    So far in really digging the upgrades I made - very pleased with the 920/8X/T100 combo. I was really tempered to look into getting an Xperia Z Ultra too as a replacement for my Touchpad from an Android point of view. I realize why people like the 7" form factor having spent some time with a Nexus 7 (2012) I bought to ship to a friend overseas - the Z Ultra would do nicely in that role for me. It is just too expensive. Perhaps if I had only one WP8, I'd do it, but at this point, I just cannot afford to spend the cash like that right now...
    that is why we wait till next season ! :D

    I still have some upgrades to make in the tech department - I ordered a replacement monitor for my aging Dell HD unit. I got an small 16" screen off Tigerdirect.com for $70. I think asnt planning to spend on something crazy because I'm not home as much and am more likely to use the T100 first. I save my desktop for Android and other content management, so I don't need the latest and great screen.

    If it were up to me, I would do a set up that's I've always wanted. I'd get a 40" Touchscreen TV and run my PC, console (probably some kind of Xbox) and Cable through the same screen with some good speakers (possibly Bluetooth). I'd also go wireless with my printer, keyboard and mouse too. Simple, expensive but effective...
    whoa i never thought of that only having a touchscreen tv with an xbox and a pc ...dang i really hope that happens in our life time to the point where 40in tv are cheap enough to buy!

    I'm still getting the hang of the 920's camera. The GF actually likes my 920 - when she first held it she goes "OMG! It's HEAVY!" (she owns a S4). Then when she sees a few shots I took at night, she goes "Can I have the camera"?

    I really want to see Lumia Black and what the new Nokia Cam update brings. While I like the overall colors from the 920 so far, it just feels a step being the 925. Maybe my eyes are bad, but the additional lens and software adjustments make the 925's pictures seem a bit better. Not complaining about what I have at all, but you can tell that the 920 is the older handset.
    heheheh well nokia was spot on about the low light capabilities on the 920 and yet it still cant be beat knowing its a year old now..... but i wonder ..... what will be the successor to the 920 o.o ?

    So the Giants and Cowboys are tied going into the last few minutes of the game. My neighbor is a HUGE Giants fan so he is hopping up and down & yelling in his apartment across the hall. It doesn't bother me at all - he's a cool middle aged guy - but i don't think I would be able to watch a game with him because he is too noisy for my tastes. The GF isn't really a sports person - but since her favorite color is blue I'm almost tempted to get her NFL female apparel in NY Giants colors to wear to her kickboxing classes as her Xmas gift...
    DUMP HER !!!!!!!JKJKJKJK but i also i had a neighbor how did the same thing during football season who would yell at the tv and i would think this guy is too lonely where he would yell at the tv :P

    Speaking of Xmas gifts, anyone has any good suggestions? I've gave the GF a Bluetooth speaker dock last year that she uses alot - she pairs it to her Nexus 7 & S4 and plays Pandora alot through it. I'm trying not to do too much tech as fits for her because I did that already for her birthday recently. I'm gonna look into that NFL apparel (jersey or hoodie) but I want another option...
    hmm that's a hard one i think i will leave it to the married peeps because i don't know XD

    Ugh, it looks like the Giants are about to lose this game. It was a good game but I think the Cowboys did JUST enough to win. Now, if we can get a block on the last play of the game here would be miraculous...

    Nope. Giants lost. Ah well. We looked to be a 8-8 team this year anyways. Both NY teams lost so it is a matter of moving on to next week.
    ehhhh this one i have nothing to say because i don't watch football but i do watch soccer

    I'm curious how I did in the office pool this week. I've been having decent weeks but have been not in the mix on Mondays to seal the win. Hey, I've won twice so far, but any time you can get an extra $100 in your pocket each winner (that's the pot for the winner), that's a great feeling...
    dang 100$ i would be able to buy lots of tri-tips

    Long hair is still popular with a lot of guys in rock bands today.

    Even in the 70s, if those guys were office workers instead of musicians, they would've needed to get haircuts. Although men in the 70s who worked in offices didn't need to cut their hair quite as short as they do today.
    while i don't deny the fact the guys have long hair, its just i don't see them a lot and when i do i relate to the times that you mentioned :P

    i do the same but sometimes i do it on the internet because i hate the hassle of getting out of peoples way and driving in the busy streets during black Friday ... i feel that people forget how to be a person during that time
    That is why I'm going shopping on Saturday, not the actual Black Friday...if I did, I would have to elbow some folks...

    you do not have to be married to suggest a good gift idea. I've found a nice NYG hoodie she can wear for her workouts, but I'm open to other options...

    well if i had to give something i would do the same thing i always do when im with any girl i usually talk to her to the point when she tells me about something that she likes and then i ask her about it and then i do some research about it and try to find something better ( if my wallet allows me) and get it for her :) but i like the working out i always see any girl talking about work out cloths :)

    Or, you can give her something she doesn't normally get for herself. Case in point - I sent the GF to a spa for her birthday and she loved it. It was a 2 hour package - she loved it because she hadn't gone to one for herself in YEARS. I loved it because I wanted her to pamper herself and I got the package on a crazy good discount...

    I just did it and gave it to her as a surprise. If I had told her beforehand, she would have said no and not gone. Sometimes you've just have to trust your gut and what you know of the person you're seeing and act on that knowledge...
