For those who care for an extra measure of security with your Note II, check out the modification I made to the Starbucks 2013 planner:
The upper portion of the planner can still be used.
For those with the Starbucks 2012 wooden covers, this works much compact, ideal for hand carrying concealment and has that elastic rope to secure it closed. No one expects your unit to be in the planner.
You will need to have the Note II in discreet mode (vibration alert) and at least a bluetooth earset to control music and answer calls to be effective. If you want to read incoming SMS, there are smart watches that work with the Note II like Sony's Smartwatch and LiveView. There are apps that you can pre-program messages as responses.
It's also a good idea if you have a secondary phone (like an iPhone, hehe)for those who would have the likely chance of being held up to throw away doubts of the would-be-robber. I just hate the thought of a valuable device like the Note II just taken away by a stranger. In all cases, any gadget is not worth dying for. Keep safe, everyone.

Anonymous, 31 Jan 2013Already installed the 99mb update and now there's one now at 70 and something megabyte. Both ... moreSorry for autocorrect error. STABILITY updates. Been testing a while now and seems like ui performance is back to 4.1.1 level, which means lag free. Need to use it a lot more before i can say for sure. Browsing smoothness and performance is probably better now but need more testing here as well.
