I really think you will like it.

Best apps to check out are custom keyboards (I use Swiftkey although I don't know if they have your language pack) and good widget apps (I use widgetsoid for my toggle widget).

Might also want to check out some wifi tether apps (they often require root).

I use easytether, and it doesn't require root. It uses phone's USB driver to connect to your phone, for 3g internet. I no longer use dialup, I use Sprint's 3G! I can download a program at like 155kbps.

I think they mean sync and hotspot via Wifi instead of USB and Bluetooth. Like sharing 3G internet to lappy or tablet, or uploading music, downloading photos.

I never let the fuel tank get below about 2-3 gallons left because you can ruin the fuel pump that way (this applies to pretty much any car.)

I end up doing a lot of grocery shopping at fry's since they're right around the corner (and the food is priced well) and usually by the time I need to re-fuel (once a month or so) I've bought enough groceries to get 20 cents off per gallon (which is usable at nearly any gas station around here, arco being a notable exception.)

I think last time I bought gas it ended up being about $3.20 per gallon. In your terms that would be about 83 cents per liter.

It costs be $90 to fill my XR6Turbo. Keep in mind I don't have a Galaxy S3. I put 100 Octane in, it's about 1.50 a litre. Times are touch here if you don't own an S3. ::

I did it on purpose. The best things aren't available on iOS.

Oh ViN, your VeiL is so ThiN. The apps are what makes iOS in the end. Google can be as fast and configurable as you want, in the end the apps are pretty second rate compared to the iOS version. Especially Tablet wise. ::

I tried swiftkey x free edition and it's really good but I find the standard skins to not go too well with the standard message app look. I now use perfect keyboard free edition which I find even better than swiftkey x. It only comes with 1 skin unless you buy the full version but I think the standard skin looks good and fairly neutral. The functionality is a bit better than swiftkey X IMO and has a lot of options for customisation... especially for key size in both portrait and landscape modes separately.

The standard keyboard on the SGS2 is horrible, the SGS3 hasn't changed it by the looks of things although with the bigger screen it would probably be a bit better. My main gripe is the small space bar being offset slightly to one side - it results in hitting the . key instead of the space bar very often. Stupid move by samsung and I have no idea why they didn't change it! The prediction is also much better with perfect keyboard and swiftkey. If you're not 100% accurate it does a very good job of predicting what word you meant to type, where the Samsung default almost always picks stupid words.

You guys want to know the best way to troll iphone users? Use your android phone to direct gratuitous ARP's at them with the default gateway's IP address pointing to a bogus MAC address

There's nothing they can do about it as there's no app that will prevent it.

You can also taunt iphone users with a cold bottle of Dr. Pepper. Trust me, I'm an iphone user and it gets me every time.
