First of all Drinking Jack Daniels does not make you a real man... it makes you a conservative consumer. Johnny Walker Black is where the real men start drinking.

That said... I saw someone say that Android users are jumping ship to Iphone "Everyday"... where are some metrics on that? A pretty graph or something. Because everything I read still touts the fact that android has like 35% of the phone market still with iOS sitting cleanly at 18'ish percent.

Here is a recent Forbes.com article on the subject with a quote.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/timothyl...artphone-wars/

Quote:
This explains why iOS has been losing ground to Android even though most people agree that the iPhone is the best single smartphone on the market. There are tens of millions of people who care most about the narrow end of the funnel. They want the best user interface, and are willing to make compromises on other fronts to get it. Most of these customers will opt for an iPhone. But there are hundreds of millions of customers who care more about some other factor.
Now with the advent of ICS Stock 4.0 and the GNex and RazR I don't agree that Ios is better anymore, but that article was written before it.

I drink Jim Beam. What does that make me? A cheap consumer? Oh wait, I am cheap.

If anyone lives near a Nebraska Furniture Mart (I do) they are giving a $50 NFM gift card with the purchase of the Wifi version. They're making it hard for me to stay on the fence.

Nobody lives in Nebraska, and the ones who do probably don't have internet or even computers

Actually it was Jameson, though I typically do drink JD.

And I think polishing off a 750ml bottle of whiskey in straight triple shots by myself in less than 3 hours leaves no doubt to my manhood.

JD is a solid whiskey, if not too exceptional in any way. That said the Jameson was pretty tasty.

I personally don't drink Jim Beam but everyone's got their own taste. Jack is my default "brown liquor", as kamspy would say...

Congrats on the new Vita, Pinoy. Enjoy!

There are 3 locations. Kansas City, KS, Omaha Nebraska & Des Moines. That would be Iowa.

Yup.

To be fair, although Cyg is decidedly pro X-box he has maintained an overall disdain for handheld systems . At least as far as I can tell.

Alright Nexgen...you win. I paid up a bit and went to the 3g model. Reasoning being that I really don't need it but if they do come out with something for the 3g I'd rather have it than not. The 8gb stick is a nicety, but I already got my Sony friend bringing me a 32gb stick as a present

Anyways, been playing with this thing for the last hour and a half. It's fast, touch works perfectly. Switching from application to application is quick and easy (wish the full size consoles could do it this well and easy)

The screen: It's gorgeous, really really impressed with it. Colors are vivid, images are sharp. No ghosting or blurring at all! It's bigger than the PSP's screen as well.

Analog sticks: They do have a smaller range of motion than a DS3 so they are a bit sensitive. Not overly so but it will take a little bit of acclimation. They are still mushroom topped but fairly flat and the tops have a rubberized type center so they are pretty grippy.

Dpad and buttons: Bit smaller than the original PSP but really crisp and feel great.


Will post up more as I get some more time with it. So far I'm very impressed with the hardware. The entire thing is a teeny bit bigger than the OG PSP. Also had to do a firmware update out of the box, whole deal took little more than two minutes.
