“Yeah, it's quite disgusting look at. I have a great friend and an awesome former professor who both, sad to say, have this problem. As much as you try not to focus on the spit, it just jumps out at you.”

“LOlololol! Man. I would hate to be them or at least go and see if I could get medical help for that issue.”
“Yeah, the whole wired jaw thing and the accident was touched on in his first major studio released single, "Through the Wire". Which I thought was quite impressive considering he supposedly recorded the whole track while his jaw was still wired shut.”

“Sounds impressive, the action/activity, but I don't listen to his "music" AT ALL! Not only him but quite a few others. There are really no "singers" today that can sing to me like in yesteryear. That's my opinion. I don't listen also because you never know when they will assault you with offensive words or subject matter. Music is supposed to be soothing and calming to me and most of these "artist" today have no concept of that. But to each his own. I'm not downing anyone else for liking it. Maybe I am just too out of touch, but that works for me.”
“Lol, looking at his gave wasn't nearly as difficult for me to endure, though I will say looking at his jaw, which was previously damaged and wired shut from his automobile accident years ago, felt a bit weird at times. Plus it looked like he had that ball of spit on the lip problem that some have while they're talking.
On a more relevant note, it is good to see that someone else understood the point I was making. Kanye said things that most entertainers wouldn't say during an interview, especially when it's on a show with a lighthearted comedy slant. However Kanye still has a lot of personal growth to go through when it comes to publicly relaying his feelings and thoughts. Though I'm sure most people with eccentric personalities fall within this area of needed growth.”

“EEwww! Lolololol.. So that's what happened to his lower jaw. It just looks disturbing to me. And on your relevant note: agreed.”
“Actually you didn't word it as a question, plus your statements are vague.
My original reply post wasn't meant to pass a judgement of good or bad. His self-assurance and confidence in his abilities and thoughts drives him to speak out the way he does with little regard in how it is received. The point I was making is that even though his personality traits leave a lot to be desired for most, he made a lot of valid points about the industry that he's in. Thus, is he good or bad...I don't know. The things he says in this interview, were they bad or good...I wouldn't use those adjectives to describe it. Off the top of my head I'd use brazen, heartfelt, and hyperbolic.”
“Hey, I'll give you that...I'm in agreement with you there. Though, I'll say this about anyone making such a statement, regardless of whether it holds true or not; if making and believing such an impudent comment about oneself drives someone to strive for their best, then I say they do what works for them.”
“That is the whole point of sensors in the cars and further down the road even in the roads. That's how a lot of the current automated functions work now so that all cars being automated isn't necessary.”
“Cellular phones are mos def not a necessity for patents with teens. They are however a great convenience that ease the concerns of many parents that tend to worry a lot about their children. I'm just saying.”

“Cell phones are not a necessity for ANYBODY. So what. Just saying.”
“It's not so much about that you can't see on a 3.5-inch screen (though some out there can't). It's more about screen real estate. When you have more screen real estate at the same resolution pixel density you can obviously fit more onto the screen at one time. Thus you can rest more of a web page without having to scroll or zoom out/in as often, you can design apps that allow you to put more options on a page/form/dialog without having to create as many additional pages, more of the finer details in hi-def games and videos can be recognized and appreciated. You would even have a better experience running a virtual remote desktop app on your phone as well. There are all kinds of benefits you can get by having a larger screen on a smartphone my friend.”

“Correction**** that should be "...you can read more of a web page..." and not "...you can rest more of a web page..."**** thanks”
“I actually love the phablets. Why carry around two devices when you can have one that combines them both really well. Especially now that they are coming out with full 1080p screen resolutions and high pixel density, the higher quality stops directed at tablets can start being developed for phablets as well. :-)”

