The Hunt for Good SciFi 

"The Landing" another amazing short film out there on the net. This is very well done production wise and there's a major twist to it. It's a little on the gruesome side maybe a strong PG-13 or low R mostly psychologically.  Anyway I won't ruin the twist but yeah take a look and judge for yourself.

UPDATE: Moto hit me up on Twitter to say it will only be online but 14-day full refund if it is to big or some other issue.

More news on the #MotoX  front. Apparently only ONE version the 5.7" too big Pure edition is coming to the USA. Much like the Nexus 6 it will work on all carriers. It will be sold directly and not through the carriers. This is a major issue to me because I would need to try it out in my hand before making any final decision and if I can't do that well that's an issue. Apparently the industry/world/whatever has just "retconned" us all and big phones are a thing, and they're the thing we want and always were/have been.

Maybe it is time to go back to a flip phone. Didn't LG just announce a flip-phone that is Lolipop based! :D

Here's hoping!
 
Hoping this list of Moto X (3rd gen) specs are the real deal.

While the new Moto G has leaked more times over the last few weeks than we can count, the Moto X (3rd gen) has done a pretty good job of remaining mostly out of sight. Tough to tell if that's because Motorola is only going to give us a new Moto G and save the Moto X for later this summer or if ...

"It’s just surprising to see Google continue to change up its design language. Is this the beginning of the end for the slideout drawer? Obviously, that all depends on the application."

It really is weird. I dunno I'm personally a fan of the drawer vs. this type of setup but that's me and I guess we'll find out as we see more Google Apps and probably M.

Okay well this is awesome. If you've given yourself to Google like me and use Location History and really you're missing out on a lot of the awesome of Google Now without it now you can can get a really cool way to browse it. See past trips, etc. I'd been hoping for an update of something like this for a while so pretty cool! WHOA And just as I was thinking of it'd be cool if it put your photos on there...IT DOES!
 
You know Google is tracking your every move, right?
You can now check all the places you visited via a new feature in Google Maps called "Your Timeline."

Well said. Also not only would success help drive the way we purchase phones forward with the freedom of being unlocked. But equally important is moving the needle on Pure Android and showing the industry (side-eye to you SAMSUNG and HTC) that you can still stand out without bloatware, glitzy features, and atrocious skins! Hopefully Pure Android moves from a winning strategy to industry standard that'd be an equally big win for consumers all around.
 
Whether you plan to buy the new Moto X or not, hope that it is a smashing success. This is the approach to making a phone that we need every manufacturer to consider.

Whether or not you plan to buy the new Moto X Pure Edition when it arrives in September, you should be rooting for Motorola to sell record numbers of them. This new direct-to-consumer approach from a brand like Motorola is something that could help continue to change this industry for the better ...

Let me start by saying that I really like my Motorola  #MotoX  (2014) quite a bit actually. To me no phone has ever looked better than my origional HTC One M7 but that's just asthetic taste. I really appreciate Motorola's pure (or very close) approach to Android. One of the reasons I went with the MotoX to replace my M7 on Verizon was because it was the closest thing to a Nexus you could get without buying the comically large Nexus6. I made one critical mistake though in buying the phone with only 16GB of storage, it was handicapped from the start, but I needed a phone and I needed it then. 

So today Motorola announced the two new MotoXs. The flagship "Style" and the still respectable "Play."  The problem really is probably that the phone I want is the Style + Play + Screen Size of the current MotoX. Sadly that phone wasn't announced today. Perhaps sadder still is in a world where (I'm still not sure how or why) bigger became better in terms of phone screen size that phone isn't likely to exist any time soon. I really though we'd see the crazy huge phone sizes be reigned in some but it seems the industry is doubling down. 

So where does that leave me? Searching for a new phone still I guess. I'm still not sure I want to break the 5+ barrier but if I were going to I'm not sure I wouldn't want to just go for the Nexus6. Of course then the issue is storage and Google has said NO to MicroSD where the industry seem to be using that as a way to differentiate. So the MotoX Style does have microSD which would solve all my storage problems if I drop a 128GB card in there. The MotoX Play seems nice it is smaller but still bigger than the current MotoX but benchmarks I've seen on its lower end processor haven't wowed and that doesn't seem like a future proofing strategy to go that rout. The current MotoX was supposed to be my hold over phone until whatever was next.

I mean I occasionally still flirt with the idea of an HTC One M9. Sense has toned down some and it still has that one of a kind design. But then of course there's the software hit of going back to Android 5.0 vs. 5.1 because well Verizon so that's a bummer.

Many people say well hey storage I mean can't you just stream everything? Well it seems like the answer to that around where I am is sometimes. Even in a pretty well populated suburb of Boston there are just total dead zones of coverage and you're driving along rocking out one minute and the next you look down 1 bar of 3G and you're buffering. This is why I like to have lots of storage and cache my favorite playlists which tend to be several gig and then if I want to take pictures well you get the idea. 

Ultimately I'll probably need to wait until both the Style and Play are out and I can get hands on in a store which on Verizon means probably sometime around December! :D

Pretty wild to consider how many exo-planets have no been confirmed and discovered. In my life time I've see even the existence of exo-planets go from speculation to science fact. Makes you pretty excited for what discoveries the next few decades might bring!
 
This is huge.
NASA's Kepler telescope has found a world 1,400 light-years from Earth that is slightly larger than our planet and orbiting in its star's habitable zone.
