Initial report: I LOVE the Nexus 10.
It is so buttery smooth, fast, lagless.. I went ahead and piled on a reasonable number of apps (reasonable amount for me — not too many by my standards and way too many by most of my friends’) and let a bunch of them keep running in background and had it running constantly for several hours straight and the only snag/slowdown I experienced was a few seconds where the system hung—which then made me realize the device had gotten quite warm and I hastened to stop overburdening it (poor thing, I never let it have a moments’ rest since it got unboxed and charged), and then it cooled down quickly and was perfect again and I haven’t experienced any heating or lag since. I’m going to have to run a factory reset on the Nexus 7 and see if I can get that back to running smoothly again, but I don’t think it ever managed as smoothly and quickly on larger tasks the way this one does… I played Transformers in full HD on the Nex10 and could jump around without any delays or sputtering of any kind. Every pixel lovely.
I need a cover for it asap.. I know exactly which cover I’m getting, but it’s not available yet.
Also, the latest beta version Swype is YAY (Android’s own swipe-style keyboard is a fantastic addition to the stock keyboard, but Swype still is much more practiced,efficient,intelligent).
My thoughts so far on 4.2 (running on Nexus 7): …
I can highly recommend the Google Nexus 7; mine is much a part of my daily life.

She is awesome and they so should have her on the team.
The things this show gets right, it gets really right.
O_O I’d forgotten the contents of the beginning of Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and started the audiobook and ohmigosh. So much ohmigosh.
I think I’m the only person I know who’s completely excited to see Step Up Revolution 3D, and that’s easily because I’m the only person I know who saw Step Up 3D in 3D. People, you don’t know have any idea what you missed and what you missed was aMAYzing with really large font — exactly what 3D film should be and has never been in any other 3D film ever so far (until hopefully this next one which I am completely excited to see). I will enjoy it enough for all of you.
- Update, Step Up Revolution 3D was NO Step Up 3D
_ I think they tried to push too many gimmicks (pretty much all of which were in the trailers). Where Step Up 3D was effective with simple scenes that really popped in 3D and were simply fun, Step Up Revolution instead built big complicated scenes with bungee cords, bouncing cars, bouncing stilts, trampolines, light shows… And way way too much Miami, bikinis, heavily-breathing bodies touching and lips close; too much, not endearing, not fun; not like the previous Step Up movies. The dance scene with the suits was stunningly beautiful; loved that one. The art gallery scene was very beautiful but didn’t quite make it to incredible for me where I would have expected it.. so many scenes in the previous movies were incredible to me. And the songs weren’t as catchy and the credits weren’t mesmerizing as the last one was. I think I need to see it again to appreciate the dance scenes better, but my impression was that they were too cluttered and gimmicky, where the dancers and their dancing should have stood on their own. : / And the 3D didn’t pop! What happened? The last one was so awesome -_
Where do I get the song Flii Stylz – Rush the Floor ? WHERE?! This is becoming irritating.

Why is the Google Nexus 7 tablet being directly compared to Amazon’s Kindle Fire at cost when Amazon does not charge tax or shipping for its Kindle Fire device?
Touch is not a good show for me. Empathy, people, connections, patterns, compassion, courage.
Video for Pearl and the Beard’s Prodigal Daughter is super cute and beautiful. But it’s not a music video; has no correspondence with any of the sound from the song. Could have easily been accomplished with adjustment of scenes to time with the music; would make it one of the most beautiful music videos ever.
