    10 miles is around 16km...my school's at least twice that. One hour trip if I go way early, almost two hours if the rush hour catches up. My high school had dormitories though, but I can tolerate the long trips anyway. Then when I was at university it became a daily commute.

    I have a Transformer Tf300 and am bored with it, I don't mind rooting but I don't like custom roms I use it for a kindle reader and a comic viewer mostly and to surf the web. Looking for some new Idea's and hoped you guys had some! Is there anything cool I could do with it besides rooting it?

    Set up some DLNA content, maybe a couple console emulators. Set it up as a PC remote. Install an alternate launcher?

    Well I go to a private school so it's kinda near the city :laugh: It's a 10 minute drive, but with a school bus picking up kids every so often and the traffic in the morning, or retards playing with the stop bell and making the bus driver rage, the time could add up to 40-50 mins at it's worst :eek:

    Heck yes. If I could afford it i'd go with a Lumia 920 the moment it was out. But I can't, so I'll stick to my Galaxy Gio.

    Motorola cancelled updates for some of its mobiles to ICS, I have an Atrix so this was a bummer. I was using Nottachtrix Gingerbread rom (it's based on an official Moto rom), now im on Epinters unnofficial CyanogenMod (JellyBean) CM10 rom. I hope someone leaks something so they can get Hardware Acceleration running on unofficial Jelly Bean roms for Atrix (some of the other phones that they promised updates for too). The Atrix has a Tegra 2 so its a more than capable device. The unnoffical CM10 im on its fully usable bar the lack of H/W acceleration (games and video).

    I bought my mobile second hand but carriers/stores where selling Motorola phones with the selling point of a promised OS upgrade. Twice they said in a year the updates where coming. Least they could do is just give out or unofficially leak whatever they already worked on before google bough them out.

    What is the point of upgrading to ICS from where you are? It seems people get upset for the sake of not being able to upgrade.

    My ICS upgrade was cancelled also (Sony Xperia Play), but I wasnt unhappy because I am not missing out on anything.

    (FYI this isn't mean to berate anyone. Does ICS have features that you really want?)

    The only issue I have with android tablets is they do not have a note taking app that you can use a stylist with to write like notability. They have apps but they just do not match this iPad app, or I would have switch back.

    Absolutely...I think it will be better than Android in some ways but I'm going to wait and see if the market adopts it first. I hate Windows 8 for desktops but for a phone or tablet it fits IMO.

    I should be part of this club forum.

    Have had the GNex since last December. Also talked my missus into getting the One X earlier this year. We swapped earlier this month (her mobile data stopped working - turns out her store-cut micro-sim was shorting), and I have had some fun recently running Cyanogenmod 10 nightlies on the One X. Will be swapping back shortly though - I miss my GNex.
