Oh Apple how I hate thee. Looks like the new HTC Phones the One X and the Evo 4G LTE are delayed by customs cause Apple believes they are violating one of their patents.

Thanks Headache. Yeah, 4G was a deciding factor for me as well. My Spotify streaming will be thankful for sure.

which, hey... that's fine. but if you have multiple android devices, or you break your phone and get a replacement... or if you upgrade midyear... you could easily run into the problem where you can no longer deactivate any more devices and can't add anything, denying your phone or tablet from accessing your google play account.

certainly not a problem for everyone... but considering how big the developer community is with android you would think google would be a little more lenient with that policy.
and this is why i love google... they've already addressed the problem.

Yesterday we made a change to our device policy for music on Google Play. Any user can associate up to 10 devices to his or her account. Once you have connected 10 devices, you may add a new device only by deauthorizing an existing one from your account, and you may do this up to four times per year.

We limit the number of times you can swap out new devices at the request of some of our music partners in an effort to limit abuse. We understand this has caused some issues for users who often deauthorize and reauthorize the same device, and we are currently re-implementing the solution in a way that works for our users and music partners.

We apologize for any inconvenience and will update this page as new changes are made.

Verizon subscribers just to let you know, that their grandfather policy will be discontinued starting this summer.

That's a load of presumptuous blogging bull crap.

Verizon never said that all grandfathered plans will be canceled. They've said that they want to move people to shared data plans on new subscriptions.

If you have one phone on one plan, they've said nothing about you no longer keeping your grandfathered unlimited plan.

Doesn't mean they won't change it... just means that they haven't said that yet, despite what every blog has jumped to the conclusion of.

Well, my phone is "water damaged" so my warranty is out the window. Time to finally root it. This is so exciting.
