Goodbye, RadioShack. We'll always remember you as the overpriced home appliance store with that one weird shelf in the back full of electronics guts.

The TV boasts a “voice recognition” feature that allows viewers to control the screen with voice commands. But the service comes with a rather ominous warning: “Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party.”

I'm surprised they didn't call this article "In Soviet Russia TV watches YOU!"
The Brennan Center for Justice is a non-partisan public policy and law institute that focuses on the fundamental issues of democracy and justice.

Episode Talk (Spoilers)  - 
 
My crazy Missy theory.

She's the TARDIS. Driven completely insane by The Doctor's shenanigans, and all the paradoxes he'd subjected her to over the (thousands of) years.  Idris was her saying "hello", and Missy is her saying "¡Hola!".

I think the biggest one was when the Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) takes Rose back to see her dad, in father's day episode 163.
Didn't he take her back like 3 times to the same spot? That was a serious paradox problem.

Same with "shared responsibility".
 
Whenever I hear the "but" word, then I tend to think the speaker is attempting to justify an atrocious act rather than condemning it.

TL;DR: Apple care replaced this guy's bent iPhone within a day, no questions asked.

I love to bash Apple as much as the next fandroid, but I gotta give credit to their support.
 
#Bendgate. In the roughly six weeks that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been in customers' hands, there have been reports that the devices bend without any provocation from owners. (There has also...

I love the Google Voice integration into Hangouts!  All of a sudden my two old phones that don't have a SIM card in them became full-fledged free VoIP phones overnight.  I just hope Google keeps the free US/Canada calling indefinitely.

I thought the Brigadier was a drop in the expansion. I beat all the available levels and got all the drops, but he wasn't on any of them. On the very last level the Doctors said "It's you!" but no characters dropped.

He didn't used to as of yesterday.  There was a lot of hugging, but no drops.  I tried again today and there was a small patch.  After this the Brig and Rose appeared and I was able to get them :)

Very good food and ambiance.

They know how to take an order, just not how to deliver it. Strung us along for over 3 hours (not exaggerating, 7pm to 10pm) with "will be ready in 15 minutes" promises. When we called for the 8th time to complain, they turned nasty and canceled the order altogether. Apparently they didn't even get started on making the food. Granted it was a holiday evening, but that still doesn't give them the right to lie to their customers.

Pricey, but well worth it. The price of a ticket gets you two days of admission, so unless you live in the neighborhood, it makes sense to rent a hotel nearby and stay for both days in one visit. As other reviewers noted, the food is overpriced, but not in excess of other similar venues. "Breakfast with Elmo" is worth the extra charge for the kids to be able to mingle with different characters. Parades and photo-ops are a nice touch too that get kids very excited. If you visit on weekends, prepare for long lines to many rides. If you can - go during weekdays; otherwise - be there at the opening hour and hit the most popular rides first.

The new(er) tower has decent rooms, but the other building is basically falling apart. Food was excellent, with good quality and variety. The staff (aside from very few exceptions) is mostly apathetic and not very friendly. Other than a Foosball table, a ping-pong table, a pool table, one Xbox in the lobby, and a casino, there is no entertainment to speak of. Compared to daily shows we've seen in other resorts, this is a huge minus. Especially so since they are trying to sell themselves as a "family-friendly" destination. Do NOT come here for the beaches, because the 2012 hurricanes washed them all out. Quite literally, this resort no longer has a beach; instead there are just some rocks right by the entrance, which is now permanently closed off. The main pool is the only saving grace. We ended up taking the taxi to travel to the sister resort, Sonesta Great Bay, which has a good beach. It gets pricey though to do that every day. Overall, I would not recommend this resort.

Amazing food and atmosphere. Very kid-friendly. A bit of a wait during prime time, but well worth it. Prices are comparable with other Hibachi places.

Just wow! I thought an indoors water park would be a joke, but this place beat all my expectations. The park itself is huge, with different activities for all ages. My 6-year-old enjoyed it immensely, and so did my friend's 2-year-old and 10-year-old. I myself went on a few rides that rivaled those of larger parks like Dorney. Besides the park there are numerous other things for kids to do like miniature glow-in-the-dark golf, mini-bowling alley, an arcade room, etc. The buffet restaurant is alright, and there are plenty of other food places nearby. The rooms are spacious and well-kept; the staff is friendly and helpful. Overall, we had a perfect mid-winter getaway.
