I picked myself up a Nexus 5 today. My initial reaction so far? Wonderful. It's a very snappy device, which makes sense given it boasts some of the best tech out there despite the (relatively) low cost. The screen seems beautiful, KitKat has been awesome feature-wise over 4.2, which I was running on my Galaxy Nexus... Yeah, happy.

That said, reviews I read were right: the camera is hit or miss. The images themselves seem pretty good, but it has trouble focusing effectively. That'll be addressed in an update though, so hey, maybe it'll work out.

Definitely. I know others who are still very happy with their 4s.

Well, I'm all sorts of okay with this.

My main takeaway from the Xbox One reveal: SPORTS! SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS!

While they talked about the live TV experience, and also a little bit about how you can interact with your own media, I was really far more interested in hearing what they were doing with the streaming media experience, and more about how it'd interact with other devices.

Oh well. Maybe at E3?

I just shared an article about how that analogy doesn't work.

My Think Geek order came in, so I have the option of now wearing a Darth Vader (http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/f125/?srp=16) or Stormtrooper (http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/f2e4/?srp=14) shirt while I head out to see Star Trek tomorrow. Hrm. Choices, choices.

If anyone stares do a "live long and prosper" gesture and say "may the force be with you".

I admit, I wasn't that interested in Not-Eva at first, but the more trailers that come out the more I get interested. I mean, if nothing else, giant robots and shiny things. It does look rather pretty.

And so concludes my time with Qualcomm. It has been an excellent two years and a an incredible t four with the Killer gaming team.

No rest for me though. I'll talk about what's next... probably on Monday.

So... Wait. Oklahoma finds itself with a new monument to a Lovecraftian Old One, and roughly the God of Chaos, Azathoth...

... and /the/ a small Oklahoman town finds itself plagued by horrible blood worms infesting their water supply:

Dammit Oklahoma, stop messing with the vast, terrible powers of the universe already.
Dear Oklahoma City: There is either an extremely dangerous cult in your town, or there's someone with a sense of humor. Either way, if you aren't prepared for your soul to be devoured by a Lovecraftian horror beyond imagining, you might want to cancel your reservation at the Paseo Grill.

Actual quote from a news article: "Captain America just hit one of them," he told CBS. He said that Spider-Man was bleeding. 
Following a British altercation between fans of 'Doctor Who' and 'Star Wars,' Hollywood witnesses a superhero brawl, reportedly over sidewalk territory in front of a theater. Read this article by Chris Matyszczyk on CNET News.

And thus one of the great downfalls of voice commands was realized:
Xbox 360 Kinect owners had some trouble today watching Microsoft's Xbox One reveal due to device's response to "Xbox" commands spoken during the livestream. Several users took to Twitter to document...

I feel the need to tell the world that +Casey Monroe is, in fact, using Google+. And he's pretty okay, so that's cool.

Can. Not. Wait. For. Season. 4.
Shutterstock created hilarious posters to show what made-up charity each 'Arrested Development' character would likely support.

I'm a community manager in the mobile gaming space. I'm also a gamer, a gadget-geek and a SFF fan, among other things.
Introduction

I am a community manager for EA Mobile and something of a reformed games journalist, but what someone does for a living is only one small aspect of what defines them. So to describe myself I’d have to also say that I’m a gamer, a tech-lover and a gadget geek. I like to consume science fiction and fantasy media in a variety of forms, and that barely scratches the surface of how nerdy I can be. I grew up around computers and games, so I figure becoming a big geek was probably inevitable.
