Welp, I've officially backed my 3rd Kickstarter campaign (2nd to succeed) and it's the new generation of the 1st campaign I backed. I've enjoyed my time with my Android Wear device, and still think the software is really cool, but the Pebble hardware is just way more fitting to my lifestyle and what I'm looking for in a watch.

Pebble Time advantages:
1) 7 day battery life
2) Always on screen
3) Watch I can fully trust in the water
4) Button navigation (I wear gloves a lot)

Moto 360 advantages:
1) Better Google Now (traffic maps and setting reminders)
2) Asking Google random questions

Neutral things I use a lot
1) Voice replies to messages
2) Android Wear notification options
3) Quick glance at notifications
Pebble Technology is raising funds for Pebble Time - Awesome Smartwatch, No Compromises on Kickstarter! Color e-paper smartwatch with up to 7 days of battery and a new timeline interface that highlights what's important in your day.

That's a neat trick. I didn't realize until now that I could type reminders into the Omnibar. I usually have Inbox open near by, but this'll be good for the times I don't. Thanks.

Do South American geese fly North for the Winter?

As I understand it, yes.  All geese are the same.  In the northern hemisphere's winter, they hang out in Patagonia (like the original Dread Pirate Roberts).  In the southern hemisphere's winter, they hang out in Canada.

Here are my gas mileage stats for 2013. I, yet again, made a positive change over the previous year. But I bet +Megan Hendricks car has added miles again too.

2013
Total Cost: $1178.292
Total Miles: 9,179
Total Gallons: 353.7
MPG: 26.1
Avg Gas Price: $3.34

Differences from 2012
Spending: -$233.70 (Better)
Miles: -1,587.00 (Way Better)
Gallons: -56.40 (Better)
_MPG:- -1 (Worse)
Avg Gas Price: -$0.10 (Cheaper)

I wonder if my purchase of an Automatic car sensor will affect my 2014 driving stats.

It was very brutal. I saw a summary that I thought was pretty accurate:

The Broncos had stage fright, which became panic, then turned into disaster, and ended up humiliation.

A beautiful Fall scene turned Winter with the flick of a wrist. Can't get much easier than that.

I got an invitation to buy Google Glass but I am not going to use it. It expires in 3 days if someone wants it. First come first serve.

Google Now sure makes tracking shopping lists easy. I really appreciate this feature.

Moto 360 get!!

Detailed story on how I got it:

Apparently every Best Buy in the state, possibly nation, only got two Moto 360 watches each. One steel and one black. I failed to get one at my local Best Buy, Google Play, and Motorola' website.

My bosses lovely wife was off today and said she'd run to the one close to her to check, they were out. She them had them call another store who claimed they never got any and had been turning people away all day. She asked nicely if he wouldn't mind checking the back just in case. Sure enough, they had two. She then paid for it and picked it up for me. Like I said, lovely.

The Best Buy employee said she likely got the last Moto 360 in the state.

I haven't heard any official dates. For the last two years, the new Nexus phone was announced around Halloween along with the new OS.  Rollouts to older Nexus devices started within a couple weeks.

Hopefully they follow that timeline this year and Moto X is included in the Nexus rollout.

Well, I've now purchased both a physical (Tomb Raider on 360) and a digital (ExDialer app on Android) item using Bitcoin. Though things were a little different than the standard credit card or cash purchase, I have 25 years of experience with that process, it was pretty simple.

I've enjoyed the experience, and will likely try it again down the road. If for nothing else, it's a fun little adventure using a fancy new currency. Now we just need more retailers to accept it.

"Tomb Raider on 360" is that some code for drugs you kids use these days.

This guy doesn't make anything terribly extreme but it seems to prove a pretty good point about TSA security. He basically makes various weapons using nothing but items you can purchase after you've already cleared security. If nothing else, his ingenuity is pretty impressive.

Excellent.  What's that, the emperor's wearing no clothes?

So far I'm very impressed with Automatic, and I've only seen the installation and setup process. While setting it up I needed to look underneath the steering wheel, where it's very dark, luckily the developers were smart enough to put a flashlight quick toggle on that install step.

That's how you win me over, solve my problem before I even knew it was an issue.

In order to get it now, as opposed to February or so, I had to sign up for the Beta program so things will likely be a little buggy at first.

And right now there's no check engine diagnostics or emergency contact features for accidents. But hopefully I won't actually need either of those for a little while, if ever for the accident feature.

Very pricey ($195 total for two), but the food is both extremely delicious and very beautifully displayed. The view is also very nice overlooking a valley in Devil's Thumb.

This restaurant replaced Hops but it did so with a better beer selection (almost all local Colorado micro brews) and food that was slightly better as well. Also, for an inland location, the fish sticks were quite delicious.

Excellent customer service, random free breakfast deals, and man if that chicken isn't the best.

Our family makes the trek from all around the US every year to enjoy this place. The cabins are well maintained and modern, with hot showers, stove, refrigerator, microwave, etc and they offer boat rental, launching, and docks.

A little pricey but the food is good and the atmosphere (island bar style) is great.
