    FIFA approved testings for 'video technology' that'll be used by referees in real time on the field, in season 2016-2017.
    Now i wonder why haven't they done this years ago, cause technology has been part of NFL for some time now.

    There was always a need. The number of occasions where a referee mistake or player's faking has determined the outcome of the match is just ridicolous. I'm talking about European, World cup, Champions League etc. The excuse for not using any of the technology was that they didn't want to loose 'the authenticity and tradition of the game'.
    They tryed to compensate by adding two extra referees behind the goal lines, which turned out to be a totally bad idea, since even those line idiots would not be able to see what actually happened.

    I'm just waiting to see what'll happen.

    With all the people howling at how slow both Samsung and the carriers are, to me it still says a lot when my GF on her Verizon branded Note 5 got 6.0 today and me on my Maxx unlocked still cannot even sniff 5.1.1. Now the VZW version of my phone - the Droid Turbo - hasn't gotten the update yet. In fact, only last week did Droid Turbo 2 owners on Verizon got the upgrade.

    Still, it says a lot to me. I like Moto, really did, but if I get a G4, it's going to get a lot more use than my Maxx.

    From what I saw, Moto G 2014 users are next on the list.

    Huh? I make "beats" because I enjoy it. This MIDI controller keyboard thing is something new I've been playing with, but I've been composing and recording music as a guitar player for well over 30 years. It's something I love doing and will continue to do, with or without any monetary gain. You want to buy something?

    lol "beats"...


    Here's one small collection of some of my original recordings. Varied styles.. All for fun!

    There's also a link in my sig to my YouTube channel where I have a bunch of videos of various cover songs I do on the guitar....

    lol it's ok.

    The site(s) I've been using to host some of my music (soundclick.com and soundcloud) do have options to "monetize" my music, but I've never really been into all that. I'm too lazy to keep up with it all really.. I rather play for personal enjoyment, and occasionally share some of my works/recordings.

    I honestly haven't checked on my songs at soundclick in a while. Some of them have made it up the charts. One made it to #11 on their alternative chart, out of 186k + songs.. that made me feel pretty good!

    this one:
