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 💗

Cortana: Hey, at least I'm not Bixby.
I got a new computer, so I decided to give Cortana another chance.

Noooope.

Man, I'm really going to miss our blobs.

Google's recent emoji redesign is starting to become a social movement. And it's pretty damn hilarious! I bet Google didn't expect this to happen.

"Congrats to Google for making their new emoji set look like bootleg Apple emojis. RIP good emoji design!"

"I honestly do not know if I will ever get over this. Haven't seen a downgrade this severe from a corporation this big in a while."

Google’s blob emoji are great and no one will convince me otherwise: https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/25/15688528/google-blob-emoji-android-o-rip

It looks like MyQ will soon be supported by Google Assistant via an Assistant app.

It's not working yet, I'm getting an error when I try to link my account.

I also wish we had native integration and not via app.

FINALLY, the Huawei Watch 2 (Classic) is available for purchase. Though, I personally think it's a not as nice looking as the original Huawei Watch.

But if you need a new Android Wear smartwatch and don't like all of the sporty looking models that are out there, this one seems to be a mix of sport and elegance all in one.

The second gen Moto 360 is finally getting Android Wear 2.0. Mash your check update buttons if you have one!

I'm really enjoying all of Android Wear 2.0 on my Huawei Watch. It's much smoother than it previously was, battery life is fine, getting 2 days, I really enjoy how notifications are handled, and the new app drawer is nice and easily accessible.
