Always looking for a great set of bluetooth headphones/earbuds.
We've got a toolbox doing double duty as a speaker, headphones that play music by themselves, and another set of Star Wars headphones in this installment.

SO here's a question. Is the plan for Papyros to just skin it according to material design or is the plan for deep, OS level integration of Google apps?

Like full calendar and email integration with Google Calendar and Inbox. I'd like to be able to connect Google Play Music to the onboard media streaming device. That kind of stuff. 

If it's just a gorgeous Linux Distro designed after material design then that's fantastic too. Just curious.

That's a good idea, I'll love to see this kind of Material design.

You probably haven't heard of +Orpheus Brewing​. These guys are right on the heart of Atlanta and are cranking out some of the most interesting brews I've had in a while alongside some the most beautiful representations of classic styles you will find out of the south.

This double IPA presents with a rich aroma of pine alongside a ubiquitous and well integrated sweetness. The hops are extremely well balanced as well.

This is one of the most easy to drink double IPAs, while, at the same time, being true to style.

If anyone wants a humdinger of a debugging issue, check this link. It has to do with getting gestures working on a Samsung Series 7 untrabook running only Elementary.

I'm about ready to throw in the towel but I love ever other aspect of Elementary so much, i'm going to go down the rabbit hole again tonight to see if I can make any headway.

I have a Samsung Series 7 ATIV Ultrabook and can't, for the life of me, get multi gesture to work. If I use a usb trackpad it works fine but the onboard trackpad just does basic point and click. 

Can anyone help?

My new friend +Marco van Hylckama Vlieg is developing some great new Android Wear watch faces using native code instead of Facer and Watch Maker. Right now they are all free, but I'd pay for some of this stuff. Great work! You should add him to your circles and follow his progress! Thanks Marco!

#androidwear   #moto360   #lgwatchr   #smartwatches  
 
These are my first three watch faces. They are all FREE and they work with all Android Wear watches. Two of them are fully configurable through a companion app on the phone. It's been really hard to get people to notice them so I hope it's ok I'm posting some links here. Not trying to spam or anything. Promise! All made with real code so no Facer / WatchMaker or other apps required.

Every time I launch synaptiks it says no touchpad installed. I'm on a samsung with an Elantech touchpad. Also, no advanced gestures other than simple mouse and point and click. Anyone know what's going on?

Elan sucks on linux, more if Samsung is somewhere. I have the same problem every distro I've been using with my laptop, rc730
I can activate double finger click with this tutorial
http://www.evilcodingmonkey.com/2014/01/23/ubuntu-activate-multi-touch-on-elantech/

and using this in terminal to make it works every boot

sudo update-initramfs -u -k all

It maybe can help you a bit or not, in some lenovo's computer I know it activate all multitouch gestures, but not in my samsung

UPDATE

So the Elantech touchpad on Freya saga continues. Still no support. However I discovered what NOT to do. If you read forums that say kernel 3.2.68 has a hard time with gesture touchpads and that upgrading your kernel to 4.0.1 might fix the issue...

DON'T BELIEVE THEM

I've now bricked my machine. Heading home for a fresh install.

I've already posted the question in here twice:
https://plus.google.com/+LaneGreer84/posts/P16dyfoKq9x
https://plus.google.com/+LaneGreer84/posts/Ayt9KHUsvTS

Neither got a single response. I really like Elementary, but I might be forced to go elsewhere to a community a little more active so I can get some help when I end up in an issue like this. I'll give it one more try though.

so I followed these instruction as, though my laptop is Samsung, and this is for an HP, it seemed like a similar issue.

http://goo.gl/Nf9LDN

However, when I run $synaptiks I still get a "No touchpad installed on this device" error.

I've gone the synaptics route, the touchegg route, the alps route. I just need to know what information is needed in order to debug. I'm kinda at a loss here.

PS: When connecting through a Windows 7 machine and using my Windows machine as a server and my Elementary machine as a client, all the gestures on the Windows machine are reflected on the Elementary machine. I"m using Synergy for mirroring. Probably not relevant but I thought I would check.

I want everyone to know about a new Chrome extension released by Google today. 

