Do it Yourself/ Rooting & Roms  - 
 
Since viewing numerous reviews and videos on the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 there was something that stood out and peaked my curiousity above all else, and that was the Hancom Office suite. I know I know, this is the Mega community, but bear with me for a moment.
The suite looks really good in those reviews and was supposably to be in the Samsung App store by mid February but it doesn't show up when I went to it. Supposably, the suite requires Android API level 19 which is Android 4.4 and my wifi Mega is basically 4.2.2.). Yet the properties state that Android 4.0 + is needed for it to work. According to Hancom, they state that Samsung has no plans to release the Suite for any other Android device other than on the Pro series. Bummer.
Regardless, like a cat determined to get into a newly fresh delivered box, I was determined to see if somehow it can be sideloaded. I'm sure someone extracted the apks. As usual, my search takes me over to xda-devleopers and there was a thread about it. (Although the thread was in the Note 10.1 section). 
So, last night I felt adventurous and decided to side load the Hancom Office suit that is on the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 onto my Mega. 
After the install, I ran the apps and I have to say that I'm impressed. It is the best office suite I have yet to encounter on Android. I've tried QuickOffice, Kingsoft Office, OfficeSuite7, Polaris and this one is way better. 
I can't compare it to AndrOffice though, since I never used that particular app.  
Its a shame that Samsung is limiting this to the Pro series only, but at least there is a way to get it on the Note 8.0

I'm loving my Note 8 now more than ever.

I like things organized so I put the icons in their own folders.
Using Nova Launcher and icons I created with SimpleText.

Although I love my Mega, one thing is disappointing . With it being not so popular (in the development community) compared to other high end smartphones, there isn't that many options for ROMS, root processes, etc. Especially if one has the Sprint version. Granted, those that root their smartphones are in the minority when most just buy their device and be done with it. Recently I did root my device, but somehow lost it after an update was pushed to the device. With the new update, no matter what method I try over at xda-developers, I can't get it to root. Other than that, I really love this phone.

There is something for everyone (as they say). I love my phone, I am an Android developer with apps on the Google Play Store; I don't plan on doing too much with my phone so it is good as it is for me. Frankly all phones die away rather quickly to be honest.

Considering that today is the 1 year anniversary of the Note 8.0, I wonder if Samsung will unveil a updated version at todays MWC Unpack event. Either way, I'm really loving my Note 8.0 WiFi model.

I just hope the development community keeps interested in this tablet and keeps coming up with new roms based on any and all upgrades that Samsung puts out. I just added this to my extensive line up of tablets and this one is my favorite by far.

I originally place this review under Olympic by mistake. The Olympic diner is no more. It is now called The Classic Diner and everything from the decor, food and service has been awesome. Due to its unique location at the intersection of Lefferts Blvd, Myrtle and Jamaica Avenues, they have two 8 car parking lots on each side of the building. The decor inside and out does remind me of a classic contemporary diner. The building has a big clock that can be seen a block away. The food are big portions for the price which is not expensive. Kudos to the chef which offers classic dishes as well as unique tasty ones. Each day has specials and on Friday they offer the best Greek Lemon Chicken soup. Been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sundays mornings are busy so go early. Highly recommended.
