Nothing that we should panic about, but I did find interesting. 
The Tennessee Department of Health received confirmation that the first person in the state that tested positive for the Zika virus disease is from East Tennessee.

I got to really put the Nexus 6 camera to test today. These are all from  Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies and are only about 1/3 of what I snapped.

I pretty much agree with this article. I own a couple of tablets both iOS and Android. While great at consuming content, they both suck at creating it. Slapping a bluetooth keypad on one, is at best an inferior laptop experience. Microsoft's surface Pro goes a long way toward fixing many tablet problems, but at the end of the day, a large phone is still with you, when your tablet is at home, on your coffee table. And if you are home, it's hard to beat today's laptop computers.
Tablet sales have been declining for some time. We take a look at what is killing tablets and whether or not they can ultimately be saved.

Blah blah blah and all the smartphones and tablets will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll whisper "no."

I love Swiftkey!  
Microsoft is buying SwiftKey, the developer of a popular software keyboard for Android and iOS phones -- even though it already has its own software keyboard, Word Flow.

In this guy's opinion, Apple really has a challenge going forward. They don't offer anything low end. The only places that are really seeing large growth in mobile are in places such as India. And Google has made an Operating System just for these developing countries called Android One. While the iPhone has been a huge success in America, and has recently seen growth in China, worldwide, iPhones sit at about 14% of all smartphones sold.Android powered phones are around 80% of all smartphones sold. As the adoption of smartphones slows, it will be interesting to see how Apple addresses this issue. I don't think Apple can sell enough overpriced Apple Watches to offset the problem either. I do think we will see Apple TV re-invented to be more of a Netflix type service with Exclusive and original content.
Smartphone shipment growth was at its lowest ever in the fourth quarter of 2015 on account of the maturity of major markets like China and consumer concerns about the global economy, according to a research firm.

Apple has never cared about widespread adoption. Rather, they create strong brand appeal at a high price. That didn't really work in the PC market and it won't work now. Phone sales aren't the important revenue stream and app sales aren't much more. Advertising is the big one and your advertising platform is worth less if you're a niche player. Like Apple.

I'll be streaming from my Roku. 
This Sunday, cord cutters around the country will participate in the grandest tradition of the year: trying to figure out how to stream the Super Bowl online. Well, we have your answer, sports fans. Here’s how to stream the big game at home over the internet, to whatever device you want to watch on.

You think that having this will require registerring as well along with registration of drones? They can make a lot of money doing that. :/

Don't read the reviews. One user cites the apps shortcomings on location based data as a reason for having shit themeselves.

Brian Blau, an analyst with Gartner, noted that Facebook has done well figuring out its advertising solutions and its mobile efforts have connected perfectly with them.
Facebook's efforts to figure out how users want to connect when they're on the move is paying off. The social network's latest earnings report show that mobile is carrying the company, pushing it to record fourth-quarter results.

Introduction
I'm a middle aged guy who finds much pleasure in today's technology.  I follow the news and trends around mobile technology.  By day I work for a large Chemical company, and by night I play bass in a Christian Rock band called Exit 33. When time allows, I enjoy camping with my wife, Kayaking, and riding my Scooter.
