Motorola finally pinged me with a Marshmallow update for my Moto G. If I'm not heard from again, send hot chocolate.

I switched to the new G+ design. Looks fine. Not all that different from what I was seeing before (I use the single-column display). I don't see what people are whining about. The "settings" page is improved.

On my Windows 10 computers it is more sluggish especially when I use Firefox. The app on my iPhone 6 is still as snappy as before.

Has anyone run into this? I am trying to move my apps to my SD card. Facebook won't move, and also won't update (Google Play services error 503). Deleted the app three times. It just won't go away. I am to the point of considering a factory reset ....

I sure wish the settings/change watch face function wasn't so eager to accidentally show up and change my watch face.

You could put your watch in theater mode. Then you'd have to use the button to activate the face. But I don't think any of your notifications will show either. So not an ideal solution.

My wife's Moto G 2015 got the 6.0 update last night -- and after upgrading the OS, there's not enough room on the phone to update its apps. Fortunately, one of the features of 6.0 is the ability to merge the SD storage into the filesystem, and once I finished that migration, all of her problems seem to have gone away (knock on wood).

The setting to do this is somewhat buried. You have to "format" your SD card, and once you click that, you're presented with the option to unify the filesystem. Back up your data first, of course.

My Moto G is a 2014, and still waiting for its upgrade.

Steve,
Mr. Trump's Silence is Deafening on the Homeless Veterans Issue.
I have yet to Receive an Apology from Mr. Trump that my Family/Friend Staff Sergeant Ellsworth Samuels may have died Homeless in the Streets of San Antonio, Texas and  I found it out in the Media through his Veiled Allegory regarding our Situation.
People who Mr. Trump believes are Below him are just People he can use to further his Own Agenda.
I hope that Mr. Trump's Supporters find this out about his Lack of Character before they Vote for him as President.
Sincerely,
Katherine Goodacre

Since Google is dropping 32-bit Chrome support, I need to upgrade my 6-year-old Acer 1410 to a 64-bit OS. Is the AMD image going to work with my Intel Celeron (U2300) CPU?

Also, I think UI perfection was achieved with Maverick Meerkat and everything since then has been a step toward hell ... so do I want Gnome or Mate or Cinnamon or just chuck it all and switch to Linux Mint?

Please, Google, give me tools to block bogus sites and propaganda machines from Google Now "stories to read."

I got an invitation for Project Fi, Google's wireless/wifi/cell mashup, but I'm not inclined to go for that bait, based on the horrible experiences I've been having with Hangouts and phone calls routed over bad data connections. In fact, I'm trying to untangle my phone and my Chrome browser from Hangouts dependences and go back to the Google Voice app and extensions. My contacts do NOT generally use Hangouts, and the integrated app's insistence on sending messages as Hangouts instead of SMS means they just don't get the messages.

There are lots of bullies. This one is the brother of Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback ... and he's getting away with it. Great reporting by Tim Carpenter of the Topeka Capital-Journal. 
PARKER - Undulating fields of crops and livestock-dotted pastures are the domain of a trigger-happy bully who brags about a political cloak of invincibility keeping him beyond reach of the law in faithfully conservative Linn County.

Good food, good drinks, decent prices and an amazing view of the marsh and creeks.

You'll either love the Atlanta, or hate it. I've stayed twice and I'm in the "love" category. If you're a fussy traveler, don't go here. Don't expect the Hyatt Regency. You won't be happy and you won't be welcomed by the staff or other guests. The hotel is hard to find, a bit run-down, and there's no a/c in the lobby, restaurant or hallways. The rooms are spartan, there's also no lift, and those stairs are a challenge after a long day of sightseeing. But it's also charming, full of history, very safe, and very cheap. Behind the stern facade the staff is warm, friendly and eager to help. The food is excellent and the hotel has the most interesting guests of any place I've stayed, including the dogs, cats and giant tortoises. To find the Atlanta, take a taxi to "Sukhumvit soi-song" (Soi 2) and go all the way to the end of the road, where you'll see the entrance on your right. It's a bit of a walk to the skytrain (Nana or Phloen Chit) but not unpleasant. I see by their website that they now accept email reservations, which is a pretty big concession to the 21st century, so making a reservation should not be so difficult as I experienced. But you should be flexible about your accommodations. When you get there, your room may not be available (guests may decide to extend their stays). The hotel is very good about finding a solution.
