HTC teams up with Valve software to bring us something we weren't expecting from the company... a VR headset called the HTC Vive. They have apparently been developing it in secret for sometime because they claim they will deliver a consumer version before the end of the year.

The only real details that were revealed besides the typical marketing hyperbole was the following:

We are intrigued here at HQ and will keep you guys informed as more is revealed.

[Editor's Note: Updated with a few more details.]

Although HTC wasn't able to keep the HTC One M9 under wraps before the big reveal, we were surprised by the release of the new HTC Grip. It's a fitness band with several features and a very sporty look.

They didn't share much of the details for the device, but it was developed in partnership with Under Armour, and should be available this spring for $199.

It turns out all of the leaks were dead on with the gorgeous design of the HTC One M9. Despite already knowing what the device looked like, it is still a beautiful and breathtaking design. HTC hasn't strayed too far from their original design, but that's not a bad thing. In fact, it looks like they have simply tweaked and refined what is easily one of the most iconic looking smartphones ever created.

Here are the full specs as revealed during the event:
  • 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset
  • 5-inch Super LCD3 1080p display
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal storage with microSD
  • 20 megapixel rear camera
  • 4 megapixel (UltraPixel) front camera
  • GPS, WiFi AC, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, 4G LTE
  • 5.68 x 2.73 x 0.38 inches, 4.96 ounces
  • Dolby Audio with Dual Front Stereo Speakers
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC Sense
HTC claims it makes a statement, "You demand the very best!" They may just have that again..

Along this journey it is easy to keep on trucking but it is equally important to stop at a point and do a self evaluation of your journey. Everything from what you did right, where you want to improve, what have you learned, to even how you responded to adversity. Honest self evaluations will help you get a feel where you are at in this journey whether you need to make minor adjustments or just keep trucking along.

So here are a few evaluation questions and tests you can give yourself (and if any of you have any more good question post below and we can add them to the op).

  • List all the positive things you have done whether it be cutting your soda intake in half, eating less fast food, preparing more meals, or working out more. It is easy to get lost in the journey when at times you do not feel like you made any progress. Listing the positive things will help encourage you to continue on doing and improving on your positives.
  • Areas you would like to improve whether it be go to the gym more, eat less processed foods, drink more water, etc. We always want to strive to improve as continual improvements, even the minute ones, will help you get better.
  • Where are you at concerning your short term goals? If you listed a few short term goals take this time to see which goals you met and which ones you didn't and of the ones you failed to meet ask yourself why you failed to meet your goal. Just because you failed to meet some short term goals...

NVIDIA just rolled out a quick hotfix update for their Shield Tablet. Apparently there was a color reproduction issue with the display that was introduced by last week's 2.2 update. This hotfix is 2.2.1.

Here's the official changelog from NVIDIA:
  • Display color-space correction
  • Improvements to Netflix experience
Hmmm... color reproduction issue? Is that anything like that silly gold & white/blue & black dress optical illusion which is running rampant across the web?

This could be some exciting news. Supposedly, Motorola is bringing the Moto 360 to Moto Maker in March. Admittedly, the idea of a customizable smartwatch seems just as good as a customizable smartphone. We are surprised Motorola didn't think of this/roll it out sooner.

Sadly, the initial customization options won't be too far removed from the usual stuff you can do already. At first it will be limited to the phone's silver, black, or gold for the watch face, and whichever watch-bands Motorola makes available. You will also get to choose from 11 watch faces which will be pre-setup to boot up when you first get your device. This will simply be the default though, and you will be able to customize that to your hearts content later.

Of course, it's possible that Motorola plans to offer more customization options in the future, and we are especially excited to check out the next-generation Moto 360.
