So far android 5.1 appears to deliver on the promise of a fast smooth OS upgrade. At the moment it is remarkably more responsive than 5.0.1.

My LGS are a bunch of money hoarding idiots. And they have NO idea how to run websites or web shops. They got my email + identity stolen and refuse to even discuss what they're going to do about it. (I know for a fact since I used a unique email on their website, and suddenly got sent spam on the same address by spam bot networks).

Holy &%$#!
Marvel's Agent's of S.H.I.E.L.D latest episode (The Things we bury) punched me in the gut.  I did not think it could get that intense and heartbreaking.

Very nice!  Getting closer. #Ceres
 
On approach to dwarf planet #Ceres, new images from our Dawn spacecraft hint at a cratered surface. Over the next several weeks, Dawn will deliver increasingly better and better images of the dwarf planet, leading up to the spacecraft's capture into orbit around Ceres on March 6.

I'm curious about this.  I know I have not given away enough.

This post is for a very small segment of people viewing this (possibly just me). It is for those people who like Christopher Lee (Played Saruman the white in the Hobbit and Lord of the rings movies) and you like Christmas music AND you like heavy metal music.  Both 'albums' only have 2 songs and the second one has only one Xmass song, but makes up for it by the most awesome rendition of My way I have ever heard.

Your welcome!

I think you are right +Omair Qazi; the wild way he swings the quarterstaff in the movies is a hint of it!

I liked these two comments at the bottom of the article. 
"Three movies in a row with James Earl Jones' voice only to reveal Darth Vader was white all along and you're mad at one Black stormtrooper?"
and 
this monstrosity is canon [Pic of Jar Jar binks] and people are claiming that having a black stormtrooper is "unrealistic" 
Mashable
'Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens' features a black stormtrooper -- get over it and go back to complaining about the lightsaber.

In the trailer you see a short Stormtrooper right in the center of the shot.  We also have Star Wars Rebels showing how they are recruits, and since all new Star Wars stories are now canon thanks to the story group (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Lucasfilm_Story_Group) all SW stories from now on will be canon.

Very frustrating stay. The first night none of our smart phones or tablets was able to get connected to the Internet (I spent many hours figuring it out). Right after I fixed the issue, three Internet access points near us stopped working. Every time I asked someone to fix it, and I got the same answer. "we reset them let's hope it works" when I let them know it did not, they would say"we will call someone in". This sequence of events happened 3 times. The in the end we got no help whatsoever.
