So, what's up with Verizon denying us the ability to use data while on calls? Yes, I'm talking about the distinct lack of a feature I have used extensively on both of my prior 4g phones. The feature I wasn't aware was missing from the phone. The feature was promised and never delivered.

I see the Droid line have it, I read that Nexus 6 users can now with 5.1 use Advanced Calling. Why not Moto X?

Third question, any Nexus 6 Verizon users on Verizon, does Advanced Calling work?

I am so sick of this, I am ready to sell this phone and get the Nexus and I just got this a month ago.

I agree I use my phone for work and the lack of volte sucks. But I can't deny big red. I downloaded 5.1 in 6 minutes in Worcester MA on xlte. That was a 500 mb update. I haven't seen a phone on 4g as fast as this one yet. Tough to trade this in for a phone with volte, I also work in a recycling facility and when the plant is running most people can't hear the background noise. So I can't imagine how good it will be on volte, sigh I'll just keep waiting because I like this phone to much.

Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty)  - 
 
Google needs to get back to supporting Linux users with top notch software. Lack of an official Ubuntu client is forcing me to spend even more money to maintain Dropbox for Business and Google Apps for Business.
Google introduced Google Drive on April 24, 2012 and promised Linux support “coming soon.” That was nearly two and a half years ago. There’s now a somewhat “official” Google Drive client for Linux, but it’s probably not what you want.

This is a cool idea for a flexbox based grid system. As a big time Omega 4 user, I have really gained appreciation for singularity gs and susy, but the possibilities of a flexbox grid system would make things much easier.

Thoughts on this? Would anyone be interested in a semantic version maybe even a sass gem?
 
Dear Front-end colleagues. Here at my workplace, we use Foundation to create responsiveness. But, we only really use the grid system and the offcanvas and a lot of times we need to make some things that would be MUCH easier to achieve with flexbox.

With that idea in mind I spend the Sunday working on a grid system inspired on Foundation 5 and using flexbox. I'll work on the offcanvas component today or tomorrow so people that really need it can also find it here.

Of course this is project is still very young. It's been online for less then a day and is probably not bug free.

If you guys could use it, test it, contribute with code or just reporting issues on github that would be great. You can download the css files and use it or you can download the SCSS files and modify the variables on the settings file as you please.

There is support for small, medium, large, extra large, extra extra large screen sizes and all breakpoints are customizable. The xlarge and xxlarge classes are not included by default. You have to enable the variable inside _settings.scss and compile to make them available.

Thanks for posting. I use Zurb Foundation regularly and this seems like a very lightweight way to do responsive grids - sometimes you need the bells and whistles of something like Foundation but other times all you need is a grid like this. I'll have to check this out when I get back to my desktop. Thanks!

Has anyone experience with Webform Matrix Component? It's a pretty cool module, but I am getting errors when I add a date field to the component. I filed an issue a couple of days ago but if anyone here has any Osborne, it would be much appreciated.

When a date field is added to a matrix, errors, lots of errors.

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?
