I signed up for T-Mobile DIGITS beta way back when it was first announced. I got in to the program right away but never used it. Then I got my LG Watch Sport...so yesterday I set up DIGITS to duplicate my primary number to my watch. T-Mobile doesn't list the LG Watch Sport as a supported device for DIGITS, so I lied and said I have a Samsung Galaxy Gear S3 but gave them the ICCID from my Sport. About an hour ago I received several texts saying DIGITS was enabled and the SIM on my watch was updated. I restarted my watch and boom - if I call my phone, my watch rings as well.

If you buy the LG Watch Sport at AT&T (like I did) you can just get a wearable SIM from T-Mobile and install it. My watch jumped on T-Mobile LTE without any issues. I then cancelled my AT&T account. I don't understand why AT&T refuses to sell it without service when you can just cancel service within a week and keep the watch.

The charging dock for the LG Sport is USB Type C. The charger's specified output is 5V @ 0.85A

It's officially time to retire my original Moto 360 that I received at Google I/O 3 years ago!

Straight from China, an M.2 2280 to USB Type-C 3.1 adapter. I was surprised to find that not only does it work, it pushes a 512GB Samsung 950 Pro NVMe SSD to normal top speed.

This is what T-Mobile has become in downtown San Francisco during the work day. This was taken at the Caltrain station at 4th & king at 4pm on 12/15/16. While I have great LTE signal, I'm getting a whopping .03Mbps download speed.

Is anyone else wondering what happened with Google's handling of the Pixel release? How could they have possibly screwed up this bad? No sign of the Pixel XL coming in stock on the Google site anytime soon, and if you sign up for a new Verizon account and order a Pixel XL it says "your device will ship by JANUARY 20TH 2017!!!"

January 20th is roughly 3 months after the device was released. Considering mobile phones generally have a 1-year "shelf life" before they are replaced with an upgraded model, that means the Pixel XL will spend 25% of it's useful retail life - the first 25% - unavailable for purchase.

I'm certainly no expert in technology supply chains but doesn't this seem a bit excessive? Why can't we buy one almost 60 days after release? Am I missing something?

My Mustang seems to have made a friend in the garage for the last week or so.
