+Ron Cole What does the battery do? It powers your home..it saves you money rather than you pay the power company every month as I'm sure you do and last but not least..you say you it will cost you money to keep it charged.... ummm no its not....Thats what the solar panels are for. The light comes from the sun which doesnt cost you a brown penny. The panels keep the battery charged which has enough power to run your home. This is what power companies dont want you to know.. this is what the news media and negative ppl against solar want you to think..This is where you do your own homework instead of following what others THINK they know. No offense but this is the best thing to come about.

Is there any news on when the droid Maxx will get 5.0 or 5 1? It's been awhile and this phone was promised an upgrade several months getting close on a year now!

I had an iPhone 4S and then a 5c. I decided to move to Android for more customization options. I have to say that even with iPhones all getting iOS updates at the same time, it doesn't mean there aren't problems and bricked phones. My Droid is working fine, and while I want Lollipop, I'm quite happy with KitKat at the moment.

A friend of mine has a gateway laptop that came with window 8.1. She hated windows so she paid someone to downgrade her machine to window 7. However the guy put a non genuine copy on the laptop which which as you know started causing problems. I took the machine and loaded a genuine copy of home premium 64 bit, however, I am not able to find the sm bus controller or USB 3.0 drivers for the machine. The machine works well enough for her to type a school paper and watch Netflix so it's not a huge deal but I don't want not having the sm bus driver to cause issues down the road. Does anyone know where to locate the drivers? I feel that since the machine was made for 8.1 originally that I won't be able to find them though and she will just have to wait until the free windows 10 upgrade is available later in the year.

My camera kept giving me an error so I factory reset my Maxx. I had all my pictures set to back up to Google but no pictures from this year were backed up. Does anyone know away to get my pictures for the last 2.5 months back. These pictures include the pics from the vacation my wife I took to the mountains in February. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Ok How do you not include AC/DC! I mean they have 3 or 4 songs off the top of my head that could be on this list and Thunderstruck could possibly #1. The only reason i can think of is that you classified them as hard rock and not metal! Also Anthrax should be on this list having several songs as well that could make the list!

I tether my Verizon unlimited plan to a laptop and through ICS share the connection to my netgear router. I have 4 or five devices connected to the router. This set up works well as is but I want to do some professional testing like set up a domain with a ad ds, dhcp, and dns servers. I have been messing around with this setup but have run into problems I can't solve. I have been able set the domain controller and the dhcp and dns servers and they seem to to work. I point the the clients to the dns server and they get the assigned dhcp addresses;however, I am not sure if this is working correctly bc whenever I turn off the the dns and dhcp setting on the router it stops getting internet and it keeps saying invalid gateway when I try to set the static ip on the router. I Have tried numerous configurations with no success. I know to trully have this set up the correct way I need to turn off the dhcp and DNS setting on the router and have everything done by the server and that's where I am having issues.does anyone have any ideas or is it something that just can't be done because of the nature of the tethering software?

+John Rambo Ok Guys thanks for all your help. I finally managed to figure out the issue. I was trying to set the static ip in the wrong place. I didn't realize the the initial internet setup page was for the wan settings. Once I realized that and found the lan section and put the static there everything worked fine. Stupid mistake but that's the purpose of my setup so I can learn. I also wasn't sure if the odd nature of the tethering setup and the software was causing issues or not. Once again thanks for the help.

Not true at all. For starters, even a basic 150-N router is going to be faster than almost everyone in America's home internet connection. Most personal speeds top out at 50-100Mbps, and that's usually pretty expensive, so your internet will still be the bottleneck, not your Wi-Fi.
Switches act the exact same way in wireless routers as wired, and it doesn't really matter whether you are splitting by time share or bandwidth, every added device still takes maximum capacity from the others. Of course, this is beside the point in a practical matter, because the internet connection is still a much bigger problem for most people than lan speed.

So I had an issue with my Maxx last month. The camera messed up. So I got a replacement from Verizon. I have had the phone about a month and half and the active display works half the time the twist wrist to launch camera has worked like twice and watch ESPN app always crashes (this is the only phone that has happened on ever)! Verizon said they were sending a new phone but this one may be refurbished. Lol any one know any possible fixes to these issues? I might bitch at Verizon and see if I can get a Turbo out of them since another phone would make 4 maxxes ( I also had a issue with a software update on my first phone).

Encase anyone was wondering I couldn't get a turbo BC I wasn't willing to give up my unlimited plan but I got $100 in credit to my bill so I was happy enough with the result.

Crazy!
 
Some people in Minneapolis have 10 Gigabit/second Internet speed, 300 times faster than the speed most have. :)  
One small internet service provider is giving Google Fiber a run for its money, but offering connections with ten times as much speed. US Internet, based in the Minneapolis suburb of Minnetonka, a...

It's a good local place to go for lunch or a quick dinner. It's not fancy or an elaborate menu but what's on the menu is pretty good.
