Nexus One: The Conclusion

So in case you live in a hollowed out rock in someone's closet and have not heard... I FINALLY got my Nexus One.

I admit I was curious to see how long it would take for him to notice this rather large purchase and the line item "Google Nexus One" on his statement. It was much quicker than I had expected. Three days. Yep, three days is all it took, at which point I sadly was obligated to pay him the cash amount for the purchase.
You can be assured that I will be back in action on the blog now as my fundraising quest has ended... for now...

1. WiFi Assistant

This could/should be huge… like really super duper huge. Free high speed WiFi all over the place. Stream and browse at will! That said I’ve been on Project Fi for 4 months and have only had 3 or 4 keys. This needs to improve drastically in order to mitigate the large price increase people coming from far more data friendly plans would…
