+Derek John van Nieuwkoop Here's a great app for keeping track of data usage. It can be a little buggy. But I love it's ability to predict how much data you'll have left over at the end of the month, based on your usage trend that month. Something I used to calculate myself.

I will try this and let you know how it goes. 
Today is a good day. I just had a call from a telemarketer. Did I yell and scream at them, you ask? Certainly not. Like a good IT administrator I put my skills to use for their benefit. Here's how the conversation went:

Computer: "Press 9 to not be contacted in the future. Press 4 to speak to someone about your mortgage issues"
<presses 4>
TM: "Hello, are you having problems paying your mortgage?"
Me: "Hi, this is the IT department. We intercepted your call as we detected a problem with you phone and need to fix it."
TM: "Oh... ok, well what do we need to do?"
Me: "We're going to need to fix the settings by pressing 4-6-8 and * at the same time"
TM: "Ok, nothing happened."
<alright, so he's not using a Polycom>
Me: "Are you using the new Polycom phones that we deployed?"
TM: "No, it's a Yealink"
Me: "Ok, I see. You haven't had the new Polycom phone deployed to your desk yet. Let me check our technical documentations for the Yealink."
<did a quick Google search, "yealink phone factory reset">
Me: "Alright, do you see an "OK" button on your phone?"
TM: "Yes I do"
Me: "Alright, you're going to press and hold that button for 10 seconds."
TM: "OK, pressing it now"
Me: "Perfect, let me know if you get a password request"
TM: "OK, nothing has popped up ye----"

That's right. I made a telemarketer unwittingly factory reset his phone which means he will be unable to make anymore calls until someone is able to reconfigure his phone and that will take at least an hour or longer if they can't do it right away!

That's surprisingly clever. Do all phishing emails do this?

I am in awe. You must check out this "Giga-pan" taken from the new World Trade Center.

Here is my minor problem: (Nexus 5) When I change the volume (buttons on the side) the on screen slider shows up to display change. After one notch the slider doesn't change further, it becomes stuck until it reappears, rinse-and-repeat. Also doesn't work to drag the slider with my finger (picture). Thanks for the help.

Used Cover for almost 2 weeks now and loving it. I can easily access applications from my lock screen, even take a quick peek at them. It turns my volume off when where I'm at school and at night. Does what an app should do; streamlines some processes and automates others.
