The Lounge: Off Topic Forum / Nexus 8 by HTC this summer?
« on: April 21, 2014, 01:11:59 PM »
So Digitimes.com 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.

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 www.AndroidWearForum.com.  Please cme on by and help us build this new exciting community dedicated to the Android Wear, wearable device platform.

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!

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!

The Lounge: Off Topic Forum / Malaysia Flight 370
« on: March 14, 2014, 01:12:21 AM »
Any thoughts or theories on what happened to the missing flight 370?   

My theory is this:

Most likely scenario is a cockpit fire similar to what happened to EgyptAir Flight B772 in 2011. A massive catastrophic fire in the crew cabin that destroyed the controls and electronics, made the windows impossible to see through, burnt a hole right through the planes metal. The crew would have no way to communicate with the ground…and no way to control the aircraft. The plane would be full of smoke and they’d all basically just be stuck sitting in the airplane praying until it crashed. In the EgyptAir incident they never 100% nailed down the cause but it was suspected to be a bad oxygen hose attachment combined with some short circuit….but the oxygen leak fueled the fire and made it impossible to put out.

In the EgyptAir incident it took place on the ground and it took 90 minutes for firefighters to put the blaze out even though they were on the scene within minutes. If this happened at 35,000 feet…all would be lost.

Here’s a link to a related article on it. It would explain everything…the transponders going out, etc.

Let's hear your thoughts.  It's most likely a tragic story and I'm not hopeful for a happy ending...but I guess anything is possible...

The Lounge: Off Topic Forum / Nexus 8 rumors
« on: March 12, 2014, 10:01:08 PM »
So I'm sure some of you have seen that there's been several reports over the past few weeks about a Nexus 8 tablet that Google is working on.   It's just rumor for now but some of the 'supposed'...and take them with a big grain of salt....details include it being made by LG and having a 64bit intel processor inside.  Any thoughts on this from our forum members?   Would you buy a Nexus 8?   What would a Nexus 8 tablet have to have for you to be interested and do you prefer the Nexus 7 size or the Nexus 8 size in a tablet?

Nope.  Still got them in stock as of this post.  Just checked.  Hit the link in the original post to go to the page.

We kinda have this already with the Nexus 7 Deals, Discounts and Sales Board.   Whenever we come across a sale price that's worth noting we usually post it there or on the front page.  But it's not really worth our time to keep an ongoing tally of every shopping site and their prices, etc as most of the people on this forum already own a Nexus 7.  We do have links to the Nexus 7 on Amazon on the front page as well which usually is at a pretty decent price lower than the Google Play price.   (usually $199/$229 instead of $229/$269 on Google Play).
