Love spending the day playing boardgames. My son and I just got home from a 12 hour binge at +Columbus Area Boardgaming Society where we learned 7 new games along with playing a few favorites.

I don't understand this. How can this be true as the cell companies are today, at least in the US. I get that there are cheap deals out there but it's often not a true comparison. For example, if I buy a Galaxy S4 for $199 on contract and in 2 months find something cheaper I can break the contract and pay the $350 ETF and take my phone to that carrier (if the networks are compatible). $199+$325=$524 which is cheaper than the $639 for the phone outright.

For those who listen to podcasts or just want another reason to hate patent trolls.

+Courtney Hammond I really like Dominion and have already been eyeballing the expansions. :-) Haven't played Agricola. It's on my list of games to play though.
+Jon Hook I'm surprised how easy it was to learn. We're chomping at the bit to play another game. Hoping to get one in today.

Downloading now.  
 
Since all the cool kids are doing it, I'm releasing a preview CM10 build for my device - the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (toro). I'm sure you've seen the other CM10 build disclaimers: this is not a release build, please do not file bugs on this, etc., etc.; all of that applies here as well.

Even so, +CyanogenMod 10 has been the daily driver on my phone for the last couple of weeks now. A lot (but not all) of the CM9 features are in place, and hardware support (camera, data, nfc, etc.) should all be working.

If coming from any other ROM (including CM9), a full wipe/factory reset is highly recommended. From CM9, you can try a non-wipe upgrade, but that has certainly not been tested to any extent.

Enjoy!

I won't link the Google Apps, but I'm sure you can find them floating around in other places if you'd like :-)

I really wish people would stop posting thoughts/statements on Google+ that are controversial or discussion inducing and then never responding to the comments. Google+ is about engagement not amassing public posts.
