Is there any reason Google has not yet optimized Android Wear to fit round watches nicely instead of having content cut off by the curves?

Until someone (if it is ever possible) will find some clever way to make content fit into the round screen nicely and usable, it is in fact a waste of space, as +Mark Ford​​ pointed out. Space that is very limited and at premium on this type of device.

Anyone know why Google Fit doesn't show HR data from the Moto 360 even when Google Fit is set to check HR? When I open Google Fit on the Nexus 6 there is no HR data displayed.

System 76 should consider offering Elementary OS as an option on everything they make.

Elementary OS is doing awesome they have a slick new release with a privacy mode and are clearly putting their users first building a first class distro.

Good job folks!

+Orpharion Oroborus Bestheneme​ Bing does power some of the search experience but Microsoft has not been a monopoly for years now. Google is more a monopoly than Microsoft ever was.

+Benjamin Kerensa​ the remote control of the Browser from your mobile (which is exactly that what whatsapp is doing) has nothing to do with open web Standards (my 2cent) Firefox OS could do the same with their devices...and when Google reveiled this technology everyone said oh my $deity this is freacking cool controlling a ball inside my Browser canvas with the fecking Android mobile....

"We all deserve compassion, and to live online and off in a more compassionate world"
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

If you are waiting for Android 5.1 for the Nexus 6 it is still supposedly a few days away along with the Nexus 9

This doesn't discriminate against any of those things. It promotes women in technology.

It is ok but sometimes they mess up orders and the location attracts drug addicts so take out is the only reasonable option.

Biddy's during the evenings is often packed but even worse the music is usually deafening and it takes forever to get a drink from bartenders who are inattentive. Maybe the experience is different during the day but at night I would avoid it.

I have been to Dig A Pony twice for events and the decor inside is really nice and the bartenders are very friendly. The biggest turn-off I have is the regulars which seem to be a mix of hipster and yuppies.

Fubonn's is essentially a Walmart of Asian Foods and has a huge selection of food, beverages and other stuff from any region of Asia you can name. They have a great number of restaurants and other shops all within the mall.

I really enjoy Bipartisan Cafe's line up of cold and hot beverages, sandwiches, soups and pastries. The staff their will make you feel at home and the decor is very old americana.

Paiton has been my neighborhood Thai restaurant that I like the most. The quantity and quality of food is always good and the costs are totally affordable. Paitong makes one thing most Thai restaurants do not which is a Gluten Free dessert that resembles an egg roll.
