    I wonder if this is just the tip of the iceberg for electronic device OS and and sports gear exclusivity arrangements? Imagine if Nike started putting a chip in their shoes that communicates via blue tooth with iPhones only to run a whole host of various applications. Pedometer and workout type stuff comes to mind but GPS kind of covers that utility at least for speeds and distances.

    I actually really wonder why we still call these devices "phones. Most people only spend a very small fraction of the use actually talking on them these days.

    What's a good word for this?

    An awesome device! My phone has almost replaced my computer, even... I'm on my phone now, actually.

    We've been on a quest to acquire EVERY SINGLE Amazon Kindle on the planet. Mrs NoSwitch got a black and white 3G one when they first came out. Then, the next year she got a Fire when they first came out for the wifi utility. She bought her father a lite and has it on our account so he can read our books. Christmas the two kids got HD 8.5s and Mrs NoSwitch was instantly all jelly because theirs were bigger and faster. So, she bought one for herself and gave me the older Fire. I have all these options but still prefer a full sized keyboard. I like the way the dips of the keys feel under my fingers while typing. And, I hate to have to switch back and forth between screens to get different characters. I'm taking the son on a ski trip this weekend and I'm really waffling on whether to bring a notebook, the Kindle Fire, or just the new Nokia Windows Phone. I can't think of anything needs wise for the weekend that I couldn't do on the phone. Heads op other mods. If I only take the phone ir Kindle I won't be doing any moderation stuff.

    She still uses the very first black and white one in bright sun and places where there is no wifi.

    Yesterday they began accepting open submission through video footage sent to a designated batb 7 email. I may have a chance yet. I'll try to film one and show you guys the aftermath

    Good luck, haha I still can't do that switch front foot impossible you did in our game of skate. I guess I was right when I predicted I won't land that in the next year.

    The Nike SB S.K.A.T.E option is retarded. I just lost a game because I haven't matched WITHIN 4 HOURS

    If your friend got tired of filming you doing flat ground tricks im guessing it took you a few too many trys to land your tricks in which case you would get smashed against the Pro's anyway.... Jus sayin

    Yea, this isnt about the coolest tricks you can do, its about how consistent you can do hard tricks.
    Above the lakes, above the vales,
    The mountains and the woods, the clouds, the seas,
    Beyond the sun, beyond the ether,
    Beyond the confines of the starry spheres,
    My soul, you move with ease

    The Mike Mo in slo-mo vid they just put up is unreal. He makes those late flips look smooth and effortless. Those aren't even close in my repertoire.

    Yeah, he's repping my homestate so I'm hoping he does well. That was an intense game. There really weren't any tricks in there that were outside of my bag, but I'll be damned if I could be confident enough with them to try em in a game of skate. I wish I could get that level of consistency.

    Would be nice if they released a match up daily. The waiting sucks.

    At first I was like "Cole is off his game" then he came back, then Chann came back swinging, too. It was definitely good.

    The Chann Vs. Cole match was like the most stressful game of skate ever hahaha

    shoutout to Cody Whitt for respresenting shitty ol' NC ! For a state with minimal skateboarding, we've had some heavy hitters come out of here (Josiah Gatlyn,Justin Brock, Marc Johnson, Chet Childress, Dan Murphy, Mitch Triplett, Chris Cole is originally from NC, etc). I'm excited to see how he does!

    As far as "Oh the berrics is getting stupid and nike is stupid and how dare they try to pay their bills" attitude goes, shut up. Nike blows, anyone who respects skateboarding acknowledges that. but if Nike is the one fronting the money for them to do this thing, quit your bitching. Some of the joes aren't even from North America. This segment of the site costs a LOT.
