Nexus devices had a home in our house… until they didn’t. Time away makes the heart grow fonder. True.
Our home just accepted two Pixel XL Android devices from Google and early impressions are almost all positive. Nicely done Google, the original Pixel is a mighty fine piece of hardware and the software gets better often. Excited to see what’s cooking with the Pixel 2 in a couple months, until then; this XL has work to do.
After nearly a month of carrying around a device running Android 2.2, the trip down memory lane has been educational and makes this homecoming all the more special.
This is what we started with…
There were more than a few thoughts; which will be expanded later, about what Apps where there and not. Very refreshing to see Nexus sensibilities living on in the new Generation.
the machine could go no further, tramatic stress caused a break in the brain resulting in looping at boot. scheduling, product releases, founding and a touch of lazyness play their respective parts in the drawn out technodrama. the days of nexus are surely missed a glourous time before they locked away the power supply; this transittion period stinks.
for the record; the LG G4 was an unrelenting workhorse flawed by shotty sodering. a replacement is being researched, but the findings are disappointing at best and timing couldn’t have been worse.
before the tools were lost to history, space began to become an increasingly pointed topic. the belief that the pocket sized personal computer is the most productive tool in existace is still alive and kicking, but without said productivity gizmo. . . seriously this stinks. the decision to abandon non mobile computer systems well over ten years ago is becoming glaringly obvious as the correct course of action. as the eyes stare blankly at the confused mess that is Microsoft’s offering of an operating system. 10 is better than 8; but Windows is awash with horrible copies and unorginal ideas. Microsoft just be you, not android, not apple, not windows 10. the windows pc is the most versitial piece of technology most people have ever used, it works with just about everything; works with, doesn’t attempt (badly) at doing what others are doing, works with. get out of the way microsoft, be you; let yourself be you. . . not this . . .it’s sad really.
so space, a space to let ideas fester and boil is needed.
Not going to fabricate a thing, WordPress on a laptop is pretty spectacularly awesome; thanks Win10. a good chance to wipe clean and focus without the distractions. so with most things on the way back burner we begin a new, until September.
We don’t have long, the alternative has a head start; grab your snorkel.
One last push, nudging us closer to a time of deep reflection; clouded by failing memory. We did not arrive at this reality by chance; careful planning and design led us to our today.
Why are we still playing their game?
A revolt; NO, by definition the insurgents revolted and needed to be suppressed.
Mutiny; NO, again this puts us on the opposite side of “proper” authority.
Pitchforks and torches? Hmm…? NO, an angry mob equipped with sharp pointy oversized forks and fire isn’t necessary or advised.
Here’s the thing; we are not the ones that must be removed. The mutiny has already happened, the revolt occurred, folks used forks at a gathering here or a dinner there. An entire generation duped, just like the generations before; fell into the trap laid by their elders. With apathy built-in the experiment is sure to fail just as it was designed.
A new day is rising, a new center of gravity is emerging out of the lunacy we call the modern age; we are at the forefront.
It’s safe to say; “back in my day,” because the reality We have created for ourselves is quite removed from the realities that came before. Our present day reality rhymes with events of our past, but are unique to our time. We have the ability to create anything; the issue being anything in all its anythingness is pretty vague. You can be anything when you grow up; did you know that anything includes the practice of Equine Dentistry? You could be a horse dentist, but only if you knew horses needed dentists. Not a single person said “you can make millions, playing videogames,” until someone started making millions of dollars playing video games. Anything can be anything, and your anything is vastly different than someone else’s anything.
