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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

RIP Top Gear, you'll be missed.
Of course, and are both happy to see you die. Assholes.
If I'm Dell, Samsung or any other OEM that MS is approaching about this AFTER they've shaken me down on patents, the price is 4x the amount of my patent licensing deal, take it or leave it.
I don't know if this model is new or if I just missed it the first time, but this set my minimalist wallet loving heart all a flutter.
I love going smaller and smaller on my wallet because it forces you to carry less and less crap with you on a daily basis. My old leather bifold was almost 3" thick with all of the cards, cash and crap I kept in it.
Now, I don't carry cash at all, I keep the cards that I have to have on me and my wallet is less than 1/2" thick.
My leather bi-fold wouldn't stay closed without a big ass rubber band. Big Skinny bi-fold has no problem staying closed by itself. In fact, my leather wallet is thicker empty than my Big Skinny is full.
I'm new to Big Skinny and hesitated to pay $22 for a wallet that I had never seen and knew nothing about, now I won't buy anything else.
