I've been obsessed with Iceland for a year or so now, can't wait to get up there. 
 
"Land of the Lost"

When I first saw this place, I was blown away with how prehistoric the scene in front of me looked. I was kind of expecting to see dinosaurs strutting about or pterodactyls flying in the sky. Even without the giant lizards in the canyon our whole Dream Photo Tours group stood perched on a cliff, mesmerized, transfixed.

Good thing we're doing it all over again next March for a Winter Iceland Photo Tour: http://dreamphototours.com/winter-iceland-photo-tour/

This time the waterfalls will be frozen, we'll be exploring ice caves, and we'll be in prime Aurora Borealis season.

Just when you think you've seen it all... Iceland once again proves to be one of the most incredible places on Earth for photographers, adventurers, and travellers. In a word... Iceland is Awesome!

So the only problem now is deciding where to build the castle... and, of course, finding a few elves that can hang around and look majestic. 😇

I've been wanting a tool like this for a while now. Pumped it finally came from Koush, too - he definitely knows what he's doing. 
 
Vysor Share

Remote screen and ADB access

There's a few tools already out that that lets you control your Android through your PC. Vysor isn't unique in that regard. However, I think I have the other apps beat in with seamless setup and compatibility (no root to boot). :)

However, I had actually envisioned Vysor as a developer tool. Vysor gives you all the benefits of a physical device, but with the ease and integration of an emulator in your development environment.

The headline feature of Vysor is Vysor Share. You can share your device to another Vysor user, across the office or across the globe. This means screen and ADB. This is something I've wanted as an indie dev for a long time: a way to deploy and debug on a remote tester's device. It's as easy as sending a link.

Vysor was actually leaked before I was ready to release, but the roadmap also includes Vysor Server: a device farm that your Android dev team can access remotely. Test device specific issues, run automated suites across a dozen devices, etc. You don't need to pass test devices around anymore, just access them through Vysor.

Just got looped into an interview for a graphic designer position (I'm the Interviewer, not Interviewee). What questions should I be asking?

Depends on what's on the candidates resume. Some are more "artist" some have programming/web scripting skills. It also depends upon the need for the role your filing. You want to see at least 2 or 3 examples of work they've done, presumably live and online.

Not really sure where to put this, so I'll put it here (there should be a section for this)

Saw that. Might want to rename it or something, given Titanfall 2 isn't out yet (and doesn't really have a release date, that I'm aware of).

Android Wear support - notifications come through, but are often "stacked" with no option to view each individual tweet - is this something you can fix? Ideally I could tap on each one and read it, with options to RT, favorite, or open in phone.

Curious as to what app everyone is using for Exchange email on their watch? 

I'm currently using MailWise, and while on my phone it's great, this experience falls apart on Android Wear - I get multiple notifications for the same email, and the notifications get grouped if more than one comes through, with no way to scroll through them or interact on a one-by-one basis. 

This is the experience I'm hoping to get: 

- When I receive an email, I get a notification with sender name, subject line, and first ~sentence of the message. 
- I should be able to tap on the notification to read the entire email (full text)
- Options to act should include delete, archive, mark as read, flag, open on phone
- I don't really see a need to be able to respond from my watch - the input mechanisms are terrible anyways, so I'd see my watch more as a triage point than a processing point.

Thanks all. Setup Nine last night, looks like it definitely does the job thus far.

Want. 
ASUS has announced a new variant of its ZenFone 2, the Deluxe Special Edition. The phone, unveiled in Brazil, is for the most part the same as the Deluxe Edition launched earlier this month, with one major difference: an option for 256GB of internal storage. Aside from that, it's the same phone as the ZenFone 2 and ZenFone 2 Deluxe. It has a 5.5-inch display, a 64-bit Intel Atom...
