That's not a beard- THIS is a beard.

Oh wait, this a blog and no one can see what I'm referring to.

I feel like there's a soon to be announced WWE-Pay Per View event coming soon: M8 vs G3.

Funny, my Note 3 Never says ATT on it...since I use Net10 as my ATT provider!!! 2 Lines on auto pay at $41 a month for 2.5 gigs each, and LTE speed. Why do you "experts" still pay ATT directly? (and have their logo on your status bar) ....unless you have and use unlimited data....

we "experts" aren't going through a proxy and getting throttled and tower-subjugated like you second class citizens.

I can't say for sure of course...but I don't believe I'm getting throttled down to a subjugated alien class. This is not Cricket wireless.....Right now in my home I'm getting 20mbits if that's being subjugated...well, then I'll take it. Yes, if you can get 10 gigs for $75, that's nice...but my budget is way tighter than it use to be in my unlimited Verizon - please take my money - I don't care about it days.
Now I care, I use my wireless Uverse connection at home and whatever wireless connection we have at work, and if I'm at the beach I can play music from my tablet or even stream some Pandora for a few hours on my phone and it won't eat that much data. I never run out of data..... .........It's a great deal when you're a tight wad...Like alien ole me. :D

1. Phil - the beard looks good. and either you lost weight and/or the beard makes you look much thinner. prob both?
2. Jerry - i like the new glasses.

what is this? the AC GQ Edition?

3. RE: carrier bloatware - let them install whatever they want - just make it uninstallable.

They are cool. What on earth was Phil doing at the beginning of the show? Your beard wins by about 4 miles BTW. Have a great day.

45:17 to 45:37 is why i buy nexus. my phones not filled with bloat and carrier crap. its unlocked and i can use any gsm carrier or mvno. I used to be a big samsung fan back in the GS2( still love that phone) and GS3 days. i tried a nexus phone and now i have a hard time considering anything else, except moto x close to stock with great added features. but i want unlocked for any GSM carrier. Freedom comes at an up front price, but i accept that. if you have to do the carrier thing , thats something i understand as well. i was there too. But i broke my chains and ran free.

This was my first AC podcast. At first it was apprehensive and uncomfortable but then I found myself enjoying it. That's probably because of the chair though.
