For the last few weeks when I launch the browser I get 25 to 30 blank tabs that open. I did a power wash and it corrected the problem for a few days. Now it's back again. I checked settings and don't see anything different. I changed settings to open a blank tab instead of the selected tabs I had opening and no change. Anyone have any ideas?

Received my LG G Pad today. I also am coming from Nexus 7. It's much faster and smoother than the N7. Need more time with it but it's got my attention.
My only problem so far is a defective charging cable. Called tech support in hopes of getting a replacement cable. Tech supports solution was to return the entire tablet for exchange. Yeah, like I'm going to be without my tablet for the Holidays. Pretty stupid suggestion if you ask me. Shame on you Google!
Just got back from purchasing new charging cable. Again, Shame on you Google. 

What happened to my Timescape 4K demo that came with my Pixel. I went to view it today and it has disappeared. Is there a way to search for it? When I view the one on YouTube doesn't compare.

I have a great faith and trust in Google. I know they monitor everything that I say or do on my Pixel. I'm comfortable with that. My understanding is that they will use that info to personalize my experience and contribute data that will in the end make everyone's online experience better. I can live with the ads and even use them from time to time.

That brings me to the problem. 

I think Facebook has been reading my emails and monitoring my Google searches. I noticed that the ads that are appearing on my news feed are things I've searched for on Amazon or Googled. Nothing that I ever mentioned on Facebook. So how is Facebook getting this information? If you can't install programs (spyware) on a chromebook, how is Facebook able to know what I search for? I can't believe that Google would willingly share that info. Can cookies harvest info? I also use a Nexus 4 as well as a Nexus7 (No Windows here).
Sure hope someone out there can clear the air.

Is there a way to auto hide the task bar on the Pixel? 

Ordered my Pixel back in July (I'm in Brazil) and just got it physically in my hands last night. WOW! Even better than everyone has mentioned. I'm sitting here watching Survivor on CBS.com via my VPN through one of my Chromecasts (that also arrived last night). Performance of both devices is much better than I imagined or have been able to get by the various means I have used up to now. Picture quality on Pixel is HD+, on big screen is almost 1080p but definitely better than 720p. I was really starting to feel digitally deprived. Now life could not be better. 

Someone help me out here!        I know that I'm not crazy.
My stepdaughter won't be here with my two Chromecast dongles
until the middle of Sept.
Tonight I was using my Nexus 4 as my normal YouTube viewer (Nexus 7) was on the charger. I happened to notice that when I was searching for a video the "Cast" icon was on the header. I thought, Oh what the hell, a guy can dream or pretend can't he.... I touched the icon.
Low and behold the damn YouTube video popped up on my 47" LG 47LM6700-SA HDTV. What the hell is going on here. I switch to another video..boom there it is on the big screen. After trying more videos (all successful) I start to wonder...what is making this happen.
I then decide to install Netflix. I log on to Netflix and try the very first movie and...Boom! It's on the big screen. I've only had the TV for less than 6 months so why does it appear to have Chromecast baked in?
It's also interesting that both the TV and Nexus are LG products.

I also took the plunge and joined the club today (mostly from following this community and hearing all you fine people singing the praises of the Pixel) and got a Lte-I/O version from Amazon. Just missing one coupon from GoGo. 

If I buy a Pixel off Ebay that has the 1T Google Drive already registered am I still locked in to Drive or am I able to use another cloud storage provider.
