I just got the +Nextbit  Robin on Prime Day (great price, btw). But I added the Starbucks App that I use daily. Everything shows on the app, including my card number but the bar code is nowhere to be found. I already uninstalled a reinstalled but nothing. Does anyone know why and how to fix?

This is so weird ( in my limited tech experience). I changed the display from standard to dynamic and the barcode started to show. Even when I switched back to standard mode, the barcode stayed. 🤔

So, I have a dilemma. I like to wear a watch. Before smart watches, it was never anything fancy. In fact, my last dumb watch ( for a lack of a better term) was a $16.00 Target watch. But ever since I bought my first smart watches (Apple Watch & Moto 360 simultaneously) I've been pursuing the perfect smart watch (perfect for my needs, perfect for me). I want notifications and to be able to reply to them with the watch regardless of the app they come from. I want to be able to see what's on the screen whether I'm indoors or out. And although not a must have, it would be nice to make or take calls with the watch for those special occasions. Ah! And I must be able to use the watch to measure my transportation cycling (just current speed, average speed and total mileage is enough for me). I thought the Moto 360 with access to Google Fit was the solution. It wasn't. The total mileage using the watch was always wrong. And I mean 6 miles or more wrong. So I gave that one away. Then the Apple Watch. This one worked better (I own one iPhone and 3 Android phones). Mileage was accurate but I could never for the life of me remember to turn the cycling option on. Then I discovered Pebble smart watches and I fell in love. Unfortunately, I can't see them in dim light or read the screen indoors without my glasses. So I decided to give the Zen Watch 2 a try. Suffice it to say that during my bike ride today, I stopped to remove the Zen Watch and put my Pebble Time Steel back on.

I guess the solution here is for me to become a wearables engineer and create my own smart watch with my own requirements.

I did a thing with a video, a phone and an opinion.

Does anyone know why Fit will say I rode 21.4 miles and then all of the sudden change it to 19.5? I know my route is 21 miles, not 19. What gives?

Another one that bites the dust in 2016. R.I.P. CyanogenMod
 
UPDATE: As of this morning we have lost DNS routing to our domains and Gerrit is now offline - with little doubt as a reaction to our blog post yesterday. The blog post in its entirety is pasted below.

A fork in the road

Last week, we released the final CM-13.0 releases, updated to the latest security patches, in anticipation of what follows.

Yesterday, Cyanogen Inc (Cyngn) announced that they were shutting down the infrastructure behind CyanogenMod (CM). This is an action that was not unpredictable given the public departure of Kondik (cyanogen himself) from the company, and with him our last remaining advocate inside Cyngn’s leadership.

In addition to infrastructure being retired, we in the CM community have lost our voice in the future direction of CM – the brand could be sold to a third party entity as it was an asset that Kondik risked to start his business and dream. Even if we were to regroup and rebuild our own infrastructure, continuing development of CM would mean to operate with the threat of sale of the brand looming over our heads. Then there is the stigma that has grown to be attached to anything named ‘Cyanogen’. Many of you reading this have been champions of clarifying that the CM product and CyngnOS were distinct, yet the stain of many PR actions from Cyngn is a hard one to remove from CM. Given CM’s reliance on Cyngn for monetary support and the shared source base, it’s not hard to understand why the confusion remains.

It will come as no surprise that this most recent action from Cyngn is definitely a death blow for CyanogenMod.

However, CM has always been more than the name and more than the infrastructure. CM has been a success based on the spirit, ingenuity and effort of its individual contributors – back when it was Kondik in his home, to the now thousands of contributors past and present.

Embracing that spirit, we the community of developers, designers, device maintainers and translators have taken the steps necessary to produce a fork of the CM source code and pending patches. This is more than just a ‘rebrand’. This fork will return to the grassroots community effort that used to define CM while maintaining the professional quality and reliability you have come to expect more recently.

CM has served the community well over its 8 long years. It has been our home, bringing together friends from all over the world to celebrate our joy of building and giving. Its apt then that on this Eve of a holiday we pay our respects. We will take pride in our Lineage as we move forward and continue to build on its legacy.

Thank you & Goodbye,
The CyanogenMod Team

So, between the #HuaweiWatch and the #Moto360Sport, which one is the best?

I have Google Fit on my 3 Android phones. My Moto X is the one connected to my Moto 360. I commute about 21 miles by bike a day and on weekends do about 16 to 26 miles. Fit was working great until recently stopped giving accurate readings. 16 miles would turn to .9 miles. What gives?

They didn't even let us sit. We were supposed to order our food and I guess stand there with the plates on hand.
