Android Wear 2.0 on Sony SW3

The Sony Smartwatch 3 is an amazing smartwatch with incredible potential. Despite its age, it is still comparable to new watches and is still quite remarkable; however, it is clear Sony doesn't believe so. Despite its release date of October 2014, the devices specifications are up to par with today's Smartwatch standards. It has a Snapdragon 400 equivalent processor, 512 Mb of RAM, and it has NFC capabilities, which can be used with one of Android Wear's newest capabilities: Android Pay. Devices such as the Asus Zenwatch 2 and the Moto 360 2nd Generation have identical specifications; yet, the Sony Smartwatch 3 seems to be the one left out of the game. In some cases, the SW3 outshines the others with its GPS, WiFi, NFC, and IP68 capabilities. Sony made an outstanding watch and I hate to see how companies give up on devices after two years. While other devices may get slow and sluggish, the SW3 is still snappy, responsive, and can last me almost 2 full days of battery life running Marshmallow 6.0.1 on Android Wear 1.5. A forum has been made on XDA Developers (here) where people have also been voicing their opinion and I highly suggest you take a look at that too. So, to Sony, please don't give up on the Smartwatch 3. It's an amazing device and even if a new iteration of the device is announced, this one is still outstanding and should be treated as such. Give the Smartwatch 3 Android Wear 2.0.

Give OneDrive users back their storage options

Dear Microsoft OneDrive team, The newest changes to the storage plans have bought much concern to the OneDrive and Windows community. Discontinuing the unlimited storage option on grounds of abuse is fair enough, but why go to the extent of punishing all your customers? Since not all users upload such massive quantities of files to the service, Microsoft should set a reasonable limit on storage (perhaps 2 TB so users have a enough storage and Microsoft can stay ahead of the competition). Furthermore, we think that users have the right to continue to expecting versatile, competitively priced options from Microsoft. OneDrive users who need 100GB of storage should have that option instead of being forced to move to another service or cope with insufficient space. Finally, the 15GB camera bonus for free users needs to stay, at the very least for those already possessing it. These users have a storage space cap by default, which prevents then from falling into the "abuse" category. With storage being as cheap as it is today and other services like Windows 10 relying heavily on OneDrive, there is really no reason for Microsoft to reduce the storage amount on plans outside those with unlimited storage. We hope OneDrive will retain its 100GB plan, 200GB plan, 15GB bonus, and consider a 2 TB limit for its Office subscribers so that Microsoft will continue bringing its great features that competitors lack in the "Mobile first, Cloud first" world. Sincerely, The OneDrive and Windows Communities

Petition to Satya Nadella, Microsoft

Punish the abusers not all of your users.

To whom it may concern I as many others have purchased an office 365 subscription as well as multiple devices with OneDrive promotional storage. For me I already own office and there was no real need to purchase office 365 for office, rather I purchased it for the Onedrive storage. At the Microsoft Store and multiple places promoted “Unlimited” storage. I am lucky that I have not stored more than the 1TB labeled. However I expected not to worry about it since it was Unlimited. You have recently stated that you will be changing all Onedrive accounts to meet new quotas. Quotas that are really low. I would understand if this was for all new users, and maybe if you made a more expensive “unlimited” or 50TB option. However this change is going to affect me and all of your users that have bought into your ecosystem. Windows Phones, Windows tablets, Surface, and all windows 8 and 10 users. Please reconsider and have those users that did not abuse storage keep their current “unlimited” status. Let all free users keeps the data that you promised them. Then set policies that are clear so that we can follow them. Your comments about users that uploaded movie collections are incorrect. I would not consider them abusing your plan as you called it “Unlimited”. The only ones that have abused anything is Microsoft; the trust of their users. I hope you reconsider, not only is this bad for users like me. It is bad for the Onedrive brand, office 365 as a whole, and Microsoft as a serious company. You might as well discontinue Onedrive since others and I would not trust it.
