Missed the news that +Synology is doing an AC router now but given my so far flawless experience with their NAS products I'll definetely be looking to this as my next router!
 
“The RT1900ac is a good bet for anybody in the market for a quality router” says +HEXUS who 'approved' our RT1900ac router: http://bit.ly/1o70uVg

RIP Net Neutrality... 😐
 
Verizon launched a sponsored data program today called FreeBee Data. Woof. It'll let content providers pay for you to see content that doesn't count against your data plan. It's probably a bad thing for the open internet.

Verizon hates the idea of net neutrality because, well, money. You already knew that, though. But let’s say for some reason, if you didn’t know that, maybe their new program will finally hammer that idea home. It’s called FreeBee Data and it’s a sponsored data service aimed at creating fast paid-for lanes or bundles of content by marketers …

I have to say I thought it was pretty outrageous that Motorola (hrm Lenovo now hu?) wasn't going to update the carrier versions when they were really only a year old but this is kind of an awesome way of handling it, well for Android geeks at least I guess, fire up the custom ROMs and stick it to Verizon at the same time!
 
Handle your own updates.

Ummmm. I underestimate literally nothing about Rey. She's the Jedi 2015/16 needs!
 
Don’t let appearances fool you, Rey’s speeder can hustle.

In your face Mark Watney! 😀
 
What would you write on the walls of a spacecraft? Unseen for almost 50 years, these markings were made inside the Apollo 11 Command Module “Columbia,” which took astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins to lunar orbit and back. Just last week, our work with the Smithsonian 3D Digitization office gave us the opportunity to take a closer look inside this historic spacecraft and brought to light these handwritten notes. What do we know about these markings and what do we hope to learn? Get the story from curator Allan Needell about the writings on the wall: http://s.si.edu/WritingOnTheWall

Later this year, you too will be able to explore “Columbia” wherever you are via a 3D model on 3d.si.edu. Stay tuned!

The Hunt for Quality SciFi

Been a while since one of these...

Rebel Scum - A Star Wars fan film about a Rebel Pilot who's speeder crashes on Hoth after the battle. - https://youtu.be/tiu2Tc2HdLo (Things have come a LONG way from the original Fan Film "Troops" - https://youtu.be/LvswNDAAZCU)

Uncanny Valley - Virtual Reality is in right now so it's a good time for SciFi based around it. This is a story about some virtual reality that isn't quite so virtual. - https://youtu.be/UXX0TRtg5Vk

Well that's kinda nifty. Still one of my biggest requests is +Inbox by Gmail to support native +Google Chrome notifications!
 
Inbox by Gmail on the web now makes it easier to share memories with instant access to recent photos and attachments.

Last year at CES, we mocked a company called Jide for creating a blatant Microsoft Surface clone. Well, this year they've come back with something new — and they've also returned much richer. See,...

Here's a free feature for +Inbox by Gmail​ (someday I will figure out why I keep giving them away)...Weather based reminders. So like next time the high is 70 or above remind me to clean out my car. Something like that. Anyway.

Introduction
I'm a passionate outside observer and fan of all things spaceflight, NASA, and Mars exploration. An avid user of Google services, Android tinkerer, and all around technology enthusiast and geek in general. In addition I'm always on the hunt for good scifi in all mediums which when I find it is a semi-regular series of posts. 

(Any opinions, outspoken and passionate as they can be from time to time, are my own.)
