Wow, this rocks. I can't imagine how many quarters I wasted on this game a few decades ago. Now its free!
Sega-Galaga (セガ・ギャラガ) is the SG-1000 port of Galaga, and is strangely the only port to receive a name change. The player pilots a starship and...

NSFW but worth it
 
The Disney princesses -- classic vs. millennial -- throw down in an epic rap battle. http://www.nerdist.com/2014/09/disney-princesses-throw-down-in-epic-rap-battle/
Disney Princesses know how to throw down a sick beat, and here’s the video to prove it. By the way, the lyrics are a bit explicit so maybe wait to share it with your Disney-loving kid sibling(s). In case you…

One thing led to another...
Hmm, it made more sense when the pics were in order. Dropped the phone on Friday, cracking the screen. It kept working until Saturday morning when the top half of the screen stopped accepting touch input. I opened my laptop to Google "Nexus 4 screen replacement" and found a permanent, daughter-sized footprint on it. Ugh! So, I drove all around looking for places that sell unlocked phones and ended up at the T-Mobile store getting a Nexus 5.

Savannah decided to take her first steps today. And I was wearing Google Glass when it happened. #throughglass

Thank you Google.  I knew you could do it.  Free voice, SMS, and MMS via Hangouts + Google Voice is a game-changer, turning my wireless carrier into the Wireless ISP they should be.  Now we consumers who have stuck with you through years of neglect of Google Voice's promise can hold our WISPs responsible for data connection quality and stop getting distracted by texting, minutes, and other nonsense.  Bits are bits.

Using some instructions I found on xda-developers (http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-4/general/guide-setup-asterisk-server-google-t2126964) I had cobbled together a similar capability for free for a year.  The problem was that it was unreliable in terms of voice quality.  One moment, it was crystal clear, complete dropout the next.  

I'm hoping you've been working on this capability while people like those who put those instructions up were tinkering. Having owned GrandCentral for many years, now, you should have all the codec, jitter, routing, capacity, and other issues worked out.

Now for the real question:  Why?  You've partnered with US wireless carriers in the past, even lobbied for exceptions to Net Neutrality when it comes to wireless service, and this free service has the potential to make many of their paid services utterly irrelevant.  Google is a publicly-traded business with stockholders to answer to.  The costs of providing free VOIP can't be hidden forever.  You're not serving ads in the middle of my phone calls, so what's in it for you?  What am I giving up that is implied somewhere in the fine print of the terms of service that you can make money on?  Your users need to know this answer in order to trust the service.  Changing phone numbers is disruptive these days.  Are we signing up for a sustainable service or one that will be cut in a few months or years?  We also need to trust that something nefarious isn't being done with this rich new volume of data we're providing you as we use your free service.

Well, I couldn't build a real one in 3D, so this was my compromise.
