I have a hard time believing it'll work as well as the gif below indicates, but it's a pretty neat idea.
 
Aria watch band to allow gesture controls on Android Wear and Pebble
In an effort to help you have better control of your watch without using your second hard, Aria is soon to be releasing a slick watch band attachment to let you using finger movements to control your watch.  Here’s a quick example: In the coming weeks they’ll be putting a few versions of their band …

So now people can talk into a hidden Bluetooth which makes them appear to be talking to themselves, while making strange hand gestures. I wonder what the aliens think of us.

Posting from my new Acer C720 Chromebook (thanks +Kelly Mellen!), my first Chromebook since the old CR-48.  They've come a long way!

For sub-$200, it's tough to beat.

+Vishal Laul I'll check later, but I doubt more than one or two.  It's suitably fast for browsing, and it has a decent amount of RAM for having a good number of tabs open, but it's not especially powerful.

This worries me. Not because it's AOL, per se, but because they're doing it to build "the biggest media platform in the world". No one cares about Verizon's media. We want a strong signal and a fast connection, which they currently dominate at. I'm worried this is a sign they're taking their eye off the ball...

http://www.androidcentral.com/verizon-acquire-aol-44-billion
Verizon has announced that it will acquire AOL for $4.4 billion, with the deal expected to bolster the carrier's advertising efforts in the mobile video segment. Verizon is launching an mobile-focused video service later this year, and has already inked content deals with several content providers, including the NFL. The carrier will offer paid and ad-supported tiers, which is...

We've been asked many times why we use WordPress (instead of SquareSpace, Wix, Joomla, Drupal, etc), so here my thoughts. Why do YOU use WordPress?

No skis, no poles well that's close enough to GLM. Certainly the fastest way to learn although I'm guessing GLM would avoid it snow plough.

Feeling geekier than normal today: had the girls "ride" a rollercoaster with Google Cardboard, played some old NES games via my Raspberry Pi, hooked my Chromebook up to the TV and just paid for Starbucks using my watch!

"Catch on" is an ambiguous phrase.  I don't think they're going anywhere and they'll only get more popular, but I doubt you'll ever seen 90% of the population wearing one.

For me, I fully intend to update each year or so with the latest and greatest.

The bigger question is how much functionality should they have?  While I love the watch, I think it's silly to have LTE in it for phone calls (like some of the others have).  Is that a fad that will fade, or is that where they're heading?

This article is spot-on.  EXCEPT, if you travel a lot and need fast and reliable internet on the go, just buy a portable hotspot from Verizon or AT&T (or whoever you use).  It's like $20/month, more secure than public wifi, and almost always faster.
Time to make it easy for travelers to know what they are getting.

We had to unexpected run out of town today for a family emergency, but our dog needed a shot before we could drop him off at the kennel. Sprayberry Animal Hospital got us in quickly, did the job at a great price, and even took care of some extra clean-up for us. They were quick, efficient, and friendly, and did a great job of helping us get on the road!

We've taken our dog here for a handful of overnight visits and we've been very pleased. Two things stand out: 1 -- The first time we came, they were very excited when we walked in and said "this must be Roscoe!". The fact that they were organized enough to know which dog was coming in was a big plus, and their excitement was very cute. 2 -- Last time we were coming to pick him up, our GPS said we'd be there 5-10 minutes after they close. We called ahead of time, and they happily stayed open a few minutes late to help us out, which was greatly appreciated.

Got my brakes done this morning and was very impressed. It was a busy day for them and they squeezed me in. Service was a bit slow, but understandably so. Their price for the brake service was lower than expected, which was nice. They let me know about some other things I should have done soon (tune-up, etc), but gave zero pressured when I declined. All staff I dealt with were very friendly and professional, and the waiting room was adequately nice. A small note that really helped -- they didn't adjust the seat in my car. It drives me nuts when companies move the seat to drive your car 20 feet, so I was very pleased that they left it alone. :)
