Bought a Nexus 9 on eBay and keyboard for $250. It's unlocked and rooted. I want it locked and unrooted. Going through ADB i get device unauthorized, but i checked USB debugging and gave it permission. Also, "$ADB_VENDOR_KEYS not set". Why do i still get device unauthorized? All Google research results say to check "USB debugging" in Developer options but it already is checked. +Jerry Hildenbrand +Phil Nickinson +Droid Life +Koushik Dutta, please I need help!

I have mixed emotions about this phone. Let's see what the +OnePlus 2 has to offer shall we?
Let's be honest up front. I don't really have high hopes for this phone. The release itself was meh, and the hardware choices are limited. They say "Never Settle" but there are so many compromises with the OnePlus 2. Let's ge...

The unboxing of a Huawei Watch! I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
Huawei took it's time to enter the Android Wear market, and after seeing it, the wait was probably worth it. Based on looks alone, this thing is a beauty. Of course, there is more than meets the eye with every Android Wear ac...

Moto X (Previous Gen)  - 
My Moto X 1 and my wife's both updated to Lollipop on Verizon and ever sense the screen goes blank and has to be restarted or Moto Voice chirps unexpectedly, without wake up phrase. Anyone else having these issues?

Got a brand new Droid Turbo 2 from +Motorola Mobility​ yesterday. Question. Is it supposed to make a crackling noise when you press on the screen near the home button? Is that part of the ShatterShield technology?

The Moto X Pure Edition has really grown up over the years. Let's unbox this big boy to get started with our full review.
Motorola announced the next in line in their Moto X line earlier this year in August. But they didn't actually released for a few weeks later. I wasn't able to get a review unit from Motorola, so the next best thing is to buy...

Reviews and Advice for Everyday People from an Everyday Tech Geek
Hi! I'm Adam. Also known as "BaldyPal". A friend of mine helped with that nickname when trying to find my first URL. It just fits me best for two reasons. I'm a friendly bald guy and it's somewhat of an acrostic using the first two letters in each of my families name and scrambling them. I highly enjoy reviewing mobile tech and sharing those reviews on The Android Anthem (my second URL). But I also love playing golf and hanging with the family. My first smart device was a Motorola Droid X. That's when I fell in love with smart gadgets. I currently run with a Motorola Moto X (1st Gen).

Cedar Ridge Church

Welcome to Cedar Ridge Church mobile where you can enjoy the enlightening sermons of Pastor Nathan Galloway

I've attended Cascade with my family for 6 years now. The messages from Pastor Bill are spoken with truth and from the heart. I pleasantly enjoy this church and volunteering in multiple ministries. My children love it too. They learn about God and Jesus and are able to retain it from the way it's taught here. I'm so glad we've been able to find a church that focuses on God more than it does anything else.
