I just got a new smartphone, so before I put the old up for sale on Swappa, is anyone interested?

Nexus 4, 16GB, black. Some scuffing on the top and bottom, and a noticeable crack on the back panel, but otherwise in good shape. The processing speed holds up surprisingly well against modern phones, and it WILL get an official upgrade to Android 5.0. Price is $120 or best offer.

(Feel free to share with other friends who might be interested)

14.04 is out. Which do you like better, Xubuntu or Lubuntu?

I have an old System76 Lemur at home, which I'm using as a backup/travel computer. Full Ubuntu runs kinda slowly on it, which I why I'm switching to Xfce or LXDE. I don't plan to use it for much beyond web browsing and Google Docs, maybe some lightweight Steam games (FTL).

Especially with the latest release, I'm curious which people like better these days. I gather that Xfce is older and probably more stable, and LXDE has lighter system requirements. I haven't tried Xubuntu in a while, but last year's release of Lubuntu didn't strike me as particularly pretty. (I'm sure if you hit either with a hammer long enough, it can look however you want, but I'd rather have a default desktop that looks decent.)

I'm really considering buying one of these. I've been looking to buy a smartwatch for a while, but I've been somewhat locked in that cycle of "something better will come out next month". Mostly I've been waiting for Google to release something, but they don't even have rumors of an actual device yet.

Anyway, Pebble is definitely the best smart watch to buy right now, and I think their Steel version looks pretty nice. Thoughts? I'd probably get the brushed steel, but I'm open to suggestions.

It seems to be the smart watch that delivers the best experience right now, and I must admit that the Steel looks fantastic. The only other smart watch I've looked into is the Qualcomm Toq. But seeing that it's $349, I'm definitely looking at this watch to be my first smart watch. I have a Note 3, but the Gear disappoints in battery life among other things.

How do you guys feel about the renewed rumors of a Google Watch? I consider WSJ to be a pretty reputable source for this stuff. Honestly, it's making me consider cancelling my Pebble Steel order (which is not likely to arrive until late March anyway). If they really do release info on their Google Watch OS in March, I'll be paying very close attention.

Voice commands on watch will make you look like a wierdo when in public. The way i interact with my phone has changed since getting my pebble. I would say go for the pebble now. Its not worth waiting on Google bc there is zero information on it.

Here's a question - how do you import code from this class into Android Studio? Studio seems to only want to load from a Gradle file, which is not included in the examples for this class.
