#Nexus6  cases picture review(Google Play cases).  
Let me make it real ez for you. DO NOT BUY the "Naked Tough" hard plastic case. It seriously blows, I HATE IT.  
I DO like the "leatherish" "stand folio" case. It's a pleasure and works great.  

Just one more thing, I HATE the naked tough stupid ass hard plastic case that I had to use my car-keys to PRY open the stupid cheap-arse kick stand.

Don't Buy the naked tough stupid cheap hard-plastic clear case.

Can you identify which is the #Nexus6   in this photo ?
I just got mine. I'm just not sure what to think yet.  
My Knee-Jerk reaction is, "Daaayum, this is a big-ass phone".  
Another thought: this may be embarrassing to hold up to my face in public.   
Remember, these are my knee-jerk reaction. less than 60 minutes ownership.  will post more later.  Currently transferring settings/accounts via #NFC   from my #Nexus5     #Android   #Lollipop  
Let me know of any immediate questions.

I haven't written a review, but here are my pics from when i grabbed the #SurfacePro3   from #Microsoft      .
this is currently my daily driver, even ahead of my beloved #MacBookPro    but the Mac is always within reach.  and I still fire it up (using #ChromeRemoteDesktop   :)  )
Surface Pro 3, is very very good.  Wifi errors are disappointing.  Outside of that, a great gadget, but very expensive and therefore not for everyone.

My quick review and pics of #SurfacePro3  dock
The surface pro 3 dock is exactly what I needed.  Lightweight and sturdy, the dock is easy to use and enhances the abilities of your Surface Pro 3.  If you're not a "dock person", or have limited b...

Not sure if there's still demand for #GoogleInbox   invites, but I have a handful.  need your gmail to invite you.     

Keep in mind: it takes a while ( 1 day maybe ) for you to get the invite, hopefully it's sooner now. I can't fully remember.

Quick Review:  
I run a tight gmail ship, and have many accounts forwarded to myself.  
There are 2 main things I don't like about #Inbox   .. 
#1 is the auto-bundling. I've accidentally marked DONE many emails at once I didn't intend to. ( edit this "feature" in settings to unbundle)
#2 is still no swipe to DELETE.  I don't want to ARCHIVE my emails, i want them deleted with a swipe, not a long press...

However, make your own call.

+Richard Welch  I run a very tight ship with gmail. by that, I mean i use filters, labeling/tagging, and I actually consolidate all my emails to my personal email.  with that said, I don't know anyone else that does the same.  .  so i'm kinda saying I dont' "need" inbox.  So i use it only for testing and evaluating it's progress.  my biggest beef is that in the Inbox App, I can't change SWIPE to DELETE emails. it's locked in at SWIPE TO ARCHIVE, which I hate...  

Regardless of my feedback... you can use gmail and inbox simultaneously, therefore there is no harm in testing it for yourself to see if it meets your needs.
Booya !

I arrived at the state id office 9:30 a.m. and was back in my car at 12:40 I just want the dang ID for cheaper golf. ( traffic was nasty since I stupidly left Ewa Beach at like 8 a.m. ) $15 for most people $10 for seniors. Once my lucky #71 was called, I was out of there in about 15 minutes.. Having the right paperwork is the Key to getting any official stuff done in Hawaii. I felt the staff was friendly, but I had everything I needed. If you're in doubt, ask the cop by the door, he's cool. DOCS: I had my original birth certificate, and for my proof of residence I used my most recent bill from the Hawaii Electric Company. I did not have my Social Security Card but you DO HAVE TO HAVE IT. The previous day I went to the SSA office to get a replacement SS Card, and I told them I was going to get my state id. the dude at SSA faxed "something" to the state ID office. I told the clerk that "SSA Faxed my SS Card Request" , amazingly, she went back, found it and it worked ! I couldn't believe it. Honestly, I don't even think that she looked at my driver's license. UPDATE #1: their policies are changing in this office, so I was not able to make an online appointment. I did fill out the form for state ID at my house ( print pdf ) but that didn't really save much time. UPDATE #2: You won't get the "official ID" immediately anymore. You'll get a paper temporary card, and they'll mail you the real one in a couple weeks. ( similar to other states ) not a huge deal. The temp card expires 30 days. PARKING: There certainly are coin op parking spots, but most are limited to 2 hours. I decided to pay $10 early bird fee and parked right around the corner in the "Haseko Business Center", nice and shady. BURN TIME: I got my ticket from the officer told me to expect a "2+hour wait". So I went and got my favorite breakfast at J's BBQ (410 Keawe St) . After eating I took a slow stroll to Kaka'ako Waterfront Park ONLY 1 SPOOF: When I got my picture taken, the clerk told me I was too tall ( I'm 6'2" ). She asked me to lightly squat down to take my picture. I got a few smiles and a couple friendly comments about that on my way out since everyone could see me squatting like an idiot and I was the tallest guy in the room :) Make a half-day of it, I think the shortcuts are over. But it gets 2 stars, because in today's age of technology, there is no reason to wait so long for something that takes 10-15 minutes. YIKES ! Booya !
