Taking 3D pictures of Buddy Guy at the Hollywood Bowl. Buddy didn't look 3D, but the rows of people in front of me gave this really nice depth to the pictures.

No go on the west coast yet.

Wow, you sure told me. What a sharp wit.

Hmm, Nascar. That explains everything.

I was Christmas shopping this weekend at the local mall (no, not in Oregon) and just for grins I turned on 4G. I was getting 8.28 Down and 1.4 Up, and that is about twice what I normally get in 4G. Not in Oregon mind you, but still, pretty damn fast for Sprint.

Today my son switched from Verizon to Sprint and picked up the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic Touch 4G for $0.01 and lowered his monthly by $15. He started at AT&T with an iPhone but tired quickly of all the dropped calls and moved to Verizon and first a Driod Incredible then an Incredible II. That moves the whole family to Sprint; now Sprint needs to come through and beef up the network.

A co-worker just added a line, an Evo 3D and the price was $0.01. I am going to upgrade my wife from non-smart to Evo Design and the price is $79.99. Better than the $99.99 from Sprint for sure.

Read Richard Stallman if you want to see how silly the patent system in this country really is. IBM holds a patent (never used mind you) for taking the contents of two items and putting them together to form a new item. So everytime you put two pieces of paper into a folder and file it, you owe IBM money. Now Apple thinks it owns anything tablet shaped forgetting that Microsoft and so many others beat them to the tablet in some cases by decades. Now that the delusional lunatic who ran Apple is dead, maybe they will stop the nonsense and get back to trying to win in the marketplace, not the courtroom, though I wouldn't hold my breath waiting if I were you.

Last July, we told you about the latest Apple lawsuit against HTC, who manufactures our beloved line of EVO phones and tablets. And while Apple alleged that HTC Android devices like the EVO 4G, EVO 3D, and EVO View 4G tablet infringed upon its own patents, HTC was quick to... Continue reading

Cool and next to useless at the same time!

Like so many others, I do miss the kickstand.

Got it in California. Downloaded and installing now.

I bought one a few days before my phone arrived (I looked at the others but they were WAY to big for my tastes). It is a lint magnet, but after dropping my 4G and watching the screen shatter, I had to do something. I can live with a little lint and don't really see any problem getting it in and out of my pocket.

In 1983 Steve Jobs had his engineers take apart the Xerox Star computer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xerox_Star). It was loaded with concepts created at Xerox PARC, like a graphic interface and program launcher that started each program in its own resizable window, like pull-down menus and mouse-based navigation. They called their Star clone a Macintosh. At the same time Bill Gates told his engineers to take apart a Xerox Star; they called their result Microsoft Windows. Apple sued Microsoft (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Computer,_Inc._v._Microsoft_Corp.) for "stealing" their ideas, you know, the ones they had just stolen from Xerox. In 1994 the courts ruled in Microsoft's favor, saying that basically, except for the garbage can icon for trash, the Macintosh was a completely unoriginal idea. Apple was a piece of crap then and they proved this week that they have not changed one bit over the last three decades. I hope they get their ass handed to them this time as well.

Well, I think all of the other extended battery packs just caught a break. There can't be any "ugly" left around after this monstrosity hogged it all.

Convert Combo for me. Got the phone yesterday. The thing that pops for me is all the yummy goodness of the Sense 3 interface. The little things now built in seem to make using the phone easier than the 4G. Also, the 3D is pretty awesome!

While waiting for my 3D to arrive (it did so yesterday), I went to Radio Shack and they had the Defender and the Impact. The Defender is outrageously large, so I opted for the Impact. I do need to get something to attach the phone to my belt, but the Defender was just overkill as far as I could see.

Dropped by EVO onto a brick floor two weeks ago on vacation, shattering the screen and been without ever since. My 3D shipped this morning from Amazon and should be here on Monday. I have a replacement screen for my 4G, but can't seem to get the shattered one off. Something to work on in my spare time I guess...

Let me add my congratulations to the many that preceded me. I think I only stumbled on this site a few months ago, but it has become a regular, daily stop since then. You must be doing something right.

•When connected to an MHL-enabled HDTV (the first ones are due for release later this year), the cable will simultaneously charge the device and output media. In other words, the TV will charge the phone while displaying its content. That means it charges as it outputs HDMI. •When connected to an HDTV without MHL, the cable will not charge the connected device unless an MHL-HDMI adapter is used. This seems to indicate that even if you have a standard HDTV, with an adapter it will still charge your phone while outputting HDMI.

I was watching a stream of the roll-out and during the hands-on time they made a video call between the View and the EVO 3D so at least Qik works on the View.

Depending on pricing, I think I am in, particularly with the promise of Honeycomb (running some sort of Sense I would guess). I will have to play with it I think, to determine if I want a 7-inch tablet. As an artist, it will be interesting to see how the paint programs work with Scribe on the larger screen.

I like what Hesse said about the dual cores being independent, meaning each could run separate processes and that when only one core was needed, only one would be running, saving on battery. Also liked that the battery is the "largest battery to date." I assume he meant shipping with a phone. And it's 4G, not "faux-G" like, well, you know who or 3G like the i(wouldnotuseoneifyoupaidme)Phone.
