Loving the new Motorola

My Moto X downloaded the newest version of Android 4.4. Kit-Kat this afternoon, and that's a very nice update turnaround time for both Moto and Verizon Wireless.

Hopefully an already good phone is going to get even better.

Great sunsets this time of year

Are they sure they have the right Kate?

Playboy announced Kate Moss is doing a nude photo shoot for their pages.

  And while she's certainly got a look, I'm guessing a Kate Upton nude photo shoot might sell a little better.

Yay technology

My smart phone history: 4 years ago, far left, the simply named DROID by Motorola, this is the phone widely accepted to be the one that put the Android platform on the map. Two years later the Droid Bionic, also by Motorola - faster, thinner with a bigger and better screen. Both still work great although not activated now, obviously, because of my new baby...the Motorola X, which blows them away in speed, screen, camera and weight. And it was just announced the X will be getting the new Android 4.4. Kit-Kat system in a few weeks. Even better, I was able to get it on that Verizon website glitch a few weeks ago which allowed me to upgrade to it at the subsidized price and still keep my unlimited data. Good times.

And I still don't like it

Holy shit, how many times is Google going to tell me to check out the new way to find my Google products. I get it.

United Airlines, really? I mean, really?

I decided to take a well-deserved break to Las Vegas in July using my United Airlines miles. They charged me 100,000 miles AND $75 on top of it. Here's the thing: in May I did the same trip on Virgin America. They only charged 50,000 miles and NOTHING on top of it. And not for nothing, Virgin America First Class is MUCH better than United. Why are they so greedy? United is the airline that sometimes doesn't put toilet paper on board their flights. Friendly skies indeed.

They just don't give up

I like to check the spam box of my gmail once in a while just to see what's in there. Today there's a message from The Office of the Presidency of the United Nations, a message from Luis Santiago telling me I've won a BMW, from William Cheung offering me a "business proposal," and from Adriana alerting me to the fact that she's "feeling frisky today." Now obviously I will reply to Adriana, but the rest are just silly. Seriously, though, does anyone ever fall for these things? I suppose when email and the Internet were fairly new some of the more gullible out there might have been fooled by some of the more artful emails, before the word spam even meant anything except canned meat. But does anyone today really believe the emails from the deposed Foreign Minister of Nigeria saying he's spirited $40 million in gold bullion from the country and just needs your bank info so he can deposit it and split the money with you, because, you know, why wouldn't he? These scammers must make some money or they they wouldn't keep doing it, but who the hell is falling for them?