“But my earPhone with DBI (direct brain interface) has potentially infinite graphics resolution and its display doesn't obstruct any part of your visual field (unless you want them to, like the navigation display). It's VoG (Voice of God) sound system is incredible, even listening to music at maximum virtual volume you can still understand someone whispering to you from across the room. (Actually even better than without the phone, if you've got selective voice augmentation on.) There are multiple interfaces, so if you're most comfortable with a tablet you can manipulate a virtual tablet with your virtual hands. I'm most comfortable with the "just think about what you want" interface.”
“Though, I will say that I do love both my 4.7 inch Optimus G and 5.5 inch Optimus G Pro that I got for the combined subsidized price of $70. Can't beat that price for 2 great large screen smartphones with awesome specs and functionality. Thus I say bring on the 6-inch screen devices, though at the higher prices I better be able to also make cellular phone calls on it! Lol”
“In glad to see that another fellow being had learned that life it too short to chase the latest and greatest tech gadget that's released as soon as it comes out. Hopefully you didn't wait too long in life make that decision for yourself.
Personally I'm letting the current tablet craze pass me by (at least until they can store more data and accomplish more robustly versatile tasks at a cheaper price), because right now I don't think buying a large screen phone without the phone functionality is worth the price of a nice slim laptop with the full features of a laptop.”
“Yeah, I had already previously looked into Tether-X and it doesn't work quite the same as FoxFi, so that app would be a no-go for me. Thanks for suggesting it though. Yeah, I still have my backup Galaxy S2 and FoxFi works great on it without having to go through all the hurdles that Tether-X puts you through, which still doesn't have the functionality of FoxFi. I do like the specs on the Lumia 1020, though I ultimately chose to stay with Android and just upgraded to both the Optimus G and Optimus G Pro.”
“Yes, it is fairly easy to bypass the Metro functionally of Windows 8, yet it's something a user would have to do an Internet search to figure out since it's not made easily apparent in the help section. And no, I honestly don't follow Apple much beyond the iPhone and iOS, since I feel most of their products are highly overpriced for no good reason.”
“Actually, I'm not arguing with you at all. I was just pointing out some things based on what you were saying. And yes, saying interface is probably a bit better verbiage than the generic "field of apps", but your elaboration is what really helped me to see your point...thanks! :) I'll probably agree with you that Windows Phone integrates the apps like email and popular social sites better than the others, since I haven't used it enough to compare it to that level. I'm also no the biggest fan of most popular social sites. Huffington Post is probably the only MAJOR social site I'm involved with since it's more geared around news. All the other social sites I frequent aren't super large yet and probably never will be. Yet, I can say that there are apps out there that help integrate email, calendar, tasks, and journal entries in Outlook for example very well for both Android and iOS. Honestly, I think all three platforms are great in there way, and all three will get better! :)”
“"Plenty of WP apps to tether your wi-fi devices to your phone. And they work just as well."
That's good to know for other future buyers of Windows Phone 8 products, because I do like the Nokia Lumia like of phones, and I've never been too big of a Nokia fan in the past back when they were considered the king of smartphone hardware. I was more of a Sony-Ericsson smartphone fan back then.
So what apps are you referring to? I'm quite curious, in case I decide to look into a Windows Phone 8 device the next time I'm on the prowl for a new device.”

“Tether-X, for example. That's the one I toyed with on a friend's Windows Phone. But I know there are others. Like I said, currently I use a Samsung GS3, but I'm considering switching to the Lumia 1020.”
“No problemo. The Lumia line of Windows Phone 8 are great too. A goof friend of mine has the 920 (which I did greatly consider getting at one point). He loves the camera on it, and says that it's a really great phone and easy to use and adapt to...he switched from an iPhone, if I'm not mistaken. Nokia just released the 1020 too, which has even better specs than the 920. Nice phones, though, you may have to be patient a little longer if Windows doesn't have particular apps you like to use yet (this was part of the reason I decided not to go with Lumia), though you can get the Lumia 920 for really cheap right now too.”

“It's nice to get information from people who actually have the phone they are talking about. I will check into your suggestions, thanks again! F&F for being so helpful!”
“No, not for the MOST PART...Windows Phone is no different than iOS or Android. They are all operating systems apps that allow other apps to be installed on them for COMMUNICATIONS purposes. What COMMUNICATION apps do you consider to be the "most used" that Windows Phone have that either iOS and/or Android does not?”
cleetus97 on Sep 4, 2013 at 11:06:06
“At the interface level, it is drastically different. Maybe I should have said the word interface, maybe I thought you would get that from my repeated use of calling the other two merely fields of apps.
At the core, sure, they are all just a phone/system that uses apps that are installed. Some apps are communications tools, apps such as those linking to email, linkedin, Facebook, twitter, IM, Text and so forth. The windows phone has developed probably the best interface that combines them in singular tiles that you can then control who all is in each one. Windows has made that first major move.
It really is very simple if you will allow yourself to see it that way. Once I started using the OS, I saw and experienced a very real difference.
There is really nothing more to argue about on this.”
“My friend, you are highly over simplifying the realities. The iOS system and Android system are still very young applications, and yet are both quite powerful. I'm not sure what you mean by "overall system" yet both operating systems are well integrated in their respective environments. And just like Windows, those OS's well improve and become even more integrated with time within their own ecosystems and between each other as they mature.”
cleetus97 on Sep 4, 2013 at 10:21:29
“It is simplified because it is that simple. The iPhone and the Android phone is still just a phone with a field of applications that you add. For the most part, Windows is too, but they recognized that and integrated the most used COMMUNICATION apps into very viable and highly usable ways. Great, maturity is coming. Windows is the one that took that step first. It is why they are growing. I took one look at it and there is no way I can go back. They have set the bar where iOS and Android must go. It will be very interesting to see what Apple shows next week, but I have a very real suspicion that it will be yet more tech upgrades to the phone while the actual workings of the OS and the user will still be merely a field of apps to choose from. ”
