Selling my iPhone 6 Plus

As much as I really do love this phone, I'm selling it off to pick up some of the new devices coming out in the next couple months (i.e. OnePlus Two, Moto X Style, etc).

This is the space grey 16GB iPhone 6 Plus which is on Verizon, but unlocked for use on any US GSM network. Condition is nearly perfect. Has had a case and screen protector on since day one. 

Comes with two screen protectors (one installed), 4 dbrand skins (one installed), 4 cases, original box and original accessories. 

Asking for $615 on Swappa but I'll knock that down to $590 for anyone here on G+. Reshares are of course appreciated!
For sale on Swappa: a gently-used QVR708 Apple iPhone 6 Plus (Verizon) for $615. Buy safely on Swappa and save time and money.

Teasing.
 
It's coming! Android M lawn statue was just semi-revealed in a new teaser video. We think it's gotta be Marshmallow. #android #androidm

Gold. Pure gold.
After Target announced that they would be making their toy section gender neutral—no signs demarcating toys for “girls” or “boys”—some people were upset by the move and took to Target’s Facebook page. They didn’t expect the response they got from user Mike Melgaard, who pretended to be an official Target customer service account.

Wow. That troll really is a troll. Doesn't he/she realized that he/she is being just as biased as both Target and the people criticizing Target are? This is an A+ in the art of hypocrisy.

Alphabet, a new umbrella company for Google

Earlier today, +Larry Page and +Sergey Brin launched Alphabet Inc, a new parent company or umbrella company for Google and Google's interests.

Google started out as a search company and then quickly became an advertising company, with a focus on allowing the worlds information to be easily accessed. Times have really changed since the company's inception. Google now has an massive search business, ad business, plenty of web applications, various web services, physical hardware products, and then some really out there projects in the medical an technology field. A lot of these are only related, because they're Google endeavors that are using technology on some sort of scale.

The new Alphabet company aims to rope in all of these various services and ad some order to the growing confusion that is or was Google's direction.

As mentioned, Alphabet is the new parent company. The "new" Google will still maintain search, ads, maps, apps, YouTube and Android, and the related technical infrastructure to Google's core business. Calico, Nest, and Fiber, as well as its investing arms, such as Google Ventures and Google Capital, and incubator projects, such as Google X, will be managed separately from the Google business.

So, Alphabet looks something like this from A to Z. 

Android?
Boston Dynamics?
Calico
Capital

E
Fiber
Google

(List via +The Verge and modified by me) 

With the recent antitrust talks in the European Union, I could eventually see Android being broken away from Google and being it's own separate company that is wholly owned by Google. I could also see YouTube leaving Google's resign an being  brought under Alphabet. I'm not saying that is definitely going to happen, but today's announcements sure do set the groundwork for that scenario to happen.

With Larry and Sergey overseeing all of Google's interests from within daddy Alphabet, +Sundar Pichai is now the man in charge of Google. He's done a great job with Chrome, apps, and now with Android, I can't wait to see what he has in stock for Google over the next few years. 

With Google in Sundar's capable hands, Larry and Sergey can get back into doing what I think they want to be doing. Taking on extremely ambitious projects. While today's news might have been a surprise, I think it's been slowly leading in this direction for a while with announcements in the medical field, self driving cars, delivery drones, companies setup to improve city life, and everything else that just felt a bit too awesome and out of place to part of Google.

I can't wait to see what Alphabet comes up with next.

What a time to be alive.
As Sergey and I wrote in the original founders letter 11 years ago, “Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one.” As part of that, we also said that you could expect us to make “smaller bets in areas that might seem very speculative or even strange when compared to our ...

+Fossil's Android Wear powered smartwatch seems to take design queue from Motorola, sporting a flat tire on the bottom. The watch has an Intel processor under the hood, so that's pretty exciting.

Haha... Oh Internet... You funny.

Behold, Sundar, our glorious new leader. His smile lights the face of the world through billions of android and chrome devices. His wisdom transcends the alphabet and the breadth of the internet. Bring on the next billion users, because Sundar is ready for them.

There are a bunch of smooth interactions in Android but sadly, rotation isn't one of them. I've been craving the "smooth rotation" (as seen on iOS) since ICS. Well, let's hope that one day, this will become an actual thing.

I am a self proclaimed Geek, I am obsessed with technology, I love to tinker and problem solve, and dream to one day work for Google!  However, I am currently undecided on the specific job at this time, I just know I want to do something with technology that is important.
