Motorola Droid :: Chase Real Cash Debit Card Commercial
Jul 26, 2010
I just saw a commercial for the Chase Real Cash Debit Card and in the scene where the guy is standing at the counter and his phone rings, he pulls out a MotoDroid! Just thought I'd share this. I think that it's cool that we are finally seeing Android phones in other commercials. I still haven't seen one in a TV show or movie yet, but I'm sure it's only time before I do. I tried finding the commercial with google, but I guess it's just too new of a commercial to be on the internet yet.
I was wondering wether or not there is a website out there that gives cash for a broken Droid. I tried searching for days, but no answer.The hardware works fine, however the touchscreen does not respond.
As we know, Verizon dropped the wireless part of their name and they have adopted this "Rule the Air" thing. I saw a commercial earlier and I wanted to know the phone they were showing in the commercial was it a Droid X? Has anyone seen the commercial? I think it was a Droid x because the electronics around the street were becoming animated and moving around and plus the phone in the person's hand looked way to big to be any of verizons other current phones. Idk lol maybe i am just anxious for the X
Have just tried to purchase my first paid app on the market and i keep getting a server error. I think this is because I'm trying to use a debit card. (Lloyds tsb)There are lots of stories about paypal coming to the android market but as far as I can tell it hasn't.PayPal payments coming to the Android Market | robert-nelson | Androinica. Short of getting a new card is there anyway I can get paid apps? Dissapointingly you don't even seem to be able to download them on the computer.
Trip this weekend to a competition my son was involved in...we had to drive about 150 miles to another city, navigate between four different locations while up there, and then get back home the next day. The previous year when we'd gone to this event we had gotten lost twice and actually missed being able to watch most of one event we were so late. So the pressure was huge to avoid a similar situation this year.I set up nav shortcuts on one of my home pages to each of the four locations in the other town the night before. So in the morning we pulled out of the garage, I tapped the icon for the first destination and off we went, faultlessly directed to our hotel.
On the way there, my wife says "I'd really like to hear some music, do you have any Elton John?" (So sue her, she's a child of the 70's. ) "Nope," says I "but I think I know where we can find some." So I tell her how to fire up Slacker on the Droid and she enters "Elton John" and a few seconds later she is rocking to the sound of "Crocodile Rock" and various other artists she likes.Nav interrupted Elton et al when necessary to provide directions.Used the shortcuts the rest of the weekend to move between the four locations w/out fault. Looked up traffic a few times to decide whether to bail on a route or not.No screams of "What street do I turn on, what street!?!" from me, and no wails of "I can't tell, I can't tell - Oh the humanity!!!" from my wife. Pure wedded bliss maintained, with Slacker providing the 70's soundtrack for the our weekend montage.
I am really getting sick of the short battery on my Incredible.As much as I hate the physical buttons on the X,I'm still contemplating moving to the X from the Dinc.I still have about 10 days to decide and I was hoping you guys might be willing to share your use of the phone and how long it is lasting. Yesterday I surfed for about an hour, Pandora for an hour, 20 minutes of phone calls, 5-10 text messages and emails (short ones), and about a dozen photos taken at the lowest res the camera offers (keep 'em small).I played Jewels about an hour total.No GPS, No Wifi for the day.I don't do twitter, facebook, etc. and don't have any apps running that are drains like live wallpapers and other "monitoring" software.I started at about 7:30 and the phone shut off around 6:40 or so -- about 11 hours.This is with the "bump charge" so I started with a completely full battery.
I have 2.1 rooted. real hdmi. i can see the hdmi page on my tv, but when i hit the home menu (on my X) to get to an app, my home screen flashes on my tv then closes. and i get no connection. ive watched youtube vids and read the hdmi page. ive tried dock/car/no dock. with the same result...
Here's my issue: Came from a windows mobile phone. However, one area winmo is obviously good at is exchange support. Here's what I mean: I regularly receive and forward large attachments (PDFS - usually 10 megs or so), and the winmo phone made it easy to do so when out of the office. I'd just hit forward and away it would go. The phone would tell the exchange server to forward the mail, and it was done. The phone never actually downloaded any attachments to forward, unless of course I wanted to download it for viewing.
I've found this phone instead of just telling the exchange server to forward the message actually has to download the attachment, then resend the attachment. This is stupidity in it's fullest when working with a 10 meg attachment. Instead of taking a split second to forward something it'll take minutes to download, then minutes to upload, and obviously shorten battery life considerably. So my question is - am I missing settings, or is the installed mail application not able to do so - and are there any android mail applications that will forward attachments off an exchange server without actually downloading the attachment first?
How does either the sprint or verizon wifi hotspot option compare to a real broadband connection? I'm assuming the speeds would be poorer but I want to hear from a personal account first. If the 3g performance is exceptional i may just drop my comcast cable modem given the droid x can support up to 8 wireless devices.
I just installed the new Chase Banking app from the Market. it's really well done, letting you check balances, pay bills, and yes, make deposits by taking a picture of your check. I haven't tried that feature yet, but it looks easy enough.
You can fill out a form to send an e-mail to Chase and request they make an Android application like their iPhone one. I did and they are going to forward that to the request department. I also found out they are making a BlackBerry application.Who uses BlackBerries still? Android is where its at. I have a feeling if enough people request it we might get it done!
I just emailed them early this morning (middle of the night) and received a message rather promptly. In the effort to provide better service to our existing customers, Chase's product and service development team is currently working on a similar application of our iPhone Quick Deposit for Android phones. Android Application is available in mid November 2010. Chase Android application will be available for download and will have functionally consistent with Chase iPhone application. Android app will have Quick Deposit functionality and eligibility that will mirror iPhone Quick Deposit."
I'm sure this isn't news to any of you veterans, but this is my first android device so please bare with me. I'm using the facebook app and have noticed that neither the app itself or the widget show the actual facebook live feed or provide a way to access it....
Of course my next thought was "well what if I just use the facebook page in a browser window". Turns out that's not as simple as I thought! Apparently facebook not only has a mobile page, it also has a "touch" page that it likes to route you to. Neither the mobile or the touch facebook pages have a way to access the live feed either....
I have some things that I would love to have but, can't afford at the moment (new computer/nexus one in particular)I am wondering if anyone out there fixes computers either as a primary or secondary job. This week I worked like 2 days at my "regular job" and I was thinking about charging a flat rate of 50$ per comp + whatever parts are needed. There are some ups and downs to this.. For one I make 50$ profit no matter how long it takes... the downside is.. I possibly only make no matter how long it takes.The city I live in does have a best buy and a place called "ram computers" which fixes them..I am wondering if this would be worth it.. if i got customers and things panned out.. 30 computers would be enough for a nexus one and the computer i want to build.if I get caught doing it without reporting it, then I could be fined (unless i'm mistaken) by the IRS.. which would be pretty hefty.And it also raises the question is it worth it if I fix a computer, the customer messes it up and wants me to fix it again thinking I did something wrong..If anyone has any experience with this kind of stuff.
