I feel like many reviewers just rushed to publish reviews ASAP to increase pageviews... I actually spent a full week with the phone and tried to collect actual opinions rather than reciting specs. Hopefully it was worth the time!

I'm not sure if I'm more weird for thinking this or for sharing it.

April Fools Day has become over-saturated and too predictable. Next year I'm starting March Idiot Day where I do something to make you feel like an idiot on March 30th, well before the rest of the world chimes in 2 days later.

Good idea, but then that too is predictable.

We should tie your concept of Idiot Day to a lunar calendar so that its you have to pay attention.

The 3rd Tuesday after the official "Quarter Moon" [full and new moon's are played out] ...but only the next occurrence that is 2 weeks after the Spring equinox.

$5! Got it!
 
All it takes is one good (or bad) idea...
Call Jonas Hanway crazy, but after being embarrassed on Shark Tank the entrepreneur's new product has raised $1 Million dollars on Kickstarter. It's called Thumbrella and it's the frenzy that's becoming the next Flappy Bird.

Punked by Google Chrome auto-complete once again.  If I try to quickly visit Google Analytics ... start typing analytics.google.com ... and somehow end up with a Google search for "anal" one more time ... I'm going to lose it.

Seriously though. I'm so used to typing "ana" or "anal" and hitting enter as it auto-completes. Then I clear my cache for whatever reason and without fail, this happens.

The worst is when it happens at Starbucks lol. Kind of funny. All my fault, of course, but I'm always like "Damnit, Google!"

What's worse is, on chrome, when you remove just the one term from your search history you get a passive aggressive snarky prompt telling you to use incognito mode next time :)

How come some cops and firefighters blatantly disregard the law whenever they want? They parked like that because it was the closest possible place to park for getting food at panera. There is a huge empty parking lot 20 yards away. They're creating a traffic jam and a safety hazard which is exactly why the no stopping sign is there in the first place.

I almost hope they cause an accident just to make the point. They do this every single day and I see it allllll the time other places too. For real... just follow the rules, set an example, and stop making you and your colleagues look like assholes!

+Don Dudas you're correct. Accurate and intentionally misleading. They're supposed to be journalists telling a story not salesman trying to sell a product. They're doing the latter and their product is propaganda. 

It's easy to pick on Fox News but it happens across the board to a shameful degree.

#AndroidFitness  

I'm trying to create a routine that doesn't let me slack and this should help on both the fitness and dietary health side of things:

* Wake up every morning and walk to Starbucks (.7 miles)
* Catch up completely on transactional e-mails
* Walk to grocery store (.1 mile)
* Buy lunch/dinner for that day/night (healthy!)
* Walk home (.8 miles)

If I can do this daily, I think I've won half the battle. I'll be starting my day right, getting some excercise, and making sure I don't end up eating unhealthy food. I think this tiny bit of activity will likely make me more anxious to exercise later in the day. It's so easy to get sucked into ordering food or dining out, but this should prevent that...

Now... any apps that can help me stick to this? I've heard of some that let you set goals for yourself and if you don't reach them it posts to your social networks shaming you. Good self-motivator. Can't remember the names, though.

Any other good ideas for routines to stick to the fitness guns? Or routines in general? Maybe something that electrocutes me if I haven't been active enough for the day? LOL.

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.
