Decisions, Decisions....
If you're an HTC One owner and are not entirely enthused by the Sense 5.0 experience, especially since it runs atop older Jelly Bean software, you're in

Haha. I already have the One. And I will probably wait to root it and see just how far behind they get with updates. And see how much HTC stuff makes it in.

Does anybody else HATE the new Google Play Music.  They basically removed the main 2 features I use all the time.

1) Shuffle All - it is still there, but a pain in the ass to get to on Android, and the button doesn't exist on the browser version

2) Delete Song on Android - There is absolutely no way to choose to completely remove a song while listening on Android, WTF!

I guess I'm going to have to use the old version on Android, I really don't like the update.  And we still can't actually buy any songs in Canada.

Thoughts? +Ryan Munday +Ben Stolz Anyone else actually using it?

I guess that is what the "Uninstall Update" option is for :(

It takes more config to get it to work the way I want it to, but I'm getting used to it. There are a few things I prefer about it, but using google reader for so long, I have to break some habits.  Even google reader wasn't perfect, so it's a matter of changing my process.

+Jesús David Gulfo Agudelo I'm curious why adding screenshot to the power menu is denied as future feature. I know there is a key-combo that does this, but I know for me, even with that feature I still like to have the power menu option. Will there be a feature added to allow customizing the Power Menu to only have things the user wants on it?

Another update on my positive experiences with Google Play Music.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.music&hl=en

I'm trying to clean up my music library that I've been hording for years, borrowing CD binders from friends, ripping MP3's and even what music I want to keep on account in the Cloud.

So, here is the feature I'm really liking today:

1) Create a Playlist of albums I need to go through and remove unwanted songs from the cloud
2) Choose to keep that playlist "On Device" on my phone

As I add songs in the Google Play Music web interface to my playlist, they automatically get synced to my device, allowing me to cycle through these few albums at a time very quickly, without using any of my network data.  

And then each Song gets one of the following done to them:
1) Remove song from the playlist to stay in the cloud to be heard again on a "Shuffle All"
2) "Thumbs Up" to add it to my overall favorites, and remove from playlist so it stays in the cloud
3) "Thumbs Down" if it needs to be cropped or re-encoded and re-uploaded to the cloud
4) "Delete" song that I never want to hear again with my Google Play account

It works so well, especially since I have a bunch of Android devices, and my desktop that I use to access and play my music.
Shop music on Google Play and listen instantly using the Google Play Music ...

Now using Paranoid Android 2.99.1 on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Surprisingly the upgrade from the CM10 based version (2.54) to the now AOSP based version went very smoothly. Now have MultiUser support on my Phone.

Regardless if they designed it for LTE or not it's guaranteed to work. I was on the fence about buying until I read of everyone being able to run LTE on it in Canada. The amplifier is there, from what I read it uses the same one as the DC-HSPA+ anyway.

Decided to change it up and get the HTC One from my Galaxy Nexus since the Moto X might be a disappointment this year.  I was really hoping for it to be a surprise announcement at Google I/O.  I'm happy with the HTC One, and don't even feel the need yet to Root it. Hopefully 4.2.2 with toggles comes soon though.  And the fact that I got $125 towards the HTC one for trading in a Wildfire with a cracked screen to Telus made the decision a bit easier.

There are rumors I'm supposed to be able to get the option of stock as well.

I came very close to upgrading to an HTC One, until I found out two major problems:

1) No quick toggles, which I use A LOT.

2) The Battery is pretty much impossible to replace without completely ripping apart the phone, it sounds like they put it in an impossible place. Step 11 here: http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/HTC+One+Teardown/13494/1

And my other option was to see if a White LTE Nexus 4 would come out with more internal memory, also disappointment.

But, the Vanilla Galaxy S4 is interesting, I assume you can Root and Unlock the Samsung S4 and install the Stock based ROM. What to do, What to do?

I'm at a pretty hard dillema, Telus is offering me early renewal rates 6 months before I expected it.

1) Nexus 4 for $99 on a 2 year on Telus (always up to date Android, good custom Rom's, and is only a 2 year contract)
2) HTC One for $50 on a 3 year (after HTC's $100 rebate), concerned about battery, and running custom ROM's that I won't be happy with
3) Galaxy S4. $200 on a 3 year. Was pretty much not interested at all until the Google I/O announcement about the Stock version coming out, so I assume by rooting the phone I can basically run Stock android, and any ROM's based off Stock.

And then they also announced the White Nexus 4 which is completely identical internally to the current Nexus 4, but white isn't a big deal with most cases anyway.  I was kind of hoping for it to be LTE and have more internal memory for the same price, but no luck.

The thing I'm really curious to know is how well the magnetics hold the phone in place.  Would it be sufficient to hold the phone on the dash (as long as the base was held down).  And at what level of wreckless driving or bumpy roads would cause it to come loose.

Yeah, I guess I could be considered a ROM Flashing Junkie now that I've found a ROM that is AOSP based, and gives me that added features that I want, I can have bleeding edge, stable, and with the features I want built in.

Best (if not only) place in town to get some Guinness on tap, and at a very reasonable price.

Great pepperoni pizza, perfectly seasoned steak, fast lunch menu. I'll definitely recommend if you want a good sit down meal.
