Need help with MotoX Android dialer app

I just recently got the MotoX and was excited to get access to the stock Android apps, including the dialer. But now I am very disappointed because the dialer seems devoid of critical features. It might be that I am just not understanding how to use it, but I cannot seem to be able to go into my call history and click on a call and add it as a contact. This was possible in the iPhone and even the Samsung dialer provided this basic feature. Why is this not possible from stock Android?

Fx10 was nearly 30 versions ago. I assume it means something else, but I haven't been following Firefox's development too close lately. it's odd they'd make it so confusing.

If you wonder why Google Maps comes up with bogus results

It's because they don't listen to their customers. I reported a Penske Truck Rental location that Penske closed down. Penske told me this location no longer exists. This is the reply I got from Google.

If you're having a question about one of our truck rental locations you can view them all here: http://www.pensketruckrental.com/locations/ We provide Google with our information regularly. But, it's definitely not a perfect system. If you want to report something to us we can look into it. Please email any details to blog@penske.com and we'll have our location team look into it. Thanks!

Here's a suggestion for +Google Drive , when I save a document from GMail into Google drive, it just disappears never to be found again, getting lost in my files. Please make it appear in the "Recent" list. The fact that it doesn't show up in my "recents" list is a bug.

Try out one of the best new age bullshit generator!

I had such a good laugh when I tried this out. A computer algorithm will generate spiritual quantum babble to your heart's content. And the sad truth is that you could find all sorts of gullible people that would bite the hook. 
New Age Bullshit Generator. Namaste. Do you want to sell a New Age product and/or service? Tired of coming up with meaningless copy for your starry-eyed customers? Want to join the ranks of bestselling self-help authors? We can help. Just click and the truth will manifest ...

Hi and good to see you again online.

Tried to load cyanogenmod onto my Samsung Galaxy S3 using the Mac OSX installer. I can't get past the "we couldn't talk to your device" message even though on the phone it already had the cyanogenmod logo and warned not to turn off the device. Is Galaxy S3 AT&T an unsupported device? Installing cyanogenmod seems insanely difficult.

Your logs aren't making it to us, which means you have a connectivity issue to us. Leave your office, home or work that you are connecting from, and get to a different internet connection and try again please.

I am finally seeing the light with Android. Now that I've used the MotoX, I see that all the problems I've had with Android all this time wasn't Android, it was my Galaxy S3's bloatware that was the issue. Both Samsung and AT&T destroyed the Android experience. What Samsung sells should not be allowed to be branded Android, it gives Android a bad name. They should force them to brand it "Samsung Android" so that people can see the distinction. Thanks Google for finally bypassing the hardware manufacturers and making Android a good experience. +Android

Samsung sucks big time, they should stick to just building hardware, they have absolutely no clue how to do software. i actually will be avoiding any Samsung hardware from now on, it's just junk electronics.

Why I am disappointed in Android

At long last my contract with AT&T has expired, and I will finally be able to get rid of this horrible Galaxy SIII. I am sorry I ever moved to Android, this OS has no discernible advantages over iOS. In fact, each update that was made slowly eroded all of the advantages it has. It's now an even worse data jail than iOS, it's become a data jail where every move is watched by Google. I can't make use of the external SD card because the phone refuses to store anything on the external card. And Android file transfer with the Mac doesn't work half the time. 

I hope someone at Google reads this. Too bad Google wasn't able to create a decent user experience with Android. I am going back to iPhone. My toddler is capable of using an iPhone, but not an Android. That says something about the usability of Android.

It's not that Android is difficult to use. It's all the annoyances, i.e. bugs. For example, every single time I get into my car, my Android starts to auto-play from the Android player. There is no settings where I can change that. Google decided this is how it's going to work and I am stuck with it. What's worse is that the Android player ghost plays, i.e. it doesn't even show as an active app, you have to launch the player to shut it down. To this day, the titles don't show up in the car for most apps except Google Music. The E-mail app stinks, it's horrible. Only Gmail is good. Basically, if you don't use Google services, Android sucks so bad it's not worth using. Another annoyance: it's almost impossible to get Android to use the external SD card. Why? Probably because Google wants you to use all the Cloud services. And then this stupid Google cards app keeps coming up. Yikes!!! All of these issues are Android related, not Samsung related. And then all the useless widgets, they burn up memory and battery life, and I've realized I've never ever had to use them. They're utterly useless. Then there is the Samsung crap to deal with. Bad WiFi, crappy camera, horrible battery life. Then there is the form factor. My thumb can't reach all of the screen, that's just bad design. Android users need both hands to use their phone. Come on, Android is a "me too" that doesn't even come close to the Apple experience.

Could someone recommend proper ways to root an AT&T Galaxy S3 from Mac OSX? Everything I am finding via Google search seems outdated and no longer works.

Ok, so it's more expensive than going down to Kapa'a but you can't beat the convenience and since I'm a big fan of Japanese food I really appreciate the excellent selection of Japanese groceries. If you live in Princeville the convenience is unbeatable. Super friendly staff.

Santa Cruz Volkswagen was the only dealer in the greater bay area that was willing to special order our desired car - a TDI Wagon with the premium package but as a manual 5 speed. This is the best car we have ever purchased, and we are now enjoying the 50mpg we're getting thanks to the manual transmission and the on-board computer. Our sales rep Robert was honest and above board. There was no BS at all. When our car arrived, we were in our car and driving home within the hour. If you want a great and honest salesman, ask for Robert. Compared to the horrors we have experienced at other VW dealerships, this is by far the most refreshing experience. If you are going to buy a VW in the greater Bay area, avoid all the other dealerships and do business with Santa Cruz Volkswagen. And the VW Jetta TDI Wagon with the premium package and manual transmission is a dream - when we drive it mellow like our hybrid and we follow the onboard computer's suggestions for when to shift gears, the mileage simply goes through the roof.
