1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I literally counted down the days till I could upgrade- had to wait till Dec. 9th, and have been in Android Heaven ever since. I had a BB Pearl, which was a great phone for me. My phone has to meet some tough requirements:
    -withstand abuse from a toddler who is crazy about both phones and computers, and will not be distracted when she wants to hold it
    -get an excellent signal in a 100 year old school building that is a notorious dead zone
    -serve as a really decent flashlight when the garage light is burned out
    -make shopping online even more convenient (don't know that this is a +!)
    -allow easy access to my docs and have editing capability
    -take really decent photos (of previously mentioned child)
    -store hours of movies (Tinkerbell, especially, for viewing in fancy restaurants)
    -be crazy customizable, as I have WAY more wallpapers than outfits to wear
    -have an excellent maps/GPS feature
    -play YouTube videos at work, where they blocked it :icon_evil:
    -make my programmer husband who owns first gen and latest of everything Mac insanely jealous, and admit maybe Apple is sometimes overrated:icon_ banana:

    I'm both a teacher and a graduate student, and I'm finding this thing to be even more useful than I'd hoped. And I had high hopes! It's making my netbook almost unnecessary, and I thought that was about as portable as my computer was going to get!

    I'm a do-it-yourselfer and a novice geek, I've done a lot by way of google...
    After browsing this forum many times, I'm joining up! Can't wait to learn more!
