I was quite surprised when I got an area mail notification on my Nexus 6 that I bought through the Google Play Store.

I found that none of the many posts on this actually fully described what needed to be done based on the current defaults, so after I pieced it all together, I decided to dump in on the blog for my later reference.

I held off getting my Chromecast until just last month and I have to say it is the best bit of tech that I have gotten in a long time. I have basicly unplugged my XBMC box since I have been mainly using Google Play Movies, Plex, Youtube, PocketCasts, and a number of other apps that work with it. 

Hopefully they release a standalone DAC with Audiocast support that can hook into existing speakers and sound systems. I would also love to have a Sonos like setup where you can network multiple Audio cast devices in multiple areas playing the same audio.

Airdroid just got a public release, it looks very promising and has some cool features. I will need to do a full review later, their servers are under pretty heavy load right now.

Having lost quite a bit of weight over the last 7 months or so and I've found that it really comes down to calorie intake. Put yourself at a deficit and you will lose weight even without exercise.

Don't get me wrong exercise is good for you but you can literally watch TV all day as long as you eat fewer calories than you burn a day.

It is much easier to not eat a calorie than burn one. Also one day won't make our break you so enjoy Thanksgiving and makeup for it later in the week.

Yet another reason to hate Comcast, this is predatory on exactly the target market that can afford it the least.
If you haven't already contacted your state representatives, Congressman, and the FCC regarding the Comcast / Time Warner merger please do.

"In this trial, XFINITY Internet Economy Plus customers can choose to enroll in the Flexible-Data Option to receive a $5.00 credit on their monthly bill and reduce their data usage plan from 300 GB to 5 GB. If customers choose this option and use more than 5 GB of data in any given month, they will not receive the $5.00 credit and will be charged an additional $1.00 for each gigabyte of data used over the 5 GB included in the Flexible-Data Option."
