In general I'm not a huge fan of Apple due to their restrictions, but shopping at their retail stores is painless...I can't say that for any other store.

I've deleted the Amazon app store from my phone.

I did this because apps from their store won't work unless you are signed in to the Amazon app store. Worse, their app store app refuses to save your password and constantly requires it to be entered.

I'm not going to put up with all that for the two or three free apps of the day I use...I'd rather pay for them on the Google Play store. Their free apps of the day are junk lately anyhow.

Welcome to Windows 8: "The server Windows.Store did not register with DCOM within the required timeout." when trying to install Google search.

The Windows Store still doesn't work, though.  It flashes up and then disappears.

Good post on how slowing to safely pass a cyclist is not going to ruin your life.

Either Microsoft Project 2013 is still an MDI application or I just installed Project 1993 by mistake.

Oh I did not know it was OK to do that according to the google play term of services. I actually do not like this apple like restrictions... but that's just hippy me. :P

there are so many parents who seem to see their role as taxi drivers of their children.
To give rides of less the 5 miles for 12 year old boys to practice on a football team. Where do these kids nowadays want to get physical stamina? From jumping in front of a Kinect camera?

Combine Dish's spectrum with free unlicenced White Spaces 700Mhz spectrum, and Google can easily build a national/international free wireless data network, with free unlimited VOIP Google Voice service and SMS as IM, also free. Next year, you'll be able to buy that $199/$99 unlocked no-contract Nexus super phone that I was talking about (rumoring/expecting) nearly 3 years ago that I thought Google would already do with Nexus One http://www.androidguys.com/2009/12/14/reuters-nexus-one-available-directly-through-google-website-january-5/ and we're still waiting for the sub-$250 Nexus phone with free unlimited cell data VOIP calls as I wrote 2 years ago: http://armdevices.net/2010/08/01/why-are-we-still-waiting-for-the-sub-250-android-super-phones/

Google could have done it in 2009. But their strategy to work with carriers was probably the correct one, to make Android dominate over 75% of the worldwide smartphone market, with the help of the carriers. And now, it's time for Google to push for the inevitable, total disruption/revolution of the smartphone wireless connectivity world. Using new spectrums, building out White Spaces Femtocell home base stations deployments.

I had the fried chicken and waffles. It looked beautiful, but it was dry and tasteless. I had to ask for extra maple syrup to make it edible. 8 hours later and my stomach is still feeling unhappy.

Amazing chocolate pudding pie. Great fried chicken. One star off for the gross mac and cheese.

I was previously disappointed with their chocolate cupcake, however this time I tried their chocolate chocolate ice cream sandwich and it was excellent.

I have always been a huge fan of this place. Tonight I have to deduct 2 stars because management closed the upper section of seating...on a Saturday night at 7:30pm. That meant we were all crowded standing around people's tables waiting like vultures for a place to sit. I asked for the manager and asked for it to be opened...but he never came to speak with me. I don't want to pay $35 for sundaes only to be told I cannot sit when there are plenty of tables upstairs that could be used.

After waiting an hour and a half for a table, it was annoying to be told that ordering the fried chicken was going to be 45 minutes longer. The chicken and waffles was absolutely NOT worth the wait. The waffles were cold and gritty. One piece of chicken was still bleeding and the other barely had any meat on it. In summary, I wouldn't go back even if there was no wait.
