My social stream over the last year or so:
"We want more updates to our Android devices! We want the latest one, with that AI assistant that works in the background all the time doing stuff (but you can turn it off if you don't want it) and to hell with any bugs that might be in the software, those will get fixed and we're okay with Google treating their users like beta testers. We want more Android updates and we want them immediately, even if our devices function perfectly fine with the OS they have now!"

Followed immediately by:
"We don't want Windows 10! The AI assistant is always there, running in the background and taking resources and we're going to ignore the fact that you can turn it off just like Google Now. It has bugs, why can't a company that size fix these bugs?! There's an app where we can complain directly to Microsoft about issues but we don't want to do that! I'm tired of receiving notifications for a free OS update, why can't they let me just keep Windows 7, my device worked perfectly fine on Windows 7 (ignoring all the security patches I'm not getting, of course)! How dare they notify me of an update. In my fake rage, I've also completely forgotten that Android update notifications can't be dismissed at all until I accept the update but I'm gonna be mad that I have to exit out of a notification every now and then from Microsoft! We want no updates ever! To hell with this company I have an obvious hatred of for arbitrary reasons after they've supported my outdated machine with its outdated OS three or four times longer than Android OEMs do!"

And I'm over here on perfectly functioning Windows 10 and Android Marshmallow devices, enjoying my life, and being all like...

The latest #AAPodcast is live! This week we talk about the Sony Xperia X, the Moto Z, how silly it is that OEMs keep using X and Z as letters. We also talk about how apps aren't really dying, Name McNameface, and lots of non-tech stuff as we goof around and get caught up after a few weeks of not having "normal" podcasts. I hope everyone enjoys it!

Panelists this week: +Jonathan Feist +Nirave Gondhia +Andrew Grush, Andrew Grush's kid, and myself :D
Our best wishes go out to Josh, his family and his neighbors as they deal with a forest fire dangerously close to their homes in California. Jonathan Feist leads a wildly off topic episode while Joe Hindy, Andrew Grush and Nirave Gondhia help keep the laughs rolling. We eventually get down to the leathery hot mess that is the naming schemes of the X and Z for Sony and Motorola. The Sony Xperia X line, as well as the Lenovo Motorola Moto Z line...

If I had to describe Final Fantasy Brave Exvius in one sentence:

"It's like Brave Frontier but better, more complex, and more enjoyable in every conceivable way."

First freemium game I ever played that didn't feel like a Freemium game. Even the soundtrack is good. <3 If this thing hits the old Freemium Wall (where the game starts to really suck unless you buy stuff with real money), I might actually start openly weeping. I want the whole game to be as good as the first 6 or so hours so far has been.

Well, everyone else is doing this "share your first post" thing, so I thought I would too, all the way back on July 8th, 2011. It would be a while before I got really into G+, but I remember being so excited to get an invite and join into what was, at the time, a whole community of tech nerds and like-minded individuals. That was 5 months before I became a blogger which means, essentially I've spent my whole career here lol.

My how G+ has...grown...? I dunno, it's not the same anymore but that's okay.

While I was at it, I surfed down through my proverbial life and found the very day I became the "app guy" at Android Authority. That would be Feb 5th, 2013 (I worked as an editor and news writer before that) with my first app review: Zombie Highway. Come to find out that at 120k views, it's the fifth or sixth most popular video I ever uploaded O.o Here's the post to that awful, awful review I did that should've solidified my future as a night-shift grocery store stock boy (but you all forgave me, for some reason :P). I need to get back to doing app/game reviews again :D:

I really need to step it up, ffs lol.
My first Google Plus thing! Woot!

Just came back from a 4-1 deficit to actually win a Trials of Osiris match in +Destiny the Game​. We stayed alive until the end and then used the zone capture to eliminate them lol.

That will never happen again. We were so outclassed.

Hello everyone, I'm Joe Hindy and I am a professional blogger.

I am currently the Android Authority App Guy (apps editor) as well as a member of our stellar YouTube team and weekly podcast. You're probably here because you know me from that. If not, welcome!

My interests vary greatly and include pretty much everything except sitting in traffic. And sometimes, if there's something good on the radio, even sitting in traffic isn't so bad.

My current Android devices include the HTC One M9, the NVIDIA Shield Tablet, the LG G Watch, and the Nexus 5. I also own the Xbox One and 360, a Nintendo 3DS, and a Sony PSP. I'm also a Fitbit owner. 

I have been a blogger since late 2011. I started on YouTube in 2013. I have a lot left to learn in both areas and all maturely presented feedback is welcome.

The staff there is rude, dumb, stoned, or some mixture of all three. Ordered a #2 with NO mayo or onions. They gave me mayo and onions. Got a fresco sauce on the side for fries and they didn't include it. That place is a freaking mess. Make sure you check your ENTIRE order before leaving the parking lot. Seriously.

I usually only come here for lunch and their early and mid shift employees seem to have a decent grapple on things. Their evening shift are a bunch of lazy, stoner idiots who seem to represent every argument the Republicans have against raising minimum wage to $15/hr. Despite being one of 3 cars in the drive thru, I was there for almost 20 minutes and two employees were outside smoking and goofing around. I'm certain they rang up my order a la carte instead of meals (showed up on the screen as such and they assured me it was right). To top it off, they got my order entirely wrong and when I asked the guy for lots of ketchup (we had 3 combo meals), he gave us 3 packets of ketchup. Also, the food was old (the chicken patties were dark brown and dried out like you see when they spend several hours under a heat lamp). If you go here, do it for breakfast or lunch. Avoid the evening shift like the plague unless you're really desperate (like drunk walking from the strip club across the street or something) or just go a couple miles to the one on Dublin Granville Rd. There's also one 2 miles away in Westerville. Take the extra 10 minutes and get the right food. If you do come here after 5pm, expect subpar, lukewarm food, the wrong food, to be charged too much for it, and to wait eternity for it. Read the other reviews, my experience is not something that rarely happens here. You don't get a 2.8 rating (as of December 2015) with a recommendation to go somewhere else when you do a good job. This place sucks.

Every time I come in here, there is a new crew of people working. I have to wonder what's going on behind the scenes that's making everyone quit this place over and over again. In any case, the ever changing line of workers that passes through this place means everyone is perpetually new and it makes for a slow experience. The company really needs to look into why they can't hold on to employees at this store. As an add-on to Darryn's comment. I'm given to understand that Tosha is their general manager. If she's like that to customers, I can't imagine her treating her employees better. Maybe that's why they keep quitting and no one with experience is ever behind the counter.

Good store, most people are friendly. Their inventory is kind of hit or miss sometimes. Some days they'll have bread and milk, other days they won't. Also, the store closes an hour earlier than it says on Google Maps.
