KitKat has landed! Moto X is brought up to KitKat, just as promised. Now a ton of apps are updating to KitKat versions! The new camera is even better than it was after the last major fix. Excited to try everything else!

Introduction
Hi! I'm Fred Davis... the geeky one, the crazy one, the one who tries to see around corners! I have spent my life trying to help teach people about tech through writing, magazines, books, radio, and TV. I help create startups. Now I'm focused on helping create the future of media.
Bragging rights
I started one of the first commercial plant tissue culture labs when I was 18. I got advanced placement and started college as a senior, getting my degree in a year. I sold my Volvo station wagon in 1977 to buy an Apple ][ ... everyone thought I was crazy. I was editor of the first Apple magazine, A+. I wrote the first book on Desktop Publishing and coined the term. I wrote the first magazine cover story on multimedia. I published one of the most successful CD-ROM titles. I had one the first 100 websites. I live in the future.
