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 💗

Huawei Watch 2 Classic announced with Android Pay!

When I saw the Huawei Watch 2 leak last week, I was very disappointed. It was very sporty and ugly looking. I love the look of the original Huawei Watch and was hoping for an elegant follow up to that smartwatch. Thankfully, Huawei has delivered with their Huawei Watch 2 Classic announcement. The Classic doesn't have LTE connectivity, for some reason, but I don't need LTE on my smartwatch.

Google Spaces will be shut down on April 17th, 2017

Well, if you use Google Spaces, it's going away after 11 months of non-use... I used Spaces the first day it launched and that was it. There was no reason to continue to use it. I had hoped that Spaces would turn into Google's Slack competitor, but I guess that I was wrong, at least for now.

I cannot wait for Allo on the desktop. This is my most wanted feature by far. Hopefully it's coming sooner than later.
