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.

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.

Google Now is apparently detecting walking and biking now!

Thinking about it more, their determination is quite inaccurate...I biked at least 200-250 miles in October...but I'm still glad they are working on this.

Good post on how slowing to safely pass a cyclist is not going to ruin your life.
If you keep driving like that, you’re going to kill a cyclist. When you do, it’s going to suck as much for you as it does for them. When you drive by my head at 50 mph I can’t have this conversation...

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

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.

Never thought I'd say this, but I just purchased Windows 8.  Not for my main machine, of course -- I just figured $40 isn't bad to upgrade my virtual machine that is still running XP.  And it gives me the right to downgrade to Windows 7 as well.

Interesting. My XP VM is 32-bit...they are making me jump through hoops to get a 64-bit installation of 8. Starting to regret the "upgrade".

Great food and atmosphere. The chicken in my noodle soup dish was very good quality - rare for Vietnamese restaurants. They were also great about making sure there were no allergens in my food.

A "Creamery" that doesn't make their own ice cream? Misleading! The ice cream they truck in from Santa Cruz is not good.
