Today, I started my Nexus 7 to find that it had once again downloaded and applied a new update - they come more frequently on Android 5.0 than on Windows Vista - and that after the update was applied and the system rebooted, things still ran as poorly as before.

So, I find it amazing that a serious African American contender for Presidential candidate among the GOP is so determined to destroy his chances for the Presidency so quickly.

It doesn't make sense watching this guy have a complete, "I have no idea how to handle myself politically and diplomatically," breakdown so early in the race.

The Republicans can't want this. The GOP must be as shocked as anyone else that this guy is proving to be such a complete moron so rapidly. I'd like to say the Left must have planted this guy - but hell, they're more savvy than to do that and then have someone blow it so completely so quickly. That would be an epic waste of effort and resources.

Either someone has dirt on this guy and they're making him self destruct, or he has advanced stage untreated syphilis or some other psychosis inducing disease. I can't come up with anything else.

"Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight and when they come out they're gay," said Carson.

Carson is tapping into the homophobia of the black church though. Some ordinarily liberal black people are quite opposed to homosexuality and I've heard several anti-gay sermons from black ministers.

Oops: Google realizes the ObamaNet will be a disaster
Dan Calabrese | March 2, 2015 | Herman Cain
By the way, the FCC's Internet power grab is a bigger deal than executive amnesty.

If it seems insane that Google at one point lobbied hard for so-called "net neutrality," you have to realize that the biggest and most influential players always figure they can benefit when a market becomes more political. That's because they figure they're in a better position to manipulate the market to their benefit.

So imagine Eric Schmidt's horror when he realized that last week's power grab from the FCC was no ordinary bit of regulatory meddling in an otherwise free market. The heavy-handed move of three FCC commissioners to put the Internet under the same federal regulatory structure as decades-old telephone companies will have an absolutely devastating effect not only on the free use of the web, but on innovation and the free working of markets.

And no, Google, you won't be able to use your influence to make sure it works in your favor. Because these people answer to no one and don't even care if what they do makes any sense. Way to create a monster:

I'll give +Matthew Greenbaum this, he rarely has ever considered himself right. He's almost always arguing against assertions being made that someone else thinks they've got something all figured out.

But you won't be able to use it on many Android devices - because Google swears SD is a security risk that causes 200% device slowdowns. :)

And then there is the fact that this watch and 2in1 tablet hybrid with 500gb hard drive in the dock were less than $500 for both of them. ASUS consistently delivers the best values in tech, Windows or Android.

I had a Q200E that I gave to my daughter... I3... but not the latest core... what was before? Sandy Bridge? And this generation is Haswell?

I've got the latest gen in my Yoga 13. She is one behind, both I3s.

This is an Atom, though, the T100 above.

But I've done the same thing any number of times. Bought a device and forgotten about a key feature that is "kinda" a deal-breaker.

If it is something like Bluetooth, you pick up one of those $10 dongles. It isn't ideal, but better than nuthin'.

Truth is subjective on too many matters. This is a horrible idea. This is an Orwellian idea.
 
Well this could be interesting! Google will now be known as Troll Slayer The Internet, we know all too well, is a cesspool of rumor and chicanery.

But in a research paper published by Google in February — and reported over the weekend by New Scientist — that could, at least hypothetically, change. A team of computer scientists at Google has proposed a way to rank search results not by how popular Web pages are, but by their factual accuracy.

April 5th, 2017. A Special Word from Mrs. President Hillary Clinton: 

For too long now we have stood by and watched the Internet be a lawless frontier where Cyber-bullies, extremists, and other merchants of hate and intolerance can practice their backwards philosophies with impunity. I am proud to announce that in concert with the FCC and building on the achievements of the preceding administration, today the US Federal Government is taking a strong stand to ensure that hate-crime on the Internet becomes a thing of the past. With the passage of the new FCC Online Communications Decency Act, we now have powerful new federal tools to reign in racist, misogynistic, homophobic, extremist and other violent and disruptive behavior on the Internet. It does not matter where these backwards and small minded people hide, online. IRC Chat, personal blog pages, or social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and G+ - this law will empower our federal and local law enforcement agencies to root them out, expose them to the light of day, and punish them to the fullest extent of the law for their crimes! This will send a strong message to those who wish to abuse this medium to spread messages of hate and intolerance. We will not stand by and watch as "Internet Trolls" ruin lives any longer. We are now able to fight back, and we will!

What a lie.  Internet threats and interactions are being watched by the NSA and are and were being watched long before then by the services that hosted the chats with frequent calls to law enforcement when threats and suspected trafficking of any kind occurred.  This has nothing to do with Internet security and all to do with the government picking winners and losers on it instead.

Thought  this was kind of cool. Gravity Falls, on Disney Channel. I feel like there are a lot of people involved in media who quietly acknowledge that they think Von Daniken is on to something.

Watching this video made the years melt away. Made my heart hurt a bit. Made me miss your sister. I still remember that day in front of Sam Brannan vividly. She was adorable that day.

The default watch face background for this face was lame, but the ability to customize it with any image you want is awesome.
