Can't function without mine in the business world. The main thing is emails. If i didn't have 24/7 access to my emails i'd be royally screwed

i always said that

then got a droid and realized how much i needed it

like just the other day, my finace and I were driving, we saw a dead animal on the road she was like, "was that a muskrat?" and i said "what the hell does a muskrat even look like?" and then boom, 20 seconds later we confirmed via wikipedia that it was infact a muskrat on the side of rt 46

$30 a month well spent my friend

I'm with you. I mean I'm sure when I get a job they'll make me get something that will allow me access to my e-mails and stuff, but for now I'm just enjoying the simplicity of calls/text.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend some good bars that I could watch game 2 at tomorrow.

Anything with a Rangers atmosphere is basically where i want to be.

Google has acknowledged that fragmentation is an issue, and has communicated to carriers that things will be changing. There was an article in business week about it recently.

It's certainly an issue, but I trust that Google will handle it reasonably well. They've been nothing but successful with their Android venture thus far. They didn't achieve the highest worldwide market share by accident.

As far as Angry Birds, I have 3 stars on all levels and all golden eggs/fruits for the original, Seasons and Rio.

Also, as someone who has had an iPhone, multiple BBs and now an Android, I can say that I've never been happier with my device. My DX is fantastic. "Advanced" users can turn the device into pretty much whatever they want, which is why I love it so much. Custom ROM sets, custom themes that I tweak myself, it's all terrific.

I really couldn't imagine owning any other device. Android phones are exactly what you want them to be.

I don't like touch phones and all my booty calls have BB's, so I have the second to newest version of the Curve, I believe. I actually like it, since I just use it for texting, BBM and listening to Rangers games when I have to.

Pretty much the reason for me too. Most of the people I know have BB's so BBM comes in handy, I like how simplified the layout is, and the keyboard is pretty solid too. Granted I use the web a lot and the browser isn't the best but it gets the job done. No complaints from me for my Tour.

The browser was one of the biggest reasons I moved away from BB. I always loved the iOS browser, and the Android browser with built-in flash is amazing. So fast, and everything renders perfectly. It's like a freakin' laptop. On my BB, it was impossible to mod here from my phone. Now I can use the "full view" here, and it loads faster on my DX than the mobile view did on my BBs.

I'm also a big app guy, which is why I had to switch to something other than BB. The BB was and is always fine for work, but I'm a bit of a techie, so it wasn't cutting it for personal use. Nothing against the BB OS--it's great at what it does--I just craved more.

Wow. I'm an idiot. I posted this in the thread that said "OT- Why OT?" ****ing facepalm.

About to enroll at Holy Cross. I absolutely loved the campus. The surrounding town is sketchy, but the campus is somewhere I see myself thriving for the next four years.

Woo-town is... interesting. You'll meet the Woo-rats in due time, also.

But congrats, dude. I've absolutely loved my 4 years here. It sucks to graduate, so enjoy it while it lasts.

Haha my friend and I took a quick walk around town. It does seem interesting. Woo-rats? Hmmm.

Thanks man. I really hope all goes well there. It feels great wearing a HC hoodie.
