Not sure. I do know we have a tool that reads the sensor. Not sure what else it does

aren't new sensors very expensive?

I know we do this at les schwab on state st, across from the golf course all the time. Can't speak for the other locations or stores. We carry a bunch of sensors as well.

So if I had some I could come in and you guys could program them? That location is only about a mile from my house. I actually used to work at the hardware store across the street and would drive our forklift over when you guys needed something moved or it needed a tire pumped up.

Depends but much cheaper (and way less hassle) in the long run than having 8 tires unmounted/mounted to swap sensors twice a year.

Good to hear, now I pray for spring.

Oh, and are you working tomorrow? Do you guys have any lug nuts lying around that are the kind you would use for spacers? They look like regular nuts with a taper on one end. If so I want to stop by and take a look at one if you guys don't mind.

I've been thinking of doing the same but I hate to give up the battery life of my RAZR MAXX. I might have to get an iPhone 5 for work (work provided) soon so it will be nice to make side by side comparisons for myself.

Well apple really can't screw anything up cuz they have what os an *improved version* of the prior platform. To whereas android systems change drastically over a wider spectrum of devices to reach a wider customer base so yes there are more issues, if apple screwed up majorily we'd know sooner. I sell them all and I can easily list goods and bads for both that an online tech review won't tell you. Ill rely off realworld customer interactions rather than a side by side comparison of specs.

Hahaha if anything Verizon is pushing that Samsung note monster of a phone. I'm just an iPhone guy and we don't get many calls about iPhones in tech support. I've had mine for over 3 yrs and have yet to have any trouble with it. It's been jailbroken the majority of that time as well. That way I can make the os changes I want on it

Really nice photo. Where is that? I haven't taken any good car photos in a while. Got tired of photographing my old car because I hadn't done anything to it in years. Looking forward to this spring when I can take my FXT out somewhere for some proper pics.

I hate you. lol

I really need to upgrade my old 5D and 40D. I have a MK1 24-70 2.8 and a MK1 70-200 2.8 IS if you want to give them a whirl but I suggest you save up for the MK2 versions of each if you are serious about getting some really nice lenses.

I want a fancy camera. That picture I took was with my iPhone 4. Using an app called photosynth. It's like 7 or 8 pictures thrown together.
