Congratulations, Moto. I have yet to even hear any definitive word on when I'm going to get a 6 month old update on my First Gen. I'm not "spoiled" for wanting the latest upgrade.

I just talked to a Motorola rep asking if they knew when the 1st Generation was going to get 5.0. She had a very sincere response as far as I can tell:

"...We are as excited as you are about Android 5.0 update but we do not have exact information on that yet as we are still in the process of testing it [for] some users. But definitely it will be widely released soon."

Many of you are probably aware, but I guess I'm just trying to keep everyone's spirit up, knowing that we are still getting Lollipop!

Well, perhaps I'm a "cockeyed optimist", but if she truly meant they were in the process of testing " Gen 1" for users, that would imply they already have a Build (and hopefully a "Release Candidate") for X¹ Let's hope! ;-)

My apologies if this has already been asked a billion times, but is there any idea as to when Lollipop is coming out for the first gen, AT&T Moto X? The update site doesn't give any specific dates, but I want sure if people have heard anything outside of that.

So excited! 🙋 🍭

To be perfectly honest, I'm not entirely sure what exactly the function of the app is...

A widget with headlines for android? I'm not sure if that's quite what the point of the app is, but it would still be useful.

I'm looking to learn how to code for iOS and maybe OS X apps, even if I don't do so professionally just yet. I already have some background in HTML and CSS (very minimal experience, but I do know my way around), and I've also started to learn a bit of JavaScript as well.

Eventually, I'd like to make it to Swift, but I'm not sure what steps I should take—what languages or concepts should I learn before I get to that level? What exercises should I do?

I already know that I have to download the SDK and Xcode (the latter which I already have), but correct me if I'm wrong or need additional programs. Thanks!

moto x HELP!  - 
 
I have a first gen Moto X... The past few weeks I haven't been able to connect to my home WiFi network, even though my other devices still pick it up. I've tried turning the phone on and off and turning the WiFi on and off in settings, but nothing works. I know it's quite open ended but does anybody have a potential solution?

Clear all the things. Reboot all the things. That fixes most problems like this. Especially if nothing changed between the "it's working" and "it's not working" phases. I've previously had connection trouble after brief power outages, but not with my X1.

Remember Everything

The Visitor Center itself is a beautiful structure that is sure to stun people before they even step into the main building of the U.S. Capitol. If this review were money, then the Capitol would be priceless; it can't even be reviewed because of its grandeur. The gorgeous building is symmetrical everywhere and is studded with works of art at every turn. It definitely doesn't feel "fake" like some other governmental places do; one can easily tell that this really is a seat of government. This should be one of your top priorities when visiting Washington.

For those who have ever been to one of the many U.S. Mint branches across the country, this is about 110% better. Whereas there almost everything is automated and boring, this one is chock-full of people making the green stuff. My group's particular tour guide kind of sounded like a robot from saying the tour hundreds of times before, but was nice nonetheless. Also, it's a pretty nice touring facility but might need a tiny bit of revamping. Not an absolute must-see in D.C., but still one of the better things in the city.

This beach has a great, unobstructed view of the horizon, clear water, and a great sidewalk/path. Don't be fooled by any surrounding beaches that have industrial structures around them, because Calf Pasture is virtually sealed off from all of that. My only complaint is that there were quite a few rocks which eventually hurt my feet, so I would suggest bringing shoes. Nevertheless, they'll probably turn over some new sand in the summer which will make things better (I went in spring). Overall, great day trip location.

A wonderful place for discovering scientific concepts with a gorgeous facility and great service; all in all, it's a fun place to bring family and friends to. The building that it's located in in Hartford is extremely modern and well-designed, and it is always kept nice and clean. All the staff there is very nice and helpful, and you can definitely notice a lot less stress than you might experience at a place with snappier people. The exhibits are also nice. My only concern with them is that they aren't quite as hands-on as some museums, but there's still quite a few that are. While the CT Science Center is definitely intended for children, it's by no means an inappropriate place for older kids and adults. I definitely recommend it!
