When I was a kid I always liked motorcycles, loved them, mostly the sports ones, had my whole room in my parents home full of posters and pictures. But it wasn't until I got my first car that I started to love them. My first car was a Golf MKII very good car. Fast, reliable, but it was kinda old. We had to get rid of it and I got another car, that's when I started to work on my car, started to modify it, install and fix stuff by myself, etc. Then I left that one to my brother and I got my Cabrio. This is a post about that project and his long journey
From my contribution in my company's blog
Recently, while working on a mobile project, I found myself spending a lot of time connecting a device, uninstalling the previous version of the Application Under Test (AUT), installing the new one, and then disconnecting the device, just to do it again on another 6 or 7 devices (I would like to talk about why it is better to test on actual devices than in a simulator, but that topic deserves its own blog post).
Some nights ago, late, my wife and I were watching TV. While I was constantly changing channels, as I always do, I stopped in an infomercial "Paint Zoom". After 5 min watching all the stuff it can do, I turn to my wife and say "Dear, I want that" smiling she says "You always want everything, you are a marketing victim". I had to agree, I really am a victim of marketing. Since I remember I always wanted a lot of stuff, the garden hose that is like the firefighters, the "Mercury Clean" spray, and lots of other stuff.
That aside, from sometime to now, I acquired a zest for electronics and I have become an "Early adopter" mostly for Google Devices. During the last 2 years I've been one of the firsts on buying a Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 on their launch date, and I was preparing for the Nexus 6 but, not anymore, little bit expensive and the Nexus 5 is still hanging on. But, this time, I got the most new device from Motorola, the Moto 360. Bought it during the launch date and I was one of the lucky ones to get it then. These are my impressions:

Recently, Firefox 29 was rolled out with a new redesign and, while downloading and installing it, I realized all the history Firefox and I have together. I believe the first version I installed was 2.7; since then we've been BFFs.
I've seen some browsers rise, grow, and die, like Flock (based on Firefox) and Rockmelt (based on Chrome). I have also seen others that always have been there, like Opera and Internet Explorer, but they have never been good enough.
