It has been a while isnce I updated so forgive me if some of this is dated but I just wanted to talk about the things that caught my eye or ears or ...whatever
1. Chromebook updates- I am sure windows is nervous because it seems as though there is a new buddy in town. All of the big vendors from lenovo, toshiba, to hp are making their own version of the chromebook. The chromebooks range from arm low powered arm chips, mid range atom refreshed bay trail processors, and surprising cheaper haswell. For non geeks this means the chromebooks will be able to run longer on the battery, run faster, and have better graphics! I love my Acer A7, its my go to machine for creating content because most of what I do is using google apps. This will just make things smoother for me when I ad a linux os on the side.
2. Possible Nexus 5 FCC leak - this was pretty cool people seem to be freaking out like it was an iphone. I see android fanboys can be just as passionate. I found myself clicking on every story I seen mentioning the nexus 5. That speaks a lot when your device gained so much loyalty, people cant wait to the next iteration. You have previously only seen that on the iphone and recently galaxy.
3. iphone 5c preorders- it is a lot to this story because what people are not talking about is the fact that I don't hear anything about iphone 5s orders ? Why not? Does apple realize that the announcement is underwhelming? Are they trying to build up a artificial sense of demand? I don't know , i guess I am a hypocrite because I seem to be excited about a processor bump to chromebooks when it is the same thing but I made fun of apple! I guess its just hard for those on top!
4. new windows 8.1 devices - i heard something about Asus coming with an 8.1 transformer type device for about $350! Wow if this is the case I am definitely interested. The problem with windows tablets is the price. The low price of android tablets helped people leave their comfort zone of the ipad but the surface was too expensive. As a government employee who is forced to use windows at work, I think I would like to have a portable device that runs windows and windows product. I have to admit though Im interested, it will be hard for me to part from my nexus!
5. Nexus LTE is here! - Im so excited! I have talked often about how I wish I had a device to rule them all, I was excited about the note 3 and I got really excited about the Sony Ultra Z but I have been waiting on the Nexus 7 LTE. I heard that tmobile will give a free month when you activate the sim card that it comes shipped with. I currently subscribe to verizon lte for my old ipad but I would love to switch it out. I now face the hard part. I need to seel my nexus devices so I can purchase a lte nexus 7 and maybe a cheap flip for backup. Any body want a nexus package? I need like 400 to cover tax. Leave comments for suggestions and let me know will using this as a phone and tablet will be a good choice!
This blog should be a safe place for anyone who wants to talk, read, listen, and experience technology in safe GOD fearing way. I am a believer and follower of JESUS CHRIST MY LORD AND SAVIOR WHO I BELIEVE CAME DOWN AS GOD IN THE FLESH TO SHED BLOOD SO WE MAY BE MADE RIGHT WITH GOD AND HE WILL ACT AS WITNESS ON OUR BEHALF BECAUSE NO MAN CAN GET TO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BUT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST and it is those who believe mission to spread this message of love to all people for GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD! I strive to live righteously and I pray you do to and understand that we should do that in all that we do even when we are enjoying my favorite hobby, all things tech! that's why I am a techie in CHRIST I am a tech nerd that is grounded in the LORD. GOD BLESS !

Microsoft brought Nokia - Wowzers this set the Internet on fire with thousands of nerds looking! I hear many saying this makes no since for Microsoft because it was almost as if nokia was exclusively tied to Microsoft anyway. Some say it was rumors that Nokia was debating jumping to the free android platform on some if you like microsoft put a ring on it! haha sorry
Kitkat - Android new operating system will be called kitkat, its funny people was angry because it was a 4.4 rather than a 5.0 but numbers is just numbers right, as long as it adds functionality and improvements what are you mad at? hmmm are people growing weary of android like they where until IOS 7 ? I guess this shouldn't be a big issue because most people android is different due to samsung and htc clones, but us nexus folk is another monster. Leave a comment if you have time of what you would want to see.
Acer 6 inch - the bigger news is that thing can record 4k . Wow the unfortunate thing is that no one has a 4k tv! So whats the point? Lets put it in the boast category, and that's not it, its only dwarfed by the 6.3 mega from what I know , and a quad core 2.2 i think processor makes a techie drewl. I just never heard of acer phones, i know some people hate acer, including myself until I had the pleasure of using the c7 chromebook. I am typing on it now and I literally smile and make a mental note on how much I love the computer every time I use it and its been 2 months! I guess you can say im excited!
apple invite for sep 10th event - i thought i broke the apple curse now that im google all the way but its something about apple in the press or maybe its the crowd or whatever but the invite prompted me to watch a youtube video as a refresher on what to expect with ios7 and things looked so much more awesome than it did this summer at wwdc. I guess its the hype that gets us, GOD FORGIVE ME! The flyer had colors that seem to relate to the leaked photos of colors that supposedly come with the new cheaper iphone 5c. This isn't much a surprise because of the business since outside us for Tim Cook at the risk of loosing the luxury mystique of apple. Also this the phone most influenced by Johny Ive at his new position of authority and we know he was one of the major player behind the star burst macs!
Verizon buys out vodaphone- this is more of a business story but I guess I preferred personally American own corps like at&t despite hating giving them my business also. I know that is somewhat a old way of thinking especially knowing that in the international market very few corporations are truly or at least purely American. We are in a global economy but I am curious what will Verizon do now without outside influence.
xbox one features- xbox one is finally getting back in the news for good things, like for me personally, the nfl app will include red zone, which is fun to work with especially because the men in my family play a friendly game off office pickem each weak. It also has espn updates. The coolest thing I saw is support for 8 controllers, I don't have an idea off hand why would this be needed but what if madden had controls for a coop 8 captains.(qb, rb, 2 wides/ corners, mlb, de) wow or marvel heroes.
