I forgot to say anything about Now TV & Chromecast it just works :)
NOW TV has quietly updated its iOS and Android apps with support for Google Chromecast. The first I learnt of this was when updating NOW TV for iPad earlier today. This doesn't displace the NOW TV Box (based on a Roku LT) for...

NASA X-29 Research Aircraft: View 1
This look-down view of the X-29 research aircraft in flight over California's Mojave Desert shows its striking and unique forward swept wing and canard design.

The X-29 vehicle was a single-engine aircraft, 48.1 feet long with a wingspan of 27.2 feet. Each aircraft was powered by a General Electric F404-GE-400 engine producing 16,000 pounds of thrust. The program was a joint effort of the Department of Defense’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the U.S. Air Force, the Ames-Dryden Flight Research Facility, the Air Force Flight Test Center, and the Grumman Corporation. The program was managed by the Air Force's Wright Laboratory, Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.

I am sure you are aware of the Microsoft’s announcement of the CTP release of DSC for Linux. This is an exciting announcement and I wanted to explore more on this. There is a very useful step-by-step guide by Kristopher Bash on the Microsoft Building…

+John Hood when trying out the chromecast I had to remove a device or two form my account big mistake,

Later come to use my Now TV Box I got an error message saying I could not active any more devices until next month this was while I still had one unused device slot in my account :(

Found the relevant help page here http://bit.ly/Help-DeviceLimit this little gem is something everyone needs to be aware of.

"When you've registered your four devices in a month, you'll be able to remove as many as you want but only add one. This could mean you're not using four devices but still getting the device limit reached message."

Quick Live Chat with Now TV help the Now TV Box is working again.
