Such a sad day to see that the man and soul behind R2D2 has passed away today. Kenny Baker, the man who was inside our favorite Star Wars droid has passed away at the age of 81.

+Russell Holly said it very well. While there are good intentions and good ideas within Duo, it's definitely not the way it should have been done.

It's very limited for the two reasons he mentioned 1) You have to have a number tied to the device and 2) You can only be logged in with it on one device at a time.

Why are these things being developed like this in 2016? Once again Google had a chance to really hit the nail on the head. They swung and they missed, again.

We have Google Voice, Google Hangouts and now Duo and soon Allo.

While they are all different in their own ways, the ultimate goal is to have all of this in one, or maybe two, apps to keep from having to switch back and forth to this app, that app and yet another app.

Knock Knock not being on iOS, massive fail, since that's the big feature that was really being introduced/pushed with Duo. Should have waited to release Duo on iOS until it had that feature.

I say just like everything else, Duo will be hyped up for a while then fade away like so many other Google apps or services. There's just nothing ground breaking here and I honestly don't see all the hype about it already.

I installed it and tested it. Video quality was good for a few minutes, then it got horribly bad. Not just once, not just twice but every time. It's not my connection because it happened to the person I was talking to and they were on iOS in their own home.

I really hope Google gets things together and makes something special one day when it comes to these kinds of apps. To have something as awesome as they made Google+ would be ground breaking!

#Google   #Android   #iOS   #Duo  
Google Duo only lets you log in to a single device login at a time (tough for me), requires you have phone numbers in all of your contacts in order to place video calls (the total opposite of my current setup) and doesn't do the Knock Knock thing on iOS (the one big feature this thing has right now).

Any Google+ user who has been paying attention can tell you that features != success, and it's clear this was not built with someone like me in mind, but this just feels sort of... bland. Video comes in clear, but I already knew it was going to do that because Google is already pretty good at that.

30 seconds in, with basically no one to call and test the service, I give it one awkward thumb in the general direction of up.

If the Knock Knock feature is in fact possible on iOS, wouldn't be the first time they released a feature for an app on one platform and not the other -- at least as often as not, if a feature is possible on both platforms, iOS actually gets it first (has happened multiple times with Hangouts).

+Jeffrey Young They are cushions for the controller that prevent it slipping and stuff, plus it helps you not sweat onto the controller itself. KontrolFreeks has the same thing, but I have discovered theirs don't last long so I'm hoping these will last longer.

+Mike Sullivan Nice. I'm really hoping we get it soon.

Technology addict who is addicted to music, things that go beep, the internet and Android. Founder/Chief Editor of
I am a technology enthusiast who always wants the latest and greatest gadget and gizmo. I'm addicted to music and have some kind or form of it playing every single second that I possibly can. I'm a very large supporter of the Android community in every way possible. I also happen to be highly addicted to icons on my mobile device.

Founder/Chief Editor:

Android Devices: Motorola Moto X Pure(2015), Motorola Moto X 2014, LG Watch Urbane

Computers/Laptops: Toshiba Satellite S55T-C5250-4K, Custom built desktop, HP ChromeBook

Gaming Consoles: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, XBox 360, XBox One

Linux: I've been using Linux in some form since around 2001. I've tried or used just about every flavor of Linux out there over the years. I started with Mandrake(which later became Mandriva). I used that distro as my main distro for around 9 - 10 years. I have tried such things as Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Debian, Fedora Core(later became just Fedora), Slackware, Lindows, PCLinuxOS, Mageia, Yellow Dog Linux and countless others along the way. I am now using Fedora as my main distro.

Music: I can't function without this. There is always music playing somewhere around me 24/7. Whether I'm at home, work, in a vehicle or whatever. If I have a way, I'll definitely be playing some music. I'm not just a one genre type person. I like all types of music. From hard metal to opera. I listen to it all. My favorite genres, in no particular order, are: Alternative, Rock, Metal, New Country, Pop, 80's, Top 40, Electronica, Hair Bands, New Wave/Techno and Old Country. But I of course don't limit myself to just those.

Electronics: If it beeps, plugs into a wall or takes batteries, then chances are I'm addicted to it. I started at a very young age with such things as hand held video games, Atari 2600 and other great stuff that pioneered us into what we have today. The Commodore 64/128 and the Nintendo Entertainment System(NES) is what really transformed me into a true technology nut.

Android: I'm seriously addicted to Google's mobile OS they call Android. In my opinion it's the best type of technology to come about in a very long time, dating back to when the internet first came about. All I can say is Android is simply amazing and getting better every single day. Thanks to Android I've met a ton of new people that have truly brought a lot of goods things into my life that I'm very thankful for. I work for TeslaCoilSW, the makers of Nova Launcher, Nova Launcher Prime, WidgetLocker and other Android apps. 

Video Games: I love video games. I started playing them when I was somewhere around 5 or 6 years old and have played them ever since. I've had just about every video game system possible and currently play on the PlayStation 4 and the XBox One. I also do a bit of streaming to Twitch and to YouTube. My PSN is: CliffWade and my XBox GamerTag is: CliffordWade

My Google+ Collections:

I like to write about any and all things tech related and do so on my website,

I am a huge Houston Texans fan and love Star Wars as well as my father who means the world to me. Shooting pool, playing foosball, video games, drinking Dr. Pepper and eating Doritos are some of my favorite pastimes.

I have a father, Guffy Wade, who is much more than a father to me in so many ways. He's my best friend, life saver and confidant and I proudly call him POPS! 

Was part of Google+ the day it launched(June 29th, 2011). Was also one of the first ones to have a Google Gmail account. And no, I didn't have to buy an invite from eBay either!

I spend a lot of hours on social media and social networking as it's a great way to meet new and exciting people to interact with. Some of those people I've had a pleasure of meeting in real life and hopefully soon I'll get to meet many more. 

If you have any questions or want to know anything further, please feel free to ask. If you need help with anything that I might know something about, don't hesitate to message me and I will certainly try my best to help.
