The passing of a great staff member and friend! (Danvee)

Feb 03, 2015 - 10:18 PM - by CR6
It is with a heavy heart that I forward you the sad news in regards to the passing of a good friend and staff member Dan. (Danvee) He passed away yesterday afternoon due to a heart attack. Our thoughts & prayers are with his family!

Dan was an extremely valuable staff member on many of our forums.... including the S3, S4, S5, Nexus & Thrive forums just to name a few. His dedication and hard work helping members, and keeping with our goal of a "family friendly" forum was something he thoroughly supported and enjoyed, and his time here will not be forgotten.

Oftentimes we don't realize the daily struggles of our fellow forum friends, as we usually only see one side of their lives. But Dan wasn't one to often discuss his own problems, but was always one to help others with theirs.

Dan spent so much of his free time on the forums I often wondered if he ever slept. [emoji2] He was usually one of the first members to post in the morning and one of the last to comment at night. When he wasn't busy sniffing out spammers (and man, he was one of THE best at doing this!) he was participating in one of our many threads providing help and guidance to our members, or simply discussing daily life issues in one of our many off topic threads. He was a master at finding THE perfect picture to convey his thoughts, as well as the perfect "comeback" or response in our hilarious "banned" thread. He had a unique and interesting outlook & opinion on so many of our threads & topics over the years and his quick wit will truly be missed. His ability to spread his time across so many of our forums at once was astounding.

We thank Dan for both the time he spent as a staff member, as well the time he spent making us smile. Our thoughts are with Dan's family as they mourn.

Let us celebrate Dans life and be thankful for the time he shared with us. Please take a moment (If you'd like) to share a thought, a funny moment or memory you have of Dan. [emoji2]

RIP my friend.

[Announcement] Summertime Contest Winners 2014

Aug 10, 2014 - 1:00 AM - by CR6
I'd like to thank everyone for partcipating in our annual Summertime Photo Contest! We had some amazing photos submitted this year and choosing a winner was difficult. In the end, I had to have a third party choose the winner based on overall picture quality and composition.

As a reminder, first place receives a $20 Amazon gift card, with the runner up receiving a $10 Play Store credit.

The winning photo was taken by pchain!
(View of Snail Bay in Fayette Historic State Park through the windows of what's left of an old stone general store from the late 1800's.)




Our runner up is VoiceGuy with an Iowa cornfield.



I'll send each winner a PM tomorrow (Sunday) with information for your prizes.

Thank you all for submitting such great photos!!

RIP Nexus 5. You shall be missed. Google announced that they are no longer selling the LG-made Google Nexus 5 on the Google Play Store. It's a shame they decided to focus only on the Nexus 6. While that is an outstanding device, its size is a bit unwieldy for some users. For many of us, the 5-inch display on the Nexus 5 is... [Read More]

What an interesting industry shakeup to find in my inbox this morning. Apparently, the very top of HTC has been rearranged. Peter Chou stepped down as CEO of HTC, and Cher Wang has taken over the position. If you remember the HTC One M9 event, Cher Wang shared some of the demo time with Peter Chou. Maybe this was meant as a... [Read More]

In what will undoubtedly be disappointing news to some, Motorola Mobility's President, Rick Osterloh, recently shared on Twitter that Motorola has no plans to build any Android tablets. He did take a moment to steer us toward Lenovo's offerings, which is... [Read More]

It looks like the launch of the Apple Watch made several different industries stand up and take notice. While Samsung, Motorola, LG and others have been busily making smartwatches, none of the big named Swiss watch makers have really paid much attention. That is, until now. TAG Heuer, one of the most well-known watch companies out... [Read More]

Tomorrow is a big day for Samsung. They just announced that pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be available at all major US carriers & Best Buy starting tomorrow (March 27th). On top of this, you will also be able to see a preview of the device at most Best Buy locations around the country. The pricing details for... [Read More]

And the wheel of time circles back around again... Google I/O 2015 invites have already started rolling out to email inboxes across the globe, at least for folks who signed up for Google’s big IO raffle. The first wave of invites need to be accepted and paid for by Thursday, March 26th. The entry fee is a stout $900, but students... [Read More]

Here's some very slick news in the field of digital assistants (aka budding AI overlords). Microsoft announced they are planning to offer a stand alone Cortana app and will make it available for both Android and iOS. On top of that, Microsoft is working toward taking Cortana to the next level by improving her functions with their artificial intelligence... [Read More]

Google's latest video ad for their Android Wear products is making the rounds across the interwebs. This latest one ups the ante on the fancy dance moves, but it actually makes sense in a strange and abstract way. It actually becomes apparent from watching it that Google wants the ad...

This isn't exactly Android news, but it is still interesting and relevant to many of you. Internet Explorer (IE) is the most used web browser on the planet, but that isn't because it is popular. It's only because it comes pre-installed on any Windows based machine sold. Most savvy users will quickly switch to an... [Read More]

After watching these new ads, it almost makes you wonder if HTC wanted to hire Robert Downey Jr. just so they could pay to mock him. We can't believe RDJ would be willing to subject himself to this torturous poppycock. Here's a funny theory: RDJ was obviously still... [Read More]
