I completely missed this. Comcast now controls Universal Studios. And Universal has actually had quite the list of such owners recently. Well Comcast wants to spend a lot of money. By 2016, 70% of the park will have been redone! With talks of park hotels and improving transit. Sadly I have been there during peak times and the main walking pathes are simply too small. I worry that these new expansions will only increase crowds and hurt the already redone waking paths.

Clarify? Hmmm, since Gmail was closed beta, Google has been open about how it reads emails to supply targeted ads. Though I am sure there are a ton of people who are not aware of this. 

On the flip side, does anyone know of a free email provider that does NOT read your emails? Excluding ISP based email services as you are paying for that. I don't have an issue with Google's robots reading my email as long as it remains automated and not shared with other humans without a warrant. But that is another debate that affects ALL email services.

In an attempt at clarity, Google has amended its terms of service to say that it analyzes private data, including emails, for purposes including the delivery of ads and customized search results.The changes to its terms of service, announced this week, come as Internet users continue to grapple with how and why companies handle their data.In one recent high-profile example, Microsoft faced a backlash following reports that it had actually read so...

I think I need to return the Roku 3 that I just bought. While slightly larger, it's much more powerful and there is an optional gamepad! The remote looks easier to use with a center select button and voice control.

Spielberg, Disney, Chris Hemsworth, and Anne Hathaway... all big names. Yet I haven't heard of it until now. Moviefone shows it having an April 2014 release date. Yet IMDB says it's still in development. And other sites say the project has been dropped or at least postponed. What is going on?

VR movies? Yes Please! Combined with motion seating, VR headsets are the next big thing for amusement parks too.

http://buff.ly/1pWW517
It’s 2035, and you’ve gathered your family into the living room to watch old home movies together. You each strap on your virtual reality headset, and the image comes into view—a young Aunt Petunia, in glorious 3D, lurching toward the punch bowl with all the grace of a drunken elephant. Virtual reality isn’t just the future of games. As Oculus has been quick to tell us every time we’ve talked, games are just the beginning. There isn’t even a co...

VR to some implies freedom, the ability to turn your head to control what you see. But I would prefer VR movies without head tracking. But it would be cool to have short VR movies where you have a little bit of head tracking to view a world a little. For CGI based VR films, it would be easy. But for filmed VR movies, you have to keep mics and crew out of view. Also, I am curious how one would deal with cuts and transitions in a VR film. As doing long continuous shots takes a lot of effort.

You have likely seen and tried using this hand dryer. I can't stand it. I still prefer paper based hand drying so I can use the paper to touch the door handle on exiting. But I hate this air dryer because it's near impossible to dry your hands without touching the edges where everyone else is also touching. And personally, I don't think it's all that quiet or effective. And try counting to 12 seconds in a public bathroom, it's a long time.

I just went to Bell Honda for the first time. While it is closet to my home, I have generally been going to another Honda Dealership close to work. I took my 2003 Odyssey to Bell Honda for recall work and transmission fluid exchange. While I have had good experiences with various Honda Dealers and Service centers, my service advisor Brian Appleton, and the tech that worked on my van, Jacob Murillo, really made this visit stand out. I wanted my transmission fluid exchanged per the maintenance schedule as I am going to Disneyland in the near future. With service schedules in mind, I was asked about my timing belt. I didn't have that listed in my personal records as I am the 2nd owner. Brian was very helpful by contacting a dealership in California. Where he pulled up more records and found that the last time the belt was replaced, was also the first time. Back at 86k miles. Since I am at 161k miles, I was way overdue for a new timing belt. Had Brian not taken the time and effort to ask about my maintenance history as a new customer to their dealership, I could very well be stranded on my trip to Disneyland. At the same time, he was helpful in making sure other items were inspected and replaced using the same labor cost under the timing belt replacement. This of course is nothing new for any good shop to provide, but he also made sure they were competitive with non-dealer prices so I could do everything at one time. Which not only made sure I didn't spend more than I had to, but also that I didn't have to deal with more time without my van and going all over the place. Likely duplicating labor cost. Jacob Murillo, the mechanic, spent extra time at not cost to me, to make sure repairs where done correctly. While he did run into an issue, he made sure that was not an excuse to rush things. Both Brian and Jacob showed me what quality service and repair is all about. And that is something that really stood out to me above my other experiences. Which those Honda experiences where great as well, but this one was even more and I appreciate the extra effort that came from both of them. As much as I have had good experiences at Honda service centers, I really want to thank Bell Honda for having people like Brian Appleton and Jacob Murillo. It does make a noticeable difference, even when it's excellence all around from Honda service centers.
