My $75 android with $25/mo works just fine.  A big step up from my $5 burner that fit right in in the Home Depot parking lot. 

Phones and cars aren't lifestyle statements in my universe.

I don't care about the "lifestyle statement" I just like toys.

Unlike Viking Ranges and Cervelo bikes, right?  ;)

And do not forget original artwork, live Lady Gaga shows, and a Brazilian wax.

And the Range Rover Sport.  Don't forget that or the ubiquitous Audi A4.  This is the land of needledicks after all.

Hey, you need that maneuverability to navigate the underground garage at the P Street Whole Foods.

Not to mention wet leaves in the fall- it's a miracle anyone in a front wheel drive survives

This one has a projector that you can use to project a 50" HD display up on your wall.

Verizon Wireless is having a sale today. $100 bucks off all 4G phones. Leap Day Sale.

Galaxy Nexus for 200

Thunderbolt and Bionic for free

Is the Nexus $200 better than the Thunderbolt or Bionic?

Anyone else find At Bat 12 in the Android market? Is the Market smart enough to know when your phone is too old/back level to run an app?

I found it.  Got it!  Not sure if you bring up the App, if it will tell you the requirements.

It requires 2.2. I have 2.1. Interesting thing is it doesn't show up in the Market for me. Is the Market sensitive to your phone's OS? It seems like it.

Yeah, likewise found it and got it the day it was released. $15 would be ouch inducing every year if not for the radio access... no idea as to your second question, as I'm using a Transformer Prime TF201, the most amazing piece of hardware ever btw, but so performance of the app definitely wouldn't be an issue.

I've been meaning to post in this thread for a while though, so I'll add my comments here... switched from tablets using iOS to Android in December, and man, what a difference. Never going back. Android is so much better, having root access is a godsend, and not being held to Apple restrictions is awesome. Now if only theyd fix the bugs with Chrome, my browser of choice on a tablet, I'd be happy. And the Transformer Prime, if you are in the market for a tablet... you can't go wrong with it. Best tablet out there by far, that's not even factoring in the keyboard attachment that turns it into a fully functional laptop. Just all around awesomeness for anyone purchasing in the near future, debating an iPad3, or stuck with a yucky, limiting, expensive, older iPad.

If you share iTunes accounts (like my wife and I do) pay once and you've got it across multiple device streaming at the same time.  :az: :az: :az:

Same goes for Android though... Google Marketplace, one Google account, multiple devices. I know since I got the HP $100 tablet first as a gimmick, then loved Android so much I got the Transformer Prime a couple weeks ago. Granted, you switch, you have to rebuy everything, which sucks, but you can share the same way you can with iTunes accounts. Its not a one account per machine. I'm assuming that's what you're talking about at least, although the mention of streaming shakes my confidence on that regard slightly.

The apps always duplicated across machines/devices, what I'm referring to is being able to stream on both at the same time with a single account.

I don't believe MLB let you do it last year, hence my excitement.
