GMail is 10 today! My oldest GMail message is from June 21st 2004. I got the invite from a CodeProject user IIRC.

Blagged mine from someone called Kevin Ford on Blogspot who had one spare. This was about 3 months after it had started. Never looked back.

Since last week I keep getting Device Lost errors in the Nextflix app when using my Chromecast. Both Netflix and the Chromecast have received updates in that time I believe and it's driving me nuts. I can start streaming something and then Netflix loses the connection so I cannot pause/stop/etc. A couple of minutes later and the Chromecast icon reappears in my notification shade and it works again for a few minutes, then disappears again. I have factory reset the Chromecast but it made no difference. I am in the UK and have a US Chromecast. It used to work perfectly. Is anyone else experiencing this?

The updated Motorola Gallery has a new Timeline view that isn't as good as before. It's like the Google Photos app and that's not a good thing. Sigh.

Another record and a decent time but I may be upping my game too quickly. Tomorrow I'm going to be hurting!

Chromecast Woes

Since last week I keep getting Device Lost errors in the Nextflix app when using my Chromecast. Other apps are also misbehaving. The Chromecast received an update in that time I believe and it's driving me nuts. I can start streaming something and then my device loses the connection so I cannot pause/stop/etc. But the content carries on playing. A couple of minutes later and the Chromecast icon reappears in my notification shade and it works again for a few minutes, then disappears again. I have factory reset the Chromecast but it made no difference. I am in the UK and have a US Chromecast. It used to work perfectly. My router settings have not changed either. I have tried three different Android devices and all are the same. Is anyone else experiencing this?

The Google Play Music "I'm Feeling Lucky" radio station contains a bizarre mix of music that is not even close to the stuff I like or listen to. Is there any way to reset it and start from scratch?

Epic pricing, it's just mental. Well worth it.
