Can't read the icon text. I haven't made any changes to Nova since I installed it.

You can change the icon font color in settings / desktop / icon size.

Although using the rotating wheel feels cool, it's actually really slow to use and feels clumsy. Not something id like to use on a regular basis.

Help needed getting chromecast working with hotel WiFi.

I'm in a hotel in Barcelona and they have an open (non secured) WiFi network that is protected by a username and password that must be added via a web page when you first start browsing the internet.

I need to find a way to add this username and password using a browser on the chromecast. I'm sure it's theoretically possible, but I currently don't know of an app that will let me browse the net with the CC.

Anybody any ideas?

If a Google car is in a situation where it is about to hit a pedestrian, will it know that the better option is to veer into a nearby lamppost instead? If not, then we'll never see these self driving cars on the roads.

Tips and Tricks  - 
 
I've just figured out a great way to play Popcorn movies on the chromecast, without the horrible stuttter associated with tabcasting:  Using the great Bubbleupnp android app.

This is what I did :

1. Open the Popcorn app on your PC and play a movie
2. Open the Bubbleupnp android app
3. Select your 'chromecast' device from the 'device' tab
4. In the 'playlist' tab, click 'Add Stream url' in the menu and enter http://192.168.0.5:8888  Obviously replace the IP address with your machine's IP address.  
5. It will play just fine and much better than using other chrome tabcasting techniques you may have read about.

I have some external data, number data , that changes every couple of hours, and I want to display this data on my watch face, either as overlayed text or as part of the background image. Do any of the current watch face creators allow this kind of functionality ?

It would be good if bubbleupnp could remember the last played position. I have some long pod cast episodes which this feature would come in useful for.

Poor woman. She means well but doesn't understand how progress is made and the barriers against it - such as this silly idea
 
Does anyone know what causes the bubbles on this straw to form?
