    What is it with Android equalizers and the poor sound quality?

    I really shake my head in dismay when I see so many 5 star reviews on various music players and supposed system wide equalizers. The reason? Other than poweramp and neutron player, the equalizer is basically crap. What happens is, if you move the higher frequency up, it will cut the...

    My wife has the lg f6 and the 60.00 dollar unlimited plan, I just went up to metro yesterday and bought myself an f6 and had them put it onto her account so we could get the 5 dollar savings on each line. The bill came out to 169 bucks and some change. The receipt says 69.99 for the phone...

    Here's Ubuntu's official web page Ubuntu for Android | Devices | Ubuntu I've know about this for a while now. I wonder if it will ever happen? I was and am really disappointed that Motorola decided to scrap webtop... But this would be awesome! Do you think Ubuntu will pull it off? Will...

    Root Eclipse version 1.2 rom now available for ICS .246

    Nitro has done it again! I have installed his rom for the .246 OTA official update and love it! If you've ever ran one of his roms, things are a little diffferent. You have to be running safestrap version 3.05 to intall this new rom. This means you cannot have bionic bootstrap installed (CWM)...

    Consumer greed? (Controversial)

    I've defended myself and others whom freely claim to use a lot of data. Just on the phone (My bionic) itself I was pulling down an average of 43 gigs a month. I had little reason to tether because of webtop that had a full Mozilla Firefox browser. (Webtop is a feature of this and some other...

    Help Wifi incredibly sluggish, suggestions?

    Alright, I dunno if the way I'm doing this is what's causing this, but here it goes. I just added the hotspot tethering to my account and am using it for my computer and my other bionic which is not activated. The computer seems just fine but the unactivated bionic running running from the...

    Verizon offers unlimited wifi hotspot to grandfathered users! Why?

    I'm a grandfathered unlimited customer. I tripped on something surfing the web that was three weeks old claiming this. I just got off the phone with Verizon and found it is very much true! I went ahead and had the feature put on, 30 dollars a month at this time will get you unlimited data! To...

    Root Clockwork mod and Bionic bootstrapper question.

    Is it necessary to to have cwm installed along with the bionic boot strapper? I ask because I never use clm for anything and always do things in bionic bootstrapper recovery mode such as back ups and restores. Is there any benefits to even intalling/flashing Clockwork mod? Does it somehow...

    I have a question, I'm building a guide to stop Verizon OTA updates to ICS and JB.

    It's not of popular choice, but there are those for what ever reason who do not wish to upgrade to ICS or JB. I put together a guide on the bionic forums and suspect all Verizon motos are the same. I think it's only fair that those who do not wish to upgrade have a choice and I wish to...

    What if, by law every last person had to use their real name on the internet?

    I often wonder this. I know, I think too much.... lol Let me write up a scenario here and then you can chime in with your your opinions and concerns or lack thereof. :) Let's just hypothetically say that a global law required your full name and state and county of residence (Not your house...

    Welp, no more Youtube updates for my phones! lol

    I sure am glad I back up my apps and keep archives. Though youtube came with the phone, I like to keep an older version on hand. So yeah, I recently updated the youtube app on my bionic. I don't use it all that much, but tonight was different... There was ads in the d*mn videos (At the...

    Was adobe paid off to ditch linux when it's coming to flash?

    Android users got the shaft, but so did linux! They say they will provide security updates but stop development for linux distros. Funny... Mac and Windows still gets the support. Why is this? Conspiracy theory? Over the years I have read things about both Microsoft and Apple...

    OMG! I actually saw a movie that didn't have a Mac in it!

    Most every movie I have seen always has mac books in them! Is this a marketing/social engineering thing??? I about feel out of my chair seeing this movie the other night that DIDN'T have a Mac, but some other brand! I'm still blown away! :D

    Why would the entertainment biz sit on old movies? Why not hand em to hulu or netflix?

    This is just an uneducated piece of personal philosophy. I would like opinions from people on this. Of hundreds of thousands of movies made, why won't the powers that be just release them to hulu, crackle or Netflix? For instance, a lot of decent movies that were never a blockbuster made...

    Webtop 3.0 officially sucks!

    I may sell my bionic, any offers??? First off, I walk away and the music disconnects on my bluetooth headset when the screen goes to sleep. Second, I can no longer BLOG with even the mobile browsers.. F*ck you Motorola... They might as well just offer the mirror mode only! lol Damn, I knew...

    Web forums pet peeve

    This is something that's annoys me... I do a lot of Google searches for Android related questions amongst other things. I come across forums where you have to be a member just to see a link of any kind that one of their members posted! Just to let THEM know, I mostly skip your forums in...

    Motorola to scrap webtop? What a backwards move...

    From what I've read, Motorola plans to scrap webtop with future models of smartphones! What a step backwards if you ask me. They got it right with webtop 2.0 and webtop 3.0 is more of a parlor trick. I know webtop 2.0 was slow, but with new quadcores phones coming soon with more ram, I bet it...

    Finally! A way to get rid of unused apps in the playstore! Thank you google!

    I have the Droid bionic and just upgraded to Ice cream sandwich. I don't know if it is the playstore itself or an ics thing but. There is a way to remove unwanted app in "My apps" in the playstore! I used to dread having to download all of my apps because of having to dig through tons of apps I...

    Root I'm not going to worry about verizon and rooting! lol (ICS Root checker)

    So like yeah. I fxz'd back to 905 stock unrooted and did the update. Before I rooted I figured I would check the root checker in the stock recovery menu. Guess what? It read "1/1"! For those of you that don't know, that's supposed to be this thing that alerts if the phone is or ever was...

    Any significant differences between ics .232 & .246

    Is there any significant difference between .232 and .246? The more I'm using ics on my daily driver, the more I like it (Still don't care for webtop). This is kind of a poll, so please be descriptive. :) I'm asking because I have not found any real side by side comparisons. If there's...

    Alright, I said would never run ics, but...

    I have two bionics, both blocked from the ota update. I went ahead and did a clean install of .232 and you know, I really like it despite webtop 3.0! People were right! this phone flies now! So far adobe flash appears to be working. All my apps work except Resco radio, no biggie. When...

    Am I missing something here? The best system wide EQ? Pfft...

    Seems to me poweramp is the only ones who have came up with an effective equalizer, problem is, it only works for power amp! My favorite media player is astro nova because of the ability to increase the speed of the music, but their EQ sucks! I offered a hefty donation to the poweramp devs to...
