Apparently you can't add custom watchfaces to #AndroidWear devices.  This is why I cancelled my LG G preorder.

I can't believe they made such an Apple-esque move.  I'm sticking with my #Pebble which allows customization.

I hate G+.  I had a great rant about something else I hate and it closed the window without saving a draft.

Nokia, why the hell would anybody want these?

http://www.engadget.com/2014/02/24/nokia-announces-the-x-its-first-android-phone/

You've got too little memory, too little storage (an SD-card doesn't really fix that) and shitty screen resolution.  On top of that it's forked Android so no Google Play meaning every app you buy for it is useless everywhere else.  Therefore there is no synergy between your phone and your tablet. 

Has anyone at Nokia given this a second of thought?  Your crappy phones will fail, you'll blame Android and realize you should have stuck with Microsoft who doesn't allow stupid modifications like you're making.

Yep. I'm confused. Although they might work on the really cheap markets, but I'm not so sure.

It's interesting the annoyance generated when you treat some of your customers different than others.  Some people get access to the new App store, others are told to wait.  Quite a psych experiment.

First world problem? Absolutely but also not a way to create loyalty amongst people who support you.

Would Pebble be kind enough to tell we smelly, uneducated, second-classed Android users when we might get access to the App store like our privileged iOS siblings? Knowing the time frame would help the wait.

+Steven Law I think all this back and forth about who has the best shiny thing is pathetic. I like android and iOS. I used iOS for years, then had a windows phone and been with my nexus 4 since it's release. I used to think like you Steven but I was wrong. I love android now and if iOS doesn't up it's game I don't think I will leave android for a while.

As Mark Twain once put it: "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so."

I saw that in a Slashdot article and thought it stood very well on its own.

Does anyone know how to stop people's +1s from showing up in my timeline?  It just adds to the noise.

At this time Opera Max is not available for my 2 devices; the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013).  Why would those devices be excluded?  The Nexus 7 is one of the best and most popular Android tablets, it seems really weird to disallow it.

A friend of mine shared this privately so I'll protect his privacy and pretend like I found this myself.

Fanboy-ism is stupid, I don't really understand it.  At times I'll take the anti-fanboy role and speak out against Apple or Microsoft but that's really just to annoy my friends; it's meant to be in fun and taken with a grain of salt.

Real, true, honest, hostile, angry fanboys make no sense to me.  Why would someone waste so much energy and emotion supporting a mega-corporation who couldn't care less about them?  When they leave a snarky comment on YouTube about how only fucktards use iPhones or suggest fellating Bill Gates is the right way to honor Win8, do they think anyone cares?  Do they  think Apple or Microsoft has added them to a list of cool people who they'd love to give free devices to?  Allow me to clear this up.

No, they don't give a rat's ass what any of us say, think or do as long as they make money.  Money they'll never share with us.  See how this works.  They don't care about you.  As long as you keep buying their products you can do and say almost anything you want, it won't make a lick of difference in the grad scheme of things.

Fanboys, you're wasting your time and it's embarrassing.  Stop.
