A few thoughts on these things. ...
 
Slap a Mod on it!
The (new) new Moto has a slick phone on its hands with the Moto Z. (And Verizon's upped it even more with the Moto Z Force.) And the optional Moto Mods are brilliant. The question is whether they alone are worth investing in this new Android ecosystem.

So $700 for the Moto Z (because you'll need the battery mod). That's pricey. Also, still not sold on the Jay Leno chin this phone has.

Wonder if the unlocked version will have the same price or be cheaper.

I'm getting REALLY close to saying the OnePlus 3 is the phone you should buy right now.

Someone try to talk me out of it.

Don't do it +Phil Nickinson​! It could be a trap! I know, send it to me and I'll make sure it's safe.

They really do let anyone with a credit card make those surveys, you know.
Or, how Google Consumer Surveys probably aren't a product roadmap ...

JFC. NO. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THIS COULD ROOT 90 PERCENT OF ALL DEVICES. The wording here is important. "Almost 90 percent of Android devices run on affected versions." That lets you have big, scary target population without any actual data.

The apps have been pulled. Even if all 850,000 devices noted here were exploited (and there's zero data to show that's the case), that's one-one-thousandth (at the high end) of the total population.

How can you tell if you have an affected version? My phone is an android 5.1 lollipop.

Well, mostly impressed. There were a couple ways in which this thing really let me down.
 
Color us impressed, and maybe a little scared.
Samsung's Gear 360 is the 360-degree camera we've all been waiting for. It stands out. It has the power of one of the world's biggest tech companies behind it. ... And it's a somewhat frustrating product.

I wish Samsung didn't insist on vendor lock-in. I would probably get this to go with my Ricoh because I hate it's software, but alas not all my gear is Samsung.

I'm kinda stoked to see these three having this much fun.
 
Teamed up with +Erin Moriarty and +Jen Karner to have some fun.
A representative from each faction in Pokémon Go is going to get together each week to talk about all the amazing, crazy things happening in this colorful new world. Here's how you listen!

And it's FANtastic.
 
The U.S. is finally getting an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 + S7 edge!
It's the best Android phone you can buy, no longer shackled to the U.S. carrier system.

Was very cool to see this sort of modding support out the gate.
A safe and secure phone often means one that makes things hard on the folks who like to tinker with their toys. But it's not always a cat-and-mouse sort of game.

No mention of Sony it seems like they've done a lot for the dev community.

At least they put up a traffic cone. Safety first, right?

This might even be better than the 360 footage. #Gear360

I have been playing with the #Gear360 for the past month, and the photos are quite good (love how easy it is to operate). Here is a sample, taken before the firmware update last week (excuse the extremely long link, but I didn't want anyone thinking I was baiting them with a shortened URL): https://www.google.com/maps/contrib/103185963158598240204/photos/@38.5808834,-109.6174416,3a,75y,214.72h,110.8t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1s-2xiJZMg9kGE%2FV1mSlie-kuI%2FAAAAAAACiaA%2FWCTsPGSoJAIdufDmya5rvyngR4mp6whsgCLIB!2e4!3e11!6s%2F%2Flh6.googleusercontent.com%2F-2xiJZMg9kGE%2FV1mSlie-kuI%2FAAAAAAACiaA%2FWCTsPGSoJAIdufDmya5rvyngR4mp6whsgCLIB%2Fw203-h100-p-k-no%2F!7i7200!8i3600!4m3!8m2!3m1!1e1!6m1!1e1
