The song Beast Mode by B.O.B. is another cultural reference. I like the song.

@JasonTrout I really don't get how someone could get that so wrong. Athena the goddess of war? Like really? 

It could just be an honest typo (war - wisdom, both start with W) but it looks like the writer meant what she said, as "war" fits within the context she was driving at.

I currently own the Note 2, and while I love the device I'm pretty tired of Touchwiz at this point. 

 

If the Note 3 leaks are true I doubt ill be getting it. I'm probably going to switch over to the HTC One, or the Google X Phone, or Nexus 5 whenever those come out.

I may have to upgrade to this instead of upgrading from my Note 2 to the Note 3. I'm pretty tired of Touchwiz at this point.

Damn. I just bought my 16GB from Google Play a week ago. Love it so far, but I could see myself running out of space eventually. Le sigh.

It's shocked me for about 3 years now that Google hasn't overtaken Apple. Google is a far more wide-reaching company by almost any measure.

 

And then I remember that Apple inflates the prices or everything they sell because people will buy it. Google deflates the prices of everything they sell because they are after information.

I really wish Google Wallet could take off. It's just really frustrating that carriers are just basically able to monopolize this space by blocking access to it in favor of the useless ISIS.

 

Google Wallet isn't enough to entice me to join Sprint, but it really shouldn't even have to come to that. Carriers are so damn greedy. If they can't beat the competition on merits they just block it, despite making profit off of the phones that Google makes.

I'm glad they decided to just call it Hangouts, makes much more sense. Babel would of just confused consumers creating the opposite affect of what the service is meant to do. Now starting a Hangout simply means chatting/messaging/video-chatting altogether. 

 

Plus, I think Babel just sounds kind of corny, like Google Buzz and Wave. Like who would want to say to their friend "lets babel." A lot of people are already used to saying "lets start a Hangout" though.

I wonder if this is replacing the Note line? I own an Note 2, but would definitely consider upgrading to the Note 3. It's the stylus and stylus-friendly programs that make the Note 2 awesome, not just the large screen.

 

I honestly don't see much of a point to a large screened phone unless it has a stylus as I don't watch that much multimedia on the thing.

That's a New Zealand accent right? Kinda sounds like Brett from Flight of the Conchords.

I've been wanting to spice up my Note 2, and Nova Launcher doesn't do it for me. Always been impressed by Chameleon, I'm sold.

I don't like the name, seems to childish. I think they should of just unified everything under "Google Hangouts" because you can hangout with 1 other person, so it applies to direct messages as well as video chats and everything in between.

So basically it's a flagship device for 2011.
