Congrats ANDY MURRAY on the Wimbledon win, first British person to win in 77 years - However, have you noticed how English people dislike Scots, but now that one wins Wimbledon he's their boy and they are supporting him and loving him? That part of it is a bit of a disgrace. You have to feel like if it was someone from ENGLAND they would have been on board since day 1.

It was an awesome final and who would have thought a clean sweep?

ON MY C drive, is this a problem? I ran the big long one and all that. On my previous install (This is a clean install with not much on it) I got to 4 percent or 2 percent after a defrag usually. What the fetch? is it that I just have windows and a few other things installed or what?

Someone told me defragging is a big lie anyway and that it is for suckers

They have coins for like a 5 spot and a tenner so you don't need to carry around big bills. Imagine how boss it would be to go into a bar and pay for a beer with a single coin.

Why are we so stubborn here that we must use the ridiculous paper money and get too much change for purchases like 11.00 or 61.00?

You could also pay for most fast meals with a single coin and pocket change has a meaning again, unlike here in the US where it is just garbage we throw into a can and save up for months at a time?

Who is with me? And i'd always say 10 pounds STERLING, not just 10 pounds.

I'm so glad the UK isn't on the EURO.. It would pretty much ruin the country

WINNER Help / Holding doors for people
03-07-2013, 09:07:09 AM
How far away does someone have to be from you (total stranger) before you do not hold the door for them?

Last night I was at the gas station and a man was very rude to me for not holding the door open for him. However, I am not gay, and he was like halfway across the road by the pumps. Am I supposed to stand there and wait 5 seconds at a 1 one thousand count with the door held open for this man? As I said I am not gay

So I go in, he grabs the door as its closing and says "THANKS FOR HOLDING THE DOOR" in a sarcastic, out of breath voice like i'd just inconvenienced him. I am a very violent man and it upset me but I decided to just let it go

do you guys hold doors open for MEN who are like 5 seconds behind you in the parking lot? I mean if he is right there its common courtesy but i'm not some non-heterosexual persongot door concierge

Please tell me if im wrong!

Gaming / Question regarding NEW VEGAS
02-07-2013, 16:05:08 PM
Guys I played the game when it came out and its great but im feeling like im going to go again this weekend and go on a binge

Only problem is which expansions are good and which are not good?

They are 4.99 each, or you can get the entire legendary version for 20.00, but I already own the game and I think I heard some expansions blow so it may be better to just buy the 1 or 2 good ones and go 10 dollars in? please advise

STEEV'S KORNER ! / Android Gaming Platform

Google Inc. is developing a videogame console and digital wrist watch powered by its Android operating system, according to people familiar with the matter, as the Internet company seeks to spread the software’s domination beyond smartphones and tablets and cement build the company ‘s reputation as a hardware maker.

With the watch and game console, Google is hoping to combat similar devices that Apple Inc. may release in the future, according to the people familiar with the matter.

Google is also preparing to release a second version of a Web-connected, Android-powered media-playing device, called Nexus Q, that was unveiled last year but not sold to the public, these people said.

The Internet giant hopes to design and market the devices itself and release at least one of them this fall, they added.

A Google spokeswoman declined to comment.

The hardware plans are the latest sign of Google’s determination to build on the success of Android, the software it launched in 2008 that powered 75% of all smartphones and 56.5% of tablets shipped globally in the first quarter, according to the research firm IDC.

Games that run on Android software have proved particularly popular, and they are growing much more quickly than games made for the big-name consoles supplied by Microsoft Corp., Sony Corp. and Nintendo Co. The appeal of such games has prompted the development of new devices aimed specifically for Android by other hardware companies.

The people briefed on the matter said Google is reacting in part to expectations that rival Apple will launch a videogame console as part of its next Apple TV product release.

An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.

Google has also been watching the efforts of Ouya Inc., a startup that this week began selling a $99 Android-based console and game controller, one of these people said.

The company’s hardware efforts come as it wraps up development on the next version of Android, which is expected to be released in the fall. Among other things, the software will be better tailored to the lower-cost smartphones prevalent in developing countries with the aim of firming up Android’s market-share dominance globally, said some of the people familiar with the matter.

