It is very easy to get stuck before you realize it. When I was about 10 years old, I was playing in "the mud" not far from my home, where some heavy equipment had been operating. Apparently, it had liquefied the sandy soil. I ended up stuck. I was stuck up to my stomach. Thankfully, there was solid ground nearby (large roots) and my three sisters were able to pull me out - without my shoes, jeans and underwear.. which continue to remain buried somewhere in Southeast Texas.

I would say no.... except that I have a TouchPad with Cm10 on it..... I'm sure an official Android device from HP won't have the same kind of developer community behind it though, and will probably be locked down pretty hard.If they could keep the open nature of the community that's built around the TouchPad somehow, that would make it very attractive however. The TouchPad has more "support" than any other non-android android device I can think of, and a longer update lifespan update-wise than most real Android devices.

No, I would not pay $70 for a screen protector. Nor $20, nor $14.95 (around what the sheets of plastic go for at retail). Back when I still usedscreen protectors I'd order a pack of 3 or 5 from eBay or Amazon that worked just fine for a couple of bucks.Other accessories? I've been burned, so I'm very hesitant. I paid $40 for a car mount at T-Mobile which featured a suction cup. After 6 weeks in the Texas sun, the plastic on the suction cup literally crumbled and there was nothing left to hold the mount to the windshield. Too much? For something that falls apart, yeah.Headphones... My max is $20. I have a very nice pair of JVC sport headphones that don't fall out of my ears like normal earbuds do. Have spent more, and it just ends in tears when the cat chews the cable.Batteries? $100 for a Seido is just too much for a battery that you know doesn't cost $15 to make. Am I a cheapskate? Perhaps. Do I like being gouged on products that are often just a bit of plastic? Not in the least.

Umm.... Google Voice Search has been around for a lot longer than Siri. The only thing "new" is an update! Calling it a Siri Clone is basically an outright lie and shows your obvious bias.

Don't care. LG bent me over and had its way with me on the G2X, I won't touch another LG product again.

This is ridiculous. If we didn't live in such a police state these days, I'd suggest what needs to happen to Apple lawyers and the judges involved. However, I'm a law abiding citizen and would not suggest such things. Especially in a police state like the USA.
