AT&T 4G LTE Network
AT&T's 4G LTE network allows for quicker access, smoother media streaming, and faster web experiences. LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile broadband speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Additionally, LTE technology offers a faster response time due to lower latency--the processing time it takes to move data through a network--vastly speeding download times for web pages as well as improving services such as mobile gaming and two-way video calling.
By the end of 2011, AT&T plans to launch its 4G LTE network in 15 major metropolitan areas, covering at least 70 million Americans. Coverage will continue to expand in the next few years and is planned to be largely complete by the end of 2013.
And when combined with 4G HSPA+ technology, AT&T is capable of delivering a quicker, more consistent mobile broadband experience than ever before. AT&T has deployed HSPA+ to virtually 100 percent of its mobile broadband network, which enables 4G speeds when combined with enhanced backhaul (via Ethernet or fiber). Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.
LTE = Long Term Evolution
Advanced wireless technology capable of increasing AT&T's already-fast network speeds. Now in select markets with deployment ongoing.
HSPA+ = High Speed Packet Access
Paired with enhanced backhaul--the accelerated pipeline between our network backbone and cell towers across the country--this technology boosts network performance.

Android Gingerbread Operating System
The HTC Vivid runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread)--the fastest version of Android available for smartphones yet. It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.
Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The Vivid also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.Google Integration

I came here from the cassandra and ajax pompeii page with the notes on pallas palus etymology [whimsy] because of the cof tau yod beth ktib note next to jud. 13:18. [I think] It's a way the masoretes had of notating a mistake. It means something like "it is written" and indicates that the form copied is known to be an error or to vary from some more authoritative form or something. The correct form was put in the margin or so. ((((This morning when I arrived the distinguished looking Negro male with poofy sideburns was here. He was playing a radio and I moved to the other side of the section. I feel self-conscious in working on this because they have put an older than student age female across from me who is shadowing me closely. Last night they had a female of about the same age and bearing who told me what I am working on is interesting but "no" anyway. As I began trying to put the thought together they started coughing at me, student age male Asian to my left. He just sneezed twice. They also set up a small din. I suppose the fact that the semester is over is inhibiting them although they maintained large dins all through finals week and there were even 4 or 5 coughing and mucus sucking gargoyles both male and female who shadowed and mimicked my movements in leaving at closing time. It was an early close. Anyway, they are now interfering with my search for the Jewish publication Hebrew English Bible in which I found a passage with both forms of a ktib word, so I decided to insert this parenthesis before I try to work around the sabotage. A male voice is shadowing me with sarcastic comments. OK. I found it and they worked another din. The hostile Lloyd Cole-like whom I wrote on several months ago walked past sticking his tongue out at me with an open mouth. A slender, older than [[he just returned thumbing a cell phone with a catbird smile. It's the one that made me name him "hostile". He coughed at me as he sat and another individual cruised me but I didn't look up and a young looking student age female Asian just cruised me chewing gum with open jaws and catbird eyes. She had a petite feminine form and a "pretty" face---they have mocked me with sarcastic affirmation many times of their understanding of my reason for putting quotation marks around the term "pretty"---[Oh, I remember. One of the cruisers was the head of the Mid-East library...but wait, it wasn't this recent individual but one before that] with acne scars on the cheek she had turned toward me. As I started this note a male voice started a loud heh heh heh cell phone conversation. I can't see him. I think he must be sitting...no he was sitting at a table to the right and behind a computer. He just got up and left taking his back pack with him.]] student age female who returned my glance with a flash of contempt to quick to properly characterize. I've forgotten most.)))) Here is an example of a ktib in the JPS Bible at Psalm 74-11 לָמָּה תָשִׁיב יָדְךָ, וִימִינֶךָ; מִקֶּרֶב חוקך (חֵיקְךָ) כַלֵּה. The words are the one in parenthesis [hai yod koof] which is the correct version and the one to its right, hai waw koof, the ktib. Here is the English version from the same Bible 10 How long, O God, shall the adversary reproach? Shall the enemy blaspheme Thy name for ever? 11 Why withdrawest Thou Thy hand, even Thy right hand? Draw it out of Thy bosom (hai waw koof) and consume them. (((((I'm having a hard time connecting up the parts of this thread and the black and whites are making it harder. I just went to check on my things which are over with the distinguished looking Negro male with the poofy salt and pepper sideburns and his radio and a student age male coughed at me twice. When I got back and began working again, a student age male shelver walked by me pushing his cart. He made a show of having to go around my table (It's placed in such a way that my chair makes a tight squeeze of the aisle.) and as he approached a book return, he sneezed twice and then sucked mucus at