Phishing attacks are real. Malicious 3rd parties will send you emails that look very real. They could look like they are from Google or Facebook or Twitter or even your bank. If you are fooled into clicking the link in the emails (that usually say something about a suspicious attempt to log into your account and that they need you to change your password) you will be taken to a page that looks very real. However, it is not a real Google, Facebook, Twitter... login page. When you input your username and password, then the malicious 3rd party will steal your information to gain access to your account.

To combat this, Google has released Password Alert. You must install it in your Chrome browser and it watches for any time you ever enter your Google Password into a website that is not a legit Google website. It will then alert you and and prompt you to change your password.

Google has been using this extension internally with their employees for the last few months and they have seen a 80% reduction in employees being fooled by these attacks. 

Just wanted you to be in the know!!!

This is a super refreshing look at Android 5 and iOS 8. If you're like me, the debate between Android and iOS is as polarizing as politics and just as annoying. I'm an avid +Android​ fan and my friends who have iPhones almost shy away from telling me they got the new iPhone 6. Honestly, I'm happy for them, because they got a super powerful phone they like. That's great!

The Apple ecosystem is alive and well, and if you want to go all in, you're going to have a great experience. Sure there are things about Apple's products and business I'm not a fan of. If I was, I would still be an Apple user. I transitioned to Android, and just like iOS, there are things I do in spite of Android limitations. There just happen to be, for me, more things Android does really well than are limiting.

The reason i really like this article is that it actually does a great job of setting the experiences side by side. As i looked at the pictures and read the data, yeah, I clearly saw that I prefer Android. But, if you look through these and find you clearly like iOS, that's great. You'll at least be able to articulate your preference better than you were able to before.

People give me all kinds of reasons why iOS is better or Android is better. For iOS the ecosystem tends to be the first thing to come up. I'm not an OSX user. I ran +Ubuntu​ for a year or so. I've been on +Debian​ for the last year. I just went to +elementary​ OS a couple of weeks ago. I'm a +Linux​ guy so osX wouldn't make sense for me.

For Android, people always talk about customization possibilities, widgets, alternative roms... I've gone those routes before. My devices are always rooted. Not because I mod the hell out of my phone, but because I do a lot of tinkering at the system level and I don't like hitting permission roadblocks. I used to flash roms (Cyanogen, Paranoid, ...). I got tired of the half baked feeling they give off. I used to use alternative launchers (which I still play with from time to time). However, I run a pretty vanilla version of Android, rooted, with Xposed framework installed. That keeps me and my #nexus6 happy.

All this to say, Android and iOS do copy each other. This is a good thing! If iOS didn't exist, Google wouldn't have a reason to build out the OS and push the limits of mobility. If Android didn't exist, iOS wouldn't have a notification center, inter-app data sharing, actionable notifications... Competition is awesome and neither platform is going to 'win'. As long as competition is alive, the winner is the user (wow that sounded like it could have been a quote from Tron).

Take a read through this article and leave your comments in the post. I'd love to know everyone's thoughts, but please read the article first.

iOS vs Android: The 2015 Edition http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/lifehacker/vip/~3/j2FWx8D2xFQ/+whitsongordon
It’s been 7 years, and the great iOS vs Android debate rumbles on—in internet forums and real life. But these platforms have come a long way even in the last year or two. Do the old arguments still apply? What features separate iOS 8.3 from Android 5.1 Lollipop? We used a Nexus 6 and an iPhone 6 to investigate.

lol... That's strange. The article is actually on +Lifehacker . I can honestly say I've never actually willfully been to gawker. Love the Lifehacker tech perspective, though. Kinda like I'm not the biggest fan of Time Warner but I love HBO.

Introduction

PLEASE READ: If you are going to add me to your circles and want me to add you back, please have a picture of yourself as your profile picture and some information about you in your profile. I hope that's not asking too much.

I am a normal guy living my life in love with my college sweetheart and wife, Hannah. We have two awesome dogs, Brody Bear and Cocha. Check out my photos to see them.

I am bound to my GOD by the sin He saved me from, and no amount of generosity or philanthropy will free my from dependence on His grace. That is my blessing.

