Did anyone catch this on pre -order? I'd love to see it action. The API could be an interesting tie-in with cars and public transit. The SHIFT guys in Vegas should incorporate equipped bikes in their fleet. #urbanmobility #cycling
 
It may not be the self-driving car, but where urban mobility is concerned, it's smarter than your average wheel... The Copenhagen Wheel wants to turn your bike into an e-bike. #urbanmobility
GP editors get an early look at the highly anticipated Copenhagen Wheel.

Truth?
 
The greatest deception, and the deepest source of unhappiness is the illusion of finding life by excluding God.

I had the great fun the other week of hanging with Tim Ferriss on his podcast, an episode he titled Matt Mullenweg on Polyphasic Sleep, Tequila, and Building Billion-Dollar Companies. His previous guest was Arnold Schwarzenegger (!) and if you dig into…

This was a great event +SVForum put on! I'm looking forward to seeing this develop into a SIG for #connectedcar  or "future mobility."
 
A unique forum dedicated to the future of automotive #SVFDrive Feb 18 - Join us bit.ly/SVFDrive @metromile
 Buckle up—big changes are ahead!  Thanks to advances in smart technology and an increasingly mobile lifestyle, we are steering towards an electrifying new future of life on the road. And with Google's driverless car is already navigating the California freeways, it seems that our everyday vehicles are on the brink of a major evolution. Futurists predict our cars will progress from single-use machines to an entire user experience, where everythi...

Hey #Android  folks, I can't for the life of me find an answer to two recurring issues that have plagued me with Android devices, including my Nexus 5, a Moto X and now +OnePlus One.

1. First and most annoying is Google's Hangouts app which I love, but it's extremely slow when contacts are loading for a new chat and two when waiting to reply to a text chat (the cursor takes about 45 seconds to appear)

2. Homescreen slow down. Icons loading take 5 seconds. 

The first two devices had been upgraded to Lollipop which I thought may be worthy of the blame, but now the 1+ is behaving the same and it's running Android 4.4.4. I've cleared the system cache, deleted app caches and hunted the forums to no avail. If you've been tagged in this post, you're on my Android geeks list.

I love what +Roope Mokka  and team at Demos Helsinki are doing to cast the vision for the next wave of high-impact startups or "smartups." It was great being a part of the team hatching the "Smartup Manifesto" and movement. I think paves the road for future   #cleanweb  innovators and it fits well with my work in transportation and "Future of Mobility" at +Vinli Developers

Check out Roope's presentation introducing #Smartups  back in November at #Slush14  Festival. Looking forward to round 2 of the Smartup Summit and #FlowTalks in August!

Anxious to get my mitts on Oxygen. Love the +OnePlus​ One hardware with the exception of my iPhone headset not working with it!

Yeah, in that code you have to account for all kinds of resistances and headsets with different configurations. Wish it was better standardized and works for play/pause, but handling the call audio and pickup welllll......

Went with a Groupon and hard to argue to get them to accept the terms which ruined an otherwise nice meal. Katy Trail location is much nicer.

Love the location, coffee and baristas. Adjoining taco joint could use a lesson from Austin legends like Torchy's - just sayin.