me. A few moments later, the older than student age female sitting across from me got up and asked me if I would watch her computer while she went somewhere. Actually, she is student age, "pretty" and looks like she has Asian blood. She had the manic air of most flash mobs as she jogged out of sight then jogged back and worked at a her computer briefly before jogging to a nearby copy machine and back then leaving. I forgot to notice if she jogged away or walked. About that time the hostile Lloyd Cole-like walked (I think he is like the Lloyd Cole-like bus driver, though and not a direct like.) passed and this time his lips were pursed. I recall he used to chew gum at me a lot and I think he might have been one who make a show of unwrapping a stick and putting it in his mouth with a flourish. Just after that, the student age male who coughed twice at me as I was checking on my things jogged behind me and then a f
Antioch, The Lost Ancient City, Christine Kondoleon. page 120 I had forgotten the meaning of the Greek word "tyche" 9luck, fortune) and as I looked it up, I remembered that at the time I was studying Greek, I used the term "got took" as a mnemonic device since the idea of luck made me think of gamblers and Las Vegas casinos.) 8. Tyche of Antioch, Second c. CE. Bronze, eyes overlaid with gold, height 6 3/4 inches (17.2 cm), Worcester Art Museum. Purchased with funds from the Stoddard Acquisition Fund, 1999.7 EX COLL.: POSSENBACHER, Published: Manchester 1994. (The Kent Vigos and the other gargoyle he shared a table with has gone and they have been replaced by two soldiers in fatigues. I think one is a female and the other a male. Someone called out something in a disparaging tone as I started this page but I can't remember what it was although I heard words. As I got to the bottom of the caption, the backward baseball cap male picked up a cell phone and said something to me in it. I think I may have imagined the words "free one". While I was working on the funerary scene a female walked by saying no to me and then again coming back. A student age female who may have been Bengali (The word came into my mind as I tried to characterize her ethnicity and race.) walked past and said something to me I didn't here. Otherwise it has been exceptionally quiet. I suppose they're getting set for a big assault they make as I get to the point of this thread. I decided to wait for the last bus so I could finish this pic. I hope Steven isn't the driver and they will let me ride home in peace. Yesterday the angery Negro male drove and his braking and accerating made a rough ride. There was a large number of gargoyles who rode all the way to Trax. I thought one was the son of the male janitor with bedroom eyes. He mouthed things at me and pulled a face I couldn't interpret. The train had 5 cars. The ski day before yesterday, they had a young middle age light skinned Negro female sit across from me (the day of the huge flash mob with two cars and a fake accident) She looked and was built a little like only smaller. She had chewing gum breath and chewed her gum at me all the way.) In both pose and drapery the Worcester statuette is very close to the Louvre example (cat. no. 6), and together with the Orontes from the Louvre (cat. no. 7) they suggest the replica series based on the popular Hellenistic model of the Tyche by Eurychides (Paus. 6.2.6). It is clear from markings on the base that the Orontes, now lost, was part of the original Worcester piece. In fact, it is the only known example in the series with its original base and traces where the Orontes River was attached and thus provides evidence for the practice of joining separately worked pieces depicting the goddess and the river god. (I think they just sabotaged me then called out a taunt in the distance as someone to my right clear their throat but I can't be sure. I corrected pieces and goddess and then went to the top of the page to edit down. When I got back I had to correct them again.) The Tyche's gold eyes also set her appart from the other bronze copies (about twenty-nine reproductions in bronze are documented). Although now broken, her right hand wold have held a sheaf of wheat. The fluid treatment of the parallel and criss-crossed folds of drapery, especially along the goddess's back, makes the Worcester version espeically fine. The outcropping of rock on which she sits is attached to its original bas, articulated by convex moldings. The Antiochene version was the model for many other city Tyches and seems to have been a Hellenistic invention that offered a local city god (Tyche) for the new cities founded in the Hellenestic East. The Tyche type is conflated with many different goddesses and attributes depending on the locale of its production. For example, in Rome she is fused with the Roman fertility goddess Fortuna and deemed to control not only individuals but also cities and events. At Dura she is conflated with the Syrian goddess Atargatis, a symbol of believes of both the City's Seleucid founders and the local Semitic cults. C.K. page 120 I wonder how many were made. I wonder what symbolic value they had in homes. It must have had something to do with matrona or patrona of the household and of the cosmos and of the collective consciousness or something like that. now I had some passages about fortresses, crowns and walls but I guess I erased them when I was doing the submarine archeology and got frustrated about the large number of tabs. They have sabotaged the way the search works. When I click an index heading it brings up a new page without my tabs and won't back button to the where the index and tabs are. cough cough rare and its awkward to work with that way. wiki has In ancient Greek city cults, Tyche (Τύχη, meaning "luck" in Greek, Roman equivalent: Fortuna) was the presiding tutelary deity that
