Looking forward to this! 
Back at Google I/O 2016, Google took the wraps off of Android Wear 2.0. The Mountain View company has added a lot of new features in this version, but one thing we’ve noticed is that — despit…

Anyone here with the SW3 also stream music from it to BT headphones noticed that once in a while tracks just skip to the next one mid-song? This is using the Sony Music/Walkman app. I also have a Z5 Compact it's paired to.

I primarily listen to music from the watch while running (and using Ghostracer for tracking). This isn't consistent on every song, which makes it confusing.

The only other thing I'm wondering, but am not sure how to confirm, is if some tracks just aren't being fully synced to the watch. There's no way to see track length on the watch with the Sony Music app. Any ideas or pointers on what to try are welcome.

Follow up: This week, I had a small firmware update for my phone and had also resynced a playlist to the watch for my long run. Over the almost 2 hours, I only had one random song skip/go to next. I'm suspecting the sync was an issue. Next testing steps is to just listen to music without using Ghostracer running at the same, along with testing out Google Play Music for music playback instead of Sony's Music/Walkman app.

Yep, ordered a Pixel C because 1) 25% Developer discount and 2) because I can and 3) I kinda needed/wanted a new tablet.

Pixel C tablet is designed from the ground up to be ultra portable with a flexible aluminum keyboard so you can work or play wherever you go - however you want!

So this started happening to me this morning. Some Google searches showed a handful of others with this weird half screen issue (same side for the few photos I saw). After some troubleshooting with Google live chat, I'm getting a replacement unit. It should be new since they had me order it, but they will refund that charge once the RMA is received.

FWIW, I was also experiencing the random reboots others have posted about starting after the May security patch, so hopefully this new unit is free of all hardware problems.

Post header image added mostly because 30 Rock. I’ve been spending a fair amount of time recently thinking about the dynamics of relationships, specifically between those who are single and those who are married (or dating for a long time) and the stuff that arises in that space. The obviousness of give and take and compromising…

A great store in downtown Naperville if you're in search for a good selection of loose leaf teas. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and will brew up a cup of something you're interested in. Will definitely come back to try out more teas!
