Hey New Hampshire!!  Pay attention!  If Worcester can do it, so can we! :p
Worcester City Council can't block the transfer but is making its voice heard.

If you ask it to listen to music is doesn't like, can it respond and say "Homey don't play dat!"?

Too lazy to flick on a light switch? There's a Kickstarter campaign you should check out. Homey isn't the first crowdfunded home automation platform

For those who have not heard, my dad has passed away this past Thursday. Any of you who have met him, loved him and will greatly miss him. The link to the obituary is here with calling hours, address and such.

I think the only worry I have is for anyone who passes on from here on out, as heaven will NEVER be the same again. 

Lots of love Dad, you are already immensely missed.

How is it 2014 and Google, who's TWO OS's are based on Linux, NOT have a Linux Drive client?!  They can drop their prices all they want, but if I can't access the drive on all my devices, it's kinda useless to me.

Dropbox 1; Google Drive 0.

This will be nice to escape the shackles of my S4 bloatware and eliminate the slowness of my 2012 Nexus 7! :)

So +Verizon Wireless , how do you expect to keep these idiotic data limiting plans, yet offer services to have folks use MORE of their limited plans?  I believe it was your CEO that stated unlimited data plans are not profitable, however isn't loosing customers also unprofitable?  Who is going to stick with a carrier that can't use your service anymore because they hit a cap.  And then they were raked over the coals for overage charges.

If folks could only drive their car 500 miles a month before they needed to hand over the automaker more money, no one would drive..

LTE isn't just about getting incredibly fast data speeds on our smartphone or tablet. Sure, that's been what the technology's been primarily used for

I still want to know when I can remove all this Samsung bloatware off my S4 once these services are no more!!!  My thoughts are that it will be a slim to none chance of doing so...  And Slim just left town with the Nun...  :p
In the latest in a series of changes that Samsung is making to its multimedia apps, they announced today that they are shutting down their Music and Video Hub, effective August 1, 2014. Just a few weeks ago, they also ...
