So just a battery update.

My GNex would make it a maybe to 3 before being dead.

The Note 3 has been off the charger for 14 hours and I am at 48% battery remaining.

I honestly think I'm a battery killer. I can never get my S4's battery to last that long. But I do use like 4 apps at time. Music, texting, web, tapatalk, youtube.

So I finally got the Note 3, been a long wait upgrading from the Galaxy S2. I ordered it though so it should be here Friday but really pumped! From what I've read, big selling points are battery life(over 15 hours of HD movie play-back), the RAM that has 3GB and 32GB internal, and the screen display is supposed to be a huge upgrade over what's available now. Processor tested out really fast with download and upload speeds, so it'll be a nice change of pace.


I bought a pair of the beats by dre earbuds that you can talk with so I'll use that instead of a bluetooth, and don't know that I'll use the S-Pen, but everything else has me really excited. Seems like legit upgrades from the S4 and Note 2.

Action Notes and the App in a window feature with it are probably what I would say are the most useful.

In actual Android news Sony's SmartWatch 2 is fully released. Expect the above hiring to signal Apple pushing forward quickly to market and sell an "iWatch" with inferior hardware tagging along with the slick design and marketing.

My sister (bless her heart) and family are more devout to Apple than the Pope is to Catholicism yet she is always bitching. I will never understand how Droid can produce a much better product that more people use, yet almost everything is developed for IPhone first despite being the inferior technology in just about every way.

Honestly, it's because Apple is AMAZING at marketing their products. That one of their key principles is making it look "cool" and flashy. People love that. I take no qualms with Apple because they do what they do well: cater to looks and market their products damn well. They have arguably one of the best marketing teams in business. Up there with Nike.

It's how you get people SO entrenched in Apple products and will defend it to the death (BBD) for no other reason than it being Apple.

A few of my co-workers are like this. They ***** and moan about all the issues they have with their iPads/iBooks/iPhones and then when I say why not switch they get all self-righteous and defensive. "APPLE IS ******' GREAT MAN! IT'S SO SIMPLE AND JUST WORKS!!!" Despite them moments before complaining it wasn't working.

Apple has almost created this devout mindset. It's pretty amazing. If my laptop doesn't work an one of my co-worker sees it, "LOL, OMG BRO, SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN AN IBOOK."

If their stuff doesn't work, "JUST ****** LUCK, BRO. NOT APPLES FAULT!"

It is a very interesting study in corporate brainwashing. I'd love to know what sort of subliminal messages they hide in their advertising to get that sort of blind loyalty to bad products.

The only Apple product in my house is my wife's IPod Nano and it beyond frustrating to work and load music on to.

I love how you keep trashing your iPhone for not working but make every excuse in the book for your nexus being a piece of ****.

It is easier to develop for iOS because it is a closed system. If it works on one iPhone/iPad it works on them all. Android's problem is fragmentation. It takes a lot more owrk to develop apps that will work on all the different variations of Android OS and then you throw in the multitude of screen sizes and resolutions. The latter was I believe addressed by Honeycomb (maybe ICS?) which was supposed to allow developers to create apps that would dynamically adjust to screen size and resolution.

I own a GS4 so I'm an Android guy, but that is the trade off.

And I never had any of the problems Forenci talks about.

I text faster on my iPhone than I did with the swype keyboard on my Droid. The autocorrect is great. The swype would F up on the regluar. To be fair, I would swipe fast and the key with swyping is the slower you do it, the faster you text, so take it for what it's worth.

But I definitely text faster on my iPhone.

When are they revealing the Nexus 5 again?

That's probably my next phone, unless I suck it up and pay the 650 for an iPhone when I switch to TMobile. But if the Nexus 5 can match the iPhone I'm probably going Nexus.

It's how you get people SO entrenched in Apple products and will defend it to the death (BBD) for no other reason than it being Apple.

A few of my co-workers are like this. They ***** and moan about all the issues they have with their iPads/iBooks/iPhones and then when I say why not switch they get all self-righteous and defensive. "APPLE IS ******' GREAT MAN! IT'S SO SIMPLE AND JUST WORKS!!!" Despite them moments before complaining it wasn't working.

Apple has almost created this devout mindset. It's pretty amazing. If my laptop doesn't work an one of my co-worker sees it, "LOL, OMG BRO, SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN AN IBOOK."

If their stuff doesn't work, "JUST ****** LUCK, BRO. NOT APPLES FAULT!"

I honestly think Android fanboys have become worse than Apple fanboys. Because Android fanboys don't realize they're fanboys.

I think if you ask a legit Apple fanboy, I think he realizes he's a fanboy. But Android fanboys will hate Apple fanboys for being a certain way, then turn around and do the same exact **** with Android and act like they're somehow different.

Just do this, and see if I'm lying. Go to youtube, and look up any Apple product review. Then read the comments section. You'll see it littered with Android fanboys complaining about how it sucks and how Android is so great.

Now go to an Android product review. And read the comments. You won't even see half of the hatred. Bc Apple fanboys really don't give a ****.

It's almost like Android fanboys have such a deep inferiority complex that they feel the need to lash out whenever they can. It's kinda sad actually. Apple fanboys don't really give a **** what Android is doing. But it's the opposite for Android fanboys.

You're clearly late to the game with this Apple stuff. Apple cultist had a reputation as being among the worst consumer groups in all of tech before smartphones were even a thing.

Personally, I try not to pay attention to bored 13 year old's making Youtube and blog comments about anything, let alone tech. You'll find plenty of inane bile on both sides. Buy what suites your needs and don't obsess over other people's opinions. Most of them aren't thought out whatsoever.