Google, through its Android unit and Google X hardware lab, is seeking to build next-generation devices separately from the company’s Motorola hardware division. The hardware maker was acquired last year and is currently focused on launching an Android-based smartphone called the Moto X, these people said.

Meanwhile, Google has been developing low-cost Android smartphones of its own with an eye toward offering them in developing markets, other people familiar with the matter have said, including in markets where Google plans to fund or help create next-generation wireless networks.

With the next release of Android this fall, Google is also moving more aggressively to take the software into additional kinds of devices, including laptops and appliances such as refrigerators.

Personal-computer makers including Hewlett Packard Co. are already working on Android-powered laptops running the next version of the software, an effort that is separate from already launched Android tablets that can physically connect to a keyboard, according to people familiar with the matter. Android laptops would thus compete with those powered by Microsoft’s Windows software. An HP spokesman didn’t immediately provide a comment.

Android is offered free to makers of devices like smartphones and tablets, with Samsung Electronics Co. the biggest of Google’s hardware partners. The hardware helps Google generate revenue from Google Search, YouTube and other Web services.

Last fall Google said it was on track to generate $8 billion annually in gross revenue from mobile devices, though some analysts say the majority of Google’s net mobile revenue comes from Web search and YouTube used on Apple devices.

As part of the release of the next version of Android–known internally as “K release” and referred to by industry observers as “Key Lime Pie”–Google will give manufacturers such as Samsung greater freedom to use Android in devices other than smartphones and tablets,such as appliances and wearable devices, said people familiar with the matter.

Manufacturers that build devices using the official version of Android–which comes with Google’s Web services preinstalled–weren’t previously allowed by Google to use the Android name to promote Android-based devices other than smartphones and tablets. Over time, Google has changed its “compatibility” restrictions to allow for more device types.

Samsung has said it is working on an Android-based watch with smartphone-like capabilities.

Wearable computing is a hot area of development for startups and technology giants. The Wall Street Journal reported in February that Apple, Google’s chief rival in mobile-device software, was developing a watch-like device with smartphone features.

Google’s planned watch is expected to connect to a person’s smartphone via Bluetooth technology, said people familiar with the matter. The Business Insider blog said in January that Google was “actively exploring the idea” of making such a watch.

Some industry observers say Google, Samsung and other technology companies are motivated in part by a desire not to let Apple build a big lead in a newer product category, as it did after launching the iPhone and iPad.

For its part, Google is also trying to popularize an entirely new category of wearable devices. Its most serious effort is Google Glass, a device worn on a person’s face with a computer screen above one eye that delivers information from the person’s smartphone, which is connected to Glass via Bluetooth technology. The device, made by the Google X unit, is expected to go on sale to the public next year.

Google has hit some bumps on the road to becoming a legitimate hardware manufacturer and consumer-electronics brand like Apple.

The first version of its spherically shaped Nexus Q home-entertainment device—the first-ever consumer device designed and marketed by Google—was unveiled last year, but its sale to the public was canceled amid criticism that its $299 price tag was too high. The next version of the Android-based device, which is supposed to help Google sell more music and movies through Google Play, will be much less expensive, said the people familiar with the matter.

According to Google, the majority of Android devices currently being used rely on a version of the software released in 2011 that has fewer capabilities than newer releases. Some industry experts say that the most recent versions of Android are better for higher-end devices than lower-end or older ones that had, for instance, 512 megabytes of memory.

The coming version of Android is supposed to remedy the issue, said people familiar with the matter, and also help mobile app developers focus on optimizing their apps for fewer versions of the software.

Jen-Hsun Huang, the chief executive of Nvidia Corp., which makes microchips for devices powered by Android, said in a recent interview that over time there would be three billion people who use Android devices, and that one million programmers globally are already using the software to build applications or devices. He said Android is poised to disrupt the videogame and consumer-electronics industry; computer systems in cars; as well as personal computing, such as desktop computers. He declined to discuss any unreleased products.

“If you’re a child living outside of California, your first device is likely to be Android,” he said.
