Got 2 of my boys new Moto E's. Motorola's little UX improvements to stock Android make a big difference without going overboard or re-skinning it like the other ODMs. My Motorola Nexus 6 feels rough and not nearly as "smart" by comparison.

Which of these cloud file services is not like the other?

I realize it's a little ironic to complain about this on Google+, but the announcement of "Google Drive for Work" really has me scratching my head. It's great that they've lowered the price and now offer unlimited paid storage, but you still can't download shared folders!! Every other service offers this! It's so...basic. It doesn't matter if you have an account, either. You can add a shared folder to your drive (if you have one / are sharing with someone who does), but if you want to download, you/they click a link that says Google will email you a .zip of it when it's ready. This is just silly and really unworkable in an enterprise setting. But hey, 5TB file uploads are allowed now.

Neat talk by Alan Kay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Kay), "The Future Doesn't Have to Be Incremental."  Approx 40 minutes if you skip to about 2:40 which is when the talk really begins.

Tidal Forces

This illustrates how the Moon causes tides on the Earth.

The Moon’s gravity pulls on each piece of the Earth, but the attractive force is a little stronger on the side facing the Moon, and a little weaker on the side opposite the Moon.  The average force is the force at the center of the Earth.

The arrows at each point show how much the attractive force differs from the average as the Moon circles the Earth. These are the tidal forces, and the result is a bulge in the ocean on opposite sides of the Earth. Earth rotates under these bulges, resulting in about two high tides each 24 hours.

Hard to see how Facebook will successfully monetize drone-internet, but it's not hard to imagine it making a killing.
