Activity Stream

@chris_0 This is exactly my problem as well.  I can only get 2 channels over the air and I really only want to watch things that I can't get by streaming other ways, like sports.  I can either pay huge amounts for HD tv service just for a few channels, or get a service like Aereo.

I also switched from an iPhone 4 to a Nexus 4 a couple weeks ago an my experience parallels yours.  The Android UI looked bad out of the box, but the amazing range of customization possible quickly lets you transform the default interface to something that mirrors how you want to use the phone.

I would still recommend an iPhone to someone that doesn't like messing with a phone and just wants it to look nice and work well out of the box, but would definitely recommend a Nexus 4 to anyone who enjoys technology.

I wonder if there will be much of an outcry when people who think they are getting unlimited data realize Straight Talk says you can't use it to stream video or audio, and throttles you hard after 2GB

Great piece.  The paragraph about political attacks being direct assaults on identity really resonated with me, and explains why some people can't get into a discussion where they even entertain that an opposing opinion might have some merit.

 But as a main, “this is my only device” phone, the Nexus 4 simply isn’t that appealing.

 

I don't quite get that.  The phone is pretty great other than the lack of LTE.  Is LTE really that big of a feature to you that it turns a seemingly very nice phone into an unappealing one?  Even if it was critical that you be on the fastest network possible at all times there are large swaths of the country that aren't in an LTE market - are their phones unappealing also?.

 @rszrama That's something you can enable if you have jailbroken iOS, but I don't know of a way to do it otherwise.

The most disappointing thing to me is that people (myself included) have been complaining about the lack of an Undo Archive feature for over a year.  And now it seems it will never arrive.

Cheating is not paying taxes that you owe.  Finding ways to abuse loopholes is not cheating, just evidence of how broken our tax system is.
