Oh, that's where the Droid Turbo's SIM card is

19

Manufacturers are always looking for clever ways to integrate necessary smartphone parts into their designs, putting buttons, ports and slots all over the place. Motorola has a trick up its sleeve with the Droid Turbo's SIM card slot, hiding it beneath the volume rocker on the side. The trick is carried over from the design on last year's Droid Ultra and Maxx, but it's just as impressive (and hidden) this time around.

It's Halloween tonight — let's put down the phones and concentrate on driving

38
Google Doodle Halloween 2014

A quick reminder, folks, that it's Halloween tonight. The kids are going to be out and about, wearing all sort of stuff that they can't see out of or walk well in, and worrying more about how much candy they get than whether they're wandering into the street. And so it's more important than ever for those of us in cars to put down the phones and keep our eyes out the road.

Repeat: Please. Put. Down. Your. Phone.

I thank you. My kids thank you. And their friends thank you.
