Don't let them damn renters disable your cams! 'MURICA! Haha. No really, this could be helpful.

An informative read, check it out:
http://yhoo.it/1xtkGEI
Five days ago, I awoke to find an angry 15-year-old standing at the foot of my bed, intent on causing me grievous bodily harm. Fortunately, the most lethal thing my daughter had at her disposal was a pillow. “If you don’t take that thing off my phone right now, I’m going to murder you in your sleep,” she seethed.

Is it just me, or does Fenway's [outfield] grass look like rubbish?  Seems awfully patchwork - which is unusual, as I normally am very impressed with it.  #redsox

Why doesn't G+ show all chat contacts that are online, idle etc? I have to go to Gmail to initiate chat messages. Weak.

I'm getting the same thing and found this comment in my google search. It's the same set of contacts between gmail and g+, but g+ simply doesn't show anyone who is listed as idle (orange clock icon), whereas gmail shows everyone regardless of status.

This tech isn't install and push to prod!
In light of the recent incident of MacKeeper exposing 13 million accounts through a public, unauthenticated MongoDB instances I wanted to quickly revisit my earlier blog post on the subject. At the moment, there are at least 35,000 publicly...

So I've been using a #googlenexus5 since April - and over the past month, I've noticed that the top-left corner of my #nexus5 keeps popping out of the "Nexus 5 Bumper Case." 

I thought that the wireless charging may have heated it up and warped the case - so I carried on, no big deal.

Today, I took the phone out of the case and with said case 'open side up,' pressed on each corner - it didn't budge.  I was expecting it to tip like my crooked sunglasses do, but not the case.

Then, I do the same thing with my #nexus glass / screen down.  When pressing the bottom left corner, the top right corner pops up. 

#bendgate for my #nexus5 .  No way! 

Full disclosure.
I keep my phone in my left pocket, screen against my leg (so I don't whack into something and crack the screen), headphone jack down.  Well, unless I'm using the headphones, then I most likely have a jacket on & it's in an upper chest pocket.

On reddit I found that it's happened before - but not that much:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Nexus5/comments/24nwak/
https://www.reddit.com/r/Nexus5/comments/2igwzu/

I did call #google tonight - and caused my "agent" to chuckle repeatedly when he heard of my phone being warped.  At first I found it amusing as well - but after 10 minutes, seriously, it's not that funny and he really got on my nerves - as nice as he was. 

After being placed on hold 3-4 times for him to research this 'issue,' he came back with "after speaking with my supervisor, it seems to be customer induced damage and that's not covered under warranty." 

So, then I politely ask to speak to whomever he just spoke with and another hold ensues.  He comes back to say that they'll replace this one time only.

I said I'd think about it -- and requested that he note the case with his offer in case I decide to take them up on it.

Now, since I've been anticipating the #nexus6 - do I wait and see if it also has a similar #apple #bendgate ?

Yes, I over-hashed because this is one of my few public posts and could use the visibility.

Feedback!  Please!
