Just got my #nexuscharging   orb today! The device looks great resting on it. Plays a little tone when it gets connected to the charger. The orb's plug and cable appear to be the same as the ones for the +Nexus 4 and are made by +LG Electronics . The only problem, and I don't know if it's the phone on the orb, is Daydream doesn't start unless I change the start setting to "While Charging" or "Either". Tried with and with out the bumper. If I leave it on "While Docked" it just goes to sleep.
I just leave it on "Either' and I have updated to 4.2.2. 

Still cool little charging device, probably not worth the asking price but what the hell. They should change it from "wireless charging device" to "no wire required for phone charging device" since there is a wire connecting it to the wall.

So I've been checking out +BlackBerry 10 and the #blacberryZ10 device and it seems to be a solid device. The features of +BlackBerry 10 seem very intuitive and useful. I like how apps become "active frames", basically widgets, when minimized. I heard they were limited to 8 at a time though. Don't know why they would do that.

Regardless, until someone else makes a top tier unlocked phone for $350 or less you can't beat the #nexus4.

This weekend a friend and I tried to beam pics from a #GalaxyS3 and a #nexus4 and for some reason it wouldn't work. We'd get the "touch to beam" prompt however the other device would never receive the photo. We tried in both directions S3 ->N4 and vice-versa. The only thing that would happen is an animation would play where the beamed object shrinks on the screen.

Has anyone done this successfully on an N4 or S3?

So I've used my #nexus4 for 2 days now without the bumper and I have to say, the bumper is a complete waste of money. You don't realize how much girth it adds to the device until you haven't used it. It also makes it much more uncomfortable in the hand.

That being said it does add minimal protection and a little extra grip.

I still feel like I wasted $20 though.

Is it just me or has each version of Ubuntu using Unity gotten worse. I'm trying to use 12.10 but I can't use the mouse to navigate, activate windows, or anything else. Good thing I kept my 10.04 as my primary. Ubuntu is getting as frustrating as Windows.

My nexus 4 was updated to 4.2.2 tonight around 8:30 (EST) or so. I've noticed some cool minor things.

When I got to bed I thought let me check the play store to see what was new and something was. I just ordered the official +Nexus 4 wireless charger! Get yours while the getting is good!

I tapped my finger against my #nexus4 today and heard this weird rattle. I say weird because I haven't dropped it yet. Anybody else experience this yet?

I'm sick of [mainly Verizon] Verizon/Sprint customers writing reviews on the #nexus4 saying things like the "lack of LTE is a deal breaker" and "no LTE is a fatal flaw". All they're really saying is "Boo-f'in-hoo. I can't have the #nexus4 cause I'm on Verizon/Sprint." They should quit with the jealousy. Or to use a more modern term, STOP HATING! Don't try to convince consumers who can use the #nexus4 that it isn't worth their $300/$350 because you can't use it!

I wouldn't blame +Google if they never produced a CDMA/LTE #nexus4. The way Verizon/Sprint handled the #GalaxyNexus updates is almost as bad as the #nexus4 launch. OK, that may be an over statement. The point is +Nexus devices should get +Android updates when +Google releases them not when a carrier says it's OK.

The move to not include LTE was a good one in my opinion. It keeps manufacturing costs down by being able to produce one device for an innumerable amount of markets and thus GSM subscribers get a top tier phone for mid-range money. In fact the #nexus4 costs less than some mid-range phones off contract.

The #nexus4 is the best Android device [when its available] on the market today. Top-of- the-line specs, wonderfully crafted, works like it should, and it's cheaper [only in price] then the top dog from other manufacturers including LG.

The lack of a feature shouldn't be a knock against a device, especially when it only means you can't use it on your carrier of choice.

Besides if Verizon and Sprint used GSM we as consumers would have even more choices as far as devices and would probably pay better prices. As that would be the more distinguishing factor of which company a person would use.

But that's another rant all together!

Today is the first day I've used my #nexus4 without the bumper since I got it back in November. It feels much better in the hand without it. I am worried about scratches though. None so far but we'll sees by the end of the day

I'm having problems with my #nexus4. Every now and again the media volume gets muted and I can't turn it back up unless I reboot it.

Anybody else experiencing anything like this?

I got tired of giving M$ my money a wanted an alternative so I tried Linux with the first ever Ubuntu LTS release Dapper Drake 6.06. And minus a hiccup here and there I've been on Ubuntu since.

I've survived the switch to Ubuntu. What's next Gentoo... Arch? Who knows?
