I am in washington and get some lag and pixelation but works ok. I was at a convention that nvidia had a booth at and they were showing off the shield and i was talking to the guy there. this is the direction they want to go for the future, basically they want to be able to offer a service where you can play any game on any device. He said they are going to continue to use the shield to test out different approaches and see what works and what doesn't. So I thought that was pretty cool.
Thanks for all the devs help and hard work, you guys rock! After all what would I do all day at work if I didn't have my phone to flash a new rom on...
