Look at this fool. Posts a picture of a PS4 Dev kit and claims it's his PS4 in a modded case.

Take a bite out of Portland as we launch our new Google City Experts program and invite you to be a founding member! Join us for an evening of sips and sampling in the company of fellow City Experts and enjoy a stunning performance by local musician Jesse Layne.

You and your +1 will also meet the minds behind one of Portland favorite wineries and learn about their journey from a humble garage to a bustling business which Wine Enthusiast Magazine calls "one of America's must-try urban wineries."  Watch Taco Pedaler handcraft fresh tortillas right before your eyes on their signature tricycles, then chow down on authentic Mexican street tacos paired with wines intimately crafted by ENSO Winery. Finally, chefs of the famed Cupcake Jones will assist you in decorating custom cupcakes.

Can't wait!!
 
Random thoughts on the Moto X before the big unveiling tomorrow. Respond to any point using the number. Thanks for all the comments, +1s, and shares this last week. It's been fun hyping this device up.

1. I believe that 97% of the details surrounding the Moto X have already leaked, but I'm certain there are a couple surprises left. Any guesses?
2. I was never able to confirm the rumor that units had shipped to carrier stores. You would think that some rogue retail employee would have leaked a pic if there were boxes sitting in the back, but how did Best Buy keep the Chromecast stock a secret?
3. I still believe online pre-sales will start tomorrow. I'm told they will be sold at Motorola.com and not the Google Play store. The online configurator should offer more customization options that people are expecting.
4. Rumored pricing for Moto X off-contract has been anywhere from $199 to $599. I honestly don't know what the final price is, but Google has the ability to hit any price point they desire. I think a base price of $499 would disappoint, $399 would be a good value, $299 would make most people happy, and $199 would signal that Google is scared of Samsung.
5. Speaking of pricing, don't expect a big discount if you are buying a carrier locked version.
6. Props to Motorola for trying something new with the camera. They are the only ones using this new Clear Pixel camera, and it could be the best camera on any Android phone. Should have great low-light performance like the HTC One, more detail like the GS4, and video at 1080p 60 FPS.
7. Also glad to see Moto pick a display that offers the best picture and power consumption, instead of just going for highest-resolution. Moto is calling this the worlds first interactive LED display. It has uniform RGB sub-pixel arrangement (non-pentile).
8. Most underated feature could be Motorola Connect. Not much is known about this feature, but it's an app that connects the Moto X to the desktop Chrome browser (think Airdroid functionality). There might also be some new functionality for Chromecast.
9. In case you missed it, the rumored Motorola xWATCH has been shelved until a later date.
10. Moto X will probably lose out on a couple benchmark wars with the One/GS4 since it only has 2 CPU cores instead of 4, but the day-to-day performance will be comparable. All devices have the same Adreno 320 GPU, so gaming performance will also be the same.
11. I definitely contributed to building up the hype, but Moto did an excellent job of creating buzz for this launch. It will be really hard for the final product to live up to the hype we created, but it has a chance if they price it right.
12. Don't remember if this leaked, but Moto X has a SmartBoost Speaker with Smart Bass up to 3watts. Also does virtual 5.1 surround sound with headset.
13. Moto X features the same "stock Android" as seen on the new Droids, but with less carrier bloatware. There will be some Moto specific apps like the camera, and other widgets. Moto will promise faster Android upgrade cycles than other OEMs.
14. I'm not going to the launch event in NYC because Moto didn't invite me. They have not invited me to any event since I was kicked out of the launch event of their first Android phone (R.I.P. CLIQ).
15. The last Moto phone I purchased was the original RAZR. I have never bought one of their Android phones, but I'm going to buy the Moto X since it's assembled in my home state of Texas.

That's it for me today, unless someone drops one of the remaining surprises in my lap...

+kyle hoell we have milk in cartons and bottles. Although at one point they were selling milk in a bag as an environment friendly alternative. It didn't do well though so I think they stopped selling it like that.

+Ben de Guzman have you seen Milkybar packaging? I much prefer the UK packaging of them =P

Just back from a whirlwind trip to Asia visiting our Android ecosystem partners in Korea, Taiwan, and Japan. Exciting to see all the high quality Android devices available now, including Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, LG G2, Sony Xperia and many more. Also looking forward to the new devices our partners are launching in Berlin at IFA, played around with them last week and really nice  -- stay tuned; we’ve got a lot more coming!

All this Android innovation is driving tremendous ecosystem momentum and I’m excited to share that together we’ve now passed 1 Billion Android device activations. Huge thanks to the entire Android community from the hardware manufacturers, chip makers and carriers to the developers and content creators to all of you - our Android users around the world - for making this possible. 

On my return from Asia, I was also thrilled to find this guy waiting to greet me on the front lawn -- love the new #AndroidKitKat statue and can’t wait to release the next version of the platform that is as sweet as the candy bar that’s one of our team’s favorites:)

CyanogenMod 10.2 Nightlies

Not sure we'd classify the smell as an "oily clutch", but to each their own. Smells like CPU fans to us. 

Tonight, we are not building for every device we support - there are always some stragglers. The rest will come when they are given the green light and that will happen when they are ready.

Update your third party addons. Don't complain if you break your build by flashing incompatible (ie 4.2) zips on top of CM. 

These are nightlies - meaning no bug reports.

+Koushik Dutta has fired off a batch of recovery builds as well, so updated/new CWM recoveries will be available tonight as well (http://goo.gl/Ybufgh). 

As these builds are in progress (and some may fail) a full 10.2 build roster will be posted later.

Good coffee that isn't overpriced. It's pretty cozy inside when the weather's bad.

If they tell you that you have a package waiting to be picked up here, come the next day, it's probably not ready or it's somewhere else entirely. Same day will call is a joke, they shouldnt offer it if they can't through. 6pm to 7pm is the worst time to come here.

My new favorite breakfast spot. Service was very responsive even though every seat was filled. Coffee was great and the mimosas were $8 for a full 16oz. We got our seats within 5 minutes even on a Saturday morning. Both entrees we had were amazing.

This place was recently remodeled and now has a cozy tiki bar. Drink menu is more robust than other locations (great mojitos here). It also sits right next to the river. Definitely recommend the wings here too

Best place in the state for ciders! There's a ton of variety so I'd recommend getting a sampler. They do growler fills too.

This place does not do just pad / rotor work. If you need brake service and your calipers are in perfect condition, they will still say that they need to replace them. If they're brand new Brembo calipers you got the day before, it doesn't matter to them. It's wasteful and incredibly expensive. If you have expensive calipers, find a different shop. Thankfully they were honest and transparent about their policy and the employees were kind.
