Got a pencil kit for Christmas, I've never really drawn before. This is what I drew with it.

This is disappointing. I'm sad to have my suspicions about 343 bomb shelling the halo series confirmed. 

Glad I decided to just stick with the 360 with reach, odst and other great games that work. 
Earlier this month, I wrote a piece saying that there was a never better time to buy an Xbox One than now. That was in the wake of Microsoft announcing a price cut of many of their most popular bundles from $400 down to $350, which, factoring the cost of a [...]

I recently got my hands on Google cardboard, and I must say that it is the coolest thing I have seen in a long time. I recommend it as a must have for anyone with an android phone.
What can beat the ability to skydive, watch 3D movies, watch movies on an ultra screen, immerse yourself in first person games as if you were really there all from your desk, living room, bedroom or other, for just $30? NOTHING!

I own a Nexus 5, and the battery gets me through the day. However I can only use about 20-30 min of screen time before my battery starts to get low (~30%), the rest is eaten through the day during idle. Cell coverage is not great during the day until I get home, is there a way I can boost the idle time to at least 2 days instead of 1 without going into airplane mode? Would turning off mobile data have any affect?

I already have sync on the absolute minimum. And having tried turning off Mobile Data, I get about another 30~ of battery life savings, which is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.

Hello android fans out there. I have a question for you.

I have owned many tablets in the past few years including the Kindle Fire 1st gen, iPad 2, Nexus 7, Nexus 7 2 (currently loaned to a friend), and the Shield Tablet (current). When I owned my tablets up to the Shield, I had an iPhone. Yes, I know, an iPhone. But I wasn't able to upgrade to android at the time, so I got my android fill via tablets (as you can tell from the iPad 2, I am an Apple convert). Back then when I had my iPhone, I had no problem finding uses for a tablet, because I would rather use a tablet than my smartphone.

HOWEVER, now I own the Nexus 5, a fantastic phone that I love, and I am having a hard time finding a place for my tablet in my tech family. I don't seem to ever have that situation where I'm like "this would be so much better on my tablet". I find that I can just as comfortably browse the web and watch videos on my phone, as I can the tablet. So it leaves me to ask:
what do you guys use your tablets for, who also own a smartphone. Are they still worth buying?

EDIT: Further Question, those of you who do use tablets or even smartphones: Do you find that you are able to use your android device productively and get some sort of work done?
