Site Maintenance, and Where’s Kellex?

The site will be undergoing some routine maintenance over the next two days. What does this mean to you? Well we may not have as much coverage as we would like. Rest assured, once this is complete we will be back better than ever. We will still try however to  get any major updates posted for you.

On a side note, I think i saw a bunch of people carrying I*hones abduct Kellex early this morning. No one has seen or heard from him since. Therefore readers if you think you have spotted Kellex, please chime in with a location and who he was with throughout the day. I’ll start.

Kellex last seen at Portland Starbucks being carted off by an angry mob of I*hone users.

  • Rachel

    Maybe MrPicolas IS Kellex 😉

  • Rachel

    Maybe hes hiding for a reason. 🙂 hehe

  • Chris Nimon

    Why would he switch to a 3rd place operating system that hasn't had anything “revolutionary” since the day after it first launched. That would be like trading in your 72 inch 1080p flatscreen for an old 12inch black and white TV with rabbit ears. ios looks similar to Androids app drawer only its not even as good as that. I understand your bitter, I would be to if I were you but its not to late to sign on to one of the several class action lawsuits right now.

    maybe he made the smart decision and left android for iOS!

    Do you remember the Mythbustaz episode about the cell phone not catching fire while pumping gas? Well, Kellex was testing an i#hone while pumping gas. The gas fumes caused the two antennas to “connect” during a call. This made the phone drop a call, igniting the fumes, then BOOM.

  • Chris Nimon

    Still no word from Kellex? hope it wasn't some kind of family emergency.

  • Chris Nimon

    THIS JUST IN. Malibu police have just found the bodies of a tall skinny blond woman and a man floating in a pool. The woman has been identified as Barbie Millicent Roberts. The man has not yet been identified as they have only been able to see his face in a reflection from the bottom of the pool. The owner of the house, Ken Carson, told police he had no idea what happened. He was last seen fleeing towards Tijuana with a male friend in a pink Jeep.

  • Chris Nimon

    I found him in at a “Love In” in the Hight Ashbury district. He sent me a link from his Enroute app. When I got there he said “thank you for coming Mr. Fox” and began to tell me why he was wearing assless chaps and a ball gag and had puke all over him. Then he showed me the dead Taiwanese shemale. He mumbled something, im not sure what it was, but it sounded like “How the hell does Mario get all those mushrooms and not throw up”? Then he grabbed an 18 inch jelly dildo and a chocolate donut and ran from the house screaming “Wheres that tato? Im never gonna forgive hime for this”

  • Evermour

    kso, im on my incredible and everything looks different. I like it.(:

  • Martis76

    i have no new update of android 2.2. and i have the incredible so what's the deal

  • Very nice “maintenance”! The mobile site is WAY more finger-friendly and easier to use. Thank you! 🙂

    • However, a quick edit to the stylesheet to lessen line-spacing would be even more welcome. 😉

    Holy poop balls, my comment actually went thru! Nice, i can post from my droid again…finally! Thanx for fixin that!

  • Jason w.s.

    Where oh where could kellex have gone, where oh where could he be…

  • Neo1738

    1) i find it funny that the site maintenance is the main part of this article, and Kellex disappearing is a “side note”. Mr Picolas sounds shadier and shadier.

    2) Think if we shipped SJ a Droid X he would let kellex go b/c he would be to amazed at a phone that actually works?

    3) I really would love to ship him a Droid X and see his expression.

    Oh, and for the record, please refer to the iBone with a lower case “i”. We don't want to give the tutty-fruitty more importance than they deserve nor would you want Steve (hand)Jobs bringing a lawsuit on you for defacing his brand name. 🙂

  • I saw somebody who needed a manicure and was yelling at all the I*hone carring people in my office, THAT MUST HAVE BEEN HIM. dang it I could have got his autograph too 🙁

    INT. APPLE HEADQUARTERS – MAIN HALLWAY

    Kellex is led down a low-ceilinged hallway by a squad
    of armored, albeit admittedly meterosexual, iTroopers. His hands are bound and he is
    brutally shoved when he is unable to keep up with the briskly
    marching soldiers. They stop in a smoky hallway as Darth Jobs
    emerges from the shadows. The sinister Dark Lord stares hard
    at the frail young innovator, but Kellex stands tall, defiant.

