Holiday Shopping Tips from BaldyPal

http://emergingtech.tbr.edu
You might be finding yourself doing some last minute Christmas shopping and don’t know exactly what to get that special someone in your family. If they happen to be someone you don’t mind spending some dough on, I’ve made a list of some “Shopping Tips” for phones and tablets. I personally don’t think a lot of people buy a new phone for people as a gift (unless it were a very close loved one, such as a spouse or child) but to buy a tablet for a loved one is much more likely. These tips are geared much closer to tablets than phones, but most of it is great advice for both.

The New Moto X from Motorola: Full Review


Last year, in 2013, Motorola attempted to break the mold by producing a smartphone that focused more on a better user experience and not as much on the top of the line hardware specification. It was then rated by many bloggers across the internet as the best smartphone of the year (then 2013). I personally, purchased that device to be my phone of choice. I have not looked back, not once. Even after reviewing many new devices this year. I went on to purchase the original Moto X for my wife, and I also persuaded my mom and cousin to purchase one as well. Everyone found it to be the "perfect" smartphone for their needs.

Now, in 2014, Motorola has set out to do it all over again. They learned from a few mistakes. They tweaked some hardware, and a lot of the software; all for the betterment of the New Moto X. It'll also be referred to as the Moto X 2nd Gen across the internet. They kept the infamous motomaker.com website and added more options to customize the phone. They made the phone a little wider and a little taller. But still managed to pack a larger screen in a footprint smaller than the competition. Thanks to my friend's at Verizon Wireless, after spending two weeks with Motorola's 2nd Gen Moto X, I bring to you my full review where I discuss hardware, software, purchase options and more, in hopes to give you all the ammunition you need to determine if this phone will be the right choice for you.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4: The Unboxing


This year Samsung announced two new "phablet" products, the Note Edge and the Note 4. Today I get to unbox for you the latter of the two. Let's take a look at what Samsung has packed inside this cardboard and run down the spec list at the same time. It's sure to please with all the wonderful goodies. But I'll reserve those opinions for the full review in a few weeks from now.

Unboxing of the Google Nexus 6 by Motorola

Google started the Nexus line of devices in January 2010 with the announcement of the HTC Nexus One. These device were said to be pure Android devices that were meant to allow developers to get their hands on the cleanest versions of Android, first. It's continued through the years was the Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and now the Nexus 6. Each one getting a slightly larger display and better build quality. Today, my Nexus tooth is satisfied as I finally get my hands on the newest Nexus 6. The largest thus far in the family with a 5.96 inch screen (diagonal). Stay tuned past the break as I unbox this bad boy and show off everything it's made of.
