My latest pickup.  Woo-hoo!  And both of these are unlocked 4G devices!
There's something... rather... rare... in this picture. (And this picture is not shopped.)
Can anyone tell me what it is?

Well, if you're a #samsung person of any kind, you'll appreciate how my day went:
1. Upgraded (OTA) my two N9005's to Kitkat (International Note 3s)
2. Upgraded (OTA) my T-Mobile Note 3 to Kitkat.
3. Root my N9005s, right away (gotta have my SD card)
4. Root my T-Mobile Note 3 right away (same deal)
5. Decide, while I'm in there, to root my Note 2 (the one I carry as my primary.)
6. Connect Note 2, open Odin. (see where this is going?)
7. Fail to notice that Note 3 rootkit is still selected in Odin.
8. Click Start.
9. Watch process freeze halfway through.
10. Pull battery, restart process with correct root kit.
11. Amazingly, Note 2 boots.
12. Not amazingly, Note 2 now has no modem or baseband... so no cellular connection at all.
13. Heavy sigh, there goes my day.
14. Spend hours redownloading stock 4.3 for my Note 2.
15. Flash it.
16. Offer many prayers while flashing.
17 After 2 hours, prayers answered. Note 2 back on the air, nothing lost (except time, whew!)
18. Reroot with the correct kit.
19. SAMSUNG FTW!!!!!
Still, panic was the order of the day...

Lol Ohhhhhhh tough ones!
On Moto in Lenovo : It hinges greatly on if they remain separate. Remember what happened to IBM? Lenovo is a black hole for lots of things. One is mobile. Lenovo can't pay people to take their handsets here. They simply don't sell well. Lenovo computers are mainly a professional/student driven market though they've been trying to turn their image with flashy "for people who DO" advertising. If Moto is allowed to run independently from Lenovo it will be a great thing. I see the next few years for Motorola to be really stellar. Possibly coming close to de throning Samsung. Here in the states anyway. They've also acquired a huge patent portfolio in the deal as did Google.

Samsung vs Google? Well mostly these agreements are whispers kept in backrooms but it's clear something has been done. Overall I find Samsung's blatant face slapping to be getting old. Overall it's doing some really shifty stuff behind the scenes effectively using Android to grow a huge market all while perfecting Bada. At the right time Samsung will boot android all together. I think in the future Sammy will split. Stock or near stock phones running Android and phones like the note running Bada.

Time for new tires. Apparently you need something known as "tread" on your tires, and it's absence causes... problems...

Privacy just went out the window... again... this time from the source.
Thanks to +Kirk Larsen for pointing us all to this critical information!
This one is really bad.  If you operate a web server, odds are you're wide open.  Ugh.

Time for some lunch. It's been a weird week, and I'm feeling a little off balance, so I'm picking up a real lunch today instead of grazing at home.

Just typed this up for a good friend, and thought I'd share it with G+.  Wondering what to make for dinner?  On a budget?  Want to do something fun with your family?

Pizza!  Cheap, fun to do with a kid, and comparatively healthy if you use fresh ingredients. 

I keep a bag of flour in the pantry and a jar of yeast and spaghetti sauce in the fridge and we do this every Sunday night:

Preheat your oven on the lowest setting for 2 minutes, then turn the oven off.

Nuke 1/2 cup of water on high for 25 seconds.  Dump it in a mixing bowl.  Add 1 1/4 tsp of yeast and a drop of honey or 1/4 tsp of sugar and stir.  Let the yeast wake up and start to foam for 5 minutes.

Next add 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp of salt, and 1 tbsp of olive oil, stir to combine.  Squish (knead) the dough around for about 5-10 minutes, until all the flour is off the bowl and absorbed into the dough ball.  It should be soft, not hard to push.  Coat the bowl with oil, turn the dough ball around to coat it, cover with plastic wrap, and put in the oven to rise for 30-60 minutes.

Take the dough out, grease a cookie sheet, spread the dough out on the cookie sheet.  Put back in the oven.  If you like a thin crust, let it sit for 1-2 minutes.  If you like a thick crust, let it sit for 10-15 minutes.  Then turn the oven on to 400 degrees and let the crust cook for 5 minutes.

Take it out, cover it with sauce and cheese.  For cheese, I don't keep mozzarella, but my daughter loves those mozzarella cheese sticks, so I dice four of them up into small dice and spread that around for cheese.  Bake at 400 until the cheese is cooked to your preference.  Let it sit and cool, then eat.  YUMMY!
