I love my new Nexus 6. I think my favorite feature besides the 64GB of space is the front facing speakers. They're simply brilliant.

Definitely can't say anything else cause nothing else matters with the Nexus 6 it's so dull and drastically featureless total bordum daily.

Android 5.0 Lollipop in a word? Beautiful. Two words? Simply amazing. I'm in love with my Nexus 4 all over again.

These animations really make a huge difference. I've always thought iOS had the superior animations, but Material Design on Android takes it to a whole new level. I was excited when Google announced the Material Design guidelines, but to actually get to experience it first hand is fun, whimsical, and magical.

But there is one question... How much is Samsung going to alter and largely ignore this wonderful experience via TouchWiz? Samsung has great hardware (even if I am opposed to physical hardware buttons) but the amount of useless software features and designs they include in the name of being different spoiled my time with the Galaxy S5.

I understand the issues with TouchWiz and other such skins can be resolved by running custom firmware, but I prefer to look at this from the view the average consumer. Also, I single out Samsung due to the sales success and wide spread adoption of the Galaxy series, but the question remains the same for the other manufacturers as well.

But, in the spirit of Android, at least we have choices.

I'm normally not one for phones larger than 5 inches, but the new Nexus 6 may be my first venture into the "phablet" territory. As much as I want the new Nexus 9, it's a bit much to buy both devices. My phone needs an upgrade (iPhone 4s) and my tablet needs an upgrade (Nexus 7 2012). I'm thinking I'll upgrade the phone first.

I have the OnePlus one right now and have used the G3 and think that they are great sized phones. Russell Holly said that the N6 was something he recommends everyone holds because it is as massive as it seems, unlike the G3 where the design detracts from the size.

Updated my Galaxy Nexus to 4.4.2 today. Best update ever! Was on the verge of calling it quits with my Gnex after a loving relationship since launch day. Really, though, today made me realize that this beauty has aged liked fine wine.

Aboard ship on deployment, it was common to tie off some cord above your pillow and hook your laptop through it, so you could lay on your bed and have your computer hanging above your head.

This got problematic when a few people wound up at medical with gashes from their laptops falling on their heads.

Just imagine if this never happened.
 
Forty years ago, the IEEE Transactions on Communications published a paper by Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn titled “A Protocol for Packet Network Intercommunication,” establishing what's now known as the TCP/IP Protocol Suite. Essentially a model for how information can be transferred and routed across multiple networks, it's the foundation of the modern Internet. Today we're celebrating the 40th anniversary of the first publication of the Internet design—and looking with great curiosity toward the ever more connected world of the future: www.tcpip40.com

The shop keepers I encounter in Animal Crossing have better sales skills than some of the people I've met in real life. I would hire them.

Yeah, 4.2 is what I was flashing from. I have to say, it's the only time I started to hate my Galaxy Nexus. It makes me sad that there isn't an official 4.4 for it, because this feels like a whole new phone. Not as fast as the Nexus 5 of course, but fast enough to not make me feel envious of new phones...yet.

Holy crap, I'm always amazed at how good people can draw on a 3DS. I can't even get my signature to look good!
