The Lounge: Off Topic Forum / Nexus 7,8,9...or 12?
« on: July 25, 2014, 08:15:24 PM »
As some of you may know there's been endless rumors of just what the follow up to the Nexus 7 2nd generation will be.  A 3rd generation Nexus 7?  A Nexus 8?  How about a Nexus 9?!   That's right, one of the more recent reports is that Google might actually have a 9 inch tablet as the replacement but that's not all.  There's also reports that Google might actually come out with a new line of 3 tablets.  That's right...3!   A 7 inch, 9 inch and 12 inch.  Most reports have HTC as the manufacturer and have these featuring state of the art processors and new high resolution screens that exceed 1080p.  So what are your thoughts folks?  Would you buy a 9 inch tablet?  How about a 12?  Or is the 7 inch original the best way to go?

Agreed.  It's a great little device.  Make sure to check out our Chromecast Forum at


It's Back!!  The lowest price for a 32GB 2013 Nexus 7...  Grab a 32GB Nexus 2013 (factory refurbished) right now on Ebay for only $159.99 while supplies last. This is a full $110 off list of $269 for a brand new unit and the lowest price we've seen for a 2nd generation 2013 Nexus 7 32GB refurbished unit.  It comes with a 90 day Asus warranty in an Asus recertified brown box.  Full HD 1920 x 1200 display, Snapdragon 4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, etc.  Definitely gonna go fast so grab one at the link below.  Free Shipping too!


I don't post many non-Nexus 7 deals on the site but this one is good enough to do so.   If you've ever researched or wanted a wireless bluetooth rechargeable speaker with its own amplification and awesome sound then you know the Jawbone Jambox sets the standard.  It usually lists for $150 but you can grab a remanufactured, like new unit in one of any of 10 color choices for $100 off...only $49.99.   That's a ridiculously low price for one of these and I have one myself and can attest that it's awesome.  The sound has great bass and fills the room or the yard enabling you to share any music or streaming content from your tablet with everyone.  It's great for movies too if you don't want to listen to the small tablet speakers or use headphones.  This offer is on Ebay's daily deals right now so grab one before they run out and make sure to pick the color you want before you click the buy button.


The original 2012 Nexus 7 was the tablet that really changed the tablet landscape and put 7 inch models on the map.  The 2012 model had the Tegra 3 processor, Wifi, a great high resolution IPS screen with 1280 x 800 resolution and listed for $249 for the 32GB model.  Right now there's a great deal on the 2012 Nexus 7 with 32GB of memory for only $99 for a remanufactured unit.  The Tegra 3 is still a very powerful processor that will run just about all your favorite apps and games just fine.   At $99 it's a full $150 off the original price and while not the latest and greatest model is great if you're on a budget or if you'd like a 2nd tablet for vacations, the office or the kids.  You can grab one while they last at the link below.


Chromecast now lets you mirror your screen natively via your Android tablet or phone.  No 3rd party app required.  This was a functionality that was discussed and promised during Google I/O a couple of weeks ago and now they've followed through.  Chromecast apps will now show a 'cast screen' option and Nexus devices will even have the option in the settings menu so you don't have to use the Chromecast app itself.  This is an awesome feature that makes your Android device and Chromecast even more powerful.  I'll be surfing my web and using my big screen tv while controlling it all from my Nexus 7 from now on.  The update is rolling out as we speak and over the next few days in both the Chromecast app via a 1.7 update as well as individual updates for various phones by Samsung, LG, HTC and others.

Last week was Google's 7th annual I/O conference held in San Francisco.  During I/O Google shows all the latest projects it's working on and this year the two 'stars' of the show were Android Wear, Google's version of Android for the wearable platform such as smart watches, and Android L, which is destined to be the next version of Android and features a new graphical language called 'material design'.  Since we know some Nexus 7 owners are more than just casual users and love seeing all the nitty gritty and latest cutting edge stuff from Google we thought we'd link the full Keynote video above for your viewing pleasure.  It's a long video...over two hours...and it covers a lot of ground and touches on other topics such as developments in Chrome, a version of Android targeted to developing markets called 'Android One', Google TV, Chromecast, and much more.  There's also the first look at some hardware for the wrist...three smart watches for the new Android Wear platform. 

We have a dedicated site for Android Wear that we invite you all to join as this exciting new platform continues to develop and grow in popularity.  It's at Android Wear Forum.  In the meantime feel free to skip around a bit on the video above if you don't want to see the whole show.  But if you do have the time it's well worth the watch and will fill you in on the direction that Google is taking mobile computing for the current year and you'll also get to see much of the new version of Android that will be appearing on your devices just around the corner.

The Lounge: Off Topic Forum / Nexus 8 by HTC this summer?
« on: April 21, 2014, 01:11:59 PM »
So is reporting that HTC will be making the next small Nexus tablet and it'll be called the Nexus 8 and released this summer.   Take it with a big grain of salt however cause Digitimes is hit or miss with their rumors/reporting.


We'd like to wish a very Happy Easter to everyone from the Nexus 7 Forum!


As some of you might know, Google introduced a brand new device platform earlier this week specifically for wearable devices.  'Android Wear' is based on the Android OS and features notifications and Google Now functionality along with a specialized SDK for apps, games and more for wearable devices.  Along with the announcement several manufacturers either announced or previewed upcoming Android Wear devices including Motorola, LG, Sony, Fossil, Sony and more.   We've started a brand new forum just for Android Wear and all the devices that will follow at  Please cme on by and help us build this new exciting community dedicated to the Android Wear, wearable device platform.

<a href="" target="_blank" class="new_win"></a>


Google made a bunch of new announcements over the past couple of days.  Most pertinent to Nexus 7 fans is that their 7 inch tablet will now be made available in 8 additional countries including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Portugal and Sweden.  Available through the Google Play Store in each respective market, this will give customers the ability, as in other areas where the Nexus 7 is available, the ability to purchase the phone direct without a contract from carriers.   Prices fluctuate depending on country so check with your local market.  The Nexus 5 phone is also available in the same additional markets and the Chromecast has been made available in some of them as well.  Thus we should be welcoming a lot of new Nexus and Android fans to our exclusive fan base!

The Lounge: Off Topic Forum / Re: Malaysia Flight 370
« on: March 17, 2014, 05:38:24 PM »
it now appears ACARS and tracking systems were switched off at different times, while plane was inflight. than MUST have been done in the cockpit, so my guess is hijacked by flight crew, or terrorists???

The Yanks know more, but will keep silent, because they don't want people to know the monitoring capabilities they have......

From what I've read the transponder and different parts of the ACARS can fail separately if there's a fire or short circuits going on in the plane.  Apparently ACARS isn't just one thing but a series of different systems...there's a good article about how a catastrophic event could cause all the different shutdowns and turns and changes in altitude on CNN today.

Also, Malaysia has backtracked on their assertion that the last contact with the pilots was after the systems were shut down.  Now they're saying the ACARS sends info every 30 minutes and they received the last contact before the last conversation with the pilots.   But they never got the next one 30 minutes later.  So since the transponder went out 2 minutes after the last convo with the pilots it's conceivable the ACARS systems went out after that contact as well.   

If there's one thing I've learned following this whole thing it's that Malaysia is definitely over their head in handling an investigation of this size.   They release erroneous or misleading info and apparently are refusing to cooperate with either the Chinese or the US FBI.   I think they're just trying to cover their butts.


We want to wish everyone a Happy Saint Patrick's Day.  Spring is just around the corner!
