This Week in the Life of DROID: 2/28/14

droid life

Galaxy S5 unveiling week has officially come to a close. Yes, we were there. Yes, we got our hands all over it. And yes, there is more video and Galaxy S5 news below than one can possibly consume. You should try to, though, as this is once again going to be the device to beat throughout the rest of the year.

After you are done there, be sure to check out the DL Show episode 51 if you missed it live. We talked about…the Galaxy S5. And then, be sure to catch up on the rest of the Android news from the past week. Project Ara was everywhere, Motorola confirmed a new Moto X for this summer (plus a smartwatch), the HTC One kept showing up, we put out our top apps and games of the month, and warned you about a sneak Verizon-related phishing scam going on.

It’s all below, don’t miss any of it. 

If you had a Galaxy S5, you could test your heart rate after getting hyped on all of that/

      Just barfed in my mouth a little bit.

      Maybe you should see the amount of education he has before opening your mouth. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us.

        Great point! He was accepted into the University of Iowa and planned to study biochemical engineering. I guess engineering is engineering, no matter what field it falls under, even if you drop out before finishing all of your basic studies courses and never actually start the degree. Other than that, Mr. Kutcher has no other higher education. I wonder why you think he would be a better candidate for this job instead of the actual engineers Motorola employs currently.

        • The Narrator

          Considering most companies were created by people who dropped out of college, does it even matter? Nope.

          Steve Jobs, Gabe Newell, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg all dropped out.

            I’m not sure if “most companies” are started by college dropouts, it would be interesting to see a statistic there, but I’d go ahead and say that it’s probably not true. Also, I was only commenting on the part of your post that made it seem like Ashton Kutcher has received a considerable “amount of education and experience” in the mobile tech industry. Now, you could have just meant that he’s had education and experience in general, which is true (who hasn’t) but definitely not in this specific industry. Bringing up four random names of successful college dropouts who started their own companies is beside the point. The majority of these types were just in the right place at the right time and if it wasn’t them, it would have been someone else, college graduate or not. Further more, they all had significant trouble getting off the ground and almost failed many times because of their lack of experience and education, with the exception of Gabe Newell, who was able to gain experience by working at Microsoft for a number of years before he started Valve. They also surround themselves with people who do have experience and education. If Steve Jobs didn’t have Steve Wozniak (no formal college education, but well-versed in computer engineering), the story of Apple may have turned out much different. Ashton Kutcher is no Steve Wozniak, but those are the minds you should be looking for to fill positions, especially in an already established company. Who knows, Kutcher may do a fine job there, but I’d have to agree that it’s nothing to look forward to and he’s an odd pick if it’s not just a marketing stunt. He has nothing to lose though, if this doesn’t work out, at the end of the day he still gets to go home and bang Mila Kunis.

            TLDR

            It’s not a marketing stunt.

        Really? Kelso from That 70’s Show and you “can’t wait to see what he has in store for us”? Really? Lenovo is going to get Punk’d. :)

    • Chris

      You think you can do any better?

    • Aaron

      I think Carlos Estevez would have been a better pick. At least then Motorola would be “Winning”. Instead they are just going to get Punk’d by Kelso.

      Everyone hates your uncle around here

    Haters are coming. Regardless though the S5 is going to be tough to beat this year.

      I’m excited to see what LG comes up with. In terms of design I think it could blow the S5 out of the water (waterproof pun, anyone?). I just hope their skin doesn’t get any uglier.

      • Aaron

        The waterproof part is actually kind of a big deal for me. If LG doesn’t have that feature I think I am sold on the S5. I do think LG’s skin looks better than TouchWiz, though. And I thought the G2 looked a lot better than the S4.
