Today on Pensacola Beach, looking west, through a window with the HTC RE Camera. (With some love in FCPX.)

+Roy Hembree dude... They should bring you on board. Seriously that would have been the perfect summertime marketing angle.

Had a feeling this was going to be the case after the NYT reported it was coming to Apple Music.

Sucks how Google Play Music still gets zero lip service from artists and labels, though. 
 
Australian rock band AC/DC has made several albums available on streaming services, including Google Play Music, Spotify, Rdio and Deezer.
Australian rock band AC/DC has made several albums available on streaming services, including Google Play Music, Spotify, Rdio and Deezer. Although AC/DC is one of the best-known bands in the world — having sold more than 200 million albums globally — band members were reticent to make their records available online, stating that they prefer albums be heard in full rather than broken...

"Sucks how Google Play Music still gets zero lip service..."

That's the case for everything, if it isn't Apple then the media doesn't talk about it. I went around work one day asking random people if they had ever heard of Android Wear or any smart watches, not one person had ever heard of anything except the Apple Watch. The media does Apple's advertising for them.

My America is not the same as yours.

It’s not the same America that gay and lesbian sons and daughters of the Midwest experienced.

It’s not the same America that black sons and daughters of the Deep South know.

But make no mistake, brothers and sisters. It is all OUR America.
To make Pensacola stronger, we have to take to heart the lessons of this week in bridging our divides — and be honest about the space between us.

I disagree with Jerry about this being the best phone you can buy, but can't argue with his take on the software.

(Also: Kids who take this shit too seriously and forget that it's OK to have differing opinions ... they're silly.)
The best Android phone is more than just the sum of its parts. We're at the time of the year when most of the big players in Android hardware have shown us what they have to offer (waiting on you, Motorola) and many of us have had a chance to try them all. There is some really good, and interesting, stuff out there in 2015. We've moved past the gimmicks like 3D and dual-camera lenses...

I think it might actually have been that the Sim card was deactivated and I just didn't realize it. Derp. :p

Death to the 24-hour news cycle.
The network reported that a London gay pride rally was waving an ISIS flag. Guess what was really on the banner?

CNN has been a joke since Clinton commandeered it back in 1992 - 93.... After all it isn't called "Clinton News Network" for nothing

Fortunately this post seemed to escape the expected shitstorm of comments. O_o
Everyone around here seems to be gushing over the LG G4. I dare to have a different view. When LG took the wraps off of its latest G-series flagship, I immediately wanted to get one to put it up against my favorite phone at the time, the Galaxy S6. After being relatively unimpressed by the G3 with its performance issues and lackluster software, LG really had me excited with new...

It's not a phone, it's a phablet. And people don't want buttons on the back. Next

Can't beat Starbucks inside the hotel. Rooms were clean. Internet speed left a lot to be desired.

Smack in the middle of town, security lines are quick. Not much in the way of amenities, but you're not likely to be waiting long. Can be oddly warm inside in the mornings.

Better bar than restaurant, but the sandwiches are HUGE. Can be too loud when there' sa band inside.
