    Late 2013 retina Macbook Pro 15"
    2.3gHz Intel Core i7 (Haswell)
    512GB SSD
    16GB RAM
    750M + Intel Iris Pro

    Fractal Define R4
    3.4 gHz Intel Core i5 4670K (Haswell)
    256GB SSD (Crucial M4)
    2TB HDD
    8GB RAM
    Radeon HD 6850 1GB

    Monitor
    24" Asus PA248Q Pro Art
    1920×1200

    The laptop is strictly for work and the desktop is for leisure, movies, and light gaming. That damn laptop cost me 4x as much as my entire custom desktop setup…and I’m completely happy with it.

    I will probably be using this setup for the next 5+ years since I tend to use them for a long time (my last computers were a Wolfdale Core 2 Duo and a 2006 MBP). The only thing I see myself upgrading is maybe a 4k monitor in a couple years when they get cheaper.

    Most the apps are pretty close nowadays on iOS/Android

    I think it’d be more interesting if you compared the iOS/Android vs Windows phone app just to show how far behind they truly are. To put things in perspective, Instagram is still in BETA on WP.

    I don’t have a WP anymore but at the top of my head…

    These ones are outdated/uglier looking on WP:
    - Facebook
    - Spotify

    And these will just result in a blank shot because they don’t exist on WP:
    - Any Google App (Chrome, Gmail, Youtube, Maps, Hangouts, Google Drive, Music, Keep, etc.)
    - Dropbox
    - Pocket Casts
    - most games

    I’ve been on all 4 carriers and Sprint is by far the slowest and unreliable; a real piece of hot garbage. Out of all of them, T-Mobile has actually been the fastest and the one I’ve been most satisfied with. Their growing network, fast speeds, and cheap plans will likely keep me as a customer for a long time.

    Also, Sprint is CDMA, automatic deal-breaker. Nothing quite like having a giant list of compatible phones and and not having to call up your carrier to switch phones.

    This is literally an ad generator disguised as a game that people are willing to play for hours at a time.

    It’s impossibly hard and loads a new ad every time you restart (which is usually 1-2 seconds). Almost as if he purposely created it to generate ads every 2 seconds…

    This looks like it would work really well for Oculus Rift

    That is true. Still, I would think the devs want their own halo device to test stuff on unless they’re always going to test it on 3rd party devices.

    Aside from software, there’s other reasons consumers would want a Nexus watch:

    1. Price point. They’re usually cheaper than the competition but with similar specs. I can easily see Google selling something that’s close to a Moto360 for $99 or $149
    2. Minimal Design. They’re arguably always nicer looking than OEM flagships. Nexus devices tend to be very minimal with little to no chrome, a lot of us like that

    I honestly think people’s sweet spot is just whatever the size of the phone they’re currently using is because they eventually get used to it.

    5" is my sweet spot because I have an N5. But last year, my sweet spot was 4.7" cause of the GNEX. And the year before the sweet spot was 4.3"…and so on. Even my friends that use the Note 3 say anything smaller just feels tiny now.

    A Nexus watch…count on it.

    I predict this will be another Motorola Xoom/Honeycomb situation – Moto360 will be a transition device and then flooded out by other devices in a year or two. Most technophiles and Android fans will like it at first because new and shiny, but once that wears off, they’ll start judging it with the blinders off.

    The one dealbreaker is that tiny black strip. It will gnaw at early adopters and pose as a constant reminder that their product is imperfect. Inevitably, Moto and the others are going to figure out a way to make a real full circle display, and I’m betting it will be sooner rather than later. Other manufacturers are also going to churn out better looking watches in the future. That’s my only reluctance about buying into this device this early. It’s too prototype and has first gen hardware issues written all over it.
