Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

iPhone 5 announcment today, stay tuned for all nerds posting about it all at once in here

Boom Smartphones

We carry around devices in our pockets that are more powerful than the computers that (allegedly) put us on the moon. It's some weird shit to know that hypothetically instead of texting your friend about the size of the omelette you just made using Omelette Maker Pro on your new Zune Phone, you could be blasting monkeys and shit into fucking space.

This is a thread to talk about your smartphones and tablets and sometimes people talk about computers too 'cause you're all archaic and still use those for things.

Did you just get a nifty old Smartphone? Or maybe a new one because getting an old Smartphone would be weird? You're gonna need some apps. The best way to find apps you want is to browse around the App or Play store, and discover neat things. And then post them here because we all like nice apps (for example if you find an app about blasting monkeys and shit into space please let me know). But if you're lazy or starved for neat things, you can look in these spoilers at some apps we like.

Mouse over the icons for descriptions. Clicking them will take you to their page in whatever store they belong in so you can set them to download to your devices!

iOS
Spoiler:

I am in the middle of making this OP super cool which means there are no android apps here yet because I don't feel like adding the icons and stuff tonight and I won't stand for sub-par appearance. I'll add it in later or something I promise.

    whoa whoa whoa

    if my phone shit on my chest that'd be a feature

    for real though, don't be installing the Jellybean rom that's floating around

    it's a port from the leaked GSM version

    aka guesswork

    just wait till the source code drops legit this month and groups that don't suck farts can work on it

    Nexus 7 looks so good. I'm not sure I can resist buying it for more than like, a month after it comes out. I already have a 7" Android tablet, but in all fairness it's a shitty MIPs based one that a) will only run about 10% of the android software out there without excessive amounts of fuckaboutery and b) runs like ass when it actually does work.

    So yeah, nexus looks like a good step up from that. Especially if you can get a decent keyboard case for it, it'll be like a little laptop I can carry everywhere.

    Should be fine as logn as you dry them out thoroughly before trying to use them. Most electronics are suprisingly resiliant to water if they're unpowered and allowed to thorougly dry out before power is reapplied.

    Ok, what is the difference between the green and blue message colors? Because my phone does both. Some people get blue, others get green, and I have no idea how the phone chooses who gets what.

    are you using an iPhone?

    Blue means the person you're messaging also is using an iPhone, so the message is sent using Apple's iMessage service (using data connection - 3G or wifi) and doesn't count as a text message for either person's plan. Green means the person you're messaging doesn't have an iPhone, so it's sent as a regular text message.

    Does it matter what gen it is? I ask because I have a 3GS and my sister has a 4 and she gets the green. I don't know if she has AT&T though. Does that matter?

    It might mean she hasn't updated her software to iOS 5; if she hasn't updated it since she bought it then it doesn't have iMessage functionality yet.

    So my 3GS is finally carking it, which has also aligned with my current contract expiring, so that works out well and it looks like I'm up for a new phone.

    I'm way out of the loop with the latest stuff.

    iPhones kind of look the same still I guess.

    I keep seeing Samsung Galaxies all over the place or something. What can/can't Android phones do these days that iPhones can/can't?

    hey guys

    what should I do

    drop some bank on a maxxed out RMBP, drop less bank on a lower end RMBP or regular MBP, or drop significantly less bank on a MBA.


    My reasons for wanting one:

    My powerbook G4 (circa 2003) is on its last legs, the screen hasn't worked for a while and it's having problems booting up, and I want to keep something OSX running
    I want the portability
    I want to play WoW and maybe some other games on it, but nothing too intensive
    I also Do Work on my G4 currently
    portability


    I'm slightly leaning towards either RMBP option because of the dual thunderbolt ports. It will allow a bit more expand-ability for future use, and I'm hoping to get a good amount of years out of this thing (shit my G4 has been kicking it for almost a decade). At this point I'm thinking of waiting until the fall to purchase one, since it seems like whenever I spend Big Dollars, something else tends to break and I'm sitting with a nice chunk of credit debt for a while.

    Maybe don't max it out, but definitely spring for a decently powered machine. The more money you spend, the more likely your machine will have a longer lifespan.

    Yeah, I just know there's a definite line in the sand between OK and Uuh, really?

    Like, 2.6 vs 2.7... I know there are a bunch of other differences between the chip architecture or whatever, but is .1ghz worth $300? Probably not.

    My HTC Radar just went bye-bye.

    Or rather, it keeps going bye-bye, turning itself off intermittently. No idea what caused it, I haven't been rough with it, haven't dropped it, no nothing.

    It was immediately noticeable though, because damn if I haven't become completely dependent on this thing. Getting it replaced is going to suck.