    KELLEX
    Lord Jobs, I should have known.
    Only you could be so bold. The
    members of Droid-Life will not sit for
    this, when they hear you've attacked
    a …

    JOBS
    Don't play games with me, Your
    'Droidness.' Several wireless
    transmissions were beamed to your phone
    by Open Source Spies. I want to know
    what happened to the plans they sent
    you.

    KELLEX
    I don't know what you're talking
    about. I am a member of an online community
    whose sole aim is to guide and teach…

    JOBS (yelling)
    You're a part of the Open Source Alliance…
    and a traitor. Take him away!

    Kellex is marched away down the hallway towards an Apple Holding Cell.

    END SCENE.

    Imagining Darth Jobs failing to ignite his iSaber because he is left-handed also makes me giggle.

    • Joesred

      Please do not tell me we have to wait until 9/30/2010 for R2D2 Droid to break Kellex out.
      Will Fed-Ex deliver to the A**ple holding cell?

  • Justin

    This is what happens when you make a dent in the apple bank account.. you become a missing person.

    Apple is like a mob family.

    Mobs & Jobs

  • Don't worry. If we cannot find him, eventually the iPunks will try to hold him the wrong way and lose hold on him lthe same way they lose their reception on their lame phones. He'll make his escape before any of them admit that there's a problem. LOL!

  • venomX0125

    he's with elvis, tupac, and bigfoot there planning a break in at steve jobs house to plant porn all over the place so steve jobs can know what a woman actually looks like… lol

  • Surfgirl757

    Hey guys I think Mr.P May have hidden Kellex in the basement and Taken over Droid -Life . Isn't it obvious who would have left that guy in charge. lol

    • Mrpicolas

      shhh…..

      • Joesred

        OH NO!!!! I expanded Mrpicolas' profile…look close..you will see he is wearing…
        A BLACK TURTLENECK!!!!!!!!
        Conspiracy! I got lulled by the
        http://www.droid-life.com/2010/08/17/ask-dr-roo
        yesterday. It was just to pacify us. Mrpicolas wanted us to believe Kellex was at the Adobe Android Summit.
        What have you done Mrpicolas….if that is really who you are.

        Has there been a complete take over of Droid-Life?
        Is anyone who they really say they are?

        I am so scared!!!

  • Legoturtle92

    The way you described Kellexs last whereabouts reminded me of that Droid X scavenger hunt.

    • Joesred

      If we find him…do we get a Droid WE with gingerbread?

      • Legoturtle92

        I wish

  • blackcatroad

    • Justin

      someone said that below and that he is “unknown location”

  • Angry mob of i*hone users? Give him 6 hours and he'll convert them all!

    • eddieonofre

      6 hours??? maybe if is steve jobs….
      just showing them a Droid will converte them
      there will be
      USB tether… wowww
      Real keyboard… WOWWWW
      I can get app from the internet (with out jailbreaking)…. wowwwwwwww
      I can change the Homescreen and use widgets…. wowwwwwwwww
      wait what are those real folders???…. wooowwwwww
      and then the best… you can hold it with your bare hands……
      and pufffff they will be converted and never go back

    • Evermour

      More like 30secs. All he has to do is whip out his phone.

      • lakerzz

        Im so glad you said “phone”…lol

  • Justin

    I REALLY saw kellex.
    He was at his real job.

    If you want to see him for yourself, he works at the apple store in portland.

    • Ooooh nooooo.

    • Can it Be?

      I heard he was the one that invented i*hone 4 antenna.

      • Justin

        Saboteur or genius?

        • pure genius, kellex work some magic and make apple fall…i'm on my way

  • briderx

    Kellex stayed in today, watching Porn on his Droid X.

    • Joesred

      good thing he can hold the phone anyway he needs to with one hand

  • Lets just hope someone is latitude friends with him and his droid X hasn't been quarentined!

    • briderx

      I am Latitude friends with him.. Oddly enough, I got an “Unknown Location” right now.. Seems fitting.

      • Justin

        If he was indeed taken by ifreaks, that would explain his loss of reception in his phone.

