I have preferred Motorola hardware over Samsung for a long while, but Samsung is clearly the winner when it comes to Android devices (sales). Perhaps that changes with Google's acquisition of Moto.

Just root the phone and do a custom ROM and you can get rid of all the 'bloatware' on the phone.

Google makes money on the information it gathers. I suspect majority of people prefer it this way. You of course are free to pay for search, pay for maps, pay for backup, pay for instant messaging, pay for video messaging, or any of the other hundred things that are free because of the incentive by Google to give you those things in exchange for collecting data.

@Big Mike

I didn't realize you could just opt out of all Google tracking ... and stop them from posting pictures of your house in street views... where do you go to do that?

Thanks!

Does the custom rom violate warranties?

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Don't use Google search, don't use Google maps, don't use gmail, don't use Google Talk, etc - and then you've opted yourself out.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Thanks Mike, going to have to. Right now, its an expensive brick. 3 of my machines (running XP SP3, W7 32bit and W7 64bit) wont recognize the infernal device. And that is my complaint with Samsung. As hateful as Apple is, my old 4 and 4S simply worked (with Outlook, with Lotus Notes and with everything else). Technology making life easy. With S3 I am spending time making it work.

I hate technology for the sake of technology and reject the Android Nation notion that simply because it can do more, it is better.

No, I want a usable device, out of the box to make my life easy. Garbage S3 does not achieve that. I'll try rooting the device and maybe wait for a better Motorola unit in the future

Soooooo ... the choice is being "owned" by Apple .... or being stalked by Google

@ThatManFromTexas very true words. Interesting Google Now really tracks your movements but provides useful information in Jelly Bean so I let it though not sure I like it. It tries to predict the info you might want on your phone before you need it and is really cool but also a little scary. Good thing is you can opt of this stuff. I am sure Apple is tracking every iphone click as well. So not sure we can escape unless go off the grid.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Interesting I find Android devices much easier to hook into PC including the Samsungs I have owned. They link right in and can drag and drop files. The thing I hated most when I had iphones was having to to go through itunes to get most anything on the phone. Lets face even if someone loves Apple devices have to admit itunes stinks.

You hear a deep sigh from me when my kids or wife need me to do something on their iphones because if involves itunes such a pain. The entire android ecosystem works so much smoother than Apple. As fas as I am concerned it is a myth Apple is simpler to use and more refined than Android. The introduction of Jellybean with butter really brought Androids refinement game up.

I wish I could say the same. I hate Samsung. I don't love Apple, but its mere dislike but I now hate Samsung with a passion.

Plus, on Android central (where all the Android fan-boys reside), I had stated (before the jury verdict)

"Samsung just doesn't get it. Plus, I now truly believe (after using the Samsung Garbage S3 phone) that Samsung is just a hack and a copycat of Apple's ideas (and in buying the phone I support an un-imaginative and plagiarist company)"

Jury: Samsung willfully infringed Apple's software patents, Apple didn't infringe Samsung's | The Verge

Perhaps now, the Android fanboys will shut the hell up. Pathetic. They should be punished punitively with loss of revenue as well. A billion isn't enough

That lawsuit is ridiculous and much of what Apple does is just copied from others. The patent wars are just heating up and I would not count android out. It would not surprise me to see a similar verdict rendered against Apple in the future. They copy alot of stuff. I owned every iphone through 4 and I also own a samsung galaxy nexus and it is nothing like an iphone except for the fact it is a rectangle. There are also other lawsuits outside of the U.S. that Samsung has won against Apple. I am not sure why you hate Samsung so much . They make some great hardware.

I have a general philosophy in life about ideas. Apple created a lot of the ideas that brought about the i-everything ecosystem. Whether you like Apple or not, its about ideas. Ideas move mountains, and create value and wealth. Ideas are the cornerstones of an evolved society.

Without original ideas, we are nothing but insects. Mindless insects. We must value the thought process that creates and nourishes those ideas and must punish and abhor anything that impinges or destroys that creative process.

In my mind, that fine is a slap on the wrist. Bad boy, don't cheat! No, cheaters and copiers must be punished and treated as every other serious crime.

If Apple copied (truly copied other ideas), then they deserve they same punishment.
