I have never had a phone do anything like this before.

I had this Nexus 6 in a desk at work for months. I pulled it out to show someone, and it looked like this.

The battery bulged massively and is probably 3 times lager than normal.

I had that happen with my original (2006) MacBook Pro 17". Apple replaced the battery for free, of course. Have never had that happen in any device since! It's definitely a rare thing.

+John McAfee told me not to vote for Hillary. I have to say I agree.

This has the potential to be an awesome turn of events for research, history, and the city of Mountain View.

The era of QWERTY smart phones has ended in my home. 

My wife upgraded from the Samsung Relay to the HTC One, just like I did months ago.  The Doubleshot and Relay are now collecting dust.

I wish I had hope that a decent QWERTY would be sold anytime in the near future.

I will probably be upgrading from the Samsung Relay to the GS5 when it launches (or the Note 3 when I can upgrade for free) and just get a Bluetooth keyboard case... Sad day really. My Nexus 7 has gotten me used to not having the QWERTY if the screen is big enough.

With the government shutdown, it seems apparent the spirit of compromise from the leaders of our democracy may be damaged beyond repair.

There's a full double rainbow in the skies over Mountain View.  We were in the car on El Camino and everyone was driving about 20mph to see it.  Truly awesome sight.

I could not capture a picture of it quickly, but I got this from my patio when I got home.

It's been a long time since I was this excited about a new phone.

I was very excited to see a QWERTY slider with Android coming again, but both the size and the price are disappointing. Also, there is space for a 5th row of keys, why haven't they added it?

It's only three months since I stopped using my beloved Relay 4G and got a Sony Z3 compact. It's ok, but I'd rather want the best of both of them - the performance of the Z3 with the keyboard of the Relay - they're both the same, perfect size (except for thickness, obviously). My wife still uses her Relay, it'll need to die until she lets go of it, and even then she'll ask me to get another one for her.. And I do understand it. Doing SSH with an on-screen keyboard is terrible.

My wife's birthday was this week, and rather than getting a birthday cake, she wanted a king cake from New Orleans this year. 

She ordered it from Haydel's in New Orleans and had it shipped.  It was delicious and authentic.  As a bonus, they tossed in a Bacchus Baby Kong float collector piece.

Hmm. I don't remember those cups. I was too busy being a drunk pink gorilla.

The Rim Fire (in Yosemite) is very sad.  It's painful to watch it unfold.  The lack of containment is very concerning.
