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

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. 

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.

My Samsung 226BW monitor started having a strobe-light effect.  I thought the backlight was broken, however after a Google search I found out that this model is prone to capacitor failures.  $4 of capacitors later and $5 of shipping and my monitor is working properly again.
