Android One in the U.S. givesAndroid One phones in the U.S. are an opportunity for everyone to have a Good Phone™. Step into the Wayback Machine with me for a minute, as we head back to the Autumn of 2013. Amidst all the hype... and furious pace of Android phone releases, one phone was unexpectedly great: the original Moto G. The 2013 Moto G only had to do one thing: not suck. It succeeded. The first generation Moto G was, at around $150, fairly inexpensive. It didn't have the fastest and bestest processor or ungodly amounts of memory (it actually had 1GB of RAM, if you can believe it).

The thing that made the OG Moto G special is that it did not suck. Prior to 2013, you weren't...

We always preface this with saying that off-camera flash is about thinking creatively with your subjects and your photos. You add an element and tend to do a lot more than just capturing a moment. Instead, it's about creating something that isn't there.

Two questions: Will Verizon get its $21 million worth? And how many players will defy Donald Trump? The Baltimore Ravens kick off against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on Sunday at 9:30 am... eastern time. Normally a Ravens-Jaguars game wouldn't be worth writing about, but the NFL and Verizon are hoping things will be different this time: Verizon is paying the NFL $21 million to stream the game worldwide. That means it will be very, very easy to watch the game, for free, as long as you have a decent internet connection: Viewers around the world can watch via the NFL's own site, as well as many properties Verizon now owns, including: Yahoo Sports, go90, Yahoo, AOL, HuffPost, Tumblr, NFL Mobile, Complex, and RatedRed. If you are a regular human being, you may be very interested to see how...
