I wonder if you could set Cortana as the default voice search provider for Moto Voice? It would definitely be a great plus for people who don't like the direction Chrome is headed resource-wise on Windows machines, while still being able to get their reminders/search history from Cortana.

People will spend 100-200 dollars more on this and then throw it in an otterbox.

Eleven Days

The past few months have been somewhat transformative for me. I've made some complicated lifestyle changes, one at a time, and have now rolled them all together into something I'm actually happy with. 

My diet has completely changed. I'm swapping out the rice and noodles on my plate with a second serving of vegetables more often than not, and the number of times I eat at fast food-style places had decreased dramatically. I'm going more fruit and yogurt at breakfast, salads at lunch, and usually something I've prepared on the grill with dinner. It's far from a perfect diet, but wildly different from my previous behaviors. 

I'm more active in the mornings now, due largely to my physical therapy. The simple exercises from PT were easy enough to replicate at home that I just started doing them with my morning routine. 

Finally, I've cut out soda and energy drinks entirely, which was complicated for me as I generally dislike coffee and thought I relied on caffeine to start my day. Turns out that was nonsense, as I'm eleven days without an energy drink and wake up just fine in the mornings. 

None of these changes were complicated on their own, but combined I feel a lot better about myself. Maybe more important is that I recognize how gross I feel when I wander away from these things. I feel it when I've had nothing but pizza for dinner or if I miss my simple exercises in the morning. It's encouraging that I can feel I'm on the right path.

I told myself a while back that I wouldn't weigh myself until I had managed a complete lifestyle change. The scale represents a goal-oriented data point, and my biggest failure in the past was looking for loopholes to game that data point. I'd be lying to myself and pretending to feel great about an imaginary accomplishment, and when reality in the form of a bacon double cheeseburger finally broke that illusion I'd just give up and tell myself I'd exercise more once my arm healed or once my leg got better. 

No excuses now, though. On to phase two.

I don't actually know why, because it's not the result of a button I pushed, but my book is $2.28 on the Google Play Store right now.

Real excited by +Roman Nurik's new watch face with Muzei integration (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.nurik.roman.formwatchface), but my favorite Muzei extension doesn't seem to play nice with it yet. Such a cool idea though.

We've reached that point just before I/O where people start asking me what I'm going to leak this year, which isn't an unreasonable reaction given my history with this event. 

This year I'm focusing on other things. What's awesome about that is I actually can focus on other things, because I'm part of a team that has their shit together instead of doing everything myself.  It's good stuff, too. By the end of the week there's going to be some truly great stuff to talk about.

Besides, most of the stuff I've seen leaked so far this year has basically looked like...

I also highly recommend the Herr's Old Bay popcorn. It's excellent.

Let the kids run around outside with sparklers tonight, and grabbed a few shots with the LG G4 set to two second exposure.

These shots are after I put the RAWs through Lightroom. It is so much fun to do stuff like this.

Story
Tagline
I write things.
Introduction
I accidentally became a tech blogger, who then accidentally became an Author. Or something. Maybe. I'm never quite sure one way or the other. Hi.

If you're here for the writer bits, I cover mobile tech primarily. Sometimes I just pick stuff up and go with it though, there's really no rhyme or reason to it. 

My posts will also include the random thoughts of a Husband and Father of three. I won't bother to convince you we are the same person. 
Bragging rights
I will try anything twice. Once to see if it is a bad idea, and once more just to be absolutely certain it was a bad idea.

Everything about the food at this place was amazing. The Bang Bang Shrimp, the Crab Pompano, and the fantastic coconut creme pie for desert was perfect. I will absolutely be returning to this restaurant.
