I think I'll die before Google releases a Verizon capable phone on the Play Store.
It depends heavily on your ties to your carrier. If you're on T-Mobile or AT&T, then go ahead and pick up a Google Play Edition phone from the Play Store or the Nexus 5 when it's available. If you're tied to Verizon, like I am, your options are limited when it comes to stock Android experiences.
@Rallier: Yeah, if I was forced to use my real name, I'd immediately cease posting comments and participating in discussions. I'm not a public figure. I enjoy the anonymity that the internet grants us, but unfortunately too many people abuse it.
I kickstart more projects than I'd admit, but I skipped over this Kickstarter even though I have a 2012 128GB MBA. Thought it was expensive for what it did, and the MBA was gradually becoming a secondary computer. I'd never carry the tool to remove it and I don't always have paperclips around, so I knew it could become a hassle. Save the $40 and cost of the microSD, and buy a 1TB external hard drive for $60-70.
Still using my Zojirushi on colder days. They also have made great Christmas presents.
I only use my Chromecast for YouTube and Netflix, and it's well worth the $35. I honestly could care less for tab casting. AirPlay mirroring barely works for me with my AppleTV, and tab casting has had about the same success rate. I can't pipe video directly over to the AppleTV, which also doesn't change the input on my TV when I want to use it. I could use an ethernet on the next one, but for $35, it's a magical little device for the time being.
I lost all interest once I heard about the AT&T customization exclusivity and the traditional contractual $199 price point.
@SLUSHIE: @afterland: I believe you can add the 3 months onto your current monthly plan, so $35 - 3($8) is $11.
EDIT: Purchase a Google Chromecast and receive a Netflix gift code redeemable towards 3 months of Netflix streaming service on a new or existing account.
I thoroughly enjoyed this interview. All I could ask for would be a short introduction for those unacquainted with David Chang.
@MordeaniisChaos: I'd love to see someone try to shoot a balloon down 20 km up in the sky.
Go with the $100 RAM upgrade and then the SSD if you desperately need it. Honestly it depends on how long you project you're going to use the machine.
Ask yourself if the extra battery life is worth the loss you're taking on selling the Ivy Bridge MBA. I also have the Ivy Bridge one, but I don't see myself ever needing that much battery life. It seems nice to have, but that powerbrick isn't so heavy that I can't bring it around.
My go to site is omgposters.com for updates on prints, as recommended by a fellow Tested reader. Check out Dark Hall Mansion or Dan McCarthy's site for some recommended sites besides Mondo.
Count me in for a Bay Area meet up.
Wow, wow, wow. I'm completely stunned by the work required for this video. You guys weren't kidding that we were in for something great.
My first one landed me in Bowen, Australia, and I saw a sign for Bowen, but had no clue whether that was the town's name or the beach's name. All I could deduce from was: driving on the left side of the road, a tropical location with much flora, and English signs. I put my guess in and I was only 83.5 km away. Should've zoomed in more to pinpoint the location, but it was a good start. Thanks for the rec, Will.
From Adam to Traci, to fucking Dave Chang? And then Space week? Can't wait.
I bought the Guild Wars 2 OST from directsong and the tracks are indeed 320kbps. It appears to be Jeremy Soule's choice for digital distribution. Once you complete the transaction, you'll be sent a link to download the files. I believe they're sent as a rar. I had no problems buying from Directsong.
Tebow went unclaimed over waivers after he was cut. Honestly, the Jets cut him at the worst moment possible because immediately after the draft all the teams that needed backup quarterbacks signed undrafted quarterbacks already. The CFL isn't exactly a good choice for him either since, as @will: pointed out, there are only 3 downs, meaning passing the ball is especially important, and as we know, his problems come from his inability to throw the ball precisely. Teams actually contacted his agents asking if he'd change position, and he said no.
Never thought I'd post about football on Tested, but what do ya know...
I don't believe we'll ever see GG become pervasive throughout modern society. At least not within the next decade. Unless you live in Silicon Valley like I do. People will become aware of their actions in the presence of GG.
