Finally an HTC phone I really want to replace my old M7. After three years, I'm finally going to upgrade. 
An alternate take on our original review: The HTC 10 may not be the most exciting or innovative phone ever, but that doesn't mean it isn't darn good.

Horsetail Falls by +Michael Frye  ....
Every year for a few days in the month of February, the sun’s angle is such, that it lights up Horsetail Falls in Yosemite, as if it were on fire.
Horsetail Fall, located in Yosemite National Park in California, is a seasonal waterfall that flows in the winter and early spring. The fall occurs on the east side of El Capitan. If Horsetail Fall is flowing in February and the weather conditions are just right, the setting sun illuminates the waterfall, making it glow orange and red. This natural phenomenon is often referred to as the "Firefall", a name that pays homage to the manmade Firefall that once took place in Yosemite.
This waterfall descends in two streams side by side, the eastern one being the larger but both quite small. The eastern one drops 470 m (1,540 ft), and the western one 480 m (1,570 ft), the highest fully airborne waterfall in Yosemite that runs at some point every year. The waters then gather and descend another 150 m (490 ft) on steep slabs, so the total height of these waterfalls is 620 m (2,030 ft) to 630 m (2,070 ft). The image shown here is taken during a brief time during the winter, near February 21 at sunset.
The fall is best seen and photographed from a small clearing close to the picnic area on the north road leading out of Yosemite Valley east of El Capitan.

♬ ♪ So mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away! ♪ ♫
As far as we're concerned, there's not a song in history that rock legends Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem can't knock out of the proverbial park. With The Muppets back on ABC, we're constantly gifted wonderful bits of modern Muppet entertainment with just the right amount of nostalgia. A recent video uploaded to The Muppets YouTube channel does a phenomenal job at pulling all the right heartstrings as the Muppet band perform Paul Simon's 1973 ...

You ruin your life by letting your past govern it. It is common for certain things in life to happen to you. There will be heartbreak, confusion, days where you feel like you aren’t special or purposeful. There are moments that will stay with you, words that will stick. You cannot let these define you – they were simply moments, they were simply words. If you allow for every negative event in your life to outline how you view yourself, you will view the world around you negatively

I love this wording as it is so true~  mind you I know this because I have had to experience that negativity first hand and it really sucks!!

TIME magazine has a great article up today about one of the most important things we're working on at Google: the universal assistant. Simply searching for web pages isn't what people want, nowadays: they want to be able to talk into their computer (or into their phone, or simply speak into the void) and have it understand what they mean, what they want, and make it happen.

I'm extremely excited about this area: So excited, in fact, that I've made it into my day job. For the past several months, I've been focusing on this full-time, and this is what I expect to be spending the next several years on: making "ambient computing" -- computing that is seamlessly present wherever you are, so easily accessible that you barely even realize that you're interacting with a computer -- a worldwide reality.

You may not know this, but before working on Google's social products, I spent years building major chunks of our search systems and our systems infrastructure; the "universal computer" has long been a dream of mine.

I often tell people that "any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced." That's more than just a quip: the defining feature of magic is that it transforms your wish for what the world should be like into physical reality, without you having to perform any intervening steps. ("Abracadabra" is not just a nonsense word: it's Aramaic, "avra ke-davra," "may it come to pass as I have spoken." It's all about your words turning into reality.)

To achieve that, we have to go far beyond simple things like search: we have to have systems that make it easy for people to interact with and extend the assistant to do everything conceivable. That's where I'm spending my time, and I'm looking forward to being able to tell people more in the future!
It's right out of Star Trek—literally

A brief description of me? Impossible. Get to know me, and then describe me!
Introduction
Internet Junkie, tech/gadget info sponge, loves social media and promises to try to use her powers only for good.
Mom of four, lover of nature, into marketing, social media, meeting new people, travel, food, emerging technology, teaching myself and my kids to code, music and too many other things to list! 


What I do:

I assist  small business owners with entering the world of websites and social media. I love helping clients get a foothold on the internet, and examine all the possibilities open to them. I work with them to develop and implement a workable social marketing strategy to meet their goals. I can also write blog posts. post to multiple sites, tweet and curate content for my clients. Some of them don't have the time or the desire to do it all themselves, and working in tandem proves to be the perfect solution. 


I consider every client a friend. That's my favorite part.
