Great article! Take a look down at the bottom of the article, the writer quotes me! Very interesting stuff, companies buying up gTLDs for what could be their own gain. 
Extra Space lays out its strategy for a new online “storage network” that will be linked by the .storage domain extension.

Please, please if you care about the internet, take 2 minutes and do this! 
 
Do you like the internet? Tell the FCC to protect it!

The FCC has proposed rules that would allow paid "fast lanes" on the internet. Many people (including me) not to mention hundreds of tech companies like Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft, Yahoo--plus tons of startups--worry that the FCC's proposed rules will break the internet in very bad ways.

So here's where the internet needs you. If you feel strongly that the the internet need protection from paid fast lanes, join me in telling the FCC to protect the internet. It's easy to do! Here's how: 

1. Go to http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/hotdocket/list and look for docket number 14-28 ("Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet") and click on 14-28.

2. Enter your name, address, and your comments. Hit the submit button and confirm your comment on the next page. That's it!

For example, I'll be writing that "the FCC should protect net neutrality by reclassifying broadband providers as common carriers under Title II."

But it literally takes under a minute to give your opinion to the FCC. Write whatever you feel, but if you like the internet and want it protected, you need to tell the FCC now. Right now, there's 21,549 comments on the FCC's proposed rules. I think there should be at least a hundred thousand comments from people on the web telling the FCC not to allow paid fast lanes on the net. Please tell the FCC what you think!

Hey +NIA Ops 

Portal Title 1: Alaqua Hole #2 Fountain
Location: Lake Mary, Florida, United States
Lat/Long Estimate: 28.742418,-81.393755
Portal Title 2: Alaqua Hole #1 Fountain
Location: Lake Mary, Florida, United States
Lat/Long Estimate: 28.741956,-81.396693
Appeal Cat: Invalid Portal
Reason: I could not submit these two portal because they cannot be safely accessed or even able to get close. Without the ability to to be near them, I could not report them via my scanner. The portals are in an Upper Class community that has a gate and at least 2 armed security guards on duty at all times. Local celebrities live in this neighborhood and they refuse to let anyone back, especially to play Ingress. There is no safe way to access this location as the golf course is private and neighborhood is locked down. You can view both portals at http://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=28.741918,-81.395084&z=18 and my attached photos show the gate.

The two portals seem to be water features tied into the Alaqua Country Club golf course.
Niantic normally allow portals to stand unless they are on private residential property (Military bases have portals and portal appeals for inaccessible have been rejected).
So technically the portals are accessible to a certain subset of the community (Sucky I know but this is how they've played it in the past).
Only thing I can add though is that the entire community seems to be gated private residential (Lack of streetview for the entire area, all of the streetview images stop short at about the same outer border, right by what looks like a security hut).
Also there were a few fountains further along that weren't submitted and potentially the country club itself so not sure if some ran out of time/battery when submitting or didn't bother to submit as they only wanted the two near them.
I'd love to be able to say Niantic would retire the two of them but I've a sneaking suspicion they'll be left there.

This is how you change a stupid headlight on a 2012 Mazda 6, yeah, I am so done with Mazdas. My 2007 Mazda 3 from +Cory Fairbanks Mazda has had the AC blower motor go out 4 times now, and requires the steering wheel, gas pedal, dashboard, glove box and even the seat to be removed just to change it out. $40 part with over $600 in labor, every year.

Yep my 2005 Mazda 6 is the same way. It's a PITA just to change a headlight!

Question for web development companies. How do you setup a way for clients to upload photos for their websites? We deal with a lot of clients that are not very technical. We have been using Dropbox, but even that gets confusing to many of our clients now. Is there a better system to use that is easier on the client's end?

Best would be to create a Ticket System where in clients can upload photos or documents, in that way it will be easier to keep track of work as well

Post your comments on net neutrality to the FCC comments. Don't let the ISPs charge content providers for fast lanes leaving startups and those without big pockets in the slow lanes. Takes 5 minutes, or less. Go post on proceeding 14-28 at http://www.fcc.gov/comments today. It is a boring topic, however, Jon Oliver put a good comedy spin on it while explaining the issue. Watch the video at Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO): Net Neutrality

Check out my latest article about how SEO does not always equal higher traffic. Sometimes brining in targeted traffic will increase conversions. 
Increasing traffic for your website is important, however, targeted traffic will increase conversion rates.

We stayed in the suite on the 12th floor. These are the smallest suites of any Residence Inn we have ever stayed in. Everything was VERY cramp. To close the door of the bathroom you would have to step into the shower just to close the door as there was not enough room. The ice maker did not work (we did not tell the staff until we left as we did not need ice). At night, it seems as if the floor above us, the 13th floor, was housekeeping. All night we heard what sounded like carts being rolled, things being dropped and nothing but noise. The staff was friendly and the price was pretty nice.

My Wife, kid and I had a blast here. The museum it self has a lot of really cool displays and PLENTY of hands on activities for the kids. You can even watch people working on building a boat while you are there. The ship and the submarine were amazing. We have toured more modern aircraft carries and battleships, so it was great to take a step back in time and see what was used at the turn of the 19th century! I recommend you do not miss this stop!

By far the best coffee I have had. They are a little bit slow when lots of people come in, but, the coffee is great. Parking can be rough when it is busy as they have only a few spots dedicated for use for them, all other spaces are dedicated to other businesses who will tow.

Great place for a picnic and watch the boats launch. There are no restrooms and only one small pavilion with two tables, but, great overlook of the river.

This is a must if you goto Philadelphia. So many places to grab a bite to eat & some sweets! Remember, it is only open from the morning till 6pm so if you plan to eat here for dinner, make sure you arrive before close. There is some seating inside to enjoy a meal while there or you can take it to go. If you are attending an event at the convention center, it is right across the street and much better then any food served at conventions.

Never had an issue at this Best Buy store. I visit this store maybe once per month and the staff is always helpful and the lines are short. I don't ask too may technical questions as I have normally done my research prior to visiting the store, so not sure how they are in that department.

This was a great Science center. We have been to many and this one featured the most exhibits and hands on activities we have ever seen. I will say the Robots Revolution is not even close to worth the price. It has very little hands on activities and the Google Self Driving Car which is advertised as something exciting is only a wood car cut out with a tv screen showing the same video you find on YouTube about the program. It was pretty lackluster. We did not see the Jurassic World so can't speak to it but all othe exhibits are great for kids and will keep them running around for hours. We spent 5 hours here and ran right up to closing.
