This has started happening to me all the time. See how the YouTube app gets the Chromecast icon but Netflix doesn't? Chromecast is connected to the correct network, and I've tried closing out the apps and it still doesn't work.

Are those apps or widgets in the pic? If they're widgets, my guess is only one app can use the cc at a time. Try removing the YouTube widget...

NSA admits listening to U.S. phone calls without warrants

So here is the text from the 4th Amendment:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Now here is how the government behaves.

Now my issue here is not with the situation under scrutiny but rather with how Americans fight to retain the 2nd Amendment (the right to bear arms) but when it comes to government bodies snooping and walking all over the 4th Amendment they seem Ok with it.

You can sum it up this way, it's Ok to kill but it's not Ok to be killed.

The constitution was meant as a wise and balanced document that established principals, sadly those principals have been replaced by convenient legal interpretation.

America you can no longer quote your constitution as it is no longer worth the paper it's written on.

This guy decided to take a stand against what he saw as wrong and decided it should be opened up to the public.  His life is at stake and anyone else that's important to him.  I can't believe that this has been going on for so long and only until now did someone finally blow the whistle.  

Unfortunately, technology in surveillance has outpaced our understanding of the 4th amendment.  People need to decide if they're OK trusting a coercive government to just "do the right thing" and not abuse the power they have in front of them.  It's only a matter of time before a new bureaucrat is in charge of vital information and uses it unjustly.  To anyone that says that if you don't have anything to hide then you have no need to worry.  To them I say send me all your passwords and other important information about you.  Don't you trust me?

My wife doesn't like our Chromebook because she can't print coupons.  A large portion of her time on the computer is for printing coupons.  

As far as I know, there's no way to print coupons using Chrome OS for common websites like target.com and coupons.com.  What's a Chrome OS fan to do?  If Chrome OS was capable of printing coupons from these websites, she'd be all about it.

The reason they use an extension is to prevent just that ^. They only want a coupon to be used once rather than an infinite amount, so there is only the option to send it immediately to the printer. No print preview, no files to potentially save or screenshot.

Found this guy dead on my patio this morning. I'm glad we sprayed recently because my kids might have played with it! #centipede #dangerous

From time to time, and consistent across different devices (iPhone, android, chromebook), the chromecast icon disappears and I can't cast to my tv. I'm like 99% sure it's connected to the correct router. I've even factory reset the chromecast and I still get the same result. Anyone else get this?

I have two simple suggestions that I think will be simple to implement and I know people will love:

Display the location where the screen saver image was taken.

Have a portion of the screen saver images be from the local area where the chromecast is located.

Since Utah (and a few other states) have legalized gold and silver as legal tender, are there any banks that I can deposit precious metals and draw against it with a debit card or check?

Interesting: https://www.perpetualassets.com/silver-debit-card
But I wonder if they are available to Americans, and if so how were they able to do that when Peter Schiff couldn't with his.

I also submitted feedback and they kindly pointed me at their "supported browsers/operating systems" which includes this:
    Not supported platforms. Coupon printing is not yet supported under Windows Operating Systems using Firefox 3.5, Google Chrome or Safari 4 or for Mac OS X using Safari 4ot Supported: Coupon printing is not supported under Linux, Unix, or Web TV 

Target Coupons are missing the entire mobile internet (tablets, smart phones) and about 40% of the (declining) desktop users. #fail

This is an interesting idea, shifting the focus from consumerism toward productive capacity.  I think it'd be even better if the students that are interested in this subject could choose to learn more instead of making everyone learn it.
