My wife's book is now available on Amazon: http://goo.gl/lDtjzH

In 1992, nine-year-old Katie Beers was kidnapped by a family friend and locked in an underground box for 17 days. Katie has now come forward to tell the story that created a national media storm as reporters uncovered the truth about her pre-kidnapping life of neglect and sexual abuse and the details of her rescue. She shares how this experience and the recent death of her kidnapper, John Esposito, has affected her life. Despite the horrible reality of Katie's days of being chained in darkness, the kidnapping was, in fact, the climactic end of a tragic childhood and the beginning of a new life.

Katie has been traveling around the country the past two years keynote speaking at various child advocacy and victim events, motivational and inspirational speaking venues, and of course various media outlets.

My wife's book, Buried Memories, is a NYT Bestseller. This is the new and updated version that includes new chapters such as life after Buried Memories.

For those that do not know, part of the reason for the new book is sadly because the original book publisher completely screwed her and I over, stealing thousands of dollars from us (essentially victimizing a victim, awesome huh?). The book has been released with a reputable publisher and we couldn't be happier with the change.

Thank you so much for the share and the kind words +Virginia Poltrack. Katie and I appreciate it :)
So I really struggled with how to word this post. Let me start by linking to this book- http://www.amazon.com/dp/0985247843/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=katiebeers-20

I met +Katie Beers​​ before I knew about this book, about her story. I liked her immediately, and in fact, just thought she was a GREAT person. The kind of friend that when you meet them for the first time, you walk away thinking to yourself, "I really adore that person, I'm so happy to have met them!"

Then I learned a bit about this story, and ordered the book. And I was floored. To say she is an amazing person and survivor is an understatement. Basically, I was completely blown away and have a new found respect for someone I already held in really high regard. Katie, thank you for sharing this. You're amazing, and deserve every happiness. I'm really proud to call you a friend 💗

Pixel 3 'crosshatch' and 'blueline' show up again in AOSP and tell us nothing. That said, it's pretty impressive how little amount of leaks we've had on these devices compared to previous years. We've still got some time left though.

Did you miss the Android P AMA on Reddit? I did. The bros over at Android Police have compiled a list of need to knows for your reading pleasure.

I'm excited to see how AI can shape battery life with Adaptive Battery, Dark Mode, and hope that the slow sharing menu is addressed soon.

Please follow me on Twitch! https://twitch.tv/derekross.

Hey everyone! I'm sure you've seen me post about this before, but I'm now streaming on Twitch. I'm mainly going to be streaming Overwatch and the upcoming World of Warcraft's Battle for Azeroth expansion. Twitch is fun. I've gotten heavily back into gaming recently and I'm even working on an Esports league. Pretty exciting stuff. I'll post about all of that in the near future. For now, I'd appreciate a follow and if you ever are on Twitch and see me streaming drop by and say hello!

Heck, if you're into playing top teir games such as Overwatch, Fortnite, League of Legends, Rocket League, World of Warcraft, Counter-Strike:Global Offensive, Black Desert Online, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, etc, you should also stop by my Discord at http://discord.NevermoreESL.com. We have over 100 members, 4 dedicated Overwatch league teams, we're building 2 more right now, plans to reach 12 by end of year. We plan on expanding into other games in the future, but right now, our members just casually play all of the ones I previously mentioned. Come help fill our ranks!

Fuchsia COULD replace Android in 5 years.

Could Fuchsia replace the world's most popular operating system in 5 years? Sure, anything's possible. Especially since Android will be 15 years old and technology moves along quite fast. You can only band aid and rewrite fix things so many times before it's better to start all over again with something else. So, yeah, I could see this report being true.
