Glad you're back to doing podcasts. I hope they are more frequent. (My wife and my wallet don't, but I do).

Is this for real?  Almost 1 gun per person in the US?

The big problem in the USA is suicide - NOT guns.

Thanks for posting this, Amin.  I have trouble keeping track of all your photography websites and did not even know about this one.  I just got a X30 and have to say that so far it's my most fun digital camera ever, mostly because of the EVF and the manual zoom.

I woke up this morning to find new Liquid Smooth, AOKP, and Paranoid Android ROMs available for my Verizon Note II.  Goodbye TouchWiz, it's been nice knowing you!

Sounds good :).  I keep meaning to get on, but time is so short these days.  I'll keep an eye out for you though!

I was using Swiftkey 3 but had to stop because of annoying, intermittent lag.  Moved it to /system/app and odexed - lag seems to be completely gone.  Nice to be a Swiftkey user again.  The tablet version has been great on the Nexus 7 as well.

I used an app called "Odex Me" which odexes everything in /system/app and is available here: http://www.modaco.com/topic/345141-odex-me-application/

You have to start out with a fully deodexed ROM that has init.d support and busybox in /system/xbin.  Most of them do, excluding the ones which are deodexed and otherwise stock.  I use Liquid and highly recommend it if available for your phone.  You get the phone setup the way you like it with any theming and interface mods setup, move anything you want to /system/app (I used Titanium backup to move Swiftkey 3, Nova, and Lux), and then run 'Odex Me'.  The screen will be dark for about a minute between reboots while it does its thing.  

One other thing: I had to manually move /data/data/com.touchtype.swiftkey/lib/* to /system/lib/* before using Titanium to move Swiftkey.

Recently my Galaxy Nexus started draining batteries rapidly to the point where they could not accept a charge.  I would go to sleep at 50% and wake up with a permanently dead battery.  Even after a factory reset with no apps installed, it happened again.  Tried a different battery, different charger - same result.

I called Samsung and explained how I bought the phone used and didn't have the purchase receipt or any warranty paperwork.  They looked up my phone's IMEI #, saw that it was less than a year old, and said they would cover it under warranty, pay shipping both ways, and that it should take less than a week turnaround.  That's way beyond my expectations - I didn't think they would offer anything other than fixing it for a high cost.

Meanwhile, I've gone back to my HTC Thunderbolt for a while, and I may just stick with this even after the Samsung is fixed.  The reason is that I'm carrying my Nexus 7 everywhere now, and my phone has basically been relegated to two purposes in life: 1) Making phone calls; 2) Providing Wifi data.  As such, the only qualitities which matter to me are reliability of signal and battery life.  I use the 2750mAh battery for the Thunderbolt, and it seems to last longer than a 3800mAh Seidio on the G-Nex.  My data connectivity also seems more reliable with the Thunderbolt.

I'm sure I'll go back to the Galaxy Nexus in a few weeks, but in the meanwhile I'm enjoying the old Thunderbolt.  Hats off to Samsung for superior customer service!
