    I'm still laughing it was so funny.
    I insinuated it for one, and it was a play on words from the previous post. You know, a joke. Similar to the Rock Cod post that followed mine. Your post is just malicious.

    I know what kind of person you are from you calling someone a retard. You haven't done anything to cause me to question that assumption.

    I considered it, but I just haven't had the need. I use it as a replacement for a laptop for general internet usage around the house. It does everything I need so far.

    For the price I got it, I actually bought 2 with the intention of using one stock and the other rooted. Instead I sold the second one unused to a co-worker for cost.

    You "insinuated" it, I said it. Not really any different other than I don't beat around the bush.

    And you don't know anything about me, so you can just keep your assumptions to yourself.

    Still not helping the image. I know you are the type of person that would call someone a retard, I honestly don't care what else you bring to the table.

    Also, why does C**k God automatically mean the same thing as fag to you?

    I'm sorry, I forgot that you know everything about me and that you weren't "insinuating" anything homosexual.

    I think this is why I hate Android phones so much now. Anyone that is pro Android seems to know everything about anything. Please tell me why the Android is so superior to an iPhone?

    I don't know everything, I just think that it is prudent to thoroughly understand something that you are committing a good amount of time and money to. I like to think that makes me an informed consumer, not a know-it-all. Conversely, the reason why many of the Android power users dislike isheep is the obvious lack of knowledge. They refer to handsets as "the Android", and such, like they are all the same thing, but I digress.

    As far as why I prefer Android phones, I prefer to have some choices in hardware, and software. I do not like a tiny 3.5 inch screen, and I do not support anti-competitive companies. I have modded every smartphone that I have ever had, and even when jailbroken, IOS is lacking in that department. The uninspired app jukebox UI is bothersome, and does not allow the level of customization that I want. IOS is an OS that does relatively little, and relies on app developers to give it value. That is either clever, or lazy, depending on your point of view.

    Edit: This is not the first strawman argument you have made. The statement you quoted had nothing to do with being superior. I simply think that you are not going to do the research to find the appropriate device, you are better off going with the system in which there are relatively few devices with little differences between them. I personally enjoy android, and couldn't care less what phone you use. Idiots talking out the wrong end, regardless of their phone preference, tends to annoy me however.

    Along the lines of my earlier cloud thread, anyone know of a good streaming app. I'd like to be able to stream video, to my RAZR, from the cloud.

    I've been experimenting with a number of services. Dropbox, Amazon, Sugarsync...I side-loaded Air Playit last night and there's some real promise there, but it functions more or less as a remote desktop near as I can tell, and it's still android buggy (intended originally for ios).

    Sugarsync streamed video similarly, as long as I converted it to mp4 (file was originally avi that when selected as an avi, from my RAZR, always tries to sync as opposed to stream).

    Playon has an app.....I haven't tried it on a phone so I don't know how well it works. Looks like it's free to try but then you gotta give up the bucks. I have used it at home before I got the Roku XS.

    If anyone here has an HP Touchpad, it is possible to install Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich", which is much, much better than the native WebOS that comes with it.

    Maybe search to see if it has CM9 support. I know that CM7 had been ported to it.

    Edit: Found this.
    HP Touchpad Android Development - RootzWiki

    There is CM9 support, but even better, there is AOKP support. Both are unofficial, but I think they always have been and always will be.

    That looks like Mobile Sensei's work.

    BTW, iOS is so simple, a monkey can use it. No, really!

    Orangutans at Miami zoo use iPads to communicate - Yahoo! News

    MIAMI (AP) — The 8-year-old twins love their iPad. They draw, play games and expand their vocabulary. Their family's teenagers also like the hand-held computer tablets, too, but the clan's elders show no interest.

    The orangutans at Miami's Jungle Island apparently are just like people when it comes to technology. The park is one of several zoos experimenting with computers and apes, letting its six orangutans use an iPad to communicate and as part of a mental stimulus program. Linda Jacobs, who oversees the program, hopes the devices will eventually help bridge the gap between humans and the endangered apes.

    "Our young ones pick up on it. They understand it. It's like, 'Oh I get this,'" Jacobs said. "Our two older ones, they just are not interested. I think they just figure, 'I've gotten along just fine in this world without this communication-skill here and the iPad, and I don't need a computer.'"

    Have I mentioned that I hate sense?

    Hahaha! Yes re: Gnex. I do not like the bottom of the Sense screen. That will change though....it will look like yours without the three soft buttons on the very bottom.

    I had no choice since Gnex didn't work for me. And the Razr screen is too pixelated. And speaking of resolution....wow! The Rezound has the very highest of all smartphones.

    Sense has some great widgets and the best skin (better than touchwiz IMO) that I've seen. I really have no problems with it other than the bottom menu. I did try the Nemus launcher which made everything vanilla, but I still preferred Sense. Perhaps I need to be checked by a medical professional to see if my gray matter is still sound. :-p

    I am likely biased by past iterations, and hate all skins. Have you tried Nova launcher?

    Edit: Nova is ICS only. Duh.

    IIRC I tried it when I had the Gnex. Either that or Apex. Whatever was first to come out. I liked it a lot. I wanted to get rid of those stupid Google bars on each screen that smushed the phone's real estate.

    I have a kindle fire. Is there any reason to root it or tweak it? I like the functionality of it as it is, aside from the lack of volume buttons.

    If you're happy with it, then don't. I found it kinda worthless though, until I rooted it.

    I'm not sure if I will root my Fire. I only use it for a limited number of things. At some point I will want to back it up, I suppose.

    I wasn't having a problem. Just found it less convenient than iTunes.

    Also, that came off as pretty snarky and was kind of rude.

    Which is why I added the comment at the end, it wasn't intended that way. I usually save that for trolls. :)

    You sounded like you didn't like having to deal with a hassle at all with your EVO. Rooting and using bleeding edge software can be a hassle, to say the least. That is what I was getting at. Is there anything that you specifically want from your fire that you do not have?

    I reread the first couple of pages of this thread this morning, and it was quite entertaining. It is a good reminder of how far things have come.

    Hopefully somebody here can answer this question. I've got a Samsung Vibrant through Cincinnati Bell (a regional carrier in SW Ohio). As far as I can tell it is the exact same phone as the Vibrant through T-Mobile (even the T-mobile logo is still present underneath the Cincinnati Bell logo that has worn down since I bought the phone). I'd like to root the phone but the only information i've found on rooting the Vibrant refers to the T-mobile Vibrant. So is the information regarding the T-mobile Vibrant applicable to the Cincinnati Bell version?

    I have read that the Cinn Bell Vibrants come prerooted, but that may not be the case. Try downloading terminal emulator, and superuser from the market. Once they are installed, open the terminal emulator, and type in: "su" then hit enter, and let me know what it says.
