Comment Re:Oh this is easy .... (Score 1) 394

Do you need a Google account if you buy an Android phone? Seriously asking. I swear when I set mine up I skipped the setup for the account. I added one only for the Play Store I thought.

As in added one after the fact of the phone being setup... IE, I could have gone without it if I didn't want the Play Store.

Comment Re:Bigger options button is the main one (Score 1) 59

The complaint I have is in Madden and a few other games, is I've been screwed trying to hit the options button but missing it and hitting the touch-pad button. I've called multiple timeouts (touch-pad) in Madden when I was just trying to pause the game (options). Granted, that's maybe more of an issue with controller button mapping in the game (which I could change), but I still feel it's not the perfect layout. I do prefer it over the X360 controller I had. Haven't tried a Xbox One controller yet though.

even webOS was significantly underrated. multitasking on my old Pre was wayyy better than on any of the crappy android or windows 8 phones i've had since :(

the card-view or whatever it was called as spot on... the current Android tries a similar approach but still doesn't feel quite the same...

Comment Another butt-ugly electric car... yawn (Score 1) 164

Yet another electric / hybrid car that looks like crap IMHO. Why not make it look more in line with your other models?

One thing I wish Ford or one of the companies that built muscle cars, was take that body style, almost copy it exactly, and convert it into a hybrid or electric vehicle. Obviously, they'd have to change alot of stuff for structural integrity, make it carbon fiber, etc, but keep the body shape and curves.

Imagine a car that looked like a 70's Mach 1 that was hybrid or electric... Of course, then people can't be smug driving these cars. Saying... Thanks!!

Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and think what nobody else has thought.
