I love history, politics, current events, and tech. My dream girlfriend would call me at 3 AM to tell me about a new leak of a tech device.

The US always gets a pass when it comes to the civilians it kills. Is America above the law? It sure acts like it. Had this been anoher country, they would've probabl bombed them by now. #AmericanHypocrisy

Does anyone know a well-built, bluetooth, backlit, chiclet style keyboard for a Chromebox that is under $80? 

For the first time in a long time, I was genuinely impressed with Microsoft. Their Windows 10 press conference went very well, and the idea of a unified OS is a good one. 

The Microsoft I saw at the press conference was not the same one that I knew even just a few years ago. The new Microsoft is more youthful, playful, and energetic. It's a more fun Microsoft. A Microsoft with a vision of the future. A company I actually believe in again.

"Google doesn't care about AOSP any more. Google supported an open OS when it suited them and they needed the support of the community to grow. Now they dominate the OS wars. The want to close and control the OS as much as they can."

It's quite clear that AOSP is essentially dead. And for all of the Google fanboys saying "AOSP is separate from Google's Android so who cares?", you can no longer claim Android is open. Slowly but surely, Android is becoming a closed operating system, no different than iOS which you love to criticize.

I think it's time to take a stand and demand that Google pay more attention to AOSP.

Amazon made something pretty cool. #amazonecho

Days after America set the clock back an hour, we have now set it back decades. I am very disappointed in the direction the country took tonight, particularly Arkansas.

I will never vote for any candidate that has the support of the Koch brothers. I'm looking at you Tom Cotton. They are a cancer that has infected our democracy and the people of Arkansas just allowed that cancer a victory.

If there is anything good to come out of this, it is that they can no longer blame Obama for everything. Republicans now control the Judicial and Legislative branches of government. The only one they don't control is the Executive branch. This means that if something goes wrong, aren't they to blame? After all, they do control the majority of our government.

I love Google+, but I'm a little concerned that Google is slowly losing interest in its social network. Now, I'm not bashing Google or Google+. I love Google and I think Google+ is one of its best services. However, it doesn't seem to be as important as it used to be. Ron Amadeo from Ars Technica seems to agree. So here's my question to all of you. Do you think, say, five years from now, Google+ will still be here? Ten years from now? Will it become bigger than Facebook and regain its level of importance to Google? Or will it eventually be shut down?

I am loving the new design of the Play Newsstand app. I can't wait for Android L to be released so we can enjoy Material Design across all of Google's apps.
