Orthopedic pet bed? Really? This makes me want to post pictures of the places my cat chooses to sleep.

For the last few day's I've been sitting on the sidelines listening to all the comments about Allo. Reception has been... mixed. I must admit my own feelings have been somewhat mixed as well. But I've realized something about Allo: it's not a messaging app, it's a container for messaging apps.

OK -- first things first. Google Assistant is cool. It's not perfect. Really it's not more capable than Google Now. But it's interface is great... the natural language thing works. Sure, sometimes it doesn't understand what I'm saying, but that's true of my human friends as well. It's not going to win a Turing award, but I still talk to it the way I would a human. That's cool.

Second, what's up with SMS? It's weird right? Nope. Google has a master plan. When you message an Android user who doesn't have Allo installed, they still get a notification and can respond from within that notification. This is window into Google's vision for Android Instant Apps. Imagine if What's App, FB messanger, Slack, SMS apps and others implemented this feature. (edit: this is happening -- http://www.androidauthority.com/google-app-preview-messaging-718083/ -- heard it hear first :) Now imagine the next step... display the messages inside Allo.

My guess is that in the near future you'll be able to pick the messenger app you want to use based on features rather than community.

Clearly we're not there yet. Allo is a baby step toward a grand vision and we've been promised new features in the weeks ahead. I was disappointed in some of the features (or lack of as the case may be) but I'm willing to hope.

Don't let us down Google.

Huffington Post doesn't seem to get it... Kid Rock has just as much right to voice his opinion as Colin Kaepernick. Both choose to be disrespectful, and neither seem to be offering positive suggestions. That's sad, not criminal.

Personally, I think Kid Rock's statement was the more positive one... Just like the scene in Boondock Saints when they explain the meaning of "erin go bragh"
