Can we have a small-screen version of the Moto X (4.3" 720p) with 128GB storage avaialable on launch from any carrier? 

If it has a great camera and doesn't turn into a lag brick after 6 months, I'll trade in my iPhone 5s for one.

If you could ask #Moto anything, what would it be? Share by tagging your questions with #AskMoto

Goodbye Google+ Photos, hello +Google Photos!

In May, we launched Google Photos as the home for all your photos and videos. With Google Photos you can store unlimited high quality photos and videos for free, find photos fast, and see them organized by what matters to you. Plus, you can bring moments to life and share anywhere with anyone.

In an effort to ensure everyone has the best photos experience we can deliver, on August 1st we’ll start to shut down Google+ Photos -- initially on Android, and soon thereafter on the Web and iOS.

If you’re still using Google+ Photos, now is a great time to make the switch. You may have seen a prompt in Google+ Photos on Android with a link to download the new Google Photos. Don’t worry, all your photos and videos will still be saved and available after you switch to the new, stand-alone Google Photos app. With the new app you’ll still be able to backup, edit, and share your photos and videos, with unlimited storage, automatic organization, and more.

Download the new Google Photos today for uninterrupted access to all your photos, videos and albums.  If you don’t update to the new Google Photos, Google+ Photos on Android will soon stop working, but your photos and videos will still remain safely stored and available via or for export using Google Takeout.

Get the Google Photos app for Android

Christian. Husband. Dad. Geek. Traveler. Vizsla chair.
Josh was born in Topeka, Kansas to Mike and Colleen on the "coldest day of the century" for the city, a chilling -23 degrees F. He has a younger sister, Cara, and has always had a dog around for a four-legged companion.

Personal Life
Active as a boy, he could often be seen riding his bike with friends, playing around at the pool, or hosting living room wrestling tournaments and boxing matches. Weather not permitting, the latest installment of a Final Fantasy game could always keep him entertained.

When it came time for school, he excelled in technical subjects throughout primary and secondary, and always balanced these well with art and music, learning to play various saxophones and brass instruments. Soccer and football took up extra time until marching band came along in high school, so he found his physical outlet running sprints, even going to state his senior year as the starting runner in the 4x100 relay.

During college he was active in a campus ministry, interning for a summer and leading a number of small groups. He was a founding member of the church's board of directors, serving as secretary for eight years. Today, he continues in a role of coordinating and leading worship and overseeing the web and social media activity for the church of 100 members.

In 2003, he met Shana, who moved from the East coast to pursue her MFA at KU, and they began dating in early 2004 - and were married by the end of the year! They enjoy traveling the world and relaxing on beaches with their friends as often as possible.

Recently, they welcomed their son Sabin into the world and are tremendously excited to see things in new ways with him. He's the first grand baby on both sides, so he is in for an exceptional amount of attention.They are all living in Lawrence, Kansas with their dog, Zoe.

Education and Career

Off to an early start, he began taking college courses at Washburn University while still at Topeka West High School, where he graduated in 1997. He continued at Washburn for three years, studying Physics and Mathematics. After participating in an internship at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory during the summer of 1999, he decided to transfer the following year to study Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kansas. Coursework concluded in the Fall of 2002 and he graduated with the class of 2003 from both schools with two Bachelor of Science degrees. Currently, he is just two classes from wrapping up his MBA at Baker University, which will finish at the end of April 2015.

Hired in June of 2002 as an Applications Engineer at Grundfos Pumps Corporation in Olathe, he caught on fast and helped the group serve customers around the USA. Three years later, the company opened a local division for R&D and he joined two others to help build a regional headquarters for product development. After five years, he shifted gears to focus on customer insights, product usability and design, where he helped bring better usability and experiences into existing and future products. The company decided in late 2014 to close the division to focus on other strategies, allowing him to have extra time at home taking care of his son until the next opportunity opens.
