    Oh, this is the worst-looking hat I ever saw. What, when you buy a hat like this I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh?
  1. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    That's the problem. There are moderators here for a reason. If some "Internet tough guy" comes in here trolling, don't respond. If you report it and continue on with your conversation as if "Internet tough guy" doesn't exist, that person will be dealt with and the thread will continue on without issue. If the moderators have to clean up pages and pages of worthless garbage and pissing matches, everyone is guilty. It's not that much different than if in real life, someone punches you with a cheap shot. Do you call the police and let them do their job? Or do you, and the other people around you retaliate and beat up the person? In example 1, the only person being arrested is the person who threw the punch, in example 2 everyone involved is probably going downtown.
  2. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Wow, Android vs. IOS, never seen that argument before, and I don't see what that garbage has to do with the New York City market discussion. Clean it up.
  3. Ingress Beta

    It is like crack... we are going out bursting tomorrow to take back some sites we lost today
  4. Ingress Beta

    Well, I'm a n00b, but I'm getting the hang of ingress. I found a couple unclaimed portals by my work that I am going to grab tomorrow. Met up with a level 3 guy who heads up a little resistance group in the area. Everything is enlightened here, so once I level up and get some gear... its time to tear some stuff up! LOL
  5. Change 4G symbol on android devices?

    I would elect to go for the YOU'RE_ON_4G, but that's just me... LOL, sorry to go all grammar police on you. Just poking fun...
  6. Network Vision/LTE - Washington DC Market

    They can be. They can also connect to a suitable backhaul where they are positioned, or via microwave to a permanent site with sufficient backhaul.
  7. They only guarantee 6-8 because most people will not understand that they need really good signal to get the max speeds. Also, in an area where the cell sites are loaded up, speeds will start to slow into the 6-8 Mbps range.
  8. Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4.2.1 upgrade

    Screenshot or it didn't happen. Also, watch the rants. Rants of any sort are not allowed here.

  10. Are phones too expensive?

    I saw one person at work with one. Then again I have seen more blackberries at work than iPhone 5s... Sent from my Xoom using Tapatalk HD
  11. I'm closing this thread. Please continue discussion of the St. Louis rollout in the St. Louis market thread.

    I got my invite. Was it someone in here? Viva la Resistance! Sent from my Xoom using Tapatalk HD
  13. Are phones too expensive?

    Now, yes, but for the past few years the iPhone has tromped everyone else. Apple's disruption of supply chains is well documented and their economies of scale push foxconn and other suppliers to razor thin margins on the components. Samsung will be able to command that kind of economy of scale on the GS4 but did not have the ability to place that kind of order previously. The GS3 did outsell the iPhone 5 in Q3 2012 and I will be interested to see the numbers for Q4 as many think the iPhone will reemerge as the top seller. Heck, for the first time I have ever seen, the newest model of the iPhone has been discounted. Apple is watching their market dominance slip through their tightly clenched fingers.

  14. Greetings from the Magic City

    Welcome to S4GRU.
  15. Are phones too expensive?

    They have less of an economy of scale than Apple, but they are gouging the consumer as well.