  • Maizekid

    Everyone one calm down i found him. He was at the police station wearing a cop hat eating an ice cream cone.

  • so Kellex is missing as well as my Droid update…hmm….suspicious! I just got the phone, it was a replacement from dropping my other one too much (so glad I got insurance)…which was rooted. I'm not sure what's going to happen once they become aware of my previous operations so I haven't rooted this one yet but boy I sure do miss it!

  • Mrpicolas

    Major update… Kellex last seen on Somali pirate ship heading to the BP oil rig in the gulf.

  • Ace Z.

    No No No guys! Kellex was first kidnapped by the i*hone fanboys and then dum dada dum…R2-D2 came to his rescue and in a E.T. moment, Kellex rode his bike with R2 to another Galactic world far far away in our blackhole of a universe to stop the Evil Empire (Apple and Steve Jobs). Now, Kellex will be back on September 30th with R2-D2 at your local Verizon store. Some new DROID will come out that day, a hybrid type, with Kellex's eye boot animation. Trust me, I have reliable sources.

  • Dito_Muertez

    • Droidzilla

      Jobs: How do they multitask and use widgets? Tell me!

      Kellex: It's open source, man! Please let me go home!

      • HAhahahah

      • poeddroiduser

        Kellex: How many black turtlenecks DO you own?
        Jobs: (speechless)

        • Could it BE?

          Shamefully…..SJ looks down at his black torso covering and mumbles. Kellex assures SJ that it is ok to answer…their is no more possible shame than that of I*hone 4 situation. SJ looks at Kellex eyes filled with tears ans admits….”I only have this one black turtleneck.” SJ shuffles his feet and wiping tears onto his sleeve. ” I heard a voice coming through my earbuds of my I*od telling me that if I take my sweater off…even to shower that information will come out on a website with and big red digital eye and a lot of pink on it to tell the world the secret of A**le. I tested this and I pulled one arm out of my sleeve to put deodorant on… and next thing I knew…the event occurred.” SJ continues,” I was alerted and shown this site of which I was warned. YOU, Kellex and your minions…you have alerted the world on this company has overpriced, iconic, status symbol items. You had far too much information to quickly of the i*hone 4 epic design flaw. A**le did not have enough time to get the subliminal messages out to our legion.”
          If I can only take this damn sweater off and shower, swim, and dare I say it….make love to a woman, then I could know how it feels to be a man again. Maybe even wear….pastels. This is why I have you Kellex…in my lair. If it break the communication of the fortold website….I shall…take this prison off of my torso.

          With this Kellex….reaching in his backpack of pulls out …..

          a pink Droid-Life polo….

          Kellex says…”Jobs…take off your rank, turtleneck. Wash….and put on this shirt. Toss your I*hone to the pavement and revel in the glee of it shattering. I will show you the ways of Droid. You will know the joy of holding your phone any way you want. Your know the prison of wearing the black turtleneck. Your phone should not have to wear one to function either. “

          Jobs looks at Kellex with much glee. SJ asks….”and the …. making love to a woman without my turtleneck?

          Kellex assures SJ if he carried a Droid device….especially the upcoming R2D2 version…..he will have women throwing themselves at him. He will no longer have to use any date rape drug. Women want to mate with men that are confident enough in their manhood that they will wear a pink shirt and sport the R2D2.

  • 1bad69z28

    Sitting hee in the office, my window overlooks the SFO Airport and highway 101, I see a large convoy of Silver Suv's w/ the Apple Logo heading south on 101. CBS 5 News just reported a strange possible kiddnapping of a Droid Blogger at SFO Airport, pushed into one of the SUV's.and a unidentified man (probably Tim A Tato), was being transported to UCSF hospital was hit with a Taser gun. Eyewitness accounts said the unidentified man was seen screaming “Don't tass me Bro, Don't Tass me” Then a loud scream and a “Run Kellex, Run” but 5 men in black suits with Apple security badges grabbed the other gentlemen (probably Kellex) and threw him into the lead Silver SUV. Police are interviewing the tassed man (probaly Tim A Tato) and he is uttering something about notifying “Techdeft” and “Mr. Picolas”. Has anyone heard from these two LMAO Stay tuned for more lol

  • No posts today and tomorrow!!! I'm going on a refresh strike!!

