So NASA got tired of all that Conspiracy Stuff, and posted over 10,000 photos from the Apollo moon mission.

It's amazing what we can do today with special effects and computer imagery. 😀

I was looking into getting my license after the whole ban movement started, then I decided against it because they wanted way too much information from me. I find it hard to believe that I have to have to publicly display my address, name, and information just to fly a multirotor that I paid hundreds of dollars for.

The Verge: Everything coming to Netflix and Amazon Prime in February (and what to watch before it’s gone) http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwjYq1kyk
Look, I get it. It’s super fun to get all mad when a movie you like leaves Netflix. "That’s not fair," you say, slamming your fists against the table. "I don’t care that they’re not supposed to...

Cutting the Cord - Ditching Cable / Satellite

We've been 'cord cutters' for almost five years .. No cable TV, no satellite, just internet .. Netflix, Hulu, Sling TV and Amazon Video (part of Prime, 'love' the free shipping), bring in more than we could ever hope to watch. .. $50/month combined. 😀

All of this content isn't available via cable or satellite, and if it was, it would be hundreds a month.

We originally cut the cord for cost, but quickly found we loved the 'consume what we individually wanted, when we wanted, where we wanted' to be an extremely strong lure.

Netflix for classic TV/movies ($12/month for 4k video). Hulu for current TV ($15/month including, in our case, the Showtime add-on), Sling TV $20/month, for a plethora of live cable channels and sports. Oh, and Amazon (which works out, on a yearly subscription were grandfathered into, having been Prime subscribers since the beginning, of about $8/month for even more movies and TV, including HBOs back catalog of shows and movies going back nearly a decade), and were pretty well covered.

Our only splurge in this deal is our 'much faster than we need' internet WiFi connection of 100mps for $75/month .. But we'll take it. 😊

Online only. It's the way to go. 😃

Definitely taking up this one.
Google's Chromecast media streaming dongle has always been cheap, but if $35 is too rich for your blood, you'll want to pay attention to a new Android Pay promotion in the US. If you make ten...

Android Central: Reminder: Songza is shutting down on Jan. 31, but it lives on in Google Play Music. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIw_dukkyk
Things may look a little different, but they still sound the same as Songza shuts down but lives on in Google Play Music.

"Find a drunk Adele and get free tickets" sounds like the best game.
Imagine how great it would be to get to sing with Adele while the two of you drive around in your car. Then imagine what it would be like for her to start rapping. Yeah, well James Corden actually got to do that and it's as awesome as you'd think. In his latest edition of Carpool Karaoke, the host of The Late Late Show returned home to England and went for a drive with Adele (hence being on the other side of the car and road), and it's all kinds ...

Introduction
Currently an exceptionally talented Virtual Executive Assistant (20 years support experience, 14 years supporting C-Level executives desk-side/in-office and virtually).

Resume on request.

Can be found all over the web by searching for "jim12957". ... (I've been online using that 'i.d.' since 1986, so there's a lot). :)

One day at a time. Live life for all it's worth (you only get one). Plan what you can, take the rest on faith. Learn. Play. Love. Live.

I, my wife and our oldest son are currently using Samsung Note 2's (Stock, 4.4), I and my wife are using Nexus 7's (2012, Stock, 4.4) and there's a Chromecast plugged into the flat screen by which we watch the world and entertain ourselves.

We're cord cutters (haven't paid for TV in over 2 years). Thanks to laptops with HDMI ports, and memberships with Netflix, Hulu Plus, Google Play, Amazon Prime, VUDU, Aereo and select others, we have all the on-demand and live material we could ever possibly consume, all for a recurring monthly cost of $40.00 U.S.

Excellent day park. Plenty of coasters to keep family entertained. Reasonable prices. Highly recommend wrist bands to avoid peak season lines. Take advantage of one price drink refills. Great water park.

Good company owned store (much superior to franchise locations). Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Slow during busy periods. Good phone selection. No contact service and jump program are beyond reproach. Customer for 10 years.

Bit disorganized and some departments to small. Merchandise seems crammed in everywhere. Do like the digital price signs. Staff hard to find. Slow checkout.