Stuff I'm into:

  • Boutique Fine Wine (primarily French, German & Spanish)
  • Craft Beer (I like balanced beer. Not a huge fan of over malted stouts or over hoppy IPAs. Life is about balance and moderation and my taste in beer is similar)
  • Whisky - as a general rule I try to keep my cabinet stocked with one single malt Scotch whisky, one blended Scotch whisky, and one Kentucky Bourbon at all times. They're all fantastic but I just depends what kind of mood I'm in.
  • Music - if you want to know the kind of music I'm into just search Google+ for #eclecticcollection. I post stuff pretty regularly under that hashtag. 
  • The merger of society and technology for the purpose of the enrichment of life in general. In the words of Google CEO, Larry Page, "Technology sould do the hard work, so you can get on and live your life."

Terrible service. I literally hadn't been to a papa johns in over 10 years so I thought I'd give it another try. I went online to order and their website wasn't working. I called to place the order and they wouldn't honor the coupon because it was online only. I told her their website wasn't working and she just said "sorry". Then she said " thanks for calling" and hung up. Guess I won't eat. I'm ordering from pizza hut right now. Apparently papa John's didn't want my business that Mich anyway.

This was previously a 1 star. Look at the bottom and see what I initially wrote... BUT, I have converted my review into a 5 star review simply due to the way they handled our experience. Upon Penske reading my review and receiving a letter I sent to their executive management, they called me directly on my cell phone. They didn't make excuses or otherwise "pass the buck". They owned up to their mistakes and more than compensated us for not only the cost of the truck but also our trouble and inconvenience. Though this doesn't change the experience we had on our trip, this DEFINITELY changes my impression of the company. It is rare, in this day and age for a company of any size (let alone a company the size of Penske) to admin fault of any kind. Before they contacted me I was under the impression that this was a dishonest, unreliable company riddled with problems. After speaking with them and after them making it right I fully believe that this was a perfect storm of unfortunate circumstances. That being said, I will definitely give Penske another chance. Their trucks are in much better condition than U-haul's and their terms are more lenient. Bravo, Penske. You've more than redeemed yourself. For U-haul, I would classify them as a quality, reliable machine you can always depend on. For Penske, I would now put you in a pretty elite classification of a company that strives to give great customer service and cares about their customers. When something goes wrong, you bend over backward to make it right. Thank you for changing my opinion. Deceiving and a royal pain to work with. Truck seemed like a great deal. Very clean. Low miles. Nice sales people, but as I type this on my phone I am broken down on the side of the road. Their truck won't start and I can't get anyone to answer roadside assistance. I've been here for an hour and no one will help me. No idea what will happen.

So my wife and I used a Groupon here right after they opened a year or so ago. I have to say we had a terrible experience! We hadn't been back since. BUT, last week we met some friends here and the experience was completely different. Atmosphere was really great. Wasn't too loud. The server was good. Didn't come by too often and didn't ignore us. The food was REALLY good. Wings were crisp, poppers were amazing. The burger my wife and I split was one of the best we've had in a long time, The only disappointment was that our drinks weren't great. Me and the two guys I was with both started off with Old Old Fashions. We essentially go 3 totally different drinks. Same thing happened when we ordered Manhattans. Kinda strange. It was like there were three different bar tenders all making drinks and making them in completely different ways. Different sized glasses. Differing sweetness. Overall its a fun place to go with friends. If you're looking for true, spot-on, mixology, you might want to try Beatrice and Woodsley down the street.

My experience with Hertz is always really good. You cards are always nice people are very helpful I would recommend taking a shuttle to your hotel in renting from a Hertz off site because the airport fees are very high

I just genuinely didn't like the concept. Typically, when I go out for dinner and a movie, the dinner is the time to talk and socialize, then you shut up and enjoy a movie. At Cinebistro you get seated in the theater about 20 min before the show starts. You have until it starts to place your order. There is NO service after the movie starts. Essentially the experience is similar to if you sent to a restaurant, gave your order, and then after your food came, all the wait staff goes home. Then... The at 17% gratuity to ALL bills and then ask you to tip more. The server actually stand by gout table to see how much more you tip. At the end of the day, the tickets are a full $15 each. We got a dessert, 1 cocktail, and 2 black coffees. Out tab was an additional $35. So this was a movie with a light snack and out total was $65. We won't be back.

I'm from Texas so I know Mexican food. My wife and I searched all over Denver for REALLY good Mexican food. We found a ton of bad Mexican, and a handful of "ok" Mexican. Lunas is by far the best we've found in Denver. Their enchiladas, burritos, tacos, and queso are all great. Will definitely be back. We've probably already been a dozen times or more.
