Does anyone know of another way to test if your ISP (ex Comcast) might be throttling traffic (ex Netflix)?

My download speeds are currently around 14mb but Netflix is completely unusable, sigh.

Is it possible to install Android Auto on an old Nexus 7? I would love to re-factor my old tablet into a car stereo.
For the road ahead. Android Auto was designed with safety in mind. With a simple and intuitive interface, integrated steering wheel controls, and powerful new voice actions, it's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road.

Sneaky Yahoo...

I opened up my Yahoo Mail this morning and got a little message about installing a quick little Chrome extension that would simply let me know when new mail was in my Yahoo Mail inbox. Sounded nice and harmless enough so I installed it. 

Well, not only does it do that BUT it also overrides search engine and opening new tabs so its is ALL THINGS YAHOO. Sneaky Yahoo, very sneaky.

Uninstalled.

I got the question, "Obama is from" and neither Hawaii nor Kansas were on the list. Kenya is number one. People are stupid

Just saw this on House of Cards and thought it was Ubuntu... Guess not
Spoiler alert! A leaked image appeared earlier on the web, a screenshot from Episode 3 of the third season of the acclaimed House of Cards TV show distributed by Netflix, showing actors playing as members of the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) while using their computers where the operating system might look like the Ubuntu Linux distribution.

Denver meteorologists nailed it yet again. Good thing they don't get paid only when they are right.

You might want to check out +Weather5280. Their forecast for today looks like it was pretty spot on, or at least close enough to be prepared for today's conditions:

Anyone else having issues with geo-location trusted places for smart lock? It seems to be broken, we've tried removing and re-adding them, resetting settings, etc. No luck.

My gf saw this image on my phone and said it looks like Mac OS X. Apparently having the title-bar color as any variant of gray makes it a Mac. Meanwhile my inner-nerd gently weeps :/

Yuki Sushi Robata is my favorite sushi restaurant in south Denver area. The sushi is very fresh and has great flavor. The sushi rice is best in town, cooked perfectly. The prices are great with $1 nigiri all day.
