Got an OTA update to my ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7 last night. It's not a Kit Kat update but can't seem to find what changes were in the update. Anyone else get this update and have any clue what's in it?

Maybe I just got a bad sample...never had a problem with my Nexus 7 (2012). Had to send my Nexus 7 (2013) back for warranty work twice.

Anyone else find a solution to the whole remote in perpetual sleep mode on the Vizio Costar?

BTW, below is a list of everything I have tried:

1. Factory reset on Costar.
2. Used fresh batteries.
3. Turned off remote power saving mode.
4. Deleted and re-paired remote with Costar (numerous times).
5. Reset IR blaster mode (Q+=+Space for 10 seconds).

Why oh why +Sprint did you re-download your bloatware to my phone and wipe out all my custom home screen settings? I removed this junk for a reason.

Well, and not to comment on the merits of ACA one way or another. However, just to put this number into perspective, there are approximately 47 Million people at or below the poverty level . Considering we have approximately 316 million people in the US, and of those, approximately 79 Million are under the age of 18 (these numbers are all from the Census bureau). 

That means there are Approximately 237 Million adults in the US. Once you take into account those numbers, that 7 Million number (less than 1% of the total adult population) doesn't seem so significant (at least to me it doesn't). I would have expected it to be much higher. Again, this is simply putting this number into perspective. This not to say that ACA is a bad thing, it just seems to me that number is still way too low.

Ok, just got a new OTA update on my Costar last night. Anyone know what it's for? I wasn't aware a new update was available and last time I checked I had the latest version.

Have gone here for several years now. Always good service and they even sold me a name brand tire that was cheaper and better than one I had originally picked out. I will continue to go here for my tire needs.

Best Chinese take out in the area. I'm a huge crispy beef fan and this place has the best I've had in MD. Large portions too (always some left for the next day). Note: I didn't rate the decor because I've never actually been to restaurant, always order delivery. Also there are other restaurants with the name Chopstix, don't confuse them with this one that has two Xs in the name (Chopstixx).

I used to use this particular NTB in the past without issues. However, the last time I went here, the girl at the front counter ended up losing my locking lug key after I walked to my vehicle and got it, returning inside and handing it to her. Then she along with the manager accused me of not giving it to her even after my daughter stood there and also told them that yes, I gave it to the girl (pointing right at her). They all but called me a liar and even went so far as the manager announcing loudly that he was going to go on the highway where I changed to my spare tire to look for my lock that I lost. At this point I was livid and admittedly lost my temper and raised my voice pretty much going off on them. It wasn't until I told them to just forget it and bring my vehicle back out, that I would go elsewhere for tires, before the manager finally conceded and made the statement "looks like I have to pay for ANOTHER set of locking lugs". At this point I was flabbergasted because to me his statement sounded as if this wasn't the first time his staff had lost lug keys. To make matters worse, two days later when I went to have my brakes done (someplace different), the mechanics found one of the lugs on my front tire had been cross threaded and the only way to get the lug and wheel off was to actually break off the lug post. Now I can't prove anything, but I believe the NTB staff did this on purpose in retaliation for the incident. But again, that is just my opinion and I can't prove it. Needless to say I had to pay the mechanics doing my brakes to replace the lug post, and needless to say I filed a complaint with NTB Corporate (not that it made a difference). I haven't gone to NTB since and never will again.

Nice bunch of people working there. Always friendly and very knowledgeable. They have one of the largest selections of firearms in the Glen Burnie area and I have purchased (and sold) numerous firearms from them over the years.
