Photosphere of my backyard this morning. I'm finding the Note 3 camera app does a better job than Google's stock camera, with the exception of up-close objects, of course. Everything caked in ice with a fresh coating of snow overnight. Starting to melt now though.

So, I just got invited by Google to get Google Glass and become a Glass Explorer. I would say this is the most amazing thing ever, but $1500 says otherwise. :( #sopoor   #glassexplorers

Between Nintendo and Motorola, I don't know who is price gouging consumers worse.

Spent about half an hour with the #Ouya   so far. There are some gems in their game store, but they are buried in garbage. Good thing I bought this strictly as an emulation box. USB storage support is lacking at this point in time. This thing was definitely not ready for prime time for consumers, although for tinkerers and Android hacking it’s amazing. Root and custom recovery looks as simple as it does for Nexus devices, although this thing isn’t totally brick-proof as most phones these days are, so I’m a bit hesitant to open it up so quickly. 

All in all, if you want an easy way to run emulators on the big screen and like tinkering with Android, it’s fantastic. If you just want to browse their game store and use it as intended, don’t bother. Very happy with my purchase though.

So, my contract with Verizon ends December 16th, and I'm jumping ship over to AT&T. I'm torn between the LG G2 and the HTC One. Both have their advantages, and both also have stupid little things that will bug the hell out of me (The G2 has the stupid menu button, the back-mounted volume rocker, as well as an unsure update path to KitKat, while the One has the smaller screen, smaller battery, and weaker processor/GPU). I'd be happy with the Nexus 5 for the most part, but the weaker camera performance and subpar battery life is stopping me from committing to it. I don't want the Galaxy S4 or Note 3, and the Moto X is too mid-tier for my usage, although the software improvements over AOSP are nice without getting in the way. 

HTC has been fantastic with updates, and has the amazing stereo speakers and the nice aluminum build, but the G2 is ultimately the superior device with the industry leading screen, Snapdragon 800, and short of the Droid Ultra on Verizon, the best battery life out there. This is actually a really tough decision. #Android   #HTC   #lgg2

Reading more and more Moto X reviews from people who actually took their time with the device. And it's becoming increasingly clear:

In a vacuum, the Moto X is great. Meaning, if there was not much competition, it would be a solid choice. Problem is, at $199 on contract + 2 year subsidy, or $700 off-contract, right now I have my choice between: Galaxy S4, HTC One, both Google Play Editions of those devices, Xperia Z/Z Ultra, or 2 Nexus 4s. And if I wait just another 2 months, add to that list the Note III, One Max, and Nexus 5. Each of those choices, except for the N4 at this point, have things that are much much nicer than the Moto X (some even completely outclass the X). I can buy any OEMs flagship device, because $700 is the asking price for a flagship.

You can scream "user experience" all you want, stock Android is stock Android is stock Android. Your experience will be 95 percent the same on the Nexus 4. At $349-$399 off contract, this becomes a killer phone. At the same price as everything else, it's just a stupid purchasing decision. You can make it any pretty color you want, the fact is, this is designed for people who like overpaying for things. Might as well get an iPhone.

Polls indicate 80 percent of potential customers prefer the #PS4 over competition.
