This just arrived, so I haven't really done much with it just yet, but I can say that it seems like a really capable phone for $250 (that was for the 16GB / 2GB model with the name on the back, an extra flip shell and taxes). Perhaps more important, this phone paired with the $30 per month pre-paid plan from T-Mobile and my daughter will be very happy.

I think I'm getting one of these for my aunt. She's looking for a smartphone.

I'm not an iPhone user myself, but this is pretty cool news for those who are. Sadly though, Wear watch support is a rather limited at the moment.

It's about at limited as Pebble, so it's not terrible.  Really, Pebble is the one to worry about here.  Not Apple.

After years of daily service (purchase in January 2013), it seems my +Fitbit One has bitten the dust. The screen simply doesn't turn on any more. And even sadder, there isn't any cash in the gadget fund for a replacement at the moment.

How do you rebel against a new dress code, that says your shirt has to be a solid color with the logo being smaller than a business card - - you buy solid color shirts and transfer paper and make your own logos.

Guess there isn't anyone that wants a pair of Sets Sunglasses. Surely these are worth more than $0.01 (plus $5.00 to ship).

+Jeff Causey I'll lose money based on what I originally paid, but considering they have sat in my desk unused since -- I am ok with just getting rid of them.

This is how I'll be spending my Saturday, running the 46 mile Pinellas Trail Challenge. 
Saturday's 46-mile race draws runners who like a robust test.

Seems people complain more than they praise, so I wanted to share a positive experience with the folks at +Fitbit 

Earlier this morning I posted about my Fitbit One here on G+, and also on Twitter. I shared that it died, and as I had been using it daily since January 2013 -- I didn't think much of it -- the device had a good life and that was that. I was saying goodbye, rest in peace, really just as a joke. 

Anyway, I'm not sure how this will work out, or whether we'll magically get my One working again, but I was pleasantly surprised when the @FitbitSupport account reached out to me on Twitter. Especially considering this particular One is clearly out of warranty.

I suppose we can file this using the "It can't hurt to ask" rule, but seriously, I hadn't even replied to the guy looking to buy the phone for $250 (which would be a $30 price drop) and another person is asking to get it for $220.

My OnePlus One has been great, but I'm happy with the Nexus 6 and even happier with Project Fi. That means it is time to sell the OnePlus -- so I'm heading to +Swappa.
