For some time now I have been searching the web looking for more information as to why my MOTO 360 will not vibrate to let me know I have received emails, texts or calls. I recently upgraded from the HTC one M8 to the Samsung Galaxy S6 where it started with no notifications when receiving TEXT messages. Later is was on incoming calls. The MOTO 360 would light up but not vibrate at all. Most recently receiving Gmail.
I have performed factory resets countless times and I have un-installed and re-installed Android Wear related apps on my phone. Nothing worked! I was at the end of my rope until I found an article about how the Gmail app was not vibrating as well and had to be adjusted in settings. It did the trick!
Who knew that turning on the vibration under the notifications actually allowed the MOTO 360 to vibrate? That said I also found this to be true in Textra (my preferred texting app) and in my phone settings. Locating the notification setting in each app then turning it on
It’s interesting to hear that Samsung’s profits are down again. It’s said they forecasted much higher than what their demand was on the new phones. I got news for you Samsung, you are not Apple with a cult like following. In Apple’s defense their new phones were a significant change over their previous phones. Their larger screens gave users what they wanted. Although the new Samsung phones are top quality I feel that the Android market is flooded with new and better devices far too often to keep up, let alone the ability to upgrade as often as something new hits. They are just too expensive to repeatedly replace them.

Comcast-Time Warner Cable deal is dead
Comcast and Time Warner Cable’s decision to end Comcast’s proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable is in the best interests of consumers. The proposed transaction would have created a company with the most broadband and the video subscribers in the nation alongside the ownership of significant programming interests.
All About Emoji
Forget typing emoticons on your smartphone, they’re so 2013. Emojis are where it’s at these days and the vast array available — from simple smileys to smiling poo — means that there’s an emoji for everyone. Here’s how to find the most obvious and the most obscure.
As an owner of a Moto 360 its great to see it still have a life and continues to get better. I am the kind of person that keeps his phone on silent so getting these little alerts helps me to respond in a timely manner when a message is received.
If you are like me and are checking out the world of Android Wear you might want to take a look at some of these apps.
I know that there are a lot of articles out there and I wanted to capture what I felt the top 10 tech items for 2013 were. In no particular order…
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Ridicule gargantuan tablets all you want. The Galaxy Note 3 may sport a gigantic 5.7-inch screen, but all that screen real estate is awesomely useful, the smartphone offers great battery life, and the included S-Pen stylus is incredibly useful if you like taking longhand notes.
A 2.3GHz processor and 3GB of RAM help power this massive device, and what you end up with is a smartphone that practically eliminates the need for a 7-inch tablet.
Massive smartphones aren’t going away—and the more we use them, the more we like them. And the Note 3 is pretty much the best “tablet phone” around.
