I've never seen one place with NFC posters!!!

in the Article: Foursquare for Android Adds NFC-Based Tap to Check In forum

So let me get this straight. I get a phone with NFC and I go to my local bar/etc. and find a poster with an NFC chip and tap my phone against it? Where are these posters? how far are we really away from this? So in the meantime this is just pointless to me. It has no real value in today's time, yet at least... :?

Who uses google+

I just don't see the want in switching from Fb to g+ when they are the same thing. It's like starting all over, just all in the name of something new? MySpace to Facebook was a little different with it being a wall garden approach the obvious advantages got people to switch. So what would be an advantage of google+?

What? Sprint has one of of not the largest footprint of all the cellphone companies. I travel a lot between Texas and Colorado and very seldom come across a place where I didnt have a signal. Texas has a lot and so does Colorado both have a lot countryside where there is virtually no ppl and yet sprint still gets me a signal not only cell but for data as well

This new way of business will surely stifle innovation and will prevent new entrepreneurs from being prosperous. This may be worse than government regulation's over-head cost and administration fees.

Yeah I'm no fan of Android either. It's too buggy. Everyone around me has one and are always out of battery life and the phone constantly restarts and etc. I know the android fans will rip me a new one for this but lets be honest, its a piece of crap, I don't care what anyone says. it maybe customizable and all that but it's top of the line crap. I will probably try out the Nokia and if I ...

hey, I know you are an iPhone fan and was wondering if you can share some advice on a problem of mines. If you don't mind could you answer my concern of mines, do you think Windows would be worth the investment in the long run or will they give up quickly if the nokia/microsoft deal don't show potential early, which I don't think it will. I've seen in the past where Apple will stick it out with some ...

I really want a windows phone but I've already started to get all my content on iTunes. It kind of sucks that all the software is so fragmented which makes the consumer "commit" to a specific OS. I would feel more comfortable having all my content with iTunes because its dependable. I would love to one day get a Mac book air, and a tablet (iPad perhaps), and an iPhone to keep everything on one OS which the advantages would ...

What? It clearly said that they will collect data such a gender, tennis enthusiast and etc. That sounds real personal to me. So from your theory they can learn "everything" about me other than my name and I am to be consider unidentifiable? Don't get me wrong, I'm not too concerned about this due to the fact that if I were a Verizon customer I would just opt out, but lets not act like they are only collecting a ...

The ending days of the Apple "App Store"? Is this the way around the tight grip that Apple has with its store? but does this compromise convenience? Now how will they supplement the lost conveience of having an app on your homescreen, but wouldn't manufactures just create an web bookmark available to be stored on the homescreen (if this doesn't already exist I would be surprised)? if so one could just simply go to the web version of all the apps ...

Honestly speaking i don't care about LTE/4G it doesn't kill me when I'm watching youtube that I have to pause the video for about 10-20 seconds before i PLAY to allow some time so that I don't start buffering during the video. Plus most of the time I'm on wi-fi in which I never have to pause before play. And you are correct battery life is a way bigger priority over 4G for me as well.

Driving a Honda for $11,000 one would say its a great car and well worth the price and maybe even a steal for that price.

Yeah I was thinking about getting one as well. I just figured what the hell only $100, cant go wrong. I get on the internet and type documents, notes, calendar, and all of the basics. The only thing that it lacked was the apps, and I'm sure I will find some apps I like and I really think that some developers would look at these ppl that are rushing to get the $100 tablet some apps to use and ...

What do you think about Cellstudents proposed solution? CellStudent said: There are two ways to fix this problem. Period. 1) Replace all the cheap, shoddy, accepting-out-of-band-transmissions-as-legiti mate-signals GPS receivers in the world. 2) Increase the guard band size so that cheapskates like Garmin, TomTom and Trimble can keep their lousy second rate radios functioning in the midst of an L-Band LTE rollout. How crazy is this? "We won't let LightSquared use any of their spectrum unless they can use all of it!" Nuts. ...

So from what you are saying still Lightsquared is in a position that is getting hammered by who ever is responsible for setting up the GPS infrastructure. GPS companies need to upgrade their receivers because by them being cheap and cutting cost is now causing another company possible billions of dollars. Now that hold part their we can go on and on about, the part that most intrigues me is that the government knew about this but yet still ...

in the Article: 'Facts and Engineering' to Settle LightSquared's Fate: FCC forum

They need to help with fixing the problem which are the GPS companies and their careless infrastructure. Lightsquared shouldn't have to compromise its business to accommodate an error that it didn't create, but then again lightsquared knew about this problem going in and agreed to fix the problem themselves, so they did ultimately bring this upon themselves. Still to me the FCC should have never let the GPS companies to build so reckless to where their signal is pouring ...

Android has the old windows philosophy, which is to flood the market with your products. So its not that they are that good but its just every where you turn. Now I'm by far not saying that android is a bad OS, but lets not act like people are dying and lining up outside stores to get them either. They have mastered marketing with the flooding of the market with their product, to the point when the average user ...

I've always wanted to know, is that you don't hear anything about San Diego because its really not much to hear, or is that LA and the Bay area cities are that much better? Because when looking at pictures, Sad Diego looks way better than any other place in California IMHO.

But where I was going with the question is, What other spectrum that they own or that is not own by AT&T and Verizon can they use that will penetrate buildings? Now I agree with you that it is a poor signal but its ok/subpar. Now I think they get their advantage from not throttling and offering an unlimited plan against their competitors, oh and no contract perhaps. Those are the things that is keeping me with clear and away ...

RIM had the same approach as apple with the we own our hardware and software and make the same phone with minor changes because why change what's working and what people love.

Well HP has the best product hands down. Better than Android OS and iOS. Now that they will license it, they should have a chance depending on how much it will cost the manufactures. Microsoft has a solid OS as well, I think it has more potential than Android but the name of windows has been so tarnished. Microsoft has something a lot of these other companies don't have, and that is deep pockets. Microsoft now teaming with Nokia, all ...
