Why you need comments
I swear The Verge turned off comments because they were tired of getting yelled at for screwing up posts like this.

http://www.theverge.com/2015/7/22/9013455/sony-android-concept-xperia-z3-software-preview

"The goal, says Sony, is to develop new software "from the ground up," meaning no Google Play Services or superfluous apps, just the core Google communications software and Sony's stack of custom apps like Camera, Music, and Xperia Lounge."

The second half of this sentence contradicts the first. You can't have Google apps without Google Play Services—they wouldn't work. Also releasing Android without Google Play Services would be in violation of the "anti-fragmentation clause" in their MADA contract and Google would pull their Google Play license.  

They don't even link to the actual Sony blog post so people can get the correct information. (it's here: http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2015/07/22/launching-sonys-concept-for-android-initiative-in-sweden/ )

IF The Verge had comments turned on, this post would be getting ripped to shreds. Now they can misinform people in peace.

My wife replaced the battery in her car key this week without any help from me.
I'm pretty sure I've outlived my usefulness in this relationship.

Google Hangouts is social
I wish Google took other social stuff (like Instant Messaging) as seriously at it once took Google+. Other companies are investing billions here and Hangouts continues to be neglected.

We've seen reports of a possible Huawei Nexus phone before, and the day before this new article here came out (http://www.gizmochina.com/2015/05/07/huawei-made-nexus-to-feature-samsungs-5-7-inch-2k-screen-according-to-analyst/), one of our good sources reached out to say there is indeed a Huawei Nexus planned, in 5.7" size.

Now with today's report, I am more confident in that rumor.

What's more interesting, the source also mentioned a second Nexus phone this year - an LG, with a planned 5.2" screen size. If Google indeed rolls with both, it'd be the first time two Nexus phones came out in the same year - a strategy that makes a whole lot of sense to me as not everyone is into behemoths like a Nexus 6.

It's still extremely early in the year, and last year, as we've seen, plans changed drastically throughout the year and resulted in a totally different phone becoming a Nexus than was planned in the first half of 2014. So yeah, early rumors are early rumors, don't treat them as facts, and they're almost surely going to change.

Once I feel confident enough in these rumors, they'll graduate to +Android Police.

So. Freaking. True.

Google should give all Nexus 9 users some Google Play credit for this mess.
Artem Russakovskii originally shared:
 
I'm sure there's a reason for not seeing 5.1.1, but I just can't take Nexus 9 seriously anymore.

I booted mine up yesterday, and it was so laggy, it was absolutely unusable. Worse than Asus tablets or the Nexus 7 2012, which is an absolute dog. Great investment, eh? 
You know how the Nexus 9 is still waiting to get the Android 5.1 update? Well, there's an OTA update rolling out right now that isn't Android 5.1. Whe... by Ryan Whitwam in Device Updates, Lollipop 5.0/5.1, News, Nexus 9

Just a reminder that Apple will sell literally some of these exact watches (hundreds, possibly!) tomorrow, to real, live human beings with real, live higher brain function. It will happen. The credit cards are being pre-authorized now. Over $1000. For a smartwatch. In 2015. 

More than an iPhone 6 Plus 128GB, more than a MacBook Air, more than a 60-inch TV.

For a smartwatch.

Always a fun night, nice mix of people (young and old). Food is fine, though I doubt the freshness of them like in most other Spoons I've been to. Some good deals on alcohol, especially things like jagerbombs and the like. Plenty of seating, fairly nice outside area. Located close to the train station. I've spent many Friday nights at this pub without going anywhere else and still had a fun, eventful night.

Very courteous staff. Portions are always incredibly well sized, food is well cooked. They actually asked me if it was OK to wait longer because they felt the cod was too dry - anyone else would have just given me the dry cod. And they gave me a free drink to compensate for the wait. Highly recommend, staff are always willing to have a conversation.
