as for rooting, just download the tool kit, after you install it, its like 6 clicks to root and unlock. I did it just to uninstall some of the unwanted google apps they bloat it with ><


and the next time sigma gives you **** for not having the latest, tell him to **** off and buy a faster computer, cuz his rig is SLOW when W0NG3R is around.

d00d he messages me every now and then saying "my droid razr is teh slow ever since it went to ICS, is your phone crapping out?"

looks at my quad core nexus..."nope oh wait theres a new update JB 4.3"

He then says soooo you don't get LTE (actually N4 can just got to upgrades the radios), my casual reply is "at 30 a month and an average of 12mbps, it totally works fine since I'm not paying 70-90 a month across 2 years."

Ive never had an issue streaming from my phone to smart tv, but it might just be an issue with service right now?

One of my friends said her connection with chromecast was slow and laggy. I'm running fios at home with a 26 connection. I rarely see lag. Her connection was I think TW with a 13.

Now when streaming local, the delay is not bad and not jaggy on my end. You can tell by the delay in the photo I put up of GI Joe, you'll notice face is in different angles. Thats how much the delay is of playing local content. If you have no problem playing content via server, then chromecast quality should be near the same. Try running something that is 720p?

Bump! Ive hated the keyboard layout on my galaxy s blaze since the day i bought it. Yes it's a relatively small screen, but the iPhone 4 has a smaller one and a more spaced keyboard. I'm looking for something with actual spaces between keys like the I phone has.
What kind of "aftermarket" keyboards would you guys recomend?
