WeMo and Philips Hue products now work with Amazon Echo!
THIS is what I've been waiting for! I just tried it, and it's amazing. 
"Alexa, turn on stairway light" and almost instantly the light turns on. 

I'll have to check if there's scene support, but already I'm super excited. I don't have any WeMo devices, but here are some things Amazon recommends you try if you do:
"Alexa, turn on the hallway light"
"Alexa, turn on the coffee maker"
"Alexa, dim the living room lights to 20%"
"Alexa, turn on the electric blanket"
"Alexa, turn on the outdoor decorations"

Gah, what vile radioactive creation be this bug praying on us in our staircase? It's like a spider with three dozen legs.
Answer: house centipede. A 'harmless predator'... riiiight.

Centipedes are predators, so if you see a lot of them, keep in mind that they have to be eating something :)

Everyone please go star this issue. 
The fact that the +Android team still hasn't provided a setting to disable heads-up notifications in 5.1 blows my mind.

I'm so spoiled by Amazon Echo, even having to lift my wrist to say 'OK Google" seems like a chore now.

Call me crazy, but this season of Game of Thrones kind of sucks so far.

Given how much success they've had, it would have been cool to see them split the show in two to give each story the time it needs. Like a GOT - Westeros in summer, and a GOT - Dragons in winter

Moto 360 on sale for $179 - - save $70!

The most popular (and arguably the best) Android Wear smartwatch from +Motorola Mobility is on sale at right now only $179. That's incredible. Sure, the Moto 360 might be 7 months old and there's rumors of a second model in the works, but at this price, that's a hell of a deal.

I love my Moto 360 and use it daily.

Some people aren't a fan of the "flat tire" but honestly, I don't even notice it anymore. Plus, certain faces use the black line at the bottom in their designs to make it more appealing.

Curious about the watchfaces we use with Android Wear? Be sure to check out all of the #WatchFaceWednesday  posts from the past few weeks.

When it's $70 I'll buy it, not because is sucks but because I'm cheap and poor 😢

Android Developer & VFX guy
I grew up all over the world, and went to school in places such as Egypt and the Ukraine.  After finishing High School in Florida, I quickly settled on computer animation as my vocation, as it was the perfect blend of arts and science.  Since getting my degree in computer arts, I've been working on movies and commercials in sunny Los Angeles, CA.  In the summer of 2006 I married my wife Megan in a small movie theater in West Liberty, IA.  We're happily married and living with our three cats, Leia, Cloe and Mad Eye Moody, as well as our dog Sirius.
