LG... Seriously?

Violence might void your warranty with LG??

It is becoming a very popular opinion that LG is possibly the worst Android manufacturer around. This is a sentiment I regrettably share as I've waited for my buggy G-Slate to see some sort of update and/or bug fix since the day I bought it. Even more recently released tablets like the Transformer are already seeing the 3.2 update, but that's not what this post is about.

This post about the deplorable communication demonstrated by LG. I did my routine check of the LG Forums to see if there is any new news on my G-Slate. That's when I came across this post, "How to GET 3.2 on G-Slate" A user posts:
"OK this is kind of a tricky method but it Will work 100% First call LG for being such dicks...atleast twice a day for a month. Then get on a chat board for another few weeks and find how stupid LG is... OK you should be ready for next....Buy you an AA-12 if you dont know what that is google it.. Get a 1000 rounds of ammo and head to LG's corporate office I'll meet you there.. BET we get that update......."
Wow, not cool, seriously, not cool ...but then a mod replied...
"If you wait a bit longer 3.1 update will be out soon and you don't have to risk voiding warranty to update to it...don't know timing on 3.2 yet."

... yep, that's right kids, illegal and hostile action towards LG could 'risk voiding your warranty'. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? Did you even read the part where he threatened to come up to LG with a gun?!?! Seriously LG, seriously? No wonder you can't hear user feedback, you're not even reading it.

Some More Thoughts about Project Fi

First off... I’m still using Project Fi.This post originally started as a response to a comment about people quitting Project Fi too early and not letting the Project grow and improve... but it got long, so now it's a blog post. Boom.
I agree with many that Project Fi is still in its early stages, in “Project” mode, and has not been around long enough to work out all the kinks. The things some people say it offers that other services don’t (cross device calls and texts) can be achieved for free with Google Voice and there is very little difference to the end users. The biggest things Project Fi has going for it are these two things:

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…
