I tried Sling and did not like it, but this is something I would pay for!
Apple TV will get the standalone streaming service when it launches in April.

I was a Kickstarter backer on the original Pebble watch. Recently, I updated the software and started wearing it to compare against my other Google Wear watches. So far I have not gone back! The simplicity, longer battery life, and more passive feeling alerts appeal to me in a way that Google Wear just did not.

The Pebble Time has a new OS and a cleaned up look, with a color e-ink screen and the same battery life. What's not to like? Sign me up!

I really would prefer that Google had not capitulated with this extension policy.

Lately, Microsoft and Apple have the been the loudest objectors; however both have track records that prove that without public disclosure they will frequently refuse to act on bugs, security and otherwise.

Timed disclosure policies treat all vendors equally and ensure that customers have transparency into the risks they face, even when that disclosure is not in the interest of the vendor.

This place has great sweet and sour chicken. I have been going here for over eight years and the food and service has always been consistently wonderful!

The food and the service were horrible. Additionally the owner and the landlord appear to be running a predatory parking scam out of the restaurant which results in a sleazy thuggish vibe. I will not be going back!
