phone with LTE!

    I was also a Berry user(work) until I picked up the 5 about 3 weeks ago. Love it. MUCH faster than Berry will ever be. You will enjoy.

    Phone gets here Thursday from Zhengshou, China. It seems like there are no good cases for this phone. Damn you internet reviews!!
