All my plans are foiled by a simple login screen.

Some of the reviews of the Honor 8 said it supports two SIMs -- one nano, one micro-- or a combination of one nano and an SD card. I don't see a way to use a microSIM on mine. Is this not supported in the US model? If it is, where can I find instructions?

I'm so glad Google is working so hard to improve my user experience.

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

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.

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?

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.
