Back in January, Motorola's CEO Dennis Woodward said that the Moto G was just the start. Woodside said that for as cheap as the $179 Moto G is, that's still expensive for a lot of consumers. He thinks that Motorola can do a lot better, mentioning a $50 smartphone.
Well smartphone fans, enter the XT1022. These specs could be the upcoming cheaper variant that Dennis had mentioned, rumored to launch next month.
1.2GHz dual-core processor
4GB internal storage
Android 4.4 KitKAt
Still no word if the 1P1 will rock Qi charging. If it does, this might just be the perfect phone.
In the future you'll be able to manually upload / sync all of your photos from Glass without having to find WiFi or a power outlet. If you're mobile and wish to view your Glass photos on a larger screen or edit them prior to sharing, that's going to get a whole lot easier.
AP also found that some day the Glass display might turn on simply but looking at it. This method seems much better than having to cock your head back, which can sometimes be a bit annoying if you move around like a crazy person when talking ...like I do apparently ;)
Earlier this week, we got a supposed sneak peak at Google’s upcoming icon changes for a future version of Android, dubbed internally as Moonshine.

When Android's #1 OEM puts out a product, we direct our watchful eyes in their direction... unless it's Galaxy Gear, then we run away as fast as we can. I haven't had a chance to use the Galaxy S5, but it looks like a heck of a nice phone to me. I'd never personally use it as a daily driver because I dislike Samsung's UI. That's my personal choice. The hardware though, I can't see anything wrong with it.
There's a lot of phones coming out right now... Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, Oppo Find 7, OnePlus One, Sony Xperia Z2...which one will you choose?
The goal: to integrate a Project Tango prototype onto a robotic platform, called SPHERES, that flies inside the International Space Station. The SPHERES program aims to develop zero-gravity autonomous platforms that could act as robotic assistants for astronauts or perform maintenance activities independently on station.

I use social networking to meet new exciting people, make new friends, stay up to day with old friends, express myself and engage in some great conversations that I wouldn't have normally had the opportunity. Over the past 17 years of my online life, I've made numerous online friends through various social communities and continue to talk to them, even the oldest ones, all of the time. I look forward to meeting you :)
