If the Empulse TT looks familiar, there's a good reason: it's a refreshed and rebadged version of the Brammo Empulse. Victory bought Brammo's motorcycle business earlier this year, taking its...

Yes! 😀
It's so intuitive and simple that you could use the Drivemode app for Android while blindfolded, but don't try that while driving.

Sorry, tech press. Google+ is alive and well.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/Z6sQ6w )

A chorus of tech journalists this week is saying that Google is phasing out its social network, Google+.

Where did they get this juicy nugget of information? Well, they made it up. And I'll tell you why.

But first, let's look at what the press is saying and compare that with reality:

Introduction
Currently an exceptionally talented Virtual Executive Assistant (20 years support experience, 14 years supporting C-Level executives desk-side/in-office and virtually).

Resume on request.

Can be found all over the web by searching for "jim12957". ... (I've been online using that 'i.d.' since 1986, so there's a lot). :)

One day at a time. Live life for all it's worth (you only get one). Plan what you can, take the rest on faith. Learn. Play. Love. Live.

I, my wife and our oldest son are currently using Samsung Note 2's (Stock, 4.4), I and my wife are using Nexus 7's (2012, Stock, 4.4) and there's a Chromecast plugged into the flat screen by which we watch the world and entertain ourselves.

We're cord cutters (haven't paid for TV in over 2 years). Thanks to laptops with HDMI ports, and memberships with Netflix, Hulu Plus, Google Play, Amazon Prime, VUDU, Aereo and select others, we have all the on-demand and live material we could ever possibly consume, all for a recurring monthly cost of $40.00 U.S.

Beautiful wife, two wonderful stepsons.
