Picked up this cute jacket at Zara while we were in SF! They were having a huge sale on outerwear…this one, however, was not on sale. I didn’t care, I just HAD to have it. :]

Pooh and I just got the Google Nexus 10 in the mail today. I absolutely love it!
One feature that they’ve added that I really like is multiple user support. Since we don’t need 2 tablets, it’s nice to be able to switch to my profile and have all my accounts already logged into my apps and vice versa. Switching users is as quick and simple as unlocking the screen.
The 2560×1600 high resolution screen and powerful processor displays images and video beautifully. They were also very smart in designing the tablet with front facing speakers, which makes watching porn a fully pleasurable experience!
The Nexus 10 comes with the latest version of Android (4.2). The interface is clean and fully customizable. I prefer the Nexus 10 much more than our old Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
Pooh and I also picked up an HDMI cable to see how the tablet displayed on our TV. Since the screen on the Nexus 10 has a high def 2560×1600 resolution, displaying on our TV was like a mirror image. The images on both screens were in high def. Videos and apps played seamlessly.
There’s still much more for me to try out on it but so far so good! I’m definitely satisfied with the Nexus 10 and I highly recommend it. Droid users will love it and I can see a lot of iPad/iPhone users liking it as well.
Pooh and I picked up a new toy. No, not “that” kind of toy! We got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from Best Buy. There was a special promo from ShopKick (click my referral link if you’re interested – offer ends Nov 23rd), that if you purchase a Galaxy Tab you also get a free USB adapter and a $50 gift card! We’ve been wanting a tablet for a while and this one seems to be the best contender to the iPad2, so we thought we might as well take advantage of this great deal!
Blogging definitely feels easier on this thing than on my phone. :) We didn’t feel we needed a 32gig since I use Google/Picasa to store my images and Pooh uses Google Music to store all his music. We watch movies but we have an external hard drive that we can use to store and switch out files. If you want to just have everything on your tablet, then a 32gig might be for you. Otherwise, a 16gig should suffice. I still haven’t been able to play with it much but I’m loving it so far. I use an iPad2 at work and think both are great…but I think I’m more of an Android kind of guy. ;)
Since I didn’t get Pooh anything for Christmas and he has been talking about the Nexus One non-stop since it came out, I decided to get him one. Unfortunately, both our plans for T-Mobile were uneligible for an upgrade (discounted rate w/ 2 year added on contract) so I ended up buying the unlocked phone at full price – but definitely worth it. He was extremely happy and couldn’t wait for it to ship. It included overnight shipping but since we ordered it at night, we didn’t get it until 2 days later (today actually).
He was like a little kid opening his presents on Christmas morning. I love seeing him so happy and full of excitement. We received the phone this morning at work. He came running to my office with the box in his hand and a huge smile on his face. I told him he could play with it at work but not to mess up the packaging; I wanted to take “unboxing pictures” as soon as we got home. I wish I had my camera to take pictures of him opening the box. His eyes lit up and his smile was stretching ear to ear. I love him so much!
The phone is an AWESOME phone. It’s extremely fast and runs on an impressive 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The handheld features a beautiful 3.7″ touchscreen display and 5-megapixel camera with LED flash. A FLASH!!! I really want to get one of these bad boys for myself since I’ve been complaining about the camera on my G1. The phone’s interface is much improved from my G1. The Nexus One has Android 2.1 OS offers a lot of customization and, unlike the iPhone, you can run several apps simultaneously. Yep, you can surf the web while playing music AND have your AIM running in the background. (I still wouldn’t mind a free iPhone if anyone were to offer… ;) One feature that really made me go “woah” was the awesome moving background/wallpapers. Pooh showed me one background that reacted to the music playing on his phone. This phone definitely makes my PDA, laptop, and desktop look obsolete. Hopefully I’ll be able to pick myself up one after working the corner on El Cajon for a couple minutes. Yep, minutes. :P
This jacket is next on my “Things2buy” list. It doesn’t look that great to me from the images I saw on UrbanOutfitter’s website, but I fell in love with it when I tried it on at the Americana (during our “mini-vaca” in LA 2 weeks ago). Unfortunately, the UrbanOutfitters here in San Diego does not have the black version in stock. I guess I’ll have to make another trip to LA or just order it online.
