Introduction

I’m a 40 something early adopter of all things technology. I was first in line to buy my Verizon Droid AND my Apple iPad, third in line for my Wii U. I don’t hate your phone, tablet, game console or computer choice, but I have an opinion about each.

After a 15 year hiatus from gaming, I'm back in a big way. Over the last 2 years I've spent time buying up the consoles and games that I missed over my decade and a half in darkness. I lean heavily toward Nintendo, but I'm also warming to the PS3 as well.

Aside from my family, the only things that I love more than a new gadget or a video game release day are fly fishing and going to the ballpark. I blog from time to time about both.

I’m a sports photographer by trade, but have been working since 2011 as a technology blogger.

My current devices:

  • LG Nexus 5
  • Nokia Lumia 635
  • Nexus 7 2013
  • WinBook TW802 Windows Tablet
  • Amazon Fire HD 6
  • 11" ASUS Ultrabook
  • Microsoft Surface 2
  • Samsung Series 3 Chromebook
  • Acer C720 Chromebook
My current gaming consoles
  • Nintendo Wii U - 32GB Deluxe
  • Nintendo Wii - Black
  • Nintendo GameCube - Black
  • Nintendo 3DS XL - Blue
  • Nintendo DS lite - Red
  • Sony PlayStation 3 - 250GB Super Slim
  • Sony PlayStation Vita

Bragging rights
I come and go like a thief in the night. I'm an ass kicker and a name taker. A one man wrecking crew. I'm also full of shit.

This tattooed up freaky looking little man was refused entry to Brother's Bar in my city, and it turns out it was Miley Cyrus's older brother Trace.

I didn't even know Miley Cyrus had a brother named Trace, and this clan of super freaks began whatever journey they are on in my home state.

My guess is that it had nothing to do with the tats at all, somebody recognized him as a Cyrus and didn't want that in their establishment. 
The older brother of pop star Miley Cyrus is outraged after he was denied entry to a bar on Newport on the Levee because of his tattoos.

This is version 5 of my Fruit Loops liquid, and I can't imagine how it could get better.

I ordered up flavorings for a Sugar Smacks recipe and banana nut bread last night. Can't wait to get on those two.

Seriously, stop trying to figure out workarounds for hotel captive portal logins. Just. Stop.

Many routers that can solve this problem for you exist in the $15-$40 range. This one is at the higher end, but is powerful enough to provide WiFi in a suite, which the tiny routers struggle with.

The tiny routers (I tried one of the TP Link minis) suffer from interference as well, meaning if you walk or stand between the router and device that is trying to use it your signal dropped. This Netgear doesn't have that issue.

Do the captive login once, save the profile and connect all of your devices. Done.

In a wired room, this router takes that Ethernet jack and turns it into WiFi without hassle, just flip the switch from wireless to wired.

There are few things that are funnier than when people in one country view the price of a product in another country, convert that to their own currency and then bitch incessantly when said item costs "more than it should".

The latest item to raise some this issue is the new Microsoft Surface 3 tablet. Supposedly $499 converts to like £336, and some Brits on Twitter are not pleased that MS will be selling it for £419

As if the only difference in cost of doing business between two countries is the currency conversion.

Cancer truly does suck always, but it sucks the most when it takes the life of a child. DIPG normally affects kids between 4-9, but Lauren was diagnosed at 17. 100% mortality rate for this form of brain cancer.

Totally and completely fed up with the false positives using Outlook.com email. I find too many of my messages in spam, and this last round hurts.

For Fuck You Friday I want to send out a big, fat, heart felt FUCK YOU to Microsoft.

At the end of the day, +T-Mobile isn't really all that different from the likes of VZW or AT&T. Take, for example, the very VZW-like nature by which users of T-Mobile hotspots get their DNS hijacked.

Imagine my surprise when not only were my Omni bar searches being redirected to a god-awful T-Mobile site, but I also got toast notifications asking if searches entered directly at Google were correct, offering to load this stupid T-Mobile search page instead.

The only way to change this is a cookie opt-out, which is not a solution. Given the fact that this hotspot now hides DNS settings I declare this to be malware and I'm taking the thing back.

So wait, Blu and Cyanogen are making an Android phone without Google?

Instead of a unified app and service ecosystem supplied by Google, there's to be this hodgepodge of apps and services provided by Amazon, Microsoft, Spotify and any other John willing to pay-to-play.

Good luck with that, and you'll need it. Blu will sell some of these because their devices always rate well among users and sell dirt cheap on Amazon.

Neither Blu nor Cyanogen are going to fare well with disappointed users.
 
+Cyanogen partnering with BLU to make a phone without Google

Making a phone without the googs seems like a tough, uphill battle to me. It's been done by Amazon, because they have a large ecosystem and others such as Xiaomi, because Google services are banned in China. However, coming up with a hodgepodge of services aimed at providing an alternative to Google's services and making the overall experience pleasant, well, this just seems like an overly daunting task. You can build a phone without the googs as mentioned above, but you better be sure it's truly an alternative and not a sub-bar experience that no one wants to struggle through.

Cyanogen has a lot of talent and a lot of key elements going for them, so I do wish them luck in their goals. I'll definitely be watching them closely to see how all of this unfolds.
Cyanogen has been alluding to this for a while now, but they're about to partner with someone on a phone that doesn't rely on any of Google's services. The partner is BLU, a budding maker of budget smartphones that actually aren't bad for their low cost.
