"My body is ready..."

The Note3 can currently be rooted without tripping the KNOX flag, but custom recovery and non-samsung ROMs will still trip it, voiding the warranty depending your luck. CyanogenMod makes it worth throwing caution to the wind (as long as not too much is broken out of the gate (cough*camera*cough :))

FYI - If you ever find yourself in the annoying situation where the Google+ app will only upload very small resolution images (408x306, 348x348, etc.) for some unknown reason, then the fix appears to be to simply reinstalling the app from the market. This bug only seems to affect those who choose to manually post selected photos every once in a while, and have "Auto Backup" of EVERYTHING disabled.

This off-again-on-again bug has plagued me and many others for months. Clearing the app data/cache doesn't fix it, nor does posting pics via another apps' intent. Not sure why this bug keeps resurfacing, but I should've tried the normal reinstall sooner, it's just that with Titanium Backup I rarely go back to Google Play for re-installs, and instead just clear data/cache and restore from a local backup on the SDcard. #android    #googleplus

So today I saw Gravity, and it was the first movie I've ever seen in IMAX 3D, believe it or not, and the first movie I've seen in an actual theater in years. I expected to be blown away by both the presentation and content, but I instead left the theater in a "meh" mood. Maybe I'm just too hard to please. Maybe I had expectations of full-FOV Oculus rift-style immersion. Not sure.

Presentation:
I had an awesome seat in a mostly-empty matinee showing, and the screen was big enough, but the 3D wasn't that immersive - it was distracting actually. The picture quality was also a bit fuzzy rather than crystal clear HD. Why? And, too loud (get offff my lawwwn...).

Content:
I really tried to not think too much about the factual inaccuracies, but I couldn't. From orbital altitudes, to convenient station proximity, to panic-y astronauts, to easy-access spacesuits, to other errors I'm already forgetting. The most egregious was the tether scene with Sandra and Clooney "hanging" off the ISS "cliff"... in zero G(!). All she had to do was give him the slightest of tugs. I was laughing at that point, as was one other guy, thankfully.

Verdict: 7/10

+Walter Francis That's unfortunate. Maybe one day I'll see what non-blurry 3D is supposed to look like (outside of oculus rift / VRD huds).

Found an escaped parakeet/budgie outside today. It let me approach very closely without backing away but wouldn't hop on my finger, soooo some lucky cat will probably be dining on a fine $10 birdie tonight.

Woot. -18 under par on my first try @ Stickman Golf 2. Played on an old Kindle Fire running CM10.1 (and too lazy to switch to the Expanded Desktop mode sometimes, even with the new pie controls, so the status bar's in the SS)

Another fun game made by the same devs who made Riptide GP, so the quality and controls are thankfully very familiar, though the content is a little more cartoony and "kid friendly".
