The only reason they don't put the good camera in your phone is because it would drive the price up too much.  Increasingly, it's the software that's making the camera on the phone better, not the sensor.  If you're in to photography, and like the latest point and shoot without the heft of the slr, something like this is it.  This one is super easy, if you already own an android device.

Yup. 
 
 The United Nations has issued a report warning that, unless the world takes radical action in order to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, climate change/global warming will become disastrous and irreversible. The deadline is 10 to 15 years. The thing is, we were told the same thing 15 years ago. http://rall.com/comic/climate-change-rapid-response-team

I'm an HTC guy for the moment. Which would you pick? 
 
Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One (M8): Which should you get?

Two of the most eye-catching Android phones of the year are begging for our attention right now -- and all the hype can make it hard to know which one's right for you.

So let's make this simple, shall we? After living with both devices, I've put together the following guide to help you figure it out:

I get ya. I'm still hanging on to my DNA. Iphone? Yuck. 

The Lumina 1020 keeps calling to me, but... no Verizon, and I've got grandfathered unlimited there. 

If they ever kill that though, AT&T is on the table.

Epic post on G+ by +Paul Mays  destroying Global Climate Change Alarmists with a series of direct quotes from global climate change scientists.

Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.” - UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.

“The IPCC has actually become a closed circuit; it doesn’t listen to others. It doesn’t have open minds… I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists.” – Indian geologist Dr. Arun D. Ahluwalia at Punjab University and a board member of the UN-supported International Year of the Planet.

“Temperature measurements show that the [climate model-predicted mid-troposphere] hot zone is non-existent. This is more than sufficient to invalidate global climate models and projections made with them!”- UN IPCC Scientist Dr. Steven M. Japar, a PhD atmospheric chemist who was part of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Second (1995) and Third (2001) Assessment Reports, and has authored 83 peer-reviewed publications and in the areas of climate change, atmospheric chemistry, air pollutions and vehicle emissions.
UN IPCC Scientist Kenneth P. Green Declares ‘A Death Spiral for Climate Alarmism’ – September 30, 2009 – ‘We can expect climate crisis industry to grow increasingly shrill, and increasingly hostile toward anyone who questions their authority’ - Dr. Kenneth Green was a Working Group 1 expert reviewer for the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2001

‘The whole climate change issue is about to fall apart — Heads will roll!’ -South African UN Scientist Dr. Will Alexander, April 12, 2009 – Professor Alexander, is Emeritus of the Department of Civil and Biosystems Engineering at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a former member of the United Nations Scientific and Technical Committee on Natural Disasters.

“I was at the table with three Europeans, and we were having lunch. And they were talking about their role as lead authors. And they were talking about how they were trying to make the report so dramatic that the United States would just have to sign that Kyoto Protocol,” Christy told CNN on May 2, 2007. – Alabama State Climatologist Dr. John Christy of the University of Alabama in Huntsville, served as a UN IPCC lead author in 2001 for the 3rd assessment report and detailed how he personally witnessed UN scientists attempting to distort the science for political purposes.

“Gore prompted me to start delving into the science again and I quickly found myself solidly in the skeptic camp…Climate models can at best be useful for explaining climate changes after the fact.” – Meteorologist Hajo Smit of Holland, who reversed his belief in man-made warming to become a skeptic, is a former member of the Dutch UN IPCC committee.

“The quantity of CO2 we produce is insignificant in terms of the natural circulation between air, water and soil… I am doing a detailed assessment of the UN IPCC reports and the Summaries for Policy Makers, identifying the way in which the Summaries have distorted the science.” – South African Nuclear Physicist and Chemical Engineer Dr. Philip Lloyd, a UN IPCC co-coordinating lead author who has authored over 150 refereed publications.

“The claims of the IPCC are dangerous unscientific nonsense” – declared IPCC reviewer and climate researcher Dr Vincent Gray, of New Zealand in 2007. Gray was an expert reviewer on every single draft of the IPCC reports going back to 1990, author of more than 100 scientific publications.

“After reading [UN IPCC chairman] Pachauri’s asinine comment [comparing skeptics to] Flat Earthers, it’s hard to remain quiet.” – Climate statistician Dr. William M. Briggs, who specializes in the statistics of forecast evaluation, serves on the American Meteorological Society’s Probability and Statistics Committee and is an Associate Editor of Monthly Weather Review.

Looks like most everything comes from this page...

Amazing how easy it is to find information that counters the AGW claims of the IPCC.

This is what artificial control of market demand results in. The reason this car was made was not to sell the car, not to meet a market demand, but to satisfy government efficiency regulations that are driven by the Global Climate Change hoax. This is a textbook example of what happens when we try to socially engineer market economies. People die. This is what liberal progressive political agendas fail to accept.

There was almost no demand for Cobalt, but GM had little choice but to build them. No surprise it wasn't a quality car.

I mean, seriously. It is a hurricanes from butterfly wings effect, isn't it? All these noble intentions come together to create all these horribly unintended consequences, and literally, people end up dead because of it. 

That whole, "Well, if we CAN do something about it, we should at least TRY..." argument that I keep hearing, this is what the counter argument comes down to. 

"No, if we're not certain, then trying "something" may be a lot worse than doing fucking nothing at all."

What is this yellow car? It looks like a modern interpretation of a classic Porsche.