    No way, no how. Everyone knows that i*hone users' metrosexual arms are far too weak to carry someone off, and they can't move very quickly with their super tight jeans, either.

    I'm thinking Droid conspiracy. Kellex has been taken off to the collective for assimilation. And maybe some pie.

    • Punch & pie? I'm there.

      • Eric

        Did someone say punch & pie?

    The last time I saw Kellex was this morning in my bed with me… completely naked. He woke up and ran away. His clothes are still on my floor.

  • Leobautista 91

    off topic, im rooted running saphire 1.0.0… and i had my droid on the pc, then disconnected and rebooted my phone since it was acting funny afterwards ,y phone doesnt run it just stays in the motorola screen and stays there foever.. any help'''

    • JosueD

      Try going into recovery, By holding X while rebooting your phone, In recovery mode you may go back to a previous nandroid backup, Or you may install your Rom again if its still in the SD Card.

      [JD]

      • leobautista91

        i tried that, but nothing… it doesnt go into recovery. 🙁

        • JosueD

          Okay, Your gonna have to flash the recovery back into it using RSD Lite

          [JD]

          • Leobautista 91

            im sorry im kinda new at this, and to be honest this was my first comment ever.. but how would i use the RSD Lite?

          • JosueD

            Hey, I wanted to find something on Droid-Life to help you out, So i found this: http://www.droid-life.com/2010/05/06/guide-to-r… Its a guide to root android, But step 1 explains how to get SPRecovery installed on the phone using RSD lite, After you follow step 1 which installs SPRecovery you can boot into recovery mode, Form their you may restore you phone if you have a nandroid backup, Or you can click install and choose saphire 1.0 which should still be in you SD card.

            [JD]

          • Leobautista 91

            thanks, josue… but as much as i want to do this i dont have a computer or internet at home sucks for me… im using the achool internet right now and stupid school dont let me download anything from the web and have my phone out…like i said “sucks for me” lol

          • Np, Umm wow that really sucks, I guess you can go to a friends house that owns a computer…. Just out of curiosity have you tried removing the battery for a few secounds then putting it back in and then turning on the phone again?

            [JD]

          • Leobautista 91

            yeah i have and made a rep in verizon to see it but nada. they want to send me a new droid but since im rooted idk what will happen to me

          • Maybe they wont notice, Lol, Seriously, Get the new Droid!!

            [JD]

          • Leobautista 91

            ok i will do that xD i hope everything runs good 🙂

    • Anonymous

      This happened to me two days ago on the same ROM, i did a 30 sec battery pull, then when the phone booted back up, i had to go into Rom Manager, flashed Clockwork Recovery, THEN flashed SPrecovery, THEN went back and flashed CMrecovovery again. Only then was i able to boot into recovery and restore my backup.

  • lakerzz

  • DiGz76

    Off subject here, but I have a question if anyone can help.
    I am rooted, and I am recieving the message that the update is available. I thought being rooted stopped this message from coming in. I clear it off my notifications, but it always comes right back. I don't want to install it, because I will loose root access if I do right? But I don't want this stupid message on my phone at all times. Any suggestions from anyone?

    • JosueD

      I suggest making a nandroid backup, And then accepting the update, Your costume recover should block it!

      [JD]

      • DiGz76

        If I do that is there a chance that after installing the update that I won't be able to restore a backup since I will loose root access?

        • JosueD

          Yes their is, But there's always a way of gaining root access, And I'm guessing its a risk you'll have to take.

          [JD]

          • DiGz76

            Thanks, I will try it when I get home tonight.
            In the meantime I'm open to other suggestions if anyone else has 1.

          • Dito_Muertez

            if you have a custom recovery (cmrecovery, sprecovery) you can accept the update and it won't actually install. It'll try, but your recovery won't let it. Then it'll reboot, you'll still be where you were, and no more notifications.

          • DiGz76

            Worked just like you said it would. Thanks a lot!

          • JosueD

            So you may be completely sure, Here on this link were your question was recently answered in a Droid-Life question and answer session: http://www.droid-life.com/2010/08/16/a-froyo-fo
