My friend rated an app 3/5 because he didn't get an invite to review it. Sigh. /facepalm

He didn't get an invite to review it?!?! And yet he still gave them THREE!! He's a better man than I. I would have given them a ONE!

A lot of hate going on for the HTC one m9 because there wasn't enough change compared to m8. Can I ask what kind of change was needed to make the phone better? It's getting a better camera and internals already, so that else needs to change? Specifics please. :)

Has anyone experienced issues accepting meeting invitations through the Google Calendar mobile app?

I can't accept or even at least view the invitation in the app. Very frustrating.

To be honest I went through and unchecked and then rechecked all the boxes one at a time until it finally worked. My wife had the same issue as we share our calenders with each other,
Since we've both tried, all seems ok. Sorry if it seems vague, but that's honestly what I, we done tried.

While many say that Apple is evil and that their software could use many improvements to be as awesome as Android, there's no denying that Apple has also done many things very right - things that we wish Android OEM's should really learn. 

http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/27/apple-iphone-sales-q1-2015/
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have helped Apple sell an astounding 74.5 million iPhones during the first quarter of the company's fiscal 2015 year. That's more..

The only reason why Apples sales did good is because they released TWO phones one of which was a close to 6inch phone covering a large market.

Somewhat related to android - wanted to get your opinions on this!
 
What do you guys think of this article? I thought glass was able to super impose data on top of things at the right time, but Forbes is saying it failed because it just wanted people to give Google data. 
Now that the Google Glass prototype has been withdrawn from the market, the company has reportedly moved it from research into product development. Consumer fashion and retailing experts have been tasked with refining a look that some in the market labeled “Glasshole” and, according to critics of its marketing, left many more [...]

1) You can tell how old the blogger is with his suggestion that Glass made with content creators in mind is a bad idea.
2) Based on the apps he suggested, I want to ask him if he’d used one before or know how to use one. (However, if not being easily usable by a non-techie/old person is the issue then that is something worth looking at by Google. The older generation market is huge and they’re used to paying for stuffs. They’re a good market.)
3) He also seemed to have read “too many” negative blogs on Glass. I’ve read news about Google Glass team working with the medical community (and other professional fields) yet here he is suggesting that it must be utilized for that purpose.
Anyways, Forbes had always been anti-Google so I wasn’t surprised with this blog.

Does your phone slow down to a crawl when updating apps while using the phone to do other things (email, twitter, g+, etc.) at the same time?

My phone is pretty much unusable when updates are happening due to the intense lag. It's quite annoying. I've factory reset my phone multiple times already and the issue isn't as apparent at the beginning, but the lag returns eventually.

My Note 3 runs just fine during updates.
Maybe a little warm, but it doesn't mess with the performance any.

Android history animation
Just a quick animation of all Android version sweets. Can you name them all?


Sorry for the texture on the animation, I had problems removing it because the animation is too long.
