Everyone is talking about the gorgeous Apple Watch Review by The Verge. Yeah... it looks fantastic, but did anyone bother reading it?

Direct Quote: "my regular watch has had a dead battery for over a year. I don’t exactly use it for anything except looking cool."

I'm reading a review of the Apple Watch from someone who has been wearing a watch without a battery for a year because it looks cool? No thanks.

An Apple watch is not a necessity.



Some are shocked by this.

Best Practices for Google Analytics on Android (with source code!)
/by +Steve Albright of Neverstill   #analytics   #developers  #android

"In this article, I dive deep into how I set up multiple Google Analytics trackers and most importantly, how I keep organized with what data I’m collecting.  Recently I have been more involved with statistical data, focusing on user flow and interaction.  Tracking one or two elements can be very clear on how to setup the data hierarchy. Once you move past the basics, planning and organization are the key ingredients to success." 
Learn how to track events, app speed, screens, eCommerce transactions and much more with this advanced Google Analytics example. Source code included.

Google disses itself with automatic shortening of Page Title lol... I had to "view source" to see the actual title intended "Blows Minds".

This could change a lot of minds...
 
HTC has just announced "Uh Oh" protection for the HTC One M9. It guarantees you a free replacement if you drop it or experience water damage!

Bah, so sure you get a replacement once... but it also has planned obsolence in the form of an epoxied battery, fragile USB connector, and no wireless charging.  So sure you have a decent chance of keeping it for two years, even if you break it.  But then you'll likely have to replace it because the battery or usb port dies.  Silly to have to replace a $700 phone to fix a $15 battery.

They've been slowly rolling it out for a few months I believe.

This hilarious article on +TechCrunch can be summed up like this: "Boy oh boy, Google sucks these days. Not to be an Apple Fanboy - and I'm not an Apple fanboy - but everything Apple does is brilliant."

Here is the exact conclusion he makes word for word: "Say what you like about Apple, and I can complain about them at length, you always know what to expect from them. (A gorgeous velvet glove enclosing an exquisitely sleek titanium fist.)"

The article started off pretty interesting... but then crumbles into a pool of fanboy wankings.
Dear Google: what happened? Android sales are falling. Chrome has become a bloated hog. Analysts are calling you "the new Microsoft," or worse, "the new..

Story
Tagline
I'm a web/tech entrepreneur from Baltimore, MD
Introduction
My name is Rob Jackson and I own Neverstill Media, the parent company of websites such as AndroidForums.com, Phandroid.com, and many others in the Consumer Tech, Gaming, and Lifestyle markets.

I'm a tech loving early adopter who prides himself on creativity, loves traveling, and never underestimates the value of delicious food and a large glass of red wine. I love to learn, meet new people, laugh, and make other people laugh, which are some of the reasons I'm on G+.

I'd be perfect for the following types of circles:
  • Android
  • Baltimore
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Tech
  • Travel
  • Web Marketing
I've got lots of other interests as well, such as Sports, Gaming, Photography, and Cooking among others, but I don't currently post a ton about those topics. However one fun thing I like to do is related to my love of music.

I've started a series of music posts every Tuesday called #TuesdayTunes. This is the day new music albums are released. Each Tuesday I purchase at least one new album from Google Music, sometimes asking for follower feedback, and share it with my followers. Thanks to Google's "One Free Play" format, everyone is able to listen tot he full album one time through.

At some point I hope to get my personal website up and running, but there are about 10 million other projects on my running idea slash progress list. My mind is always on overdrive - which is not only a gift and a curse - but also one of the reasons my company is named Neverstill.
