google panda autono-cab car

Now there are exceptions to this of course, but when I tell people that in five years they will no longer need a new car, I get a look like I’m nuts.  But once I explain that you are getting a new(ish) car and its a ‘need’ not want, then they are a little less… Read More


Just read that in June Microsoft will release their voice assistant Cortana for Android and iOS.  This is great for those of us who want to try something new who use Android and Google Now search, which is very good, but sometimes you want something a little more conversational. For my friends who have been complaining about Siri not… Read More

Ok, so this article on driver-less cabs just popped up saying NY’s Mayor de Blasio just signed with Google to have them put out a fleet of 5000 driver-less cars in Brooklyn and Queens.  They will be called Zippie.  Nice.  And that is not all; order now and get an ATM machine, vending machine spitting… Read More

Its been 24 hours since the Apple Watch debut.  Now that we have seen more pictures of the watch and learned a bit more about it, I think I can finally give my impressions.  This of course is tempered by the fact I have not seen it in person and there are still things we… Read More

That was quick!  As soon as the Moto 360 smart watch went on sale it sold out.  What does that tell us in the wearable world?  That looks matter!  I have been pounding on this point over and over again, and just yesterday when I wrote about the Samsung gear 2 s, looking better, but… Read More

Last week at Google I/O, they sprang a cardboard phone holder that basically turn your smartphone into a VR HMD display device.  Its extremely  cleaver, and was quite the hit.  So much so, there is a strong demand for these guys even a week later.  Now we are hearing rumors that a plastic version of… Read More

Did anyone watch the Google IO conference broadcast, or better yet, was there?  Hope you are enjoying your watches.  But more importantly, are you enjoying your cardboard HMD?  I have to admit, that caught me by surprise, but very cool!  But the point of the VR glasses is to demonstrate Google’s VR Build Kit. I… Read More


Like we used to see when Apple released a new iPhone it would sell out very quickly, then on ebay and craigslist there will be a flood of posts of people selling for .5, 1 or even 4x the original price.   I have a feeling the same thing is going to happen with Glass.  Even… Read More

Although Google will not directly build the watch themselves, they are working with HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung.  A bit surprised Samsung is working with them given they have their own watch, but there you go.  I may have said this before, but I think watches running the Android wearable system will have a leg… Read More

I had no idea about this, but here is the warning directly from Chrome. When you login into any computer, Chrome will download all your sync information and store it on that computer.  Even when you log out!  You have to actually DELETE the account to get rid of this information.

This just seems to be the week for things breaking on my site.  For awhile now I have been getting an error when I go to this site from my service provider. Not Extended A mandatory extension policy in the request is not accepted by the server for this resource. A very odd error. A… Read More

This drove me nuts for awhile. I have Google Apps so my GMail account is not  No matter what I tried, I could not get Outlook to connect to my GMail account which has 2-step verification turned on. After doing quite a bit of research I finally figured it out. You need to set… Read More

The Wall Street Journal reported that Google Watch is just a few months away as they reach out to Chinese manufactures.  They also supported the rumor it will run Android integrated with Google Now.  Makes sense of course.  They have been working on Google Now for a while, have it working with Google Glass, so… Read More

I have the Pebble watch and love it especially now that I have finally made the jump from iPhone to Android, but that is another story.  The Pebble watch has not lived up to the hyped expectations, but it has performed the basics.  And its the basics that makes the Pebble great. And then comes… Read More

The jailbreaking of Google Glass (glassbreak?) is good, and bad.  For those who remember back in the iphone1 days, there was all this panic that it would open the door to massive abuse, the phone could be bricked and even the whole network can be taken down …  Still waiting for that to happen. Instead,… Read More

Seriously?!! Apple is already planning on making a new iPhone? If the iPhone5 what such a crash and burn (as alot of people think), shouldn’t they be taking a a little time to improve on some of the features that the iPhones are lacking? Android OS has quite a few things that put them ahead… Read More

apple maps suck

I wrote a few days after the release of iOS6 that I would not be updating because Apple maps suck and told my readers that if you use maps ALOT, like I do, do not update until they fix it… or until Google releases an app. And they did.   And now people are upgrading to… Read More
