So....I've owned a Chromebox for some time, but just went out and bought the HP 14 Touchscreen the other day so I can take Chrome on the road with me.  I'm really happy with it so far, but then I tried playing music through the speakers for the first time today and these have GOT to be the worst internal speakers I've ever heard on any device of any kind in my entire life.  I suppose I can live with it, but damn.

So, I got the 5.1 update on my Nexus 5 and now my phone only syncs 2/3 of my contacts with my truck (2015 Tundra) over Bluetooth.  I only noticed because the truck has a "Favorite Contacts" option, and I noticed that my entry for home no longer says "Home" and just shows the actual phone number instead.  When I tried to fix it, I noticed that the contract entry (along with a bunch of others) is no longer in the address book on the truck, while they are still on the phone.  When I run the sync, it gets up to 222 of 375 contacts and then stops there and says it's finished every time.

I tried re-syncing contacts, rebooting the phone, rebooting the truck.  Nothing.

My youngest child came home from college at Christmas time wanting to learn how to drive stick.  There's still home for the new generation.  :-)

Way cool.
 
Every minute after you clock out of the office counts. Next time you run errands after work, push directions from your computer to your Android phone and have them ready in hand as you head out the door.

+Tesla Motors  Seriously lame.  So you add some software that tells me how far I can get from the nearest charger?  That is not the range anxiety problem.

If I'm driving my car on a trip, I'm not even thinking about the next gas station until I get down to about a quarter of a tank.  And at a quarter of a tank, I can find a gas station along the route I want to take without any anxiety.  And when I get to said station, I can have full range again in less than 5 minutes.

That is the problem you need to solve to get me to spend $80k on your car, +Elon Musk.  Bold Tweets and software tweaks aren't going to cut it.

And saying you can't possibly run out of juice without trying?  People run out of gas with a fuel light blazing on the dash all the time.  

Despite being a neanderthal, I'm warming up to the idea of buying a Tesla.  Please don't set me back by resorting to typical business tactics.  I was expecting something really trick.  This ain't it.

If you have $50 in your wallet, but you don't ever actually spend cash, it might as well be toilet paper. #deepthoughts
