Meh, small potatoes. That was the impression I got off of Anonymous' facebook page when they posted the image (which is where I found it, not sure which article you are referring to).

In other news, the KKK is also counter-protesting Westboro.

Yes. The KKK.

Nice. I desperately need as new phone. When used for anything heavier than texting, it has a current battery life of about 30 seconds. 3-year old Blackberry about ready to be put out to pasture. Looking at a Galaxy Note or S3 if I can afford it.

I have a ZTE Warp through Boost Mobile, it's pretty kick-ass. I don't know all the spec's on it but it cost me about 200$ and I only pay 60$ service every month (including insurance, truly unlimited data and unlimited voice/text). Not a bad deal considering for an equivalent phone and service plan, I would've paid probably a fair amount less for the phone, but would be paying twice as much per month. Over the length of a contract, it would've cost more than I pay with Boost Mobile, and my payments shrink over time as I pay my bill on time. Yay.

I had an old trooper of a phone. Not a smart phone, but it has been dropped well over 100 times, and it has been through at least two washes.

So my wife got me a new RAZRM for Christmas. (She used our free upgrade for me).

Still getting used to the 'smart' part of it. I'm not much of a smart phone user either way. All smart I'll probably use on it will be the occasional internet reference search and the downloading of th entire Angry Birds collection. I'm hopeful that the bluetooth on this one will actually work with my car as well. Other than that's it's the usual dumb texting, pictures, and calls.

Well I've survived several heart attacks, & slowly trying to get back to normal....which because of an enlarged heart, can never happen ...but I can still improve ( I can also go downhill as well ~:/

On the phone subject
In 2009 I bought a Iphone 3GS, it still works great.
Battery lasts for days when it's on standby & only used for phone calls & i get several hours of game & online time before needing to recharge.
Also I have had it in an Otter case, defender series since i bought it & IMO it is the only reason the phone is still in one piece & working!

you would like a taste of your own medicine doc? I bet he would on occasion.

sometimes it's the simple solution that works best, i reckon. I would have never thought of it myself.

... yuck. Drinking coca cola is just as bad as taking a suppository, but I guess it's better than invasive surgery...

Drinking any cola is bad for you !
I am not even allowed the occassional drink of any cola.
THese soft drinks are a leading cause of osteoporosis & have been shown to cause more incidents of broken bones in children who consume them !
THey effect the PH level of our bodies, the higher the acidic level, the more suseptible we are to illness. Our bodies attempt to return to a higher alkali & to do so will strip calcium directly from our bones to do so !
Our bodies best level is a 7.4 PH so slightly alkali, any introduction that attempts to change our levels to a more acidic level causes immediate reaction in the body !

Do yourself a favor, particularly if its cold/flu season or you are feeling ill stay away from soft drinks ...period !

I had a vacation back home with the family.

I have a galaxy nexus. I bought it off ebay so I could keep my unlimited data. It plays nice with my nexus 7 tablet. Smartphones are pretty awesome.

I believe this above comment should get the recognition it deserves as being a 'huge understatement ' !

Perhaps we should take the time through 2013 to find any other understamtements on here & use them to judge amoungst ourselves ....which is the " biggest understatement of the year "

The apps & texts, email , online searches, camera, music storage & playback capabilities of these phones. They are awesome. I have even done job quotes & then e-mailed it, invoicing etc all from my phone ...no need to get to a computer. Mine wakes me up beeps when its time to take my pills, reminds me of appointments, they are a really useful piece of equipment. Once you get one & start using it ... a simple phone will just not cut it any more !

I just got a app with my razzor MAXX that mirrors what I have on my phone to the TV screen. Netflix for the win!

Things could cause accidents. My husband's new car has Sirius XM, like mine, but his has the screen. If you're listening to a game, it displays periods/quarters and what the score is. I suppose it could also display replays and the X's and O's...but think of how many crashes that would cause.

Yeah, I don't understand some of the displays car companies are putting in them these days - bluetooth for calls and music is great. A full touch screen info center with news and weather and navigation is insane.

I do have to say that a good window mount for a phone and turn-by-turn navigation is so much better than any tom-tom I've ever owned - With Google Maps you know the maps are always updated and with live traffic it's easy to avoid a jam or road block.

What really wows me the most is how well integrated my android phones are with google products (and I imagine it's the same with Apple computers and their ipads and iphones). Chrome is synced between my tablet, phone and computers - it'll tell me my last pages on other devices. I use google talk instead of text messaging and I can reply to messages and send ones from anything and it's all synced up in real time - same with emails. If somebody has to send me a real text message I use google voice - again, available on all of my devices.

Google Now is magic. I can't wait for them to integrate it into Chrome for PCs. It warns me if there's traffic before I leave for work, it gives me a notification on my phone and tablet when it thinks I should leave for any appointments if there's traffic (nice if I set my calendar notification a little too late and there's traffic).

Oh, and can't forget google wallet and NFC - I feel like harry potter waving my phone to pay for food at McDonald's.

I've got a friend who has a new RV. It has multiple popouts, all the bells & whistles, along with exterior camera's & a function where it stop him if he is going to hit an object when reversing.
They probably should hook that up to the front as well ~;)

But what I really liked was the self leveling function, just stop, put it in park & hit the button & if the terrain isn't too bad it levels itself (he also has wooden packing, so he can "pack" under the hydralic legs if the terrain where its parked is too rough or the angle too steep.

I was reading the EVO lineup today, and I noticed they are selecting the 8th game based on donations to a cancer research research foundation...

In addition, an eighth game will be added and will be decided by the community via donation votes. The games on the player's choice voting poll are Capcom vs. SNK 2, Dead or Alive 5, Divekick, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R, Injustice, Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code, MLP: Fighting is Magic, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Skullgirls, Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Most of the other games I've already heard of. so i decided to check out some of the others I never heard of, like
Divekick, which looks... retarded as all hell, and
Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code (WTH is up with that name?!), which looks like a game my girlfriend would go nuts over.
of course, then you got Skullgirls which I would definitely pick up if it was on the PC.

then i saw... MLP: Fighting is Magic. all I gotta say is.. seriously? a fan based game at EVO? and one based on a kids cartoon? given the rabid ferocity of bronies, I wouldn't doubt it if this game beat out all the others just because it has ponies in it. An unlikely show picks up an unlikely fanbase, who makes an even more unlikely fan based fighting game, and it gets in the running to be at a serious fighting game tournament. what the hell are the odds of this happening? I personally find it amusing as hell.

Odd you bring up RVs because yesterday I was channel surfing and found a show about celebrity RVs...They all had more square footage than my last 3 apartments and more marble and hardwood accents than I've ever seen in a real house. I think it was Shaq who had one with 6 bunks because apparently he has 6 kids, and each bunk for the kids had it's own wireless headphones and 30-inch TV. Then they got to one that was Leonardo DiCaprio's trailer for some movie and it was literally an 18-wheeler with the trailer all decked out with 4 slide outs and all kinds of crazy shit inside.

Got a new laptop a while ago and I'm still not used to the keyboard. I keep on hitting the semicolon button when I want to hit apostrophe. Thing is it, looks close enough on quick glance I don;t catch it all the time.
