As a Santa of nearly 40 years, I have always come up against the honesty versus myth challenge. As an ardent believer as a child, recalling how powerful and wonderful that fantasy was—watching the sky from the back of the station wagon for the sleigh and reindeer, going to bed at 5 o'clock on Christmas Eve with elves… » 12/17/14 11:27am 12/17/14 11:27am

Those of us with Moto X have gotten used to controlling our phone and doing things without touching our smart watches. Apple's Siri still requires you to reach for and touch your watch.

I just went to Best Buy to touch this thing. SO much more beautiful than I had even hoped. I have one burning question, though. Can the 360 display heart rate constantly so that I can see it at a glance whenever I'm exercising?

I jumped from iPhone to the Moto X. I see it's getting KitKat! With the second camera software upgrade, my Moto is rockin'. I laugh at the Nexus 5 price. My God, I paid $149 for 32GB and customized the phone my way.

Truly, I was expecting to have to compromise with the Moto x after my iPhone life. But Moto X has… » 10/31/13 9:12pm 10/31/13 9:12pm

When the roll is backwards, the paper hangs down against the wall, probably 4 inches FURTHER away. To place that precious tissue any further away than necessary results in a possibly dangerous and definitely precarious lean, lifting the buttocks further off the seat and risking leakage or even tumbling to the… » 10/10/13 2:34pm 10/10/13 2:34pm

There's little doubt about it. The IBM Model M keyboard from the 80's is the finest in history. I've been using one (once again) for about 6 years. Incredible action. Noisy. Wicked fast. The penultimate QWERTY layout.

This is the real deal.
