Do I want a Nexus 7? Do I want to wait for a Nexus 10? Can I connect with MS2 with it?

Since I can 3g/4g tether with my phone I'll be getting one without cell-phone network coverage.

I still don't understand how it connects to a charger. Does it use the Micro-USB port or something else? If I can't charge this thing in my car, I won't get it.

And in the end, all of these brands have had failures. All of them.

Others who have ridden with me have bought Kirkeys of their own afterwards.
All the kirkeys I have sat in are so uncomfortable, probably havnt ran into one of those yet.

As a general rule, yes, all modern smartphones (except the ones from Mapple) charge through the micro-USB port.

You can get a teeny little dongle to plug into your car's 12v socket and provide you with a USB power outlet. The one I use hardly protrudes from the outlet at all. I think I got it at Walmart or similar. Looks kinda like this:

Did my yearly clutch slave rebuild (yeah it fails that often). Went to bleed it and pedal feels stiff and not smooth at all. My only thought is that I cleaned the **** out of the cylinder and didn't lube it with fluid before putting the piston in. What do you think?

I'm looking at getting a different car when I get to my duty station, the 03/04 Cobra is pulling on my heart strings. Convince me that I'm an idiot for wanting a car that has a shitty interior and gets horrendous gas mileage.

And generally indifferent build quality, and overpowered, dead-feeling steering, and soft, squishy brakes, and a suspension that manages to be simultaneously harsh yet floaty, and a transmission that makes baby Jesus cry...

Mine actually cold over and then jam the window in place. I really do need to hurry with paint so I can get new molding, and paint my wiper arms that are rusty.

I think I'm gonna start slowly creeping around this forum... and bring the Reddit downvoting plague here... and downvote allll the asshats.


Of course this is strictly for entertainment purposes.... I feel this tool is under utilized.
