I love Google - I think it offers some amazing services. But I see a lot of Google fanboys complain about Amazon devices/tablets because it's not a "pure" Android experience. That's OK - these are valid opinions...for fanboys. But this is NOT how the average consumer sees Amazon devices/tablets.

According to Ace Metrix, the Mobile Device "Brand of the Year" award goes to none other than the Amazon Fire HD tablet - not Apple's iPad, not Google's Nexus, and not Samsung for any of their line of tablets.

More than 8,500 ads were analyzed, and awards were granted to "...the top performing ads by each brand [which] achieved strong consumer reaction through their ability to grab and maintain attention, be likeable, draw from the product strength or relevance, evoke desire, or change the way consumers perceive the brand."

Since all we're really talking about here are perceptions and which tablet a person likes better, this is a hefty award to receive.

So I say: C'mon, fanboys. It's time to realize that not everyone shares your opinion. It's OK to not like something. But to me, you sound exactly like the Apple fanboys that you also complain about regularly. Is that really what you want?

Agreed. A lot of people just regurgitate stuff without actually trying it or forming their own opinion. And Play services alone isn't worth paying more. But an overall better experience is, imo. At least it's worth it to me, when I'm recommending someone else spend their own money, and I know I'll have to do less to help them 😀.

I don't think my kids have talked to their socks about the buddy system yet. They're always mismatching them.

One of the reasons I love working at #amazon . Seriously cool that we'll be able to start the car while finishing breakfast in the kitchen!
Amazon had a very big presence at CES 2016, despite the fact that they had no exhibit or keynote.

I don't see a lot of middle ground on this one. It's more often one or the other. #family #children
How do you see Children? As a burden or a blessing? Your perspective on children says as much about you as it does about them.

This would be stupendous. 
An optometrist from British Columbia believes he’s invented the holy grail of corrective lenses: A device that lets you see “three times better than 20/20 vision” without wearing any contacts or glasses at all — for an entire lifetime.…

Approaching 2 hours just to turn our old iPad on. Now I remember why I left Apple so long ago.

OK, it's official. I hate the new version of Google+. I've been using the "new" version on my mobile phone for months before it came out (since I didn't use the mobile app). It's buggy - when I click a post, it doesn't always do what I expect. The images are now cut off unless you click into them. The UI just isn't as good. Boo.

Wow, this is big news! It looks like development of #calypso started last year, but I'm just now hearing about it.

#wordpress
 
This is a big deal. Wordpress has an out-sized influence on the Web. The decision it makes influence the decisions of tons of other Web developers, just like decisions from Facebook or Google. Going to a full JavaScript stack with Node.js and React Native is going to have some consequences. 
JavaScript may truly be eating the world as Wordpress, the content management system that powers 25% of the Web, ditches PHP for a JavaScript stack.

I finally got my old Dell Studio laptop set up to dual-boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu.

Non-nerd version: My old laptop now lets me feel super geeky when I'm in the mood. #linux

Story
Tagline
Just another techie, author, and family guy.
Introduction
If you want to know what interests me, take a look at what I share. Typically it falls into one of these categories:

1. Technology news
2. Humor
3. Anything I think is "cool" (including 1 and 2 above).
Bragging rights
I work at Amazon, I'm fascinated with technology, and I code on the side (assuming I have a suitable hobby project). I'm an author, language enthusiast, and I've done more school than I care to repeat. I've researched motivation and I'm interested in business development . I'm a happy husband, and proud father of 6 awesome kids. I graduated from Brigham Young University - Idaho (BS), BYU - Provo (MA), and Pacific Lutheran University (MBA). I'm a Certified Construction Marketing Professional (CCMP) and a Professional Scrum Master (PSM).

Dr. Holmes is fantastic, and his staff are equally wonderful. I love this place. I'm usually in and out in about 20 minutes, and Dr. Holmes is about as nice as they come.
