This is a "before" and after picture.  Moto X, using Auto HDR (didn't flash this time)  The first picture is after snapseed.  The second picture is the normal version.  Both were "enhanced" by G+ on uploading.  

Unrelated: I love taking pictures of this building.

The sky in the fixed pic, and the grass in the "normal" picture.  The sky is brilliant blue today.

Really happy with how this shot turned out.  Taken with my Moto X, slight processing in Snapseed.

I read an article recently that challenged me to think of a list of things I wanted to do, of things I wanted to be.  So I made one.

One of my goals is to write more, and I'll be using this as a springboard for posts when there isn't something that's really on my mind.  So it's like a spoiler..  and we know how much the internet loves spoilers, right?  

What is on your list?  Let me know below, or in a blog entry of your own (link it here), or just send me a message sometime, and we can talk about it.

The ability to snooze emails makes some of the glitches in mailbox more than tolerable. This is a pretty cool app.

The Future is Data, Redux

One of the most interesting things I saw in this whole "do away with overages" announcement from T-Mobile was their "Average adult smartphone usage." Which they pegged at 1.5gigs.  I don't know if this number is 100% accurate, it is a PR release after all.  But, let's assume they're being as honest when ATT and Verizon gave their numbers a few years back.

Remember when AT&T went to tiered data and they said that it wasn't an issue because the average user consumed "only" 200mb and almost everyone is under 500mb.  Verizon quickly followed suite, citing much the same data.  

Now, I don't think they were lying.  Remember, this was before LTE had a big push and before Google Play Music, and iTunes Match, and HD smartphones streaming HD videos.  This was before people like my parents had smartphones.

Back then, I said it was "Only the beginning" and that we were going towards a data world, one where minutes, texts, and etc were secondary to the data cap, and that carriers would push how amazing data was even as they limited the amount of that data.

1.5 gigs.

In just a few years.  They went from "practically everyone" under 500mbs to the average user at 1.5 gigs.  And this is just the start.  Verizon is rolling out Voice over LTE, other carriers will soon as well.  Apple, Google, Facebook, and dozens of other companies are experimenting with consumer friendly VoIP and texting over data.  Even carriers are starting to tout these features.

This is why carriers are trying so hard to make sure Net Neutrality doesn't happen (so they can charge a premium for access to Hangouts for example).  This is why YOU should care about how your carrier handles data.  I'm not saying that +T-Mobile is a super hero and +Sprint +AT&T and #Verizon Wireless (why u no page verizon?) are villains.  They're all in it for the profit.  They will all change their plans if they see that's where the money is.

So, show them where the money is.  The future is Data.  Let's make sure it's a future we like living in, because 1.5 gigs is still a VERY small amount, especially once carriers start selling hotspots for home use (Like Verizon already is).

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you.”

This song is amazing.  I bought it.  So if you're in my circles, enjoy the free play.  If you're not in my circles, check a bit back in my stream for the youtube link.

This song is seriously all the feels right now.

I saw the SHIELD episode Tuesday and Winter Soldier just yesterday. So I had some of it spoiled, but it was still an excellent movie.

Story
Tagline
Tech Enthusiast, Part-Time Writer, Coffee Professional
Introduction
I'm a Coffee Drinker, Book Reader, and Tech Enthusiast 20Something trying to find my place in a world where only one of the three is popular.

I'm the oldest of three brother's and a native of that place we call the "Philly Burbs" because it's too annoying to take the time explaining which of the 5000 townships my house is actually in.

I'm an Alumnus of Indiana Wesleyan University where I received my Bachelor's in Marketing, a minor in Writing, and an appreciation for changing scenery since Indiana was so flat.

I like talking with people, finding out what they enjoy and what motivates them to do the things they do.  People think I'm a quiet person, but that's only because I don't really like crowds.  I'll strike up a conversation with practically anyone if given the chance, and I love getting to know new people.

I'm still trying to find those opportunities that will let me fill out this section with amazing stories, but I hope to be forced to edit this for those stories rather soon.  

Possible Circles to put me in:
-Tech
-Coffee Lovers
-Gamer
-Political
-Android
-Ingress

The views expressed here are solely my own and not meant to be representative of my employer, my family, my country, fellow tech geeks, or other people who share my name.
