I've been a Google Voice user for several years. I have a Nexus 5, use the Sprint network and have integrated my Google Voice number with my Sprint account.

I'm looking for suggestions on a few issues. How do I make sure that my Google Voice number is the one that shows up when I text people? And what app should I use on the phone to do that? I'm using Hangouts now and it creates a little bit of a problem because I'm not sure whether it's showing up on someone's phone or their Google Hangouts account. That means I have parallel conversations going with some people.

Any advice?

OK, so it's a journalist praising the value of journalism. That doesn't make her wrong. Worth considering as the trade devolves into a hobby.

Wise observations from a friend, who also happens to be a fearless journalist. You should read his book.

Yet another reason to love your library: Freegal. Sorry, no free gals (more likes legal meets frugal). You can download three free songs a week, and keep them from a fairly robust catalog. Both the Kansas City Public Library and the Mid-Continent Public Library are playing along.

Saw them at festival last fall. Fun mix, as their name implies, of Indian and Irish roots with an electronic buzz.

This includes a shout-out to Malcolm Garcia  -- a guy who gets out and sees the world and rewards readers with a gritty street-level view.

Google Latitude says I stopped by the Fairfax District this morning. News to me. But you can see how it simply misread the cell tower triangulation. Going to leave this on for a while, mostly for alibi purposes. But the privacy implications are pretty obvious.

Buffett goes all paper boy. As a former fish wrap slinger myself, I particularly appreciate the way he folds the papers before tossing them.
