It's not a Gmail clone. +Inbox by Gmail is better.
Google polarized the Gmail crowd when it released Inbox. For some, it was confusing and unhelpful. For others like myself, however, Inbox is a breath of fresh air. Here’s how it’s changed my workflow, and why I think it’s worth giving it a shot.http://lifehacker.com/how-googles-ne...

I use it for mobile but still prefer traditional Gmail for Desktop. I like +Isaac Elisaldez  prefer the ability to separate my stuff in multiple Labels/Folders.

We need the Moto X to succeed

It's not a major secret that the US wireless phone industry is widely controlled by the major carriers here. From bloatware, to slow updates, to availability, everything done to carrier branded devices here in the US just plain sucks.

There is however, a better option, and that's unlocked phones sold directly to the consumer from the manufacturer. It's not done very often and when it is, there's often little success, because old habits die hard. The vast majority of consumers buy smartphones from their carrier's website or their carrier's storefront.

Chinese OEMs such as Huawei and others are trying to break into the US market by selling unlocked phones online, without carrier acknowledgement. However, the average consumer off the street has no clue who these companies are and we need this to change. These companies make great hardware too. It's a shame.

Motorola could help set a precedent here. Motorola is a well known brand and they're launching a phone here in the US that's unlocked, affordable, and carries the flagship moniker. We need this direct-to-consumer approach to take off. We need people to realize it's okay to buy a smartphone online.

I'm excited for this method to take off not only for unlocked phones without carriers muddying the waters, but for even more options. We all know what a Samsung phone or HTC phone looks like. We're very familiar with Motorola, LG, and Sony. I'm ready to see Huawei, OPPO, ZTE, and Xiaomi break into the US market and offer us even more choices.

So, I agree +Kellen Barranger. I hope that +Motorola Mobility sells more phones through Moto Maker than they could have ever imagined. The price is right. The design is right. The Google experience is right. This phone should be on everyone's radar.
Whether or not you plan to buy the new Moto X Pure Edition when it arrives in September, you should be rooting for Motorola to sell record numbers of them. This new direct-to-consumer approach from a brand like Motorola is something that could help continue to change this industry for the better ...

Holy shit
 
Do you ever find yourself trying to avoid long lines or wondering when is the best time to go grocery shopping, pick up coffee or hit the gym (hint: avoid Monday after work)? You’re in luck!

Now, you can avoid the wait and see the busiest times of the week at millions of places and businesses around the world directly from Google Search. For example, just search for "Blue Bottle Williamsburg", tap on the title and see how busy it gets throughout the day. Enjoy your extra time!

Not all soreness is good.
Most people tend to be in a love-hate relationship with muscle soreness. It sucks when you can barely sit down on the toilet, but it feels awesome knowing that you worked out hard. That’s fine and all, but just because you’re sore may not be the best indicator for muscle growth. Here’s what we mean.

Good to know. As I'm just starting back in the Gym, the TL;DR is that lighter more frequent sessions are better especially in the beginning.
