I'm starting a hunt for Pixel hinges and keycaps. Any leads would be apreciated. The keycap has the inscriptions TY 01 and G20 15X. I'm looking through every hinge in http://www.laptopkey.com/Hinges.php as well as other sites. I'm sure Google didn't invent these hinges, therefore they must exist somewhere for purchase. Again, leads would be highly apreciated... +Jua Kim +Brian Merrell

Optimized Games  - 
 
From Crescent Moon Games, the makers of Ravensword. At a dollar, it's an awesome game. Feature's LAN, Internet and same-device multiplayer. Supports same-device multiplayer with two controllers, if you have a tablet.

The biggest down side is that the trigger button is on Y, not R2. Also, don't enable the "look spring", it makes aiming really difficult. Hot tip: secret doors have cracks on them.

Supports all controllers.
No IAP's.

Isn't Comcast the company that has 250gb data caps? It's one of the things that made me kind of okay with Time Warner.

They are really going out of their way to make it seem like gorgeous people wear Glass. I'd be interested in someones sociological, psycological, and cinematographic analysis of this ad.

Wow, never thought I'd say this, but I might go for an amputation at some point in the future. Is that plastic surgery?
 
New bionics that let us run, climb and dance... now that's an idea worth spreading! Technology ftw.

What kills your motivation? And makes you uninspired about your work?

Dan Arielly, way better than that freakonomics guy IMO. He wrote predictably irrational, pretty sure there is a Ted talk about that too. Yes he has burns, he talks about that in the first chapter... With research.

Dream CordKiller box? Here is what I'm doing and what I'm looking forward to.

Currently I have a Google Compute Engine Instance, With a Plex server, a 1000mbps connection, and a web interface to download content from various sources. That box is accessible from my phone and allows me to get 1GiB movies, documentary and whole seasons of shows playing in under 3 minutes.

Its working great, but it was a bit of a pain to set up, even for a veteran Linux user. It takes about ~15 a month to run that 24/7, but with a cron job to shut down the box when I'm not using it, it should run under $4 a month. It is also space limited, only 50gb of hard drive space, which runs for $2 a month, that's cheaper than Google drive, but more expensive than Google Cloud storage.

It could also be more integrated, currently I manually go to the Outh2 API playground to start my server, the Google cloud console to check on my expenses, an SSH app to configure my box, SSH to shut it down, X2GO to visually configure it, myPlex to see the videos, a separate site to access my "content service" server on my box. It could be one app.

Given that my 5mbps Up connection can handle 2mbps upstreams, My dream box would have the following:

WiFi
bluetooth (for speakers)
Plex, with Plex remote
SSD
Fanless ( Absolutely Silent )
Transmission-daemon
4K-support (Intel HD 4000 can handle it, check AMD)
RSS downloader
Chrome
Screencasting (Flash content, Twitter, gifs... etc)
SSH (hackability and backup config)
No bright blue LED of death
Micro USB charging port (A la Chromebook 11)
Small (Max 6" x 3" x 7# ) Like a Madcatz M.O.J.O.
Run ArchLinux or Debian, (Android doesn't support half the list).

Android app or Mobile Website for Easy configuration of passwords and feeds, with bandwidth statistics, Recommended RSS feeds.

Chromecast HDMI input and switching from the app

This can be pulled off at ~$300. Wishful thinking?

Yeah, $300 is very low, but we also realize that cost is a huge factor and we need to look for inexpensive, but reliable parts.  Thanks Lucien, I have updated the list with these.

Bug reports  - 
 
Currently +FolderSync does not save the SSH private key to its own data folder... Which requires me to keep the private key in my "sdcard," which is accessible by any app with sdcard permissions. This is a frighteningly insecure approach.

While this security vulnerability gets fixed, does anyone know where I can put the private key so that it is accessible only to foldersync?

P.S. I really wish sftp sync allowed rsync... But oh well.

I will look into adding an option to copy the key to internal FolderSync storage. Will not help much on rooted devices though.

This place has definitely come down from its golden age. The two main complaints from other reviewers are a bit overblown. Hot water takes 30 minutes flat to arrive, but when it does it gets scalding hot. The shower head are quite a crapshoot on the other hand. It's not a big problem since the bathrooms are designed to be flooded, but its still disconcerting to see the water being thrown all over the place. I had an extra toothbrush from virgin and decided to scrub the nozzles of graduation hat shaped shower head. Clearing the stuck nozzles from the calcium deposits made the entire square shower head work as intended. Of course, there is a lot to love about this place. The floors an the stairs are entirely marble, with strong blue lighting. The rooftop restaurant itself is quite good and well decorated. The one thing that may really put people off, and the reason why its a budget hotel is its location. Its not in old delhi, but it feels like it. There are over a dozen hotels on the street, but it lacks side walks and greenery. Its a very good hotel, the roof top restaurant alone is worth it. Say nothing of the great WiFi, breakfast and luxurious atmosphere.

Wrong location. Makes you believe it's much closer to the airport than it really is.

When you look at the image in the google maps posting, you don't think of a restaurant with a vegetarian menu, a well dressed waiter and a wine shelf. Yet thats what I got when I visited. This is the only restaurant in syracuse with a two page Vegetarian menu, even strong hearts would have a hard time keeping up. And the dishes are genuinely fantastic.

I've called them four times... Got dumped once, without a warning. I've had a bad experience every other time, they are always 10 minutes or more late. I'm glad to say, there are better dispatchers in Syracuse! But this one is one of the worst. Don't take my word for it, but Quality Cabs has delivered in the worst conditions 315-706-TAXI
