    That commercial was interesting I have to say. Doesn't make me want that phone though.

    That commercial was terrible, like they let the interns write and direct it. What an epic fail.

    Also, we already have a thread for Super Bowl ad discussion, so you should've put this in there. http://www.ps3trophies.com/forums/sp...on-thread.html

    The commercial is awesome. It's like most Superbowl commercials these days (ie. any car ad) and it poked fun at everything people already think of those idiots who wait in line for a new phone. At the end of the day, the product is a phone tablet which I don't think will work, but the commercial is great imo.

    The halftime show was better than this commercial, and several others. That's how bad it was.

    Because commercials need to be Oscar-worthy material.

    The way I see it is a phone with a pen, nothing special about it.

    On a side note: When the commercial first aired, I knew Ps360 would end up posting a thread about it.

    Buy a stylus...$10.

    I'm not sure about Android Market, but the App Store has hundreds of drawing and handwriting apps for use with a stylus or God forbid...your finger.

    fun fact most styluses don't work on smartphone screens


    the ones that do have this puffy ball shit instead of a thin stylus like you'd expect and cost around 20-40$

    True, they can be puffy. I'm assuming they emulate the tactility of a fingertip to register on a touchscreen. I've got a couple - a Targus to bash away in gesture games on iOS (which is far less distracting than my fat fingers on the screen), and a Pogo Sketch Pro for clients to sign PDF files (so they don't confuse the ends and scratch my screen!). Both are serviceable, but not exceptional.

    This is my next stylus purchase - LunaTik Touch Pen

    The stylus itself looks overly large, but the tip is shaped for finer penmanship. And it's a pen too...

    More fun facts - these guys designed the Xbox 360 Elite, Kinect and the 360 Wireless Speed Wheel.

    Alot actually, but the utility of this is still going to depend on how well it actually works and its price.

    I am dead serious when I say though that if this really works... This > every other tablet/mobile device including iPhone/iPad.

    I carry around a tablet so I can have all my notes/drawings/etc in one spot instead of in 10 binders. This means I don't even have to draft them anymore, I can just put that shit right in my phone because I can actually draw a complex model.

    I know, as ant1 pointed out, other styluses are available... None of them though, even the good ones, are built to work naitively across everything, and the good ones are pretty expensive.

    This, theoretically, is a high end naitve stylus packaged with my device. Meaning its cost to me is theoretically $0 (assuming its price is comparable to what I am looking at). Hard to beat.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.

    there's reviews already out for it

    Samsung Galaxy Note review | The Verge

    verge says it has amazing battery and hardware but the software is a tiny bit buggier than usual. Calls it a "Bad idea done extremely well" (7.9 out of 10, 8.9 User score)


    http://www.techradar.com/reviews/pho...1039199/review

    4/5 stars


    http://www.engadget.com/2011/10/28/s...y-note-review/

    only thing engadget bitches about is how big it is, but loves everything else.




    so basically the note is the samsung galaxy s2 but with a pen attachement, Awesome big screen, and minor bug issues.


    seems like a must buy if you want a tablet-like phone
