    I liked Google's approach on smartwatches, then I read above article. I don't think I am ready for that yet.

    You're funny. Politicians caring? Especially career politicians? Who are millionaires? Ha!

    The political climate in the US is a complete mess. Is it a true reflection of the people? I highly doubt it. I believe many people don't really think about who they vote for or why. The democrats are not really left anymore and the republicans have gone extreme. Their policy is simply block everything and then use Fox News as a means of telling everyone how bad the democrats are.
    Sahib, the speaker of the house suing the president for inaction is a politrickian practicing polifiction at its finest - using fear and diversionary tactics to defect the attention from the people's work that really needs to get done.

    I think I may have told this story here, but it bares repeating: I was in a public speaking class in NYC in 2004, during the height the Kerry v G.W. Bush elections. So politics came up and this young type A athletic looking male Jewish lawyer in the group started talking about the candidates and I shrugged my shoulders in apathy. So the facilitator asked me "I see you shrug your shoulders. What's going through your mind?"

    My response: "I find it quite sad to see that I left one apathy inducing political experience (in my home country) only to travel 3400 miles to find the same thing here."

    Funny you responded to Sahib quoting me but that's ok. :P I know you're using the app so things like that happen. :P

    I've lived in four countries and traveled to many more. I think politics has become the same everywhere. The only ones making the most noise are the right lately and people notice. The left or center left look like meek dogs with a tail between their legs. No substance and not really saying much anymore. I almost feel like people have lost all interest in social care and reason and seem to think that high level conservatism needs to be imposed on the country again. Sad. Even here in the UK the far right has gained, sadly.

    Actually, I did that on purpose. Thought it was easier than to double quote and save Sahib time for looking back at what he posted since his original comment was so short. 😊

    Yup, it is all the same everywhere. The politrickians don't,really care about the people's work, and the few good ones constantly get voted down. It's why many adopt this defending their home constituents idea that allows them (especially senators here) to be in power for years and year and years.

    I guess what really baffles me is how so many people in the US actually vote against policies that would actually make their lives better. I haven't quite figured that one out yet. Here in the UK and even when I was in Australia as a populace starts to feel more secure in their work and money is flowing again care for others and community tends to go down the drain. I wonder how much study has been done on this phenomenon. I know similar things happen in the US and Canada. I just find it strange in countries like the UK and Australia which appear on the surface to provide help for those in need seem to get nasty as more and more millionaires are made (usually by property).

    The thing with the US os that the politrickians here are excellent at the polifiction art of word manipulation. This allows them to hide the true impact of a policy in plain sight of many voters who are overloaded with the other aspects of American life. While people care for competence, they will also pick things like charismatic, toughness etc...which cannot be clearly articulated through policies.

    Sadly much of the voting populous here is like that: gullible not out of lack of intelligence, but out of how society is set up.

    The hotel I'm staying in has 4 stars. The room is actually split in two rooms, a sleeping room and a living room. The wardrobe you can enter and walk in...

    And everything for free. Good times.

    Yeah it's a bit strange but at the same time I think it's good. I should pay more attention to what's going on with Android as I'm half in there. :P

    I just got the 4.4 update this morning.

    While I don't root as much as I used to, because of the Prince I keep tabs on what's happening there. I thought about getting an i-Device for that purpose, but I don't need a doorstop as yet...

    Well let's be real, there are some really 'interesting' individuals in the US and yes I know they exist in other countries as well, the US just seems to have an abundance of them.

    As for the ignorance, I think it's partially laziness and partially conforming to societal norms within the community. Some of those red states are red simply because they are red. LOL. :P They can't seem to vote any other way. :P

    But WP and WMExperts definitively weren't around then so it has to be some error when the forum post was made.

    Sahib, got some work for you today. Listen to these and give me some feedback. Google to find the lyrics and I can translate stuff as needed:

    Look (into my eyes) - Bounty Killer
    Anytime - Bounty Killer
    Fed Up - Bounty Killer
    Land of Promise - Nas, Damian Marley, Dennis Brown
    Inner City Blues - Marvin Gaye
    Revolution - Dennis Brown
    Sitting and Watching - Dennis Brown
    All in the Same Boat - Freddie McGregor

    Sorry but a taste of social commentary from a different lens is always a good thing...

    I think the flatness is just a trend after glossy got boring. This time Microsoft was just faster in implementing it, with glossy it was late and bad ;-)

    Oh, everywhere has that blind party allegiance. That sort of stuff was what I saw a lot of growing up back home and got sick of it. Unfortunately there is such a disconnect between the major leaders here and the voters. The politrickians here care about getting enough numerical votes to pass legislation over anything else. There are times for positive laws such tactics are helpful but in most cases, it is simply being honorable amongst thieves.

    I really want a smartwatch, Google messes with my mind!

    But I don't want to talk to my watch, this is not Knight Rider after all. ;-)

    Edit: And before these watches don't get a few days of battery life I won't buy one anyway.

    There was a time when we would have thought all of this is cool. Now being older we understand the implications of it.

    A smartwatch is a great idea. Once the battery can last long enough I may consider it. Until then I'll just ignore them.
