We use it for private communities within the school and love it for ease-of-use, as well as, photo and video display.  For example, we set up a private community for our school's Earth Week initiatives to be displayed.  

I also use it as a professional networking tools.  I am a member of several education communities where we share ideas, insights, how-tos, etc.

That said, I don't use it for personal social networking.

The worst part? Commenters are saying he deserved it. If things are really that bad in San Francisco (I don't live there, so I don't know), I can guarantee assaulting people isn't going to fix anything.

To echo +Michael Meehan the number one crime in San Francisco is theft of mobile phones. Police warn people not to walk down the street pecking at your phone while not being aware of your surroundings. Wearing a $1,500 computer on your face while walking in this neighborhood is flat out stupid. 

Maybe someone will off an app that combines GPS with Google Goggles to alert the clueless to threats :(

I spoke to HTC's president about why he thinks this year will be different for the One.

By the end of the year, Samsung will have 3 different smartphone operating systems and three different smartwatch operating systems.

OK, so why write an article that you would switch to Samsung S5 if they fix it, when in fact you want an HTC One? :)

Yes, same here. Camera is a dealbreaker. Together with the bottom bezel, this is not going to be my next phone. 

I really love everything else, but I would trade everything else for a better camera.
