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

You may want to hold off from buying the thunderbolt, says the panda.

    Panda poem translation

    When Beer flows in the color of envy and the rainbows are all but empty and you bask in the Thunder so bold…
    The Thunderbolt is coming out on St. Patrick’s Day (green beer, pot of gold at end of rainbow), have fun with your new phone if you choose to get it!
    But if it’s another device you seek to reach your Peak, then you may yet have several weeks.
    If you have bee waiting for something else, there will be a new device releasing in “several” weeks (could be about 6-8 weeks, or even more, but maybe people won’t have to wait until June for the Bionic after all?). Not sure what “peak” is referring to, I don’t think it’s the HTC Pyramid though (maybe referring to Bionic’s original code name, Etna?), especially since the Pyramid is rumored to go to T-Mobile (BMX works for VZW) and will not have the Blur UI.
    For in the LiTE a new device shall shine, and perhaps that is fine if dual cores you don’t mind…
    Whatever it is, it will have a dual core processor and LTE.
    For Stevie Austin moves like a blur, Unless it stock style you prefer…
    It will have MotoBlur too. But maybe there will be an option to run stock Android instead if you prefer? That would be huge for this phone since a lot of people don’t like Blur.
    But its calmness we shall seek, And shy away from the Hype-beast.
    Hopefully that same ridiculousness doesn’t surround the release of this phone too. There was clearly too much “hype-beasting” going on with the Thunderbolt.
    So those signing two year choices, don’t blame panda forces, But the unknown sources that raise your hopes so high…
    Don’t blame BMX for the way things went down with the TB, he was right all along! It was all those other self-proclaimed “insiders” on the forums and the blogs reporting every unsubstantiated leak and screen shot that were to blame for the mess.
    Cause at the end of the tweet a Sneaky Panda speaks and he says…
    YOU MAY WANT TO WAIT TO BUY…
    So before signing a 2 year contract on the Thunderbolt, you may want to wait a while if you are interested in the dual core Bionic.

    I will wait until Verizon announces they are switching their plans over to teired, and then I will buy the best phone out at that time. I have an upgrade available but am happy with my DX, but also want to get unlimited 4g grandfathered in for 2 years.

    Maybe if they would actually give release dates of products, people would hold off on buying today's offerings. Expecting people to hold off indefinitely is silly.

    Hm. With the "Stevie Austin" mention, definitely sounds like the Bionic.

    Loved the poem. Don't think that I'll be upgrading soon. I like my DX right now, but I would like to be grandfathered in to 4G. It is a dilemma. Also, there aren't that many 4G spots around me. There is not where I live, but where I work. Also, I stole my sister's upgrade (we're on the same account) and she's looking to upgrade her yucky phone right now.

    I'll probably just wait. See what's coming down the pike.
