Playing with Android Auto for a while and wanted to share my personal review.  The system is a bit raw at this early stage, but should improve dramatically once the API is out.
First Glance Android Auto is a new in car entertainment most have not had a chance to experience for themselves.  It is fairly simple, a quick cable connection to the charge port on your supported Android phone and you are ...

Works really good.  It's better than I anticipated from other reviews of the 8100nex.  A lot of people say the display completely washes out to the point where you can't read anything.  I didn't have that problem, even in the convertable while wearing polarized sunglasses with direct sunlight.  I could still read the display better than some of the older OLED head units.

Here's a little write up I did getting Android Auto set up in my NC2.  Let me know if anyone has questions.
The Mazda Miata MX-5 isn't exactly new to the world, they released the 30 year anniversary edition just recently.  However, what I was wanting to change isn't exactly a simple plug and play.  Android Auto is something new fro...

Made my day seeing this. I'm sure the PR spin machine from apple is working overtime to highlight this as a feature. Apple fans, you will have more coolade to drink soon, don't worry.
 
Wow! Apple's iOS and OS X platforms have serious, unpatched security flaws that let researchers add malicious apps to both app stores and steal login credentials for iCloud, Mail and third-party services.
Researchers put malicious apps in the iOS and OS X app stores that stole data from other apps; Apple may not have fixed the underlying flaws.

About time they started rolling more Material Dark out to the masses.  I'm thinking Macademia Nut Cookie (note the round shape), M has been referred in a few places as MNC... which may just be another preview slip for a name changer later a la KLP.

So the material design of Google's Play Music is finally hitting users now.  My biggest gripe is they have taken away the star rating system that was available in Google Labs.  Now it's all Julius Ceasar rating system for the masses.  The other element that has been removed is the posting of material to Google+.  The material design update for the web does look quite sexy, just dammit Jim, I want my stars back.

Yeah, but click anywhere and it's gone. I like seeing my que so I can shuffle songs around or remove some or add some. The other guys in the shop also throw in some random songs from time to time, so the playlist.

Is it really just Silverlight that is dead... or is there more tech from Microsoft getting ready to fall flat on its face?

Keep it classy #brownbackistan .  Glad I don't live in Kansas.
On Thursday, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed a bill that threatens the entire state's judiciary with destruction if it rules against a law he favors. Brownback has spent much of his tenure attempting to curb the state supreme court and consolidate power in the executive branch. Thursday's startling maneuver suggests...

Very nice.  As always, America innovates.  In this case, in ways no Indian politician can imagine.  This is much more scalable, lasting and permanent than plain old bribery, blackmail, and extortion.

So here I am tonight... jamming out to a new found old school jumble of tracks.  Thought you guys might like a taste of some good psy/ambient track mix.  These VA/Mixes are hand picked and mixed by #DJTajmahal .

Out for a late drive tonight and saw the most redneck thing I've ever seen. Guy on a large quadrunner with two lawn mowers tide to the rear bumper pulling them to get the field mowed. I would have stopped to snap a pic but I was well over the next hill when I figured out what it was. Keep it classy Leavenworth.

This absolute dive of a bar is outshined by the cuisine and service. I've been a few times now and have enjoyed every meal. Oxtails are amazing and probably my favorite on the menu. Fried plantains and even Rum cake... this is the real deal. You can tell G-man has a lot of passion about his food. He's been there for over 20 years now and the decor proves it. Look past that and enjoy. The lunch specials are super cheap and extremely well done. Succulent falling off the bone chicken curry to perfectly seasoned oxtails.

Pros: There were rooms available with a fantastic mom&pop restaurant just across the parking lot. The camouflage is slightly out of season but after calling we finally found the front door. Cons: Regarding the camo, this place has no signage whatsoever outside of the standalone sign next to the road and in the restaurant parking lot. The window view was amazing. Just barely three feet from the window to the brick wall. At least we had very little traffic at night. The room was small. No closet small. There were also hidden power outlets scattered throughout the room. I had to move the bed and the half couch to find a single open outlet. If you are planning to charge things at night, bring a power strip of your own. The entry way was extremely slick, saw a person wipe out landing on his shoulders... almost looked rehearsed. The front desk clerk was extremely unhelpful about the situation. On my way out the door the floor was still very slick but they put a sign out overstating the obvious to protect them from lawsuits I guess. Wifi was extremely slow or non-existent. You can connect but go to the forever 404 place when trying to connect android phone, chromebook, or even through Linux. When bringing up the issue with the front desk all I got was "sorry, when we are booked the internet is slow" schpiel with no hopes of a fix. Hello, change your TTL setting on your cheap comcast router. Pros (part deux): While in the diner across the parking lot I had fantastic cell signal on T-Mobile. Cons (part deux): When I was walking back towards the hotel, my connection went completely dead. Tried turning it off and on again but it still didn't work (Thanks Roy).

Out of the many sub shop chains you can find out there I would say goodcents is probably my favorite. My problem with this place is they have horrible music blaring the entire time. It was so bad one time I had them make a delivery to my car right outside the shop. Horrible music, high employee turnover. I wonder how long this location is going to stay in business.

So the overbearing question that stands out for me... who allows a contractor to do any kind of construction at a hotel using power tools later than 8PM? Call the front desk and they were on top of it. So the power tools stopped. They broke out the air tools and proceded to commence stapling, cachunk cachunk cachunk like once every thirty seconds. I understand remodeling, but do so during the times when people are not occupying the rooms right next door. The other major issue is there was no place to charge devices like phones or laptops unless you wanted to leave the overhead light on all night. The only light switch in the entire room was connected to the outlets with the exception of one lamp, one alarm clock, and one TV, all of which were in places designed to play seek and go hide the outlets. Let's move the massive dresser with the wobbly tv on it to get to the power outlet, or even the mattress which feels like it's been velcro'd to the floor. Would be nice to have a readily accessible power station on each nightstand... couple usb power ports and a couple standard 110 outlets would be nice.

These guys are great. I've purchased three scooters from them over the years and will be back for more. I had a hard to track down electrical issue on one of my scooters, they were able to nail it and get me up and running pretty quick. Great sales staff. Mike is not only the owner of the shop, but a great scooter enthusiast as well.
