Wow, even a redhead? Nice! Guess that's settled, then.

Looking forward to your full ComicCon coverage, including the obligatory, 5-minute super cut of all those, 'So, what do you think about the Jon Snow plotline?' questions edited to feature the enervated panelists' eye-rollin reactions. :-)

My Favorite April 1st Gags for 2015
#1: Smartbox™ by Inbox

EDIT: Not available to Google Apps customers.

Combining all the fun and convenience of modern email with the simple, down-to-earth joys of a traditional mailbox...that's Smartbox.

Smartbox is currently in field trial—stuck in the ground, in a field—for Inbox by Gmail customers. If you’re not yet using Inbox, simply email inbox@google.com anytime before April 2 to be invited, and to reserve your spot on the Smartbox waitlist.

My Favorite April 1st Gags for 2015
#2: Le Selfie Stick à la My Moto

For those with discriminating tastes: it's the selfie stick reimagined as artisanal delight, redolent of bespoke, Old World craftsmanship and, of course, 'premium materials'.

Why settle for less? Our motto: "A selfie is only as good as its stick."

A fair review as always, Steve! Despite a few quirks (16GB or 64GB, only; too-clever approach to exterior styling), the Note Pro is a worthy entry in this size-range; amazing how far Xiaomi have come from their days as iPhone cloners. Especially good to see an expanding HW lineup that (finally) includes top-line Qualcomm chipsets --experimenting with the tricky SD 810, here. Very much looking forward to Xiaomi's latest kit, this fall!

Steve, good to learn that you've deprecated that hoary 'hand's-breadth' test for something more like, well, good ol' pragmatism. Bravo!

I, for one, welcome you into the generous, roomy embrace of our plus-sized smartphone overlords. Feel free to stretch out and relax. ;-)

An experiment shows "spooky action at a distance," in which a particle is in two places at once until it gets measured, causing the particle to take on a definite position, in a phenomenon that Einstein thought was crazy.

I've stayed in a lot of budget motels over the years, so I know the difference between this kind of place and one costing twice as much. A night's stay at the Front Royal Quality Inn far exceeded my expectations. The room ('non-smoking') was large, clean and smelled good. It also had excellent amenities -- again, relative to this price range -- and a large comfortable bed. Yes, the carpet shows some wear. Yes, it's likely a 50 year-old location. And yes, their low-cost attempts to spruce it up (textured walls, 'modern' furnishings) would not impress my interior decorator. That said, I had zero complaints and would happily recommend this motel to anyone looking to save a few bucks and/or miles. Well worth the price.

Good espresso based coffee drinks, plus some interesting dessert items. The owner and his brother are nice guys and make your stay so pleasant as possible...given the caveat that this store is located in what may be the busiest part of the entire mall complex. This makes it tricky (if not impossible) to enjoy your break.

My relationship with this Verizon Wireless location (the only nearby VZW corporate store) is...complicated. As phone stores go, this one is among the better looking -- the layout is reasonably attractive, with lots of open space and at least a dozen working devices on display to keep you occupied. And staying occupied is important since the typical wait for a sales rep is 15 - 30 minutes. In fact, you could be waiting even longer unless you're smart enough to figure out that you must 'register' upon arrival. This is done via self-serve kiosk and no, you'll find no signage to inform you of this fact. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this shop is obviously, plainly 'worse' than any other Verizon store. We've all learned to expect pretty much the same treatment wherever we see that big red logo. But something about being forced to wait for it really gets under my skin. You've been warned.
