I bought a set of these last year after I saw Will's suggestion and TOTALLY worth it it, especially with headphones like the B & W which just have those useless soft rubber tips.
I was pretty stoked when I saw that Action Launcher had been updated but wow does it ever run like ass on my N4 (with 5.0.0). There's a distinct lag with everything thing that I'm not seeing with the Google Now launcher. Then again my N4 has been pretty much a mess since the OTA of 5.0 so maybe I need to flash a factory image and start fresh.
Seems cool but yeah the size of the tile is almost prohibitively large. It's larger than most of the things I tend to misplace in the house (remotes, phones, etc).
Yay a Joey post! This looks like it would be helpful for just lighting a person in general...
I've been idly waiting for the N6 to come into stock in Canada (HA HA HA) but unfortunately the landscape is pretty barren here. My 2nd choice is the Moto X but it's a carrier exclusive here with no indications if / when it'll come to the other big 2.
I vaguely recall a QL on GiantBomb waaaaay back and it didn't seem terrible but not really interesting.
Hrmm this is sort of tempting as a replacement for the practically ancient Canon EF 50mm 1.4f ...
Will talking about his daughter double fisting suckers sounds like my daughter when she realized that all the boxes in her little pale were full of delicious smarties (Canadian smarties, not 'rockets') and went crazy.
I'm about to break out the black altar and make some blood sacrifices to get an invite.
Even though I'm just a renter some of seems like it could be pretty awesome. Too bad I'm not sure it'll be awesome enough to convince my wife let me place sensors all over the place.
Interesting thoughts about the Sigma... I've always considered them a crappy 2nd tier manufacturer (up their with Tamron) but maybe they've turned it around.
It feels really weird to be listening to this not only in the morning but while I'm still at work. Much joy!
All this LED talk reminded me that I kickstarted http://lightpack.tv/ but haven't gotten around to setting it up, mainly because I don't have any supported devices on my entertainment centre.
@General Desire: Or Google+... Or Orkut...
I don't have one but if I DID I'd share one here because I'm all about the community.
Apparently the Camera is 'pretty good to excellent' but I'm not sure if that's compared to other Nexus phones or all phones. I'm on the fence for this mostly because of the price but I recall spending a lot on getting the original Nexus + Nexus One so I might just buckup and pull the trigger.
Depending on what you're using as an internet router, you might want to consider flashing it with DD-WRT and running the VPN server from there:
Also apparently Windows 7 & 8 has a built in VPN service daemon:
Was Talon grandfathered in to be exempt from the Twitter API key limit? I thought all 3rd party clients nowadays were stuck at 100k keys (or something like that).
