With Google apparently planning to strip SMS from Hangouts (among other irritants), Microsoft is looking better than ever. That, being said, I'm still an open-source guy at heart.

I love Hangouts because it integrates SMS, MMS, messaging, video calls, and smartly sends each type of message to any of your devices (smartphone, tablet, PC). Also, you can tell when people have read your messages and which device they are on. Integrating all of this is super convenient! Is their another messaging service that offers all this? I don't think so. If they strip SMS/MMS from Hangouts, that will significantly reduce its value.

"KODI/KODI-BUILDS/XBMC"  - 
 
What do you think is the best kodi build for the Nvidia Shield TV Pro. I want a family friendly build (no adult content if possible) that is stable and for which live TV EPG (Electronic Program Guide) is stable and consistently works. I've tried the following builds:

SilenceROM Wizard
King Kodi Nebula (very glitchy, but I might have made and error install.
TB Build (current build: Movies are good, but they are a little jerky during play)

I don't need something super bloated, but I have a 4K TV so lots of HD content and sports is desired. I'm grateful for any feedback.

I've tried many but prefer SchismTv over all the rest for its cleaner UI.

Dr Rehrer is great with kids. Each time he’s treated one of our kids, he’s taken the time listen to us and address our concerns. You can tell he takes pride in his work really wants the best possible outcome. He’s especially good at developing a rapport with kids to put them at ease. He has five kids of his own -- so that connection comes easily for him. He’s a smart guy, but takes the time to make sure we understand the procedure, any alternatives, pros/cons, and anticipated outcomes. I’ve learned that dentistry is an increasingly competitive profession. As a result, many dentists seek to supplement their revenue by performing work that has traditionally been done by oral surgeons. Most dentists don’t have the specialized training required of oral surgeons. If you need your wisdom teeth removed or other complex procedures, you’re far better off using an oral surgeon. Beacon OMS seems like an outstanding group of professionals and Dr Rehrer gets my highest recommendation.

I purchased an Amana microwave (model AMV1150VAS) from Appliance Clinic on 3/22/2014. On 4/12/15, it stopped cooking (no heat at all) -- just three weeks after the manufacturer's one-year limited warranty expired. First, I emailed Amana customer service to respectfully request a three-week grace period on their warranty - no reply. Second, I called Amana. They were very courteous, but would not cover the appliance three weeks out of warranty. A company that builds their products to last only a little over a year (just outside their warranty period) will never get my business again! Then, I called Appliance clinic because I have a 10-year warranty from them. They said their warranty covers only the cost of a single part -- the magnetron and does not cover the cost of labor. They said it would cost over $100 to have a technician come diagnose the problem. When I complained, the person at appliance clinic said they would email the manufacturer to see if they could get them to bend on covering my microwave, but I never heard back from appliance clinic. I'm not saying anything against their repair competence, but I'd never again buy a product from them. Given the short durations this microwave functioned, I'm amazed that neither the manufacturer nor Appliance Clinic were willing to help me out. Lessons learned: 1) Don't purchase Amana products. 2) Don't purchase products from Appliance Clinic. Update: From Home Depot, I purchased the GE JVM3160RFSS microwave for $249 to replace the faulty Amana I purchased from Appliance Clinic. I also purchased a 5-year protection plan that covers all parts and labor for $60.

I ate there once, in February 2014, and the food wasn't bad and the service was good. However, I had digestive issues afterward. I went back and asked them what kind of oil they use in a certain dish. They told me vegetable oil. I'm trying to avoid GMOs, so I asked them what kind of vegetable oil. The server went to ask someone in the back. When he came back, he said they don't know what kind of vegetable oil they use. If restaurant management doesn't care enough to know specifically what kind of ingredients they use in their food, I'm not interested in eating there. I ate elsewhere.

Over the years, I've seen many doctors and Dr Webster is one of the best! So many doctors have an air of superiority and sometimes even talk condescendingly to their patients. Although very knowledgeable, Dr Webster seeks to learn from his patients -- he really listens. If symptoms or conditions don't neatly fit into the typical allopathic paradigm, he's willing to explore other possibilities. Dr Webster really shines if you are a proactive about your health care. He seems to especially enjoy our visits when I've done research and come well-prepared discuss my medical issues. Highly recommended!!

Compared to other burger joints, the taste of these burgers are 2nd to none. I have a vegetarian friend who occasionally cheats because Killer Burgers are so good. These are awesome burgers. On the negative side, the downtown store is not as clean as the Vancouver store. Also, some of the employees look like they haven't showered in a couple of days. This combination doesn't leave the best impression regarding the sanitary condition of the food. Also, KB is pretty low tech. As a busy professional, I call my order in ahead because this location is usually packed and the food takes a while to cook. Five Guys has an Android app that lets you order in advance, pay from your phone, and pick up the order with no need to wait in line to pay (now that's efficient). Five Guys rocks this! I wish KB had a similar app. Still, I prefer KB burgers and fries over Five Guys. One inconsistency is the downtown store takes Amex, but the Vancouver store does not -- odd.
