So.... having played with the lock screen notifications on Lollipop/M9 I can safely say I hate them. It seems to be either, anyone who picks up the phone can see all or most of your notifications, with content, or you see nothing and have to unlock the phone to see if you have any notifications. 

Has anyone figured out yet how to choose what apps display notifications only in the Bar and not on the screen?

Blocking notifications for an app blocks all notifications which is no good, and "Hide Sensitive Notifications" still leaves a lot of "sensitive" apps on the screen for anyone to see. I don't need colleagues or clients seeing social media messages on my phone if I happen to leave it face up on my desk. 

So, am I missing something simple, or is it a case of someone developing an app to do what should have been done to begin with which is give us the ability to mark any app as "sensitive."

+L-Renaud T. Drev Ouch... I'was more worried about clients who are in the same industry seeing something they shouldn't, but the angry ex would be very awkward too. ;)

To those who even remotely believe that #netneutrality  is some sort of political agenda item.... please kindly show yourself the door to a dial up modem of your choice. You don't deserve a free and open Internet.

The only Politics surrounding #netneutrality  are the lobbyists from Verizon, AT&T and Comcast who are working very hard to insure their clients have a very deep revenue stream for ever and ever at the expense of the consumer and innovation.  

These are the same companies that gutted the Rural Broadband Initiative. The same companies that regularly raise prices and introduced data caps to the masses. 

Think long and hard before you start talking garbage about how the administration is politicizing the Internet. The FCC should reclassify ISP's as common carriers. They should have done it long ago rather than waste time appealing a law that was short sighted and written 25 years ago. 

The rest of the world is laughing at us again. The fact that #netneutrality   is even a topic of discussion shows how lost we have truly become.

OK, first impressions of the HTC One M9... Feels great, looks fantastic and fast fast fast.

Battery life pro tip... Make BlinkFeed go bye bye... Big difference.

The camera... To be honest it's not the greatest camera in the world, but it's not the quivering mess that some would make you think it is. It's OK. It's not stellar but it's OK. I've spent big bucks on dedicated digital cameras in the past that were much worse.

More to come.

Great news: The Federal Communications Commission just voted to keep the internet open and free. That's the power of millions making their voices heard. To everyone who spoke out, thank you. wh.gov/net-neutrality #NetNeutrality

Best smart watch ever! It tells me everything I need to know at a glance. I instantly know how late I'm running for an appointment, what's day's appointments I'm running late for and how long until the end of the day! Oh... and it runs for years on a single charge, and lights up in the dark too!

I love Technology!
