At first I could not understand the buzz surrounding the new Moto X phone by Motorola and Google (This being their first phone since Google bought Motorola). With the screen size being only 4.7″ (same as my Nexus 4) embedded with a 720p display, the Moto X does not surprise with its display qualities. Pair that along with mid-range internals and some snappy color options you are left with a phone that isn’t really the leader of any category.
After watching some review videos and studying their [Google’s] marketing plan I have figured out that this phone doesn’t appeal to me, or my other tech geek friends, simply because it isn’t made to appeal to us. This phone is meant to appeal to the masses, and in that respect I think Google and Motorola have hit the nail on the head.
PS- I have included some Moto X review videos that I have gotten a lot from. (One from MKBHD and the other from Chris Pirillo)
Android 4.3 was released last week and I finally got the update on my Nexus 7 and Nexus 4. Now that I have the update I am wondering what exactly do I get with it? Luckily one of my favorite tech vloggers, MKBHD, has the answers I have been looking for!
Starting today, and all the Fridays to follow, I will be putting up twitter accounts that I enjoy, and that you should follow. I’ll try and spread it around to all types of accounts, for all types of people. Enjoy!

Retweet if you hate it when you’re trying to be serious, but then you accidentally smile because you’re thinking about how Mufasa is dead.

At the end of the day, all I really want is a Google Edition Galaxy Note 3. I can dream, right? — Marques Brownlee (@MKBHD) July 15, 2013
