moto x²  - 
 
OK, so this is part rant, part cry for help. Last month I took advantage of $350 Moto X 2014 to replace my nearly flawless 2013 model. Like the phone, hardware is a nice step up.

Here's the problem: it's buggy as hell. Moto X is known for the nice little touches. Conversely, the little bugs are running my experience.

Sometimes, like just a minute ago, the double twist to launch the camera doesn't work. It's happened several times, usually when I need to act fast to get the shoot. I even unlocked the phone and tried from the home screen. Launched the camera, excited, tried again, it works.

Smart Lock, trusted location is so unreliable, why even bother?

Google Play services using more than 1gb of days per month, see attached. 750mb with 12days left.

It has yet to read a text message to me while driving.

Approach to launch moto display works sometimes.

Scrolling through contacts only available on the right hand side. Hey, lefties use phones too.

These are just some of my issues, some are poorly designed user interfaces, some are Buffy software, all add up to a less than stellar experience.

Is anyone else having similar or other problems? Have you found any solutions?

The world is full of poorly designed experiences. Let's identify them, share them, and shrink their numbers.

Has anyone played around with Drupal console? I don't have time to try it out this week, but I want to get my hands on it. Interested in hearing any feedback.

I work with a lot of folks that do Symfony all day.  Having console abilities on Drupal projects greatly empowers them.  It's kind of an expectation that you'll be able to start things on the console then refine them.

Ok, this is really interesting post from the watchdog. Using Drupal with elasticsearch and silex for content delivery api. I think we're going to see a lot more of this kind of robust system in the future as media dominates content, but the end user has a greater variety of devices to consume it. Thoughts?
The latest rage in the Content Management world is the idea of a “decoupled CMS.” That is, rather than having a single monolithic system that handles everything from content entry to management to display and theming in one program spread, that responsibility is assigned to different systems: ...

This is an interesting article on some of the things you can do with varnish. It doesn't say exactly why you would do all of this with varnish, though I imagine because anything you can do with varnish will be fast.

I am not a Varnish expert in the slightest, all I know is when I have it installed in front of my LAMP, even just basic configuration ( which is all I can handle ) my websites are super fast.

However, since SSL is becoming more and more important ( even some discussion around better SEO for SSL'd sites ), does this make varnish less important?  

Also, is there a preferred way to get Varnish like speed from an SSL'd site?
