Summary:Let's go behind the specs and find out everything you need to know about getting Windows 10 running on a PC, but were too afraid (or confused) to ask.

I've been saying this for awhile now. Win10 is a game changer for Microsoft. It won't happen over night but there will be a shift and Microsoft will be seeing real gains in the coming 2 years. 
1) Microsoft is being describe as the HOT company. The Google of old. 
2) Nadella (sp?) Knows what he is doing.
3) Win10 bridges the divide. It makes one app work across the board with minor changes.
4) Google is about to be killed in search on the PC side. There is no reason to install Chrome or even navigate to Google with Cortana/Spartan. Google makes 99% revenue from ads, while mobile is the new ad frontier, the loss of desktop will hurt.
5) Google is getting the backlash now. Look at the original Hangouts post for what they consider is "new"(yesterday) . The people are calling it lazy and not what they have been wanting.
6) Android has nothing to offer this year in hardware. Look at Samsung and HTC... Nothing really new or innovative. A Haiwai Nexus 2015??? Yeah, that's a seller (sarcasm).
7) Personal assistants that cross from desktop to phone and offer a " real" experience are going to trump cards that are impersonal and a lack of personality personality or personal abilities. Simply offering up relevant info won't cut it because Cortana and even Siri are gaining on doing that. 

on the flipside

1) Variables such as I/O 2015 are huge. Either Google brings more to the table than cartoon design or they risk losing core consumers. 
2) Google needs to focus... right now they are so ufocused that things are starting to feel like they are just throwing anything at the wall to see if it sticks. 
Gmail - Inbox - Contacts (all email UI's)
Google Music Streaming - Youtube Music Key
Google Wallet - Android Pay
Chromecast - Android TV
It almost feels like Google wants to be 2 companies... Google and Android. Never mind their pursuit of another revenue stream through wild and wacky ideas like Internet Drones/ balloons, driverless cars, AR glasses... that's just more media spotlight to take peoples attention off the disarray at the core.

 Android will be the dominant phone OS for several years to come but just like IOS, it will lose that spot. Whether IOS or even Windows replaces it, is not a given, but we can be sure that no company takes the top spot and can maintain it forever. It just won 't happen. 

 Microsoft with Win10 is going to be VERY exciting. If they stay away from exclusives, keep it carrier unlocked, and keep that flagship price below other flagships then they have a real chance of creeping back up the market share ladder. 
Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 OS hasn't taken the world by storm, but its successor, Windows 10, is off to an encouraging start even before its release.

No, apparently the trailer is only the first 2 acts. Everything changes in the second half, which is not shown. But if it is as this article says... Lame...

Android needs an easy way to set a ring tone. This is insane. 
I buy the song on Google Play music, download it to my phone, use a downloaded file manager to get to it and then find that Google Play Music does not download it as an MP3... you know.. the standard open file for music. 
So now, I'll have to download it via music manager, upload it to Drive, and download it to my phone in MP3 format. 
Then use the file manager to copy and paste it into place.

 I don't think this is going to be a big seller in the States. The core Nexus buyers will get it... They'll buy a rock if you label it Nexus... but I'm not sure the general public will care enough to buy one. I have yet to see a Nexus 6 in the wild even... I have seen several Moto X's now though. 
The Chinese manufacturer is rumored to be making one of two Android flagships due later this year.

If you like beer then you can't pass up a SweetWater 420 while in Atlanta. And if you have time, definitely check out the brewery tour and tastings that take place at the brewery. The tour is informative and the tastings allow you to try several of the different brews that SweetWater offers. This is the BEST beer in the South East if not the whole United States!!!

Without a doubt this is the BEST Pizza in Atlanta. The sauce is amazing, the cheese tastes good and stretches, and every bite is tasty. Call in orders are usually ready in 15 to 20 minutes. The place is small but it is a good setting to go watch a game, eat some pizza, and have a SweetWater 420. This is my go-to Pizza joint. The others just don't compare to Mo's.

This is Pub food at its best. Walking in, you are greeted with a dark hard wood styling and an atmosphere that makes one think that this is what a pub should look like. There are plenty of good brews to choose from and the food is always excellent. Get the pretzel bread and cheese dip, so good it cannot be passed up!!!

I love it that Willy's is now on Briarcliff Road/ North Druid Hills. Without a doubt, Willy's is the BEST place in Atlanta to get a Super Burrito. I call them super because these things are HUGE. And they are filled with FRESH ingredients. A minor point, Willy's accessorizes their burrito's with complimentary chips.... unlike some of the other places that charge you for them. This particular Willy's also has a fresh tortilla maker so that's always nice to see in action. The dining area is clean and this being one of the more recent additions to Willy's, everything is new. It's a good atmosphere for a big burrito!!!

This is the BEST Costco in Atlanta... hands down. I'm here at least 2 to 3 times per week. The lines never get to the point where they are super congested and when they do get busy, they open more checkout lanes. The great thing I like to see is that the personnel does not revolve here. I still see the same faces from back when this Costco opened. The staff is friendly and always helpful. Let's also not forget that the gas prices here are some of the lowest ITP.

Do you want the BEST BBQ in Atlanta? Then head to Pig-N-Chik. The sandwiches are some of the best BBQ I've ever tasted. You can drink some SweetWater 420 and enjoy some BBQ while watching some sports on the TV's. What more could you ask for? Be prepared though, you will leave with a full stomach and still want to come back again and again.

Finding a good vet can be hard. 3 years after moving to the North side of the city (ITP), we were still taking our furry ones to a vet on the South side. That can become a bit unwieldy though. So I started to look around the area and check out vets closer to home. BuckHaven was great from the very first "interview". They showed us around their clinic and Dr. Mark took the time to talk to us and tell us more about him and what they do. Now we're in the process of transitioning all of our furry ones over to their new vet. If you are in the Buckhead, Brookhaven, Chamblee, or Sandy Springs areas, you should definitely check the BuckHaven Vetrinary Clinic out.
