I note that there doesn't seem to be a way to add gifs to the gif library. As the gif keyboard is my favorite recent feature, is there any way to get more gifs?

Hey Android guys, I'm looking for tablet recommendations for a streaming media center for a family member.  I need an Android tablet that has HDMI out. Is there any reason not to do this (as opposed to using some laptop as a media streaming device)?
Any devices out there that you'd recommend? I'd like the hardware to be pretty rock-solid, with a good bit of storage. I can add an SD card to it.
Budget conscious, Wi-fi only, I don't need a data plan.
Thoughts?

I would strongly recommend a tablet with a USB port to facilitate large external storage.  I would also recommend a processor that supports Neon so that you can use XBMC for android, which is an amazing and highly customizable front-end for Tablet or PC based home theater systems.

Any Galaxy S3 users who can point out how to turn off wireless file sharing (like from the phone to another wireless device) besides a reboot?  It stays in my status bar, and the icon looks like the wireless icon with two horizontal arrows, pointing opposite directions. I've gone through just about every settings menu I can think of. Rebooting fixes it, but I don't want to have to do that.

Application Manager is under Settings, in case you need that.

Samsung Galaxy S3 is fantastic looking. Rooted it just now, and I'm copying all my other stuff to my sdcard. I got the 16 gb version of phone, and I have a 32 Gb card so I should be set...:-)
After this, I'll begin flashing roms.

And I'm not even as bad as I used to be, +David Chandler . I used to flash 6 different roms to try out in the space of two days. :)

Just ordered a Samsung Galaxy S3 from Tmo to replace my dying Samsing Nexus S...
Any thoughts on the best rom for this thing? I want to use JelllyBean as that's what I had on my Nexus...Obviously will be rooting. Any input on Roms or rooting methods would be appreciated!
edit I'm not a complete n00b at rooting, as I've done this to probably 6 or 7 other devices, but would welcome feedback regarding issues people might have had with certain methods...

Anybody out there have a recommendation for a large plasma tv? I'm thinking Panasonic, but I'm open to others.  Mostly used for gaming and movies.  I'm budget conscious, but I am looking to get something good. Probably 60" for dimensions. I'm concerned about input lag.  Any thoughts?

+Christopher Bowley Thanks for that. I'm not sure what difference that would make. I'll keep researching it.

Has anyone heard about an updated Google Nexus 10 with mobile data? I'm really interested in the Nexus 10 but I'm wanting to be able to connect using a mobile network.

I'm in the same boat. Project targeting 10" tabs, but I'd like a mobile account on it.

Okay, here's a question for Linux geeks:
I want to display the last successful login as well as any failed login attempts every time that I successfully authenticate to a server via SSH. I'd like it to be displayed on the screen (obviously all this is via the command line).
Thoughts about how to do this?  Maybe a simple script that runs lastb [username]?
Additional issues: lastb can't be run by a non-privileged account.

Oops.
 
This is so silly from whoever in Marketing at Nokia.

I mean, seriously, in today's tech world when everything is scrutinized to the nth  degree, you didn't think, someone would catch you?
