I needed to get my thoughts out about the future of the LDS Church and BSA - it's NOT about the LGBT decision. Please read all the way through:

Hp is sending me a new Dremel 3D Printer and an upgrade to the HP Sprout to review. What should I make with the two? I can 3D scan AND print! Here's the printer:

Ugh - this makes me so mad. I have over 100,000 followers on Google+ and still see engagement there. It makes me feel like all the hours I've put into this are a complete waste. I even wrote the first published books on Google+, was invited to the first Google I/O to meet with their marketing team, and after that, nothing ever again from Google.

Google has serious ADD when it comes to products. There are people investing serious time in these things and they keep pulling the rug out from under us.

Hate Google+? You won't need it to log into other Google services anymore. In a blog post, Google also says the entire experience will be more focused, which will send ripple effects ...

I've had several rugs pulled out from under me.  There was Google checkout, for which I spent considerable time writing integration code for an ecommerce web site.  Then there was iGoogle, for which I wrote a whole framework for supporting iGoogle gadgets.  

As a user, I've been tripped up a few times too, with: Google Reader, Knol, and Google Buzz, just to name a few.

Watching #io15 live online just makes me mad they didn't let me come (for the 3rd year in a row). Google's got to start working on better relationships with their brand ambassadors.

I'll state it here to be clear: I believe in evolution. I support removal of marriage from government, and equal rights for all ("gay marriage" is a moot point for me, but as long as it's part of government I think there is some validity to allowing such for all). I love and support my gay brothers and sisters and fight for them. I support EVERYONE's right to believe and live how or what they may. I am a staunch supporter of the Boy Scouts of America. I am also an active, temple attending, believing, "calling"-fulfilling Mormon.

I also believe the LDS Church is lead, through revelation, by imperfect people who DO make mistakes. (see Doctrine and Covenants 1 at http://scriptures.lds.org) That doesn't mean I get in their way, and those I've served with know I'm one of the best supporters they could ask for. Even when I disagree, I support them and get the job done. And yes, I may occasionally, when it doesn't get in the way, discuss my own personal confusions publicly - I feel everyone learns better that way, and I am often humbled by the conversations of both my Mormon as well as non-Mormon friends.

If you don't like any of these things or are offended by any of these things or beliefs, please UNFOLLOW. I am also happy to block to make that easier (seriously, it's nothing personal and some times necessary - say hi to me next time you see me and let's talk in real life!). As long as you don't judge me I welcome ALL conversation on the subject and love to talk about it. My fellow Mormons would call me a bit liberal. My fellow liberals would call me conservative. I'm just who I am and deserve no judgement.

As Elder D Todd Christofferson said (member of the Quorum of 12 Apostles in the LDS Church), "there is a diversity of opinion among church members in that regard and you know that’s always been true I guess on many subjects over the years over the decades and we don’t have qualms about that. We urge people to take part, for example, in the political process and we don’t tell them how to vote or who to vote for but that they exercise their own good judgment and make their decisions. Obviously that’s different than when somebody attacks the church, you know per se, or tries to hinder its work. But anybody pursuing their view of what ought to happen in the community – that’s what we hope to see, frankly. In a way you saw it here in the legislature. The vast majority of legislators in Utah are members the LDS Church and you see a wide variety of opinions in them and among them as you do in our at the federal level in the US and in other countries. So if we’re trying to get everybody to sing the same song and say exactly the same thing we’re failing miserably, but you saw that in this case as in most I hope people do work to come together on what can be the best solution for everybody." (http://thoughtsonthingsandstuff.com/christofferson-intervi…/)
For my fellow Mormons, here is something to help you come to terms with "me":

THIS IS NOT AN ANTI-ANDROID POST*

Now that I've got that out of the way, I returned my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and exchanged it for the iPhone 6 Plus. First of all, I still LOVE Android - the core, stock Android experience that Nexus models and Cyanogen Mod provide. The Galaxy Note 4 is not this. Here are my main reasons I switched back to iOS, albeit pretty quickly:

1. The Lock Screen: Even after the latest upgrade of Android, the default lock screen on the Galaxy Note 4 barely gives me any information. I rely on my iPhone regularly to quickly glance and see what updates I'm getting via email, Facebook, etc. and I don't have to unlock the phone to tell what those are. This is a huge time saver, and a great way to receive contextual updates, where I am, glance at them, and know what they are with little effort.

2. Battery Life: With all the default settings turned on the phone was still dead by 2pm. With battery saving mode on that gave me another 2 or 3 hours, but slowed down the phone significantly. My iPhone 6 Plus still has 60% battery life with all default settings, and it's 1am the following day after it was charged as I type this.

3. User experience: The Samsung experience is cluttered! I get a headache when I try to comprehend everything I have to do or consume on the screen. And not too important, but the lock screen default wallpaper looks like broken glass on a phone. It's stressful! There are icons on 3 or 4 different screens by default, weather, time, only 4 spots to put things on the main screen by default. Also, I ended up having to spend several hours just configuring things on the phone to get them back to a smoother experience.

4. It's choppy: the phone experience, even out of the box, is much choppier than my iPhone 6 was, and even more choppy than my 6 plus (still not sure why the 6 plus seems faster than the 6 but it does). It takes a second or so to open up screens and apps, and the back of the phone seems hot almost all the time. Despite having a slower processor, my iPhone 6 and 6 plus just don't do this.

5. Backups: someone suggested I backup, do a factory reset, and restore to get it performing the way it should again. Okay, but boy was that a mistake. Doing so, yeah, it restored my settings, but after spending hours organizing all my apps into folders and where I wanted them on the screen, a restore didn't restore where the apps were, and I couldn't figure out a single place to make this happen! Instead, I took the phone back, got the iPhone 6 Plus, did a restore on that, and within minutes I had all my old folders and apps downloading and installing the way they were before.

Now some things I liked - I really liked the stylus, big screen, and the app that opens for the stylus when you hover it above the screen. The ability to draw and type using that was very useful. I mentioned I do like the core Android experience, but I wasn't about to void the warranty just to get Cyanogen Mod, and then lose that stylus experience. I DON'T like any of the default Samsung apps.

I really love my iPhone 6 Plus now. It seems faster than the iPhone 6 (even though it's not supposed to be). The battery life is amazing. And a little-known fact about it is the speaker and sound on the phone, I think due to the size, are much better and more clear. I'm very impressed so far, and realized I really like this larger form factor.

So there you have it. I'll probably try the Samsung experience again some time, and it is better now than when I spent 6 months on the Galaxy SIII, but for now if you ask me I'd choose between either the iPhone 6 Plus or one of the stock Android phones such as the Nexus, or rooted phone if you're looking for one or the other. I love Android, but I don't love the Samsung Galaxy Note 4! (sorry Chris Voss)

* Disclosure: I have NO cell phone providers or manufacturers as clients - this post is entirely unbiased and uninfluenced by any monetary gain smile emoticon I still love Android. I also love iOS. I sort of love Windows 8. I really loved WebOS! (RIP - I'm a big Andy Grignon fanboy)
Took the plunge. Let's try a new adventure with the Note 4! #socialgeek
