Nice! Maybe the new Blair Witch Project sequel (The Woods) will actually be a little scary this time :)
'The Woods' was already being lauded as one of the scariest movies in years, but not it's also a sequel to 'Blair Witch.'

I stumbled across this video when searching through some of my saved favorites on Youtube. I've had this phone for a little over a year now and still love all it's features. I've had a case and screen protector on it the whole time and decided to take the case off a few days ago and go caseless. It still looks and feels brand new and removing the case made me remember just how nice of a feel and build the Moto X (2nd gen) is in my hand. To me a 5.2 inch screen is perfect. When I decide to upgrade I am not sure what I will get next since most phones keep getting bigger :/

One tip he forgot to mention is two quick shakes will turn on the flashlight :)

After I initially purchased it I changed my Moto voice command to "Wake up Agent Smith". One of the fun things I've loved to do with this phone is when someone is stubborn and doesn't like their picture taken, I ask them to hold my phone and look at the screen, then say "Wake up Agent Smith, take a selfie" lol. Before they realize what's going on it snaps their picture ;)

Talon and the Twitter Token Limit

Inevitably, I have gotten a lot of questions the last few days about Talon in relation to the token limit, after Fenix recently ran out.

So to sum it up: yes, Talon still has plenty of tokens available. We are not in jeopardy of running out any time soon.

As a Twitter developer, however, the token limit is something you always know is there and cannot ignore. What happens when you reach it is up to the individual developer. When Talon reaches that limit, I have no intention of releasing another version as I did last time.

As for what will happen to the current app when it does reach that limit, I think that the past year and a half speaks for itself as to what I will do. The classic version of Talon has continued to receive new features and regular updates, despite hitting that limit in October of 2014.

So, will Talon hit the limit? Yes, eventually, but not anytime soon. Will Talon continue to be supported after that limit? Instead of me giving you that answer, I would hope that my current work speaks volumes on its own.

If I didn't love my work, then I would have quit a long time ago. I love what I can make and I love what I can do with a few short keystrokes. I don't see that changing for a very long time. Talon is so much more than just a product for me and that is why I put so much time into supporting it (and it's users) and so much time into making it better.

Mark Zuckerberg famously claimed that privacy was no longer “a social norm,” but the new social norm may not long survive the coming of the Internet of Things.

I keep getting asked why I am switching factions so this pretty much sums it up...lack of competition in my area. I plan on changing that!
